Lily Allen Has Rainbow Hair — Here's How To Copy The Colorful Look Yourself

When it comes to making a statement, Lily Allen doesn't turn to chunky necklaces or colorful clutches to do the talking — she's all about the hair. It seems like every time we see the songstress on the red carpet or on her Instagram, she's rocking a new 'do. And of course, it's not just any 'do either. Whether she's rocking blunt bags with blue highlights or a bright yellow fishtail, Allen loves to experiment with colors and cuts. I don't even know how her hair manages to stay on her head (maybe she uses wigs and extensions?). And while all her looks are good and fun, I am the most jealous of her latest look — a Strawberry Shortcake meets Rainbow Brite dye paired with sparkly green eyeliner. It's color-wheel heaven.

Let's dissect her newest look a little deeper, shall we? If you follow Allen on Instagram, then you know she's been rocking a gorgeous pink-orange ombre for the past few weeks now. But instead of keeping the roots dark, Allen decided to go brighter, opting for purple and pink. The result is a perfect mix of colors that have us craving rainbow sherbet. Whoever did her hair did an fantastic job of blending. You can see all of the colors on its own, but it somehow mixes together so seamlessly.

If you're looking to get Lily Allen's exact look, I'd advise consulting with a professional colorist. However, if you want to capture the "essence" of Allen's rainbow sherbert locks, consider getting several different colors of hair chalk or a full set like this one from Urban Outfitters. I'd start with orange and yellow all over and then go in with pink and purple at the top of your head. Make sure to blend!

To complete Allen's multi-colored look, you can't forget the eyes. Grab a violet-colored liquid liner, like this one from NYX Cosmetics, and draw on a dramatic winged-cat eye.


Next, get your paws on two different glittery green eyeliners, like these from Sephora's collection. Just like her hair, Allen creates an ombre line using two different shades of green. Again, make sure to blend!


Top off your look with a pair of false eyelashes, like these from Ardell.


Et Voilà! You have officially been Lily Allen-fied. Send us your photos if you decide to rock her rainbow 'do!
