How To Get The Perfect Lob Hair?

How To Get The Perfect Lob Hair?未命名-3The ‘Lob’, (meaning long bob), is a look that’s been around for quite a while now, but initially only sponsored by the likes of quirky celeb fashionistas such as Alexa Chung and Fearne Cotton. More recently, however, it’s become more and more of a fashion statement and is being adopted by an ever-increasing amount of big names.

Taylor Swift, Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lawrence and Lucy Hale are just a few among other celebs to have taken on this new,trendy look. Light and easy for the summer seasons and easily maintained in the cold winter weather, it’s a solid all-rounder and is said to suit any face shape/hair type!lucy hale lob.未命名-1

This cut is said to elongate the neck, whilst drawing more attention to the face and making the hair appear fuller and thicker. For those of you yearning for a change, yet nervous to get ‘the chop’, a lob might just be the solution for you. It’s not quite the commitment of a full on bob or pixie cut, however it’ll certainly give you a fresh, edgy look without having to cut the whole lot.

The key feature of the ‘lob’ is that the ends of the hair are full, thick and very blunt. To pull off this statement look, your hair must be thick and healthy, otherwise your beautiful vision of a full bodied head of hair will be, in reality, a limp shoulder length number- somewhat like your mum might’ve made you have for a new school year. Not the sophisticated look we aspire to. kylie jenner lob未命名-2

So how do we achieve a flawless ‘lob’?

…With hair extensions, of course!When many think of hair extensions, their instant association is with long length and glamorous curls, however hair extensions have been effectively used for many years to add volume to thin or fine hair, and the lob is a perfect fit for this. By simply adding a half head of hair extensions and having them cut into a lob, you can achieve that beautiful blunt finish with ease.72890

Why Do My New Hair Extensions Hurt?

Why Do My New Hair Extensions Hurt?未命名-1

If you are new to hair extensions and have recently had a set fitted, you may be wondering if it is normal for your head to feel sensitive after the fitting. This is an incredibly common question, as many of us suffer from a sensitive scalps, and the installation of a new set of hair extensions can cause this to become a little uncomfortable in the first few days of the fitting.

Here we shall go through what is and isn’t to be expected in terms of discomfort after a hair extension fitting, and possible solutions for you.未命名-3

New Hair Extensions Can Take A While To Adjust To

When hair extension are first fitted, on the day of the installation the bonds will be placed close to your scalp so that they are secure, and will last you 3-4 months whilst they slowly grow down.  The extension should be placed just far enough away from the scalp so that it can move in every direction and not be restricted, and they should lay pendulously (flat against the head) without sticking out at all.  By placing the hair extensions in such a way, your hair extensions should cause you minimal discomfort, however each and every client is different, and some will experience a settling in period for them to get used to the hair extensions which can be mildly uncomfortable.  Many describe this sensation as being somewhat similar to having tied your hair in a tight ponytail for the day, where the scalp has become tender from the pressure of the style.  With hair extensions this is a perfectly normal sensation, and will subside within a matter of days once your scalp has adjusted and returned back to normal.

Why Can New Hair Extensions Cause discomfort?

There are a number of different elements that come into play that could cause mild discomfort for the first few days of your hair extension fitting.  These include your scalp being sensitive to the new weight of the hair, your scalp being sensitive to the attachment method, (e.g. a micro ring), or your hair extensions being slightly too tight.  In most cases, and where low to mild discomfort is experienced, this is perfectly normal and not anything to worry about.devushka-profil-makiyazh-make (1)

Are Your Hair Extensions Causing Sever Pain And Discomfort?

If you have read the above and believe your hair extensions to be more than mildly uncomfortable, causing you pain, this may be due to an incorrect fitting.  It is important to identify whether or not you are experiencing mild discomfort which is normal, or significant discomfort, as the latter will need to be corrected whereas mild discomfort is to be expected and will work its self out.  If you have experienced pain that has not subsided over a 3 day period, or are genuinely finding the hair extensions very uncomfortable, then you will need to look for a cause to allow you and your hair extensionist to find a solution to help you as quickly as possible.

