A hair highlighting trend named "glitterage" combines the technique of balayage with glitter. The term is credited to Danielle Wade, a Denver-based hairstylist. She shared that she uses a Colortrak glitter brush to paint on the Major Moonshine glitter hair gel. To really show off the sparkly highlights, she styles hair into gorgeous beach waves.

When speaking with Allure, Wade explains that the glitter will come out of your hair in just one shampoo. She even recommends brushing some of it out prior to washing. "It IS glitter, so prepared to have it sparkle-ify your life."

#TrendAlert! Are you looking for a fun way to up your hair game for a holiday party or a music festival? If so, then #Glitterage (glitter balayage) may just be the new trend for you! Using the same technique you would to balayage hair, colorists all over Instagram are starting to add a little sparkle and glitz to hair color. Of course, it's only temporary (comes out when you wash your hair), but we think it's super fun for a special event! 📷: @juliamcdow
