B E A U T Y / NYE Hair: Slicked Back Glitter

This is what I'm planning to do with my hair on the last night of 2013 to celebrate and say goodbye to this fantastic year. It's still unsure what I'll be wearing on NYE, but I can already foresee that it will be something basic and plain. Instead of adding accessories, I like to experiment with cosmetics instead. Doesn't mean it requires much time (if only we had more time), special skill or many products; just one simple, radical plan; like covering every single hair in sparkles! I love to put tacky, cheap things in a different context.

Here's what I did
1/ Apply a big blob of gel on your finger tips and run it through the roots of your hair. Repeat until the front and top part of your hair are looking evenly 'wet'.
2/ Comb your hair to the back, distributing the gel even more.
3/ With a soft brush smooth out the hair from front to back with long strokes and put it into a low ponytail.
4/ Let it dry for a couple of minutes.
5/ Take out the hair tie. I love how the low ponytail creates a wave in the back and gives this hairdo a lot of shape. But you could also straighten it out at this point.
6/ The party you've been waiting for. Spray the glitter all over!

It was close to impossible to capture the millions of sparkles in a photograph, some of it became visible with a flash. But trust me, this is something that must be tried and seen in real life, I'm not exaggerating when I tell you it is about ten times more sparkly.

and what does it do to the face? i mean.. does it shape your face beautifully? or do i need to somehow pump up the volume? could you please show/ thank you


@ Jack and your body

Actually it is a very clean, fresh look from the front as all the hair is pulled back.

I'm so trying this for new years! I wonder if it will work on dark hair as well as light hair? I'm thinking bright pink & gold sparkles to be able to stand out on my hair.

Wow, gorgeous! xx

To be honest, I sort of doubt this would actually look nice (like you're not a 12 year old or a tacky Barbie) on hair that is not silver like yours. I've seen blonde girls outside of nightclubs with sparkles in their hair a handful of times and let me tell you, it does not look good!

That being said, it looks really cool on you.


At Anya; Thank you, though I must disagree, in the right context everything can be beautiful. I'm sure it would look absolutely epic on smooth jet black hair too

Wat een origineel idee! En het staat ook nog eens super bij jouw haarkleur. Met zulk haar heb je verder geen opsmuk meer nodig...

this looks great on you!

I'd look stupid with such a modern do I think.

Ivania this is so cool, i think i am going to steal your idea hee hee. I'll be sure to tell anyone who asks that i saw it on your blog. I have NO IDEA what to wear NYE and i got invited to an event of course I didn't plan for it, so i may just pick up this hairspray and wear all black, i have dark hair so i think it may work well! thank you for all these great ideas you post so freely xo
