• Drew Barrymore's New Hair

    Drew Barrymore’s hairstyle has made a huge jump back in time...she has been seen out and about sporting a very different but very familiar look!  There are many 90’s hairstyle trends on the horizon for the rest of the year...the grungy look, uber volume and the headband are soon to be everywhere.

    Drew spent a whopping 5 hours at the salon before she emerged with a look we’ve seen on her before. Drew’s hair was transformed from a dark brunette to a sunny blonde with light blonde highlights. What was so distinctively 90’s though was the style rather than shade....a super messy texture and voluminous flick over to the one side! Drew Barrymore’s new hair was very much Poison Ivy, a character she played back in the 1992.

    What do you think of the 90’s style? Is it something you’ll be trying out?

  • Red Carpet hairstyles at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner

    The stars were out in force for the White House Correspondents' Association dinner over the weekend. It was great to see so many varying red carpet hairstyles too! There weren’t loads of updo’s or loads of down do’s just a really good mix! Here’s the rundown of our favourite looks of the night.

    Sofia Vergara has made many best dressed lists from this night and we can see why. Her floor length teal gown was simply stunning and her hair didn’t disappoint us! Her long butterscotch locks were gorgeously styled in voluminous big waves that had tons of movement and looked really glossy! This is the perfect red carpet down dos!

     Another gorgeous down do from the night was Katy Perry. Opting for a more vintage inspired style, Katy’s hair was giving veronica lake style 1940’s waves. This style team with minimal makeup and a floor length green dress with branch detail has Katy looking every inch the Hollywood starlet!

    One of our most loved hairstyles for the summer was also on show in washington for the event. Hayden Panettiere wore her hair in a crown/halo braid and teamed this with a summery lemon cutaway gown.  This hairstyle looks really impressive and is really quite easy to do! Check out our tutorial on this!

    Our last favourite style from the event is the super cute Natalie Dormer. Leaving her Game of Thrones character, Margaery Tyrell’s dark locks on the show the blonde actress chose a half up style. The ends of her hair were curled and top top section pulled back. This was given loads of lift at the root for a  60’s boho feel!

    Who had your favourite hairstyles from the event?

  • Kate Middleton's Hair

    Happy Anniversary Kate and Wills! It was 2 years ago that the happy couple got wed and they are now expecting their own little prince or princess ♥

    After a bout of illness at the start of her pregnancy Kate has been seen out and a about a lot more over the last couple of weeks. Not only does she look blooming but pregnancy has done great things to her hair!

    Known for always having perfectly styled locks, Kate hasn’t let her standards slipwhilst being pregnant. Her trademark chocolate brown hair has looked gorgeous. Seen at various events including a Childrens Hospice visit and at the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studios, her large voluminous waves have been with her.

    At the Art Reception, which was a little more formal, the princess pinned back the side sections of hair in a crossed over style. This created a beautiful cascade of waves through the ends.

    We love Kate Middleton's hair here at DL...in our eyes she really can't do no wrong! What is your favourite style of the Princess’?

  • Beyonce's H&M Advert!

    Wow...just wow! Who has seen the new Beyonce/H&M advert? We are loving the Caribbean beach theme and loving the Beyonce hair shade changes!

    The new promo for the Summer range has been previewed online and it looks amazing! Shot in Barbados the promo looks more like a Beyonce music video...filmed to her latest single and coming in at a whopping 1 minute 30 seconds long we can see why!

    The video has various shots of Beyonce on the beach, in the sea and an evening time shot to show of the various styles of clothing. There are loads of dancers joining her with the music video style dance shots to show off more of the company’s range.

    Not only are we amazed at how stunning Beyonce looks in the ad but we are loving the split personality scenario! Changing between uber blonde in some shots to a raven hair beauty in others, Beyonce’s hair shade changes look amazing against the stunning backdrop.

    Do you think Beyonce's hair looks better with blonde or brunette? We can’t decide which look we like best!

  • The New Made in Chelsea Girls!

    The new series of Made in Chelsea has introduced us to some new faces...and more importantly  some new hairstyles. :) Not just that but many of the original girls have dabbled with new hairstyles too!

    We are loving Louise’s ombre locks. The ombre look is a tricky one to pull off, you have to get the balance of the shades just right and we think that Louise has managed to do this perfectly! Her just below shoulder length locks always look good whether she is wearing this down in traditional Made in Chelsea style or throwing it into a ponytail.

