Laura Whitmore totally rocked Coachella festival at the Empire Polo Club in California this weekend (12 April). And she came up with a cunning way of creating temporary dip-dye colour on the ends of her hair – she used her lipstick!

Laura is getting major love from us style-loving Reveal girls right now and this genius hair trick has totally catapulted her to the top of our 'we want to be your mate' list!

We can always rely on Coachella to kick off the festival season with a bang – how could it not when the likes of Kate Bosworth, Vanessa Hudgens, Paris Hilton and Kylie and Kendall Jenner are in attendance?

And Laura was totally feeling the festival love by getting creative with her hair and beauty regime.

Now we're sure the MTV presenter doesn't have the same festival woes as the rest of us as she'll probably have all manner of home comforts at her disposal. Most importantly, a shower!

But still, we love her ingenuity when it comes to switching up her hairstyle using the contents of her make-up bag.

Laura posted this snap above on Instagram on Sunday (13 April), with the words:

"DIY hair!!! The things you can do with red lippy."

Yes, the clever little minx used her lipstick to create red, dip-dyed ends on her sexy blonde hair.

Why have we never thought of that?! We're so off to wade through our stash of bright lippies to see what fabulous creations we can create for Glastonbury...

We did wonder, however, whether bright red lippy on blonde hair might stain, but on speaking to some of our hairdresser friends, they assured us that as long as your hair is in decent condition, it should wash out pretty easily.

Just make sure you use a good deep cleansing shampoo like Pantene Clarifying Shampoo, £4.69,, and apply it to dry hair first to really cut through that lipstick.

After rinsing, shampoo again to make sure you really get rid of it all, then condition as normal.
