Now that the Fashion Weeks have passed, and we have the winter months stretching ahead, it’s time to start thinking about what hair we want to be rocking for the coming season! At the moment we’ve been obsessing over the recent influx of BIG hair love. We think this is partly inspired by Chanel’s Resort 2015 show in Dubai where bigger was definitely better.
The hair for the show was crafted by Sam McKnight who has been creating increasingly bigger styles for Chanel over the past few seasons. For Spring 2013 he offered up flared-out wigs and for Fall 2014 he provided the exaggerated ponytail with strands of ribbon and tweed that padded it out even more. So for the 2015 Resort show, the model’s hair was taken to new heights!
Beyonce proves she really can rock any style and look good! Her recent water drenched ‘Bedhead’ look which had its debut in her ‘Drunk In Love’ video is imperfectly perfect. The edgy, yet classy bedhead style features a loose curl, wetlook graduated bob.. and no frizz to be seen.
It’s alarmingly clear that the ‘Bob’ is back, with plenty of celebs trading in their luscious locks for a shorter do. Lily Collins is currently rocking a long bob with soft curls. Long bobs pretty much don’t get better than this!
Fast forward 6 months and Kim K was rocking a fabulous blonde do... now she's reverted back to her signature chocolate brown hair, keeping her long wavy locks with some added super sharp, choppy layers. Beaut!
Scandal star Kerry Washington was spotted at the Oscars sporting a half up/half down do. The elegant, side parted, classic style was loosely tied and then perfectly curled down her back and over her shoulder. The style screams classic hollywood glamour, we do love it when celebs dig out an old style and make it current.
Dead straight and sleek is what Amanda Seyfried is currently working. The messy parted and slightly layered at the bottom straight do is lovely and classic, our Indian straight hair would be perfect for creating this sleek look.
Naomi Campbell is all about ‘Body’, she was recently spotted sporting a full, curly long style with a heavy bang fringe.. is the fringe making a comeback?
2014 pays homage to some old school hairstyles with a modern twist, from the catwalk to the streets, we are taking a look at what’s hot for this year’s hair style files.
A dishevelled updo with plenty of loose tangles - this look is pretty easy to create, whether it be a French roll, top bun or French twists, ensuring you leave out a few wispy strands at the front (curling with an 1 inch curling iron) will create this messy wonder.
Old world braids:
The fish plait made such an epic comeback last year; this year’s spin off is ALL things braids. Anything goes as long as there’s some kind of crossover motion involved. A messy plait resembling a peasant girl in the renaissance or a braided headband similar to a 70’s hippie, spring and summer is all about the ‘Old World Braids’.
All things gold:
Long exaggerated pony tails, wet look sweep backs and messy updo’s, all very different styles with an added futuristic twist... the addition of GOLD. Whether it be a gold headband, metal hair tie or gold flakes for effect, this seasons hottest accessory for hair is accents of gold.
Last season the ordinary ‘Ponytail’ made its debut however, this season it is back with a vengeance; think large quiffs, section rolls and off the wall Mohawks. Ponytails just got interesting.
Choppy pageboy wigs:
Wigs were all over the catwalks this season, not just any wigs though.. choppy bowl shaped, asymmetrical cut wigs. Encompassing the free and boyish look, the jagged cuts and bangs that look self-done seem to be the current phase.
They may be the oldest accessory in the book, however this season sees a welcomed comeback to an all time epic hair accessory; ‘Flowers’. From floral crowns, statement flower pins and scatters of tiny blossoms on low, messy ponytails, this summer welcomes the classic accessory back with open arms, or should we say blooms!

No matter how much one tries to style her very own hair, she can't completely change what nature has given her. Matters regarding hair quickly escalate to alarming levels once a woman starts losing hair due to the effects of aging. For a biomaterial that's supposed to grow, it has a very finite lifespan, and is often far from looking perfect.
Ladies can't just will their hairs to look beautiful; a lot of cutting, ironing, and coloring have to be done in order to achieve a desired look. What if one wants to have more hair, though? While it may be naturally impossible to grow more hair at a certain point, extensions of beautiful Brazilian hair can be attached to either the base of the hair or the scalp to complement one's natural mane without having to look artificial.
Genuine hair extensions are made from collected hairs of willing Brazilian women, and they can come in either straight or wavy variations. The rich variety of South American hair shades can impart a sun-kissed glossy look when grafted alongside natural hair. This simple feature is why many women choose Brazilian hair extensions.
Hair extensions aren't just limited to those coming from Brazil, however. Different ethnicities produce different hair colors, patterns, and shapes. Stylists and fashion enthusiasts also prefer blonde Russian manes, rich and black Indian locks, and silky Malaysian hair. Such unique hairpieces from around the world are typically sold by specialty stores like BeyondHair.
However, more than looking very natural alongside existing genuine hair, extensions can also be styled and manipulated as if it were already part of the wearer. Users are free to dye, iron, wash, and cut their extensions as they would with their real hair, to fully customize their looks. After enough styling, the end result should still be seamless and simply fabulous.
Everyone is born with hair that's unique to their race, genetic makeup and environment. Hence people can't choose what hair they want to grow up with. What they can do is have a salon style their manes, or add a hair extension that would lend body to the rest of the strands. What nature has given, fashion can greatly improve on.
