We love unicorns, but never have we thought of styling our hair into the shape of a unicorn horn.

But someone else did think of it, and the new trend is quickly garnering attention as women expertly twist or braid their hair in order to achieve a “horn.” It’s pretty awesome, and Instagram has all the proof you need.
Now you don’t have to admire unicorns — you can actually be one.
Go one step further than candy-coloured hair — go full unicorn, thanks to clever braiding.
The look requires a lot of hairspray — and may be hard to brush out, but it looks awesome.
But how do you create your own unicorn horn at home? Luckily, there’s a YouTube tutorial from Venus Angelic, who shows unicorn lovers just how “transform into a magical unicorn cutie.”
First, take your bangs and some of the hair at the top of your head and create a ponytail. Secure it with an elastic band as you would usually, just pull it all the way until you get to the very last loop.
Then twist the hair around the bun, creating a cone-like shape. Make the cone pointier by pulling the top of it.
Finish the look with a lot of hairspray.
The look is not for everyone, but for those who are a bit more adventurous, this is definitely something to try out — and the perfect way to unleash your inner mythical being.
