Listen up, ladies! If you’ve been thinking of giving yourself a makeover courtesy of a hot new hair color, you need to find out what the hottest hues are. As usual, most style cues are taken from the celebrities we secretly (and not so secretly) obsess over. Blonde, brunette and red hair appear to be things of the past; a head full of pretty pastel strands is all the rage. Celebrities are gravitating toward this trend like no other, giving us plenty of inspiration to try it out on our own. Take a look at celebs who are totally owning the trend before you get the guts to take the plunge. Pastel perfection awaits!
