#1: Light Prismatic Long Hair

Go for a light prismatic color for a striking look on long hair. This color blends soft pastel tones on a bleach blonde base. The color technique forms a prismatic effect, as it makes the light reflect off the hair. Try to wash your hair less often to avoid color loss. It would be best if you also used cold water, as hot water can strip out the color.

#2: Pink Holographic Rainbow Hair

The product in question is a pink holographic rainbow hair color. It’s a trendy color that reflects the shades of a prismatic rainbow. You can achieve this vibrant color over a uniformly blonde base to ensure an even color spread. Typically, this process takes hours and may span several salon sessions to ensure the hair is properly prepared for the vivid colors.

#3: Pastel Babylights on Short-Blonde Hair

Pastel babylights on short blonde hair are the perfect way to spice up platinum blonde. Platinum blonde is the best canvas for pastel colors. When the hair is almost void of color, with no yellow tones, pastel colors are at their brightest. Applying light blue to hair with yellow tones will give a greenish hue because yellow and blue combine to make green. Similarly, if you add baby pink to yellow-toned hair, the result will likely be a peach or orange shade. Therefore, the lighter the hair color, the better the results. Moreover, applying the bubble technique adds depth to the hair color, offering a holographic vibe.

#4: Dark Holographic Mermaid Hair

If you desire a vibrant color, consider dark holographic mermaid hair. Mermaid hair offers multiple colors at once, eliminating the need to select only one. The peekaboo style of mermaid’s hair offers a slightly safer choice as it can be discreetly hidden. If the situation requires, the peekaboo style allows you to hide your mermaid hair. But why?! Always wash your vivids in cold water with a sulfate-free shampoo so they don’t run together or fade.

#5: Dimensional Rainbow on Gray Hair

A dimensional rainbow is a technique used for gray hair coloring. Like gray clouds bring rain and rainbows, gray hair can display a spectrum of colors. The dimensional rainbow technique is an artistic expression of color, creating a holograph-like prism of hair color. Whether starting with a blonde wig or natural blonde hair, it must be light enough to effectively display the vivid tones. This will ensure colors come out the way you see them in the tube.

Achieving the Perfect Holo Hair

The first thing, says Duckworth, is to lighten your hair to a platinum blonde. This may take a while, it all depends on your natural hair color and texture. The key is patience. Once the hair is light, you then apply the vivid colors.

What about the major skin tones? Duckworth suggests if you lean towards a peach or olive tone, warmer colors will suit you better. Cooler tones, on the other hand, look nicer on pink or blue complexions.

Preserving the Rainbow

Maintaining this hairstyle isn’t a task to take lightly. A color-safe shampoo comes to the rescue. Ideally, it should be sulfate and sodium-free, Duckworth advises. Products like Olaplex or K18 can keep your hair healthy. Hold back from chlorine, salt water, and hot water. Your shiny hair will thank you for it.

Prepping with Your Stylist

Discussion is key. The kind of lifestyle you lead, and the frequency of your salon visits, are all important factors. “If you’re low maintenance and expect salon visits 3-4 times a year, highlights are your best bet,” Duckworth points out. If frequent salon visits don’t faze you, a solid bleach and tone might be what you need.

Bear in mind your current hair condition may affect the final color. If you have a dark color or overprocessed hair, your stylist may suggest opting for a vivid tone over a pastel one. With the right advice and care, holographic hair can be within your reach. So go ahead, take the leap, and let your hair reveal its true colors! Or, check out our hair color ideas.
