Believe it or not, but there are plenty of people who are hesitant to dye their hair — the sole reason being that they can't commit to one color. So why not take a page from Hollywood's book and just wear them all at once, like Amandla Stenberg and Cardi B?
Over on Instagram, rainbow hair is trending on our favorite stylists and influencers to follow, too. And with good reason: It's a style that looks good on anyone, no matter what your texture or length is. Whether you're wigging out like Cardi and Nicki Minaj, playing with temporary colors, or taking the full plunge, one thing's for sure: All eyes will be on you... and all your outfits will match, too. Get a taste of the rainbow, ahead.

If you don't want to commit to dyeing, you can always get a fresh set of box braids. Catface has some of the most popular (and colorful) braiding hair around.

Yet another creation by the genius that is Carrillo. If you're skeptical about dyeing your natural hair, just be sure to stock up on plenty of deep conditioners and masks — you'll need a lot of moisture to replenish your curls.
