How to Create Glitter Hair for The Holidays

Finished look.

Use a blowdryer on a cool setting to allow the gel to dry or air-dry your hair. Set the look with a hairspray that imparts a high shine and a flexible hold to your style like Dove Strength and Shine Flexible Hold HairsprayIf you’re wearing an updo hairstyle that doesn’t require lots of movement stick to a hairspary like TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray instead. Use a paddle brush like Nexxus Ibiza CX2 to detangle and smoothen the lengths, and off you go!
