There’s a new hairstyle in town called “cat hair,” and it’s got everyone buzzing. But what’s better is the unexpected Instagram trend that sees women, men, kids, of all ages and demographies, shaving not only cats, but, spiders, bugs and cartoons into their hair. And they are looking good. (Instagram)

Are you a serious cat person who loves wacky new hair styles? A new trend is picking up that fuses the two passions in a burst of colours and sharp cuts, making the ultimate social media beauty craze.

That’s right folks, people are actually shaving cat patterns onto their heads and taking Instagram by storm.

While etching designs into undercuts is nothing new (there was always one cool kid at school with the Nike tick shaved onto the side of his head), a Russian hairdresser has been incredibly busy taking things to the next level.

Aliya Askarova, who is based in St Petersburg, found Instagram fame thanks to a snap posted by one of her best clients.

Showing off a cute cat face shaved into the under layers of her hair, along with an amazing two-toned bubblegum dye job, Instagram user Katichka shared her pictured right out of Aliya’s salon, sending trend watchers into an overdrive of excitement.

Katichka isn’t the only one sporting the look though.

Over in Australia, one hair salon has also been experimenting with cat-themed hair art, and have been tad more edgy.

Captioned “Evil little kitty Kat!!”, one customer at Chops Hair Bar in New South Wales walked away with a more menacing looking moggy that’s sure to be a conversation starter.

Hidden until you’ve pulled your hair up into a topknot, the cat etchings come as an extension of 2015’s undercut trend which included graphic shapes being shaved into buzz cuts.

If buzzcuts are your thing but not cats, below is a selection of the more popular undercut styles. Clearly, there more to explore.
