Dubstep DJ Skrillex almost had a more interesting birthday than he bargained for when his hair caught on fire while he was blowing out his birthday candles.

The crowd at a private Hollywood event was singing the 25-year-old DJ a boisterous round of "Happy Birthday," and Skrillex--real name Sonny Moore--bent over to make his birthday wish.

"Your hair man!" the event emcee shouted out, and Skrillex jumped back, swatting at his shoulder-length locks and extinguishing the flames.

Disaster averted.
