Jesy Nelson is never one to keep things boring when it comes to her hair.

Most recently she debuted a new platinum grey colour, with black highlights. Think Christina Aguilera Fighter era if you're struggling to visualise it.

However, like most of us, Jesy clearly had the itch to change her colour again as we transition into the colder months.

Taking to Instagram stories, Jesy showed a new '90s inspired colour and some seriously contrasting highlights.

After what feels like year of balayage and super soft, super natural colour, chunky, streaky highlights are officially black.

If the thought of that gives you flashbacks to being called a bumble bee at school, don't worry. These intentional blocks of colour can be just as flattering as balayage... if done correctly.

As most of us veer towards darker shades in autumn/winter, Jesy has returned to her roots and gone for a natural brunette colour all over.

Except for two chunky flashes of blonde colour at the front of her face.

If you're thinking of going for a dramatic colour change i.e. blonde to brown, this is a great compromise as you still get all the brightening impact of the blonde.

Paired with her khaki beanie and natural makeup, Jesy has the exact vibe we want to achieve as we approach spooky season.

Word of warning though, this kind of colour is most definitely best left to the professionals, so don't even think about buying one of those home bleaching kits.

Unless you really want to relive the hell that year 8.
