We've dyed it, we've curled it, we've straightened it , we've crimped it, rolled it, flat ironed it, and added feathers. What else can we do to our hairstyles?
Well, former beautician and British reality TV star Amy Childs thinks your hairstyle needs vajazzling.
Now, vajazzling got its trend alert spurt in the summer of 2010 — I think the word was adapted from Grey's Anatomy's famous va-jay-jay line and turned into a snazzy term for spangling your hair "down there."
I don't know how much it caught on in practical terms, but it certainly made it into the contemporary lexicon. (On a headier note: I wonder when the word vajazzling will make it into the OED — maybe it already has. Sigh.)
Amy Childs has capitalized on this and brought the sparkle back up front and center. Hair vajazzling requires putting spangles and sparkles heat sealed to the hair on your head — although I note she (normally a brunette) is wearing a wig to promote it.
And she's gotten lots of coverage (pun intended) in a nearly nude vajazzled catsuit to promote her new hair product product, because well, nothing says new hairstyle gadget like wearing no clothes (huh?).
In fact, her barely there photo call got so much attention, it's tough to find just exactly where to find the hair vajazzling product itself and how exactly it is applied — it sounds dangerous and damaging to hair.
When I first noticed hair tinsel on a pretty midlife maven with gorgeous grey hair, I wondered if that would catch on. Sure enough, I started seeing it on grown-up women all over the place.
As did hair feathers.
So hair vajazzling may be the next thing to alleviate our apparent constant need to futz with our hair. It does look kind of pretty, if you don't overdo it... in my humble opinion.
So, does hair vajazzling sound appealing to you?
