I did this for a client at Xmas, she had a very high pony tail with a big quiff, I used gents hair gel (it was an Affinage one called blue goo lol) then dabbed on the glitter, it turned out fab! I then sprayed lots on hairspray afterwards, I didn't take a pic as my iPhone battery was dead :-((

Not hair related, but a tip I found while in retail... If you buy something glittery to wear, spray it with hairspray to keep the glitter on. And if you have Matt hot pants spray on hairspray to make them "wet look" and on your skin before putting on so they don't ride up your bum xoxo

I love the glitter dip look

This is the version I saw of it, and I meant to try it out, but never did!

Sadly this is not my picture, but it was on Capital's FB page. I might give it a go on the block this weekend.

Do you think the glitter used to mix with acrylic for nails would be fine enough? I had some pure glass glitter once that was finer than I have ever seen since, it was like dust. Had to be careful though being glass and all. Xoxo

I can't see why not. You treat extensions like normal hair so it would be the same xoxo
