Megan Thee Stallion Flaunts the Hair Tinsel Trend

Megan Thee Stallion took to Instagram earlier this week to serve hair tinsel and a real hot girl attitude. Blending purple and blue tinsel streaks into a long dark wig, the Popeyes collaborator sets the tone for a season of creativity.

Popularized by the likes of Beyoncé and Katy Perry, the hair tinsel aesthetic is pervading the beauty industry. The trend has garnered a TikTok following of over 85 million views and has gained the name "fairy hair." Tinsel speaks to the playful second coming of Y2K beauty, a time when self-expression and unfiltered glamour ran in stride with a resistance to the mundane. Tinsel is building cross-industry popularity as seen in product launches including Nike’s tinsel-colored Air Max 95 and Fenty Beauty’s makeup collection called "TINSEL $HOW."

As for Megan, it can be expected that she will continue to embrace bedazzled individuality on the gram and on stage. The singer has already made a lasting impact on fashion and beauty trends, experimenting with Y2K hair stamps and Cruella de Vil-inspired Halloween looks.
