Beauty Mythbuster: Can Flash Tattoos Double As Hair Tattoos?
The ideas that tumble out of the beauty blogosphere cover the full spectrum: everything from the ingenious to the weird to the really, really weird. For every post about fierce hair gems, there’s another one about — WTF — leg contouring.
You see, I’ve got a thing for gold. I love it in makeup, jewelry and clothes. When I first discovered bronzer, I decided I wanted to look like dipped-in-gold Bond Girl Jill Masterson in the film Goldfinger. I’ve been known to get a little aggressive with highlighter. So when I saw the twist that Ashna put on Kylie Jenner’s look, I knew I needed to try it out. Cool, creative and gold: How could I go wrong?
STEP 1: APPLY FLASH TATTOO
First, apply your flash tattoo to the part in your hair. I went for two afro puffs.
STEP 2: DAMPEN FLASH TATTOO
Wet your washcloth and use it to dampen your flash tattoo while gently pressing down.
STEP 3: SLOWLY PEEL OFF FLASH TATTOO
Slowly peel off your flash tattoo, making sure to check if the tattoo has stuck to your part.
Remember when I said, “How could I go wrong?” Yeah, famous last words. The flash tattoo didn’t really stick to my scalp and instead just looked gunky. I tried this out with three different brands of flash tattoos and still no luck. Looks like this one doesn’t quite live up to the hype.
