Technicolor hair is in the air, y'all. Yesterday, both Miley Cyrus and Rita Ora traded in their platinum locks for insanely awesome rainbow-colored hair. Miley debuted her "new liewkkk" on Instagram, which featured strands dyed (literally) every shade in the color spectrum. (Also, remember long-haired Miley? Awwww.) She paired her out-of-this-world wig with a makeup-free face and, um, not to get all stalker-y, but we're 99% sure she copped her colorful weave from Party City for only $17. (NYC Pride Parade 2015, here we come.)

If you've seen any pictures of Ke$ha recently, watched her video for "Timber," or caught the last few episodes of My Crazy Beautiful Life, you may have noticed her perma-blonde hair is now an ever-changing rainbow. Ke$ha debuted her bright 'do in September, then retreated to her tried-and-true blonde hue less than a month later.
As of late, though, K$ has returned to the colorful side. Hard. While she sometimes opts to color half her hair one color entirely and the other half a different color, she's also been messing around with random, multicolored strands. So, what's the deal? How is her hair not turning to straw and then falling out? Well, it looks like Ke$ha has discovered the miracle of hair chalk!

Go getcha some hair chalk. Dip-dyed ‘dos are officially happening again. We know this because, well, see above. When it comes to fashion, there's no doubt that Rita Ora is a risk-taker. (See also: antler ears, head-to-toe logo gear, combo pants, etc. etc.) But in terms of her hair, she’s pretty much kept it in the blonde spectrum–until now. Earlier this week, we got a glimpse of Rita’s rainbow chunks in a photo of a studio session she posted on Instagram. But the shot went without comment, so for all we knew, it was some temporary Manic Panic ish that she wanted to match with her new, floral Jeremy Scott raincoat. Well, that was not the case.
OMGZ. Our favorite Hillsie Lauren Conrad tie-dyed her blonde tips! Last week, she posted an image of multicolored strands on a blondie much like herself, claiming she was "obsessed" with this look—and we kind of don't blame her. Fortunately, she then polled her readers on her beauty site TheBeautyDepartment.com on whether she should take the purple-haired plunge and, lucky for us, the answer was a resounding "DO IT!" (Um, we may have voted. A lot. WHAT? LC SHOULD TAKE SOME FASHION RISKS, OK?!) And guess what? LC did not disappoint! Shortly after the poll, her hair became public property. She tweeted, "So this is happening..." and linked to a pic of blue and purple hair dye followed by a shot of her GORGE rainbow locks on her site. We're glad Lauren DIDN'T play it safe and that we got to weigh in on her next big beauty move. The perfect thing about just kissing the tips with color is that LC can play it safe in the front, but then have some fun and color (perf for summer, right?) in back.
We love this look sosososo much, and we can't WAIT to see these punky strands on Ms. Conrad from the front. Luckily, she posted a step-by-step tutorial on how to cop her look here!!

Singer M.I.A. isn't one to shy away from switching up her hair hue at a moment's notice, but what sets her apart from other chameleons (i.e. Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry), is that, save for the neon blue and green bobs that she rocked during performances in Los Angeles on Oct. 16 and in London on Nov. 13, she doesn't rely on wigs and hairpieces alone to shock and awe. Such was the case yesterday when M.I.A. posted a photo on her Twitter page of herself with a bleached blonde bob. Since it IS easier to dye platinum strands pink (a lot easier than it is to tint brunette strands in funky colors), does the lifted look mean there are more wild and crazy dye jobs in the artist's future? We think so!

It's turning out to be quite the colorful summer for hair! Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. both rocked bright colors over the weekend, and the looks were both saturated and intense. Nicki attended the BET Awards last night in Los Angeles with bright orange tresses. We've come to expect outrageous colors from Nicki, but M.I.A. — that girl threw us for a loop. She performed at the Vice & Intel Creators Project party in New York on Saturday with a totally different hair color than her typical plain black look. In fact, she rocked THREE different hues: Blue bangs, a red chunk in the middle, and yellow at the tips and ends. It was a rainbow of primary colors that looked rad as hell (not that we would ever try it ourselves). And let's not forget Katy Perry's now-epic blue wig from the 2010 MTV Movie Awards and her California Gurls single cover. This is the cheeriest beauty trend we've seen in a while. It's not every summer you see rainbows sprouting from people's heads.
