So, Beyoncé changed her hair . . . again. This time it wasn't the cut but the color that had us gawking. She was spotted with husband Jay Z at the LA Clippers game in Oklahoma City last night with peroxide-blond curls. And you can also see her newly dyed mane in the photo snapped above with one of her fans, who shared the moment on Instagram. She balanced her blinding bright hair color with a vampy wine lipstick. If you haven't been following along, Beyoncé has taken us on a roller coaster of hair emotion this year. First with her pixie cut, then with the bob, and now this. We don't know if Beyoncé will have this same hairstyle next month, so you better vote quick! And check out more shots of Beyoncé's new look here.
It seems Demi Lovato is still in her blue period. The X Factor judge stepped out for the premiere of Disney's Frozen last night with her freshly colored hair pulled back into a tousled updo. Perhaps it was in spirit on the film, but Demi's hair was a rich, radiant shade of blue, darker and richer than the colors she's tried before. She complemented her azure mane with a neutral makeup palette that featured a shimmering bronze shadow dusted all over her lids. What do you think of Demi's jewel-toned hair?
Something is wrong with this picture. Miley Cyrus posted a couple Instagram shots sans eyebrows this morning. That's right, her formerly lush brunette brows are gone. We're suspecting it's a case of bleach, but there is always a chance that she shaved them off entirely. She debuted her new look on social media as she posed with friends Miranda Kerr and Mert Alas. Excuse us while we play "Where's Waldo?" eyebrow edition, but in the mean time: what do you think of Miley's latest hair-color stunt?

Kim Kardashian's blond hair has been one of the most talked-about hair updates of the year, and it seems Khloé liked it so much she copied the look. She was spotted recently with lightened strands from the middle of her hair to her ends but stayed brunette at the roots. While Kim's color is more caramel, Khloé took her highlights into much lighter territory. Which Kardashian blonde do you like best?
Our Pinterest feed is full of colorful hair inspirations — the pastel, dip-dyed kind — and L'Oréal Professionnel is bringing that look to the salon. The brand is launching Hairchalk, which comes in eight temporary shades like blue, pink, and green. "It allows us to go toward younger women, women who love changes, who aren't necessarily [attracted to coloring]," Ségolène de Noray, marketing director of L'Oréal Professionnel and Essie, told WWD.
The Hairchalk color fades after two to 10 washes, depending on your hair color, and will also be available for purchase in salons for at-home treatments. Brand ambassador Alexa Chung showed off her braided look accented with L'Oréal Professionnel's Hairchalk (pictured above) on Instagram. The collection hits European salons this month, while we'll have to wait until March to get it Stateside. Each bottle will retail for $24 and has up to 10 treatments.
Last night, after an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman, Claire Danes stepped out with newly dyed hair. She ditched her longtime blond locks for a strawberry-blond hue, which was only enhanced by her bright red ensemble. The colder months are the perfect time to try out a darker hair color, and Claire made sure to darken her eyebrows to go with her new look, too. She complemented her new red hair color with a sexy smoky eye. We're loving this color swap on the Homeland star, but we want to know what you think!
Jada Pinkett Smith is never one to shy away from an out-of-the-box hairstyle, but she's taken her edgy style to the next level. The actress was spotted out and about last night sporting a voluminous ponytail that showed off her shaved sides . . . bleached a shocking shade of blond. Her style was accentuated by her over-the-top pompadour and ombré locks. That's three hair colors for Jada at this point, and her bleached sides are definitely awe-inducing, but are you a fan or not?
Ever since Katy Perry hit the pop music scene in 2008 with "I Kissed a Girl," she's been known for her brightly colored aesthetic. The bold colors in her costumes have translated to her beauty look in the form of over-the-top nail art, rainbow eyelids, and, most prominently, her hair. Katy's mane has been practically every color in the rainbow over the years, from blue and pink to red and even yellow. Celebrate the songstress turning 29 today with a look back at her most memorable hair looks.
It can happen to even the most skilled at-home colorist: you use a box color to dye your hair, and the hue comes out much darker than you'd hoped. But believe it or not, you don't have to suffer with a hue that's not for you. Keep reading for our tips on how to lighten a botched dye job.
- Try a clarifying shampoo: These types of cleansers are full of color-stripping surfactants (the stuff that makes your shampoo and soaps lather). The faster you can get to your freshly dyed hair, the better; just make sure you deep condition afterwards.
- Call the hotline: If you experience unwanted results from an at-home hair color, immediately call the hotline number on the side or back of the box. The company representative can offer you professional advice on what to do next.
- Face the facts: The only true way to lighten color is to remove it. But once that unwanted color has been removed from your hair, sometimes toners have to be added to color-correct. Sure, there are color-removing products like L'Oreal ColorZap ($12) readily available at the nearest beauty supply store, but if your too-dark color is still not looking right, heading to a professional is probably the best option.
How to prevent it in the first place: Since semipermanent or demipermanent colors typically fade a lot faster than permanent colors, they are often more gentle for the home colorist. And when coloring your hair at home, go only one to two levels lighter or darker than your natural hair color to avoid "oh no" moments. While most box color includes a description of what the shade will be (such as medium-light brown), keep in mind that level one equals black and level 10 is light blond.
