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.”

This gorgeous KiraKira-esque hairstyle comes just in time to ring in the new year. Keep scrolling to see some of our festive favorites.
