It is a truth universally acknowledged that Kanye West is a major fashion force. He's been the face of Balmain, his Yeezy shows are the hottest tickets in town, and even his music videos are basically high fashion short films.

But now Kanye has become a beauty trendsetter, too — by embracing the hottest hair trend of 2016.

That's right, everyone: Kanye is now a pastel unicorn. Yes. Really.

Earlier in December, Yeezus popped up in New York with blonde hair.

This was right after he was discharged from the hospital. And as anyone who has ever dealt with mental health issues knows, sometimes making a change to your appearance can help you feel more in control — and more like yourself. Rock that platinum hair, 'Ye. Get well soon.

And then yesterday, Kanye made ANOTHER major hair transformation — this time into a literal pink and gold unicorn.

SUNSET MERMAID HAIR REALNESS. I'm so into this neon gold into peachy-pink faded look, it's nuts.

Nobody — not even Kanye — could escape from the rainbow hair trend of 2016.

Not smiling while ruling his pastel goth kingdom makes him smile.

Are you into Kanye's new unicorn hair? Is he the One Rainbow Merman to rule us all?
