You may remember this was a big hit in the end of 2015 - but it's been years now and pastel hair shades show no signs of slowing down in the beauty world... in fact, they are once again gaining momentum. But this time round, it's not single shades such as pinks, purples and oranges that are receiving all the attention, nor is it rainbow hair.
Enter opal hair: the beauty trend that just screams pretty. Opal hair is a version of rainbow hair that includes dying sections of your locks in mutiple soft coloured shades.
In short, opal hair is a toned down version of the brighter rainbow hair inspired 'dos we've been seeing so frequently over recent months. Firstly, the entire hair is dyed pearl (a near-grey shade) and is then combined with light blues, pinks, greens or purples, which are layered on to create the look. It looks both great on longer manes as well as short bobs, and is making the rounds on .
If you can't quite imagine it, take a look at the cool insta-girls rocking the trend below, or alternatively, think back to your childhood and envisage the front cover of book.
