15 Amazing Rainbow Hair Looks That Will Have You Rushing to the Salon

By  | 

Remember being a little girl and having one of those cool dolls whose hair you could change with a wet brush? I had one, and I envied the hell out of those cute streaks of pink and purple. My mother was not about that multi-colored hair life though, and I was not allowed to dye my hair as a teen. And while I still’t really bother with dyeing my own, I have a fondness for seeing folks with brightly-colored tresses, especially rainbow hair.

If you’re looking for some hair-spiration, check out these amazing rainbow hair looks as seen on Instagram.
