Get Stuff We Love
Confetti hair is the latest trend taking over the manes of people across social media, particularly on Instagram.
Not only does confetti hair create a gorgeous, sparkly ‘do, but like glitter hair, it’s all temporary, making it the perfect way to accessorize an outfit for a holiday soiree or just a fun night on the town. While glitter roots are slightly harder to get rid of because of the very fine, sparkly particles, confetti hair can literally just be combed or washed out in minutes.
Though people are donning the look for the holidays, it actually debuted on the catwalk in September during London's 2016 Spring/Summer Fashion Week, when U.K.-based designer Ashish Gupta showcased his looks on models — both male and female — whose hair and features were dusted with confetti.
Although the application of confetti varies, from the amount used to the size of the particles — sometimes taking it to an art from — the greatest amount of confetti is typically placed on the top of the head at the roots. The rest of the confetti is sprinkled throughout the hair creating an ombre-like effect with the ends completely bare.
And creating your own head of confetti is surprisingly easy. All you need to do is apply hairspray and sprinkle confetti on top in a freehand manner, according to an article on Mane Addicts who interviewed the hairstylist behind confetti hair, Ali Pirzadeh.
Now that the holiday season is here and everyone is trying to get their merry on, it may be the perfect time of year to give this trend a try.
