Whether you need a change for the starts of 2017 or you’ve always rocked a multi-coloured do, we have something for you! Kylie Jenner is the ultimate rainbow chaser, wearing multiple colours a week, our favourite has to be her pastel green hair. This was of course a wig, but you can still get the look with our Goth girl wig and make your friends green with envy. Amber Le Bon rocked a sickeningly sweet pastel pink this year, and we could not get enough! Pink can seem quite daunting as the maintence is high, however if you slip on a wig you can have a pink do in no time! Shop our Lulu wig in Pink to get her cute girly look.

The HUN is the Hottest Hairstyle of the year! (Half Up Bun)

It’s the hottest hairstyle to trend this year… . The Hun. Or, Half Up Bun.

You’ve probably seen this style around on celebrities and fashionistas alike. And for good reason, it’s chic, easy to do and looks so on trend.

The ‘Hun’ or half up bun is a really easy way to update your hair wardrobe.  Even better, it’s a brilliant way to disguise the join on a 3/4 wig or half cap hair extensions. PLUS solves the problem of wanting to wear your hair long and swishy, and in an updo at the same time!

See Poppy Delevingne’s classic & classy example below!

Poppy Delevigne with a Half Up Bun 'HUN'

How to do the ‘HUN’ with a 3/4 wig

1. Section your own hair, ear to ear as you normally would for a 3/4 wig, but pull a bit extra of your own hair to the front. You’ll need this for the bun.
2. Clip in the 3/4 wig as usual ( You can see how to videos of how to do this by clicking through here to our Youtube Channel)
3. Style your own hair up & over the join, making a bun on the top of your head. Secure with grips.
4. Feel smug, knowing you’re wearing the hottest hair style this year.

How to do the HUN with a clip in Bun such as the Swirled Bun or a hair wrap.

  1. Put your own hair in a high, half up ponytail,  leaving at least half your own hair cascading down your back.
  2. Clip in the Swirled bun or wrap over a scrunchy hair wrap
  3. Done!

Will you be wearing it this Autumn? Make sure you send us your pictures if you do!

4 Awesome Hair Hacks to Reinvent Your Hairstyle

Swirled Bun Hair Hack

We are all fans of the bun. It seems to be one of the most frequently worn styles this year. On a typical day one cannot go without seeing a cool girl or two rocking a bun.

This chic catwalk look can be achieved by combining our Swirled Bun with our Triple Twist Headband. Swirl Bun Hair Hack Blog

  1. Put some of your hair up into a high ponytail and leave some of your hair down (the proportion of your hair you leave up or down is entirely up to you, but it is best advised to leave enough hair up to attach the Swirled Bun).
  2. Attach the Swirled Bun onto your ponytail then use the comb attachment and fasten the drawstring to secure it. Use bobby pins if you wish, for extra security (not mandatory).
  3. Place the triple Twist Headband onto your head (in front of the Swirled Bun) and voila you have this fashion forward & catwalk worthy look!

 

Cropped Hair Hack Blog rexCropped Hair Hack

Moschinos Autumn/ Winter show during Milan Fashion Week featured models rocking cropped choppy hair. The stylists used wigs that they pushed back a little from where they would normally sit for an edgy short fringe.

It can be a bit daunting to chop off those tresses that you have been growing for many years.. Which is where one of our bestselling cropped wigs comes in. Try out Eva by Natural Image.

The advantage of wearing a short wig to sport a pixie cut is that you dont have to cut your tresses, you get to choose the perfect fashionable & funky cut for a day, then you can switch back to your normal look whenever you wish!

 

Hair Extensions Hack

We are loving Lea Michelles long and voluminous hairstyle.

Hair Extensions Hack Blog Rex For this look you would need two packs of the 4 Piece 19″ Human Hair Clip in Extensions by Hothair. One of the packs should be in a colour that will blend in with your hair, while the other pack should be in a colour that you want to highlight your hair with. A couple of shades darker for light hair creates depth and interest whilst a shade or two lighter for dark hair looks glossy & groomed.

  1. Attach the 4 Piece 19″ Human Hair Clip in Extensions (this should be the pack that will blend in with your hair colour).
  2. Attach the second 4 Piece 19″ Human Hair Clip in Extensions (use the pack that you want to highlight your hair with).

There you have it, long voluminous highlighted hair with very little effort!

 

Ponytail Hack

Selena Gomez is looking oh so glam in her gorgeous ponytail. Selenas hairstyle can be achieved using our Tousled Pony by Hothair.

Ponytail Hack Blog RexPonytails are such an effortless style, with a Hothair pony you use minimum effort to get maximum style … what a wonderful trade-off!

A clip on ponytail is really versatile- turn it into a huge beehive style bun. Just attach the ponytail, then wrap it around your hair and twisting slightly as you go and be sure to cover up the clip & secure with hair grips. All that volume creates a HUGE on-trend messy beehive.
