This has been a colorful year in terms of hair color trends! From bright saturated colors to more light and pastel hues, unnatural hair color has become exceedingly trendy. This trend has even made its way to the mainstream with celebrities like Katy Perry and Ke$ha debuting “rainbow,” hair. With different variations of this trend popping up everywhere, it is safe to say colorful hair isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
So is rainbow hair right for you? The great thing about this trend is there is a wide spectrum to choose from. There is not only color variation but also tone and saturation. For example, some skin tones might not pair well with a bright, bold, and supersaturated color like neon pink. However, a great alternative might be a subtle pastel peach or pink that appears somewhat faded.
Hair extensions are a great way to incorporate color into one’s tresses while forgoing some of the chemical damage. Many hair extensions made of genuine human hair can be dyed. The trendy cosmetics brand LimeCrime, has incorporated this colorful trend into their cosmetics line with lipsticks ranging from egg yolk-yellow to sky blue.
With the fun use of color on the rise, it is safe to say that colorful hair isn’t only a trend for teens. Many women are able to make this look work into adulthood and even in the workplace. I believe it is all about how it is presented. Pastel lavender hair can look très chic pulled back into a bun and topped off with some pearl earrings! If you are considering trying out this trend, I say, taste the rainbow!
