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 years. 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.

Ok, so the days are getting longer, and our little corner of the world is slowly turning those much anticipated few degrees closer to the sun… Spring is only a few more sleeps away now, and those tantalizing warm rays of sunlight are making everyone feel more lively as the dreariness of winter starts to lift.
That can only mean one thing: new-season makeover time is here!
Of course Liquid Girl is up to date with all the directional cuts and colours for spring/summer – but exactly what are the looks that are making a statement for the upcoming seasons? Here’s the lowdown on ways to keep your style looking fresh and current…
The pixie cut is a short hairstyle with texture in the upper layers that should ideally be slightly messy, which is good news - this look does not require much fussing with products and styling! It will mean however, that you will need to come in to visit the salon a little more frequently to refresh your sexy crop, and maintain the shape of the cut.
The bob cut is back for summer style, and this season there are a couple of different variations to try. You could do a short, smooth bob cut with an eyebrow skimming fringe and bare neck – the clean lines of this cut really make an impact. Or try a longer, slightly messy style with volume and movement. This more intermediate length looks fresh, and is perfect for the eclectic, bohemian summer dresses and accessories.
It seems like the fringe never leaves the hair fashion radar! It’s back again this summer. Try one that is cut long and to the side, or go for a statement full fringe that falls right on the eyebrow. A great way to add a touch of femininity and fun to your cut – a fringe suits just about every length of hair.
The Long Hairstyle
Long Hair always looks great – and this summer it’s the longer the better! The main advantage to a long style is that you can change the look each time if you want. Add some layers to give natural volume. Loose braids, pony tails and effortless-looking, tousled up-styles are perfect for keeping those long locks under control in the summer months, and are being seen in just about every editorial shoot in the latest fashion journals all over the world. Think bohemian and slightly disheveled. The middle part is still a hot look - just remember to be little wild with your long hair: voluminous and messy – the smoothed down styles of the past couple of years has been all ruffled up!
Set your style dial to bright if you dare when you talk to your stylist about a new shade for your ‘do… Think Rihanna red, or Lady Gaga blonde if you want make a hair statement that pops. Or maybe try some warm, natural tones with honey-coloured highlights to compliment your haute hippie summer styling… And last but not least, don’t forget to accessorise your summer hairstyle with some ribbons or tapes, or even flowers.
