Do Hair Tattoos Really Work? | Hair Trends

A few months ago, I saw a photo of Kylie Jenner wearing a really simple hairstyle with what looked like a flash tattoo. I went on a mad hunt to figure out what I could find. Guess what?  There are temporary tattoos that are specific for hair!

I  just had to try them, but asked myself…  do they really work?  Kamri and I decided to give them the “Fab or Fail” test on our YouTube channel!

After applying the hair tattoo I added a simple tie-back the hair.  We liked how it accented the tattoo and really made it pop.  We both immediately fell in love! I am thinking about how much fun we will have with these all summer.
