Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day Looks

Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching and, if you’re anything like us, your hair has been in the same style for the past 12 months and you haven’t given it a second thought. Well, forget lockdown and forget having the same old style! Why not bring these amazing hairstyles to life this Valentine’s?!

Valentine's day

French Braid Crown

Construct a beautiful, angelic look by incorporating two french braids on either side of your head to create a crown that can go around to the opposite sides. Having two braids will also ensure your hair looks thicker and fuller – for extra volume, you can try our very own Flip-In Extensions. Use accessories with pearl or diamonte details to liven up the look!  

 

Floral-Inspired Ponytail

You know those flowers that you’re definitely going to be receiving on V-Day, how cool would it be if your hair matched them?! Use Flip-In Flash (try the red to match the theme of the day) to add wefts to your hair and strategically place braids and twists to create a rustic rosette at the top of your ponytail.

Valentine's day

Effortless Waves

Do you have shorter hair and would prefer not to add length or volume? The effortless beach wave look is perfect for you, and using a large-barrelled curling wand will enable you to achieve a stunning look with very little effort for your valentine. Remember, hairspray and a wide-toothed comb are your best friend when it comes to curls! 

If you’d like to add length and fancy something different, try out our easy-to-fit Flip-In Extensions! 

Valentine's day

Topknot 

You know what a half-up half-down looks like, you know what a topknot looks like – now put them together and create a bewitchingly bodacious hairstyle for your significant other! Add in two face-framing front pieces and you have yourself the perfect attention-grabbing look! 

 

Curly Updo 

Using a thin comb, slick your hair back into a ponytail. Remember to deploy the hairspray and gel to ensure it’s sleek and secure, using a cute scrunchie, simple hairband or hair grips to create some loops, add volume and secure the updo. 

We hope you find the perfect style for your hair this Valentine’s and slay all day!

winter damage hair

How To Avoid Winter Hair Damage

Even though 2021 started in a less than conventional manner, we guarantee that one thing has remained constant as of late: winter hair damage.

And whether this has taken on the form of split ends, dry patches or brittleness, we know that combatting this unfortunate seasonal side effect can seem like a never-ending struggle.

But, before you declare all-out war on your winter-damaged hair, you’re in luck.

Keep reading to find out how best to deal with this common concern and keep your cool ahead of that next big date night or job interview – even if these end up unfolding over Zoom!

Switch off the straighteners (and those other appliances!)

Although heat-styling is an important part of many a morning hair routine, why waste precious minutes using straighteners, curling irons and hair dryers when you’re only going to be sitting in your pyjamas all day anyway?

As such appliances can contribute to damaged hair and dry out the scalp, it’s best to leave these tasks for those special occasions, such as making that all-important trip to the shops. We’d also advise that you let your hair dry of its own accord where possible too, as this is the most effective way of protecting it from heat-induced dryness.

Extra tip: Opt for a style that requires zero input from heat-styling tools. Ponytails, buns and braids are but a few workable examples. Here are some more.

Use key products

Hair of any type, be it curly, coiled, natural or something else entirely, is equally in danger of suffering from winter damage.

Therefore one of the easiest ways to restore some moisture to your recently famished locks is to use an oil-based moisturiser at regular intervals throughout the day. This should be applied in partnership with your go-to shampoo and conditioner for best results.

If “hat hair” has become a bit of a problem, many experts suggest using an oil-based moisturiser on your hair just before you wrap up to brave the great outdoors. Another good tip is to carry a leave-in conditioner with you at all times as this will help to smooth out any static or kinks when you reach your destination.

Take control of your shower routine

Tempting though it may be to up the temperature of your shower, this can spell bad news for your hair. Washing your hair in water that is too hot can lead to breakages and further damage, whilst also stripping it of moisture. This can be avoided by showering in lukewarm water and limiting your time in the cubicle to no more than 10 minutes.

Whilst we’re on the subject of hair washing, it might also be a good idea to switch up your shampoo. And this is particularly important if your scalp has become itchier over winter. Swap your regular shampoo for one with a more gentle formula – this will help to combat a dry, flaky scalp and soothe any discomfort you may be experiencing as a result.

Try Flip-In Hair

If you’re looking to try something new this lockdown, then why not explore Flip-In Hair’s fabulous range of hair extensions? These come in a wide variety of colours, lengths and styles, which means that you’re guaranteed to find something to suit you.

As these extensions are made from 100% human hair, they can be washed, styled and cared for just like your natural hair. The only difference is they can be removed before making the trip outside – the perfect way to avoid winter hair damage!

Hair Extensions For Your New Year’s Resolutions!

Everyone has their go-to fancy dress outfit, whether it be a theme, character or person that they want to dress up as – however, no fancy dress costume is complete without the matching hair.

You could use our Flash Extensions to channel your inner Billie Eilish and add some beautiful emerald green to your hair, or go for a more traditional look and style yourself after famous characters such as Cruella de Vil with her classic two-tone hairstyle or even Harley Quinn by adding some bold strips of blue and pink!  

Flip-In also offers a ponytail extension if you are looking to add some extra length and volume to your hair. Ponytails are a timeless look that have been worn by many a celebrity and fictional character. With Halloween fast approaching, you might want to try and ignite your inner Britney Spears or Ariana Grande, both of which have had extremely famous ponytails that are essential if you are trying to replicate their looks! 

A Halloween blog wouldn’t be complete without a Disney princess, and who better to style yourself after than Princess Jasmine? Her banded ponytail is extremely recognisable, and if you fancy a bit of a challenge, can make for a truly great Halloween look!

Autumn and Winter Hair Accessories

Autumn and winter have long been about putting together an outfit that is both stylish and practical, and one that positions us as the height of fashion whilst ensuring that we’re sufficiently prepared to face anything that the weather might throw at us.

