We’ve been spotting a rather unlikely color trend lately: tangerine orange. Rather than sporting the pastel hair that everyone seems to have, blogger Mina of The Lethal Lipstick has been rocking a sherbet orange ‘do. Not quite a redhead, and not quite a blonde, Mina is walking a fine line with her color. Would you be brave enough to embrace this orange color?

This timeless cut makes Anne look fresh and youthful, and it certainly is a welcome change from her old safe cut.
