  • News Flash: Beyonce Goes Blonde

    The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Roaming InsideSuperstar Beyonce goes blonde!

    The singer has swapped her BRonde locks for Malibu Blonde and revealed her new look at the Grammies earlier this month.

    We loved Beyonce's BRonde look, but her new sandy blonde shade is gorgeous and works really well for her!

    It’s a thumbs up from us!!

  • Award Ceremony Hair - February Red Carpet Watch

    There’s been lots of award ceremony hair to look out for this February. We’re in our element with all the red carpet events as it’s given us loads of great hair to talk about at Dirty Looks HQ  ... here are our picks of the top styles and tips on how to re-create them with your own clip in hair extensions.

    The 2011 Grammy Awards – February 13th 2011

    Katy Perry was wearing a gorgeous dress for the award ceremony and we just LOVED her glitzy purple and green eye make-up!!

    She had gorgeous soft curls in her hair which complimented her whole look really well.

    If you have dark hair like Katy, then a 16-18” or 20-22” full head in Soho would be perfect for re-creating her look yourself. Use a jumbo curling iron to achieve those big romantic curls!

    The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards - ArrivalsSimilarly, Selena Gomez wore long soft curls for the Grammies – this style is huge this year so the girls are band on trend! 20-22” extensions in Espresso would be the closest match for Selena or to re-create the subtle highlights, Iced Coffee would be fab!! Add some curls with a 24mm curling tong and gently brush them through to loosen them slightly.

    We love Miley Cyrus’ BRonde look from the red carpet! Get Miley’s uber length with a 24-26” full head and add some loose curls with your flat irons. Pin back a section of the hair from each side and secure with a cute clip!

    The 2011 BAFTA Awards – February 13th 2011

    Actress Amy Adams wore a beautiful beaded dress for the BAFTA awards and her hair carried natural curls. If you’re a red head like Amy then shades St Tropez or Spiced Auburn could work well for you!

    Re-create Amy’s gorgeous curls with a 24mm curling tong and brush the curls through to soften them. Use a hairspray safe for use with hair extensions to hold the style in place!

    Bonnie Wright went super straight with her gorgeous red hair for the BAFTA’s. A 16-18” full head would be best for Bonnie’s look. Apply a good quality heat protection treatment to your own hair and your hair extensions and then use your flat irons for a straight and sleek look. Take sections of hair from above the ears and pin them back to create a half-up half-down look!

    The 2011 BRIT Awards – February 15th 2011

    Cheryl Cole looked stunning for the red carpet in a sexy backless black sequined dress with a thigh-high split. We loved her smokey cat’s eyes and her updo with a fashion ponytail ... FAB!!

    cheryl-cole-gown-2011-brit-awardsTo get this unique ‘do part your hair all the way around leaving a 2 inch perimeter below the parted hair line.

    Pull the hair above the hairline upwards, angled backwards, and apply hairspray. Backcomb the hair for volume before adding more hairspray to form a nest.

    Use your remaining natural hair and brush it back over the nest of hair you have created and secure it underneath with a bobble so you have a short ponytail left at the back of the head.

    Select 2 or 3 hair extension wefts (depending on how much hair you want for your fashion pony!) and clip these onto your natural ponytail, wrapping them around 2 or 3 times.

    Paloma Faith also caught our attention with her oversized fashion hair-bow and her long red locks! To create a curl at the ends of your 20-22” extensions, use heated rollers on just the ends of the extensions, but be sure not to leave them on for too long. This should give you a gorgeous kink like Paloma!

    Select an oversized hair accessory to really set this style off!

    And the winner is...

    There was some gorgeous hair for the award ceremonies this month, but we think Cheryl Cole really stole the limelight with her unique up-do! She stood out from the crowd of lose curls and really made a statement with a hairstyle that was a little bit different!!

  • Miley Cyrus Hair Extensions - New BRonde Shade!

    b50ad33b5635086d_Miley-CyrusMiley Cyrus rocked BRonde hair extensions at the Grammy awards and we loved it!! You can get the look yourself with Dirty Looks hair extensions!

