Hot Summer Hair

So it’s summer. You’ve got a wedding, a festival and a few BBQ’s to attend, lazy days at the park with your girls, not to mention a holiday in the sun all pencilled into your diary, but the question is, have you got your hairstyles at the ready? If hair and hot weather are a bad combo and you shudder thinking of what the humidity will do to your barnet, let us help you! At Hot Hair, we’ve got the secrets on how to get super sultry summer styles in an instant. Want to know more? Read on!

Ponytails– Probably the easiest and quickest way to get hot hair in an instant, our clip-in ponytails are the

Perfect solution to jazzing up your hair in minutes. Simply pop your hair into a ponytail or bun and clip in- it’s as easy as that! We do a gorgeous selection of ponies, from short to long and straight to wavy. Try the Classy,

Bounce Clip in Ponytail

Bounce, Flow or Posh for a simple but cute straight look or the Chic, Tumble or Flirt for a wavy look. For weddings, proms and evening-wear, try the Lush, Glam, Gorgeous or Cute for a salon-styled look minus the hefty price tag. Our ponies also look stunning styled into chignons. Simply pop in as described above, wrap around to make a big bun and pin with some Kirby grips to secure. The advantage of these little beauties is that they hold their style no matter what the weather. They stay perfectly straight or beautifully wavy and keep you looking and feeling fresh and cool. Minimal effort, maximum impact!

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

Try the Pouf or Stylemaker for an elegant, wispy look or the Wavy Wrap for cascades of ringlet curls. If sleek and straight is more to your liking, try the Feather Wrap or Straight N’ More Wrap.

Our top tip is to layer the pieces for maximum volume and effect! Try mixing the Feather Wrap with the Stylemaker or the Straight N’ More with the Feather Wrap- the possibilities are endless! The scrunchies are fabulous for daytime wear when you need to keep your hair looking sassy but out of the way, fantastic for more formal occasions such as weddings and proms and of course, the ultimate quick-fix for holidays! Pop a couple into your suitcase and look fabulous when you’re sightseeing or chilling by the pool, without breaking out a sweat.

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….
