We love glitter so much that we’re dusting a half-up hairstyle with the sparkly stuff! Feel free to get creative with the idea; maybe your braids are wrapped into a bun or finagled into a classic milkmaid braid or braided crown. It’s your New Year’s — make it marvelous!
What You Need:
Step One: Curl your hair to create some texture and body. Remember: the larger the barrel, the thicker the waves.
Step Two: Take a 1-inch section of hair on one side of your head and create a standard three-strand braid. Secure the end with a clear elastic.
Step Three: Spray the braid liberally with hairspray.
Step Four: Quickly, before the hairspray dries, apply your loose glitter to the braid. This gets a little messy, so either stand over the sink or outside. It’s also a good idea to wear an old shirt that you can change out of.
Step Five: To keep the glitter in place, spray the braid with hairspray one last time. Repeat steps two through five on the other side of your head.
Step Six: Drape one braid across the back of your head and secure with two crossed bobby pins. Repeat with the other braid, making sure to tuck the ends underneath each other.
