Ever thought your hair was missing that special Christmas something? How about strands of actual glitter? If that sounds right up your street, then prepare to fall in love with hair tinsel.
Giving us serious 90s hair mascara vibes, hair tinsel sees strips of glitter added to your natural hair, giving you that extra pizzazz every time you swish your locks. The good news is that this look doesn’t require £500 and hours in a salon chair – you can easily do it yourself using a few different methods.
The easiest option is to tie the glitter strands to a kirby grip, slide the grip just under the top layer of your hair to hide it, then let your look sparkle! This method is also super easy to remove, as all you need to do is pull out the clips and you’re back to normal.
