The reason I decided to review Bling Strands is because I can’t resist the allure of all things sparkly. Bling Strands are colorful, delicate metallic fibers that you tie into your hair to add a glittery highlight. The best part about this simple hair accessory is that it’s temporary and you don’t have to use any glues or adhesives. Also, these strands are non-toxic, non-flammable and can be washed, dried, flat-ironed and curled (up to 400 degrees).
Beyonce popularized this flirty, sparkly hair trend when she rocked her blingitude at this year’s Grammy Award Ceremony. She certainly caught my attention ’cause I was like “I need me some hair sparklies!”
There are 30 fun colors to choose from (naturals, precious metals, brights and pastels). How much are these glittery babies?
It’s $6.50 for 18 inch strands (pack of 25) and $8.95 for 36 inch strands (pack of 25). This is an awesome deal considering most salon hair stylists will charge you $2 a strand.
Basically you tie a single Bling Strand to one or two strands of hair and voila! You’re done! I thought about make a video entry on this but I thought I’d let the experts show you how it’s properly done.
