Apparently, Hair Tattoos Are A Thing…

Xavier in Fashion

We know what you're thinking. Hair tattoos? How is that a thing? But as of mid-October 2015, they are a thing.

When you think of hair tattoos, this might be the first thing that comes to mind.

Or this. But no, the head tattoos men with receding line turn to and stylish haircuts that can be usually found on dancers in the late 2000's aren't the hair tattoos that's supposed to have the potential to be one of the hottest trends this month.

Naturally, people are always curious with whatever the 18-year-old is wearing, doing, or hell, she's going to pick up a book to read the synopsis on the back one of these days and people are going to wonder what's her opinion on 18th century literature.

We gotta admit, the teen reality star has her strong pull with the trends. I guess we just have to wait and see if this one will make waves, too.

You probably have a lot of questions about this hair tattoo thing. Trust me, so do I.

Reviews seem to be positive, so far—of those who have tried them, at least. YouTuber ladollyyvita333 gives a larger hair tattoo design a try and it turned out surprisingly alright. She gives her approval to the hair accessory.

Some of the questions that are bound to be raised upon seeing this hair tattoo things is: “How on earth do I get that off on my hair?” “How long does it stay?” “Will it get torn apart and wreck my hair?” According to her tutorial, it peels quite easily and won't pull out your hair more than what is healthy. That's a relief.

You Tube beauty blogger Lacy Nicole also tried them out to see for herself. “I was really impressed at how simple it was. I thought it's gonna be some big hassle,” she says.
