The Best Celebrity Hairstyle Highlights From 2018

Celebrity hairstyles never fail to give us hair envy and inspiration. Whether its a much-loved singer going for the chop for a new look, or a socialite rocking a brand new hair colour – celebs are often first in line when it comes to hair trends. There are plenty of celebrity hair highlights that are included in our 2018 hair inspiration list, so let’s take a look at some of our favourites which are bound to remain popular going into the New Year.

Bella Hadid – 60’s Fringe

It may be a clip-in fringe for a temporary transformation for a modelling campaign, but model of the moment Bella Hadid knows how to rock the feminine fringe. A lightly feathered fringe that comes just below the eyebrows is a flattering, face-framing fringe type that works well with any hair length. Bella Hadid had her fringe layered down the side of her face for a soft finish that looks fabulous with her hair pulled into a high ponytail with a bit of height at the crown for that classic 1960’s vibe.

Take a leap from this supermodel hair trend and cut in a feathered fringe for 2019, or opt for a sleek clip-in fringe for an instant change of look without the commitment!

Beyonce – Honey Highlights

Is there anyone in the celebrity world more glam than Queen Bey? Pulling off her iconic quiet sophistication, this year Beyonce lightened up the ends of her locks by opting for extra luxe human hair extensions with a soft honey balayage.

We offer full and half weft hair extensions, tape and clip in hair extensions so you can commit to the luxe hair life, or opt for clip-ins for a temporary update.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock – Green Braids

We love a girl who expresses her fun personality by experimenting with her hair, and Little Mix singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock really mixed it up this year with her recent vibrant green braids. From the stunning green hue, super long length and unravelled ends, this is a look only a strong woman can pull off – and Leigh-Anne sure knows how to work it!

Kim Kardashian – Platinum Luxury

Queen of the long dark hair Kim Kardashian took us all by surprise this year by undergoing a glamorous hair transformation by going platinum blonde. Not only did she shock with a new hair colour, but the savvy business woman also took the plunge by chopping her hair into a long bob.

No commitment, no damage to the hair and you can switch up your hairstyle in seconds! Our wigs and hair pieces range at Additional Lengths offers a whole host of options.

Selena Gomez – Nirvana Blonde

Another celebrity to adopt platinum-style locks in 2018 was superstar singer Selena Gomez. Transitioning from a dark chocolate brown shade to a nostalgic ‘Nirvana blonde’ with ash based undertones, the lighter colour really complimented Selena’s skin tone.

SS19 Hair Trends: LFW Edition

fashion week

As the dust settles on the catwalks of London Fashion Week 2018, many of us are still soaking up the beauty of the upcoming fashion trends for the next season. Without a doubt, the main focus of any runway is the latest clothing designs from the hottest brands in the world, but fashion makeup and hair has also become just as important. Today at Additional Lengths we’re recapping some of the SS19 hair trends from the fashion week events and suggesting ways to rock them as everyday hairstyles.

If you’re feeling in a bit of rut with your day-to-day hairstyle, then these SS19 hair trends are bound to perk you up with some inspiration!

Wet Look Hair

We’ll start off with the SS19 hair trend that you may want to only experiment with after a shower before reaching for the blow dryer. Calvin Klein sent models down his ‘Jaw’s themed runway with incredibly wet hair that dripped down from the ends onto the clothes, with many models displaying damp tendrils of hair clinging to their face. Hairstylist Sam McKnight was behind the eccentric look and suggests using lots of water, gel and oil to get the look at home.

For a tamer and easier to style version of the wet hair trend, we suggest taking McKnight’s advice with the products; using a brush like a Tangle Teezer and hair oil or gel to slick the hair back onto the head before hairspraying into place to avoid the ‘just stepped out of the shower’ look.

Glossy Bob

The Ashley Williams show was a whole host of different styles merged into one, with goth and 1920’s flapper girl vibes posing a curious look. BLEACH London stylist, Alex Brownsell, created beautifully glossy bobs or faux bobs on their model’s hair, with blunt fringes making a great impact on the overall look, plus the addition of diamante hair clips to bring the hairstyle more up to date. Also in this show was hair inspired by those 1990’s Trolls with a high ponytail hairsprayed up in the air, but this look may not be suitable for the office!

If you don’t have a fringe and you’re not contemplating opting for the cut any time soon, you can still recreate this London Fashion Week hairstyle by taking a curling wand by Cloud Nine and waving the hair before using hair grips to tuck the hair at the nape of the neck. This will give the impression of a bob without a pair of hair cutting scissors in sight! Get the fabulous Ashley Williams shine by gently smoothing a shine spray or serum over the hair so it will glint in the light beautifully.

