Two years ago, what we thought was a passing whimsical fad, is now a full-blown color trend: Unicorn Rainbow Hair. We’re way beyond the My Little Pony obsession and deeply rooted in the power of multicolor hair expression.
In What’s Really Behind Unicorn Fever, a 2017 Refinery 29 article, Jess Weiner, a brand strategist and CEO of Talk To Jess, explains:

And they do have a certain girly undertone because many of us associate them with our childhood, so they’re unapologetically feminine. Why wouldn’t we own something that’s just for us and inspires us to believe in our otherworldly capabilities? We’re being faced with some dire messaging around being female. Unicorns are our chance to escape and have some fun.

ICYMI: Nicki has been going through a complete makeover. After firing her entire glam squad, the 35-year-old rapper showed off her fleshly laid wig done by her new stylist, Arrogant Tae, and fans instantly fell in love with her pastel multi-colored half-up-half-down ‘do.
