Top styles for 2012

30 Dec

Merry Xmas! Best wishes from Dream Girl Hair Extensions

Your head to toe transformation for 2012 is ready to read. Good news for those with hair extensions a big trend for the next twelve months is long and luscious hair. If you have short hair and want to experiment, book in with a stylist now or have a look at our Clip’N Go Hair Extensions range.

Here is Dream Girl’s guide to the looks for 2012, and how you can recreate them


Feminine and Romantic

Who does it suit? Everyone

What’s the keyword? Soft waves and long locks

Think a girly look, soft curls and voluminous dos with gentle waves. It’s designed to create a feminine silhouette. This look is easily recreated with Hair Extensions, either those you sew in or glue or Clip’N Go extensions so you can recreate on a night out. You’ll need plenty of volume. If you’re looking for a long-lasting solution talk to your stylist about hair extensions. If you want 100% Human hair that is a s closely matched to your own shade for a natural look explore Dream Girl’s Colour Comparator.

Style hair using a brush with soft natural bristles and a hairdryer that isn’t too hot. Style dry hair by weaving and coiling around the brush. Blow gently on the hair to achieve a soft wave. Alternatively look at Dream Girl’s selection of Hair Extensions with a gentle wave or curl.


Bangs and fringes

Who does it suit? Straight fringes if you have a heart shaped or rounder face, side swept for those with a squarer jawline

What’s the keyword? Funky Rock chick

A bang has been a must-have for a few seasons now but you might say it’s been on the fringe (sorry). 2012 is the year the fringe comes out in force. It’s an easy way to restyle and is great for those with longer locks as it gives you look some oomph. Style hair in the same way you usually would. For a straight fringe, you usually go for a middle parting, so if you are fitting Clip’N Go Hair Extensions make sure the look is balanced on each side. A side swept fringe works with either a middle or side parting. Your stylist should be able to cut in a fringe and most offer free fringe trims to keep it the right length. Once you have styles your hair, blow dry the fringe until it is all facing the same direction. Use a smaller brush to control. For those with a widow’s peak that changes the direction of the hair, work on the fringe first before it dries. Control with hairspray.


Vintage waves

Who does it suit? Anyone with a tea dress or vintage inspired wardrobe

What’s the keyword? Hollywood Glamour

Hollywood of the forties and fifties just screams elegance and style. Expect a vintage in spired look to be popular this year. For those of us with poker straight hair, we could turn to the curling tongs but a much easier idea to opt for extensions. Dream Girls range of Clip’N Go extensions with Waves and Curls are ideal for along and wavy look. For a Victory Roll (a key look of the forties) you’ll need a curler, some pins and hairspray. Use a front section of hair and coil around the curler, fixing into place with spray. Leave for as long as you can and then un-coil. Curl the hair around your fingers now that it’s been trained and secure with pins and spray. This style can be done slightly to the side and is an easy day to day style that keeps hair of the face while looking fabulous. Match with a V for Victory.

    Thanks for sharing it. I think bangs and fringes are always in season and I do agree myself that they look best on heart shaped and round faces. I personally love getting lots of fringes as it styles you for that daily look without much effort. Hair extensions and few fringes is all you need sometime for that casual yet glamoorous ‘long-locks’ look.

    Hay chaqueta caliente abajo, y luego el frío y la forma, por lo que la nieve bajo más severa! Los recuerdos pueden ser la miseria, como llevar pantalones abajo en caso de frío! Ya sea al sur o al norte, en los últimos días son la muerte fría. Pero no encontraron papel de la hermana, día frío, siendo el Sur no nevó, diga lo que?

Las bajas temperaturas continuarán durante mucho tiempo, tienen una chaqueta de papel de la hermana de sangre fría también, listos para la batalla que dura, armados fuertemente para enfrentar el invierno!
