We’re all familiar with decal temporary tattoos used to embellish various body parts, including the face and around the eyes. But in this trend, the tattoo is transferred to your hair. It’s a similar idea, just a different canvas!

Typically composed of layers, these tattoos adhere to the skin, featuring backing paper, silicone release coating, transfer film, ink, and adhesive.

How To Apply Temporary Tattoos On Your Hair?

We’ve made it easy for you to achieve this look by breaking down the steps from @elevatehair’s video tutorial:

Step 1: Section the hair where you want the print and place a piece of cardboard beneath for support.

Step 3: Dab a wet sponge over the sheet until the entire print is covered with water.

For best results, the tattoos show up better on straight, lighter-coloured hair.

If your hair is darker, go for a vibrant print or a white design!

The ink lasts up to a week with proper care, so you can rock the look all day – just avoid too much touching or moving around.

Are you ready to give this a shot?
