As though colorful beams of light were caressing your hair, this pastel rainbow trend will add plenty of glam to your summer look.
Summer is here and there are so many beauty and hair trends to choose from to have the best summer pics of the year. From the classic golden balayage to really bright and crazy colors, there are tons of choices for you to pick. However, the one that has captivated the internet this season is pastel rainbow, also known as light rainbow. It’s the perfect combination of fantasy and subtlety, that will bring a fun and festive vibe to your summer look.
Like with any fantasy hair trend, you can go as far as your imagination wants, but the best thing about this style is its low-maintenance nature. Of course, to get this amazing effect you’ll have to work with a blonde base; the lighter the blonde, the clearer the colors will look. However, the trend can also be rocked by brunettes by bleaching only the sections the pastels will go.
In its more subtle version, the idea of this style is to create a prism effect on the hair, as though colorful beams of light were hitting your gorgeous mane. To achieve it, you’ll have to decide if you just want a section showered by these lights or if you want a balayage effect. If you already have blonde hair, you can just apply the pastels on the chosen sections for a more burnt color effect, or, if you want it to be full, bright pastel, you might have to bleach it as much as you can without damaging it.
As I mentioned before, you can go as far as you want. From a subtle hint to full pastel, unicorn fantasy, it all depends on your taste and style. The more intensity you want, the more maintenance you’ll need. However, since these are pastels, you won’t have to get as many touch-ups as you’d do with other fantasy looks, since it will just fade out without turning into another random color (like blue or greenish hues). Just avoid washing it every single day and use shampoos for dyed hair, and you’ll rock the amazing pastel rainbow hair trend for almost an entire month.
