Where: Serafaery is based in Portland, Oregon. Faery hair is a service; the magic is in the tying of the correct knot, with pure silk Faery Hair Sparkles. Find Sera at regular weekly, monthly, and annual events, or book for parties, benefits, or by appointment at sparkle friendly cafes in the area.
Sera sparkles every Friday for Faery Hair Fridays at the Fernie Brae faery shoppe, 4035 SE Hawthorne blvd, Portland, 11am-6pm. We go unil 7pm in the summer!

What: Faery Hair sparkles are the highest quality pure silk sparkles, tied individually onto a single hair for a subtle, magical effect. No metal beads or glue is ever used. Faery Hair can be treated just like regular hair: wash, brush, dry, curl, flat iron, color, and process as usual. They can last from a day to several months, depending on the whims of the faeries (when they take the hair the sparkle is tied to). Average is 3-4 weeks.
We use only pure silk Faery Hair Sparkles, which you can purchase online here (link coming soon). True Faery Hair is long lasting, durable, and beautiful. It can be washed, brushed, blow-dried, flat-ironed, curled, hennaed, and colored over safely. No metal, these can go through MRI scans safely. Not tinsel, no polyester or nylon. Treat it just like your hair, no special maintenance needed.
Beware of imitations! There are a lot of cheaper knock-offs (sometimes called hair tinsel, bling, or flares). Those tiers may call this "fairy hair," but it is not really, in our opinion. These may look the same at first, but the effect will be less than magical with a big knot and will not last long. Sometimes they are inserted with a metal crimping bead that holds a chunk of your hair and cannot be brushed through.
Plastic or polyester silk strands from Amazon and other sources are not the same; we have tested all of them, and insist on only using the best pure silk Faery Hair Sparkles.

Rates: $2 per strand 3 strand minimum gently suggested (some could fall out right away, and we don't want you left with nothing). Most people get between 10-30 strands, we have done as many as 100 - the amount of sparkle is up to you!

You can be as sparkly or as subtle as you like. We have many colors. Images and videos can be seen on the pictures page.
How: Faery Hair sparkles are tied into hair using a tiny magic tool called a "pixie hook," for a subtle effect of sparkle that blends in with hair. Experience is a key part of this magic, as is hair selection, the specific pure silk Faery Hair Sparkles we use, and the type of knot. We are humble recipients of faerie wisdom for this practice. Faery Hair lasts as long as the hair it is tied to stays with you - this could be one day, one month, or in some cases up to one year or more! Average lasting time is 3-4 weeks, but is impossible to predict. This is a temporary adornment, though if a strand falls out immediately we are more than happy to re-tie. <3
Why? It is our mission to sparkle the world. Sparkles make everything better. Faery hair brings delight, in a small, gentle way. We feel that the world needs more sparkles and delight, at this time.
