Taking care of your hair extensions on holiday

Taking care of your hair extensions on holiday未命名-1

Are you jetting off to sun-kissed faraway beaches and yearning for long, thick tresses and that beach babe look? Celebrities understand the power of gorgeous long hair – the perfect partner to a skimpy bikini and a glorious tan. Their secret? A salon visit pre-holiday for some flattering hair extensions.

Protect your hair extensions

  • You wouldn’t dream of sunbathing without UV protection and the same goes for your hair, hair extensions and scalp.
  • Use a sun product with a high SPF such as Kerastase’s Soleil Aqua Seal, a leave-in spray which is light and easy to use. As extensions may become a little loose if you put oil or serum directly onto the micro ring or tape extension, focus the sun protector on the hair length. And of course, a hat or scarf is always your hair’s best friend against the fierce sun.未命名-2

Swimming with hair extensions

  • You can swim with tape and micro rings extensions and I suggest you tie your hair back into a ponytail or plait before taking the plunge to save tangling and pulling. However, I don’t recommend swimming with clip-in hair extensions.
  • The chlorine and the chemicals in pools damages and discolours hair, especially blondes, which can develop a greenish hue. So whether you have human hair extensions or not, always wash your hair immediately after swimming using a shampoo specifically formulated to remove chlorine such as Kerastase’s Soleil Shampoo.
  • For tape hair extensions I suggest using a shampoo for oily hair – ask your Beauty and Melody extension specialist for a personal prescription for your hair and extensions, or pop into our London salon for a complimentary hair extension consultation and some expert advice.Capelli-lunghi-neri-2015-autunno-invernocon-ricci

After sun for hair extensions

Wash hair in the evening to remove the build up of hair product from the day and give it a deep moisturising treat such asAfter-Sun Hair Treatment Masque to help sun-stressed tresses. Pay particular attention to the hair length.

Holiday styling for your hair extensions

  • The ponytail is a huge look for SS14 and works beautifully with long, thick hair extensions. For the perfect sexy ponytail keep it super slick and tie low on the nape of your neck. For a care-free look a thick side-plait says A-lister glamour as you lie by the pool or sip a cocktail.
  • In the evening human hair extensions look just fabulous with soft curls and loose waves. European hair is more high maintenance and benefits from blow-drying and styling to look its glossy best. Russian hair extensions on the other hand (being more luxurious, silky and softer) can be left to dry naturally for a more tousled fashion-forward style.

How to Get Effortless Loose Waves …

How to Get Effortless Loose Waves …未命名-2
Loose waves are perfect for summer – but won’t it take ages to get the look? And who wants to spend hours styling their hair when you could be lounging around enjoying the sun? Thankfully there are ways to get loose waves without too much effort …


‘But I don’t have time for hot rollers!’ you think. Well, the whole point of hot rollers is that you leave them in to do their magic. So while they’re making waves, you can do your makeup, have breakfast or organise your outfit for the day/evening. When they’re done, simply run your fingers through your hair, taking care not to brush the waves out completely.


If you do have a little more time, you can use a curling iron to get gorgeous loose waves. Do use heat protector so that your hair doesn’t get damaged. Section off your hair and curl each piece for no more than 20 seconds. Remove the iron, then hold the curl for a short while. Once the curls are done, spray with hairspray then brush through.



If you want to wake up to instant loose waves, here’s the way to do it. You’ll need a narrow headband that’s comfortable enough to sleep in. Simply pin your hair in curls around the headband, enjoy a good night’s sleep, and when you wake up unpin the curls. You should end up with lovely soft waves, but may need a little product to help them stay for longer. This will also work very well on hair that’s not long enough to braid.未命名-3


Take a tip from previous generations who didn’t have curling irons or heated rollers, and make some rag curls. Be careful not to wind them up too tightly though, and don’t use too many rags; they should be loose rather than right against your head. In the morning, unwrap the rags, spray with product, and brush through. Voila! Effortless waves.


A super-easy way to get loose waves is to fake it with clip-in extensions! This is a great way to get the look for a night out or special occasion, without the major expense and commitment of ‘permanent’ extensions. It takes no time at all to clip them in, and you can try out the wavy look without having to bother styling your hair.双色发72890

Now that fall is quickly approaching, below are some tips on how to love your curly hair and rock it like a superstar!


Over summer a wash-n-go was, and remains, my favorite go to style. It’s quick and easy and requires the low manipulation that my curly hair loves. While the random wild breeze will muss or tangle my hair a wee bit, wearing my hair free flowing is a comfortable way to transition in to fall. This is why this simple style is number one on my list of tips on how to love your curly hair.


Braids are beautiful and I love wearing them. They are easy to do (sometimes) and can add variety to my daily style. Not only are braids lovely but they are also an easy way to add more texture and volume to your style. Try a loose side braid with headband or hair clip and rock that curly braided style.


Free flowing, bouncy waves, curls, coils, and kinks are beautiful! They can also be a little hot and sweaty at times – depending on length. When the weather heats up another of my favorite styles is a high messy bun. It looks dreamy and feels like heaven when the air hits your neck.A messy bun is versatile. It is also feels and looks relaxed yet pulled together, and no matter what I’m wear I feel confident wearing it.


Do you use your hair to make a statement? Yes? Me, too; every day, whether I intend to or not.But when I am feeling particularly stylish and bold, I love to rock a faux hawk! It’s cute, super easy, badass, and loads of fun. Top off your faux hawk with a hint of color or a shiny hair accessory and you are all set to rock your curly hair like a superstar!


I love vintage style, particularly 1940’s rockabilly hair. Oh, so gorgeous! Super dreamy and touchable yet so pulled together and polished. The volume and ringlets allow me the base necessary to style those rockabilly perfections. From victory rolls to waves and chignons, vintage hair is a big and wonderful option to rock your hair like a vintage superstar.72890

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’


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:


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.


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.



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.


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!


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


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.


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
