The sky never ceases to amaze any of us. We can’t help but be overcome with wonder when we look at the beautiful warm colors at dawn and dusk or the dark colors and sparkling lights in the night sky. It would be an understatement to say that we are completely obsessed with the outer space.

It’s no surprise then that anything to do with the outer space is almost always trending, both in art and fashion. From the galaxy print tights, dresses, backpacks, and snapback hats to the watercolor paintings and photoshopped images with a Galaxy overlay. But some people have gone one step further, combining art and fashion, to paint their hair in beautiful tones inspired by the planets, stars, galaxies, and nebulas in the cosmos.

These 20 stellar, galaxy-themed hair paintings will leave you in complete awe.
