Sparkle Up Your Summer with Rhinestone Hair Accessories

At least half of today’s hottest beauty trends are a result of viral TikTok videos. Not all beauty trends are a success in the real world. Every now and again, we see a new beauty technique that has us excited. Rhinestones are a great example.

The Y2K aesthetic involves adding gems to hair. You can do this either by hand using eyelash adhesive (or another, equally gentle adhesive), or with a gem stamper such as the Blinger set available on Amazon and popularized by TikTok. We’re sure we’re far from the only ones to love this idea.

This isn’t a look you would wear every day, but adding rhinestones or crystals is a great way to dress up your hair at special occasions. Think music festivals, bachelorette parties and rooftop parties. Mono-jewels can be used for a uniformed look or mixed and matched for more fun. It’s an interesting look, and not in a bad way.

See some of our favorite moments in hair from celebrities, top hairstylists and influencers.

This look is perfect. The cornrows are gorgeous, as are the zigzags and hair gems. This hairstyle will take you hours to create if starting from scratch. You should do this when you are free.

A peek-aboo moment is a favorite of ours. We’ve seen it at the Bibhu mohapatra Spring/Summer 2020 runway show. This look is achieved by sweeping your hair behind your ears and securing with pins. After you’ve smoothed it out, add the rhinestones.
