If you’re looking for the next best shock factor, look no further than this kindergarten-craft-inspired trend. Dyeing your complete head of hair or highlighting random strands a funky color isn’t exactly a new advancement in the beauty world — Kylie Jenner and Katy Perry are crazy hair color veterans. Recently, however, members of hair color culture just took this candy-coloring trend to the next level.

Remember the days of county fairs and kid parties when you would gather around a huge round table and fill open containers with beach sand dyed bright colors? You’d drizzle a bit through a funnel into a plastic bottle, sometimes molded into a shape, resulting in the colorful trophy you’d place on your bedroom shelf. Sand art was pretty cool back then, and it’s pretty cool now; as a hairstyle.
