Rainbow Hair is the colour trend that has taken the world by storm! Think cotton candy pink and sea foam green to sky blue.
Gone are the days of playing it safe with hair colour, the bolder and brighter the better! It’s all about vivid hair colour.
If you are addicted to Instagram and Pinterest as much as we are, you would have come across the hashtags #rainbowhair, #unicornhair and #mermaidhair.
All these terms refer to the colourful dyed hair trend, which showcases colours from the rainbow using a bold or pastel colour palette. It’s all about Rainbow Hair to embrace your inner unicorn or mermaid! And we just simply love it!
Katy Perry is a big fan of Rainbow Hair. From cartoon bubble gum pink hair and soft pastel lavender to striking blue hair and deep purple, she has rocked many hair colours on the red carpet and helped to establish this hair trend!
This look works well on medium length (see our blog post on Medium Length Hairstyles) to long hair. Whether you want to rock every colour of the rainbow, or simple pick one, this trend will have you feeling bold!

Hot on the heels of Rainbow Hair is Hidden Rainbow Hair, a trend that has emerged over the last 6 months.
If you aren’t quite ready to commit to full-time Unicorn Hair, but still want to experiment with hair colour, opt for this ‘underlights’ technique where your secret Rainbow Hair lies underneath your natural hair colour.
You don’t have to use all the colours of the rainbow. Rocking one vivid hair colour also creates that statement look you have been lusting after!
