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!

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.

 

 

 

 

An Easy Trick to Make Synthetic Hair Look More Natural

 

More NaturalSo you have got a synthetic hair piece or wig, awesome! Our Hothair wigs and pieces look incredibly natural. But we have a simple trick to make your hair blend even more with a hair piece/ ponytail.

In the video below Hannah applies a mattifying hair powder (dry shampoo can also be used) to give the hair a even more “human hair” like texture and make the hair look less “shiny” and more natural. Here she uses one of our clip in ponytails. Which can be purchased here.

This simple trick can also be used if you would like to wear a 3/4 wig and have thin/ fine hair. This helps set your 3/4 wig. To see how you put in and style a 3/4 wig please click here.

 

Ways to Style a 3/4 Wig and Three Different Looks

So we have three different looks with three different 3/4 wigs. These 3/4 wigs (half wigs or 3/4 hair extensions as they call them). Come in three different lengths. They can be styled in many different ways but we wanted to show three different looks ‘The Night Out, The Casual Look and The 50s Vintage Look’.

THE NIGHT OUT USING HOT HAIR’S 3/4 WIG BRIANNA

Hannah tried on one of our 3/4 wigs in the office which gave her instant volume and length with very little effort. She is rocking Brianna in Golden Wheat R1488. We think Hannah’s voluminous style is perfect for a night out.

Our 3/4 wig are incredibly secure as they feature a comb attachment in the front and at the back of the wig as well as two crocodile clips.

Hannah chose a great colour match but a quick tip to remember is that even if you happened to choose a shade lighter or darker than your natural hair. It can always be blended in as our wig features fab highlights and low lights.

Our wigs create a full yet natural look, I mean if you saw Hannah on a night out rocking Brianna, would you have ever guessed that she was wearing a hair piece?

Check out our Hothair 3/4 wig Brianna here.

 

THE CASUAL LOOK USING HOT HAIR’S 3/4 WIG BEYONCE

Jessica Edmunds BeyonceHere we have the beautiful Jessica, a bubbly lifestyle blogger from the South East. She is rocking our mid-length 3/4 wig Beyonce in Sandy Blonde (R21). Beyonce features voluminous large hot roller style curls & waves.

The look she created is a perfect casual look, a twist to the top knot updo. Jessica styled it in a top knot with a half up half down style and we are absolutely loving it! Check out her blog HERE and her Hothair review for Beyonce HERE.

THE VINTAGE LOOK USING HOT HAIR’S 3/4 WIG BAILEY

This first look is from one of the lovely ladies in the office looking oh so classy with a 50s vintage look. She is rocking Bailey in Harvest Gold (HG).

She created look by first curling her own her, then flipping some hair from the front of her head forward to make space to insert the 3/4 wig. Louise Vintage Bailey 2

After she inserted the wig and secured it with the comb attachment and clips that comes with the wig. She then flipped her hair back to blend her natural hair and clipped it to create victory rolls.

The curls were then brushed out to sit on her shoulder then a texturizing spray and dry shampoo were used to hold the hair in place and blend it with her hair as she has very fine hair. Showing that even showing that even those with fine hair can easily secure our 3/4 with ease!

The finishing touch was hair spray to hold the victory rolls in place.

Check out our Hothair 3/4 wig Bailey here.

3/4 Wigs – Half Wigs – 3/4 Hair Extensions

I personally love 3/4 wigs/ half wigs. They are on the easiest form of hair extensions to use, if you want length and volume without having to put clip ins on different layers of your hair then 3/4 wigs are the way to go.

3/4 wigs also called 3/4 hair extensions and half wigs can add instant style and glamour to any head. They are a fantastic way to change your hairstyle from drab to fab almost instantaneously.

Some people prefer to wear 3/4 wigs/ half wigs for a number of different reasons such as the fact that they give you overall volume and thickness especially at the crown of the head, they add length to our hair without too much hassle and some individuals just prefer it to comparison to full wigs as they do not cover your whole head and it can easily be easily blended with your own hair making the wig undetectable.

 

How to Wear Your 3/4 / Half Wigs

1. You just have to simply section of part of your hair in the front.

2. Then place the wig where the part was made and then secure with flexi-combs in the front and then tuck the lower flexi comb at the nape of the neck and secure.Beyonce

3. Now take the initial section of hair you left out at the front and brush it back to blend in your extension and style as you please!

We have 3 new fabulous styles of 3/4 extensions that is guaranteed to turn heads and make you the centre of attention; Bailey, Brianna and Beyonce!
