We all agree that rainbow colored hair is shiny and stunning and doesn’t require you to be decisive about a color. But for those of us who struggle to make drastic hair decisions, we have even better news. There’s a colorful hair trend for those of us who aren’t ready to commit to a full head of rainbow hair: hidden rainbow hair. Get ready to dye for the cause and read on.
It’s stunning and allows for a more “classic” look, if you spend your time in settings where looking like a Lisa Frank ad is frowned upon.
“Hidden rainbows are placed in spots not normally seen unless the hair is up,” stylist Athena Golden, a hidden rainbow hair master, told The Huffington Post. “We usually place layers to give the peekaboo effect.”
So this is kind of like the fashionable, 21st century mullet. Business in the front, party in the back… A much classier party. And it perfectly matches the rainbow-vomiting snapchat filter.
You might not want to attempt this masterpiece at home, though.
If you’re dying for hidden rainbow locks, you might want to leave it to the pros— the process can be easily botched. According to Golden, it’s crucial to maintain the integrity of the hair while lightening it appropriately so the colors appear vivid. “Done wrong, the colors mix with the base tone of the hair and make a color not intended,” she told HuffPo.
But when it’s done right, this style will make you an Instagram sensation.
Since that’s what really matters in life.
Hidden rainbow hair is even more stunning / trippy when the hair is styled.
We just can’t look away.
We’re liking this a little better than the silver hair phenomenon.
BRB we’ll just be getting this done and constantly running our fingers through our hair.
