Meet Prism hair: The kaleidoscope of colours your hair was waiting for

Never have I ever coloured my hair a funky shade—if you haven’t already, then go book an appointment right away. Because YOLO *wink wink*.

Hair colours have a strong ability to completely transform your look. Whether you’re opting for highlights or global, your hair colour will speak for you. While an intricate hairstyle or an edgy haircut plays a huge role in upgrading your hair game, nothing beats a bold hair colour. If you’re a hair colour junkie, then you’re in for a treat.

With new trends surfacing every other day, we are always on the lookout for bringing something new and quirky to the table for you to play copycat to. After introducing you to tons of different hair colours such as bronde, golden brunette, sombré, chestnut brown and pastel, to name a few, here’s another one you need to add to your list RN. It’s called prism hair!

What is prism hair? 

First things first. Prism hair is not for those who like to play it safe. If you’re someone who keeps a safe distance from quirky, OTT hair colours, then this one’s not for you. Prism hair is for those who love bold, attention-grabbing hair colour. It’s all about recreating the effect of a prism. Multiple colours in your hair define prism hair. 

Hair colour minimalists, don’t be disheartened yet. There are ways to keep prism hair subtle too. You can opt for a washed-out look or highlights across fringes and smaller sections of hair. 

If you’re looking for ideas to get prism hair, here are a few options you might want to try.

Prism hair will look best on a black base. So, if you have darker hair, then go for prism highlights that’ll look soft and subtle.

Another subtle way of wearing prism hair is to go for the rainbow colours only on the ends to add just the right amount of drama to your hair game.

If you’re a hair colour maximalist, then opt for prism on the crown area and leave the tips in their original hair colour.
