On Valentine’s Day we showed our partners just how much we love them. But on Sunday, March 11, it’s time to give a bit of TLC to our one true love and best friend. Yes Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if there’s anyone who deserves to be rewarded it’s our mothers.
Our mothers have seen us at our brilliant best and at our absolute worst. They have dealt with the tantrums, helped with the heartache and will always be ready to pass on their wise words.
The relationship between mother and daughter may have experienced more stormy waters than a Scottish fishing boat, but a mother’s treasure is her daughter. She will do absolutely anything for her child and now it’s time to give some of the love back.
Your mother has no doubt had to make some huge sacrifices in her life to make sure you had food on the table, clothes on your back and money in your pocket. She may have delayed getting her hair or nails done in order to make sure you were ok. Well, now it’s your chance to show her how much you respect and admire your mother for everything she has ever done.
With a custom wig, you can give your mother the look she has always dreamed of. Choose from a vast range of styles, colours and textures and leave the salon looking like a film star.
Brazilian hair extensions are one of the most desired types of natural hair products in the world. Their popularity stems from the fact that they are so versatile. They can blend in with most hair types and last a long time given the right amount of care.
Our Peruvian hair extension range is 100% natural and come directly from willing donors in Peru. The hair comes in a range of textures, including straight, wavy and curly, allowing you to be as creative with your weave as you like.
Custom wigs start from £30, Brazilian hair starts at £45 and Peruvian hair begins from £55.
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Well hit the road sister! Girls have a new BFF and it comes in the form of hair extensions.
There was a time when real hair extensions were solely for Hollywood A-listers and the filthy rich. Not anymore. Brazilian and Peruvian weaves are now two of the most popular and head-turning products on the market today.
At Beyond Hair we know the affect a weave can have on a woman. They enter the salon with their hair craving some love and affection. Once we have given them all the TLC they demand, they leave the salon full of sass and ready to turn heads wherever they go.
But if you are still debating on whether a real hair wig is the right thing for you, let me give you five good reasons on why you should let extensions weave their magic.
If you’re having trouble growing your hair past a certain point then hair extensions will be ideal for you. Get the hairstyle you’ve always wanted in minutes. Or if your hairdresser has chopped off more than you bargained for then a weave can restore your confidence. In this instance we would recommend clip-in extensions as these will allow the hair to grow naturally underneath.
Hair extensions will let your creativity run wild. Say goodbye to those days where you just tied your hair back and braved the day. Oh no, with a weave you will want to show it off to its full potential. You don’t have to go wild with curling tongs etc, the added volume, length and colour and a little effort will be enough to get all eyes on you. But if you want to be the belle of the ball then voluminous curls will certainly get the job done.
I don’t know about you but I’ve had more colours in my hair than there is in the rainbow! What can I say, I get bored easily and like a change. A good weave is an excellent chance for you to get a different look without the risk of having to wait for the colour to grow out if you hate the results.
Some girls spend an eternity getting their hair to look amazing. Unfortunately, as they have to get up an hour before the sun they may not maximise their true potential, with baggy eyes ruining the whole package. With hair extensions, you can enjoy the best of both worlds. You can have amazing hair and enjoy an extra hour in bed. Now that does sound appealing!
There are some extensions that stop your hair growing and damage your mane. Tape-ins and bondings are the worst offenders for that. Fortunately hair extensions are a damage-free addition to your natural hair.
So, have I convinced you about the benefits of a Brazilian or Peruvian weave? Talk to us direct on 0208 8893112 and lets discuss what is best for you.
You step out of our Beyond Hair London salon looking like a million dollars with your fabulous new Brazilian weave in place. You feel like a Hollywood A-lister as people on the street stand open-mouthed, adoring your glowing locks. Not only do you look amazing, you feel amazing too. But how do you ensure you get that reaction each and every day?
Here’s a short guide on how to keep those tresses in tip top condition for as long as possible.
Try and shampoo your hair between two and three times a week. Be careful though, you don’t want to rub or scrub your hair as you wash. Your weave is precious so be gentle with it. Leave-in conditioners are exceptional at keeping your extensions from drying out or getting tangled. Regular conditioners can be used daily but only apply them from the mid-shaft to the ends.
But don’t use bad shampoo
Steer clear of anything that contains sulfates. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a common ingredient found in cheap products that produces a sudsing effect. Unfortunately it is super drying to the hair, which can lead to dullness, split ends or (whisper it) a compromised bond. Heavy conditioners and oils are also products that should be given the brush off.
We encourage you to brush your hair daily, but please ensure you use the right type of brush. A special hair extension loop brush is perfect for those wanting to protect their natural locks and the lifespan of their extensions. Whatever you do, always brush in a downward motion. Slowly start at the ends of your hair and aim to get rid of all the tangles. Once they are removed then start working your way up.
