Rainbow hair has become one of this year’s hottest beauty trends. Everyone from teen girls to grown women are opting for rainbow colored locks, and it’s no wonder – it looks so cool, so summery, and so bright – who wouldn’t want to be surrounded with the colors they love? Perhaps some do it to represent certain things that have meaning to them, and others do it because they love the colors they choose. Today, Lionesse would like to dive into some of the secrets behind rainbow hair and provide them to you in this article below.
Many people aren’t aware that when they decide they want to opt for a rainbow hairstyle or vibrant, unnatural color, they will need to complete the process of bleaching the hair. Whether they are opting for dyed rainbow tips, or streaks, or a full head of color, bleach is the go-to product to use before opting to apply the color. Without applying the bleach, the color more than likely will just wash right out and won’t even take to the hair. After you complete the bleaching process, it’s important to thoroughly wash the hair, condition the hair, and then blow-dry the hair or allow it to air dry completely before going in with any sort of rainbow hair color. If the hair is not dry, the dye will not take. Remember, bleaching the hair does damage the hair, but if you’re only dying the ends or tips of your hair, you don’t have much to worry about in terms of long term effect or damage – the ends can always be trimmed if need be.
Choose Colors You Love
When it comes to choosing rainbow hair colors, you can feel free to choose colors you love. Rainbow hair is all about having fun. You can actually opt for just about any color you want, and combine them with other colors as well, without worrying too much about whether or not they suit you. That would be like holding a box of Crayola markers up to your hair and asking yourself, “Which marker would look better in my hair?” The point here is to love the colors you choose and just do it! If you are combining more than one color with another, just be sure those two colors go together well before beginning the application, such as light pink and light blue, fuchsia and teal, or sea-green and lavender purple.
Choose a Rainbow Style that Suits Your Lifestyle
If you work in a respectable office position, chances are, they won’t take kindly to you showing up in the office with a hair full of Rainbow Brite. In this case, you can still dye the ends of your hair whatever rainbow colors you want to – and opt for wearing your hair up when at work, and down when you’re at play. If you work in an art studio, chances are, you will be able to get away with a full head of color. Be sure to make the right decision before going head first – literally.
