You can’t beat sparkly unicorn hair!
As a lover of all things glittery, when I saw a post on Lipstick Lashes And Locks Instagram page saying they were going to start doing hair dazzle, I was pretty excited!
With my next appointment booked in I definitely wanted some sparkle put in my hair. There was a selection of colours but being a redhead I thought the obvious colour choice was gold, thinking it would go well with the warm tone of my hair. After my hair had been cut and dried Tina got to work on transforming my usual red mop into Unicorn hair! She tied the hair dazzle into a very small section of my hair just under the top layer near my parting. To make sure they didn’t slide out of my freshly washed hair she put in a wee bit of texturising powder on before tying them in.
I honestly loved it! With just a few strands added it gave a subtle glitter to my hair and looked amazing when it caught the light.
Tina had advised they can last up to a week, and would be easily taken out by just sliding them out your hair. And, even better, you can still use your hairdryer and straighteners as they aren’t ruined by heat.
Mine lasted around five days, until I next washed my hair and despite being really gentle when I washed it one strand came out. I think this might have partly been down to my hair going really soft because I used conditioner. The rest of the strands came out the following day. One naturally and then I took the rest out myself. They did come out really easily, and without taking any of my hair with it.
I would like to note that five days is normally a bit longer than I would go without washing my hair but I found that because I had the dazzle in I wasn’t touching my hair as much so the roots weren’t getting greasy. Meaning it didn’t really look like five days without washing!
As I suspected, once the dazzle was out my normal hair didn’t quite cut it for a few days! I will definitely be wanting more when I go back for my next hair cut.
If you live in or near Edinburgh and fancy a bit of unicorn hair get yourself booked into Lipstick Lashes And Locks! The hair dazzle would be perfect for the festive season and I think they’re getting more colours in soon. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a copper colour!
What are your thoughts on hair dazzle, would you get some?
