The most memorable bridal looks of the year.
From subtle ombre highlights to shocking pink strands –2012 was full of funky (and functional) hair color trends.

It seemed that everyone in Tinsletown had scarlet fever because red locks were hotter than ever. Both Jessica Chastain and Holland Roden both rocked red-hued ‘dos this year.

And while platinum blond strands, a la Miley Cyrus, may not be for the faint of heart, it’s a color showstopper.

Color streaks were also a hot hair trend this year, and celebs like Chloe Moretz and Christina Aguilera are fans.

If you’re not ready for all-over color like Katy Perry’s ever-changing rainbow hair, a pop of purple or a hint of electric blue can be achieved with chalk, spray-on color or clip-in extensions.

For a less extreme change, ombre locks, like Beyonce’s, can be subtle, offer an instant glow and are the perfect color compliment for the ultimate lazy girl.

As these celebs can attest, a sassy new color is a quick way to update your look for the New Year. So get inspired by Hollywood’s colorful strand stars of 2012, and think about giving your hair an end-of-year update.