Never brush your hair when wet
There are some things in life you should never do. You should never ignore your parents. You should never ask a lady her age and you should never brush your hair extensions when wet. The strain on the actual bond can cause the weave to weaken prematurely. Also, regular nylon and bristle brushes can pull on your tangles, which can cut into the life shorten the life of your weave.
Choose a quality pillowcase
Not only will swapping your pillowcase from cotton to silk or satin enable a better night’s sleep, it will also be beneficial for your extensions. Due to their texture, silk or satin pillowcases will not catch on your hair at night as much as cotton. Failing that you can also tie your hair up in a bun before bed to stop the extensions from getting tangled.
Don’t go to bed with wet hair never go to bed with wet hair. This definitely applies to those rocking extensions. But that doesn’t mean you should blast your hair with the highest heat on a blow dryer. As bad as having too much heat on your hair is, your extensions can’t absorb the benefits of your oils from your scalp, so they’ll just dry out and be prone to frizzing. Also a ponytail may seem like the most practical thing to do with your extensions before bed, but please refrain from doing so. Ponytails can add collective mass on your bonds, causing them to weaken.
So if you want to remain looking and feeling like a superstar just follow these tips and give your hair the love and attention it deserves.

Brazil is famed for its football, carnival atmosphere and its sexy samba beats. Peru meanwhile is probably most known for giving us Paddington Bear. However, both countries are leading the world for hair extensions.
Unfortunately, not all women are blessed with fabulous hair, but that shouldn’t prevent us from looking anything short of glorious. Hair styles come and go, and the “in” colours change like the seasons, but there is one accessory that is not going away any time soon … extensions.
Brazilian and Peruvian hair are the hottest weaves on the UK market and it’s easy to see why. Boasting a mixture of curly, wavy and straight styles to choose from, these weaves are thick, bouncy and can cope with everything the British weather can throw at them. It begs the question, why wouldn’t you have one?
However, how do you know what weave to go for?
Brazilian extensions are soft, naturally wavy and very durable. Because of those attributes it can fit any style. They are extremely luxurious, with a lot of body and natural shine.
Thanks to the density of virgin Brazilian hair, you may not need as many bundles as you would normally to create a full look. It’s also less likely to frizz than other hair types due to its natural density.
Brazilian hair is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful types available. It is a perfect solution for those who crave flawless, long glistening tresses but are fed up of having weak or short hair.
The major advantage of this weave is its low maintenance. It is very easy to style, making it a popular choice for those with not a lot of time and a lot of responsibilities.
Over the past few years Peruvian hair has been gaining ground on its South American counterpart, and it’s easy to see why. It may be coarser than the Brazilian variety, but Peruvian hair offers far more colours. And because of its natural fullness and body, fewer bundles are needed to complete a full weave.
Peruvian hair is one of the most versatile products on the market. Whether you are going for a sleek and straight style or seeking something shorter and edgier, it presents you with the opportunity to experiment. Its versatility also means you can spend less time primping and more time on enjoying life.
Given the correct amount of TLC, the Peruvian weave will last far longer than the alternative options and blends well with your own hair.
If you are looking to achieve a soft and natural look then Peruvian hair may well be your best option.
So Brazilian or Peruvian? Most of the time it's solely down to personal preference and budget. However, our stylists are always on hand to give you their skilled advice. And no matter what style you opt for you can be assured of a first class and professional service from us.
Brazilian extensions start from £45.
Peruvian extensions start from £55.

It’s official…..the children are back to school, the nights are getting darker, and everyone is wondering how long they can hold out before putting the heating on. Yes it’s that time again it’s Autumn.
So it’s time to dig out the warm jumpers, start thinking about whose house you are going to for Christmas but most importantly, what Autumn hair style you are going to rock.
At Beyond Hair we have seen that the choice of colour tends to be auburn, dark brown or natural black and the lengths start at 12” to keep the neck and ears warm in the colder evenings. But that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. You can opt for some highlights or how about two shades of brown to create an ombre look.
We find that Autumn and Winter are when most of our customers opt for a lace frontal style. It allows you to fully protect your hear from heat damage whilst adding versatility to your look. If you haven’t tried out one of our frontals yet, we suggest you try it out this Autumn. They come in a variety of middle, side or freestyle partings and they can be dyed in any colour.
Or perhaps you refuse to accept the Autumn season is here with a bang so what about a beautiful shade of purple or green under natural black. That way the colour will peek through as your hair naturally flows and sways.
Either way autumn doesn’t have to be doom and gloom. At Beyond Hair we can recommend the perfect Autumn style for you so why don’t you pop in for a consultation.
Hope to see you soon x
