How To – Rainbow Hair and Makeup

Unicorns and mermaids have long been a huge trend in the costume and Cosplay world. The mythical creatures provide the perfect excuse for oodles of glitter and some pretty exaggerated makeup (who doesn’t love a horn and a tail?) This summer, a host of beauty enthusiasts and fashionistas have taken inspiration from the fantasy theme resulting in the most magical of hair trends – rainbow hair.

Matching Rainbow Hair and Makeup

Matching your hair and makeup used to be a bit of a beauty no-no but that rule has been dragged and dropped firmly in the trash. Those in-the-know are taking inspiration from their coloured hair and using it as a palette for the face.

Rainbow hair allows for some serious colour mixing when it comes to your makeup. Whether you take one or two shades of the hair lengths and match with eyeshadows or go full out rainbow abstract painting, the possibilities are endless. For selfie lovers, rainbow hair and makeup looks make for some fabulously photogenic results.

We’ve found just the girl who so happens to be a bit of a genius in creating multi-coloured makeup to coordinate with your rainbow hair. Want to be inspired with some easy to follow guides? Simply click the videos below….

Suezochan chose the Unicorn Rainbow Wig for her makeup looks below. Click the image above for more information on the multi-coloured wig – in stock and available to purchase now.

Suezochan used the LaRoc Summer Shades Professional 120 Colour Eyeshadow Palette to create her looks here. This cruelty-free brand is also purse friendly and offers multiple eye and face palettes including their new Beauty and The Beast range.

Wig Trend: Pastel Hair

The Pastel Hair Fashion

Pinterest and Instagram are in love right now with celebrities, hairstylists and fashion bloggers embracing the pastel coloured hair trend. Mermaid and Unicorn inspired hair is all the rage and it seems to be driving many a hairdresser to their wits end!

Pastel Purple Hair

Achieving that dreamy baby blue shade or maintaining a lush lilac hue is impossible extraordinarily difficult and several well known stylists have taken to social media to explain this in seemingly irritated posts.

Multiple rounds of colour stripping is required, particularly if your hair is naturally dark as it is important that a bleached base is achieved before the new colour is applied.

The quick, easy and comparatively cheap way to go all over pastel? Choose from an array of pastel wigs.

Shop and browse our pastel wigs collection by clicking the image.

Pastel Wigs

The ever changing hair colour of a certain Miss Kylie Jenner can be attributed to her extensive wig collection and we offer a range of the youngest of the Kardashian clan’s inspired looks.

Switch between pastel colours such as Summer silver and gorgeous green depending on the occasion or outfit and experiment with matching makeup for the perfect selfie.

Our pastel fashion wigs include multiple colours and designs including mid length cuts, extra long lengths, bangs and fringeless styles. Each of our pastel wigs is fully heat resistant, allowing you to curl and straighten your style again and again.

TIP: It is common for unused light coloured wigs to emit a slight shine due to the nature of the hair fibres. Click here for tips and tutorials on how to make your wig less shiny.

Free shipping is available on all UK orders with delivery dates displayed at checkout. Need your wig in a hurry? We offer expedited delivery to every country in the World. Receive your order within 1-3 days no matter where you live.
