Celebrities like Lauren Conrad, Katy Perry, Jordan Sparks and Nicki Minaj have all been spotted sporting bright neon hair. Why the sudden need to douse your tresses with a dose of neon, because it’s a fun youthful way to express yourself and best of all it’s not permanent.  While some stars opt for the chic and trendy hair chalking technique, others prefer to go the semi-permanent dye route or even don stunning neon wigs. What we love about this trend is the total abandon of fashion norms, these stars are rocking what they love and that’s what fashion is all about.

If you’re just getting started with the neon hair trend we suggest your start small. One of the simplest and most temporary ways to go is with the hair chalking method. We recommend chalking the end of your hair with your favorite bright color and then putting your hair up in a bounce curly pony tail. Even though you’ll be rocking a bold color choice in your hair, the style is still sophisticated and chic.  If you’re looking to make an even bolder splash with your neon hair we suggest trying an ombre neon style, where the hair starts off as a light color at the top and slowly fade to dark toward the bottom. You can choose any color you like but it looks great in peach, purple and blue.

Try The Trend Tips

Ready to be bold and brazen with neon hair, well before you rush off to your colorist here are a few tips to help you figure out what will look best on you.

If you have fair skin don’t go for anything overly bright, you can still rock the trend but try pastels colors or softer hues, to avoid looking like a ghost.

If you’re a little skiddish about this trend try wearing fake neon hair extensions, this is a great way to test out the look without putting your hair on the line.
