Well I think the way billie's hair is styled here it does look fake though I have very little doubt it's real. She just had a baby and all that so I would imagine that she is just letting it grow out.

On Megan, I can't decide either way. I think it depends on the shade you are going for. For one thing, dark brown and a peroxide blond would clearly not work,
i think firstly, definitely, the hair style has to be pretty natural and low maintenance to be able to pull it off.. when the hair is overly blown dry or straightened, too manicured etc i think it instantly looks fake. i agree with you that the contrast can't be too great either.. dark brown and very white blonde makes it look cheap.

and the lighting and quality of the photo might not be great but to be honest i think it looks the same in every picture of her.. and i think it has more to do with the other qualities of her personal appearance than the lighting.. she has a lot of makeup on, she looks very 'done', and that instantly ruins this look for me.. what's the point in having all that makeup on, having your hair overly styled, and then making it look like you're so effortless and low maintenance with your style that you've casually let your roots grow in?. that's not cool...that's weird. :p

i just think you need to be very natural to make it work.. so that it seems authentic.. you know, like you spent a lot of time in the sun or didn't have the money to get your roots done because you spent all your money on traveling or on a great vintage accordion or something.. or maybe you just simply forgot because you have other things to do than get your hair done at the same time every month..

the full face of makeup and overly manicured appearance doesn't work here.. it makes you look like a stripper at worst, or like you're trying extremely hard at best. phew ! that was lengthy..

It's safe to say this two tone hair isn't natural...

It kinda looks like she's dipped the ends of her hair in a paint tin.

I dont mind drews hair,, i think its the cut that makes it look a bit weird because its too blocked at the bottom ... If it was more straggly i say it would look really good...

I find it funny aussies call two toned hair 'the pip' I've heard of frosted Tips and Dip Dye but not Pip..great

I actually have three-toned hair-it's more the way that it is layered. When I got it coloured (hair modeling, yay), they took the top part and did that as a bleach/tone, then a part below that and did it as a toffee colour, and then the bottom is a dark, dark brown-darker than my eyebrows, actually. It's a different sort of thing but I love it.

I believe this is called color melting.
I love Lily Aldridge and Isabels the best for brunettes..
Does anyone have more images?
