The latest selfie trend is so easy to slay.

Guys, the migraine selfie is officially a thing. It looks a whole lot better than it sounds. To qualify, you need simply pose with your hand touching your forehead. Allow Kaia Gerber to demonstrate:

Naturally, Kylie Jenner has also had a migraine moment or two.

Why is this pose catching on? It allows you to frame your face and fix your hair in a seemingly casual way. It’s a pose we can all pull off, and there are many variations to try, as demonstrated below by Gigi Hadid and Rita Ora.

The other big advantage of the pose is that it allows you to give yourself a natural facelift by pulling your skin back, as if Kendall Jenner needs that.

‘Migraine’ it may be, but that doesn’t mean you need to seem particularly stressed about the situation. Ashleigh Graham is flourishing with her headache on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

As this cover also demonstrates, the migraine selfie is hugely conducive to a gorgeous fashion moment. It’s great styling that will take your migraine to the max, raking in those likes and burning up your socials.

Start with a great top. You’re looking for something with a gorgeous sleeve detail, a print, a frill, or all of the above.

Now for accessories. A great hat paired with the perfect sunnies (tinted shades are so in right now!) confirm that you are consciously serving a look.
