It is not fairy dust, even though it looks like it. Hair tinsel is a thin, lightweight ribbon that you knot into your hair part. The material is heat-resistant, meaning you can continue using a blow dryer, curling iron, or other styling tool. And you can keep your shampoo routine, too.

Hair tinsel, which comes in rainbow and different metallic shades, lasts two months before eventually falling out. If you need to go to some formal occasion where your hair shimmer will not be appreciated, they can be pulled out gently or hidden in an up-do. 

You don’t have to be a celebrity to pull this trend off. You can buy the glitz extensions for relatively cheap prices in a variety of different colors, and use it to add some flair to your tresses. But here are some celebrity that started it all: 


1. Beyoncé 

Who runs the world? Duh… Beyoncé does. Who doesn’t like The Queen B? We know no one like that…

From Destiny’s Child to solo stardom and motherhood, Beyoncé’s style has changed drastically, for the better. One of the best accessories she has ever worn is hair tinsel. She makes it high-fashion, right? Beyoncé makes glittery hair so Vogue. 


2. Ke$ha

Pop star we all know, Ke$ha, has also been seen wearing the glittery strands in her hair. She is very well known for her laid-back and messy but still sexy hairstyles, and the strands of glitter go perfectly with that.

3. Adrienne Maloof 

Although her drama-free life doesn’t get too much attention on Bravo’s Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Adrienne Maloof’s fashion style is always a show-stopper. Recently, she wore the hair-glitter accessory that got a lot of attention. The star had hair tinsel extensions added to her blonde lock.
