Hair glitter is a great way to glam up your look, whatever the event. But what’s the best way to wear it, and how easy is it to remove? Here’s your guide to all things hair glitter.
Best Times to Wear Hair Glitter
Hair glitter isn’t just for festivals. It can be used in your hair to complement anything from prom hair to a summer party look. You can use it as subtly or vibrantly as you like, depending on the result you’re trying to achieve. Not everyone wants rainbow coloured locks, so you can also use glitter tones similar to your hair colour, which glisten in the light. If you’ve coloured your hair, you could even find a matching glitter to add a bit of sparkle to your tresses when heading to a celebration.
How Do You Use Glitter in Your Hair?
This is the fun part. There are lots of different ways you can use hair glitter, including in updos, ponytails, hair buns, through the lengths, fringes and side plaits. However, one of the most popular styles is to create glitter roots. Start by creating your parting. Then apply the glitter in layers so that you can build it up in stages to achieve your desired level of sparkle and colour placement. Some people like just a little bit of glitz added, whereas others go all out and want their glitter parting to be the focal point of their look. Use hairspray or a fixing spray for glitter to ensure it lasts. Some people also like to add sequins and stars for an ultra-party look.
Choosing Your Colours
Whether you’re looking to embrace your inner unicorn or reflect a party theme, there’s almost every shade of hair glitter available. Think about the event you’re going to and some of the colours which are going to look amazing. For example, if you’re heading to a Christmas party, you could choose reds and greens for a bit of fun, or shimmer with silvers and golds. Or if you’re heading to a UK festival, why not try union jack colours or multicoloured roots. There isn’t a right or wrong answer.
How to Remove Hair Glitter
As much as we adore the hair glitter craze, getting every last fleck out can be a challenge. Start by shaking your hair gently outside to remove what you can – this will make it easier when it comes to washing. You could also use a paper towel saturated with hairspray to blot along your parting to remove some of the bulk. Don’t use a hairbrush or the glitter will stick to it, transferring back to your locks when you next use it. Loosen the remaining glitter with some hair oil, gently massaging it into the area and let it soak for a few minutes. You can then shampoo as normal. If you want to repair post festival hair, use a deep conditioning treatment, which you can also pop into the salon for.
