Nothing captures the wild and free festival spirit like rainbow hair. It’s the perfect time to get creative and experiment with your look. There are no rules when it comes to festival hair – so if you’ve always wanted to try the rainbow trend, seize the opportunity! Plus, there are many different variations on rainbow hair, so you’re sure to find one to suit you on our list.
For an intriguing take on rainbow hair, try a ‘hidden’ rainbow. Dye rainbow streaks into the lower section of your hair, keeping the top part natural. Doing so means the rainbow will only be visible when your hair is styled in an up ‘do or half-up, half-down look. If you leave your hair down, you’ll also show subtle flashes of the rainbow when you swing your hair or braid it.
The holographic trend has been popular across fashion and beauty for years, and now it’s hair’s turn for a multicolor makeover! There are several different ways to achieve a multi-faceted holographic hairstyle. For a beautifully blended look, your stylist may use the freehand halo prism technique. If you’re a fan of holo nails or accessories, why not try a holographic rainbow hairstyle?
Pastel Rainbow Hair
For a soft, pretty, and wearable version of rainbow hair, try a pastel rainbow. Sweet and feminine, pastel hair will give you a cute and ethereal look. However, to get the pastel rainbow look, you will need very light hair. Those who are natural brunettes should set aside enough time to bleach and tone their hair to icy blonde. Otherwise, you can get pastel rainbow hair by dyeing a platinum blonde real human hair wig.
Rainbow Braided Hair
Give your braids a fun, festival-ready twist by having your stylist braid in colorful extensions. Whether you choose box braids, Fulani braids, cornrows, or other braid types, adding a touch of the rainbow will take them to the next level. Add even more pops of color with your make-up for extra style points.
Rainbow Ombre Braided Hair
Ombré rainbow hair looks particularly beautiful when braided. That’s because the braids amplify the subtle gradient effect of the dye. Plus, braids of all kinds are a classic festival hairstyle, so pairing yours with a fresh and vibrant rainbow color is a must-try. Go for raised Dutch braids to make this look shine.
Short Rainbow Hair
Rainbow hair isn’t just for those with long hair. Short hair looks equally good with a multicolor style. For a standout finish, have your stylist use brighter rainbow tones. That will ensure your hair gets the attention it deserves, rather than fading into the background!
Long Rainbow Hair
As with any hair color session, rainbow hair will take longer to complete if your hair is very long. However, the results are worth the wait. Your stylist can create a wide variety of different rainbow looks if your locks are extra long. Plus, long rainbow hair is beautiful and will make you the center of attention at any festival. For that reason, it’s not for the faint-hearted!
