Going Green: How to Rock Green Hair

For a while it was pastels and unicorn hair, but the latest hot hue showing up on every street-style star and It girl is Day-Glo green. With this neon shade making a splash on the spring 2019 runways as well, you can match your mane to your outfit of the day (or your luxury car, as certain celebs have been known to do).

But with such a bold neon hair colour, there’s a fine line between looking chic and resembling a Muppet. An all-over dye job in this electric colour is one that can be hard for most people to rock. But there are less intense and more sophisticated ways you can wear this bright hair colour and still totally look on trend. Plus, the simplest and most non-committal way to try out the trend is to use a one-day colour product like L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup in Lime Green. You simply shampoo it out after one day—which means you can flaunt this look for the weekend but go right back to looking professional for work on Monday.

How to work this neon shade into your hair look? You’ve got a few options.

Go under.

If glow-in-the-dark green on your head is too much of a look for you, try applying L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Colour to just the sections of hair underneath. Your look will still be you but with a modern, edgy highlighter hue peeking out. The colour will catch the light as you move; think of it as an unexpected beauty accessory.

Dip-dye your ends.

Just dyeing the ends of your hair is a playful way to keep your usual look but with a fun and surprising burst of colour (and you can experiment with how much length you colour). Colouring only your ends also means that you’re keeping the face-framing pieces of your hair your usual shade so it’s not a huge change from your day-to-day style. Bonus: If you have long hair, you can easily hide your glow-in-the-dark ends by pulling your hair up into a bun.

Highlight one section.

Separate one section of hair and colour it with L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup from root to tip. You know how a mullet is business in the front and party in the back? Going bright green with just a section of your hair is the modern way to have a party in the back (or side—depending on the section you’ve chosen to colour temporarily). Or if you’ve got a fringe, you can make it a party in the front by using L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup in washout neon on that section (or just brighten up the layers of fringe underneath) for a fun take on the trend.

Experiment with other neons.

Day-Glo green is the colour du jour, but if it’s not flattering with your skin tone, try another neon shade. L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup also comes in #NeonYellow and #HotPink, which may work better with your skin tone, natural hair colour or outfit. Since this product washes out when you shampoo your hair, you can be spontaneous!
