Instagrammer LollypopLocks recently hosted a contest on the social media network themed around Star Wars. Participants had to come up with a hair style inspired by the galaxy far, far way. Some hairstylists used dye to emulate various colors seen in the films — like the color of lightsabers, etc. Others mixed dyes with shaved shapes. Stylist and rainbow hair dyeing expert Anya Goy took top prize with an impressive Boba Fett cut and dye. She managed to get such clean lines. Impressive. Most impressive.
A few other neat entries included a shaved Death Star, stormtrooper, and BB-8.
