A decided contrast to the kawaii beauty looks and messy pastel hair, neon—particularly green neon—is the breakout colour of 2019.
While luxury designers juxtapose a bold beauty palette with minimalistic (almost futuristic) tailoring as seen at Kim Jones’ inaugural menswear collection for Dior Homme AW19, it’s niche streetwear brands like Cherry LA, Chinatown Market et al that are taking neon green into the everyday.
Unapologetic and inherently rebellious, neon green is so much more than a mood; it’s an attitude. Never thought you’d touch fluoro? Guess again. Here’s three ways to nail green neon’s micro trend.
Reverse Neon French Tips At Wah Nails
The iconic, London-based nail salon, Wah Nails is known across the globe for its hectic designs, and this reverse French manicure is no exception. Merging trend with tradition, the clean lines with an added shot of green at the tip catapults this classic mani into 2019.
Neon Green Eyes By Paul Venoit
Having worked with his choice of supermodels and A-List actors, fashion brands and couture houses, you’ll have seen Paul Veniot’s masterful work over the years. This time, Venoit has created an incredibly bold look with just a slick of neon green pigment across the entire lid. Effortless but impactful.
Neon Hair Tattoos At Keash LDN
Keash’s reputation in the UK precedes itself, having set up digs in 2014 in London specialising in the fine art of braids. Fast-forward half a decade and the team regularly collaborates with fashion houses and editorial campaigns to create cutting-edge looks. Case in point; temporary neon hair tattoos. The perfect way to trial the neon trend without the commitment.
