What are we doing with our hair this autumn?

26 Oct

At Dream Girl we like to keep our finger on the fashion pulse. Knowing what looks are on the catwalk and helping you work them into your own beauty routine is a big part of what we do.

Most years what you see on the runways in spring and summer are very different from what you see in autumn and winter. Except for this season there’s something a little strange happening. There are a few looks that were big in the spring and summer, we get to autumn and winter and lo and behold they’re still here.

Loose wavy textures, sleek side partings, long pony-tails and braids. We feel like we’ve been telling you about them forever. There are a few small changes for the colder weather and these are styles that work just as well in the daytime as they do in the night-time.

Here is our guide to how to bring your style bang up to date

Loose wavy hair

A textured long look is one of the favourite styles for designers this season. It’s ideal for those with naturally wavy hair. If you don’t then you can always bring in a little texture with Dream Girl’s Waves and Curls range of hair extensions which can help you add a little shape. All you need to do is add a little DG Shine Serum and hair looks healthy, vibrant and straight off the catwalk.

Long pony-tails

We’ve had cheerleader pony-tails, we’ve had side pony-tails. The look right now is for an “everlasting” ponytail that’s sleek and shiny. Part the hair in a deep side parting. Smooth over any wisps or ends with some serum. Tie hair into a low pony-tail at the nape of the neck. If you have straight hair you just need to comb. If your hair is wavy then it’s about making hair as de-frizzed as you can so coax those curls into neat waves. If your hair isn’t quite long enough then try a Dream Girl Pony Extension which clips onto your natural hair and provides additional length. Match the shade as close to your own as possible.

The half-up braid

Braids have been a fixture on stylists’ arsenal all year and they’re not going anywhere. Bring the look up to date though by turning a braid into a half up-do. Part hair in the centre of the hair and comb gently. Begin each braid at the parting and work along to behind the ear, like you’re creating a headband. Fix the ends behind the ear and then begin on the other side. If you’re not confident on your ability to create a braid then use Dream Girl Clip’N Go Extensions, braid and simply clip onto your natural hair. Alternatively use a Pony Extension, braid and then clip on.

The up-do

An up-do is the perfect antidote to a bad hair day. We all get them. A bun, side-bun, braided bun; it’s a versatile look that you can experiment with and see what suits you. For an up-to-date look begin behind the right ear. Twist your hair and pin it until you get to the other side of the head. Secure and backcomb slightly. Then twist the ends into a messy bun. A few strands here and there are you’re ready either for a day at the office or a night out with the girls.

    I drop a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a site or I have something to add to the conversation.
    It’s a result of the fire communicated in the post I
    read. And after this article What are we doing with our
    hair this autumn? | DREAM GIRL Hair Extensions. I was moved enough to drop a thought :
    -) I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it only me or does it seem like some of the comments appear like they are written by brain
    dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing at other social
    sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you list
    all of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
