We know that dying the tips of your hair isn't a novel suggestion (we reported on the ombre trend back in October of 2009), but the recent crop of ladies sporting the technicolor ombre dye job is renewing our love for the punk hairstyle. We spoke to Zoe Weipert, an Editorial Colorist from Bumble and Bumble to get the exact deets on just how to execute this look for yourself, DIY-style. Zoe says that it's necessary to bleach the tips of your hair if you want to get the vividness and brightness that makes the look pop. Next, apply a bold semi-permanent hair dye, such as these from Manic Panic in whichever vibrant shade takes your fancy. Finally, make sure to take care of your hair after putting it through the bleaching process by using Bumble and Bumble's mending line, which includes a shampoo, conditioner, masque and leave in complex to keep your tresses looking lush.
