It seemed that the recent year felt like a Hunger Games pursuit of which hair colour will be the coolest and most striking way to spice up one’s look. But this hair trend made us stop in our tracks. We knew for sure that this beats any colour we put on our hair, hands down.
How to achieve the look:
Before you deem glittery roots strictly appropriate for dance recitals or next year’s ‘90s-themed Halloween party, the trend urges you to reconsider. The trick to its glittery goodness is not all about dunking a load of sparkle onto your head. It’s a precise application directly on the roots and spreading the glitter no more than an inch away from your part.
Step 1: Mix a chunky style of glitter of your choice with a clear hair gel like to give it some stick.
Step 2: Use a small brush (a somewhat sturdier one, such as an old foundation brush) to spread the glitter.
Step 3: Increase the dynamism even further by using your fingertips to slowly sprinkle on more glitter in places that feel sparse, or try adding decorative stars or sparkly hearts—the exact kind you’d find at an arts and crafts store.

While this would definitely be a fun trend to try for the holidays, we’re not convinced it’s something worth rocking on a regular basis. Everyone would know that it is not easy cleaning up tiny particles that are probably going to stick around even after a few washes.
But if that’s not holding you back, seize the opportunity to turn heads with this look during a special occasion. It looks especially adorable when paired with a funky hairstyle, our favs are the space buns!
