This new trend, which comes in a variety of impressive and bright neon hues of pink, orange, blue, copper red and orange is lighting up salons and streets with many women taking on social media to flaunt their gorgeous tresses that make even the most daring hair styles look slightly tame. Many women; however, seem to prefer the multicolored ‘rainbow’ technique that glows very brightly under a UV light after being exposed to natural light.

Trendsetters are proudly showing off this daring look on Instagram with many using up to four different shades of neon at the same time to perfectly pull it off. While it may not be entirely new, its popularity has surged in recent weeks with many women proud to experiment it particularly using Manic Panic brand of hair products, which is believed to be responsible for fuelling the new trend. Their ‘High Voltage Classic Cream Formula Hair Care’ is said to be flying off the shelves at an alarming rate since the high-vis trend took off.

This glow-in-the-dark hair product is vegan and free from any animal product with various colors such as Cotton Candy Pink, Electric Banana, Pretty Flamingo, Electric Lizard and Siren’s Song, which can last up to six weeks. Even though the glow-in-the-dark neon look is the most striking, there are other colors such as Virgin Snow and Raven Black that are more laid back.

Whether done by an expert or at home, this glow-in-the-dark neon hair craze is captivating and sure to light up the internet even more.
