Fairy hair

Give your child a magical experience of creating their own special look with sparkle and glamour!



Fairy hair is also called hair tinsel, glitter strands, shimmers, sparkle strands, or silk extensions. It comes in a myriad of vibrant colors and is tied into the hair to add sparkle and bling. Think of it as hair jewelry!

A fairy hair strand of your choice is tied to a single hair with a special knot so that it becomes just like another hair strand and can be treated just like your own hair. You can brush it, wash it, blow dry it, flat iron it, curl it and it will even withstand dying, bleaching, and perming!

Your hair must be about 3 inches in order for fairy hair to be tied in well. As long as your hair is long enough, fairy hair can be applied to many different kinds of hair. Please discuss with me any concerns you may have about your particular texture or type of hair.

Fairy hair is typically tied and placed on the top layers of your hair so that it is most visible. But it can also be placed under your layers or at the base of your head in order to create a more “peek-a-boo” effect at the hair ends. You can discuss your wishes at your sparkle session.

Fairy hair lasts as long as the hair strand it’s tied to stays attached to your scalp. It can last 2 to 6 weeks and even longer depending on how fast you shed your hair and your daily styling routine.

I recommend being gentle when you brush, not using a fine tooth comb, and not using heat over 400 degrees.
