Colorful Hair Trend Will Make You Want to Do Arts & Crafts With Your Mane (PHOTOS)

While a classic braid will never go out of style, there's a new hair trend that's about to give the look a run for its money. The hair tapestry trend is a thing, and it's gorgeous for summer.


Already a huge hit with beauty bloggers on Instagram, the U.K.'s Bleach London is now offering hair tapestry services to its ultracool clients.

It's like a friendship bracelet for your hair. And don't your locks deserve some love?

How difficult is it to replicate this type of look at home? Well, for starters, it's time consuming. This isn't a style for the impatient. Also, unless you're weaving it into a temporary hair extension, it looks next to impossible to do on yourself.

My suggestion? Find a salon or super-crafty friend who can help you create a hair tapestry. You'll get the sweet boho vibes without the hassle.
