Sometimes we have to tone down our personal style — for example, depending on what you do for a living, having a hairstyle that’s super out there (like glitter roots, for example) might not be deemed inappropriate by HR. Wouldn’t it be great if you could have a sort of… secret hairstyle that you could sport after hours? Think: business in the front, party in the back — no, wait, business on the top, party underneath, actually.


Another day, another hair trend: This time, it’s called secret rainbow hair, and it allows you to get away with having a “professional,” “normal” color on the bulk of your hair while secretly sporting a vibrantly hued masterpiece underneath. Your secret rainbow hair only comes through if you style your locks in certain ways, like a thick fishtail braid or a rolled chignon, or if you casually run your fingers through your hair ;) The best thing about this hair trend is that it’s up to you to decide when you want the colorful surprise to shine through.

We love how this allows you to really have the best of both worlds when it comes to your hair. You can walk confidently into work knowing that you won’t piss off HR, but as soon as the clock strikes 6pm, still embrace your inner spunk and show off your rainbow hair to your friends at happy hour. It’s like living a double hair life.
