  • Trend Alert - ‘Ombre’ Hair

    ombre hairWe’ve all seen Drew Barrymore making a statement with her ‘Ombre’ hair lately, but it seems she’s not on her own in loving this unique style as other celebs have been jumping on the ‘Ombre’ bandwagon this summer. You can create your own cool ‘Ombre’ hair using Dirty Looks hair extensions.

    So what is ‘Ombre’ hair I hear you cry ... well it looks a bit like you’ve forgotten to dye your roots for a while, but in a good way ... the roots and top of the hair are darker and they slowly fade down into lighter tips... it may sound a bit outlandish, but as we’ve seen with celebs like Drew Barrymore, Alexa Chung, Rachel Bilson, Hilary duff and Kristin Cavallari, this look can really work and it looks set to be big this autumn!!

    If you fancy trying out a bit of ‘Ombre’ for yourself then you have a few options:

    If you have dark roots or hair similar to shades Espresso or Melted Chocolate then you can spice up your do by adding some single strips in Tanned Blonde or LA Blonde, dying the roots of these extensions by two shades darker would create a more natural ‘Ombre’ look as your hair subtly fades from dark to light.

    Alternatively, if you’re a block colour brunette and you want a more subtle take on the ‘Ombre’ look then you could try a full head set in either Iced Coffee or Cappuccino Highlights to add some drama! Again, dying the roots of the extensions would give you a more faded effect.

    ‘Ombre’ hair is definitely an acquired taste and you’ll either love it or hate it, but it seems it’s around to stay for the moment at least so why not Ombre-fy your own locks with Dirty Looks hair extensions...?

  • Ayda Field becomes Ayda Williams Whilst Wearing Hair Extensions

    Ayda FieldActress Ayda Field was looking gorgeous as she got hitched to heartthrob Robbie Williams at the beginning of the month and her hair was simply stunning! Ayda obviously had a top stylist to get her hair looking so fab, but you can achieve the same look with Dirty Looks hair extensions.

    Ayda’s colouring is very similar to Dirty Looks shade Jennifer Aniston (or if you want a more golden look like the picture above then opt for the shade St Tropez) and you could re-create her gorgeous length with a 20-22” full head set. This will give you plenty of hair to work with and will add natural looking length and volume!

    If you want the look for your own big day or for another glam occasion then why not try curling your extensions using jumbo curling tongs and then gently brush the curls through to loosen them slightly. Add your final touches by pinning some hair back in a glitzy slide and applying a good quality hair spray and then you’ll be ready to go out looking as hot as Ayda!

Couple your hair extensions with a blunt fringe to create this statement hairdo. You can create a more natural look and add some texture by adding some random loose curls which can be achieved by quickly curling strands of hair with straightening irons. ‘Uber’ layers looks great for this hair style, have your stylist trim your hair extensions for the desired effect!

    ‘The Nouffant’

    And finally, if you want a more extreme ‘Nixties’ look then ‘The Nouffant’ is just for you! Backcomb your hair at the root and then tease your hair upwards and away from the root using your fingers, clip the hair into place when you are happy with the style. Use a good quality strong hold hair spray to keep your do in place!
