The Green Hair Trend
Green hair has been sweeping Instagram; everywhere we scroll highlighter heads are popping up.
This hair color may have become super popular because of its ability to help the wearer stand out, and how underdone it was over the past few years. Green hair has taken root because of it being fresh and looking great on a bunch of skin tones.
Keys To Getting Green Hair
1. Use Extensions
It is not required that you use extensions to get this hair color.
However, it is more comfortable and more healthy for your hair to use extensions instead. If you choose to use your real hair, you will have to undergo several lightening sessions using bleach, and then after several weeks, you will be able to get your hair dyed the light green.
Furthermore, if you opt not to use extensions, you will have to get color retouches and adopt a new hair care regimen that allows your hair to flourish while chemically altered by the coloring.
Some companies like Private Label Extensions offer customized Bundles as unique order items or exclusives. Customized bundles are extensions that are already custom colored with exotic hair colors like green, pink or purple essentially colors that are not natural hair colors or blonde.
Using blonde hair is one of the most straightforward options without fighting for the right blend, or paying per bundle for coloring.
2. Use Dyes
Repeatedly recommended products via trusted Youtubers are Kiss Express semi-permanent hair dye, and Manic Panic.
They both have the ability to last for long periods of time and their vibrant color selection. Always purchase at least 3-5 bottles to get full coverage and the brightest color combination possible. Stretch your freshly wet bundles out one by one onto the table.
Cover the bundles in dye using the applicator brush, applying two to three coats for each bundle or side. Allow hair to sit for 25 minutes before rinsing. Add foil for quicker processing.
But if foil is added let hair sit for less time and frequently check because stripping or thinning can take place due to over processing. Repeat if necessary.
Let's Get Into The Celebrity Looks!

She is #QueenOfColors! She has worn every color in the rainbow and popping out in a green wig is no different.
Lil Kim has rocked this color before any of the other ladies on the list, and by Instagrams standards, it is debatable if she rocked it best. However, the first time she wore the color, she rocked it with big curls in a Marilyn Monroe kind of style.
And this time at this year's New York Fashion Week, she took the runway with a long, drenched lime green wig.
She quickly corned the market on green hair and became a fan favorite. She wore her hair in a cute bob with a side part. K. Michelle's neon style came with darker roots.

Her wig was the opposite of her big sister Kim.
The Jenner sister wore her slime green hair in a bob style with a side part; however, it wouldn't be Kylie criticized! While she looked gorgeous in color many were opposed to her wearing the highlighter hair.

Which made it stand out more in the crowd of neon heads we've seen circulating the internet lately.
