Sunset hair does what it says on the tin: combine shades of yellow, orange, red, pink and even blue to look like the colours of a bold, breathtaking sunset.

It's not an entirely new trend but last year's effort had far more of a chalky vibe. Sunset hair 2015 is definitely more of a head-turner.

And it works.

It's a look that's sure to stand out in a crowd but the mixture of painted highlights and balayage (a freehand highlighting technique) stops it looking too extreme.
