So, to bang, sparkle and fizz like a magnificent firework, check out our gallery above, and read on to get the lowdown on each look.

8. Pastel rainbow
If flashy colours aren’t quite your thing, fret not, as you can still emulate the look of firework hair, just in a more subtle way!
For something a little less dramatic, but nonetheless stunning, try sticking to more muted, pastel hues. It’ll give you the same rainbow effect, just in a softer finish that fades less noticeably. Credit: @thehairstylish
