Easy Hair Tutorial
To achieve mess-free glitter roots you will need gel, a brush, a pot and glitter. Our glitter tattoo kits can be used for all that glitz. Whereas, a colouring brush is a handy way to get even application.
One way to create glitter hair is by applying gel and sprinkling on those sparkles. This, however, can be messy and waste plenty of the good stuff.
Instead, adding some glitter to a pot and mixing in some gel can give a quicker, cleaner finish. Just paint it on using your brush and voila!
Popular hairstyles to match this look are spacer buns, bunches and plaits. Breaking out the hand-mirror can help to precisely dab the rear parting(s).
The gel will harden the hair too so putting it up or pinning it back is hassle free. It also shows it off.
It’s also fashionable to match an unnatural hair colour with glitter roots for an entirely modern hairstyle. As you can see, pink and grey work wonderfully but it shines on every hair colour.
A more subtle glitter hair idea is replacing gel with wax and brushing through. The night sky motif allows you to have your hair down. It’s also ideal for any event. FYI these hair tutorials can be used to create a glitter beard too.
