20 Celebs Who’ve Dip-Dyed Or Streaked Their Hair

Earlier this week, Lauren Conrad arrived at a book signing -- for her fourth novel, The Fame Game (the first book in a new trilogy) -- with a decidedly noticeable new 'do.

Hair Dos & Don’ts: Good Crazy Color Vs. Bad Crazy Color

I cannot lie: there must be a bit of Hot Topic teen buried somewhere within me, because I have an undeniable attraction to unnaturally-hued hair, specifically colors more commonly found in a 64-pack of Crayolas — you know, the nice one with the sharpener.

Will You Lighten Your Hair For Summer?

Typically, light hair is for the summer and dark hair is for the winter. But recently, I decided to buck the trend and colored my hair jet black (well it was supposed to be Midnight Blue, which is black with a hint of dark blue, but I have yet to notice any blue). It had…
