"How to" Instructional video is taken from YouTube & are a guide only. Products whilst similar, are not identical.



Step 1: Buy your Tinsel

Purchase salon quality hair tinsel. Not all hair tinsel can withstand the heat from curling irons, flat irons, and blow driers so it important to purchase a quality product. If you want a subtle effect choose a color close to your own. If you want a dramatic look, choose a more contrasting colour.

Step 2: Preparation

Select a strand of hair tinsel and fold it in half creating a small loop.

Step 3: Placement

Decide where you want to put the strand. Tying the hair tinsel slightly off your part will allow the hair tinsel to be seen while hiding the tiny knot used to tie it in. Select 3 or 4 hairs at your chosen location.

Step 4: Attach

Wrap the hair tinsel loop around the hair and pull the ends of the hair tinsel through the loop (a simple slip knot).

Pull the ends of the hair tinsel and the selected hairs so that the knot is tight on the scalp.

Step 5: Tie

Tie the selected hairs and the hair tinsel together using a square knot. Make sure the knot is tight on the scalp.

Step 6: Secure

Tie 3 or 4 more square knots so that the knot is secure and doesn't slide.


After your hair tinsel has been properly tied it can be treated as ordinary hair. It can be washed, blow dried, curled, and flat ironed( 150c). However, care should be taken when brushing to avoid directly pulling on the knot.

If you want to remove your hair tinsel, grasp the knot firmly and slide it out of your hair.

When correctly tied and maintained
your hair tinsel can last for weeks!
