My stylist loves this glitter hairspray from the Sexy Hair folks because it holds and styles without leaving any unnecessary gunk or residue on her genius stylings. Bling It On does precisely what it says it will do – add a nice touch of bling and a medium hold to your hair in a subtle amethyst or glittery gold tone. Pick it up at Walmart!
If you have a special occasion coming up or want to spend a blinged-out day at the beach or the apple orchard, Jerome Russell’s hair glitter spray is the choice for it-girls who want glitter that lasts all day and then some. Die-hard fans wish the bottle had more bling for the buck – there are only about two uses at most in each. But remember, your bling lives forever on the ‘gram. Order one online on Amazon!
We love this hair and body glitter even though it’s intended for the middle-school set. It’s paediatrician-approved and won’t do anything drastic or unpleasant to your skin or hair. It’s also water-based, so it will wash right off when you get home or when you’re over all the sparkle. Best of all, it’s a one-stop-shop, apply it in your hair, on your body, and even just above your brow bone for all the sparkle you could possibly want. You can test out one of the two colors available at Amazon!
It’s got a really long name but an equally long list of fans who swear by this glitter hairspray and have worn it everywhere from nightclubs to backyard barbecues and local coffee shops. The glitter spray puts a fine mist of glitter into your hair and onto your body if you’re in the mood and isn’t crunchy or tacky after it’s applied. It washes out quickly and easily.
IGK says its color-safe, vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and provides some sun protection – what else do you need? It’s also a buildable formula, meaning that you can apply as many layers as to achieve your desired level of shimmer. Order it from Verishop!
So maybe the product name is a little silly, but don’t count out this little jar of glitter hair magic. We, dark-haired girls, will love applying a little bit onto our dark locks for an other-worldly silvery-blue holographic effect. Male and female beauty influencers also rave about it as a makeup highlighter applied just above the brow bone for a sparkly, party-ready look. Grab a jar on Amazon!
When you’re short on time, short on money, and in desperate need of a little glitter bling, this is the best glitter hairspray for you. It may go on a little bit chunkier than some other brands, but it will still give you the shiny, glitter hair you’re looking for. Pick it up at Walmart!
Honestly, what doesn’t this hair glitter spray do for your hair? It brightens up both light and dark hair for any party or special occasion, and it has argan oil to leave curly-haired girls with soft, behaving tresses. It’s safe for keratin, and Brazilian-treated hair, contains no sulfates, parabens, or phthalates, and is vegan and cruelty-free. It’s available online only from Ulta.
Unlike most hair glitter sprays, this one comes in a good-sized pouch that holds enough glitter to cover you from head to toe. We like the idea of picking one up and passing it around to friends getting ready for a big day or night out. The glitter will stay put in your hair or on your shoulders until you’re ready to wash it off. Keep one on hand for yourself and your crew! It’s available on Amazon.
I would keep a stick of this IGK hair glitter in every room in my home for a quick spritz of glitter that doesn’t demand a lot of tools, instructions, or even a mirror. For a shot of shimmery goodness, just swipe the glitter hair stick into your hair on your bangs, around the roots, the wisps of hair around your face, or anywhere you’d like. Keep a tube in your bag for impromptu touch-ups and another at your desk to add sparkle to your next Zoom call. It’s available from Walmart.
Rock the Locks is a line of hair care products made just for kids – no harsh chemicals, no sulfates, and a sweet sugar cookie scent. This natural hair glitter spray is perfect for all the stylish kids in your life, and it’s pink with silver. Buy it on Amazon!
