Hairstyles in 2022

Hairstyles To Watch Out For In 2022

It’s 2022, which means we have another year of trends to keep on top of! And even if you don’t fancy trying out the latest trending hairstyles in 2022, there’s no time like the new year to refresh your look!

Feeling overwhelmed? The Flip-In Hair team is going to share everything we know about what you should be looking out for in 2022 when it comes to your new ‘do.

 

Hairstyles 2022

Brand New Hairstyles For 2022

 

So, you know what a bob is and you’re familiar with a pixie cut, but have you heard about the bixie cut? Yep, you read that correctly! These two iconic hairstyles aren’t just back and better than ever, they’ve joined forces! We do not doubt that this hybrid ‘90s style is going to be absolutely everywhere in 2022, so why not get ahead of the game?

This is the perfect hairstyle for those who don’t fancy committing to a pixie cut but still want to add some edge to their look with a shorter haircut. If you find yourself growing out your beloved pixie cut, this is a great transitional look to ease yourself into having longer hair again. 

The bixie cut is all about embracing layers and using your hair’s natural texture to your advantage, making it ideal for those with naturally curly or wavy hair. If your hair is on the straighter end of the spectrum, you can make this retro vibe work for you by introducing products like sea salt spray and texturising paste into your routine.

 

Bringing The ‘70s Hairstyles To 2022

 

As you may have already noticed, this year is all about throwbacks and bringing long-forgotten hairstyles back onto the scene. This time, we’re going to take you even further back, all the way to the ‘70s. During this time, long hair with a shorter fringe was what anyone who was anyone would wear. Don’t worry, we’re definitely not suggesting you go for a micro fringe, unless you want to, of course!

To emulate this look for yourself in 2022, opt for a long, slightly layered cut with a fringe that frames your face to add some softness to it. When it comes to your parting, it’s best to wear it in the centre to show off your beautiful, even layers. 

If you have thin hair and you find yourself dreading how longer layers might work for you, you can use Flip-In Hair Lite to give your hair the body it needs to pull off these hairstyles for 2022, without it weighing you down. 

Or maybe you’d rather go for Flip-In Hair Straight if you don’t have thick hair but would still like some more to work with? Whatever you choose, we have something for you, and with no clips, glue, or weaving, it’s easier than ever to switch things up!

Autumn Hair Care Tips

Autumn Hair Care Tips

Autumn is rapidly approaching and you should be starting to ready your hair for the weather change and a brand new hair care routine.

 

Autumn Hair

 

Treat Yourself To A Trim

 

We all know that, as a rule, we should be getting regular cuts every 6-8 weeks. Yet, as summer ends, we should be thinking about getting rid of that summer damage as soon as possible. The sun weakens our hair’s protein structure, dries it out and reduces its elasticity, making it prone to breakage. A post-summer trim will help to eliminate this damage and make room for your fresh, healthy hair to grow and flourish.

 

Scalp Care And Combating Dryness

 

As we head into autumn we need to re-moisturise our hair. To make this happen, use a mask or gloss once a week as they will add moisture to your hair and reduce the dryness left behind from summer. The change in weather will also mean your hair is put through more stress, so using a deep conditioning treatment will ensure it stays happy and healthy.

Washing your hair too often will strip it of the essential oils produced by your body, leaving it malnourished and dry. Generally speaking, it’s said you should wash your hair two to three times a week, however, this depends on your hair type. An easy way to ensure your hair gets all those beautiful nutrients from your scalp is to brush it at night to help push these towards the ends.

 

Following The Correct Diet

 

As with anything to do with the body, having the correct diet is imperative. Hair is made of protein, so including this in your diet is going to help keep it strong. Protein can be found in foods such as chicken, fish, eggs and dairy products. For vegetarians or vegans, legumes and nuts are good options.

Omega-3 provides oils that hydrate your hair and scalp. Good sources of Omega-3 include salmon, herring and sardines. This also appears in avocado, pumpkin seeds and walnuts.

