The internet has seen a surprising amount of new hair trends spring up. We’ve have rainbow oil slick hair, galaxy hair, inspired by the glorious colours of space, pumpkin hair, which takes on autumnal tones, and now there’s unicorn hair.
Apparently there are two types of this hair trend (who knew?) One is colour based and the other is exactly what you’d think, a horn, made out of hair, stuck on the front of your head.
The colour trend of unicorn hair is where you use pretty pastel colours of greens, mauves, lilacs and pinks all over your hair in a kind of pretty, fairy fantasy way.
The other unicorn trend is literally a horn of hair.
Whilst it may not appeal to the majority of people on the street, it has gained enough of a following for us to give it a mention here.
Followers on Instagram and other social media have been keen to point out that the two are not mutually exclusive, in fact, when the hair is twisted into a horn, it looks better if the hair is dyed in pastel shades.
And the trend has even reached top notch magazines such as Cosmopolitan, who has just featured it as a top style to watch for 2016.
There are also experts on You Tube and other internet sources who are willing to provide free tutorials to those who are not confident in making a horn.
One of those people is You-Tuber Venus Angelic (probably not her real name). Miss Venus not only shows viewers how to create a hair horn, but she also gives advice on how to create the whole look, should you so wish.
Other experts says that the easiest way to make the horn is to start with a ponytail on the top of your head. Then, instead of pulling the hair all the way through, you leave it at the half-way point, this forms a loop of hair. You then wrap rest of the hair in the pony around the loop into a cone shape.
Once this is done you’ll need to pin the hair in place and pull the top out to make the horn a little longer. Now spray with hairspray or fixing spritz to keep in place.
If you want a really big and proud horn you could always add some clip in hair or extensions before you make the unicorn.
Thanks to Instagram the unicorn trend is set to become this season’s latest hair hit.
One person who has really embraced the unicorn trend is Kirstyn Yanniello who has tried several different unicorn styles.
And guys are also getting in on the act, with hairstylist Josh Congreve posting his latest creation for all to see.
As for us, we think it’s just a little bit too weird to stick around for long.
