The Fringe is BACK

Just as you FINALLY finished growing it out from the last time fringes were big news- they’re back.

Fringes have been spotted on Olivia Wilde (glam as always), on the model in Victoria by Victoria Beckham’s new range, on Lea Michele from Glee AND on Leighton Meester.

It’s a serious trend, and this time around it’s blunt, just skimming the lash line. But are you ready to go for the chop just yet?

Never fear- we have the answer.

Our Styled Fringe clip in fringe extension is the perfect solution to the chop or not to chop dilemma.

All you need to do is clip in the fringe extension and you are ready to roll. No commitment necessary.


Hot High Ponytails

We’re a little bit obsessed with ponytails at the moment. The Higher and swishy-er the better.  They are super on trend this AW so we thought we’d do a round up of some recent ones that we’ve LOVED and a quick ‘how to’  Hothair style. That is- cheat your way to fabulous swishyness.

If you would like a perfectly sleek,  pony like these ladies  you should try the Jessica Simpson Wrap around pony or the Xpress Wrap Ponytail. Each of these are slick with a special extra wrap piece to hide the join.

Simply tie your hair up into a ponytail, as high as you dare, making sure you slick back any wisps & strays.

Then use the clever hidden comb on the ponytail extension to slide it over the band of your own ponytail. Wrap the extension around & secure with the velcro. Then wrap the extra piece around to cover the join, securing with a kirby grip or two.

And then swish.


Blake Lively’s Elegant Up Do

Braids and messy updos have both been having a moment this summer and here Blake Lively manages to wear both of these trends at once, looking as gorgeous as ever and not at all overdone. Why not borrow some of her enviable fashion style for a simple yet cool look that is perfect for hot summer nights.

Blake Lively updo

This pretty style is very easy to do, no matter what your hair length or dexterity with hair creations . Simply pop on a couple of our Braided Headbands then gather your hair up into a low side pony, disguising the ends of the braids & wind around a hair wrap such as our Stylemaker. Voila! A gorgeous style worthy of any red carpet event and best of all? It won’t droop in heat & humidity.

Summer’s Secret Hair Hit- The Long Bob!

This summer has had a few hair hits, but the biggest stealth hit has been the long bob.
Our favourite has been Jennifer Annistons glowing blonde version, but we also want to noteably mention Cheryl Cole’s dramatic transformation, Fearne Cottons sleek take on the classic style, Pixie Lott’s cute, fluffy chop, Katy Perry’s fun wavy ginger to blonde look and Jessica Alba’s perfect & not at all mumsy bob (phew! maybe it’s not such a secret look after all)

You too can get this fabulous look without the commitment – try our Jessica Simpson The Bob or our Chanelle wig for instant chic. The secret is out….


Victoria Beckham looked radiant when she attended this year’s biggest social event; The Royal Wedding. And her elegant hair style was very similar to a HairDo product from Hothair.

Victoria’s hairstyle was created by her good friend and celebrity stylist Ken Paves who styled her hair exactly like one of his HairDo Tru2Life’ products, the Wrap Around Pony, to create the sophisticated and chic look.

To create Victoria’s look you could use the fabulous clip-in Wrap Around Pony which negates the hassle of trying to grow longer hair or looking for a wig that can be worn up as this 18″ hairpiece is made for a full looking ponytail. It adds a long, full trend-setting pony style to any woman’s hair instantly and the wrap around feature truly sets it apart from any other clip-in pony. Available in 13 fashionable shades, the Wrap Around Pony will match most modern hair colours.

Tru2Life is a cutting-edge, heat friendly, synthetic fibre technology that allows wearers to style these pieces using heated/ thermal tools as they would with their own hair or on more expensive human hair pieces. There is no damage to the fibres, which will stay looking like natural, healthy human hair, even to the touch.

Tru2Lif Heat-Friendly synthetic hair can be styled using thermal tools on medium settings (up to 180 degrees C and 350 degrees F). Curling has never been so easy. When curling the Tru2Life synthetic hair, simply slide the curled fibre off the iron and pin the warm curl with a clip until the fibre cools and curl sets. Steam rollers and/or wet setting can also be used.

Simply click on the step-by-step to see more information and an instructional video from Ken.


Cheryl Cole wowed the world’s media this week with her fantastic new hairstyle as she arrived for the first day of filming America’s X Factor. She had created fabulous volume and curl which was stunning and certainly had the impact it was intended to achieve.

You can recreate this stunning style in an instant using Hothair’s Brigette three-quarter long layered hairpiece, which integrates smoothly into your own hair giving volume and 28” length without the need for a full wig.

Available in 9 stunning shades and light and easy to attach, Hothair’s Brigette hairpiece will match most hair colours and give you Chezza style with added X Factor!

Kate MiddletonWe are all suffering from Princess Hair envy at the moment. (not to mention the intense disapointment that no- we probably never will have a fairytale wedding to a real Prince)

Hothair Trends for 2011

What will be hot in 2011?

Over the next week HotHair are going to bring you a round up of the hottest trends in 2010 and what we predict will be hot for 2011 as well some great tips

on how you can create these looks yourself.


Long Glossy and Softly Waved

One of the biggest trends for 2010 was long, glossy hair with bounce and soft waves through the ends. This style shows no sign of disappearing in the next 12 months as it is not only polished and feminine but is equally glamorous for night & day.

Take a look at some of our favourite examples of 2010.

Sarah Jessica Parker Kate Middleton Cheryl Cole

For the simplest way to achieve this look, simply pop on one of Hothairs wigs, such as the Jessica Simpson Long & Lush wig and ready to go.

& Lush
was £110, now £87.50
Wavy Extensions
was £72, now £54.95
Straight Extensions
was £67 now £53.60

Extensions are another simple way to achieve this look as explained below.

First prep your own hair by using a thickening spray. This will give the roots of your hair volume, and ensure the clip in extensions hold firm.

Then, either use your styling tongs, or large rollers to create loose waves in your hair, leave to cool & set for a few minutes. A good tip is to curl your hair away from your face to highlight your cheekbones. Gently back comb your crown for extra lift if you like.

Then, clip in your extensions by sectioning your hair from ear to ear, and securely clipping them in place under your own hair. >> watch “how to” video

Finally, run your fingers through both your hair & the extensions. This helps them blend together, and loosens the curls. Finish off with a spritz of glossing hairspray to finish off the look.
