BEYONCÉ | "Heading towards summer, we all want to look a bit brighter. Beyoncé's look has to be lifted with bleach has her base colour is naturally very dark. The colour will be placed on the top layers to show depth from underneath. To get this look, your colourist will place vertical sections from roots to the ends, and the highlights will need to be quite thick. As it's a cool blonde colour, you'll need to use blue shampoo to stop the warmth from naturally coming through. I would also use Olaplex with this, as the colours will have many levels to lift and in turn the hair may suffer. Using Olaplex before and after will strengthen the hair and protect if from serious damage." Price: Dhs560-800 | Maria Dowling, creative director, Maria Dowling Salon, +971 4 345 4225

JENNIFER LOPEZ | "This is a more natural approach to ombre, without too much difference between the roots and the ends. It has been achieved by using a gloss through the top to create the depth in colour, and shine smudging down to help the gradual blend of colour change. Then we'd use a free-hand spatula technique to create the light ends, which allows you to really customise the colour and enhance a bespoke ombre. Then, lastly, to achieve the soft honey hue, we'd apply a toner that will also give the hair a beautiful sun-kissed shine."

JOAN SMALLS | "Joan has a grown-out colour here, as you can see she has regrowth at her base. However, the colour would have been achieved by using textured free-hand light highlights, and we always work with Olaplex. This ensures the products keep the quality of the hair as it is lightening. Once we've reached the desired lightened tone, we rinse. Next, we would come through with an all-over base breaker, which means a full colour from roots to end is applied, allowing the colour to slightly lighten the natural base and tone the prepared highlights all in one step. To really enhance the colour, use a large curling wand to create curls like Joan's, then brush through and shape the curls with a wide tooth comb, and finish with EIMI's Stay Styled light spray."

GIGI HADID | "To achieve Gigi's look for someone whose original hair colour is brown, you apply a very thin section of highlights on various parts of the head using L'Oréal Blonde Studio, then process the hair until the lighter yellow undertones are achieved. Then rinse and shampoo. Next, tone the hair with L'Oréal Dia-Light 9.12 + developer, depending on hair quality at the area, then tone the rest of the hair with Dia-Light 9.13 + developer 15 for about five minutes. Wash the hair and add an in-salon treatment, such as Kerastase's Fusio Dose Ultra Patent Care, or an at-home treatment, such as Color Care Kerastase Chroma Riche Shampoo and conditioner."

MIRANDA KERR | "Miranda's colour has been placed more underneath the hair, which has a lot less maintenance and also ensure a softer colour. Go for the warmer tones if you want Miranda's look, and I would recommend Como Colour in base 6. Make sure you don't over-highlight. Leave your root regrowth at least 6-8 weeks to avoid putting highlights on top of highlights. Price: Dhs560-800 | Maria Dowling, creative director, Maria Dowling Salon, +971 4 345 4225

LILY ALDRIDGE | "This look can suit any hair colour is very easy to wear, but if you have dark hair, it can take a few visits to the salon to achieve the desired lighter look. Lily has a rich chocolate base colour, with golden brown and mahogany tones throughout. Depending on your base colour, you may want to add some richness to your roots by applying a colour that will compliment your skin tone. To replicate the look, apply highlights from the brows down, at varying lengths. By taking sections of the hair and backcombing the section, you can create a very natural highlight. This is the balayage technique. Lily has two-three colours to achieve her natural and blended look, which can be finished off with a toner for added polish and shine, as well as further blending the colour."

IZABEL GOULART | "Izabel's colourist would have used a few different techniques to get this colour: finer highlights all over to begin with, then highlights around these fine lights in varying tones. There is more colour around the hairline to brighten up the face. This technique and tone works well on darker hair. The colour may have been applied to show a bit of root or perhaps her colour is growing out, but either way it has a beautiful sun-kissed effect for summer. One tip, is to use a blonde shampoo to keep the highlights looking fresh, and to always do regular treatments in the salon and at home."

MISCHA BARTON | "Mischa is sporting a very on-trend colour, achieved by using balayage technique. It's been seen all over the red carpet and is a huge trend for S/S16. It works in tandem with your natural colour, making roots less obvious and therefore giving you longevity from your hair colour. To do this technique in salon, you would create a fine balayage effect using bespoke baby highlights or babylites that would flatter and blend in with the hair's natural colour for a summer look. Then, at the backwash, a toner would be used to soften the hair and bestow a cool or warm hue, depending on your natural skin and hair colour."

EMILY BLUNT | "Emily's colour is actually very easy colour to achieve on natural hair, as well as being easy to maintain. The approach is a two-tone ombre free-hand technique using two different colours - one a super-natural lift and the other a beach blonde that has then been toned to achieve the coolness shown here."

JESSICA ALBA | "Jessica's light brown base and golden tones work best on light to medium brown hair and medium skin tones. Her colourist has given her a more sun-kissed highlighted look by applying one or two colours, which are slightly lighter and more golden than her natural colour throughout. If you are looking for this soft and natural effect, ask for a light balayage or sun-kissed highlights, starting close to your roots and moving down. If your roots need some additional depth, you can darken them as well with this look, which will then enhance the balayage lightening technique.