Try to include Biotin in your diet as well as too little can cause your hair to become brittle, making it prone to dryness and breakage. Biotin can be found in liver and egg yolks. Alternatively, non-meat eaters could choose wholegrains, soy flour or yeast. Biotin can also be purchased in pill form at most supplement stores.

Not having enough iron can lead to hair loss! Our hair follicles and roots are fed by our blood supply, so ensuring you have enough iron is extremely beneficial. Opt for foods such as red meat, chicken and fish. Vegetarian and vegan options include lentils, spinach, kale, broccoli and general leafy greens. Vitamin C helps with the absorption of iron, and you can find this in foods like blackcurrants, blueberries, strawberries and sweet potatoes.

Hair Myths

Hair Myths That Need The Chop

How many times did your mum encourage you to finish your sandwich by telling you that your hair would become curly if you ate all your crusts?

It’s been a couple of decades now and we can say with absolute certainty that our hair is no curlier than it would’ve been had we not hoovered up our crusts. Curl cream and a diffuser go much further than crusts – sorry, mum! 

Over the years, we’ve all been given more tips and tricks than we can shake a stick at when it comes to our hair. However, many of us have come to realise that some of them are more fiction than fact! That’s why we’re here to debunk some common hair myths to save you some time and energy when it comes to looking after your tresses.

 

Hair Myths And Facts

Hair Myths: Haircuts Make Your Hair Grow Quicker

 

This is probably the most common myth out there when it comes to hair. Getting your hair cut on a regular basis will definitely keep your locks healthy, but it won’t make them grow any faster! 

Here’s the thing about hair, it grows from roots near the very bottom of the hair follicle. These roots are made up of proteins and receive nourishment from the blood vessels in our scalp. This creates more cells that result in hair growth.

When new cells are created, hair gets pushed further and further up until it moves past the scalp. Along the way, your new hair passes oil glands that will facilitate its growth. These same glands can also make your hair greasy, but more on that later. 

As our hair is all technically ‘dead’ anyway, a haircut definitely can’t do any harm. In fact, a haircut is a great idea, especially if your hair is a little damaged. It’ll stop split ends from spreading further and breaking even higher. So, if longer locks are a priority, you’ll need to give your hairdresser a ring.

 

Hair Myths: Cold Water Makes Your Hair Shinier

 

This is a myth we all need to stop believing – a blast of cold water at the end of a shower does nothing except make us uncomfortable! 

What’s the logic here then? Well, it was once thought that cold water closes the cuticle, which is the protective coating on the outside of the hair shaft. A closed cuticle is a flat cuticle, meaning, in theory, that it should be able to reflect more light and therefore make your hair shinier. 

As we mentioned earlier, our hair isn’t technically alive so it won’t really react to water temperature. It can still react to the products we use though. Because of this, you should still rinse whatever products you choose to use with warm water in order to get the most out of them (in every sense). If you’re thinking about using incredibly hot water on your hair… please don’t. As we all know, too much heat is always a bad thing.

Our scalp, on the other hand, does react to temperatures, with cold water having an adverse effect on this part of the head. When you rinse with cold water, the capillaries in your scalp constrict, which means the vital nutrients your hair needs to grow might not be able to make their way down to the hair bulb. Long story short, skip the change of temperature to keep your hair and scalp healthy! 

 

Hair Myths Busted

Hair Myths: You Shouldn’t Use Conditioner If You Have Greasy Hair

 

See, we told you we’d get back to everyone’s least favourite eventuality! Contrary to popular belief, greasy hair doesn’t come about as a result of conditioners, so avoiding this product won’t necessarily do you any good. 

In fact, greasy hair is actually down to the scalp’s production of sebum, a perfectly natural process that moisturises this area and balances its pH. Unfortunately, too much of this substance can make your hair look shiny… and not in a good way.

Here’s the annoying bit: washing your hair too often to combat greasiness can make the situation a whole lot worse. That’s because our scalp is just like the skin on our faces in the sense that washing it more often can make it even oiler. When our natural oils are stripped away, our scalp panics and tries to make up for the lack of oil by producing more to try and compensate. This sends our oil production into overdrive. 

