Polish singer @agbe_ released a video of her dying her hair at home with just two simple items.
The sapphire-haired influencer added a vibrant pink stripe to her locks using just a pair of hair straighteners and a bottle of perfume.
She started off by dousing the straighteners in scent and then blew on them, presumably to remove the moisture.
She then ran them through a chunk of hair revealing a pink stripe of colour previously not visible.

Wowed by the home-beauty technique, flocks of Tiktokers have jumped to recreate the technique, only to be left disappointed.
Replicating the video exactly, a number of women – both with blue and more natural brown tones – have failed miserably at adding the rose-coloured tint.
She said: “Not only will this not work as an effective way of noticeably changing hair colour, doing so will inevitably cause damage and could lead to hair loss if it’s already in a fragile state.”
Viewers of the video have suggested that something could be awry.
One said: “You can see the pink powder on the straighteners lol.”
When another agreed: “There was pink powder on the straightener and she was holding the pink powder.”
While a third agreed: “She has something on her hand.”
