These Ideas for Neon Hair Tips/Ombres Are Perfect for Summer

Neon hair tips have the graduated look of an ombre without dying all of the hair on your head, which is good for summer.

Summer is a relaxed time when people wear casual clothes to enjoy outdoor activities or go on vacation. It’s an ideal occasion to work the neon hair trend into your daily look. But you don’t have to dye all of the hair on your head, because this season neon hair tips are popping up more often.

Here are 11 such looks that were posted by hairstylists on Instagram, and selected by Slutty Raver Costumes, to demonstrate how trending neon hair tips or partial ombres are.

Neon hair tips are a more low key version of a full blown ombre that are making waves this spring and summer. If you want to do something different with your hair, but you have a job, then neon hair tips and partial ombres are a nice alternative to more extreme hair coloring techniques.