     We are also loving Binky’s new locks! Binky’s hair, in previous series’ has always been styled with the bedhead feel...if styled at all! But this series her locks appear fuller, some hair extensions may have helped here, and her styling appears more tamed and sleek. We can’t wait for a proper formal event to crop up to see how glamourous her hair can get!

    New to the show last series was the evil and manipulative Lucy! We all love a bad girl right!? Well she’s back and now she seems to be moving over to the good side...now close friends with Binky her locks appear to be darker than before. The deep natural brown shade looks gorgeous on her though. Something we’re not used to seeing on the Made in Chelsea girls is super straight locks! In the episodes so far we have seen Lucy sporting this look!

    Ok so lets get on to the new girls...I think the production team felt the show was missing some blonde babes after the departure of Caggie! So lets introduce Phoebe, Olivia and Ashley!

    We are huge fans of Phoebe’s less prim and proper style. A friend of Andy’s...Phoebe has a ring in her nose and an edgy fashion sense that we think makes her really stands out from the other Made in Chelsea girls! Her hair is a little shorter than the rest of the girls and not only that but the ends of her hair has been dip dyed with a teal blue/green shade. Now she has only been in a few sections of the series so far but we can’t wait to see how she styles her hair for the more formal events!

    Next up we have Olivia. Olivia has started the series making an enemy out of newly good girl Lucy for her bad girl ways...keeping up? Olivia’s light blonde locks appear to be quite naturally styled for the show, however in this pic we are loving the vintage inspired waves. Judging by this we are very keen to see what styles she styles in her in during the show!

    And last on our favourite newbie list is the beautiful Ashley! Ashely who went on a date with Francis at the end of the last series is now girlfriend of Ollie! Confused!? Yeh we don’t understand this one either! Still Ashley has gorgeously long blonde locks which we love. She is a fan of wearing her hair tied back which is something that the rest of the girl tend not to do, so that is perfect for us to oogle new styles to try out!

    Are you watching the show? Which Made in Chelsea girl’s hair are you loving? Have we missed out your new favourite...let us know!

  • Lace Bang Braid Hair Tutorial


     Braids are a huge trend for the Summer months so this tutorial is for such a great braid. The Lace Braid is such an easy braid to do and once you have mastered the technique you can create all sorts of designs! This tutorial is just for the simple braided bang or hanging braid look!

     Step One:

    Start by sectioning the hair at the front of your face or your bang if you have one. You can start this braid as far over as you like, but we think it looks best from your parting! Split the front section into 3 small bits ready to start your braid.

    Step Two:

    Now you need to start your braid...start with the section closes to your head. Now you need to add a section into this so section your hair from along your parting and add this to the next section you will be moving. This is where the Lace Braid differs to the normal french braid....you don’t want to pull this tightly as you want the braid to hang!

    Step Three:

    Instead of adding in more hair from the other side just braid the next two sections as normal. Again when you get to the next section of hair moving away from your head...add in another section from the line of your parting. Continue down as much of your hair as you like and secure with an elastic!

    It really is as easy as that! Why not add another braid by the side for a super cute Summer style!?

    What’s really great about the method for this braid is only adding hair from one section allows you to shape the braid! This method is used for completing S Braids, Wrapped Pony Braids and the heart Braid! Learning this easy method does open up loads more styles for you to try!

    Do you think this is a style you will be trying out? Is this already a favourite style of yours? We’d love to see your pics of the style...be sure to tag us on Tumblr so we can take a peek!

  • Jennifer Lawrence's New Hair

    Another actress has decided to go for the chop! Following in the footsteps of Julianne Hough and Sienna Miller, Jennifer Lawrence debuted a long bob, otherwise known as the 'Lob' at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday evening!

    Jennifer Lawrence’s new haircut is just in time for Spring/Summer and the added honey toned highlights to frame the face give the style a sun kissed feel! Jennifer has been known to play around with the shade of her locks but this is the first major length change we have seen from the 22 year old. The new length gives Jennifer a more youthful look with the side swept fringe and loose beach waves keeping the style bang on trend.
    What do you think of Jennifer’s new cut? Do you prefer her with longer locks or are you loving the shorter style?

