Forget glow sticks, it’s all about glow-in-the-dark hair color right now!
It sounds totally crazy, but it really is a thing. In fact, it’s technically called “phoenix hair” and was created by Insta-famous celebrity hair colorist Guy Tang using Kenra Professional’s Color Creative Neon Collection that’s designed to glow when underneath a black light. The high voltage colors range from pinks and reds to yellows and purples, and look just as killer in the daylight as they look underneath the blacklight.
Check out THIS video for a full tutorial from Guy, but the gist is, you have to bleach out your hair first in order for the saturated neon shades to show up. Then, you’ll want to have your colorist apply the Kenra Professional hair color to the roots, working their way down the mid shaft to the ends. The result is a super fiery look that glows like crazy underneath a black light. Perfect for festival season!
While this look is super cool and is a surefire way to get noticed by your crush, you don’t want to try this out on your own at home. Definitely consult a professional hair colorist on the color transformation to make sure your hair can handle it.
Bleaching your entire head can be really taxing on your hair, especially if you tend to use hot tools a lot or go in the pool or ocean often. And then there’s the upkeep which is also a job in itself—but hey, that’s the price you pay to have the coolest hair in your friend group, right?
