Just when we thought we saw all the crazy hair trends Instagram had to offer in 2015 (#glitterroots, #galaxyhair, #splithair, #mermanhair), hair dye enthusiasts are already experimenting with a new look in the first few weeks of 2016. Introducing: glow-in-the-dark hair.

Brushing off previous Instagram hair trends as child’s play, the hair trend of the moment allows you to showcase a glorious head of colour for both daytime and after-dark activities (hello, party-ready hair!). While blacklight hair is no new thing, (according to Manic Panic NYC, it’s been around since 1977) thanks to a few Instagram influencers like Megan McKay of @rainbowmegz and Kasey O’Hara of @hairbykaseyoh, glow-in-the-dark rainbow hair has been lighting up on our Instagram feed all weekend long.

From bright green locks to rainbow braids, flip through this double-tap worthy gallery to see 15 illuminated hairstyles to inspire your next dye job.
