The perfect fringe, at ‘Marni’.

Fringes are the way to go this season. They’re bold, eye-catching and will pep up your hairstyle a treat on those cold winter days. We loved the super-straight, blunt fringe which we spotted on a model at Marni. Get the look with Hairdo’s ‘Fringe with Wisps’, which features clever tendrils of hair at the side to help you blend it in with your own hairstyle. Simply clip it in and comb it flat for a poker straight look. For a softer look, try Hairdo’s fabulous NEW ‘Side Swept Fringe’, which features lots of layers, cut to create the perfect side fringe look!

Soft, ruffled mermaid waves are the way forward for this year’s winter season, as demonstrated by Roberto Cavalli.

Or, give Kate Middleton a run for her money and get the look with ‘Wild’– a beautifully natural wig with gorgeous curls which look freshly tonged wear after wear. Finish the look by taking a small section from each side, twisting them and pinning in the middle for hair that’ll make everyone green with envy!

 

5 Ways with a PONYTAIL

At Hot Hair, we have a gorgeous range of easy-to-wear ponytails in a huge range of styles and colours. All you have to do is pop your own hair into a ponytail or bun and clip them into the top- it’s as easy as that! But if you think a ponytail is just a ponytail, think again! At Hot Hair, we can’t live without our clip-in ponies we’ve learnt a few tips and tricks on how to mix it up and do different things with them. We thought we’d share our insider tips with you, so here’s how to get five looks out of any one of our Hot Hair ponytails…enjoy!

Jennifer Morrison wears a Statement Chignon

1. The statement chignon.

If you have never tried wrapping one of our ponytails into a chignon- then you’ll be wowed once you have! Big, statement buns are all the rage for 2012- as seen on a huge number of celebrities across the globe and the good news is that they are super easy to do with one of our clip in ponies. Simply tie your hair up, clip the hairpiece into your own and divide into two equal sections. Take the section on the right and wrap all the way around to the left. Do the same with the remaining section but wrap in the opposite direction. You should now have a big, voluminous bun. Tuck the ends into the side of the bun, pin with some Kirby grips, spritz with a fine mist of hairspray to settle any stray hairs et viola! A red-carpet style chignon.

Super Sleek High Ponytail : Versace Summer 2012

 

 

2. The super-sleek high ponytail.

A high ponytail is the ultimate fast-track route to glamorous hair. It is simple, fuss-free and always looks polished. To create the look, begin by tying your hair up into a high ponytail. Create a tight, sleek look by brushing your hair completely flat and by gelling it down or create a softer look and pull out some tendrils at the side of your face- depending on which you prefer. Clip the hairpiece into the top of your own ponytail and rake through with the fingers to blend in with your own hair. For extra wow-factor, take a slice from the side of the ponytail and wrap it around the top

3. The side-swept pony.

A casual, side-swept pony is the way to go this summer. It is sweet, simple and perfect for a lazy day in the park, barbeques or for evening events. First, tease some sections at the top of the head to create maximum volume and tie your hair into a low ponytail, positioning it to one side. Clip your ponytail in and finish with a mist of hairspray. You can also take a slice of hair from the side, braid it and twirl it around the top for extra detailing

4. The side plait.

Pretty plaits have been massive this year, on the catwalks and on red-carpet events around the world. They’re fantastic for hot summer days when you want to keep your hair out of the way but also great if you want to show off a little dress. If you have short or fine hair but dream of having a long, thick, side plait resting on your shoulder, then here’s how to get it! Tie your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and clip the hairpiece in. Plait the piece as you would your own hair, incorporating your own hair into it as you go. Once you’ve tied it at the bottom, gently stretch the plait at the sides and pull out some light strands for a soft, boho look.

5. The Half-up, half-down do.

Can’t decide whether you want to wear your hair up or down? Do them both! This is a hairstyle which seems to be one of Kate Middleton’s favourites and with its classy, voluminous look, who could blame her? Begin by tying half of your hair up into a ponytail and clip your ponytail hairpiece into the top. Try lightly teasing some sections at the top of the ponytail for extra volume, or adding a small hair accessory

We Love Lana

If there’s one person we’d choose for being top on the list of our girl crushes for 2012 then it’d surely be Lana Del Rey- an artist who has taken not only the music world but also the hair world by storm, with her trademark locks which look thick, glossy and perfectly styled, event after event.

Lana Del Rey at LoveBox 2012

Lana wowed the crowds at Lovebox over the weekend, sporting a stunning 60’s style statement beehive, finished off with her long, thick hair, loosely curled and tumbling down her back.

At Hot Hair, we’ve got the perfect piece for all those Lana Del Rey -lovers who want to get the look.; Our Brigette hairpiece- a long, deluxe half-head piece which is beautifully textured and comes attached with a

slide-in comb attachment.

