You may have fallen into some bad habits this year with your hair care or usual beauty routine, but worry not! A new year is upon us and we are free to start again with the best intentions. We’ve put together some resolutions we’ll be attempting to stick to in 2017.
Regular Visits To The Hairdressers
Keep things healthy by keeping on top of your trims. The dead ends accrued throughout this year need clearing away so you’re left with a sharper cut, and much healthier looking hair. If you’ve got hair extensions, get them refreshed to avoid the regrowth tugging at your roots and causing damage – not to mention, you’ll feel so much better with new hair.
Take Better Care of Hair Extensions
It’s so easy to be lazy about the care of your hair extensions; whether you’re treating them to simple washes or leaving clip-in extensions leaving prone to damage and tangles, there’s bound to be a more effective way to care for them. They’re an investment after all! We’ve got some great hair treatments from the likes of Moroccan Oil, and our own special Additional Lengths hair extension treatments that you can use to keep your hair nourished and looking it’s best. Which leads onto…
Always Use (Heat) Protection!
If you’re a slave to the hair dryer and electric hair stylers, you’ll need a quality heat protector in order to avoid damaging the hair. Try to go a few days without applying heat to your hair to lessen the damage and give it a chance to recover. Experiment with braids as a way of styling minus the heat.
Invest In Quality Hair Tools
If your curling wand or straighteners have been struggling throughout 2016, then the new year is the ideal time to invest in something new. Browse our range of beautiful GHD’s for professional hair straighteners you can rely on with their ceramic and contoured plates which help hair glide through effortlessly, with no stress on the hair.
Ask A Professional!

Every girl has her go-to hair product that she cannot live without and absolutely believes in. It could be a hairspray, a leave-in conditioner or simply a shampoo which leaves her hair soft and silky. We believe that there are some hair essentials that every girl needs to help her get that perfect look every time.
Not necessarily an everyday haircare product, but a quality hair treatment is definitely a must- have product – especially for those who use heated stylers regularly. Hair treatments work to restore vitality and health back into dry, damaged hair, or they can simply be used as part of a hair care routine to maintain shine. Over-processed hair can rejoice at the Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment which is easily absorbed into wet or dry hair, and is rich in antioxidants giving hair a shiny finish.
Whether you desire bohemian beach waves, or tighter, more structured curls, you’ll definitely need a high quality curling wand to help you achieve this look. Curling wands are so easy to use and we stock some great hair wands from GHD to brighten up your electrical hair styling collection. The InStyler TopStyler is another option we have here at Additional Lengths which will create enviable, bouncy curls for body and volume.
It may seem obvious but the kind of brush you use on your hair can affect how it looks and feels. If your hair gets tangled easily, a gentle brush by Tangle Teezer will work wonders to prevent damage whilst brushes due to the soft silicone bristles. For those with hair extensions, we can recommend the brush by Remi Cachet that was developed to be used on extensions; smoothing and untangling without pulling or damaging the hair.
Clip-in Hair Extensions
Even if you prefer the low maintenance hair routine, having some perfectly matched clip-in extensions on hand for special occasions is a great idea to help you change up your look when you fancy something different. Be sure to check out the clip-in hair extensions available from us at Additional Lengths for plenty of options, or speak to us directly for expert advice.
Selfies are the perfect way to capture a favourite look, memory or occasion in our lives, so looking our best in them is paramount! During the summer months there will be plenty of occasions you’ll want to capture. There are of course certain things that we’re less likely to have control over when taking pictures, such as pesky lighting levels, but at Additional Lengths we have some brilliant tips and tricks to help you get the ultimate summer selfie.
Achieve that bronzed goddess glow by learning the most effective places on the face to highlight using illuminating beauty products. As a rule, the tops of cheeks, the eyebrow arch, a sweep down the bridge of the nose and a slight dusting on the Cupid’s bow all deserve some love from a quality brand highlighter that will add some subtle shimmer to your summer makeup look.
Mermaid Hair Don’t Care!
Effortless hair styling is what warm weather and lazy days are all about. Add some shine serum or Moroccan Oil treatment by to your hair extensions for a gorgeous shine you can see your smile in.
Make your hair stand out with colourful clip in hair extensions that compliment your eye colour perfectly, or add some extra volume and bounce with half-head hair extensions that are easy to use and remove. Play around with your look by opting for a clip-in fringe for a brand new image with none of the long-term commitment.
Show off your beautiful face with the popular half-bun hair style; simply section a smaller top bit of hair, spray with products such as volume powder from Sexy Hair, and secure with a clip or hair tie for all day wear.
Know Your Best Side
Practice makes perfect, so take some time to get to know your best side. Getting ready for a big night out if the perfect time to practice your selfie poses in the mirror. The only issue is if your BFF has the same best side as you!
Stylish Surroundings & Props
Not only is the focus of one’s selfie important, but the background is also a chance to show off your surroundings. On holiday? Make sure you capture that cocktail and sunset. On a night out, show off the extravagant decor of the club. Most importantly, show off your dazzling personality!
