How to Bedazzle Your Hair
Find Your Gems
First, you’re going to need a pack of self-adhesive rhinestones. “Self-adhesive would work best, as getting your gemstones to stay put is the trickiest part of the gemstone experimentation,” says Papanikolas. We recommend this set of rhinestone stickers from Amazon.
Attach the Bling
If you’re attempting to bedazzle long hair, listen up. Papanikolas suggests using an eyelash glue on the back of each rhinestone and “sandwiching the strands between two self-adhesive gemstones.” The sandwiching effect lets your hair flow freely while keeping your rhinestones secure.
If you’re looking to add some sparkle to your edges, start by slicking them down with a strong-hold gel, then applying your gems on top. Papanikolas recommends the Matrix StyleLink Super Fixer Strong Hold Gel. If you need help placing your gems, try using a pair of tweezers or a rhinestone dotting tool.
Set With Hairspray
To seal in your glam, don’t forget to finish with a mist of hairspray. The L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray is a classic for making any hairstyle last through wherever the night takes you.
