Hair trends come and go faster than you can say "milkmaid braids" — but ombré is only getting bigger. First spotted on the runways and Hollywood celebs, we're spying dip-dyed tresses all over the concrete catwalk these days.
Much as we love the downtown, cool-girl take on the trend (we're looking at you, Alexa!), we wanted to see if we could give a real girl the sleek, polished ombré hair that's all over red carpets this year. Inspired by Jessica Biel's honey-tipped chestnut locks, we teamed up with Call Me Cait's Caitlin Corcoran to show just how easy it is to transform yourself into a Hollywood goddess.
And to make sure you can follow along at home, we used L'Oréal Féria's Wild Ombré. The U.S.'s first at-home ombré kit makes it easy to get the look — even if you don't know a comb from a coloring cap.
Don't believe us? Check out Caitlin's capital-S stunning transformation ahead!
