Picture this, it's year five and you've just got into double figures, you got the dress you wanted from Tammy Girl/New Look 915, your glitter polish is on and your heel is at least 2 inches. But something... is missing. The school disco is that evening and you've poured over Shout magazine for every piece of style and fashion advice, and how to artfully look away from the lush classmate you have a crush on, but you haven't quite reached perfection.
And then you remember. You dive into the foot of your wardrobe, trainers and backpacks flying over your shoulders, and triumphantly emerge with a purple carrier bag from the pre-teen mecca, Claire's Accessories. Inside are the pink, lilac and baby blue clip-in tinsel hair extensions that will elevate your look to the heights your new two-digit age deserves. All is well.
Sorry I was having a moment there. I'll get right to the point. Emma Roberts' pastel tinsel hair extensions just gave me the most overpowering flashbacks and I'm still reeling.
Prime Video shared this first-look image of Emma in the upcoming rom-com Space Cadet, where she stars as a Florida party girl called Rex who turns out to be the NASA space program's only hope after she flukes her way into astronaut training. Obsessed already.
And natch for a party girl turned space adventurer, glittering metallic extensions just belong poking out from under her space helmet.
Described as having; "smarts, heart, and nerve," in the synopsis, we're already feeling like we could be pals with Rex. And we're already coveting those glitter hair extensions.
You can actually get a DIY home kit (with pretty high ratings) on Amazon so you can create your own.
As a curly girl, my adoration for the clip-in wonders back in the day was from a distance, unable to partake, but this home tinsel extension kit comes with heat-resistant tinsel, that can be straightened or curled, as well as cut to length.
And yes it's already in my basket, I'm about to experience a childhood dream. Now, where is my cola Lipsmacker?