But with the seasonal cold often conspiring to make our hair unmanageable, and freezing temperatures tempting us to stay in bed that little bit longer, this can leave us at the mercy of the most adverse effects of the year’s final two seasons and severely lacking in inspiration when it comes to what to do keep our one-time luscious locks en vogue!

At Flip-In, we feel your pain, which is why it’s given us great pleasure to see that hair accessories are still very much the go-to solution for those who want to make a stand against the increasingly unforgiving conditions that have begun to emerge as we move deeper into October.

From super-sized scrunchies and vibrant bandanas to retro claw clips and loud-and-proud headbands, there’s an awful lot of hair inspo going round, so let us clue you in on how to make these must-have accessories an integral part of your autumn-winter wardrobe.

 

Super scrunchies

What goes around comes around, and never did this phrase ring truer than when it comes to the popularity of the super scrunchie. As a hair accessory staple since as far back as the ‘80s, plush and overblown statement scrunchies took Instagram by storm earlier this year and it’s clear that this in-your-face way of sporting low ponies and chignons is very much here to stay!

 

Bandanas

Bandanas might conjure up memories of the early 2000s and the baggy-panted vibes of a young Christina Aguilera, but if catwalk trends are to be followed (and when aren’t they?) then world-renowned designers like Dior and Gucci could well be onto something.

Many of those ahead of the curve have sworn by the likes of bandanas and headscarves to keep their hair in style for as long as we can remember, with these patterned twill, cotton or silk accessories capable of both taking our looks to the next level and hiding a multitude of sins.

Pick a colour that matches the rest of your outfit for bonus autumn points!

 

Retro claw clips

Rising to prominence for their role in keeping Jennifer Aniston’s many Friends looks amongst the most iconic in TV history, claw clips have started to show up left, right and centre as of late with our thirst for ‘90s nostalgia seemingly storming into overdrive.

These days, the chunky clip is more commonly seen adorning the likes of A-listers such as Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid – both of whom use this chunky clip to sweep their hair into an effortless twist – the claw clip is useful on those days when you need to assemble a killer look in half the time and now arrive in many delightful styles such as monochrome, pastel and tortoiseshell.

 

Headbands

Washing your hair can sometimes prove more trouble than it’s worth, particularly if you’re already running behind. That’s why you should never underestimate the power of the humble headband. Back in style this season after some much-needed time out, headbands have re-emerged in a big way with padded velvet, tie dye-flecked and knotted pieces leading the charge. Want to hit the snooze and skip that long-overdue shower? Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone, and neither will your hair!

 

Extensions

We weren’t ever going to end this list any other way, were we? Our innovative, damage-free and temporary hair extensions are a hit all year round, but we often see a surge in their popularity come autumn.

Could this be because of the many seasonal colours we stock or how easily our extensive range of products can allow you to expand on what you’ve already got without committing to a bold new style? Either way, our extensions can help you add something new to your hair this October – and can be fitted and removed in little more than a few minutes!

Check out our extensions in more detail by visiting our website and call us today on 01926 659500 to ensure that bad hair days become a thing of the past!

Look Flip-In Flash for Halloween

Spooky season is fast approaching and with it comes a day full of treats, sweets and of course, fabulous costumes! 

Everyone loves dressing up for Halloween, and whether you want to be a Disney princess or the Joker, having the right head of hair is vital if you want to make your outfit pop. Wigs are good, but hair extensions can take your look to the next level. Below, we’ve compiled some tips for creating a truly horrific (and terrific) Halloween costume, as well as giving a few shout-outs to some of our favourite outfits from last year! 

 

Flip-in Flash Extensions

Extensions are a great way to create a truly special Halloween look this year, and at Flip-In, we have over 30 colours to consider, ranging from traditional blacks and browns to exotic emerald greens, reds or purples. Our extensions are all temporary and easy to fit and remove. There really is no excuse for not rocking Halloween hair this year!

If you are just looking for a flash of colour, then we also offer Flip-In Flash Hair Extensions. These have been designed to add a strip of colour to your natural hair and can be placed anywhere on your head – after all, life is too short to have boring hair! 

Whether you want block colours for a bold look or a mixed colour scheme to get that wavy style you’re going for, there’s something for everyone at Flip-In.

 

Style At Will 

The best part is that all of our products can be styled as you wish. If you want to dye your extensions yourself, then go for it! Fancy curling them? No sweat – you can use heated appliances as you would on your own hair – just make sure you use the same protection you normally would! 

 

Halloween Outfits That You’ll Love 

For blonde extensions: Want to rock some blonde extensions? Barbie, Marilyn Monroe and Alice (from Alice in Wonderland) are all timeless options if you want a fairly hassle-free outfit, and there’s a good chance you could make this look work from what’s already sitting in your wardrobe. 

If you’re after something a bit more complex, you could try and channel your inner Mother of Dragons and dress as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. Bonus points if you find some mythical creatures in the process!

For black extensions: Black extensions can be a great way to hone your inner Addams Family – especially if you can recruit a few friends to recreate the whole gang. If you want to be a bit more daring, dressing up as the Prince of Darkness – otherwise known as Ozzy Osbourne – is always a fan favourite.

For red extensions: Red extensions can be a great way to stand out from the crowd! Some of the more popular outfits from last year include Batman’s Poison Ivy and Ariel from The Little Mermaid! If you’re looking to go crazy with the makeup, a character from James Cameron’s Avatar could also be an option! 

 

Happy Halloween! 

Have a happy, happy Halloween from everyone at Flip-In. If you have any questions about our innovative hair extensions, then please get in touch. They really are the perfect solution if you’re looking to switch up your style on the go or want to trial a new look over Halloween.
