Perfect for the holiday season including New Year’s Eve, a glitter parting is an effective way to inject festive spirit into your look. From braids and buns to down-styled waves or sleekness, it’s a fun nod to the ’90s and a great youthful touch to most any parted hairstyle. So, will you dare to dabble in this sparkly trend?

There are several effective ways to create a glitter-filled look but we’ve opted for these two suggestions to help you go glam!

Hairspray Technique

Step 1

The most important part of this style is to ensure your parting is perfect. Opt for a comb with a thin end to divide hair evenly. For extra stay and fewer flyaways, try the look on hair that hasn’t been washed that day.

Step 2

With your hairstyle firmly secured, it’s time to get creative. Begin by spraying a base coat of wash-out color to your roots. You want the spray to be focused on the parting line so an old towel will come in handy.

Step 3

A good quality hairspray will be necessary here as it needs to keep the style in place but also secure the glitter. Generously spray the hair and while it is still wet apply a glitter powder to the roots. For a cleaner finish, use a towel over your face.

Step 4

For added effect, strategically place larger sequins to the wet hairspray base. Those placed slightly away from the face will have more longevity. Mix colors and texture, the bolder the better.
