Graffiti Hair Will Turn Your Tresses Into Art

Graffiti hair is the latest trend for your locks, and we can't get enough of these insane designs.

Looking for a fun dye job, but not ready to fully commit? If so, the latest graffiti hair trend that is painting our Instagram feeds is totally up your alley.

From geometric shapes to crazy, seemingly random lines, the trend can be a simple or as complex as you want. Some Instagrammers are showing off some seriously creative artwork and proving that graffiti looks good on more than just a wall!

The designs are stenciled onto clean, dry hair with temporary hairspray colors of your choice. While this means the colors will definitely wash out after a few days and might not last as long as you'd like, it also gives you a chance to attempt your next creative idea even quicker! A lot of hair salons are getting in on the graffiti hair action, but with a few stencils and temporary hairspray colors of your own, this is one trend that is easy to DIY.

Convinced yet? Before you head to the store or salon, check out some of these insanely awesome looks for more inspiration!
