Questionable Beauty Trend : Dip Dyed Hair

I know I'm likely to get lots of opinions on questioning this oh-so-popular beauty trend right now, so here I go...What's up with the DIP DYED HAIR look??

Granted, I always caution myself questioning any beauty trend because I think there are NO hard fast RULES when it comes to hair and makeup - experimenting is everything.  And never say never, because goodness knows I've questioned things before, and then a year later end up trying it on for size and actually liking the one trend I vowed never to sport and eating my words!!  

I know hair chalks and dip dying your hair rainbow bright colors are everywhere and everyone is doing it...everyone in Hollywood that is.  Have I seen it around my neck of the woods in real life?? - hardly at all.  It's a very happy and colorful trend to look at, but is it really that pretty and flattering on?? I can't decide.  It borderlines a bit trashy on some, while Lauren Conrad actually pulls it off by pairing it with a classic pony and perfectly winged liner.  

I think when you do this trend, your outfit + makeup either make or break which way this dip dyed look can go - cartoonish or cute.   

What do you think of this dip dyed hair trend - am I way off base or right on target?  Also, have you personally tried it or is really just the celebrity crowd we see sporting it?

At first I thought it was trashy but lately I've shocked myself by thinking it was kind of cute. I don't think I'd ever do it myself, but done right I think it's a fun trend for the younger or more stylish crowd!

Maybe it's a California thing? i'd say about 30% of the girls i see out and about have some portion of their hair a bright color. Age range from 10-30 easily. i have some pink, blue & purple chalk and do it every so often in a braid or bun so it's just a small colored section swirling through
it's not permanent so why not? ;)

@KathyStevens - you could rock it with that pretty blonde hair girl:)
@Paigeemoe - I can see it being a CA thing bc of the warm CA sun and all the blondes out there!! I think I might be a bit jealous bc you never see this trend on brunettes like myself bc it doesn't show up as well:) I agree, it's not permanent so have FUN with it!!
