Last season it was all about shimmering faces; this season it’s about sparkly hair. Models took to the Giambattista Valli spring-summer 2019 runway at Paris Fashion Week on Monday, October 1, rocking glitter-adorned strands that complemented their romantic ensembles, and it proved to be a high-fashion take on a festival season trend that now has Us considering trying it IRL.

Back in March, the Italian designer swapped glitter for makeup when he painted models’ entire faces with the sparkly stuff at his fall-winter 2018 presentation. A season later, he is back with the next iteration of the playful trend: glitter hair. And while the technique is usually reserved for the deserts of Coachella and Burning Man, Valli’s festive and youthful take is the perfect fall and holiday beauty idea.

Working with hairstylist Paul Hanlon, Valli selected a few of his catwalk queens to have their tresses colored and glittered to coordinate with his dreamy ready-to-wear creations. Using a shimmering, custom-blended color spray, the hair pro misted the temporary pastel shades from the mid-lengths to the ends — but that wasn’t all.

To further enhance the look, Hanlon then brushed on a heavy hand of glitter in a similar color. One model, for example, had her blonde strands transformed into a bubblegum tone with a pink sparkle layered on top. Paired with her brocade floral dress and a rosy lip, the effect was whimsically monochrome.
