In this photo gallery, I feature 20 hot hairstyle trends for 2012 including fishtail braids, dip-dye and ombre hair color, long locks on older women and a few short hairstyles that are to die for.

This photo features ombre hair color, which remains one of the 5 Most Popular Hair Color Trends. For women with dark hair who want a change, or for those of you who like to experiment with color, this is a fun option. Ombre creates the effect of "surfer hair" -- making it appear as if your summer blonde has grown out.

See photos and learn more about ombre in this photo gallery of 20 Amazing Ombre Hairstyles.
