Oh dear. Lance Bass might have just killed the rainbow hair trend. While there are definitely a lot of reasons to dye one’s hair a fun, unnatural color this summer, “because you have a new single to promote” did not occur to me as one of them. But Lance Bass does, and he decided to ring in the occasion with a bright new light turquoise coif, and it’s pretty epic.

Bass debuted his new hair on Instagram, the way the kids are doing these days.

“#MyLittleBrony,” he said.

It’s been 12 years since ‘N Sync disbanded and turned into merely Justin Timberlake, but now Lance Bass has a new single of his own, a duet called “Walking on Air,” which he debuted Friday in Las Vegas, alongside the new hair.

I wasn’t sure what I’d think about this new color when I first heard about it, but now I find myself digging it. It’s a really bright, saturated shade, which I like, and it goes really well with his light colored eyes. Also, now I am a little convinced that we live in The Hunger Games, but the cool, colorful, ridiculously dressed parts in the Capitol, not the lame dustbowl stuff out in the Districts. (I can’t have been the only person who read The Hunger Games and thought, “OK, all the killing is bad, obviously. But for a postapocalyptic dystopian hell hole, all the fashion seems really fun.”)

As far as I’m concerned, the more people doing crazy shit with their hair, the better. If Lance Bass wants to go turquoise, that’s awesome. And Sam has been thinking about dying her hair blue again. Maybe Bass’ wonderful turquoise will help her make up her mind.
