The one thing that Pride Month brings is a myriad rainbow of love, hope and energy. Fiercely individualistic as the spectrum of identity is, the rainbow hues of bracelets and tees, face paints and even hair is such a loud step out moment for you to be unquestionably you. Finding the right look to yell it loud and proud with that gorgeous hair of yours can be done damage free by bringing the rainbow to your hair extensions (and not your real hair). Creative color is striking and beautiful, but ongoing chemical services to keep up the kind of hair you may chase on Insta or TikTok can take its toll. Check out some celebrity pride month inspiration below!
JoJo Siwa’s Pride Pony
After coming out in 2021, this year JoJo Siwa took to socials with a message of love, acceptance and celebration. This beautifully uplifting message she shared on Instagram underlined the fun and bold look she rocked: a top pride ponytail in summer blonde with shadow roots, tied off with multicolor 90s hair ties. The artistic feature however was the Crayola crayon accessory mounted on her forehead with trailing colors down to her neck. Achieve her style with a clip-in ponytail!
Rainbow Jeweled “Snatched Ponytail
Another variation on the ponytail is to hit the craft store for some stick on rainbow hued jewels, like this one from celebrity stylist Antonio Estrada. Tied off with hair ties in multiple different colors, jewels work amazing in the hair if you keep the finish tight and frizz free almost like a canvas. Simply tease out the ponytail at the end for that extra bit of Diva at Pride!
Melissa McCarthy’s West Hollywood Blowout Hair
Actress Melissa McCarthy showed up at the WeHo Pride Parade as the ultimate diva and icon to the community. Most recently seen playing Ursula in Disney’s live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid”, she showed up in style in a glittering ensemble and truly voluminous head of hair. With a clean center part, the waves of her hair tumbled down to her shoulders…a true Sea Witch indeed!
Demi Lovato’s Unicorn Highlights
Back in 2014 the multi-platinum recording artist served as Grand Marshall for the LA Pride Parade, stepping out a fierce leather marshall outfit with rainbow unicorn highlights through her long dark hair. But that wasn’t all, she also took the opportunity to record her music video at the parade for her song, “Really Don’t Care”.
Saweetie’s “Down To There” Rainbow Hair
At Coachella this year, rapper Saweetie stepped out with incredibly long hair extensions all the way down PAST her waist. As if that wasn’t statement making enough, they were custom colored, painted in the shape of a rainbow colored heart with pure pink roots. Topping the look off was a chic topknot and feathery bangs.
Josephine Skriver’s Pride Parade Float Hair
Sometimes you can just go over the top in a good way. For Josephine Skriver, she worked with Carolina Gonzalez on a look that brought all things sweet to World Pride. From jelly beans and wrapped ribbons to purple and pink piecey haircolor, this look had it all. The crowning finish? A splash of sparkle on the side of her head that moved down to her shoulders.
Halsey’s Subtle Rainbow Bangs
On the opposite side of the spectrum is something a little more reserved. Halsey kept it simple with her normally dark hair brightened by vertical rainbow stripes in her bangs.
Celebrity Colorist Guy Tang’s Pastel Bob
When it comes to color, celebrity hairdresser Guy Tang has the market cornered on creating truly stunning color combinations that so beautiful and unique to each of his clients.

This asymmetrical bob haircut is not only trendy, but in bands of pastels is so sleek for summer!
Bella Thorne’s “Lived In” Rainbow Beach Hair
In summer, beach hair from leave-ins and skipping some washes gets a beautiful lived-in look, where the look is almost French, just a little grungy but in a classy way. Easily replicated with a leave-in conditioner and some heat, Bella Thorne rocks rainbow extensions that look like a day by the seaside.
