30 Best Multicolored Hair Ideas (Trending Styles To Try)

What Are The Best Multicolored Hair Ideas?

Fashion trends will always chop and change, but quirky hairstyles are forever. In a world that is now far more accepting of out there hairstyles, a popular trend now is to create more wild multi-colored hairstyles, designed to impress.

The best thing about multicolored hair is that you have so many different colors to choose from. Better still, you don’t have to commit to one color. You can take blonde hair to a new level with bright colors, and enhance the color of dark hair with vibrant colors.

You can choose to add one, two, three, or even more colors to your hair to create a style that looks great and stands out.

In this article, we’ve listed plenty of amazing rainbow hairstyles you can take inspiration from for your next style.

Let’s dive straight in!

1. Cool-Toned Metallic

If you’re looking to stay on trend, go with cool-toned hues. This is a great way to introduce multiple colors to your hair without being too out there. The deep blue, purple, and silver colors create a unique look that will blow your mind.

2. Rainbow Curls

If there’s one hairstyle that suits dimensional colors best it’s curls. So much so, curled hair and rainbow hair ideas go together perfectly. The rainbow hair trend is very much in right now so consider turning your curled hair into a vibrant collection of dazzling colors.

This new look will help your personality shine through.

3. Half And Half

A half-and-half split look is a perfect way to bring two colors to your hair. You can take this hairstyle in different directions. You could go with two subtle colors, one wild, and one natural, or a completely natural look.

We like this hairstyle when it has some pink hues.

4. Pink And Dark Colors

If you have dark hair, a great idea could be to mix it with a splash of pink color. The combination of pink and darker colors creates an enchanting look that gives your hair a fresh, rejuvenated look.

5. Fire And Ice

If you want to bring your long hair to life with a fiery style, you could go with a fire-and-ice hairstyle. This fire and ice hairstyle combines silver hair with fiery orange colors. The end result is a vibrant combination of contrasting colors.

6. Pastel Silver And Peach

This pastel silver and peach look is similar to the fire and ice idea. However, it offers a more toned-down hair color that isn’t as in your face. This style is perfect for short hair and curly hair.

The fire and ice hairstyle better suits long, dark hair.

7. Green With Envy

If you love the color green and have long dark hair, you could dye your hair green. You can use different shades of green to create a unique style. Combining your natural color with green creates a wonderful almost neon style.

8. Citrus

Those of you with short hair should consider adding bright colors to your style. Warm citrus hairstyles look great, especially in the summer. The best way to use this style is to go with exciting rainbow colors.

The combination of yellow, green, and red is to die for.

9. Galactic

Opt for a multi-colored galaxy hairstyle with shades of blue, green, and purple if you want a celestial-style look that’s out of this world. Using galaxy dyes to create this look is a surefire way to take things to a whole new level.

10. Fire Ombre

The next Multicolor hair idea on this list is a fire ombre style. Healthy hair looks stunning with bright colors and warm tones, so why don’t you give it a try? Your stylist will be able to create a warm ombre using orange, red, and yellow.

14. Dark Hair With Auburn Highlights

A beautiful blend of dark hair and auburn highlights can be all it takes to create a stunning look. Sticking with more natural colors, this ombre style is simple, yet effective. It looks sharp, natural, and clean.

The best thing about this style though is that it can be tailored to your style. You can go with any shades you like.

25. Purple And Pink Balayage

Inspired by the colors of the sunset, a purple and pink balayage is a great way to get creative with a new vibrant look. This hairstyle does require great care but with regular shampooing and conditioning, you should be able to maintain the color easily.

We recommend deeper purples for dark hair and lighter pinks for blonde hair.

26. Pink Lemonade

Those of you looking for a more extreme, stand-out-from-the-crowd style might like to go with this unique pink lemonade style. This style is fun, unique, vibrant, and exciting.

To keep this style looking vibrant, you will have to wash it in cold water regularly.

Red, yellow, and blonde highlights look perfect. Wash your hair regularly to keep the color looking vibrant.

Yellow and orange hair with dark black bangs is a great look for edgy women. The colors complement each other wonderfully and the style suits those with shorter hair.

This is another style you’ll have to look after by frequently washing your hair with shampoo.

29. Fluffy Peach Hair

Peach is a gorgeous color that offers plenty of color and brightness without things getting too extreme. A big fluffy peach hairstyle will help you elevate this simple look even further.

You will need level 9 or 10 blonde hair if you’re going to achieve this bright look.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Two Hair Colors Look Good Together?

There are plenty of hair colors that look together, including black and honey brown, vibrant red and brown, blonde and pastel pink. If you want something more vibrant, blue and green work well together, as well as pinks, reds, and oranges.

Does Rainbow Hair Fade Nicely?

The answer to this depends on what colors you choose. Some colors will fade nicer than others, such as orange to peach and red to pink. Other colors, like blue, will fade to denim, which some people don’t like. Purple often fades to a washed-out red color that people aren’t fans of.

As long as the colors you choose compliment each other well, your rainbow hair should fade nicely.
