The newest craze on TikTok is the viral Blonde Hair filter, which needless to say, does exactly what it promises – here’s how to try it out for yourself.

Every week there’s a new effect that ends up popping off on TikTok, and users can garner millions of views and likes for trying out popular filters.

While many effects on TikTok are made available on the app itself, some of the most iconic ones, like the Gender Swap filter, have originated from filters published via other platforms.

The latest one to go viral is the Blonde Hair filter, which as the name suggests, gives people the ability to see what blonde hair would look like on them, and some users have found that the results are actually surprisingly realistic. Here’s how you can try out the filter.

The Blonde Hair filter is only available on a free photo and video editing app called FaceApp. Once you’ve downloaded it, simply do as follows:
