The Best Pigments to Show Your Pride
Show off your true colors with our rainbow of Fantasy pigments.
This Pride Month, we’re celebrating with our rainbow of Fantasy pigments to give your look a barrier-breaking finish. In general, the colors of the rainbow flag represent diversity and acceptance — for others and yourself. So whether you want to rock one color or wear the entire flag all at once, we’re showing you how to embrace your own magic with our Pigmented Masques.
*Keep in mind that our semi-permanent pigments appear best on pre-lightened, blonde, or highlighted hair and are not intended to cover grays.
Your Pride Pigments
Red has a range of symbolic meanings in many different cultures, including life, health, courage, and love — but the common thread that unites them all is that these traits require passion. If you’re proud to be a passionate individual, then red is officially your Pride Month hair color.

Representing energy, excitement, and exuberance, orange is the life of the party. From soft peachy hues to neon mandarin shades, this unique hair color allows you to show your enthusiasm for the skin you’re in. So bring a splash of that infectious energy with you everywhere you go with our Saharan Copper or Roman Copper Pigmented Masques.

Often associated with sunshine and happiness, yellow brings on pure joy. Whether you’re wearing a banana-colored dress or you’ve got a sunny yellow streak in your strands, there’s something about this color that brightens any mood. To keep the good vibes going, make Cairo Yellow your Pride Month hair color.

When people think of the rainbow, indigo is often left out of the party — but we love all the colors equally at AURA. Powerful and dignified, this purple-meets-blue shade conveys integrity and deep sincerity. So if you’re trying to get deep this Pride Month, a pop of indigo might be exactly what you need to get your mind right.

The final shade in the rainbow, violet, is often associated with wisdom, bravery, and wealth. In fact, many royals solely wore this color as a symbol of their status — and we think you deserve the royal treatment. To bring on an abundant energy, try revamping your look with a purple finish.

Rock the Rainbow
If you’ve ordered a Pigmented Masque before, you can order each and every shade of the rainbow to create a showstopping Pride Month look, as you see on our Social Media Manager, Leslie. To achieve her look:
- Start by reading your personalized instructions and setting up your station. Put on your gloves and grab a dark towel to prevent staining.
- Then, secure the top half of your hair to get it out of the way. Separate the bottom half of your hair into seven individual sections — one for each color of the rainbow.
- Then apply one Pigmented Masque shade to each section of your hair, following the order of the rainbow flag. You can apply them to clean, dry hair for the richest results. Make sure each section is fully saturated before setting your timer for 10-15 minutes.
- Once the product has set for 10-15 minutes, rinse hair thoroughly. Shampoo lightly at the roots if needed but do not condition.
- Style your hair as usual and rock your new look with pride.
