If you have a passion for hair and, especially, haircolor, there's no doubt you've heard of Guy Tang. Tang took social media by storm through his constant postings of vibrant haircolor finishes in bright, vivid Pravana shades; metallic Kenra hues; and taking Olaplex to the masses by being an ambassador for the bond-building additive.

The Tulsa, Oklahoma, native moved to Los Angeles about seven years ago and has since become a near-household name. He has more than 1 million Instagram followers, and his following grows by the thousands every day. It's nearly impossible to get into one of his live Periscope casts filled with his #hairbesties (including many collaborations with his #hairwifey @vividartistichairdesign) because not only is he incredibly talented, but he also takes viewers along on an educational journey so they can learn the techniques, formulas and fun behind each look. His Paranormal Hairtivity videos make us laugh so hard--but we are also blown away by the artist's incredible talent, skill and charm.

To help celebrate MODERN's December issue theme of Best.Year.Ever, here's our roundup of, what we consider, some of Tang's BEST Instagram looks. And, you probably already are, but make sure you follow him on Instagram @GUY_TANG.
