It’s just about Thanksgiving, but let’s be real. After that last bite of pie has been devoured, we’re immediately in Christmas mode. And what’s the best part of the holiday season? The parties, of course. A holiday party allows for a certain kind of added luxe to a look: sequins, velvet, lace, it’s all fair game. But what sort of hairstyle is glam enough to keep up with the rest of the ensemble? Well, folks, ponder that question no more. Celeb hairstylist Kristin Ess and her model Lucy Hale (of Pretty Little Liars) have given us an ideal solution: hair tattoos.
Hair tattoos aren’t a totally new idea. After we spotted it on Pinterest, we gave it a try back in May. It didn’t work out so well for us then, but after watching the short tutorial Kristin and Lucy created with Teen Vogue, we might just have to try again.
In the video, Kristin uses plain old temporary tattoos and applies them close to the root of Lucy’s hair. The trick here is to apply them to a place that won’t budge. Because hair stenciling and hair tattoos are two very different things, believe it or not.
Kristin sprays the hair before applying and again after. This particular look would really only take about 10 minutes to complete. Have we just discovered our first holiday hair hack of the season? Why yes, it seems we have.
