Light up your hair with Glowbys fiber optic hair extensions! A fantastic impulse item, Glowbys sell themselves at any nighttime event - Mardi Gras, St Patrick's Day, prom, 4th of July, concerts, Halloween, and more!
We are transitioning to a new version of Glowbys that turns on by closing the barrette clip, unlike the previous version with the sliding lid. We are now primarily shippin the new GL4 version, although some colors of the previous GL2 version will ship until we have exhausted our current inventory (Green, Slow Rainbow, Pink and Red). If you prefer a certain version, then please indicate in the comments section at checkout, and we'll do our best to accomodate.
Contact us for inner case quantity (120pcs/10 dz) pricing (all one color).
Glowbys are the original fiber optic hair extension, and still the best!
- By far the smallest barrette available (easy to hide under the hair)
- Easily replaceable batteries
- Reversible barrette (left- or right-handed)
- 12 different light colors
- See comparison with a typical knock-off
- Completely lead-, cadmium-, and mercury-free
Glowbys hair lights are illuminated thin fiberoptic strands attached to the hair to create many brilliant stars of light (50-60 fibers per Glowby, with the longest fibers 14" long). The extremely compact, black oval barrette (1.3" x 0.6") houses two small CR1220 batteries (BATTERIES INCLUDED) and a light source, which lights up the ends of the fibers. GLOWBYS ARE REUSABLE - you can wear them again and again. Just change the batteries when Glowbys become too dim, typically 10-15 hours. Slide lid slightly open to turn on/off.

Wearing Glowbys - Wear the thin barrette under the hair so that only the lights are visible, or wear Gem Glowbys like a regular barrette. For under the hair, attach underneath the top layer of hair. The barrette will be covered, but the Glowbys lights will still be visible. For more Glowbys styling tips, please see our Glowbys Guide.
Glowbys are 14" long, but can be cut to any length - a star of light appears wherever the fibers are cut. Glowbys come in a cascade cut pattern, but they can be arranged in almost any pattern depending on the your hair style - use your imagination! Hair Stylists - just attach Glowbys and treat the fibers like strands of hair - cut, loop, etc. Caution: Do NOT use a curling iron or hair dryer on Glowbys; HIGH heat will melt the plastic fibers.
