There's a saying that goes a little something like "someone who changes their hair is about to change their life". And I don't know about you, but I feel like that catchphrase is particularly applicable when it comes to Taylor Swift.

Taylor's been known to opt for pretty drastic hair switch-ups in a way that seems to underpin album launches and world tours, and after a busy year of dropping surprise albums and winning awards, it makes sense that she'd have made her way through quite the hairstyle carousel.

This year we've seen Taylor try a balayage shag and blunt fringe, we've seen a glossy shag and blow-dried fringe, we've seen mermaid hair and cowgirl hair, a mini fringe, a curly fringe, and even a return to 2000s style poker straight hair. She hasn't done it all, but she's done, well, a lot. She even seems to be going brunette at the moment, but that's another story all together.

Anyway, she's just posted a new gallery of snaps to instagram in which her blonde hair looks... and stay with me here... backcombed? And I don't know about you, but I'm getting serious X Factor 2008 flashbacks. Scroll down to check it out for yourself.

The willow (90鈥檚 trend remix) is a thank you from me, available today only on my site 馃グ Put her on repeat for a good time but if you don鈥檛 want to have a good time there鈥檚 always champagne problems & every other song on evermore so you can get deep in your deepest feelings. 鈾ワ笍"

Don't tell me I'm not onto something. We'll all be sporting bird's nest hair by 2022. Mark my words.
