As winter fades and spring awakens, we are enhancing our ombre hued hair by taking a few cues from Rainbow Brite. With the warm weather coming in, New Yorkers are ditching their all-black looks for some colorful springtime cheer.  So why not add a multi-colored kick to your hair tips?

We’ve decided to take on this challenge and dip-dye my hair, mermaid style (beware brunettes, you’ll have to commit to a minor bleach job).  My freshly bleached tips went from purple to blue to green, giving me a cool hued rainbow effect, without going too crazy.  Since April is all about being conscious of the environment and the products we use, go with Manic Panic, a cruelty free and vegan hair dye.  Check out the final result:


Trend of the Week: Rainbow Brite Tips


For more of our favorite rainbow tipped hair styles, check the gallery below as well as our feature from last fall when we first spotted the trend.  Lauren Conrad’s beauty blog, The Beauty Department also give pretty good instructions on how to get the dye job done.  Send in your results to [email protected] and we’ll tweet the pictures out!
