  • Can't decide which pastel hair color you want more? Why not try both, Ke$ha (a lá Cruella Deville) style.

  • Make a temporary change with a mohawk braid — aka a braid that has the aesthetic of a faux mohawk. Jennifer Morrison's from the Met Gala is absolutely gorgeous.

  • An ombré pixie wouldn't be the greatest of ideas. Instead, copy Jennifer Hudson's two-tone color. Separated into two sections, the hair on top has a caramel hue while the bottom strands are black.

  • Shaving the sides of the head, but leaving the hair long on top like Jada Pinkett Smith is the smart choice for the indecisive gal. Pony it up for an edgy look or leave the hair down to camouflage the shaved sides.

  • A simple, subtle way to go drastic — the sleek wet look like Emmy Rossum. While hair is wet, use a light hair gel to coat all the hair around the head, finishing above the ears. Let the rest of the hair air dry or blow dry on low to create an obvious change in texture.

  • A mullet with micro bangs like Rihanna...if you want it, make it happen! Bonus points for stellar blue lipstick.
