List Rules
Vote up the ugly styles that would lose every hair competition.

There are two types of Instagram hair trends. There are the covetable styles that appear on your IG feed and inspire you to take your cut and color to the next level. Then there are the Instagram hair trends that aren't great - the styles that you stare at for minutes on end wondering, "Who in the world would do that to their hair?" It’s as if these weird trends put you under a spell, and you can’t look away.

You’ll love to hate many of these looks. Please don't try them at home.

    Cheeto Hair Curlers


    A post shared by grav3yardgirl (@grav3yardgirl) on

    This is the hair curling tool you'll never want to use - Cheetos. Even if twisting your tresses around the crunchy snack resulted in the bounciest curls ever, it wouldn't be worth the cheesy Cheeto smell.

    Pizza Undercuts

    When hairbymisskellyo debuted her pizza-inspired undercut and color she said: 

    This photo got me so much love and so much hate, so much attention, so much anger.

    But any way you slice it, this look is just wrong.

    Glitter Roots

    This style makes you look like a fairy with a serious case of dandruff! The glitter roots trend made the rounds during festival season, which is all well and good. After all, Coachella is about experimenting and getting a little weird. But this hairstyle is best left on the festival grounds and out of your everyday rotation.

    Excessive Bobby Pins


    A post shared by Stylenomics (@stylenomics_insta) on

    Blame it on the fashion scene. High-end fashion houses like Erdem, Maki Oh, and Ports 1961 all sent models down the runway in 2017 and 2018 with excessive bobby pins in their hair, and the trend caught fire. Now the look is everywhere, from Instagram to your best friend's ponytail.

    Striped Hair Color

    Remember when streaky highlights were a bad thing, best avoided at all times? Lately, that rule has gone out the window. Color stylists intentionally add precise stripes of contrasting colors to their clients' hair. It has to stop soon, though.

    Pixelated Color


    A post shared by Ursula Goff (@uggoff) on

    Sure, pixelated hair color looks cool in a fresh photo. But as soon as your hair starts growing (the next day), the potential for your fresh look to turn into a fail is high. This trend has been around since March 2018, and it's already time to go.
