Seems as though the beauty world was feeling a tad jealous over the culinary realm’s endless rainbow frapps and toasts and cakes. While you’re not going to want to put this trend in your mouth the same as you would the aforementioned, rainbow confetti hair is deliciously playful.
Check out their gorgeous work:
The delicately placed bits of colour are almost muted as the originally bright hues fade, so it doesn’t feel as overwhelming as some of the full-on rainbow highlights and balayage of months past. The concept kind of looks like static that used to interfere with your television screen if the bunny-ear antennas weren’t pointing just so…assuming you’re old enough to get that reference. Or like a magic eye puzzle, where if you stare long enough some wild vision like a prancing unicorn will present itself.
Blondies of Melbourne is the same salon that dreamt up rainbow roots a few months back, so it should come as no surprise that these crafty Aussies are at it again with a more subtle iteration.
Karen Lewis, the salon’s owner, told Cosmopolitan that in order to achieve the look, you have to have ultra bright blonde hair or bleached locks, otherwise, the colour simply won’t show. “The colours will slowly fade back to the blonde base with each wash,” Lewis told the magazine. “As with all colours, the more frequently they are washed, the faster they will fade.”
Ultimately, it’s a captivating and unique look, and an easy entry-level way to join in on the rainbow craze.
