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
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.
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.
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.
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.
