What was only a few years considered taboo is now a mainstream trend. Mermaid hair, rainbow, hair, or vivid hair. Whatever you call it, it's huge right now and stylists from every corner of the world have perfected these bright hues in amazing ways. I've been scouring the internet for some of the most impressive examples of this mermaid hair trend.
I tried coloring my hair pink and teal once. Click through to see some amazing hair color examples from some of the best stylists in the industry.
You never know, one just might inspire your next hair color appointment.
Rose Colored Revers Ombre Mermaid Hair from @kristiniannerella
This rose colored reverse ombre is absolute perfection on my friend Aspen. I knew I had to feature the color as soon as I saw this. Absolutely amazing, on trend, and everything that is mermaid hair. Thank you for sharing, Aspen.

Mysterious Teal and Deep Purple Ombre Mermaid Hair from @thejewelsberwin
This amazing color of a deep purple to teal ombre was created by Jewels Erwin of Salon Sator in Maple Grove, Minnesota. I love the way these colors melt together seamlessly and the shine is unbelievable.

"Clouding" Airbrush Effect Mermaid Hair from @vividartisticchairdesign
Visit Rebecca Taylor, a.k.a. @vividartistichairdesign on Instagram and you'll see why I had a hard time choosing a look to feature. I went with this amazing "clouding" color technique, developed by the one and only, Guy Tang. Rebecca did a collaboration with him for this look and it really couldn't be more perfect. Stunning color.

Pastel Rainbow Color with a Twist from @xostylistxo
I love seeing stylists think outside the box and this look from Ash Fortis, a.k.a. @xostylistxo on Instagram, is not even in the same area code as the box. I absolutely love that strip of horizontal stripes that compliment this amazing mermaid hair color.

Sour Skittles Neon Colored Mermaid Hair from @hairgod_zito
Could this "Sour Skittles" inspired color from Rickey Zito, a.k.a. @hairgod_zito on Instagram, be any more amazing? I love how he showed some pictures of the process of this creation as well. You can find Rickey on YouTube or at Head Rush Salon on Facebook.
@aikaslovecloset, or AikA, is a fashion blogger with a hair color that probably gets her more attention than her latest outfit; although those are pretty awesome, too. This deep purple roots that fade into a white into a pink into a magenta is truly a piece of artwork walking around on AikA's beautiful head. Thanks to @heatherchapmanhair for the heads up so we can gush over her hair everyday.
Guy Tang is kind of the king of ombre and mermaid hair color. Browse his @guy_tang Instagram for a minute and you'll see why. Again, it was pretty hard choosing a look from his page to feature here because so many are outstanding. I thought this one took the cake as far as true rainbow hair was concerned. Go ahead and drool over this look. I did. And, check Guy out on YouTube and Periscope as well: @guy_tang
