Don’t worry if you are not ready for this life changing hair color trend. Starting out with the “secret rainbow” or “hidden rainbow” styles can be more of a subtle way to get your feet wet. Try styling with a high bun or half-up braids, you can show off your magical hidden rainbow colors hidden underneath. If you’re not into vivid rainbow colors, try pastel rainbow tones that will make your hair look like shimmering unicorn hair.
