How are they placed in my hair?
Each strand is tied to a single hair with a tiny tool we call a sparkle hook. The knot used to tie the sparkle strand to the hair is secure and will not slip. The knot will be practically undetectable and an inch or less away from your scalp, and will grow out with your hair.
How long will the strands last?
Clients and our Sparklers have had our strands last anywhere from one day to two years! It all depends on when your hair that the sparkle is attached to sheds. Each strand is tied in a secure knot to one single hair, so when that chosen hair sheds, so does the sparkle. It is recommended that you get a few more strands tied than you hope to wear, because one or two sparkles tend to fall out within the first week due to shedding. We are mindful of selecting the thickest, strongest individual hairs to tie to, but when a hair chooses to shed is a variable that is out of our control. If a sparkle falls out within the time we are together, your Sparkler will of course tie you a new one free of charge.
Does it hurt?
Other than a tiny tug on the individual hair the sparkle is being tied to, no reports of pain have been made!
Can I apply heat or color to my hair?
Yes. You can treat your hair the same way you would without them. Unlike many other sparkles out there that are a synthetic based, our sparkles are silk based, which means our strands can withstand the highest heat from your hair tools, and will remain strong through color-lifting chemicals, dye & other hair treatments.
Is there metal in the strands?
No metal in these metallic-looking strands. We've had customers concerned about going through metal detectors or getting an MRI with the sparkles...this accessory will not affect either of these things.
Can you tie the strands into short hair?
Very curly hair?
Yes to all. Well, almost. Hair for sparkles needs to be at least 2 inches long. It does not matter if your hair is curly or straight — the strands are strong but are also very light, so they go with the flow, however you wear your hair. Finer and brittle hair tends to shed a bit quicker than coarse thick hair, so while we can sparkle anyone, the longevity is different from hair type to hair type.
Do you do events or parties?
Yes. We love to sparkle groups of people and can travel to your company office and sparkle while you work, to your house or store for a special event, to your bridal suite before your wedding, you name it. A location with good light is preferable! We are experts and could tie sparkles with our eyes closed, but tying knots to individual hairs in the dark is not ideal.
Will you travel to us? How far are you willing to go?
We are happy to travel to you. Private appointments always have a 20 strand ($60) minimum, and host paid events a 1 hour minimum, and if your appointment or event is more than 30 miles away round trip from your Sparkler's base location, a fee of $2 per mile will be applied. We are also happy to fly to events if needed, as long as travel and lodging for your Sparkler(s) is in your budget.
How much do they cost?
• 10 strands for $30.
• 20 strands for $60.
• 30 strands for $90.
(and so on)
For each individual, a minimum package of 5 strands @ $15 is strongly suggested to keep you sparkly and happy as long as possible.
HOST PAID EVENTS
• $150 / hour
(# of sparkles per guest is estimated on interest level at event, generally our sparklers can tie 40-50 sparkles in 1 hour if transitions between people are quick.)
How do I pay?
