Colorful ombre hair was THE beauty trend of summer 2012, with fans like Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and Dakota Fanning riding this rainbow wave throughout the season (and inspiring everyone else to do the same!). But while Demi and Sel may have reverted to more natural shades after a few weeks, Dakota’s clearly still feeling her pink hue from last year— so much so, that she’s brought it back! It’s hard to believe that it was last January when we first spotted the Very Good Girls actress showing off her dip-dyed watermelon locks out and about in Los Angeles. Keeping the rest of her hair a natural blonde, this ends-only approach gave the star an effortlessly edgy vibe that’s wearable enough for everyone too nervous to go all the way. In other words, this ’do is an image practically cemented into our memories, so it’s no huge shock that this recent snap of Dakota working an identical style naturally caused a double take.
If Dakota’s déjà vu look is any indication, maybe ombre hair isn’t such a flash-in-the-pan fad, after all. We admit, she MAY have jumped the gun on the summery style— the weather is still nowhere near warm in New York and the hot pink does look slightly out of place against her gray trench, beanie, and boots. But hey, if you’re ready for spring, sporting a wishful-thinking hairdo is definitely one way to do it.
Are you into Dakota’s new-slash-old look?
