The Tinsel Hair Looks From Our Saved Folder on Instagram
2019 has provided us with some of the best hair trend rivals — scrunchies, 80s up-do's, baby bangs, padded headbands to name a few — so it's no surprise that closing out the year, right on cue, is tinsel hair. The trend resurfaced on Instagram recently when Kacey Musgraves rocked a high ponytail of iridescent gold, pink and purple tinsel strands at one of her recent gigs in New Orleans. And now, it's filling our feeds.
So how does it all work? Basically, you get a head full of highlights only, instead of four hours at the hairdresser and plenty of aftercare, you get small strands of tinsel tousled amongst your locks. The application is similar to your usual hair extension, a few sturdy strands are singled out and the tinsel is tied at the root, this process is continued until you've reached your desired amount of shimmer and shine.
Even if rocking a full ponytail like Kacey isn't your vibe, a few well placed strands can be the perfect pop for the festive season, we've rounded up all a selection of styles to use as a reference . . . You're welcome!