Finding the balance between too much and not enough is tricky but it’s important to pay attention to your hair and how it reacts to what you do. A little natural oil is perfectly normal but you might find that your hair still feels greasy to the touch the day after you wash it.  If you’re really struggling, stick to conditioning the lengths of your hair as they’re probably drier anyway. This is because the ends of your hair get more damaged over time, drying them out and making them more porous than the rest. 

 

How We Can Help

 

Sometimes, there’s no harm in faking it until you make it. So, if you want to make your hair seem fuller and healthier, our extensions could be perfect for you. After all, there’s only so much you can do on your own.

At Flip-In Hair, we can help you create any style you like, and if it’s length and volume you’re after, we’ve got you covered. Make sure you check out our colour match service so your hair can stay as seamless as possible.

Our Top Tips And Favourite Hairstyles This Festival Season

As you may have heard… festival season is back on the cards and we couldn’t be more excited! It’s been a little while now since we pulled our wellies out of the shed or Googled ‘how to put up a tent’, and we can’t wait to get started. But, in between reminding ourselves about the outdoors essentials, who amongst us has thought about their Favourite Hairstyles?

After all, you can’t forget about nailing that all-encompassing festival look, not this year at least! 

So, if you haven’t splashed out on the fancy showers and the hairdryers, those of you sleeping in a tent will need some help keeping your hair fresh. That’s why we’re going to share our top tips for ensuring that your hair remains looking fabulous this festival season, with a few go-to favourite hairstyles thrown in for good measure. Let’s get started! 

 

Favourite Hairstyles Flip-In Hair

The Last Shower…

 

Make the most of your last shower before you head out on the open road or jump on a train. You’ll definitely need to cover all bases when you’re in the cubicle, so make sure to wash and shampoo your hair before you set off. 

When you condition your hair, most of the product should be applied to the lengths of your hair, not the roots. This will ensure that your hair appears shiny, not oily – we want to avoid that for as long as possible!

If you can, you should also make time for a hair mask – even if you only leave it in for ten minutes! Giving your hair a little bit of extra TLC before the exciting weekend ahead is also a good shout. If you have any hydrating products, now is the time to embrace them. Using a light leave-in conditioner will be sure to cushion the blow should you cause any damage to your tresses. 

 

Step Away From The Other Products!

 

We need to draw the line at leave-in conditioner for now. The other products you would normally use at this point will do you more harm than good at a festival! Mousse, hairspray, serum and pretty much anything else you can think of will weigh your hair down and make it look greasy much quicker. We know it can be tempting but it’s for your own good!

‘What about dry shampoo?’, we hear you ask. Dry shampoo is an absolute godsend when it comes to festivals but it works best when your hair is already dirty. It will soak up excess oil but only if there’s any there to start with! With that in mind, try to use dry shampoo when you really need to. If your hair is on the greasier side, you may need to use this sooner, but if you can, hold off until before you go to bed after the first day, or till your second morning. 

Don’t forget to comb or brush (whichever you prefer) your hair regularly even though you’re bound to be distracted – you don’t want to come home with knots and split ends! Your hair is probably going to go through a lot anyway, so there’s no need to make the situation worse.

 

Our Favourite Hairstyles To See You Through The Weekend

 

The possibilities are endless when it comes to hairstyles, but we know that not all hairstyles are created equal! Before you set off, make sure you have an idea of what you want to do with your hair. This means you can spend less time thinking about styling and more time enjoying yourself. Your efforts might be in vain if the heavens open but that’s the risk we take… don’t you just love the British summertime? It might be wise to pop a waterproof jacket in your backpack for good measure.

For the first day or two, why not keep your hair down? You’ll be having so much fun, you won’t even notice it anyway. Let your hair dry naturally and maybe scrunch it a little bit to create some effortless ‘I woke up like this waves’ à la Alex Chung at Glastonbury. Your hair will most likely still look pretty good the morning after, so make the most of it! A half-up, half-down has a lot of potential at this point, don’t you think? Or you could twist the sides and pin them back, moving on to the perfect mini messy bun before you whip out your dry shampoo.

