Ready to add a pop of color to your locks? Rainbow hair is the ultimate expression of creativity and individuality, but it’s crucial to get the right shade and care for your hair properly to maintain that vibrant look. To help you understand the ins and outs of achieving and maintaining rainbow hair, we consulted with Linda Miller, a seasoned hairstylist with over 15 years of experience in the industry.

Choosing the Right Shade

When it comes to choosing the right shade of rainbow hair, Miller suggests considering your skin tone. “For fair skin, go for cooler tones like pastel pink, blue, and green. If you have a medium skin tone, opt for warmer shades such as orange, red, and yellow. Lastly, for a deeper skin tone, vibrant colors like purple, deep red, and blue are great choices,” she advises.

Maintaining Rainbow Hair

To keep your rainbow hair looking vibrant, Miller recommends using a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. “When washing your hair, use cold water to help seal the cuticle and prevent color fading,” she adds. Additionally, a color-depositing conditioner can help refresh the color in between salon visits. If you’re not ready for a full head of rainbow hair, you can try out the trend with a few peekaboo highlights or a hidden rainbow underlayer.
