Lily Allen goes over the rainbow with dramatic new hair colour

Lily Allen has decided to go over the rainbow ahead of her milestone 30th birthday next month, dying her blond locks in an edgy new way. The mother of two’s new look fades from bright green to candy-hued pink, and she seems to have been inspired by one of summer’s best fruits: watermelon.

“Not long till I’m 30,” she captioned the image, which sees her posing with a mock-surprise expression for a selfie. "One last hurrah on the hair front. watermelon hurr dun care. @alexbrownsell #funkytintlives."

The Hard out Here singer proudly showed off her new look later that day as she headed into West Hollywood for a spot of shopping. She complemented her quirky new look in a casual outfit consisting of a tie-dye patterned sleeveless crop top paired with cropped grey jeans. She completed the ensemble with black leather strappy flatform sandals and retro rounded sunglasses with reflective lenses, carrying all of her essentials in a brown rucksack.

The new hairstyle comes just a few weeks after Lily revealed she had chopped her hair into a short bob and fringe in a shade of platinum blonde. The pop star is no stranger to rocking vibrant and edgy hairstyles. She has dyed her hair in various different bright colours including blue, pink, green and yellows, as well as experimenting with different lengths including everything from pixie cuts to long, tousled waves.

Lily is currently residing in Los Angeles as she records new music. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the star’s next release – the singer has been keeping a relatively low profile in recent months, save for a performance at the Monaco Rose Ball last month, and an appearance at the pre-Oscars party hosted by Chanel.
