“The first is where I tie a single strand of tinsel to a single hair strand. And another one is with a micro bead extension, which is 20 strands of tinsel in one bead,” she tells Allure. “Both are so easy to maintain. I usually warn people, especially with the single strand, that it’s going to fall out with your natural hair strand — so some of them will fall out the first week and some will last up to six months or more.”

West uses both of these methods as well, but she prefers the micro bead technique. “You can use numerous tinsel strands in one bead, and it stays in longer. On fine or medium hair, the tie technique will usually slip out fairly quickly,” she explains.
When it comes to hair tinsel aftercare, West assures that it is “very easy to maintain,” but she always cautions her clients to “move the tinsel if they are curling or using a flat iron” (though she acknowledges that some hair tinsel is designed to be heat-safe). If you do your part to keep them out of harm’s way, West says the tinsel she installs in her clients’ hair tends to have a duration period between two and three months.
