Making a change with hair extensions

Hair Extensions are a fantastic way to update your look for an immediate change,  and if they are cared for correctly can last for months with little damage or no damage to your natural hair. Hair extensions are not only used for length they can be use for thickness, to change the look of your cut or even to add colour when you know your natural hair is not up to the chemical process of the colouring you would like to achieve.

One example of this is the Balayage look, that has been particularly popular over the last eight or so brown-curly-hairyears. Balayage is a French colouring technique that was developed in the 1970s. It’s a freehand technique where the colour is applied by hand rather than using the traditional foiling or cap highlighting techniques. The go-to for modern, chic hair, balayage creates depth and dimension, and leaves you with1 a sun-kissed finish. This effect sounds deceptively simple. It can however, take hours in the hair salon to reproduce, and may leave you with left with dry, damaged ends or blotchy colour.

Recently Great length Hair Extensions have released colour blocking or balayage coloured extensions and these are an ideal way to achieve this hair colour without the associated risks. There are 10 colour combinations to choose from, varying from subtle to dramatic, in two different lengths.

We choose to use only Great Lengths 100% human hair extensions as we firmly believe they offer the best quality, ethics and training available. Read more about Great Lengths hair extensions here. Each Great Lengths certified salon has undergone a full training in order to become a stockist of the product. This ensures that there is at least one certified technician in the salon who is expertly trained in precise application techniques, colour blending and advanced cutting. All these skills result in very professional, natural looking results.

Charlotte, senior stylist at Liquid Hair, loves The Wand which was launched by Cloud Nine in 2012. She uses it at home herself! Here she takes us through a few of the benefits of her favourite styling tool, and gives a few professional tips onhow to use it!

"I love using the wand - it gives me loads of volume and movement, and it's so easy tphotoo use. Being able to adjust the heat means you can use a cooler setting which is better for long-lasting waves and curls," Charlotte said.

"Every time you can make the style individual by taking different sizes sections, and I really like the natural look of the waves you get from using this tool."

"I find the wand a lot easier than using irons to create curl, and so much quicker. Make sure you use a heat-protecting spray to take care of the condition of the hair. TheO Spray is also great for when you want to get that volume and shine without weighing your hair down. And remember to use the glove provided so you don't burn your fingers!"
