Throughout my entire life my mother stressed natural beauty. She never let me experiment when it came to hair trends: no dyes –- temporary or permanent, and no unconventional cuts. The worst was every September, while the other girls got their back-to-school highlights, I stuck to the same boring style.

As far as eye-catching goes, this hair editorial from the May issue of Vogue Italy is that and then some. These knock-off-your-socks hair colors modeled by Sasha Pivovarova, styled by Sam McKnight, and photographed by Emma Summerton include Flame, Lavender, and Pink. Seen here: a hint of bubble gum. We’ve see some of these hair trends out and about already — take, for example, women dyeing their hair gray on purpose, rather than hiding it. Surely, for locks this extreme, we’d recommend not trying this at home and letting your hairstylist handle your maxi-makeover. For hair-on-fire and grandma-violet, check out the rest after the jump.
