Listen up posers, traditional selfies are old news now - there's a new emergence in the Instasphere. It’s all about the ‘helfies’, similar to selfies but totally all about the hair.

The idea behind a helfie is that people get to show off their head-turning hairstyles, whether it's a brand new 'do, a colour change or a perfect blow-dry. It's obvious from the slew of celebrity helfies on Instagram recently that this is one selfie trend that's set to stick around.

​From Vanessa Hudgens' gorgeous braided crown to Emma Roberts’ check-it-out updo to the style-changing selfies of Beyonce and Rita Ora, helfies from celebland are fuelling our Instagram habit hard right now.

​Whether you want to get in on the trend with a sultry helfie like Miranda Kerr’s rock-star blow-dry or go au natural like Alessandra Ambrosio and her dreamy beach waves, if you're papping yourself, make sure your hair is the main event.

It's not everyday we have a good hair day so why not let the world know when your style works out like a charm?

We love this new selfie fad and we might just start posting some of our own. Not sure how to do your hair in the morning? Helfies are there for instant inspiration too. What's not to love?
