Hair color - whether you do it yourself or leave it to the pros - can be a risk. And even the best-tressed girl can have a hair slipup or two - celebrities included!

To avoid dye-job disasters, take these photos to your hairstylist and tell her "Anything but this!"

Celebrity Dye-job Disasters

    Disaster #1: Skunklike stripes
    While we love Christina Aguilera for her chameleonic beauty tricks, we're not totally enamored with her skunklike highlights. Christina, we beg of you: Pick one hair color (and we must say, we love you as a blond).

    Disaster #2: Orange glow
    While Scarlett Johansson often pulls off the old-Hollywood look perfectly, the orange tint in her hair comes across as more geriatric than Jean Harlow.

    Disaster #3: Crazy highlights
    In the early days of her career, Jessica Simpson experimented-unsuccessfully-with streaks and highlights. Thank goodness she later met Ken Paves: The hair guru's lustrous extensions and style expertise made Simpson a hair DO.

    Disaster #4: Off-color color
    Before becoming a Hollywood golden girl, Nicole Richie was more of a black, white and red gal. We applaud the blond new mommy for both cleaning up her act and settling on one gorgeous hair color!

    Disaster #5: Bleach babe
    While Rihanna always has an inspiring hairstyle-from her head-turning bob to her new pixie cut-the oddly placed, single bleached tendril is one trend to skip. When you wear hip, edgy makeup like she does, there's no need for kooky hair color.

    Disaster #6: Distracting dyes
    Dear Joss Stone: It's hard to pay attention to your awesome voice and stunning blue eyes when your long, multicolor hair gets in the way! Stay true to your naturally beautiful self and skip the dye job next time!

    Disaster #7: Not so pretty in pink
    Cute girl-next-door star Rachel McAdams shocked us when she turned up on the red carpet with pink-and-blond hair. Leave the candy colors to rebel rockers-like Pink, Avril Lavigne and Lily Allen-and proudly work own your natural color.

    (Unless of course, you go pink to support a good cause! Check out our photos of the inspiring Pink Hair for Hope hairstyles and find out how to score the temporary 'do. 100 percent of the proceeds go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation!)

    Disaster #8: Not so red-hot
    During her Destiny's Child days, Kelly Rowland was known to sport a red-hot pixie cut. Guess she didn't know that a short, simple dark-haired 'do makes sexy eyes stand out.

    Disaster #9: Scarlet letter
    As her costume ideas for Cashmere Mafia and Sex and the City illustrate, Patricia Field clearly has a great eye for color-but mostly when it comes to clothes! While we love that she's stuck to her own signature shade, it'd be cool to see what her real hair color is.

    Disaster #10: Hyper-hues overload
    At the MTV Awards, Keri Hilson sported too many hair colors to count. It is possible to have too much of a good thing: Keep the two-tone look to your nail polish and focus on one main makeup color-like Keri Hilson's green eyeliner.
