First came the space buns, then came the scrunchies and hair clips: and now we have the iconic tinsel hair trend of the ’90s making its shiny comeback – just in time for the festive season ahead.

These sparkly tinsel extensions (twinkle hair, icicle hair, glitter highlights, whatever you want to call it) had their major moment in Hollywood when Queen Bey sported this head-turning ‘do at the 2010 Grammy Awards. However, it wasn’t until recently that K-pop idols began jumping onto the nostalgia train, with everyone from Taeyeon to Sunmi starting to incorporate these shimmery strands into their tresses. Ahead, check out how some of our favourite Korean stars are wearing this #Lit look!



Even though the tinsel trend works well on all hair colours, we think it looks especially mesmerising on pastel tones, such as Heize’s mermaid-esque lilac locks!



Sunmi is one of the first few artistes who started weaving in these multi-coloured strands for her ‘Siren’ live performances – and we’re obsessed with how pretty it looks against her sleek brown tresses.

SinB (GFriend)


You can’t go wrong with some bling on jet-black hair. A few carefully-placed tinsel pieces are enough to give you an understated yet striking look like SinB!

Jinsoul (LOONA)


The coolest thing about tinsel is that it’s incredibly versatile on all kinds of hair textures. Take a cue from Jinsoul, who worked in a dash of gold glitz into her loose blonde waves for a laidback, undone vibe.

Taeyeon (Girls’ Generation)


Lastly, who can ever forget Taeyeon’s glittery mane during her legendary set at HallyuPopFest? Just look at how gorgeous her hair looks glistening in motion!

If you’re looking to switch up your hair this season, hair tinsel is a wearable and creative option to give your mane a magical makeover. Now you’re all ready to dazzle!

If you thought your caffeine addiction was bad, just wait till you get your hands on ETUDE HOUSE’s latest fall collection – aptly titled COFFEE TO GO, NO SYRUP.

Coffee lovers are about to get a major pick-me-up in the form of an eye palette, a blush and four lip products with delicious names like Whipping Cream Dolce Latte, Vienna Strawberry Latter, Dry Orange Bianco and No Sugar Americano. Coffee and makeup? Talk about a match made in heaven!

ETUDE HOUSE Coffee-To-Go Lovely Cookie Blusher
