Many women would love to have the look of their favourite celebrities. Copying their hair styles is a way to get closer to this. Most singers and film stars favour the long tresses that can be achieved with hair extensions. They can then ring the changes of hair up and hair down, hair wavy, curly or straight.
Following the New York premier of the film Tourist in December, the half up, half down look worn by Angelina was copied around the world. The star has always been seen with long hair either worn long and flowing or high on her head. On this occasion, leaving some soft fronds to frame her beautiful face, she pinned the top strands back and up, with the rest left to fall down her back.
Cheryl’s big, bouncy hair indicates that she is a big fan of extensions. Last October the public watched spellbound as she performed Promise This on the X-Factor wearing ultra-long extensions in a two colour version. Most of her hair was in her gorgeous flagship burgundy, mixed with a few strands of black.
Be in Good Company
Katie Price has been known to go horse riding without a hard hat. Was she using the occasion to show off the beautiful and bountiful curly black hair extensions bouncing to the motion of her steed? Halle Berry first burst onto our screens as a perfect Bond girl with a tiny curly cap. Times have changed and we now often see her with long, lustrous extensions. Victoria Beckham rings the changes with hair extensions for length and highlights regularly. Up and coming Arabian actress, Ghada Adel is reported to have flown to London last November specifically to transform her short bob into a long curly style.
Your hair extensions put you in good company, and let you copy the styles of the rich and famous. You could be a different celebrity every day of the week.

While you may have chosen your hair extensions to give you the long, flowing hairstyles you can’t have naturally, sometimes it’s good to have a change. For a special evening event, many women choose to pile their hair up in romantic waves and curls. To appear more formal in a business meeting, they’ll go for a sleeker style with hair taken back and up. Whether you go for a chignon or a top knot, you can have a romantic or a formal look.
This classic style takes your longer hair back and twists it into a low bun at the nape of the neck. With very little hair on your face, a tidy bun is neat and formal. Your hair extensions can add the bulk that just hints at the profusion waiting to be released. Just make sure all the hair is in tip-top, shiny condition, tie it back into a low ponytail, section the tail into strands that you pull around and secure. Spritz both pins and hair with hairspray for complete confidence.
You can make this look romantic too, with large loops and escaping wisps at your nape that echo those that fall on your forehead and in front of you ears, framing your face with curling fronds. Tuck in a flower or add a pretty bow to complete the look.
The Top Knot
Just like a chignon, only higher, the top knot displays the perfection of a long, slender neck in any situation. Again you could go for a sleek look with a bun high on your head, or make it huge, bouffant and playful. Tie it around with colourful dangling ribbons for an even more exuberant effect.
Ringing the Changes
These are just a few ideas for new things you can do with your hair when you have extensions attached. You’ll find lots more ways for your hair extensions to help your look reflect your mood.
