Hair tinsel is the latest beauty trend set to take this Christmas by storm. We caught up with Tips & Toes’ hair stylist who reveal everything you need to know about Instagram’s most festive fro.
How does hair tinsel work?
“Hair tinsel is created by thin a glitter thread that is tied into the hair in different sections close to the scalp.”
How long does it last?
“Anywhere between a few days up to two weeks, depending on how well you take care of it. Brush gently and don’t tug on strands.”
Can I still use hot appliances on my hair?
“The threads are made from made from polyester, which can withstand a certain amount of heat, so you can still use your curling tongues or straighteners.”
What’s the best way to style my hair afterwards?
“Loose, romantic curls are a great option as the glitter threads will shine softly as they peep through the curls. We also love a super sleek ponytail.”
