The world is literally your oyster when it comes to finding the right multi-hair color inspo you need! To narrow down the options (and make the choice easier for you) we spoke to Enrique Lopez, Chilean Redken stylist, for his expert advice on the best rainbow hair ideas you need to try and exactly how to keep it looking fresh and vibrant.

Dream in color, while rocking the brightest shades out there! Whether you start with dark brown hair or something lighter, you"ll be excited to try these stunning looks.

3 Gorgeous Multi-Hair Color Ideas You Need To Try

A quick PSA before embarking on the multi-hair color dye journey: Do not attempt this at home.

Our expert explains why:

“Multi-hair color or rainbow is a complex color service to perform, therefore it must be done by an expert," Lopez explains.

A professional will be able to give you their opinion on what works for you, taking into consideration your “skin color, your level of commitment, and your personality, as this style needs a lot of care," according to Lopez.

You heard the pro! Book an appointment with your stylist ASAP to make your rainbow hair dreams a reality.


Rainbow Unicorn 

If you’re interested in joining the fun side of life, why not go all out with this vibrant look?

“I love the rainbow style, especially when it is in pastel shades," Lopez says.

This look is as bold and bright as they come, featuring multi-hair color highlights of blues, pinks, and yellows that create a pastelage spectacle! This will be easier to achieve if your natural hair is light in color (looking at you, blondes)—but for the dark-haired babes, we haven’t forgotten about you either. It’ll just require more time in the salon chair and some bleaching to get you the perfect version of a color kaleidoscope.



No More Blues, Baby

We’re all for this beautiful blue style that uses alternating shades of cyan to keep it looking as natural as blue hair possibly could. Conjuring up images of the ocean, this seaside-inspired shade is sure to create a stir. We love the combination of brown and light blonde shades, all coming together in harmony for one out-of-the-blue style.



Pretty In Pink 

You’ll be tickled pink with this perfectly pretty multicolored short hair style! Resembling a too-good-to-eat ice cream cone, this look is muted enough to work for all occasions. Make everyone green with envy by adding some transitional shades of green, blue, and yellow at the bottom to create depth and texture—and the most unique color combination out there.

What’s the best way to care for your multi hair color?

“To keep your rainbow adequately maintained, it’s important to use Redken at all stages—from pre-coloring, throughout the treatment and at home," Lopez says.

This will help to ensure that your hair is in the best condition possible. We recommend the Redken Color Extend Care Range to keep your color in check and your tresses in the best condition possible, for longevity that lasts.
