It’s the festive season and that means there are countless social events coming up. Usually this means that you’re spending the days with the same group of people so not only do you need to look gorgeous at all times but you need a different look for each day! Fear not as this is easily done. With clip in hair extensions you can change your hair like you change your clothes. You don’t wear the same outfit to more than one social gathering in the space of a week so why wear the same hair?!
Dirty Looks to the rescue, we’ll give you a look that is suited to each day of Christmas....
Christmas Eve – On this day of excitement and anticipation you may head to the pub for a few festive drinks with friends before you settle down in bed subconsciously listening out for those sleigh bells. This requires a little glamour, try a pair of jeans with heels and a smart casual top with a few evening sequins. For your hair go for your freshly tonged hair extensions, maybe pin back some of it to ease up on the glamour, you’re only at the pub after all.
Christmas Day – It’s here, the big day, the day we’ve been building up to for the last few weeks. Today you need to make an impact but still you’ve got to be practical. You’ll probably be making your rounds visiting the family and maybe even cooking a mighty feast. A nice winter dress with tights and heels will look just great and some sparkling accessories. Your extensions from last night will have dropped just enough for you to wear a loose, natural looking curl, wear it all down and forward showing it off, it’s Christmas you want to look your best!
Boxing Day – Ah the calm after the storm. Boxing day is a nice quiet day so sit, lounge and enjoy leftover Turkey sandwiches and pickled onions. Today’s a day when you can get away with wearing your comfy sweats, just keep it stylish with a trendy logo t-shirt with soft joggers and a long, slouch cardi. Now for the hair: Just because it’s a lazy day, it’s no time to slack on the hair extensions front, it’s still Christmas time which means that people may call over unannounced. Pop your shorter hair extensions in, wear them naturally straight not poker straight. This will look effortless and easy but you’ll still feel confident enough to entertain.
New Years Eve – This is your chance to go all out! It’s the biggest party of the year. You’ve got your little dress, killer heels, bag, bangles, earrings and everything a party girl might need (chicken fillets, false lashes, fake tan etc) now for the all important party girl hair extensions! Don’t do anything by half’s. Start with a blow dry using volumising mousse and a round brush; get as much volume as humanly possible! Use Jumbo curling tongs to style your longest set of Dirty Looks full head hair extensions. Curl each weft on a straight angle from the bottom up, leave for a minute or so then gently remove the hair from the tong without unraveling it right away. Once you’ve don’t this to all of the hair brush it out with a hair extension loop brush leaving a bouncy shape. Back comb your hair at the roots and pop your hair extensions in. Fuss and tease it until it’s as BIG as it can be. Volume and big hair extensions have been one of the most popular trends for this year so see the year out in style and start as you mean to go on!
New Years Day – The morning after the night before. Who cares what you’re wearing today, you just concentrate on getting over last night’s antics, whatever they were! You’re hair is probably resembling a birds nest now from all last night’s back combing and then hitting your pillow in the early hours of the morning. Use the back combed monstrosity to your advantage and give yourself a big, stylish up do. Even a simple pony tail with back combed hair can look amazing! Now for your New Year’s Resolution. "I will continue to look after my hair extensions, I will make the effort to ensure that they always look natural and I will make the most of my hair everyday!” J
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Dirty Looks! x
