How to Install Hair Tinsel To Sparkle For Any Occasion

Add some sizzle and sparkle to your locks with gorgeous hair tinsel! In this fun and easy tutorial, we'll guide you through the process of installing hair tinsel in two ways: using snap clips and adding them onto your clip-ins. So let's dive in and learn how to jazz up your hair with delightful tinsel strands!

Hair Tinsel Prep

Step 1: Prepare your natural hair

    Start with freshly washed and dried hair to ensure a smooth canvas. Comb through your hair to remove any knots or tangles. If needed, apply a light layer of your preferred styling product such as texturizers or pomades to help hold the tinsel in place.

    Step 2: Choose the placement of your tinsel strands

    Now it's time to decide where you want the tinsel to be installed. Whether you're aiming for full-on glam or subtle glitz, placement matters. Your tinsel can be placed all over your head, around your face, or on specific hair sections. Consider your hairstyle choices when selecting the tinsel placement, as you'll want the strands to show off when you wear your hair up or down.
