The ombre hair trend might be a little tired, but reverse ombre seems to be a different story. Backstage at the Jen Kao show, we spotted a few models with tips that were darker than their roots. Somewhere, Lauren Conrad and Alexa Chung are rushing to their respective hair salons right now.

Editor's note: The blog Hairdresser on Fire reminds us that Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty" video was somewhat ahead of its time, reverse-ombre speaking.
