Y2K fashion is back and better than ever, baby! Crop tops and low rise jeans are being spotted everywhere; and frosted makeup looks are being adorned by fashion and beauty aficionados all over the place. Thanks to TikTok, Y2K fashion continues its comeback, and the recent addition to this fad is… tinsel hair!
Folks on the clock app have been embracing tinsel hair – or in other words, fairy hair – that elevates the appearance of even normal, boring, pin-straight hair. It adds vibrancy and literal sparkle to hair that makes you look like a total fae in the woods.
Now, you might be thinking of ATROCIOUS tinsel hair, where there are clumps of tinsel all over the scalp – but it’s not the case for this trend.
Am I too old for this? 😂
The tinsel/fairy hair trend adds so much life to hair, and the way it shimmers under the light as it sways is simply divine! To get the tinsel hair look, you could book an appointment at a hair salon that provides this service. However, considering that this trend is still in its infancy, especially in Malaysia, finding a hair salon that does tinsel hair can be quite tough.
But hope is not completely lost, as you can still get tinsel hair by doing it yourself. It’s super easy to do and it will only take you a few minutes to get the sparkly hair you desire.
Tinsel/Fairy hair step-by-step tutorial:
- Grab a strand of tinsel and fold it in half.
- Create a slip knot loop on the bend side of the tinsel.
- With only a strand of hair, insert your hair into the loop and tighten it right at the root.
- Do a few on the rest of your head and you’re done!
Here’s a video tutorial for easy guidance:
For those who are still hesitant and worry that you may have tinsel on your hair forever, fret not, my dears. The tinsel on your hair will simply fall off – much like how your hair normally does on a day-to-day basis. Depending on how much tinsel you have on your hair, it’ll probably take a couple of weeks before every tinsel falls off your hair.
With festivals and concerts returning, tinsel hair will boost your look to a whole new level. Your hair will shine and sparkle like no other! If this has sold you on this hair trend, and you want to look for tinsel to get fairy hair, click HERE and purchase now!
