Psychedelic hair colorist Roxie Jane Hunt is the one person who actually pioneered this interesting take on the rainbow prism hair. The main idea of this hairstyle came from the wish to give up on the My Little Pony-like colored strands of hair and replace them with tiny, prism-like sections that are subtle but chic enough to be observed. The result is absolutely impressive, as it looks like sunlight is hitting the hair in just the right places. Apart from this, you won’t have to pose under your collection of crystals to try and make it look like the light is hitting your hair naturally that way.

It is actually very easy to do, but you’d better let a professional handle it. The trick is to leave most of your hair natural. Then, the hairstylist will have to choose some random small sections of the hair and dye it using rainbow-like colors. The result will be a see-through prism-like look that will create the illusion that sunlight is hitting your hair.

According to Hunt, it’s very important to choose rectangular potions of hair. Then, the hairstylist needs to color these sections using either Mani-Panic dye specially made for salon use, or stencils. It’s interesting that it only takes about 90 minutes to do, so you won’t have to worry about spending too much time at a salon. The popular Instagram filter that creates this effect will be long gone when you finally have the real thing. Hunt says that this is a bold look for minimalists that love the rainbow and its colors. Festival goer who fancy more subtle looks will also surely love it. It’s your choice if you want just a tiny dot of rainbow on your hair or bigger sections.
