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

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


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:

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

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.


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.

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.
