Hair Flairs - Pro Hair Tinsel

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
Some times it seems like I'm always the last one to get in on a new trend.  A friend's daughter was over recently and she had sparkling accents in her hair which she received at a local hair salon. Of course, my girls loved it and wanted to have it accents too.   So when I was asked to try out Hair Flairs - Pro Hair Tinsel, I was happy to oblige.

I received a package of the sparkling pink and sparkling gold to try out.  My girls were very excited and I think the hardest part of putting it in was getting them to hold still.  Still it was easy.  The packaging includes step by step directions with photos to help you figure it out and you can even watch a video on their website.  

Hair Tinsel simply ties into your hair.  You can shampoo, blow dry and style your hair, even using a curling iron or flat iron up to 400F.  You do need to take a little extra care when brushing though so as not to pull the strands out.  The strands can last from 1 to 6 weeks depending on how experienced the person is who ties them in.  The more you practice with it the easier it gets and the better you get at it. I think I botched the first tie as I didn't get it tied close enough to the hair line but even so it still lasted in my daughter's hair for around 4 days.  When I went to do my oldest daughter, I found I had figured out the knack of tying it close to the scalp.  The girls loved the effect. If you are wanting to do your own hair, it is easier if you have someone to help you. It's not impossible to do it on your own, but it may be awkward.

This is not just for kids though. Many women don't want to damage their hair with all the harsh chemicals that are in hair dyes but would still like to add some oomph to their style. Hair Flairs - Pro Hair Tinsel is a great alternative.  Sublte enough to wear every day or also great for special occasions like proms, formal dances, girl's night out, weddings etc.  

Hair Flairs - Pro Hair Tinsel retails around $12.00 a package.  There is a lot of tinsel in the packaging and as you only use 5 for accent or 10 for a full hairstyle, the tinsel goes a long way.

Thank you to Hair Flairs - Pro Hair Tinsel for the opportunity to try this really fun product!
