Bedazzling Your Hairline Might Be The Hair Hack Weve Seen

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

In the 2000s, rhinestones could be found on nearly everything. Jean pockets. T-shirts. Headbands. With the handy BeDazzler, you could embellish your own clothing and accessories in the comfort of your home. The adornments also made their way to the runway thanks to legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath, who showed us how to combine the gems with high fashion. Most recently, we've been spotting rhinestones and embellishments on people's hairlines.

Decorating your hairline like this is an easy way to elevate a simple style. All you need is a good edge control or pomade, adornments of your choice, and an adhesive. For the latter, there are different options to choose from. Hairstylist Nigella Miller recommends Got2b's Ultra Glued Invincible Styling Gel to ensure that whichever appliqués you use stay put. Makeup artist Rahnell Branton, who has done many of these bedazzled hairline looks, likes to use lash glue, specifically Duo's Brush On Striplash Adhesive.

Because I like experimenting with my hair, I wanted to try the trend on myself. I started with a 2-day-old wash-and-go brushed up into two high puffs, a pretty standard style for me. I grabbed my tools — edge control, tweezer, and gel — and got to work.

I am not a baby hair wizard by any means. While I would love to be able to create intricate loops and spirals, I keep it pretty simple because then I'm less likely to mess up — one or two swoops on each side of my head, and I'm good. I keep a few edge control gels in rotation, but this time around, I used the Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Control Edge Glaze because it has a great hold, and there's no flakiness.

After the edges were laid, the tricky part was actually putting the gems on. To start, I used Got2b's Glued Styling Spiking Hair Glue as an adhesive for the emerald-green gems I purchased from my local Family Dollar. Using the pointy end of my Baby Tress Edge Styler, I dipped into the gel and applied it on the backs of each. I always give the Got2b gel a few seconds to get tacky for optimal stickiness. The rhinestone did end up sticking to the brush, so I just plucked it off with my fingers.
