"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?

TIPS to FAST FLAWLESS BLONDES 1️⃣ Start in the darkest area. 2️⃣ 6% will get you as light as 12% but the condition is better, can take a little longer. 3️⃣ Take thin sections and lay it flat, no twirling, no bent hair apply the lightener liberally just one inch off the scalp 4️⃣ Each section is see through and wrapped in foil to keep it warm. 5️⃣ don’t be afraid of leaving it on 6️⃣ once you have finished application go back and apply the roots 7️⃣ check the ends and reapply to the ends if needed even with 3% 8️⃣ develop 9️⃣ wash or restore then refine / tone or add pastel 🎉 thanks @marshagm for helping create this perfect blonde base #bestblonde #bleach #pastel #haireducation #salon #hairfashionstyler #katereid #kevinmurphy
PREVIOUSLY: COLD BREW HAIR TREND SET TO BECOME FALL STAPLE
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.
Metallic and pastel shades can be a little tricky to keep up, so if you're hoping to avoid regular salon visits then try using Kevin Murphy Colouring Angels refresh to keep your hair looking fresh and vibrant all the live long day. You're welcome.