Towards the end of the weekend, braids or buns are your best friend. If you struggle with braiding your own hair, chances are your friend will help you – what else are friends for, right? Braids are perfect for disguising greasy hair so if your dry shampoo isn’t quite cutting the mustard anymore, no one will notice! 

Braids can be intimidating if you’ve not attempted them before, but this handy guide is perfect for beginners. If braids aren’t your thing, try some buns! A top-knot, messy bun or space buns are our personal favorites. We know these styles aren’t revolutionary but they’re quick, easy and will leave you with plenty of time to live your best life!

When all else fails – accessorise. Throw on a hat or a bandanna, you can’t go wrong with either of them. We know they’re a bit 2009, but we’re not entirely opposed to flower crowns either, they’re still super-cute and we’ve been told they’re back! If it’s the very last day, it’s definitely not the end of the world if you decide to add some hair glitter into the mix, after all, you’ll be reunited with your shower in no time.

 

What About Extensions For Your Favourite Hairstyles?

 

There’s no reason why you can’t wear your extensions at a festival! Our extensions don’t require any clips, glue or weaving so they’re perfect when it comes to switching up your look in a flash! If you’re more of a ponytail person, don’t worry! Our ponytail extensions give you the extra length and volume you want in no time at all.

At Flip-In Hair, we can help you create virtually any style you like so if you want to add a pop of colour to elevate your favourite hairstyles this festival season – we’ve got you covered! If it’s the length and volume you’re after, we can do that too. Make sure you check out our colour match service so your hair can stay as seamless as possible, even if you’ve been out in the sun and your hair is a little lighter than usual.

To find out more about us, or to purchase our hair extensions, visit our website today! You can also call us on (0)1926 659 500 or email admin@flipinhair.com and remember – staying safe doesn’t mean you can’t look amazing!

 

Caring For Your Extensions

Caring For Your Extensions

Buying hair extensions isn’t the cheapest thing to do, which is why it’s important to take care of them to give them the longest lifespan possible. Much like if you were to buy a new pair of trainers or handbag, looking after these products is going to benefit you (and your pocket) in the long run. 

 

Extensions Care

Why Is Caring For Your Extensions Important?

 

Extensions aren’t attached to your scalp, so they don’t receive constant nutrients and oil deposits in the same way as your hair does. They are chemically processed, which means they are drier and slightly coarser than your natural hair. Due to this, you’ll want to use ingredients that will replenish and add moisture to your hairpieces. 

 

Which Ingredients Should I Avoid?

 

Products that contain sulfates, parabens, bleach and short-chain alcohols can damage hair extensions. These ingredients can cause your extensions to dry out! They may also be listed under names such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), propyl and isopropyl. Avoid using products that contain these substances. 

 

Which Ingredients Will Benefit My Extensions?

 

When choosing products for your extensions you should be looking out for those that contain long-chain fatty alcohols. Products featuring coconut oil or palm oil will benefit you as they’ll draw moisture into the hair and add a smooth, slippery texture to help with detangling. Generally, these ingredients are found in conditioners and deep conditioning treatments. 

Aim for Morrocan oil, argan oil or castor oil-based products. These will help to hydrate and moisten your hairpieces. 

 

How Should I Wash My Extensions?

 

When it comes to washing your extensions it is important to remember that they don’t receive the same oils and nutrients as your natural hair, therefore, it’s not necessary to wash them as often as you would your own hair. 

A good rule of thumb is to wash them every 30 days or when they become difficult to style as this means there’s a build-up of product!

Here are some steps to follow when washing your Flip-In Wefts

 

  • Brush your extensions and rid them of any tangles.
  • Shampoo each weft individually – this will help prevent tangling.
  • Condition each weft individually – leave the products to soak in for around 10 minutes.
  • Apply a deep conditioner – leave this in overnight for the best results.
  • Rinse hair thoroughly – ensure there’s no slippery texture to the hair. 
  • Rinse under cold water – this will close the cuticles ensuring the moisture stays in the hair.
  • Air-dry your extensions – using heat will create frizz and could potentially damage the hair.

