Technically, “selfies” have been a thing since the camera was first invented back in the 1800s. But only recently have selfies become so mainstream that you probably can’t get through your day without seeing one. It’s even hard to find a “run of the mill” selfie these days with all the new poses and selfie-taking techniques being invented on the daily. It feels like every day a new posing hack hits the web and convinces us to step up our selfie game. At this point in your life, you’ve probably tried every selfie face known to man and posted it on Instagram (or, if it wasn’t Insta-worthy, sent it to your bestie on Snapchat).
You’ve mastered the duck face thanks to the Kardashians, fish gape, and sparrow face — but have you tried T. rex hands? Huda Kattan, queen of Instagram beauty trends and selfies, recently shared with her followers one of her favorite selfie poses that she named after Tyrannosaurus rex, and it’s pretty much as amazing as it sounds.
You might not have heard the pose referred to as T. rex hands before, but you’ve definitely seen it. You bend your fingers like a claw and position your hand over your chin, hair, or even forehead. Huda said she thought of the name because “if you zoom out and you do it to both hands, you look like kind of like a T-Rex.” Feel free to get creative with the T. rex hands selfie. Bite the tip of your thumb. Bite your pointer finger. Heck, cover up half your face with your hand. It doesn’t matter! As long as your hand is on your face somewhere, you’re killing the trend.
