So, let’s start things off by explaining what this trend entails. The look is a mixture of the rainbow hair and the glow-in-the-dark hair trends, but with the added bonus that it actually looks fluorescent – even without a black light! So, there’s no need to wait until your next rave to show off your brilliant new colour. Hooray!  Credit: @guy_tang

But just how do you achieve such a magical-looking mane? Well, you’ll be relieved to know, that the process used is quite similar to that of rainbow hair, with your colourist most likely choosing to free-hand paint the neon hues onto your tresses, to create your phoenix hair. Credit: @guy_tang
