The trendiest hair accessory yet

#HairTrend: Metallic hair tattoos

While metallic temporary tattoos aren’t exceptionally new in the scene, (evidence being Coachella where plenty of celebs from Alessandro Ambrosio to Vanessa Hudgens sported “flash tattoos”), the latest trend now that’s hitting the hair-accessory scene is hair tattoos—similar in appearance as foil tattoos but, as you probably already know, it’s worn over your hair. A notable young social media-lite who made it to the #trending page thanks to this glittery coiffure is none other than Kylie Jenner, who had a thin metallic strip of arrow-like motifs lined in her hair, spotted here.

Best part about this hair accessory? It’s perhaps the quickest and easiest way to glam up your tresses for a night out hitting the town. You can find these at Scünci here, and all you have to do is apply the tattoo face down on your hair (preferably straight hair so the tattoo will not distort), dab it with a wet cotton ball, and remove the piece of paper. And there you have it—Christmas/New Year’s Eve-rocking locks that are statement-making as they are absolutely gold.
