Rainbow Coloring and Hairstyle Tutorials and Ideas

Updated on November 8, 2014


Rainbows are one of the more beautiful spectacles of nature, never seeming to exhaust the gorgeous colors we never grow tired of gazing at and being delighted by the curved arch of hues.

That has inspired many of us to try out different looks with our hair in celebration of that magnificent display of nature.

Rainbows have a fascinating mythology surrounding them, based upon the lack of knowledge in the past of what it exactly was and what caused them to appear.

Most of us know about the Irish leprechaun myth with a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. The reason you can never find that pot of gold is because of the nature of the rainbow, which is more of an effect than a location That's why when people two people look at it from different places they will define the location of the rainbow as in two different places. No matter how long you walk towards where you think a rainbow is, it'll seem to move further away.

If you've ever read about Norse mythology, you'll know about the Bifröst Bridge, which is a rainbow connecting Asgard and Midgard (Earth) together.

Others consider the rainbow to be the necklace of a goddess, and others a bow of a god.

All of this adds up to great material to base some cool-looking rainbow hair on.

Rainbow Hair Designs

Rainbow hair designs and colors entail a large variety of looks. While most prefer a long-haired appearance, others do use it on shorter hair with great effect.

Of course some of those with longer hair dye it with rainbow colors and then add the extensions to complete the look.

Many people also like to retain the natural colors of the rainbow, while others prefer to keep some of them and add a little off color of their own to express their own personal preferences.

Whatever way people decide to go, rainbow hair is an awesome look that provides all sorts of accessory and wardrobe possibilities to go with it.