What Should I Do If My Hair Extensions Are Uncomfortable

If you believe your hair extensions are painful and that this is more than a typical adjustment period, we would advise you to seek an appointment with your hair extensions as soon as possible to have the hair extensions corrected so that they are comfortable for you.  It may only be a very small adjustment that is required, however it is better to be safe and have the extensions assessed by a professional if you are ever at all concerned.双色发72890

Revitalising Hair Extensions – How To Repair Damaged Hair Extensions

Revitalising Hair Extensions – How To Repair Damaged Hair Extensions7Human hair extensions by their very nature are a delicate product.  They are grown from the human head, and therefore once cut to be made into hair extensions they no longer receive the necessary nutrients our scalp produces to keep them healthy by themselves.

For this reason, it is incredibly important to follow an aftercare routine which is suited to your human hair extensions to ensure they remain in silky soft condition.

But what happens if you do make a mistake in looking after your hair extensions? Can they be fixed?  Here we outline ways in which you can revitalise your hair extensions if they have been neglected.

The Importance Of Correct Hair Extension Aftercare

Firstly, prevention is always the best cure, therefore if you are new to hair extensions it is worth reading up on advice aimed at caring for your hair extensions.  Check out our top tips for keeping your hair extensions in perfect condition here.未命名-3

How To Fix Damaged Hair Extensions

Contrary to popular belief, if your hair extensions have become damaged due to the incorrect aftercare routine, they can still be rescued, so there is no need to panic.  Here are our top tops on how to revive your hair extensions.

What Caused Your Hair Extensions To Become Damaged

Firstly, before you can begin the healing process you will need to acknowledge what led to the damage in the first place.  If you have been using a shampoo that is not recommended for hair extensions, throw it in the bin!  If you have been swimming regularly, consider a technique that minimises the time your hair spends in the water.  Whatever the issue, by recognising the cause this  will help to prevent any further damage, and will allow your hair extensions to begin to recover.未命名-2

Intensive Hair Extension Treatments

  • The first step you will need to take in order to revitalise your hair extensions is to rehydrate them.  The best method for doing this is through the use of an intensive treatment such as a hair oil.
  • Applying an oil is the best route to revitalising your tired hair extensions, however doing this once most likely will not be enough.  You will need to commit to a few treatments to reap the rewards, and the more times you apply any treatment to your hair extensions the more the quality will improve.

If Your Hair Extensions Are Damaged You Need To Allow Them Time To Recover

In order to heal your hair extensions, you are going to need to allow some time for your treatments to do their magic, and therefore you will need to give your hair a styling break to ensure this can happen as quickly as possible.  Try to air dry your hair extensions, and also stay away from the heated tools temporarily.  Again, as with the treatments above, the longer you can do this for the better and faster your hair will heal.巴西发帘72890

From ‘Bronde’ to ‘Sombre’

From ‘Bronde’ to ‘Sombre’

未命名-2

At the start of the summer season, we discussed an up and coming more natural trend, ‘Bronde’.

On  VMA’s we noticed an adaptation of this, combined with ombre; creating a new summer/autumnal trend. Introducing… Sombre!

 

 

What is Sombre?

Sombre is a far more delicate, natural approach to the classic ‘ombre’ look that has been popularly sponsored over the years by celeb names such as Miley Cyrus, Caroline Flack and Kylie Jenner… Out with the old and in with the new! Sombre is perhaps slightly less dramatic- however no less gorgeous and we think it’s the perfect look for the fast-approaching change of season. Much like Bronde and Ombre, Sombre relieves the hair of heavy peroxide and is therefore easier to maintain and manage. Showcased on the shoulders of numerous stars at the VMA’s, it’s the perfect match for you if you’re looking for an understated, sophisticated new look.未命名-1

As demonstrated by Liz Hernandez and Lily Aldridge, Sombre is the perfect way to compliment a modest outfit by drawing attention to the face, contrasting beautifully with a black dress. Gigi Hadid went for a slightly different approach, teaching us all how to be brave (in the right way!) by complimenting her luscious locks with a dazzling yellow number- it all seems to work! Austin Butler also sported this look on the night with a black suit jacket and white shirt, if it works for him it works for us!

Get The Look

You may have already heard about XCsunny’s selection of Ombre extensions, but have you heard about our new Mixed Colour hair extensions? By combining the two, you can easily craft this stunning new look!  By blending our Mixed Colours in with our Ombre range and your own hair, its easy to create this soft transition. A great example of this is our 1b/6 dip dye, which can now be mixed with our 1b/6 mixed colour, creating a beautiful and effortless sombre look for your clients.black-top-color-sombre-to-brown-color-for-sombre-curly-long-fuller-hair-looks-

Maintaining your Sombre Look

Visually maintaining your sombre look is easy, there’s no need to worry about roots- roots make it work! The key here is to keep it all as gradual, subtle and as natural as possible. We all know that lightening darker hair will naturally weaken it- therefore by offering your clients sombre through the use of hair extensions instead of colouring their own hair this look can be achieved with no damage to the natural hair.

