Nothing brightens up that dull transitional period between winter and spring like a hair colour change. In fact, with Frank Ocean switching to a bright shade of blue recently, it seems jazzing up your hair is 'having a moment'.

Going blonde has always been iconic, with Mark Ronson and Ryan Gosling both taking the plunge. We asked hair expert Lyndell Mansfield, the brains behind the barnets of Beth Ditto, Frank Ocean and Noel Fielding, to offer up her tips on how to bleach your hair at home. 

Obviously follow her instructions carefully and make sure to use specialist hair bleach. We wouldn't want you to have any accidents. And remember, these things take time, so pay attention and be über careful when following these steps.
