Yay Or Nay: Tinsel Hair Edition
The time has come for us to talk about tinsel hair. Yes, as in strands of tinsel you wear in your hair to give it a pop of shimmer. It’s a thing people do.
Well, some of us might still lean more towards the “it’s tacky and should only be worn in wigs during New Years Eve” side. However, I’m willing to put my objective hat on and take a look at some Instagram posts to see if my opinion can be swayed.
So without further ado, let’s begin.
Alright, even I have to admit, with her pink hair and the iridescent blue/purple tinsel; the whole thing looks pretty magical. You can actually take a look at her tutorial of this look in which she pretty much creates tinsel extensions for a super easy application. Way better than putting on each strand individually.
Here’s a more common take on tinsel hair on natural hair color. If you have dark hair and really want the tinsel to pop but still look somewhat natural, try these golden-hued ones; it’ll look like you have shimmery highlights!
Or if you just don’t care about looking natural at all, (at the end of the day, you are putting tinsel on your hair) go for more vibrant colors!
So, it’s that time again. Tinsel hair, yay or nay? Well, after much consideration my answer has to be: both. To be honest, I still wouldn’t wear this look on a regular day but I do think it’d be perfect for events like a music festival or holiday party.
