Most ordinary sleepovers are already jam-packed with fun events, from movie marathons to late-night snacks. However, you can sprinkle some magic to your slumber soiree by adding hair tinsel extensions to your list of adventures. Ditch the standard routine of pillow fights and face masks, and turn your sleepovers into sparkling adventures by tying hair tinsel to each other’s hair. Tying hair tinsel extensions during sleepovers is an opportunity to unleash your creativity, embrace your individuality, create lasting memories, and bond with your friends. So, grab your best buddies, raid your hair accessory stash, and get ready to take your sleepovers to a whole new level of fabulousness with our tinsel hair extensions kit.

Setting the stage for your hair tinsel adventure with your sleepover invitation

Before the sleepover fun can begin, you must get your friends on board with a sleepover invitation. Whether sending a text or email or getting crafty with customized invitations, add sparkling or glittering details to get your friends excited about the sleepover. Examples of invitation titles include: “Get ready to sparkle and shine all night long” or “Bring your sense of adventure for a night of sparkle and glamour.”

The invitation should also include a heads-up on how to prep for the big night. Remind your squad that it’s best to arrive with clean, dry hair to ensure the tinsel strands stay put throughout the night. You can also encourage them to come with any accessories they have, such as ribbons, hair clips, or even tiaras to complement their sparkling new hairdos.

Shopping for hair tinsel extensions

You have a couple of hair tinsel shopping options to make your sleepover dreams a reality. You could turn it into a full-on girls’ day out and hit up your favorite stores to hunt for the perfect tinsel strands. Stroll through the aisles with your best buddies, compare colors and textures, and get excited with each new find.

However, if everyone is too busy, you can get our hair tinsel extensions kit online with just a few clicks on Amazon and Walmart. Our kit has everything you need to tie the hair tinsel, from pliers and microbeads to a crotchet hook, so you don’t have to order the tools separately. The kit also has 12 different colors and 2400 strands, ensuring you have enough hair tinsel for the entire crew.

Tips for choosing the correct hair tinsel extensions

Before diving headfirst into the world of hair tinsel, you must pick the perfect strands first. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you shop:

  1. Consider your hair color: Choose hair tinsel that complements the natural hair color or adds a pop of contrast for extra flair. 
  2. Think about length: Opt for tinsel strands that match your hair length, or go for longer strands for a more dramatic effect.
  3. Check for quality: Consider hair tinsel strands made from high-quality materials. Our hair tinsel is made from high-quality polyester and is heat-resistant, allowing you to use hot tools to style your hair during your sleepover. 
  4. Mix and match: Don’t be afraid to mix and match different colors and textures to create a unique look.

Step-by-step guide for tying hair tinsel extensions

On the sleepover day, set the stage for some tinsel-tying fun. Clear some space, crank up some tunes, and create a festive atmosphere that’ll get everyone in the mood for a sparkling adventure. 

Next, you must ensure you have everything necessary for the tinsel-tying sleepover party. The materials you need are:

  • Hair tinsel strands in your chosen colors
  • Crotchet hook
  • Silicon microbeads
  • Pliers
  • Rat comb
  • Hair clips or hair ties
  • A mirror

There are tons of awesome tutorials online that’ll walk you through the ins and outs of tying tinsel hair extensions like a pro. Plus, watching together is a great way to get everyone on the same page and pick up some handy tips and tricks along the way.

Once you’re feeling confident and ready to dive in, it’s time to decide how to tackle the tinsel-tying extravaganza. You could go for group activities where everyone helps each other out, or you could get creative with themed styling sessions – think mermaid vibes, Disney princesses, or disco diva looks!

There are two tried-and-tested methods for tying hair tinsel – the slipknot method and the microbeads method. The following is a brief description of each method:

The slipknot method

  • Section off a small piece of hair where you want to attach the hair tinsel.
  • Fold a tinsel strand in half and place the looped end under the hair section.
  • Bring the loose ends of the hair tinsel over the hair and through the loop.
  • Pull the ends tight to secure the hair tinsel in place.
  • Repeat with as many strands as you like, spacing them out evenly for a balanced look.

The microbeads method

  • Thread a silicone bead onto the crotchet hook.
  • Take a small section of hair and thread it through the silicone bead.
  • Slide a tinsel strand through the loop of hair.
  • Use the pliers to squeeze the silicone bead firmly in place, securing the tinsel to the hair.
  • Repeat the process with additional strands until you’ve achieved your desired look.

Don’t forget to snap plenty of pics to capture these fantastic memories. Whether you’re going for a subtle shimmer or full-on sparkle overload, you’ll definitely have a fun and memorable sleepover.
