Fairy Hair by NerdFairy
Frequently Asked Questions

What is fairy hair, and how long does it last?
Fairy hair is a shimmery, silky strand tied to a single piece of your hair. It will last until that hair sheds naturally - which can be days, weeks, or even months!

Fairy hair does not usually last as long on children, as their hair sheds faster. To make up for that, I charge half price for ages 12 and under.

Is fairy hair the same as tinsel?
No, fairy hair is much higher quality than tinsel. It lasts longer and can handle a lot more.

What can I do with fairy hair in?
You can brush, wash, curl, straighten, dye, bleach, trim... basically anything you can do with your actual hair! As always, the gentler the better.

Does fairy hair hurt?
Nope! It is a gentle, non-damaging way to add fun color to your hair.

Beware of other methods of applying fairy hair or "tinsel", though. I've heard of it being attached with a bead, slipknot, or even glue, to a section of hair (rather than a single hair) and those can cause pain and/or damage.

What colors do you offer?
I offer many different colors of fairy hair, and they will sometimes vary. If you would like a specific color, please let me know at least ten days before your event or appointment so I can try to have it available.

How many strands of fairy hair can I/should I get?
I recommend getting at least four strands, but you may choose as many as you'd like, and as many colors as you would like! At events, I sometimes need to limit the amount per person, so that everyone gets a chance at hair sparkles. But I will always offer at least four per person.

Who is fairy hair for?
Fairy hair is not "just" for kids or even "just" for girls! Anyone, any age is welcome to try fairy hair as long as their hair is long enough. Little ones are welcome to sit in a parents' lap if they'd like to!

How long does my hair need to be?
If your hair has sections at least two inches long, we should be able to put fairy hair in. For young kids who have trouble sitting still, it may need to be a bit longer, but I'm always happy to try!

Can I hire you for a birthday party or other event?
Of course! I'd be happy to offer hair sparkles at your event. For farmer's markets, vendor events, fundraisers, etc., I am usually there at no cost to the host, and charge customers individually. For birthday parties, customer or employee appreciation events, township or church events, or any other occasion where you'd like your guests to receive fairy hair free of charge, you can hire me at an hourly rate. This includes a minimum of four strands per person, for as many people as I can serve during the agreed upon time frame.

I also offer fairy hair parties, which leads us to...

What is a fairy hair party?
Gather some friends at your home and get your hair sparkled together! Everyone pays for their own fairy hair, and the host gets free sparkles as a thank you for bringing me new customers. You can include other activities in the party, such as food, wine, a book club, game night... Make it a ladies' night out (or in) to remember!

Where are you located and what is your service radius?
I'm based in Parkesburg, Chester County, PA. My normal radius reaches to Nottingham, Exton, Morgantown, and southern Lancaster County. If you are outside of that area, please talk to me about your event! I'm willing to travel further, and may just add a reasonable fuel charge if needed.
