Glow-in-the-Dark Hair Might Be the Best Thing From This 'Star Wars'-Themed Hair Contest

Instagram

The Star Wars fandom universe is vast, touching dark ends of the internet — including the Instagrams of hairstylists and colorists.

In honor of the latest film in the franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, hair gurus took to Instagram for an online contest called #StarWarsPopLocks. Led by several hairstylists on Instagram, including Samantha Daly (@bottleblonde76), Rachel La'Roux and Sam Daly (who share the handle @lollypoplocks), the contest called on Instagram users to post their best Star Wars-inspired hairstyles.

And did they deliver. The winning style was a Boba Fett style, designed by Anya Goy, a professional hair colorist and author of a book on rainbow-colored hair. Her "Boba Fett" hair — which recreates the character's famous full-face mask — will be the profile picture for @imallaboutdahair and @LollyPopLocks for the remainder of 2015.

But impressive as that is, it was the glow-in-the-dark hair that got our attention. As PopSugar notes, we've seen our fair share of rainbow hair but this one stands out — literally. Makeup artist Mishele DiMaria's neon-colored, glow-in-the-dark combo — one of several entries she made to the contest — used a blacklight to give off that outer space effect, according to her Instagram account.

The winner, of course, was a little more subtly dramatic:

Now you can't say you don't know what to wear to your local Star Wars screening.
