So you want to look like a magical unicorn? This hair color trend is ideal for you. Opal hair color is like a rainbow of shimmering pastels on top of blonde or silver hair.
Named after the Opal stone, like the picture below, because of it’s similar color and variegated color patterns. But like the opal having so many different variations you can make the color your own by adding more of a specific color or as light or saturated color as you want to.
Pink, purple, green, blue, and yellow are the most common colors used. But experiment with your own style. Maybe some orange, peach, lavender, or deeper red would look amazing. The main trick to getting the opal style color is to have all the colors spread around your hair evenly in small strands, clumps, and spots but without them getting muddied together while the pigment is still wet.
This is probably a good chance for you to break out the temporary hair colors like hair chalk and test the colors you like best. And here’s a start on 20+ opal hair color pics for you to get inspired about different color patterns.
