If you love dyeing your hair and are always on the hunt for new hair color ideas, you probably like to experiment a lot and have likely tried out a whole color palette already! Some days it almost seems impossible to come up with a fresh hair color when you’ve been through so many hairstyles already, but we’re going to take a wild guess here and say you haven’t had rainbow hair yet! This is a totally daring idea and you can bring it to life in the comfort of your own bathroom! Check out some epic ideas for DIY rainbow hair down below!

1. Peekaboo Rainbow Hair 


If the idea of walking around with rainbow hair still feels a little too out of the comfort zone for you, we recommend starting with Emily Susanah‘s tutorial. You can hide the rainbow part of your hair under the hair of your regular color and so pass as just another regular citizen until you  reveal the rainbow magic yourself!

2. Curly Rainbow Hair 


Having curls can often complicate your daily hairstyle routine, because curls tend to have a mind of their own! Dyeing your hair to all the colors of the rainbow is going to give you a wild and fierce look, so a few locks of untamed curly hair won’t seem out of place anymore! Get the tutorial at Jade Madden!

3. Wild Rainbow Hair 


There are many different ways to color your hair in a rainbow style, as you can see through the ideas that we’re sharing. Some rainbow hairstyles are softer and some are much bolder. Jingle Heart Art shares the process of coloring your hair on a rainbow color that screams wild and fearless!