Just remember however that hair extensions need a little extra TLC, therefore washing with hair shampoo and conditioner and using a soft brush such as our detangling brushes to prevent tugging and tearing the hair will help to keep the hair extensions in great condition. Top tip- leave the conditioner to soak the ends of your extensions for a few minutes to achieve a silky smooth look.巴西发帘72890

Locks of Love – How to Make Your Hair Smell Amazing All Day Long …

Locks of Love – How to Make Your Hair Smell Amazing All Day Long …未命名-3

We pay so much attention to the looks of our locks that we sometimes forget about the smell of them. After all, most people don’t come close to us to smell our hair, anyway. However, you never know when a cutie will lean in to whisper to you. That means the more delicious your hair smells, the better. If you’ve never really thought about the odor of your hair, here are a few ways to make it smell amazing all day long:

BRUSH YOUR HAIR TO GET RID OF DIRT

Brushing your hair does more than keep it smooth and tangle-free. It also makes sure that there’s no dust or dead skin sticking to it. So the more you brush it, the better your chances are that it will smell great all day long.

PUT LAVENDER OIL OR JASMINE OIL ON YOUR HAIRBRUSHAngela-Highsmith

There are specific types of oils that are healthy for your hair and will make it smell absolutely amazing.

The best types to use are lavender oil or #jasmine oil, which have delicious scents.

All you have to do is put a little on your hairbrush and then brush your hair with it.

If you’re worried about ruining your brush, then just use your hands instead.

 

INVEST IN A SCENTED HAIRSPRAY

If you hate the smell of your regular hairspray, head to the store to buy a new brand. There are different types that are actually scented. Find a smell that appeals to you, so that when you spray your hair into place, you’ll also be making yourself smell amazing. It kills two birds with one stone.

BUY SHAMPOO WITH A DELICIOUS SCENT

You have to wash your hair, no matter what, so you might as well use a great smelling shampoo and conditioner. If you do, then there will be a noticeable difference. Haven’t you ever stepped out of the shower and had a friend or #boyfriend comment on how amazing you smell? That’s all because of your shampoo!

USE LEMON JUICE IN YOUR HAIR

Lemon juice is healthy for your hair, so if you like the smell of it, you can add it to your hair. That way, you’ll have the scent on you all day long. How do you go about this? Just grab a lemon or two, juice it, and apply it to your gorgeous hair.未命名-2

SOAK YOUR HAIR IN ROSE WATER

Rose water smells delicious, which is why you might want to soak your hair in it. It’ll assure that your locks get saturated with a specific scent. You won’t even have to put on perfume after using rose water because you’ll already smell amazing.

STAY AWAY FROM HEAT TO AVOID HAVING YOUR SCALP SWEAT

Try not to spend too much #time outdoors when it’s burning hot out. If you do, then you’re going to sweat Even though you’ll probably be more concerned with your underarms, it’s possible for your scalp to sweat as well, and you don’t want that to happen. You don’t need to spray your hair with sticky perfume in order to have it smell nice.

All you need to do is follow one or two of these tips.Do you have any additional advice for keeping your hair fresh?巴西发帘72890

How to Put on Your Hair Extensions …

How to Put on Your Hair Extensions …未命名-3

Many women wish for hair that is fuller and longer .Luckily, today we can achieve that in a matter of minutes with hair extensions. If you have never tried hair extensions you might feel a little intimidated by the idea of adding luscious locks. Don’t worry, putting on and caring for hair extensions isn’t as hard as it seems.

START AT THE BACK

To put extensions in you will want to start by sectioning off the hair at the nape of your neck.Section off the hair from ear to ear. If you have fine hair, you might want to tease your hair at the base to give the extensions a little something more to hold on to. Put a medium clip in here.

MOVE UP

Come up above your ears and section off again. This will be right above your ears along the widest part of your head, so be sure to use your wide set of extensions here. Again, tease the base of your hair if you are worried about them falling out.未命名-5

NEXT PIECE

You should have one more wide section of extensions. This one will go just under the crown of your head. Section off the hair and clip in. I’ve noticed it is best to start by attaching the center clip in place first and then doing the sides.

