Extending her chocolate brown hair by 16 inches, the young starlet looked effortlessly glamorous when leaving the salon, with her new hair styled into loose curls.
By opting for this shorter length, Roxanne has been able to achieve a very natural looking finish to her hair.
We are all guilty of it, grabbing those extra 20 minutes in bed by deciding to opt for a ponytail for the day instead of a blow-out. For an everyday working woman a bun or top knot can sometimes become a lifesaver on those days when you simply don’t have time, however what do you do when unexpectedly you are off on a night out after work, and don’t have time for a full shampoo and blow-dry before you are due to leave? Luckily there are options available, and some clever ways to change your hair from day to night without your friends/colleagues being any the wiser.
Here are 5 quick tips to transform day hair, to night.
Dry shampoo can be a life saver if you have second day hair that needs a bit of a lift. Spray the dry shampoo onto the roots, and rub in to give the hair a good tease and to remove any sign of residue. This will add volume to your hair creating a glamorous bed head look.
If you have had your hair tied back all day, sometimes a down doo just isn’t an option, therefore a low side or high chignon is a quick and easy style perfect for any evening event. All you will need is a few bobby pins, and a hair donut (if your hair is short or thin). This hair style will take no more than 5 to 10 minutes to create and suits most face shapes.
If your hair is usually worn straight during the day, adding some waves or curls is an easy way to transform your look. You don’t need hot rollers or a curling iron, simply twist your hair within your hair straightener for beautiful natural waves. If curls are not for you, simply try flicking your hair out around the front of the face to give it some dimension and movement if it is feeling a little limp.
Headbands and clips are a great way to move your day look into the evening. You can add a little sparkle and glamour without having to play with your hair too much, and your look can be transformed within seconds. Try not to overdo it on the accessories however, sometime the smallest of clips can create a great effect.
A braid can be worn in so many ways, however loose and to the side is one of the easiest styles to pull off for effortless glamour. Try pulling your hair to the side and securing the braid at the end with a hair tie. Then gently pull at the pieces of the braid to loosen them for a messy, bed head look.
Now that you have a few ideas on how to work your second day hair, why not give them a go on your next night out.
Wearing her now trademark blonde locks in tight spiral curls, Rita had dip dyed the ends an electric blue, looking ever so chic and on trend.
She managed to also pull off the double denim look effortlessly and gave an outstanding performance. 10 out of 10 in all areas for Rita Ora, well done!
We are very much used to seeing our lovely celebrities looking as though they have just stepped out of a music video, with their hair perfect and make-up immaculate, and some of us would even be forgiven for believing they just wakeup that beautiful. However as Sarah Harding demonstrated at the beginning of this week, celebrities are human too, by experiencing that dreaded moment when a beautiful hair extension comes loose in public.
As extension wearers know this can happen from time to time, however we can just slip the hair into our handbag and it goes unnoticed, however for poor Sarah this wasn’t the case, and the mishap landed on twitter for all to see.
Looking at the images it would appear that these are a glue based extension method, where shedding is quite common. More secure methods such as micro ring will reduce the risk of this happening, and as an added bonus are far better for your hair as they involve no heat or glue.
Has this ever happened to you?
Ever since bursting onto the music scene in early 2011 we have seen Jessie J sport some pretty interesting fashion and hair choices. From body suits to dip dyed purple hair, its fair to say that Jessie J isn’t afraid to experiment with her look.
Then in a shock move a few months back, the Voice judge decided it was time to tone down her look, changing her trademark harsh black bob to long soft brunette curls. The Essex born singer looked lovely with this more demure style, however it hasn’t lasted long.
Earlier this week Jessie J has tweeted pictures of her hair re-style, dying it back to black and cutting her locks into a short bob.
Although we absolutely loved her natural brunette look, we have to admit, it wasnt quite her, and her new style is much more like the Jessie J we have grown to love.
We will be seeing a lot more of Jessie in the New Year as she has recently confirmed she will be returning to the Voice for the second season. We cant wait to see what new fashion styles and statements she will be bringing to the show next year.
She is known for her trademark poker straight blonde locks, but Heidi Klum has opted for a more unusual grey tone with some crazy extensions for Italian magazine Amica.
The 39 year old is featured on the front cover with long hair extensions in a shade of silver, a far cry from her usual style.
It would appear that this look is a one off for the super model, but grey tone aside, with the right colour matching and a little hair brushing we think Heidi would look stunning with gorgeous long thick hair extensions. What do you think?
We absolutely love Katie Piper, she is one of the most inspiring women of the decade in our opinion, and never ceases to amaze us with her courage and strength. Despite the horrific attack Katie endured, she has turned her life around and is just as beautiful now as she ever was.
Sporting her new gorgeous brunette curls Katie attended a fake tan party and wow’d with her stunning new look. She has undergone such a transformation over the last few years, and we must say that her current look is one of our favourites, understated and stunning.
What do you think of her new brunette look?
Summer is upon us, and many are now beginning to head off for their week of sun, sand and fun. A holiday wouldn’t be complete however without a brand new head of gorgeous extensions, and that is exactly what Towies Lucy Mecklenburgh has done for her annual trip to Marbs.
Sporting a variety of bikinis from her new bikini line due for release this year Lucy’s hair was considerably longer and thicker than it is on our screens during Towie Sunday and Wednesday evenings.
We absolutely love Lucy, and think her new look is stunning. Her colour is a 99J, length between 20-22 inches and we suspect she is wearing micro rings as these are the most suitable if you are planning a dip in the pool.
What do you think of her new look?
Boho chic has been in trend for quite some time, and things aren’t about to change as we enter winter. A rival to last season’s beachy look is natural fuss free waves dubbed as ‘wind-kissed’ for effortless style.
Forget worrying about the wind and a little rain, nail this look and you will be bang on trend right through until spring!
Celebs such as Leighton Meester are loving fringes this season, it’s the ideal way to re-vamp your look with little cost or effort.
Centre partings have been in trend for some time now, however moving into Autumn/Winter it looks as though we have a little more choice. Whether you choose centre or side make sure it is bold and making a statement, visible both when the hair is down and when in an up-do.
Knots in all shapes and sizes have paraded their way down the catwalks this Autumn/Winter, giving us an easy option when we just can’t decide what to do with our hair. From sleek and low to top of the head and deconstructed knots, are a must this season.
The pony trend is still going strong this season with celebs working the undone style for down time, and glamour ponys for the red carpet. They are so easy and effortless, you simply can’t go wrong.
Every year we see new and old styles emerge, and here at the key trends to keep an eye out for in 2011.
Sleek or messy, smooth or textured, the ponytail is a staple style all year round, and 2011 is no exception. Worn low like Megan Fox, or high like Lauren Conrad, you really can’t go wrong with this look.
Wave goodbye to the side sweep over look, and say hello to a flash back from the 70’s with an on trend middle parting. Celebs like Rachel Bilson and Alexa Chung look fab with their centre part, and this look can be pulled off both long and short, so get yourself down the hair dressers and move that parting for a look sure to hang around all summer and into winter.
Its so simple, yet so on trend. Ballerina buns are also great this season, however if like us you aren’t keen on that clean cut style, ruffle it up into a knot like Whitney Port and Jessica Alba.
Laid Back Waves
Worn by the likes of Rachel Bilson, Amanda Seyfried and Leighton Meester this wavy style is a great look to take straight from the beach to dinner. Worn with a middle part, use a curling tong to create loose curls, and ruffle up with your fingers to get this effortless style.
