Lily Allen has debuted her “watermelon hair” – swapping her blonde locks for a pink and green hue ahead of her 30th birthday.

The Air Balloon singer is fast approaching her 30th birthday, which falls on May 2. And ahead of her big day, Lily decided to mix things up with a new look.

Mother-of-two Lily debuted her new look on her Instagram page on Thursday.

Posting a shot of the multi-coloured ’do, the star captioned the picture: "Not long till I'm 30, one last hurrah on the hair front. Watermelon hurr dun care (sic)."

Lily is no stranger to experimenting with colourful hair hues. She has previously sported shades including blue, purple and pink.

In an interview last year, Lily told Grazia magazine that the constant dyeing of her locks has left them in bad condition.

“Alex who does my hair – who owns Bleach – she was livid with me last week because she had bleached my hair but she didn’t have time to finish it so there were just a few orangey bits,” Lily said, back in December.

“It was really annoying me in the fringe and so I got a home bleaching kit and did it myself. She was like, ‘You’re a popstar; you can afford to get your hair done, don’t use an at-home bleaching kit!’ Then my hair went blue which was weird and it's kind of falling out here on the edges [of the fringe], so in answer to your question I don’t keep it in good condition."

Lily also told the publication that she doesn’t really see her hair changes as a form of self-expression. Instead, she thinks it’s a good way of having fun.

“Years and years ago I had pink hair, but the people who bleached it for me did a really bad job,” she said. “It started falling out and I just had to let it grow back. Always as a teenager I played with colours. It's not really an expression of how I’m feeling because you feel different every day, you can’t change your hair every day. It’s just a bit of a LOL really."
