Here's How To Get One Step Closer To Being An Actual Unicorn

There’s a new unicorn-themed product everywhere you turn these days, but no matter how many brands get in on the holographic beauty game, you can’t ignore the fact that Lime Crime did it first. The company, known for its bold, poppy pigments and colorful, eccentric vibe, introduced its Unicorn Lipsticks, complete with a sparkling unicorn on the packaging, all the way back in 2009. (That was way back when Unicorn Tears was still just a twinkle in Too Faced founder Jerrod Blandino’s eye.)
Eight years after debuting the first-ever “makeup for unicorns,” as is the brand’s catchphrase, Lime Crime has released a number of exceptional products (and seen its fair share of controversy, too). The matte liquid Velvetines lipsticks were among the first to make liquid lipstick a thing, and its Superfoils eyeshadows are almost always sold out. But now the cult-favorite brand is taking a big leap into the world of hair color — and, true to the Lime Crime ethos, it’s called Unicorn Hair.

In 13 eye-catching shades, the semi-permanent dyes are so pretty, you won’t even know where to begin. You could start with Sext, the curiously named nude mauve tint, or perhaps Dirty Mermaid, a muted seafoam green — or you could start by checking out the color inspiration we snagged straight from Lime Crime’s Instagram, ahead.

Forget hidden rainbow streaks — the internet has moved on to something a little more...magical. Straight from beauty brand Pravana, this holographic hue is like an optical illusion for your hair (in the best way). Similar to the bottom of a CD, the iridescent lavender tones create the same effect as geode hair, but with a blond base and way more head-turning power.

The oil slick trend meets ombré for an effect that's out of this world.

If rainbow hair seems a bit too typical, a rainbow on your hair could be a great option.

If the peach emoji could be turned into a hairstyle, this would be it.

The only thing cooler than retro, teased-out curly hair? That same look in shades of strawberries and cream.

No need to decide between bright rainbow colors and faded pastels when you can have the best of both worlds.

"Lavender honey" is the perfect way to describe this purplish pastel fade.
