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

Up-dos– A cute, classy up-do is always the best way to beat the heat and so it’s no wonder that up-dos always take off during the summer. Keep cool and beat the heat, wherever you go with our gorgeous range of scrunchies. Simply tie your hair into a ponytail or bun and wrap around, as you would a hair band.

Pouf Wrap Hairpiece

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

Brigette

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.

Proms, Balls and Summer Parties

So, the school year is heading to an end and the days are getting longer and hotter…this can only mean one thing- it’s prom, wedding, ball and racing season!

As well having to organise your dress, bag, shoes and jewellery, the last thing you want to be worrying about is how to wear your hair. Fear not- you shall go to the ball! To give you a helping hand, we’ve put together an all-you-need-to-know guide to Summer Party hair, featuring how to create everything from poufs to ponytails and buns to braids…read on to find out more…you can thank us later!

Glam clip in Ponytail

  1. A high ponytail with a slice of hair wrapped around at the band. A beautifully simple yet classic style- the high ponytail looks gorgeous teamed with a cute tiara or hair accessory and comes out winning every time. We’ve got a huge range of ponytails that are ready for you to clip in and go. Curly or straight- the choice is yours! Try Xpress, Lush, Classy or Flow for a straight style or a Chic, Glam, Gorgeous or Cutefor beautiful curls that require no styling whatsoever! Simply clip into your own ponytail, take a small section of hair from the bottom and wind all the way around the top to disguise the clip. Secure with a Kirby grip and finish with a spritz of spray. For a cute variation, try wrapping a braided headband at the top of the ponytail.
  2. The Half-up half-down style. Look drop-dead gorgeous with loosely-pinned, half-up half-down mermaid curls. To get this easy look, wash and blow-dry your hair and loosely tong to create soft waves or scrunch with a curl-defining mousse whilst your hair is still damp. Carefully pop in some Hairdo 23″ Wavy extensions. Take a section from each side of the front of your hair, pull to the sides and pin back. Finish the look with a mist of hairspray.

Brigette 3/4 hairpiece

For a straight version of this look, we recommend the Brigitte– one of our most favourite and deluxe hairpieces! A half-head of hair with thick, tumbling layers for a voluminous look that’ll make fellow prom-belles green with envy!

Simply section your hair, ear to ear and tie the back part up whilst you pop the piece in. You should have a loose section of hair at the front. Taking this section, lightly mist with some hairspray and backcomb it. Now you’re ready to put the piece in! Brigitte comes attached with a tooth-comb for extra hold. Simply align the comb on the piece to the line you made when separating your hair ear-to-ear and place into the hair. Now, take the front part of your hair which you previously backcombed and arrange into a quiff, making sure to conceal the front part of the hairpiece. Pin the quiff with Kirby grips, spritz on some extra-hold hairspray and voila- the perfect prom-queen look!

  • Pretty ponytail. For a pretty, minimal fuss style, try a low ponytail at the nape of the neck with lots of height at the crown for extra wow-factor. First, backcomb layers of hair at the crown of your head and finish by spraying with hairspray. Next, pop in some Hairdo extensions, in either 22″ or 25″, depending on how long you want the look. Gather the hair, tie into a low ponytail and add a small flower or jewelled pin to add extra detail if you wish.
  • Layered braids. For a gorgeous style that’s as simple to create as it is pretty, try layering our braided headbands and our chunky braided headbands. You can either leave your hair down (you might want to add some of our extensions to  create length and volume first- try the Hot Hair Human Hair Clip in Extensionswhich are ultra-easy to heat style, or, the Hairdo range of extensions which come in a range of styles and lengths). Once you have your hair set, pop in a few braided headbands and create rows of them at the front of your head for instant boho-chic.

2 Braided Headbands & a Stylemaker

  • Last but by no means least is a hairstyle that is probably one of the most popular for occasions such as proms and balls- Yep, you’ve guessed it, it’s The Bun! A classic bun is one of the most beautiful ways to set off your features and your all-important dress and it’s super-easy to create if you follow our steps! There are two ways you can create a beautiful big bun and we’re going to explain how to do both.

