One hairstylist in Tennessee is going viral after adding some much-appreciated color to her life.

No, we’re not talking about her hair color, although she was in the middle of getting foil highlights; we’re talking about the video of Jennifer Murphy of Elizabethton, Tennessee, that’s now gone viral with over 10 million views on Facebook.

Jennifer was having her hair done at the Enkore Salon & Day Spa, where she also works when some coworkers asked her to compete in a lip-sync challenge that’s been making the rounds in town. While she was a bit hesitant at first, Jennifer decided to be a good sport about it.

Wearing the salon cape and a pair of flip-flops, Jennifer set out to put the “funk” back in Bruno Mars’s song, “Uptown Funk.”


As her colleagues work diligently in the background, Jennifer proceeds to lip-sync the entire song from start to finish, all while highlighting her performance with some truly impressive dance moves!


She’s just so into it! At one point, we’re pretty sure we saw Jennifer pull off a convincing moonwalk.

We hear you asking, “But did she do the robot?” Well, settle down, ya’ll, because of course, she did the robot!


After she finished the video, the staff at Enkore really wanted to post it on Facebook, but Jennifer was reluctant. When she finally acquiesced, she was blown away when the video went viral almost instantly! Even though she was surprised at her newfound web stardom, she says she couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.

“I think … there is so much stress in the world,”Jennifer explained. “[We’ve] got to have some fun. I always love to laugh, and I love to make people laugh, so hopefully, that is what this video has done.â€
