Get In The Festive Spirit With The Tinsel Hair Trend

"Tinsel" hair has officially landed for the holidays, and we love it more than we loved our first Malibu Barbie. If you're envisaging hairbands adorned with some festive foliage, then don't panic - nothing could make that seasonal trend fashionable. Tinsel hair makes use of some incredible color to give off the effect that it's shiny and festive - just like the stuff you deck the halls with. What could be wrong about that?

The trend is the work of Kate Reid, the global design director for Coulour.Me by Kevin Murphy, and it's not as unachievable as you might first think - although if you're a brunette you may be out of luck. This festive coloration works on blonde hues - the lighter the better. Reid says that the key to this perfect festive mop is merging shade and placing them anywhere in the hair that embraces natural shine and highlights. What colors you choose are essentially up to you, but some of our favorite looks incorporate metallic pinks, blues, and silvers to really hype up the holiday vibe.

A lot of people tend to dye their hair darker for winter, so why not stand out from the crowd and try this one on for size? If you're planning on giving it a go then ask your hairdresser for a reflective colour that enchances the light and gives your hair a more natural shine, says Reid, plus encorporating some metallic tones. If you go in demanding tinsel hair, the chances are you'll come out looking like the angel in your second grade nativity play, and frankly, that's a look best left in the '90s. It might be a trend, but it might take a little explaing before you're given exactly what you want - but rest assured, the results will be worth it.
