Get wiggy

Dip dye is so last year! Meet the new subtle hair lightening trend taking the world by storm, Balayage.

All the colours of the rainbow

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.

On the 26th of March we held our first ever blogger event for HotHair. Needless to say we were excited and nervous in equal measures.

We chose the Renaissance Hotel in Kings Cross St Pancras to hold the event- it’s a beautiful venue, perfectly suited for all kinds of events- plus has the added bonus of being extra easy to get to – and was the site of the Spice Girls Wannabe Steps.

Attending the event were 30 beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers from London and the surrounding areas. We were excited to meet these fabulous ladies – and one gentleman, and to show off our HotHair pieces and extensions  to a new audience.

Throughout the evening we showcased our new ponytails- Boho Pony and Swish Pony, as well as all our hair extensions, hairpieces and wigs.

It was a fun filled evening, full of excited people trying pieces on- helped by some of our most experienced staff.

We also held a raffle and handed out goody bags and would like to thank our sponsers who helped make this event really special.

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.
