We'll have to admit, Cheetos weren't the first thing that come to mind for hot hair colour inspo. But we stand corrected.
In fact, the second this is all over we'll be heading to the hairdressers with packets of the tangy, cheesy all-American snack in tow.
Why? Well it turns out the fiery orange-red tones of the iconic crisp look great on your lid, too.
Perfect for summer, we've been seeing versions of Cheetos hair all over our Insta - even Dua Lipa has been getting in on the trend with a pastel take on the hue for lockdown.
From slightly more subtle oranges to flamin' hot varieties, there's a few ways to make the finger licking colour work for you.
For those of you that want to try and recreate the look at home, Tyla has tapped SALON64 Colourist, Dylan McConnachie.
"The new Cheetos hair colour trend is already kicking off with a bang - the colour combination of red, orange and yellow creates a pop of colour intensity," he says.
Dylan explains that to achieve the bright hue, you would first need to lighten your hair. This means it's likely to be a longer process for those with naturally dark locks.
"Because this is such a vivid colour, you would need to lighten your hair beforehand," he says. "This is an ideal look for those already blonde and are bored of the standard highlights or basic scalp bleach and have been searching for something a little more daring."
Taking cues from Dua, Dylan says "if you aren't feeling brave enough you can always go for a softer shade," adding, "The great thing about this colour is every time you wash your hair and the tone fades slightly, so you will get many colour variations."
Dylan recommends Crazy Colour in Orange. "Apply to already lifted, light, blonde hair and go wild!"
You heard it here first: Cheetos hair is a summer 2020 vibe.
