Glitter parting tutorial in 3 easy steps


Prep hair.

Generously apply VO5 Tame & Shine Spray, this lightweight spray tames flyaways, adds shine and will help protect your hair against heat damage.

Blow-dry hair and divide it into sections, before starting to create waves using a medium-sized curling wand. Allow your waves to cool before gently running your fingers through your hair for a more natural tousled finish.

Afterward, use the tip of a comb to give your hair a cool festival-inspired zigzag parting.


Create braids.

When your strands are completely dry, begin a 3-strand braid at the front of your hair – either side of your parting, securing with a clear hairband.


Final look.

For the final touch, spritz your zigzag parting with the VO5 Fixing Spray For Glitter, this will help keep your hair in place all day, without stickiness or flaking. 

Finally, carefully sprinkle one of the biodegradable VO5 coloured glitters onto your parting for a rebellious, rockstar finish. 

If it’s Sophie’s look you want to emulate, we suggest going for the VO5 Wicked Violet Hair Glitter, but the fun doesn’t need to stop there, as VO5 offer 5 other colour options too.

And there you have it, one of the biggest hair trends complete in 3 simple steps. Summer, here we come!
