The trick to its glittery greatness isn’t so much about dumping a load of sparkle onto your head and calling it a day. It’s a precise application directly on the roots and spreading the glitter no more than an inch away from your part. Sometimes it’s fine, concentrated lines of glitter. Other times, it’s a load of sparkles.


It can also be a tasteful sprinkling of the sparkly stuff, as seen above.