The first is the ready-made Ken Paves braided chignon. Simply tie your hair into a ponytail or bun and clip it in- it’s as simple as that!

Or you can use one of our fabulous ponytails and wrap it into a bun yourself.

Start by tying your hair into a high ponytail if you want a high bun or a low ponytail if you prefer your bun to be low. Put in one of our ponytail pieces, such as Classy, Flow or Lush. Separate the piece into two, take the slice of hair on the right and wrap it all the way round to the left. Do the same with the remaining slice of hair, but wrap in the opposite direction. You should now have a big statement chignon. Tuck the ends of the ponytail into the bottom of the style and secure with some Kirby grips. And there we have it…super slick chignon-chic!

Festival Fabulous Hair

It’s festival season! So you’ve got your sleeping bag- check, toiletries- check, wellies-check and your camera charged up and ready to go but if the thought of going without water, electricity, straighteners and curlers or the fear of greasy locks and frantically taming your bedhead first thing in the morning fills you with dread, then fear not and read on! We’ve got top tips and secrets that’ll keep your hair looking slick and make you the object of everyone’s attention on the festival circuit. Not a strand of frizzyness or greasyness in sight! So here we go- our ultimate guide to festival hair…

Flashes of Colour– Eye-catching and a must-have for festival season- clip-in highlight hair extensions are colourful, funky and instant! We’ve got plenty of fun clip in fun colours as well  natural colours for a more subtle look or our personal favourite, Animal Print Highlights that’ll help you unleash your wild side!

Animal Clip Hair Extension

The Fringe A super easy way to get your hair out of the way and looking cool- the fringe takes seconds to put in and will transform your hair instantly. Try the Hairdo Clip-In Fringe for a softer look or the Hot Hair Sexy Straight Fringe for a heavy, blunt look. Simply pop your hair into a ponytail or, you can leave it out and clip the fringe in at the front of your hair using the attached butterfly clips. Gently give it a ruffle with your fingers for a shaggy, carefree look for extra rock-chic effect!

The Braided Headband– Probably the most versatile piece that you can invest in, our braided headbands form a fast-track route to cute tresses that ooze hippy-chic. Pop a couple into your bag and simply wear at the front of the head. They look fabulous layered up or even wrapped around your ponytail or bun. Plait perfection with minimal effort!

Mermaid Waves Simple and sweet, softly curled mermaid waves never go out of fashion for festivals. The best way to keep them beautifully set for the duration of your stay at a festival? Fake it! We love the 23″ Hairdo Wavy Extensions, which are comfortable to wear, easy to put in and require no styling whatsoever. Simply wash your hair at home and plait tightly whilst your hair is still damp. Take them out on the first day of the festival and scrunch your hair with some mousse. Pop in the extensions and rake your fingers through to blend in your own hair.

The Ponytail– A girly style that’ll get your hair out of the way and keep you looking and feeling cool, you can’t go wrong with a simple ponytail. We do a huge range of beautiful ponytails that come attached to palm clips, so all you need to do is clip in and go! Pop your hair into a ponytail first, slide the clip in to the top, tease out some tendrils at the front to frame your face and get ready to rock the power of the pony!

Bounce Clip in Ponytail

The Bun The weather’s hot, you’ve been frequenting the mosh pit a-plenty and running out of ways to liven up your limp hair. This is where the bun comes in! Terribly forgiving for hair sins and easy to do, a simple bun will disguise greasy or flat hair and jazz it up a treat. Try the feather wrap, straight n’ more, wavy wrap or stylemaker. Simply wrap around your own ponytail or bun for a beautiful style in a jiffy!

The Wig– What do Jessie J, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry all have in common? These ladies can’t live without wigs in funky colours! Without a doubt, a staple for festival season, you can’t go wrong with a full wig. A fantastic solution to covering up your own hair and a perfect excuse to temporarily transform yourself by wearing a colour you’ve always secretly wanted to sport, our wigs come in a multitude of styles and are made in every colour under the sun. Try the Sugar or Mandy in soft pastel colours for a more striking look or go for something more natural like Avril or Joanna– the choice is yours!
