Glitter Hair - Home & Family

DIY Glitter Hair Trends
Celebrity stylist Robby LaRiviere joins the show to showcase the hottest hair trend of 2015! Purchase small packs of glitter and blend the colors together. Add some soft hair gel and blend with a tinting paintbrush. Robby demonstrates by painting the glitter mixture onstage with Lily as his model! It creates a fun and dynamic look and it was very easy to achieve. It is easy to wash out as well. He then shows a more subtle look on Gabby by painting on golds and rose that are closer to her natural hair color. He shows off other hair products include Glitter clip-ins for $4-$6 and Lea Journo Lumiere Spray.

To make the glitter you will need:

1. Empty Pots (with lids). Re-use old Manic Panic hair dye pots.

2. Regular Craft Glitter. Buy tubes of glitter in a multi-pack from the local $2 shop.
3. Classic Hair Gel. Not the kind that goes flakey. It needs to dry hard. Use Fudge Urban Coconut Rush Power Gel. Cost about $4.

4. Tint Brushes. A tint brush is ideal, but any wide paint brush will also work. You will need one brush per color if you don’t want to keep rinsing your brush.
