We’re seeing these fluorescent hues transition from the red carpet, to the runway, and now they’re hitting the streets. Think you got what it takes to rock a bold hued ‘do, such as neon green hair?

Neon hair like neon green hair (AKA look-at-me-green) demand one thing - look at me! So it only makes sense that the bright hair trend started with celebrities, well known for loving a good dose of attention. The trend was picked up by fashion designers around the world and began to make appearances on the hottest catwalks in the fashion world. Finally, after literally being flashed in our faces for a good amount of time, we succumbed. The bright hair movement began to filter to the masses (not referring to the Yellow Vest movement in France…) and is now the streets and tube alike. Whether you’re all for flying your fierce flag with a neon hair , or you’re still contemplating if you can pull it off, this bright hair trend is in full force as of late.
The popularity of electric had us a bit confused at first, we wondered how one could pull off such eccentric bright hair shades outside of a music festival. We stand corrected… neon hair - especially neon green hair - have taken the beauty world by storm and we’re not even mad. How is such a bold choice shaping up to be one of the hottest trends of the year? We like to think it has something to do with freedom of choice; are churning out new hair basically every day. The options are endless.
Since the hair world now offers pretty much every hue on the spectrum, naturally you may want something fresh and new. Sure, celebs are taking their ‘dos to bold new heights to match their super-cars, but that doesn’t mean you need the same source of hair (unless you also have a £150k sports car in your garage!). For us normal folk, rocking a neon green hair is a pure form of … and a major aesthetic. Because this lime hue will never pass for a natural-looking hair , the bolder, brighter, and faker equates to better! This has taken a lot of pressure off the idea that we must pick a hue that looks natural. Daring to be different and stand out is what all the cool kids are doing these days, didn’t you know?
