It’s hard to imagine anyone not loving rainbow hair (even if it’s not our own style, we can at least appreciate how lovely it is on others), which is why it’s essential to keep on top of every development in this whimsical trend. Pastel-tinging conditioner definitely caught our attention, as did the many ways to style such dreamy hair. But when it came to getting the pastel look, dark-haired ladies were S.O.L., unless they were willing to whip out the hardcore bleach or nab a rainbow-colored wig. Now that’s all changed with the introduction of jewel-toned hair made specifically to add amazing color to brunette hair.

Brought to us by the color-mastering stylists at Pravana, the jewel-tones add incredible purples, blues and greens – or rather, Amethyst, Blue Topaz and Emerald – to dark hair, creating lusciously multi-colored locks. Not solely for dark hair, as it works for lighter blondes as well, the company offers at-home kits for you to get the look yourself.

With an instructional video to teach you (or your obliging stylist) how to get the colors just right, it may be a labor of love, but your jewel-toned locks will surely be worth the work. Check out the video below to see Mermicorn (mermaid + unicorn) hair come to life.
