With multicolor dye jobs taking over Instagram feeds, spotting one all-over color is unusual. It’s like seeing a racehorse in a field of unicorns. Nonetheless, neon peach hair is glowing up on Instagram. And when I say glowing, I mean that literally.
The fluorescent orange look went viral last summer when Jessica Jewel, a Los Angeles–based hairstylist, custom mixed a neon peach color that was so bright I felt like I needed sunglasses so I could stare at it forever. (You can find more about Jewel in a recent edition of my column Five on Five.) A single picture of the vivid hair color was liked more 20,000 times on Instagram in just a couple days, and a video of the color process in action has been watched almost 90,000 times. With summer just around the corner, neon peach is poised to be the most popular hair-color trend of the season once again.
What separates the incredibly vibrant look from other peach hair trends is Pulp Riot’s popular Neon Electric dye collection. Jewel combined a hot pink called Candy and an electric orange dubbed Lava to create the color. To get super-specific, she mixed together four parts Candy and one part Lava. When brushed all over her client’s pre-lightened hair and washed out with cold water, it looked like this:

| 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
Pulp Riot is only sold to professionals, so you’ll have to make an appointment at a salon that stocks the Neon Electric collection to get in on this neon peach fantasy. Be sure to show your stylist some inspo images like these:
