DIY queens, it's about to be lit.
Hair is having a real moment right now. Hair has always been "in" but 2016 has taken hair trends to a completely different level. You could quite literally shave your head and stencil every word from The Declaration of Independence into it and find yourself in the Teen Vogue trends section. That being said, graffiti hair might be the summer hair trend you need to try.
Hair stenciling has been on the scene for a while now as the line between hair dressing and actual artistry gets thinner and thinner. Over at Buzzfeed, they got Janine Ker to demonstrate her stunning hair graffiti/stenciling prowess.

It's super versatile, eye catching, and impermanent. That means you don't have to wait for your hair to grow out to get rid of the designs if you get bored of them.
Ker says that you don't need to have a specific type of hair for this trend but that an updo to start is easiest.
If you're the daring type, you can do try this trend yourself. Get together with a friend (that you trust a whole lot), check out some stencil designs on Amazon or Etsy and go wild with some spray-on hair tint. This year's summer trend? DIY graffiti tresses.
