Hot holiday hair idea - try tinsel

Posted December 19, 2011

Tinsel isn't only for your Christmas tree. A salon in north Raleigh is offering hair tinsel to help give your holiday hair a little sparkle. 

The color experts at DS Parada, 6520 Falls of Neuse Road, have hair tinsel in a variety of colors, including blue, red, silver, gold and purple. Strands are $5 and are long enough to go on both sides of your head.  hair tinsel Raleigh salon offers hair tinsel

The tinsel can be curled, flat ironed, washed and should stay in for at least two weeks, salon owner Don Stacy said. (I got a few for the WRAL Holiday party over the weekend, and they are still in.)

It takes about 10 minutes to put the tinsel in - stylists tie it in at the root of the hair. I call it a "tinsel weave." 

The salon said anyone wanting some tinsel should give them a call at 919-790-1707.

    That's why I opted for gold instead. Didn't want any silver going on in my hair!

    This is a pretty cool idea. But I'd have to get anything but silver since that's also what I 'grow' year round :)

    Darn - wish I wasn't late to the party on this one... I'm already 4 holiday parties in for the season and would've totally done this!

    I don't need this tinsel, I have gray hair.
