And it will TAKE YOU BACK to the summertime of your youth. TBH we’re kind of obsessed. Shibori hair, a tie dyed hair technique, is making us re-live our summer camp days in all their row boating, Kumbaya-singing glory.

On Insta, Ramirez writes, “I’ve wanted to create this look for at least three years. I finally felt skilled enough to achieve my vision.” She totally nailed it. You can watch Ramirez bring her vision to life in a video here. It’s a true work of art!

Here are more variations of tie-dye hair for ~inspiration~:
