Ah, the unicorn. That elusive creature that only exists in our imaginations and fairy tales. Almost like our favorite celebrities (if you consider the tabloids fairy tales). Recently, the brightest stars in Hollywood have been taking a page from their horned counterparts and adopting a pretty pastel hair trend in almost every color of the rainbow! The multicolored hairstyle is taking over! If you need inspiration for your next dye job, this is where you’ll find it.
Gwen Stefani, Drew Barrymore, and Christina Aguilera have been dying their hair crazy colors since all the way back in the ’90s, when people actually watched the VMAs and MTV actually played music videos. With the grunge and punk movements came hair dye products like Manic Panic and Punky Color, and with them every color of hair-dye you could imagine: Cotton Candy Pink, Ultra Violet, Tangerine, and Daffodil.
In the past few years, the invention of hair chalk has made it even easier for our fave celebs to have the colorful cotton-candy hair-color we lust over. The best thing is, hair chalk has made it so we can “dye” our hair without permanently upsetting our bosses and getting fired. It just washes out! You can have blue hair on Friday night, pink hair on Saturday night, and be back to your normal work-safe hair color by Monday morning.
Our list is filled with the most colorful celebrity hair a girl (or boy) could dream of. Pinks! Blues! Purples! Take a look the celebrity you think rocks the colorful, unicorn hair the best!
