If you believe in the mantra—’New year, new hair’, we’ve got an excellent idea for you. Rather than opting for a haircut or colour, why don’t you go for the sparkly new trend that’s been causing a lot of buzz lately?

Glitterage, a.k.a glitter balayage, is a technique of painting on sparkly highlights throughout your tresses. Every layer of hair gets a hand-painted coat of glitter to ensure that the shimmer stands out. From gold to blue, the colour range for this fad knows no limits.

To get the most out of this craze, it’s best to style your hair into loose, beachy waves to create movement and dimension. You can also opt for braids and buns to showcase the glitter.

Unfortunately, the sparkly finish is just temporary. Unlike dyes, the paste usually rinses out when you shampoo your locks. The good news here however, is that this does not cause any lasting damage to your precious mane.

Personally, we’re bookmarking this look for all the parties we have this year. After all, who doesn’t need a little sparkle in their life?
