Neon peach hair is sweeping Instagram as the newest and hottest hair colour trend of the minute. While we’re used to seeing flashes of colour within the creative hair trends of the social sphere, this block colour look is catching eyes in the industry for all the right reasons. It’s super bright, incredibly on-trend and falls somewhere between peach, orange and fluorescent sunshine.
| When life gives you neon peaches 🍑 🔥 | #ultabeautyproteamcontest sorry if you're tired of seeing this hair lovelies I just wanted to enter this photo for the lovely opportunity @sonyadove @ultabeauty (also I'm refreshing her color this Friday so keep an eye out for videos and I'll probably go live on IG too!)
The trend was first reported by Allure and crafted by LA-based hair stylist Jessica Jewel. As seen on her Instagram by us and her 44k followers, she created this ultra-intense colour palette using Pulp Riot’s Neon Electric dye collection, blending the perfect mix of colours, Candy and Lava. Painted onto pre-lightened hair, the result is simply breathtaking.
| Formula?! ⚗️| I've had SO many messages about this NEON PEACH hair and I wanted to share some insight. This models hair (@withcuriosity🍑🔥) is a natural level 8+. She had virgin hair and was lifted (utilizing @olaplex) to a 9/10 (no toner) After getting her to a clean canvas I used @pulpriothair 4 PTS LAVA to 1 PT CANDY. Rinse with ❄️ ICY cold water and no conditioner. Pulp Riot is conditioning AF so no worries there. When tackling transformations like this It's important to know color theory like the back of your hand. Be detail oriented – it shows! And lastly, Don't sleep on the power of your creativity. #neonpeachhair #pulpriotneons #ultabeautyproteamcontest
How is it different to other peach trends?
We’ve seen and reported on peach hair trends before, in fact, back in April we looked at peach hair and its coral to pink palette. However, the peach hair we’ve seen in the past has very much been submerged within the pastel trend. From peachy pinks to oranges, pastels have been rocking Instagram for some time. When it comes to neon peach, we’re in a whole different ballgame. Neon, fluorescent, luminous, whatever you want to call it, neon peach is brighter and bolder, giving us flashes of colour like we’ve never seen before.
Due to its popularity on Instagram when she first posted the look, Jewel posted a transformation video, showing her client going from long and blonde to choppy and neon peach during her visit to the salon.
| SURVIVAL OF THE LITTEST🍑🔥| PRESS PLAY▶️ As promised, here is the video for the NEON PEACH hair. I've received so many messages/comments about this hair it's insane- thanks for all the feedback 😛 I wish I could share the full transformation but I had some technical difficulties and some of the footage I worked SO HARD on producing was deleted. 😔 Working on data recovery options right now – if anyone has any program they've successfully used before (I've done the obvious things like check iCloud etc.) please let me know! If I do retrieve the deleted content I will be posting an updated video. NOW TO THE DETAILS: This lovely model had ALL VIRGIN hair to begin with and it was a dream to work on! After chopping her length(yes, she is donating it!) I went in with a platinum card technique and easily got her to a clean platinum canvas all over. No toner. No conditioner. Applied @pulpriothair NEONS 4PT LAVA to 1PT CANDY. Process and rinse with icy cold water. 🍑🔥🍑🔥🍑🔥 Feel free to leave any questions in the comments! #neonpeachhair #haterswillsayitsphotoshop
Due to the lightness and brightness of the neon peach vibes, you need to be prepared to go super-light, platinum blonde to achieve this colour transformation. Therefore, this means hair protection is key.
This look really lends itself to a sharp-edged lob, and we can’t get over how much the colour pops on poker straight hair. We can definitely see this colour getting more and more popular as the summer months continue.
Darker roots continue to rock with the neon peach trend. Whether that means intentional rootage or leniency on natural regrowth, that’s up to you. The darker roots look great against the brightness of the peach palette, making it a look that doesn’t necessarily require regular high maintenance.
Working phenomenally on short hair too, don’t think this is a trend simply for the longer haired ladies. On a short, cropped pixie cut, the colour pops and combines perfectly with natural make-up.
Again, using Pulp Riots dye collection, this look is neon peach combined perfectly with flashes of pastel baby pinks and oranges to create this multi-tonal and multi-dimensional result. Worked flawlessly into soft, messy waves, the trend is given a boost of texture, making us all wonder if this is a possible summer look.
It’s not a look for the faint-hearted, but peach neon is set to be the colour trend of the season and we can certainly see why. It’s bold, colourful and powerful and we are definitely looking forward to seeing lots more variations of this creative summer hair trend.