  • Coachella Hairstyles

    With the festival season kicking off last weekend we thought we’d take a look at the wonderful and wacky Coachella hairstyles on show! This is THE hottest festival to be seen at, with loads of celebs kicking back and enjoying not just the bands but the LA sunshine too!

    Vanessa Hudgens is a Coachella regular and this year her hairstyle choices were bang on trend! Going for really voluminous and defined, bouncy curls she teamed this with a large floral crown. Adding flowers to a hairstyles is a favourite for festival goers but this year it is also a bang on trend style...something we’re expecting to see lots and lots of on the high street!

    Katy Perry is also a fan of a festival and her style this year has changed a lot from the grungy look from last year! Katy Perry’s hair looked so perfectly styled into vintage inspired waves! After seeing her on the red carpet just a few weeks ago with a bob, we’re almost certain that she has had some help from some clip in hair extensions! The style looked sleek an perfectly styled in comparison to many of the other celebrity festival hairstyles! We also love her Dolce & Gabbana skirt and crop top ensemble...so cute!

    We also have to give credit to Whitney Port's Coachella look! Wearing one of her own Spring Summer collection dresses she looked stunning in the mint green shade. Whitney’s long locks were left loose with a centre parting. This was left really natural, with some kinks but the look was really low maintenance...and looked great!

    We can’t wait to see what other trends we spot at this Summer’s festivals! Do you think the hairstyle trends from Coachella will carry through to the rest?

  • Red Carpet Hairstyles at the MTV Movie Awards 2013

    So the MTV Movie Awards was last weekend and there have been more and more pictures from the red carpet, award show performances and after show parties emerging! Looking at these there is a clear red carpet hairstyle trend on show...the updo! The updo’s at this event are different to many others though, with lots of younger and interesting styles on show instead of  the elegant and classy styles you would expect at other award shows!

    Bella Thorne was looking gorgeous on the red carpet. Wearing a cream suit her copper locks were scraped back into a high bubble ponytail! This style was huge on the catwalks last season so it was nice to see a celeb rock this look on the red carpet. Although we are huge fans of the look, we couldn’t help but wish someone had got in there and back combed her hair more...this would have given the bubbles more shape!

     The british flavour of the night came from the gorgeous Emma Watson. Wearing her hair in a simple low down bun, a style that is going to be a huge Spring/Summer trend. This simple hairstyle looked beautiful against her cut out detailed dress. Proving that you don’t have to have long locks to pull off such a beautiful red carpet updo.

    We are also loving Selena Gomez’s dutch braided do too! Her uber long locks were tightly scraped to the centre of her head and tightly braided all the way to the ends. The dutch braid is great as this makes the braid stand out from the head unlike the french braid that flattens the hair...the look was finished off with a quiff! Braids are a huge spring/summer trend so it was fabulous to see such a stand out style on the red carpet.

    There were some very out there styles on the red carpet...but this is something we have come to expect at the MTV Awards. Who thought that a stumped out cigarette would be made into a hat? No we don’t get it either!

    Who do you think  rocked the best red carpet hairstyle?

  • Clip in Hair Extensions

    Now, its a common misconception that clip in hair extensions are only used to add length to your hair...clip in hair extensions are perfect for adding volume to thin/fine hair and being used to bulk up or cheat your way to the perfect updo!

    Here at Dirty Looks we stock a variety of lengths, going from as short as 12-14” clip in hair extensions all the way to 24-26”!! So whatever length your own hair is there will be a similar length of hair extensions, remember you need to measure downwards from the top of your ear to see how long your own hair will be in relation to the clip in hair extensions. Choosing a length very similar to your own hair will add oodles of volume to your locks and no one will even know that you are wearing extensions! Perfect for that just stepped off the red carpet feel. ♥

    The other great thing that clip in hair extensions can be used for is an updo! We all know how fiddly it can be trying to cover, for example, a doughnut bun when you don’t have quite enough length or thickness to your own hair. Instead of choosing a full head of hair extensions opt for a couple of single wefts or a quad weft in the shade closest to your own. Now you want to use this weft to clip onto your doughnut and wrap it around to ensure none of the mesh can be seen! Perfect and this is just one example of how an updo can be enhance with clip in hair extensions. Be sure to check out our hair tutorials for other cheats and tips for using hair extensions with updos!

    What else do you use you clip in hair extensions for besides length? We’d love to know if you have any tricks for updos too :)
