It seems like the 'unicorn hair' trend is here to stay, and whether or not this style is your cup of tea, either way we think you'll appreciate just how gorgeous some of the below looks are!

In 2015, you don't need to be a punk rock princess to be able to sport colorful hair anymore. And the good news is that contrary to popular belief, it's very feasible for most hairstylists to achieve a variety of pastel colored looks on your hair in the salon, like light pink, silver grey or even pale lilac – however, it is important to note that your hair must be bleached first before applying the color. Also, if you'd like your pastel color to be a bit more nuanced and personalized than the classic options, you will need to find a color specialist and discuss your dream look in detail with them before you can achieve hair that even My Little Pony would be envious of.

The most classic color: pink

Cotton candy colored hair is very feminine and reminds us of Barbie. It's simple to do, as well as a great first color for you to try if you'd like to get acquainted with the pastel trend.

The most fashion-forward color: silver or 'Granny hair'

American fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson is loved by many fashion designers and dyed her hair grey back in 2010, which at the time was seen as a novel idea. Fast-forward five years later, and Granny hair, or hair that is dyed silver/grey is now a look that many stars and fashionistas are adopting. Long story short, if you want to be one of the cool kids, Granny hair is the way to go.

The most enchanting color: Opal hair

A cross between rainbow hair and pastel hair, the new trend is 'opal hair'. We particularly love this look. The purple base color coupled with silver and pink tints render the end result soft and dreamy.

The most in vogue color: Galaxy hair

The most recent trend catching on is 'galaxy hair.' This style is very similar to rainbow hair, but has more of an 'out of this world' allure, thanks to the Northern lights-inspired colors that are used to achieve the look. The final result will appear a bit dark at first, but after washing your hair two or three times the color will start to fade a bit and become much more wearable.

The most hybrid color: Sand Art Hair and Split Dyed Hair

Sand art hair is essentially rainbow hair that draws inspiration from decorative 90s sand art, and split dyed hair is hair that is dyed two different colors on either side. For example, one side may be a classic pastel color and then the other side might be a darker contrasting color like jet-black, or a different pastel shade. Combining both looks together will create an extremely unique look that takes both trends to another level.
