First there was mermaid hair and then there was the Unicorn Frapp. If there's one thing that's clear about trends in 2017, it's that this year is all about bright colors. So if you've been looking to change up your 'do for summer, you just might want to try the newest hair trend, which just might remind you of your favorite birthday dessert...
2. Who Wouldn't Want Their Hair To Look Like This?
Funfetti was always the most exciting birthday cake to have when you were a kid (or as an adult – don't judge my birthday cake preferences!), and now you can bring that same sense of fun and whimsy to your hair. All you have to do is get a confetti dye job.
At first glance, you might think the picture quality is messed up on your computer. However, once you look at bit closer, you'll see that the color on your screen is just fine – and the color on this model's hair pops like confetti. With a hairstyle like this, you're always ready for a party.
To achieve this bright, quirky hairstyle, you need to have bleach blonde (or very light blonde) hair. So if you've got darker hair, you have a long, long way to go before you can rock this colorful 'do.
One of the best perks about a cool hairdo is that you never have to put much effort into the rest of your ensemble. Who needs flashy makeup or a perfectly on-trend outfit when your hair is already the statement piece of your look? Plus, your hair will be a great conversation starter, so you won't have to worry about the initial awkward small talk at parties or on first dates.
7. This Trend Is For Girls (And Guys!) Who Are The Life Of The Party
If you pass someone on the street with confetti hair, you'll probably have one immediate thought: that is one fun, carefree girl (or guy). And who doesn't want to be known for their bold choices and free spirit?
But if you're not the life of the party (yet), you know what they say – fake it 'til you make it. And what better way to fake it than with confetti hair?
8. Watch How It's Done
Curious about how the stylists at Blondies of Melbourne achieve this charming, colorful look? Then take a look at this video, which will give you a brief glimpse of the dyeing process. Blondies of Melbourne uses a special technique and Pravana dyes to achieve this unexpected hair style, so check it out and see if you'd be brave enough to give it a go.
9. One More Look
As you can see, this isn't your average coloring technique. The stylist "stamps" bright colorful dots onto blonde hair, which ultimately results in a hairstyle that looks like a cross between an optical illusion and a birthday cake.
10. No, This Isn't Arts And Crafts. This Is FASHION
If you're like me (aka someone who hasn't changed their hairstyle since they were 11 years old), you might take a look at this photo and think it looks terrifyingly similar to one of your 5th grade art projects. But remember, these stylists know what they're doing, and we should all be jealous of them. Because they found a way to turn their love for arts and crafts into a career.
11. Confetti Hair Isn't All That Blondies Is Cookin' Up
Blondies of Melbourne clearly knows how to work with color, which is why their Instagram page is covered in colorful neon and pastel hairdos. Take this style, for instance, which Blondies has dubbed, "a melting pastel rainbow hair swipe."
So if you opt for this hairstyle, and someone tells you that they love your rainbow hair, be sure to correct them by saying, "It's actually a melting pastel rainbow hair swipe."
Here's another Blondies creation that they've named, "Neon Pinwheel Hair." This style is so rad, and it honestly looks like it's straight out of a superhero movie. It would be tough to choose your outfit with a hair style this bold, though, because I get the sense that it would clash with a lot of colors.
In this case, getting rainbow roots is kind of like getting a tattoo on your rib cage. It's there, you know it's there and other people will know it's there if you show them. But you can keep it your own little secret if you want to.
Confetti hair reminds me a bit of a former hair trend, "Sand Art Hair". This hair style featured a kaleidoscope of color, and it was created by using a "unicorn balayage technique". Basically, if you want to look like a My Little Pony, this is the 'do for you.
17. For All You Aspiring Mermaids And Unicorns Out There
This hair style just makes you look like a beautiful fairy princess, so it's no surprise it was so popular a year ago. Now, however, Sand Art Hair is about to get edged out, because confetti hair is here and people are ready to join the party.
After looking at all of these beautiful, trendy hairstyles, suddenly this is how I'm thinking I look. Maybe it's time I made a big change in the hairdo department... Or maybe I'll continue admiring other people's cool hairstyles from afar. The upkeep of confetti hair, rainbow roots and sand art hair sounds like way too much work for me.