To get Lana’s volume-rich look, simply part the hair from ear to ear, backcomb the front section and hold in place with a clip whilst you attach the hairpiece. Simply slide the comb attachment into the line which separates the front and back of your hair and push the backcombed section over the top of the hairpiece to conceal the line. Finish the look by pinning in place and by spritzing with hairspray et viola, lush, voluminous hair that’ll get heads turning.

The Hottest Spring Hair Styles for 2012

This spring hair is colourful, fun and – shock horror- not only easy to do but easy to wear!

Here’s how to get the looks that define the season

PASTEL AND COLOURED HAIR

Coloured flashes and Ombre hair are huge this spring- and this is one trend that is set to keep going all through summer and into Autumn.

This trend was not only on the catwalks for SS12 but stars like January Jones and Julia Roberts have been picking up on this surprisingly wearable trend.

Unfortunately coloured hair whilst fun, is not always compatible with a day job.Fortunately for you we have 2 great solutions:

Get funky hair colour in a flash with these single Human Hair Colour Strips for just £12. Or try the heat Stylable Clip inColour for a more all over effect for just £15.

THE URBAN WAVE

Ever so slightly disheveled hair with a slight natural wave was all over the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2012, including at Givenchy (pictured below)

Urban Wave hair at Givenchy show, Spring Summer 2012

This is a super easy speedy do, that requires a little bit of prep, and perhaps some help with getting a longer length.

Heres how:

Straight hair: Roughly dry your hair leaving it to kink a bit naturally.Then work a smoothing serum through to give extra shine. Add length with some similarly waved extensions such as the Jessica Simpson Hairdo Styleable Softwave Extensions at just £95

If your hair is naturally curly, you will need to straighten it first, then create some bends and kinks by roughly scrunching up your hair and using your tongs to ‘set’ the scrunch. Gain extra length easily by clipping in the high quality 19″ human hair extensions from hothair.

SLEEK PONYTAIL

This trend shows no sign of going away. Probably becuase not only does it look great, it can be worn for all kinds of occassions AND it is easy to do.

You can wear it sky high like at the Versace Haute Couture Spring Summer show, or lower at the nape of the neck.

A ponytail extension is the easiest way to quickly get this great look, and to get the length that you want.

Hothair’s Hot Picks for 2012

Here are our top predictions for 2012’s HOTTEST hair looks AND how to get them.

1. Mermaid Waves

Jessica Biel

Hair that looks naturally dried with a hint of wave is beautiful and simple. To get this beachy wavy look, tousle dry your hair and apply some testruizing wax to ensure the texture of your own hair matched the extensions. Then clip in these Jessica Simpson Soft Wave Extensions for instant long mermaid locks!

 

2. Colour Flashes

Katy Perry

Coloured hair is everywhere! On the catwalk, on celebrities, and here at Hothair!

Get the look with no commitment and all the fun with these easy to use clip in coloured extensions. Styleable and fun strips of high quality synthetic or human hair.

 

3. Heavy Fringe

Get Quirky & Flirty like Zooey Deschanel.

Zooey Deschanel

Can’t commit to cutting your fringe? Clip one in like this Jessica Simpson Clip in True 2 Life Fringe. The longer sides blend in with your own hair and you can adjust the height by clipping it back a little further.

 

 

4. The Ponytail

Jennifer Morrison

Whether worn High or Low this trend is one that just keeps going… and going…..

Wear it like Jennifer Morrison (from House) with a small braid to disguise the band. Our Xpress ponytail is perfect as it has a braided band already included!

5. Big Curls

Big hair is … well… Big news!

Cher Lloyd

Get Cher Lloyds look by creating curls with barrel tongs through the front part of your hair.

Then clip in the Barbie 3/4 hairpiece leaving your fringe  & front part of your hair forward. Once it is clipped in, toss the hair back covering the join for a full on wavy look.

Verity Wig

Kate Middleton’s Hair Extensions (did she really?)

There were all sorts of rumours surrounding the new Duchess of Cambridge’s hair extensions.- Did she? Didn’t she?

Apparently she didn’t use hair extensions but it did get us thinking- If we were suddenly called out to our first solo Royal Engagement- would we be tempted to use a quick little helper for a hair style volume boost?

After all, every girl needs a little helping hand every now and again and we certainly couldn’t blame her if she did need a bit of extra oomph

We think clip in hair extensions are the perfect solution to hair dilemmas- no mess, no fuss and certainly no commitment. Our clip in Human hair extensions can be trimmed & styled just like your own hair. Perfect no matter what the occassion may be- Royal or not.

 

Glowing Gillian Anderson

Gillian Anderson positively glowed at the launch of Johnny English Reborn, in which she plays Head of MI7 Pamela Thornton.

Her elegantly dishevelled and chic upswept hair was created by hairstylist Kim Roy using a combination of clip in extensions from Hothair.

Clip in extensions are perfect for creating extra volume and height for special occasion hairdos . Carfully placed extensions clipped in behind the crown then blended with your own hair can eliminate the need for lots of backcombing, and can help create the most elaborate of updos, even if your own hair is not long & thick enough.

Why not try these extensions for instant volume next time you are creating an updo?
