How does it work?
Well you attach a small amount of tinsel pieces in your hair, and due the help of the sun rays your hair will seem like it is glowing and shinning. And in fact it is, thanks to the tinsel in your hair.
Some people go to salons with hair extensions to try this trendy look, some like to use tinsel extension or also an actual piece of tinsel that is normally used on a Christmas tree. Without any further a do, lets see how to make these tinsel extension work.
So the main color of her hair here is of blonde. She used different colors of tinsels to create a colorful outstanding look,, with the colors of purple and blue. The fun thing about tinsels are that they leave so much sparkle in the day light. It always look good and feel good to sparkle.
This lady here has a natural brunette hair color, but she also has a balayage going on. It would not have been possible to choose a yellow or brown tinsel to match both the colors. However a gold tinsel was necessary. Leaving the fact that it matched nicely it also has the effect of creating an unnatural but very cute sun kissed look.
This brunette lady has strokes of purple lights on the front of her hair. Therefore it was only necessary to add more purple to her hair with some tinsels. Therefore she used purple tinsels and didn’t that idea work just fabulously for her?
Her hair is natural light brown. This one didn’t style with gold tinsels but with orange ones. And they look in fact good, due the light shade of brown in her hair. Orange creates a sun kissed effect, on top were she has few tinsels. And the bottom part looks rather more cute and funky.
Lovely! You can also create pastel looks with tinsels. Her hair is styled with a balayage so she has a dark shade and a very light shade in her hair. the pastel tinsels weren’t going to match accordingly if she wears her hair down. This is due to the huge amount of contrast. However a very smart idea occur. She wore her hair in a pony tail, attached the pastel tinsels on just the ponytail, and hid the attachments and the hair elastic with a thick piece of her hair.
This red violet hair color can have a few options to choose from, such as purple since the color is red-violet, and also red. But here we have the light pink tinsels which goes great. And frankly it always create a bit more of a sun kissed look when the tinsel is not the same match as your hair. Meaning when it is lighter than your hair color, or a different shade that goes with your shade.
Blue hair is a lovely color to use tinsels on. It is such a mermaid color that tinsels will add more awesomeness to it. So here we can use the colors of silver, blue, turquoise or cyan. In this case the color cyan is used. And I got to say it looks Beautiful!
Pastel with pastel. Yes that can be acceptable too. If your hair is a pastel pink, just get a light pink tinsel and simply attach it. As one can see , really and truly one can play around and attach and experiment with as many colors as they like. As long as they made sense. Unless you want to be mistaken as the circus clown, by accidentally creating a tinsel wig.
This hairstyle has the colors of turquoise and blue. The main color is blue. Therefore, since the blue color is the main color and is the main attraction, the tinsel color was chosen to be turquoise Again, one need to make sure that there aren’t as many colors that don’t match, otherwise it will not look as good and attractive.
Lastly, here we have a colorful hair which carries the colors of, blue, purple and neon yellow. The main color is the blue color. Therefore not to add more colors than we already are seeing, the reasonable adjustment would be to add blue tinsels. In fact that is what we are seeing in the picture above.
Tinsel hair extensions can be very fun to do. And they are not permanent. Therefore even kids can do it. And do not worry if you don’t like your first attempt of the first try of your tinsel experience. You can un-attach the color you have done and try a different one. This will create no damage to your hair as it is only done by knotting the tinsel to a strand of your hair.
