A new filter is going viral on social media that changes your hair to any colour you can think of, and users are obsessed with it because it’s so realistic.

There are hundreds of hair colour changing filters on Instagram, but they’re always just a little bit rubbish. They never quite apply to your hair properly and they always look really fake.

However, Instagram users have finally found one that actually works, and they can’t stop raving about it. Here’s exactly how to get the hair colour filter that everyone is talking about.

What is the Hair Colour Filter on Instagram

The new Instagram filter that social media users are obsessed with is simply being referred to as the Hair Colour Filter, but it’s actually called the Cabelo Colorido Filter.

When applied, it changes your hair colour to pretty much any shade you can think of. You can make your hair pink, blue, purple, red, brown green orange, blonde and black.

But what is is that makes this filter different from any of the other hair colour changing filters on Instagram? Well, this one is super realistic. It applies the colour to your hairline perfectly, and it doesn’t spil over the edges of the hair into the rest of the frame like most of them do.

In fact, you could even use this filter to try and trick your friends that you’ve dyed your hair, it’s really that realistic!

How to get the Instagram Hair Colour Filter

  • Open Instagram and click on ‘Your Story’ in the top left-hand corner to add to your Instagram Story.
  • Slide through all the filters at the bottom to the magnifying glass at the end.
  • Click on this and press another magnifying glass in the top right-hand corner to bring up the search bar.
  • Search ‘Cabelo Colorido’ and click on the filter by @igorsaringer.
  • Press ‘Try it’ to use the filter.
