Tinsel Extensions for the Holiday Season

Fountain of 30

December 5, 2012 • Beauty, Fashion Blog, Holiday

Looking for a hair accessory to spice up your look for the holidays? Tinsel hair extensions might be the perfect solution. The idea may sound insane and bring you back to unwanted drunken holiday party memories, but backed by celebs like Beyonce, the look can be fabulous and sassy. Tinsel extensions can add a subtle touch of sparkle to any holiday hair do. Vogue’s blogger Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis shares her tinsel experience with co-owner of the Cocoro Salon, hairstylist Mako Iijima.

Depending on the quantity, color, and lighting, the tinsel can be subtle rather than dramatic. The strands can also last for up to two months through all of the holiday parties and styling (washing, flat-ironing, curling). At the Cocoro Salon on the Lower East Side, six strands go for only $20 and can be easily removed at home if desired. For the days were tinsel just might be overdoing it, a simple bun or braid will hide the strands.
