Hair-stencilling is the latest hair craze taking over Instagram, with its bold colours and pretty patterns making it a firm favourite to be a major festival beauty trend. 

We take a look at how celebrities, hairstylists and beauty addicts have been mastering the trend and giving us major inspiration in the process - click through for the full gallery...

We love the way Pixie Lott has previously played with the trend, using multi-coloured stencils to create a headband-esque look.

If you want to try the trend but need to cover it up for work, take note from @janine_ker_hair and simply stencil the bottom section of your locks, so you can wear the top section over it later!

Don't be afraid to play around with different patterns - we're loving this polka dot creation by @janine_ker_hair

Try a contrasting colour to your hair's natural shade for a statement look - we love the way @charlanniie opted for a bold black design on her platinum blonde tresses!

You don't have to dye all of your tresses - a small section of hair like the one @howtohairgirl rocked can make for a great festival look.

If you're already rocking bright coloured hair, choose stencil shades that will complement it - we're loving the pastel-hued look created by @smithanddavissalon