Centre Parting, Low Ponytail

For a powerful hairstyle that is bound to get you feeling like a boss, take a look at the business-like SS19 hair trend from Max Mara. Fashion giant gave models centre partings with hair slicked back into a low ponytail with a leather wrap-around hair accessory before braiding the full length of the hair. Model Kaia Gerber looked every inch the glamour puss with her long braid, the contrast of the smooth hair over the crown and sides into the plait worked effortlessly. This is a great London Fashion Week inspired hairstyle for work as its smart and simple to do on a morning.

If your hair lacks the length for this fashionable long braid, we recommend opting for high quality human hair extensions from Remi Cachet. With such a fantastic array of shades and blends, you’re bound to find the perfect match for you so that you can imitate the chic Max Mara braided ponytail. Alternatively, a clip in ponytail could save the day for a temporary fix!

With a great insight into upcoming SS19 hair trends, we’re able to find ways to adapt the popular looks to suit our own style. Additional Lengths offers a huge selection of human hair extensions, hair accessories and hair care products which can be used all year round, no matter the season!

Hair Tips Summer Trends

Summer Hair Inspo: Love Island Edition

The TV show that focuses on the coupling up of lust- at-first sight partners has had us gripped all summer so far, and it’s not just the romances and break ups that have caught our attention. The guys and gals in Love Island have had their fashionable wardrobe catered for by online retailer Missguided, and with rumours of behind the scenes hairstylists on hand to create the various hair looks, we’re so envious of the glamorous hairstyles! From the luxuriously long locks of Samira to the shorter hair of Kaz, here at Additional Lengths we’re taking a closer look at our new summer hairstyle inspiration – Love Island.

Top knot

What cooler way to keep the hair off your neck and face in the blistering sun than to sweep it up into a chic top knot? Gorgeous Kaz is a big fan of the classic top knot as she regularly has her hair styled this way for evening drinks at the Love Island villa. The blonde shades at the ends and mid lengths of her hair offer a great contrast to her darker natural hair colour. Get this sleek top knot look like Kaz by using a Tangle Teezer brush to smooth out any tangles or bumps in the hair, brushing the hair together into a ponytail at the crown before taking the ponytail and wrapping it around itself and securing with a hair tie and hair grips. Beat the humidity and banish frizz with a bit of Moroccan Oillight hair oil that will tame flyaways whilst providing a shine.

A post shared by Love Island (@loveisland) on

Kaz works this summer hairstyle perfectly with one of our favourite Love Island outfits – the Bardot top. Work an off-the-shoulder top with a pair of statement earrings like the Love Island girls for that instant holiday look!

Bouncy waves

Beautiful waves in long hair can be a fabulous look all year round, but beach waves are definitely a summer hairstyle you’ll want to emulate. Love Island goddess Samira knew how to style her summer waves perfectly, adding volume to the root and around the face for hair that looked healthy and glamorous. The Love Island girls are often filmed getting ready for their romantic escapades in the dressing room and they love using straighteners and curling wands equally when it comes to creating their beachy waves. We love the ghd Classic Wave Wand when it comes to getting perfect, locked in waves that last all day long. Get shimmering waves and luxurious movement in the hair like Samira by using the wave wand by ghd and complement the look with a pair of hoop earrings for an on-trend finish.

In true Love Island outfit style, innovative bikini and swimming costume designs have been played with this year. Experiment with various cuts and find a brand new shape or creatively designed bikini, like the one Samira chose with the gold hardware, to see which you will love most on holiday. Just be aware of the potentially interesting tan lines!

High ponytail

A look that has become synonymous with Love Island has to be the high ponytail that Laura and Georgia regularly sport. It’s such an easy and versatile summer hairstyle that can look good as a full ponytail, or by dividing the hair horizontally and putting the top half into a ponytail for a half-up and half-down hairstyle. Hide the hair tie by taking a small section of the hair to wrap around the ponytail like Georgia to add an extra feature to the simple hairstyle. Get the glamorous long hair of the Love Island babes by opting for good quality human hair extensions from Remi Cachet to experience that princess inspired long hair ponytail look! With various application methods on offer, including tape hair extensions and pre-bonded human hair extensions, with Remi Cachet, all of your summer hair goals can be achieved.

