How do you use hair tinsel to add colour and style to your hair?

Hair tinsel is a type of hair accessory that can be used to add colour, dynamism and style to your hair. Tinsel is made from a variety of materials, including metallic fibres, synthetic fibres, and even real hair. The colours can add depth, sparkles, and just plain pazzazz to the hair. Because you are only applying a handful of tinsels to your hair you can be extra courageous when it comes to colour and tones. Tinsel can be attached to the hair using a variety of methods, including braiding, weaving, and tying.

What are the benefits of using hair tinsel over other methods of adding colour and style to your hair?

The awesome thing about hair tinsel is that it is super low maintenance, just insert and forget. Moreover, it can be used to add temporary colour to your hair without the use of dyes or bleaches. Unlike other methods, such as hair dye or highlights, hair tinsel does not require any chemicals or heat to apply. As a result, it is much gentler on the hair and scalp, and can be easily removed when you are ready to change your look. 

How long will the colour last in my hair if I use hair tinsel, and how do I remove it when I'm done with it?

The length of time that the colour will last depends on a number of factors, including the type of hair tinsel you use and how often you wash your hair. Generally speaking, the tinsel will last for up to six weeks. When you're ready to remove the tinsel, simply clip/pop it out of your hair. If you have any stray strands, you can use a pair of scissors to snip them off.
