Remember that rainbow-dyed undercut design shaped like a cat that went viral earlier this year? It was posted on Modern Salon's Instagram account and promptly incited a chorus of "oohs and ahhs!" across the globe. Undercut designs aren't anything new, of course, but we have noticed an uptick in their prevalence on social media channels lately.

Naturally we wanted to share our findings. As you'll see, there are some super pretty, super daring designs out there. And even if you're not a risk taker, you can at least appreciate the artistry that went into the following undercuts.

For example, Instagram user mermaidians posted this picture of her rainbow neon hair that, when lifted, shows a UFO undercut design. Talk about an out of this world hair design.

The colors in this design are insane, and the longer undercut creates some gorgeous texture.

|ART•DECØ•HAIR| Today, I was Knighted. By my boo thang @guy_tang This jaw dropper is my girl @siennaspalding who I miss already! I literally have no idea how this all happened! I DMed Sisi about cutting her hair probably 2-3 months ago, about. And as soon as @michellephan contacted me, I knew I had the perfect model! But Im at a loss for words at the day we had. Our second model and my gorgeous best friend @megan_nopants went the full 12 hours today. They deserve all the credit!!! And a big 🙄 to um, my dream woman @missglamave for uh-being super pretty.
