The rainbow hair trend isn't showing any signs of slowing as the warmer summer months arrive. Perfect for blondes, pastel hair colors are taking over Instagram as one of the most popular trends of the year. But what about brunette clients who want to embrace fun, vibrant hair color with minimal damage to their strands? Or those clients who want something beautiful yet subtle and soft? Enter this look by KL Christofferson (known as @mermicornhair and creator of the fluid hair painting technique), in collaboration with PRAVANA.

The look was created using PRAVANA’s 3 new VIVIDS Jewels hair colors: Amethyst, Blue Topaz, and Emerald. These universally-flattering shades work on all skin tones and hair colors, and are ideal for creating the coveted oil slick look where colors resemble the iridescent, intertwined rainbows found in spilled oil on the ground. The soft transition from natural to VIVIDS shades was created with Christofferson’s strategic fluid hair painting technique, where the hair is fanned out on a table during the service. See the technique and hair color how-to in action in the video below!
