Everyone knows that when you make a drastic change to your hair, you're secretly hoping for a huge reaction from everyone around you. The moment when no-one comments on your new look is one of quiet devastation. 

To be fair, dyeing your hair bright violet is pretty much guaranteed to get that kind of 'wow' response, as it's not exactly subtle. But Sabrina Abu-Obeid, a 24-year-old from Melbourne who recently dyed her hair a bright purple shade, probably didn't expect a reaction quite this big. A video of her new hair has gone viral, mostly because it's blowing people's minds in the same vein as the legendary 'the dress'. Does colour even exist?

Sabrina's boyfriend first noticed her hair's magical properties when she walked from the bathroom to the kitchen. Basically, it completely changes colour through mind-bending trickery, appearing blue in one light, and a pinkly-violet in another. Sure, we all get that it's just colours looking different in different lights. But still. 

They quickly filmed the weird optical illusion and, being full-time vloggers, decided to post it on Youtube, where it quickly got a tonne of views. "We knew it would get some attention," Sabrina told Buzzfeed, "but we definitely didn't expect it to go as viral as it did."
