Glitter hair extensions are a real hidden gem. These thin glitter strands are weaved into two or three strands of your hair, interspersed all over to create a shimmery effect. It works for anyone, on any style or hair length.

It’s low on commitment. The extensions, 10 to 30 of them, cost between $30 and $75, depending on the salon. It takes 25 minutes, after which, the extensions are cut to your hair length.

The strands come in a rainbow of colours, from gold to pink and more, and are chemical-free and heat-resistant. You can style your hair and wash it normally – just don’t tug too hard. The extensions last four to six weeks, then become loose and fall out. You can redo them at the salon or snip them off on your own.