CREATE MORE SIDE PIECES

  • Some beauty experts suggest cutting down a larger section of hair extensions to create side pieces.
  • Then cut between the clips to create smaller sections that are perfect for adding length and #body to the side of your head.未命名-4

ADD THE SIDES

It is important to remember when you are clipping in the side pieces that you place them a little further back, but not too far. You still want to add fullness to the front, but you don’t want them to be easily detected by someone else. Also be sure to add the same number of pieces to each side of your head and in roughly the same places so one side isn’t fuller than the other.

STORE THEM CORRECTLY

  • When you take your extension out of your hair, you want to make sure you store them correctly.
  • The better care you take now, the longer they will last. Don’t just throw them in a drawer or your bag. Gather all the pieces together and brush them out. Gather them together at the base with a hair tie and then twist the length loosely together. Fold them up and gently place them in the box or container they came in.

PREVENT TANGLES

Chances are your hair is slightly damaged. It’s not as smooth and silky as your extensions. When you wear extensions, your hair rubs against the extension creating friction and causing tangles. Keep a small brush with you and brush through the tangles as often as possible.巴西发帘72890

AN EASY HALF UP BRAID TUTORIAL FOR NATURAL CURLY HAIR

AN EASY HALF UP BRAID TUTORIAL FOR NATURAL CURLY HAIR未命名-1

The hardest part of styling curly hair for me is the front layers. This easy half
up braid tutorial lets your pin back the hair from around your face so that you’re not constantly tucking your hair behind your ear all day long. If you’re a natural curly hair like me, this simple braid tutorial is perfect for you.

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Small hair elastic

STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:未命名-2_副本

  1. Create a part on the right side. You can find out how to style curly hair here.
  2. Start your braid next to your part. Take a small section of hair and split it into three. We’re doing a Dutch braid which means you cross the left section under the middle, then the right under the left. Add some hair to the next section and cross that under the middle.
  3. Continue the Dutch braid to your temple. Follow your hairline , adding in hair to both sides of your braid until just above your ear.
  4. Finish in a normal braid. Curve your braid around and stopping adding in hair to finish in a normal braid (plait).
  5. Link at the back. Take a piece of hair from the right side of your hairline (around your temple) and combine it at the back with your braid. Secure it with a small clear elastic.
  6. As always, I like to stretch out the braid a little, but that’s it!

STYLING TIPS

  • I like to work with my curls when creating styles in my naturally curly hair. What I mean is that I add in sections to the braid depending on the size and shape of my curls. If you break up a curl it makes your hair frizz so add in whole curls wherever possible.
  • If your hair is really thick, this half braid tutorial would work really well in your hair. However, if you’re not you can add some hair extensions!双色发72890

How to Get Nina Dobrev’s Golden Globes Hair

How to Get Nina Dobrev’s Golden Globes Hair未命名-1

Riawna Capri created Nina’s soft, gorgeous updo for the 2016 Golden Globes. Below, we give you the details from Riawna Capri on how to achieve this style at home.

Riawna and Nina both wanted to create an effortless, not-too-perfect, whimsical updo with lots of twists, knots, and braids involved. Here’s the step-by-step how-to on Nina’s hair:未命名-2

  1. Start with dry hair and spray all over the hair to protect it from the use of hot styling tools.
  2. Then, curl the entire head with a 3/4 inch curling iron. Loosen up the curls by running the fingers through the hair and add some texture with spray .
  3. Next, create an inside out French braid with the hair on each side of the head from the temple on down. It’s more difficult to see braids on brunettes compared to blondes, so an inside-out French braid is perfect for that extra pop!
  4. Tie a rubber band at the bottom of the braid and wrap it under so it almost resembles a snail shell, then pin it into place. Fatten the braid with unite dust and gently pull it apart.
  5. Grab pieces of the remaining center section of the hair, twist it, knot it, and pin it in place. The idea is to create fullness in the hair, but with more of a lived-in look, so be sure to leave some ends of the hair sticking out.
  6. Lastly, remove the duck bill clips and connect the top part of the hair with the bottom section so the updo looks blended and uniform. The sections should all melt together at this stage. Lock the hair into place with spray and then use glossing spray to soften the hair and add shine for the perfect elegant updo.72890
