Confetti Hair And Roots Is The Bold New Rainbow Hair Color Trend

Move over, — there's a new rainbow style in town, and it () has nothing to do with mythical creatures.

Confetti hair is the latest hypnotic hair trend to hit the internet, and it's a pastel party on your head. It involves alternating rainbow-colored flecks of dye to create a mesmerizing optical illusion you won't be able to look away from. The color is more faded than other rainbow styles, so is perfect for anyone who is looking to brighten up their look but doesn't want to commit to an in-your-face version of the ROYGBIV spectrum. It's the sort of style that will have people stopping you on the street to ask, "How did you do that?!"

As reports, the style was created by Australian salon Blondes of Melbourne — the same salon that brought you . Salon owner Karen Lewis said she called the look "confetti hair" because "it's soft, pretty, happy, and it imparts little spots of pure joy on the hair like confetti!" Sounds party perfect.

For anyone interested in getting the look at home, Lewis shared exactly what sort of magic goes into creating the trend. The look works best with light or bleached-blond hair, and requires painting strands with alternating shades of color that allow small strips of your natural hair to peek through. "You can work with any color palette," Lewis told , "but go for candy-colored pastels for a more subtle effect or bright fashion colors for a bolder look."

Let the dye sit for 20 minutes, then wash it out with cold water. Keep in mind that color fades with every wash, so if you want a more subtle look, continue to wash until you've reached your desired level of rainbow realness.

Don't want to cover your whole head in this confetti party? You could also try confetti roots. Amber Glasgow, a hairstylist based in Indiana, made the scaled-down version of the trend happen. She focused on only brushing pastel dyes onto her client's pre-lightened platinum roots. "I alternated colors at her base using one inch sections," she tells Allure. Then, Glasgow left the rest of the hair blonde. You can see the final result below.

Talk about bringing your hair to an entirely new, trippy dimension.