    Teen Queen Miley Cyrus arrived at the Grammys with her brand new BRonde look! She looked as perfect as always, wearing a floor length metallic sparkly leopard print Cavali dress which was simply stunning! Her gorgeously long locks were styled in loose waves with sections of hair pinned back from her face in a half up half down ‘do. Her fab new hair extensions had a subtle ombre look, but definitely falls into the BRonde category! And this is a super easy way to achieve the BRonde look without having to change all your hair!

    If your base shade is similar to Miley’s you can achieve this look with Butterscotch Highlights J Go for a quad weft and a few single strips positioned in the underneath layers of your hair! This is guaranteed to look great worn wavy like Miley or poker straight!

  • Valentines Hair Extensions

    It doesn't matter whether you’re loved up or a single lady, we have the perfect hair styles for you this Valentine’s Day with Dirty Looks hair extensions.

    Loved Up

    If your partner is treating you to a romantic meal this Valentine’s or you’ve got a hot date with that special someone then you will want to look your best! We have a selection of hair do’s that are sure to WOW your other half!

    Half Up, Half Down:

    This style looks great whether worn curly or straight, long or short.

    For real drama, a full head in 20-22” or 24-26” is just perfect! Fit your full head of extensions and then take pieces of hair from each side, just above your ears, and pin them at the back of your head with a cute clip.

    To make this a bit different, why not twist or plait the sections of hair you clip back to add some gorgeous texture!

    Chignon:

    The Chignon is a beautiful option for whatever you might have planned.

    Once your extensions are in place, gather your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck (but don’t make it too tight) and split your ponytail into two parts. Twist both parts of the ponytail tightly into a spiral. Starting at the base of the ponytail, carefully twist it into a bun. Secure your Chignon with hairpins and apply a good quality hair spray or smoothing cream.

    Curly Faux Bob:

    A shorter full head of extensions works best to achieve this do! A 12-14” full head set would be ideal.

    Part your hair slightly to one side and fit your extensions, adding lots of volume at the roots by teasing your hair! Use a good quality heat protection treatment before adding some gorgeous curls using a 38mm jumbo curling iron (or for tighter curls you could use a 24mm curling iron).

    Tie your own hair and your extensions together loosely at the back of your hair in a very low ponytail. The elastic should be about 4 inches from the end of your hair. Twist the hair upwards until you reach your desired length for your faux bob, tuck it underneath and secure with bobby pins.

    Pull some loose curls to the sides of your face to soften the look! Don’t forget a good quality hairspray to hold the style!

    Single Ladies

    And we don’t want the single ladies missing out on all the fun, so if you’re hitting the town with the girls then these hair style’s will ensure you’re dressed to impress!

    Long waves:

    Long hair is huge this year and some soft, effortless waves would look great for a night on the town! A 16-18” or a 20-22” full head would be ideal for adding gorgeous waves, or for ‘uber’ length, why not try a 24-26” full head?

    Fit your extensions and then add some big, loose curls using a 38mm curling iron or rollers! Gently brush the style through to loosen the curls slightly and create a more carefree look!

    You could always add some braids/plaits for texture and interest!

    Super Quiff:

    For this statement look, a 20-22” full head set would work best.

    Section hair on both sides - from your temple to the corner of your crown and then from your crown to the top of your ear. Clip in the hair extensions from the nape of your neck up to the crown.  (Normally the clip ins would be fitted around the whole head, but for this style fit them all in the back from ear to ear).  Then move the hair at the crown forward and out of the way!

    Take the hair from where you sectioned it earlier and tie it back into a pony tail just above the area where your extensions are, this will keep the side areas sleek and is a great cheat for giving height!!

    Backcomb the top of your hair closest to the ponytail to make a secure base.  Now you need to start to form your quaff; work from the crown forward and use some hairspray for control.  Section by section, shape the hair back and over the pony tail.

    Super straight:

    For a quick and easy (but no less sexy) look, you could wear your extensions super sleek and straight! This works well for any length, but we think 16-18” and 20-22” full heads look fab!!

    Remember to use a good quality heat protection treatment before you use your flat irons to straighten out your extensions and your own hair.

    You could add a glitzy headband for some gorgeous glamour and sparkle!