Hair care on the island

With countless hours spent in the pool over the course of a two month stay, the girls of Love Island will hopefully be using hair masks and hair treatments to keep their locks looking and feeling good all summer long. At Additional Lengths, we recommend using a gentle hair brush and a nourishing hair mask from Malibu C to restore the vitality of the hair and giving it a radiant shine after the possibly damaging effects of swimming pool water. Also, spending all day in the sun can take its toll on hair so if you’re planning on soaking up the rays like the Love Island residents this summer, then take a baseball cap to wear to cover the scalp, or plait the hair to protect it from exposure to the sun. Keep suncream away from the hair too as it can discolour hair extensions.

Whoever your favourite Love Island lady is, we can bet that she will have displayed a stunning array of different hairstyles during her time gracing our television screens. From Samira’s beautifully wavy long, dark hair to Georgia’s high ponytail, Love Island has provided some fantastic hair inspiration this year! So take to the hair products available Additional Lengths and replicate your favourite look easily.

Celeb Holiday Hair Inspo 2018

With many celebs truly taking advantage of their status and indulging in multiple holidays, at Additional Lengths we aren’t complaining as it gives us plenty of summer hair inspiration! In this post we’re sharing with you some of our favourite celebrity hair looks and will be offering some simple yet effective holiday hair care tips along the way to help you keep your locks in the best condition all through the warmer season.

Ashley James

Made In Chelsea and Celebrity Big Brother babe Ashley James has become queen of the bleached bob for summer and we’re loving it! Taking her hair extensions out and self-admittedly cutting off damaged hair, she has transformed her look completely with a great, blunt cut which she styles with a centre parting. Ashley is also no stranger to playing with semi-permanent peach tones and French braids in her hair, which are both fabulous summer hair looks.

To keep Ashley’s hair looking bright and free from brassiness, but also undamaged from bleach, she goes for regular Olaplex treatments. The Olaplex hair treatment is a fantastic product for dyed blondes to use to strengthen their hair by repairing it because it works to link bonds in the hair so as to avoid breakage between salon visits. We recommend taking a bottle of Olaplex with you as part of your holiday hair care to do once a week.

Vanessa White

Former member of much missed UK girl band The Saturdays, Vanessa White is also no stranger to jetting off to warmer climes and showcasing her envious holiday wardrobe. With recent trips to the south of France, Baku and Croatia, this girl knows how to relax and see the sights! Heavenly summer fashion choices aside, like Ashley Graham, Vanessa has a long bob that she styles in various ways when she’s abroad.

A key summer hair style that can work well on all hair lengths and hair types is the classic low ponytail. This fuss-free holiday hairstyle is great for keeping cool as it keeps the hair off your face and tied back in a neat ponytail. Vanessa has slicked back her hair into a neat ponytail at the nape of her neck, leaving her free to showcase a pair of beautiful large earrings – an ideal summer hair look that is perfect for warm evenings. We would recommend using a Tangle Teezer hair brush to smooth the hair into a ponytail and Moroccan Oil hair oil to keep flyaways in check and to nourish the hair after a day in the sun.

Perrie Edwards

North East beauty Perrie Edwards is another girl band member whose fashion and hairstyles we just can’t get enough of! The Little Mix singer certainly knows how to mix it up with her style and regularly experiments with different hair looks to suit an occasion or vibe. On her latest holiday to Greece, Perrie has embraced long cool blonde hair extensions to give her perfect mermaid hair whilst she soaks up the sun.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BjkLWkll2WH/?taken-by=perrieedwards

Whether you want to add some extreme length to your hair like the glamorous Perrie Edwards, or simply would like some extra volume to play with, why not get some Remi Cachet human hair extensions for your holiday? Get the textured look similar to Perrie’s long tresses by using heated hair tools that can be easily packed into your suitcase and used to create different hair looks throughout your holiday. Use a Cloud Nine curling wand to produce different sized waves for a textured summer hair look.

Holiday Hair Care Essentials

With holidays comes the potential damage to hair from the sun and swimming pools, so it’s wise to pack a few holiday hair care essentials to see you through your trip away. Our aftercare department is a treasure trove of hair care products that are designed to refresh, nourish and treat the hair, making them ideal accompaniments to your summer hair routine. Spending time in the pool can do wonders for the soul but wreck havoc on the hair! Counteract this by using hair masks from Malibu C which will rebalance your hair and restore it to it’s lovely silky smooth finish. Those with hair extensions should tie hair up when in the pool or ocean and try to keep the hair tangle free.

4 Romantic Hairstyles Ideas For Valentines Day

Here at Additional Lengths we’re gearing up for Valentine’s Day the best way we can, by focusing on our most favourite romantic hairstyles.

