Dua Lipa's new beauty makeover will have you tickled pink!

The pop star recently kissed her dark brunette hair goodbye and opted for something a lot more fun and electrifying for the summertime: bright pink hair. If anything, Dua is the latest celebrity to tap into the Barbiecore trend that's been taking over the internet.

The bold shade has garnered so much buzz in the last few months, especially after photos emerged of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling from the set of the upcoming Barbie movie.  And the "Hallucinate" singer isn't the only star to get in on the hot pink hair trend. Celebs like Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox have also embraced pink hair

Now, Dua is channeling the iconic color. She debuted her epic transformation in campaign photos for her latest collaboration with Puma.

"loved creating and designing this collection," the 26-year-old music sensation wrote on Instagram, alongside images that showcased her new 'do and the sporty-chic clothes.

Chris Appleton was the mastermind behind Dua's hair color, which he dubbed, "Candy crush pink" on July 13.

"Pink make [sic] the boys wink," the celebrity hairstylist captioned a separate Instagram post that showed behind-the-scenes moments of the Puma photoshoot. "lil bts of the magic." 

All the Times Celebrities Channeled Barbie

Although Chris didn't share any other details about the Grammy winner's look, it appears it was a temporary change. The "Levitating" singer is already back to her brunette roots, per a short video clip she posted on Instagram Stories on July 15.

However, this isn't the first time Dua has switched up her hairstyle and we're going to take a wild guess that it won't be her last!
