This new trend is taking hair color to outer space

We've said it before, but fall 2015 really is all about bright hair.

The latest iteration of the rainbow hair trend is known as galaxy hair — and yes, it involves hair that looks like you took the whole universe and plopped it on top of your head.

Well, kinda.

Basically, you take deep hues of blue, purple and red, and apply them so they extend outward from the root.

Jamie Muniz, a Pravana stylist, told BuzzFeed that "[t]he head is a globe, and color should expand out from this, like it would around a sun. I also pulled inspiration from the concept of rings around planets."

Getting the look can take hours of sitting in a salon chair, but it's worth it to get such a head-turning look. Plus, you want to make sure your stylist knows what he or she is doing, so you get the celestial color you're craving.
