Unicorn Hair

I read a theory that Starbuck’s launch of the Unicorn Frappuccino may have inspired the current spring hair trend, but I feel like it’s been coming for a while. Pastels are always flattering, and dramatic, colorful hair isn’t a new trend. In fact, it’s a trend that’s been sneaking into the mainstream for the last few years. It’s even started to appeal to the older folks. For years, Beloved and I have each had our own cool hair color plans for when we retire (she’s going navy, I want lilac). But whatever the inspiration, full-on unicorn-colored hair has arrived this year in a big way!

I think it’s just gorgeous. No, I don’t know what you do when your roots start to grow out, but that’s not my problem. I just want to look at the pretty colors!

  1. As someone whose never dyed their hair (I just embrace my salt and pepper) I have no idea what work goes into creating and maintaining this type of hair but I always think it looks so striking. I like the versions where there’s a bit of really bold, saturated colour against the pastels.

  2. I live it. Half the kids in Ella’s class (5th grade) have some form of it. I finally let Ella do it last month – she looks amazing. I’ll send you a pic. We just did the bottom half, so roots aren’t the problem, but fading is. The colors fade pretty quickly. And… lilac is PERFECTION. Sooooo flattering! You’ll look amazing! Xo

  4. Colorful it is , but do you know how toxic most hair dye is. Not good.

  8. Gorgeous! Why not, right? I wouldn’t dare myself, but my daughter’s had some teal highlights put in. Looks so nice in her almost-ebony hair!
