Party season: Refresh your outfit

As the party season is well and truly upon us, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to be wearing, how you’re going to be switching from day to night, and other important aspects of the celebrations. Whether your party has a specific dress code or you’re just catching a few with some colleagues after work, Additional Lengths can help plan your outfit.

Here, we have a fantastic selection of clip-in hair pieces, such as buns and fringes, that you can use to instantly transform your look completely. If you want to go for a sleek yet sophisticated look or a messy up-do, we have the tools you need to succeed. Listed below is some of our favourite ways to change up your look.

Remi Cachet Wavy Wrap

Because this isn’t a wrap made from synthetic hair, you can style it as you please, whether you want to go straight or curly – the choice is yours! We’ve picked the Remi Cachet Wavy Wrap, made from 100% human hair, to help you change your look with the flick of a switch. Our customers have used this to create an elegant up-do without having to worry about damaging their natural hair with heat, and also as a piece to wear every day. It is available in a wide selection of colours too, so you’ll be able to match it with your real hair.


Clip-in fringes

The Additional Lengths Clip-in Fringe (Side Sweep) is also made from 100% human hair, which means you can style it as you wish. Whether you want to try out bangs before you commit to them or simply need a quick hair fix, these are what you need. We also stock the Additional Lengths Clip-in Fringe (Classic Bangs) for extra versatility.


Synthetic hair

Real human hair is great for pieces that you want to be able to style yourself, wash like your regular hair and keep for a long time, but if you are only looking for a clip-in for one occasion or a short period of time, we recommend synthetic hair. This will provide you with an instant quick fix without having to worry about styling the hair, as it is already pre-styled. Find more of our hair pieces here on our website.

Awaken your hair force

It’s THE film to see and THE must-have toys for this Christmas, Star Wars is all around us right now.  Even if you are not a fan you will know Princess Leia is one of the most iconic hairdo’s of all time so we thought we would have a look at some of the looks from the films and what you can take for your own hair to join in the fun.

We’ve harped on about plaits, braids and buns all year and Princess Leia combines all these beautifully.  There are many tutorials on You Tube to get the infamous ‘buns’ and you can also see a great How To for the halo braid by our friends at Layered here.  We also spotted these other great Princess Leia looks the high bun with plait wrapped around and bun with two looped plaits – both work perfectly with long hair.   For a slightly more modern twist, tease your hair around your face to create wispy bits and then your bun or plait to create an undone effect.

It looks like the new female lead, Rey aka Daisy Ridley, will soon be a hair icon too. Not only is her off-duty texture lob on point, but her funky looped small buns is very Rita Ora-ish so that get’s our thumbs up and an easy style to re-create for you casual days. However, Daisy is getting high praise for her red carpet hair do’s with this simple twisted chignon and well-placed kirby grips.  Christmas party or office day, this is definitely the new do for this week and beyond.

So you’re all set for the premier this week – may the force be with you and your hair do!  Don’t forget to share your snaps with us on social media we’d love to see them.

Your Ultimate Party Hair Guide

’Tis the season to have lots of fun with your locks and party!  So with that in mind here are our top five styles to try.

Tousle – It’s all about tousled hair right now.  Immy Waterhouse looks effortless with this look at last weeks Fashion Awards and beach babe Kate Hudson looks sensational!   Adding plenty of volume from our Ultra Tips or Super Weft  are great for this and to get the right level of tussle our friends at Layered Mag have created a How To Video.  Just time to ‘tussle’ on the dance floor now.

The Pun – It’s a combination of a ponytail, bun and knot.  Think Rooney Mara.   Here’s a great video from the team at Glamour to show you how to create this in minutes.   Just for some fun we found these funny hairdressing pun’s  – enjoy!

Ponytails – Get creative – super sleek it Kim K style, twist it, bubble it from the catwalk or add beehive for some volume and lift as well as channelling your inner Bardot . Create a great undone look by using our Wavy Wrap or accessories with a pretty ribbon or clip.

Braids – Always on trend but try teasing the hair out for a more undone effect known as pancaking. It really is the name of this trend – check it out here.  Hair icon Blake Lively showed us just how to do it.

Glitter – we can’t resist sparkle can we.  So whilst Kylie Jenner changed her hair colour yet again, we recommend adding some glitter this Christmas.
