We know what you’re thinking: Haven’t we reached max capacity on crazy hair color trends yet!? Sorry, but it seems that’s not quite the case. Last week we brought you the stunning, natural-inspired shade cinnamon swirl hair, but this week we’re go in a very different direction. Introducing: watercolor hair.

Just like the fundamental art supply, this new hair color technique is characterized by taking those vivid rainbow colors and diluting them down to something a little bit softer. Think opal hair with a few more shades incorporated throughout. If you’re into the idea of rainbow roots but don’t necessarily want to be walking around with something like florescent orange locks, this could be the perfect happy medium.

From what we’ve seen on Instagram and from the experts over at Pravana, the looks tends to integrate color into your rainbow locks rather than take it over completely. Whether the color is most vivid at the roots or your ends is up to you.

Considering how fast rainbow-hued dyes tend to fade, we will admit we’re a little bit wary of how long this would actually last. But hey, all great loves are fleeting, right?
