Butterbeer Hair Is The Viral Colour Craze Every Harry Potter Fan Deserves
Magic is real.
Forget Hermione Granger’s sleekeazy potion and Luna Lovegood’s bright blonde mane because the true hair inspiration of the Harry Potter series is actually a steaming pint of butterbeer.
Proving that J.K. Rowling’s universe will probably still be unfolding a thousand years from now, a beauty trend is gaining traction in which vloggers and hairstylists are using gold, auburn, and copper shades to recreate the surface of the iconic beverage.
Let's get checking out an update from MTV News...
The moniker was initially coined by Revelist, who pointed out that the trio of colours bring to the mind the foaming tankards of butterscotch available to purchase across the wizarding world.
Potterhead’s already have something of a penchant for red-heads, considering the Weasleys and Lily Evans (AKA the best characters in the series) are all flame-haired Gryffindors.
There doesn’t seem to be any definitive #butterbeerhair hashtag trending on Instagram, but we’ve gathered up a selection of some of the most glorious creations we’ve stumbled across so far.
Agh, we'll take the lot.
An immediate 50 points to any witch, wizard, or muggle, who walks into their local salon and requests butterbeer hair with no further explanation.
