The Gold Leaf Hair trend first made an appearance a few years ago in the celebrity world, when in 2014 the stunning Rita Ora arrived at the Met Gala with a thin layer of gold leaf in her hair, initially mistaken for a clip- she soon set magazine readers straight. Kylie Jenner, an American television personality, model and entrepreneur, turned up at an interview with a gold leaf tattoo applied to a single lock of hair.
Unlike what you may think, applications for this type of hair style are accessible to everyone and are rich in variety. From gold to silver, gold leaf hair can be applied on roots or tips, single locks or on an entire portion of hair. A shiny and elegant touch to your hairstyle, you will not go unnoticed at parties and important events!
Precision and accuracy is required in the application of gold leaf to hair. After washing and drying hair, it is important to apply mousse or gel on the area selected for application. Then carefully pick the gold leaf up (if necessary use a small brush or some tweezers) and apply onto hair whole or piece by piece making sure that it adheres properly to hair by applying light pressure. Once you have completed application, it’s a good idea to apply some hairspray for better hold, for a longer-lasting style and to prevent the gold leaf from shattering soon after.
A product which transforms hair into a veritable jewel for all kinds of occasions, from weddings to fashion shows and special events. A trend which has become popular among top hair stylists, taking social networks by storm, from Instagram to Pinterest.
While we await new trends set to make an appearance over the next few years, gold leaf has reconfirmed itself as one of the most versatile products of our time.
