I watched this tutorial https://youtu.be/eshOzshjt90 and at 2:18 he somehow magically managed to get a different color on his second particle via the color ramp. But the color ramp doesn't do anything at all? I'm really confused. How do I change or invert the color of my second particle?

If your particle system is instancing an object then you can customise the particles to sample random colours by using this node setup on your instancing object:

Here, all I've done is use the random output of an object info node with a colour ramp :)

  • $\begingroup$ mhh, thats not really what I'm searching for :/ my plane has two hair particles, the second one is a duplicate of the first one. The first particle should have color a and the second one color b... i tried with creating a texture and enable color ramp, but color ramp doesn't do anything... $\endgroup$ May 16, 2020 at 19:39