Whatever your usual style, whether you want to shake it up completely for the day of love, or wish to remain true to your roots (ahem!), let’s chat about our top 3 romantic hairstyle ideas for Valentine’s Day that are simple to replicate at home. So if you plan on spending the day with your best girl friends, or are secretly hoping to be whisked away by your other half, there will be a hair look to suit your plans.

A classy chignon bun

This go-to hairstyle is perfect for a feminine, classic look that can be a sophisticated alternative to the much loved messy bun. A chignon bun can be created at any height on the head, from the back of the crown to the nape of the neck, and be as elaborate or simple as you like; it’s really up to you!

So, how do you do a chignon bun? This hairstyle is so simple to accomplish on yourself, and requires a handful of bobby pins or hair pins and firm hold hairspray to keep the bun in place. Do this with unwashed or day old hair, as freshly washed hair may be too ‘slippy’.

  • Firstly, take a comb and part your hair down the middle, smoothing it behind your hairs and gathering at the nape of the neck using both hands, so a section of hair is in each hand.
  • Next, it’s time to twist the two hair sections together and start to coil the hair in a counterclockwise circle. It can help to use your index finger in the centre to hold the bun shape in place!
  • Using your bobby pins or hair pins, secure either side of the bun before gently pulling on the hair to loosen up the knot.
  • Finally, pin the hair around the bun to keep its shape and hold, and create as much volume as you like by using a tail comb end to pull outwards the hair in the bun. Finish with firm hold hairspray, et voila!

Add some shine to a chignon Valentine’s hairstyle by smoothing the hair with a serum or shine spray such as the Smooth & Finish Serum from GHD, which will also work to keep flyaways at bay.

If a sleek, pulled back look simply isn’t your bag, just opt for a messy chignon bun with sections of hair pulled out of the bun to frame the face. Margot Robbie nailed this look with her loosely styled hair and wavy front sections, giving her the ideal hairstyle to show off a pair of drop earrings. Show off a special pair of statement earrings with this hairstyle like Margot and rock a red lip for an understated yet chic date night look for Valentine’s Day.

Sleek down ‘do

For those gals who are super low maintenance when it comes to their locks, but want to do something a little bit different for Valentine’s Day night, we recommend this on-trend evening hairstyle. Leaving your hair down, but combed straight back from your face and held in place with product, you’ve got a hairstyle straight from the catwalk! Also referred to as ‘the wet look’ this is an easy style that is also ideal for when your hair’s on it’s second or even third day.

A post shared by badgalriri (@badgalriri) on


Taking hair pointers from Rihanna is always a good move, and we simply love the slicked back hairstyle on her as it shows off the whole face beautifully. To achieve this look without looking like you’ve borrowed your little brothers hair gel, the professionals advise you to use a leave-in conditioner to get the ‘wet’ slick look. Just be sure to keep the product to the roots and half way through the mid lengths to avoid looking like you’ve just taken a dip in a swimming pool!

Luxurious waves

This hairstyle doesn’t have to be saved for a special occasion as it looks fabulous every day of the week. No matter your hair length, you can achieve a full head of pretty waves for an ultra feminine hairstyle for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’d love some loose waves or more compact waves with plenty of volume, there will be some heated hair stylers out there to give you the desired wave. For extra length and volume, we recommend adding some clip-in hair extensions from Remi Cachet to give your hair a boost before using a curling wand such as one from our Cloud Nine range to create luxurious bouncy waves.

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on


Coming from a family of good hair, Khloe Kardashian nails the luxurious waves hair look like a queen. Opting for a side parting, you’ve got more volume to one side for an old style Hollywood feel to the look, and it’s a great move if you’ve got stretched roots or balayage in your hair as it shows the depths of the tones in your hair. This hairstyle can be created for a seamless day to night look on Valentine’s Day for a truly versatile hairstyle option.

Fairytale braids

For a whimsical, uber feminine Valentine’s Day hairstyle, we adore braids as a way to introduce more texture and dimension to your hair. Again, this can be done with practically all hair lengths and types, making it a great option for everyone! If you’ve got plenty of time, plaits can even be combined with the above hairstyles; double braids taken from either side of the hair brought together over wavy hair, or smaller plaits leading to a chignon, can all work wonderfully well.


A perfect example of how to do Valentine’s Day hair on shorter hair can be taken from model Ashley James who rocks a loose side braid taken from her temple back towards the crown. Loose braids or fishtail plaits are a fashionable alternative to the traditional schoolgirl braids for a more grown up look. Add a texturising spray or a dry shampoo to your hair before braiding to ensure more grip and hold for the hair and secure with a bobby pin.

