What Is Fairy Hair?

Made out of synthetic silk, Fairy Hair are strands of tinsel that can be attached to the hair as colorful and shimmering extensions or temporary highlights. It’s a great alternative for anyone who wants to bring color into their hair without damage.

How is Fairy Hair Applied?

Fairy Hair can be applied in a number of ways. It’s usually tied onto a few strands of hair, however we can use microbeads to attach them to the hair as well. Application is quick, simple and painless, taking only about 15 to 20 minutes.

Are There Any Risks?

Fairy Hair is safe for everyone! Fairy hair falls out naturally with your own strands, so it isn’t harmful to your hair one bit! They are made out of silk and are even safe to use with heat.
