Fashion Week’s hair trends

15 Sep

As London Fashion Week gets started it’s a chance to see how high fashion thinks we should be styling ourselves for the coming months. Stripped back looks, plenty of texture and unusual ways to wear topknots, we’ve already had a hint of what’s to come from New York Fashion Week.

Here are the top hair looks we spotted at Dream Girl.

The low loop

Low ponytails have been popular with the fashion brigade for the past year, and we saw them on catwalks this time last year too. At Victoria Beckham’s New York show, the long low ponytail gets a 2018 twist. A loop in the ponytail just adds a little bit more shape and curiosity to the style. For those who need a little added length, a ponytail hair extension will help recreate this style.

The Half Up-Do

Match this style with a crisp white t shirt and you will have mastered the VB signature style for next spring. A slightly more sophisticated look for the half up do, it keeps the hair’s natural shape and lift, without looking too done. It couldn’t be easier to recreate, either. Just take sections of hair from the side temples and just behind the ears. Tie together low, only just above the nape of the neck. Hair extensions will help add a little extra length, or volume at the crown so the style doesn’t fall flat.

Is it a braid, is it a ponytail? At Fenty x Puma, this long ponytail had an intricate twist to bring it bang up to date. Start by adding a side parting and slick hair with serum. Gather into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Take a section of the hair and plait tightly. Secure at the ends. Plait the ponytail, using this braid so that you can see the plait as it weaves and folds underneath the sections. Tie at the bottom. You’ll need lots of hair for this so clip on hair extensions will help bulk out fine hair.

The new bun

At Badgley Mischka the ballerina bun gets a very modern twist, and it’s perfect for anytime of day. Slightly dishevelled, but just enough, start with dry hair and do a little back combing at the crown to add lift. Put the front into a middle parting. Take sections of the hair and pin back to the nape of the neck – tying into a ponytail will reduce the lift and make it look too uniform. Take the ponytail lengths and twist and pin into a bun. A few strands that fall out won’t matter.

Go long, go glam

Dream Girl knows that with great length comes great versatility

At the Global Gift Gala this week the celebrities were out in force and their hair was looking sensational. From Eva Longoria to Victoria Beckham – who are best buds on and off the red carpet – they showed how longer locks can be more versatile and give you more of a chance to play around with different styles.

Hair extensions are the easiest way to add length and volume and we’re pretty sure we’ve seen a few on the red carpet. The very finest extensions, Remi Silky, are 100% human hair, sourced ethically and then carefully treated. With over 80 colours on offer, Dream Girl can help you to find the perfect match so that hair extensions blend in seamlessly with your own locks.



Once you chosen the right shade and you’ve visited your salon to ensure they are fitted properly, you can start styling.

Take inspiration from Eva Longoria and so for a slick and chic swept back style. The middle parting and shiny finish puts all the focus on her beautiful bone structure and wow-factor eyes. A ponytail hair extension can create the same effect. Just curl the ends under, twist and pin to achieve maximum glam with this bun that sits just at the nape of the neck. You can wear hair looser in a ponytail.

Next up Victoria Beckham’s style is pure red carpet. The parting is slightly off centre and hair looks thick and healthy. The volume at the roots helps to give it a lift. Achieve extra bounce with a blow dry and backcombing. Keep hair smooth and straight at the roots, curling under at the tips to achieve this look.

These two brunette beauties we’re the only ones showcasing how hair extensions can transform your style. Pixie Lott uses a bouffant style to add a glamorous finish. Use extensions for length and volume then backcomb hair at the crown to achieve this finish.



Straight, sleek and glossy is the watchword for X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger who uses a middle parting to great effect in a style that looks simple but hair needs to be in tip top shape to recreate it. Treat your locks to a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment to make sure locks are as shiny as possible and radiate health.

No matter what finish you’re looking for, hair extensions can help to give your style a lift. With longer and thicker locks you’re able to experiment with more styles and showcase a red carpet look that’s all your own.