There you have our favourite four Valentine’s Day hairstyles, all relatively easy to replicate and suitable for all hair types and lengths. Tag us in your Valentine’s Day looks via the Additional Lengths Instagram so we can see your beautiful romantic hair creations!

The Best Celebrity Hair Looks From 2017

The omnipresence of the celebrity world means that we are all influenced by our favourite celebs in some way, and more often than not, it’s their envious hair and beauty that gets us talking. With makeup gurus and professional stylists at their daily disposal, celebrity hair and makeup for the red carpet or other promotional events are always on point. If you’ve ever taken a picture of a celebrity into a hair salon with hopes of having the same hairstyle (who hasn’t?), then this Additional Lengths list of the best celebrity hair looks from 2017 is for you.

We’re taking a look at some of the most talked about celebrities of 2017 and focusing on their most beautiful external quality – their hair!

Kylie Jenner

We’re sure that you’ll agree with us when we say that Kylie is queen of changing up her hair looks, and 2017 has been full of amazing hairstyles and colours. The makeup mastermind Kylie Jenner is no stranger to using wigs to switch up her hairstyles, going from her natural, dark long bob to long blonde tresses in the space of one day. Her ice blonde locks for Halloween was a key look, whilst her Kylie Jenner Cosmetics collaboration video with her older sister Khloe Kardashian saw her with stunning ash blonde long hair. However, her trademark look has got to be her beautifully dark brunette hair which she often accentuates with matching hair extensions for even more length and volume. Kylie even embraced the pastel hair colour trend in September by giving her own take on trend with a gorgeous rosé colour.

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Mirror the Kylie Jenner hairstyles by investing in a high quality human hair wig or hair on a wire product from our ranges here at Additional Lengths. Not only do they provide extra length at a moments notice, they also provide volume to lacklustre hair. Minimal commitment is required for our hair on a wire pieces – simply allow the halo of wire to fit over the head, adjust the wire to the shape of your head, and pull your own hair over the wire for a natural finish. Our Halo Hair Extensions come in various lengths and shades, so you can have Kylie Jenner hair in no time.

Ashley Graham

Flying the flag for the plus size modelling industry, American model Ashley Graham has had a great hair year. Racking up magazine covers at Vogue and Grazia, multiple fashion shows and designing her own line of beautiful lingerie, Ms Graham is inspirational in many aspects. Her go-to hairstyle that she adopts with her luxurious brunette locks is old Hollywood waves, parted at the side. Focusing on high shine, Ashley Graham’s hair looks healthy and full of life – exactly what we all hope for our own hair!

The famous model is also a fan of bohemian beachy waves that offer a low maintenance finish without compromising on the overall look. So, how do you do the perfect beachy waves? Luckily here at Additional Lengths we stock a great range of electric hair stylers to help you get those fresh off the beach loose waves. Use a Cloud Nine curling wand to create waves in the hair and let them drop naturally so the curl isn’t too tight. Muss up the hair with a texturising sea salt spray for Ashley Graham inspired hair.

Cara Delevingne

Not one to shy away from attention, this attention grabbing starlet shocked many fans with her drastic hair change in 2017. The Cara Delevingne hair crop saw her say goodbye to her infamous long dark blonde hair, and opt for a shaved head – a look that she totally pulled off effortlessly. In her 2017 Burberry campaign Cara displayed a punky bleached blonde cropped hair in a short pixie cut which showed off her signature dark brows perfectly. Our obsession with Cara Delevingne’s hair has really been taken up a step up this year, and has got to be one of our favourite celebrity hairstyles of 2017.

Ariana Grande

This superstar has really left her mark on this year, and her distinctive ponytail hairstyle is undeniably influenced 2017 hair trends. The Ariana Grande high ponytail is a classic look that she wears wonderfully, with her long thick hair tied up at the crown, and left straight or delicately curled for flattering flowing waves. Towards the end of the year, she treated her usually dark hair to a blonde transformation, though the darker locks will always be synonymous with her trademark hairstyle!

 

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

Get your own Ariana Grande long ponytail by smoothing your hair upwards and securing with a hair tie, and taking a small section of hair to wrap around the ponytail at the base for extra texture. We recommend using a clip on ponytail to achieve the extreme length Ariana is famous for, and with the slight curl at the end, it will look super natural to boot. An easy celebrity hairstyle to emulate, and a great way to look on trend without much effort – perfect!
