Glitter, always ✨

We love all things glitter, especially hair glitter. Whether it's for a gig, the holidays, a night out, or just because you want to, we love adding a little bit of sparkle to our outfits. ✨

And fingers crossed, this year, we'll actually be celebrating New Year (and Christmas), so we definitely want to dress up and go out-out.

There are lots of different glitter hair trends - we all remember glitter roots from 2015 (and then again in 2019), the cute fishtail braid glitter and the dipped ombré look. There are SO many ways to shimmer up your hair.

As it turns out, TikTok loves glitter too, and one girl has made glitter ALL the rage after spritzing silver glitter hairspray all over her body right before heading out the door. Hairspray turned body spray? Iconic - we know. Watch the viral video below:

I mean, who doesn't want to look like that on a night out? To help you achieve the TikTok-worthy, glam look, we've found the best glitter sprays that money can buy. And trust us - you won't regret it.

Can I use hair glitter for my body and face?

It depends on the type of glitter you choose, but usually, you can. Most glitter products are versatile and multipurpose, they can typically be applied on your face, body and hair - which really helps tie the whole look together. If you're not sure if your hair glitter can be used elsewhere, make sure to read the description and label, as that will say what it can be used for and if it's safe to be used on your skin.
