The best and most bizarre hair inspiration you’ll ever see

You’ll definitely be taking this to your hairdresser

When it comes to seeking out hair inspiration, be it different colours or hairstyles, celebrities tend to be the typical starting point. One quick scroll through the Instagram accounts of celebrities like Lucy Hale and Kylie Jenner or celebrity hairstylists such as Kristin Ess and Sarah Potempa, and you’re provided with a plethora of options where you’re sure to find a cut and colour you want to replicate.

One place where we would never expect to find hair inspiration however, is on the head of a stranger’s dog. But low and behold, the incredibly unlikely scenario is upon us and it’s all thanks to one Twitter user, Kerbie Gibbs who wrote, “My dog’s ear is like the perfect picture to show your hairdresser if you want beachy waves and caramel highlights.”

And after one look at the canine’s ridiculously luscious and shiny fur, we can’t help but wholeheartedly agree.

Not only does the dog’s hair appear soft, smooth, and as though it has been perfectly styled into beachy waves, its chocolate fur is so seamlessly blended with caramel highlights that it would make any hairdresser proud.

So if you’ve been stuck in a hair rut and can’t seem to find the look for you, maybe this dog’s ear fur is the perfect (albeit bizarre) place to start.

Are you tired of balayage? Then this technique is a great alternative for the low maintenance colour of your dreams.
