I WANT A UNICORN MANE : HOW DO I GO ABOUT IT ?
That’s it, it’s decided, you want the same hair as Tamara in Princess Starla and the magic jewels ! That’s great, but before you cover your scalp with Power Ranger poop, you should know that the way to the Knight of Avalon’s mane is long and not without danger (burning, breaking, cracking…) for your hair.
After weighing the pros and cons, you can take out your little chemist’s equipment and put on your ex’s favorite t-shirt: it will send the color 🤣🤣🤣!
WHICH HAIR COLOR TO CHOOSE BASED ON MY SKIN TONE
1) LIGHT COMPLEXION: TONE-ON-TONE COLOURING
When the skin is very pale, it is difficult to choose an appropriate colour. Too light, it can fade, and conversely, a colour that is too dark tends to be unnatural and make the face look heavy. The best option? Stay close to your base and add a touch of light.
2) FAIR SKIN ? CHOOSE A BLONDE COLOURING
If you are fair-skinned, your best ally will be the blonde! Soft, luminous and young, this colour will flatter your complexion. In addition, blonde hair has a wide range of shades: Platinum blonde, California blonde, ash blonde, etc.
3) GOLDEN TO MATTE DYES: EMPHASIZE WARM DYES
For tanned complexions, give way to deep tones such as chestnut, marron glacé or chocolate. Coppery colours such as mahogany or Venetian blond also work if you have light eyes: blue, green or hazelnut. On the other hand, avoid blond hair that is too light! It creates too much contrast and can dull your complexion.
FASHIONABLE PASTEL HAIR COLORS ARE NOT EXCLUSIVE TO UNICORNS
The Unicorns generation comes from the term “Unicorn Hair Tutorial” and is used whenever we talk about original hair dyes in pastel shades. Without necessarily referring to a particular style. For older girls, being inspired by the world of unicorns is just as interesting. Hair colour harmonies become, at the discretion of the artist, a symphony of bolder contrasts with a more classical side.
- FIRST STEP: DISCOLORATION
The first step towards a mane worthy of My Little Pony is fading. Yes, before you can apply the colour of your choice, you must bleach your hair as much as possible so that the red-orange and purple are as intense as possible. This step is mandatory, even if your hair is naturally brown, black, dark blond, grey, …
You will strand your hair with shades of purple, pink, peach and blue, but always very light. A discreet result for those who want to get into crazy hair without overdoing it. Super positive point: the colours fade gradually to leave only the blonde. Practical to avoid constant touch-ups. Want to try it on? Go ahead, take some selfies: you’re sure to make the buzz. You’ve opted for navy blue, otherwise you’ll only get highlights!
Bleaching is always done on “dirty” hair to avoid burning the scalp. You can do it yourself with a specific product (there are often some in the “Colouring” section of supermarkets) or go to a hair salon if you don’t feel up to it.
If you have very dark hair, I advise you to trust a professional hairdresser to avoid ending up with unattractive orange highlights.
- SECOND STAGE: COLOURING
Before attacking colour, start by washing your hair with a mild, silicone-free shampoo. Skip the “Conditioner” step and blow dry your mane with a blow dryer.
Once your hair is perfectly dry, you can apply Vaseline (or a very greasy cream) to the contours of your hair to prevent the colour from coming into contact with your skin (colour stains are rare but they can happen and are very embarrassing to remove).
Then apply your colour, starting at the root of your hair, using a wide brush and spread it along your lengths with a comb. Leave on for at least thirty minutes, as indicated in the instructions for your colouring product.
Once the exposure time has elapsed, rinse your hair with cold water (very important for fixing the colour) and apply a nourishing mask to your lengths. You can then rinse your hair and style as usual.

DIFFERENT WAYS TO KEEP YOUR RAINBOW HAIR HYDRATED
That’s it, your Unicorn Rainbow Hair is finally the color of your dreams! You can open a fashion blog and become an Instagram star ✨. But in order to keep your degree of illness always higher than a reality TV star’s IQ, and to avoid having to cut your hair very, very short, you’re going to have to take great care of your mane, which, it has to be said, has been well blurred.
- To protect the shine and uniformity of your colour, wash your hair as little as possible, with a mild, sulfate-free shampoo, and always in cold water. Never skimp on nourishing conditioner: your lengths are killing the slab!
- Always protect your hair when you dive into the pool or the sea and when exposed to the sun.
- For a good hydration bath, you can leave coconut oil or argan oil on your hair for several hours as a pre-shampoo mask.

WHAT ARE THE ACTIONS TO AVOID BREAKING HAIR ?
The colouring of your hair is not insignificant. So there are some things to banish in order to avoid hair suicide ! First of all, do not straighten your hair, and even less so on wet hair. This action will cause your hair to lose its shine. However, if you are hooked on a straightening iron, it is essential to leave about ten days between each straightening session.
In addition, it is advisable to promote steam straightening. Another tip: keep your hair warm ! A hair dryer used at too high a temperature can be very harmful to your hair, breaking it and making it very fragile. It is recommended that you use the “cold” option of your appliance for a less traumatic drying. Otherwise, natural drying is the best way to improve the health of your hair.
