Hair has taken some bold turns this year and for every single one we’ve managed to fall in love with the style. Whether its a catwalk trend like wet look hair or a global phenomenon like dip dying, the hair trends of 2012 have certainly made us look as hair is a new and very exciting light.
Probably the most sensational style of the year, making roots which were once frowned upon into the most stylish way to have your hair. Following the grunge trend of 2012, dip dye literally means having your hair essentially to look like it’s been dipped in dye from the ends.
With a cult following of celebrities like Kate Bosworth, Caroline Flack and Lauren Conrad this trend has soared and become this year’s must have hair style. Making growing out hair colour the trendiest thing to do.

This year has seen an introduction to colour like never before. With a whole rainbow of choice it’s now stylish to sport a pink streak or lilac dip dye in your hair. Making a colour rinse acceptable and enabling you to show off your quirky, flirty and creative side with ease.
The front runners for colourful hair this year go to Kelly Osbourne with her lilac locks that have had us gushing over it for the last few months. Nicki Minaj has also had us excited every time she steps out with her wide array of styles from green, pink and blue that make the hip hop queen a style icon in her own right.
