Gigi Hadid: Celebrity Hair Trends

Gigi Hadid: Celebrity Hair Trends

Gigi Hadid has had a meteoric rise in the world of modelling and fashion. Let’s face it – the girl can do no wrong. With a mother like Yolanda as your mentor growing up, who wouldn’t? Blessed with a former model as her mother, Gigi knows all about celebrity hair trends, being in the industry for so long. What I like about her is that she has remained humble throughout, even when walking the runway as a Victoria’s Secret angel! She tends to stick to styles that really suit her structure. This girl knows her angles and sticks to them. Whether it’s slicked back, loose waves framing her face or a high ponytail, she looks gorgeous every day. Colourwise, blonde is her go-to colour. Blonde hair colour really suits her and it never looks false. You know that fake blonde that some celebrities do? The one where you wish you could change it just a shade or two darker so they look less washed out? Yep, that fake blonde. Well, she never looks that shade. A new trend with hair colour is strobing. It’s not just for the face anymore. This gives hair the power to change your facial features, as it lightens the hair around the eyes, giving the illusion of high cheekbones and brighter eyes. Gigi has recently tried this trend. According to Nalan Derby, hair stylist to the stars, ‘Creating hair colour is not a “one size fits all” concept, as there are so many different shades and tones to choose from, a bespoke and tailored colour may not be an instant thing. Your perfect colour...
5 Rockin’ Red Hair Style Trends To Try

5 Rockin’ Red Hair Style Trends To Try

Red hair colour has certainly made a fiery statement this year. From singing diva Rihanna to Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow in The Avengers to our very own local celeb, the gorgeous singer-songwriter, Chiano Sky. If you’ve already taken the plunge into red velvet awesomeness, here are 5 rockin’ styles to try out with your red hair colour: #1 Hollywood Glam Waves Blake Lively rocks timeless Hollywood glam waves. Add a silicone-based hair serum for that extra, healthy shine, so that when the lights hit those waves, it will shimmer beautifully. #2 Effortless Bob Emma Stone looks flawless and chic in a bob with a slightly tousled, out-of-bed look. While this style works with just about any hair colour, the flaming red exudes an edge that makes it possible to rock this look from daily casual to night-time formal. #3 The Top Knot Fashion blogger, Luanna of Le Happy, is known for her edgy yet feminine and vintage street style, with her signature ombre from fiery red to strawberry blond, here she rocks a top knot that screams effortlessly chic. For an extra feminine touch, rock it with a side swept fringe. #4 Front Side Braid Braids have made a huge comeback this year, so why not try your hand at a simple front side braid like Lindsey Lohan? Instead of tucking the braid into the back like this, you can have it hanging on the side of your face in the front, and simply add an elastic band to tie the ends. The result? Uber cute. #5 Statement Fringe Make a bold statement with a full fringe...
A Girls Guide To Hair Colour Ideas

A Girls Guide To Hair Colour Ideas

They say a change is as good as a holiday, and all too often, when us girls use this saying, we’re referring to our hair. While ‘Au Natural’ is pretty and practical, our tresses need a change from time to time. What better way to do it than with a fresh, new hue? However, as most of us know changing your hair colour is hardly as simple as black or white. We’re left with those plaguing questions, “should I go lighter?”, “should I go darker?” and “will ombré suit me?” Just as the success of a haircut depends on the shape of your face, finding the perfect shade for you depends greatly on your skin tone. The aim is for your hair colour to bring out the best in your skin tone and vice versa. Factors to Consider About Your Skin Tone & Hair Colour All skin colour has a yellow or pink undertone, and it can be either, regardless of how light or dark your skin may be. To find your skin’s undertone, examine your face in natural lighting or look at the inner side of your wrist. Remember, the intensity of the contrast between your hair and skin colour will determine how dramatic your look will be overall! So how do you know which shade is perfect for you? Look at the list of hair colour ideas below for how to make your new colour work! Dark Damsel One of the benefits of darker hair is the way it conceals damage and promotes shine far more than lighter shades do. It suits all skin tones, as it...

Top 5 Tips For DIY Hair

Top 5 Tips For DIY Hair

I’m a fan of regularly changing my hair, and I like going the DIY hair route. We all lead busy lives, so colouring your hair at home makes sense, both for your budget and for your schedule sometimes. Even my hairdresser agrees, as he often gives me a home kit to touch up my colour if I can’t find the time to make it back to the salon. When I worked as a personal trainer, I was known as “the girl who changed her hair every month”. It’s a title I like to live up to, and I change my hair as often as I want. It’s great to try a new trend or mix it up with an outrageous colour. Whatever you do, you need to make it your own. If you’re confidently rocking it, everyone else will see that confidence radiating through and love it too. My hair colour is currently my natural dark brown but with pink and pastel pink streaks. It started off as a gorgeous magenta, but as it has faded out I haven’t touched it up again because now I’m obsessed with all things pastel. But that’s why DIY hair is fantastic, because it caters for those of us who are keen on sticking to basic colours like Renew’s Natural Brown and the more adventurous among us who want to make a statement, with a colour like Renew’s Mulberry dye. The beauty of the DIY hair colour is that you can choose to do it at any time. You buy it, you do it, and you dry it. Done! My 5 must have...