OLAPLEX says “our hair contains millions of disulfide bonds. These bonds give the hair its structure, strength, and stability. It restores damaged and compromised hair by repairing it from the inside out.” 

With so many steps, the range of products can seem a little daunting at first. That’s why we’ve broken them down for you: 

  • OLAPLEX No.0 – The newest arrival in the collection primes hair for deeper repair with the highest dose of OLAPLEX technology. Use this as a two-part system alongside No.3 for best results.
  • OLAPLEX No.1 & No. 2 – These are exclusive to professionals and only for salon use.
  • OLAPLEX No.3 – This is the product that put it on the map. No.3 is an at-home treatment that visibly reduces breakage and strengthens damaged hair. 
  • OLAPLEX No.4 – No.4 addresses everyday stresses such as damage, split ends and unwanted frizz. Use a regular shampoo to refresh your hair as well as repair it. 
  • OLAPLEX No.5 – Used in conjunction with No.4, OLAPLEX No.5 restores, repairs and hydrates without adding excess weight to the hair. 
  • OLAPLEX No.6 – No.6 is a highly concentrated leave-in smoothing cream, which prevents frizz and flyaways – perfect for all hair types! 
  • OLAPLEX No.7 – An ultra-lightweight, reparative styling oil that dramatically increases shine, adds softness and strength and enhances all hair types and textures.

 

How Can It Help My Hair? 

 

We’re all guilty of not using heat protection when we’re in a rush, or not looking after our colour-treated hair as well as we could do. This product is here to save us from our own laziness. Whether the damage is thermal, mechanical or chemical, OLAPLEX has a product to rebuild the bonds in your hair and bring it right back to health. 

 

Does It Really Work?

 

Take it from the celebs, OLAPLEX is a miracle worker when it comes to revitalising damaged hair. Drew Barrymore herself raved about the amazing results she saw after using it just once. 

“It’s amazing how much your hair changes over the course of your life—it just doesn’t bounce back the same way. But this strengthens my hair in one wash. It’s amazing.”

Sun Damaged Hair

What You Can Do To Avoid Sun-Damaged Hair

The gradual easing of restrictions, no longer needing to wrap up warm, a potential return to – whisper it – life as we know it?

Whilst there’s much to be celebrated as we move into spring, one thing that we do need to be mindful of is the impact that the sun can have on our hair. Heat styling isn’t the only thing capable of frazzling our gorgeous locks, you know!

 

How Can The Sun Damage Our Hair?

Even though most people are aware of the dangers of sun-damaged skin, considerably less are in the know about what the sun can do to our hair. In fact, when we spend too much time basking in its glory, we may experience discolouration, brittleness, bleaching and an increase in split ends. Hair that has fallen victim to sun damage will also become almost impossible to manage – and most commonly affects those blessed with fairer or lighter hair colours.

 

Why Does Sun Damage Occur?

Sun-damaged hair occurs because of how the sun’s rays react with a natural substance known as melanin. When strands of hair are exposed to heat, they can change colour, lose elasticity and become weaker in structure. All of this can set the stage for lasting damage, sunburn and a big ol’ dip in confidence.

Sun Damaged Hair

 

What You Can Do To Avoid Sun-Damaged Hair

Fortunately, there are many precautions you can take to reduce your risk of sun damage. Here are some of our favourites!

  • Suitable headwear: Before we even get into products that we recommend to protect your hair and scalp, the first thing we’d advise you to do is to wear a hat whenever you go outside. This is similar to why you would wear clothes that cover your skin when you know you’re going to come into contact with the sun. Hats not your thing? Try using a headscarf or umbrella instead.
  • Proactive haircare: All good hair care starts in the shower, so make sure you invest in a decent conditioner or pre-conditioning shampoo to get the ball rolling. Using these sorts of protective products will give your hair a fighting chance against the sun’s rays and also boost its moisture levels at the same time. As the warmer weather can increase the rate at which we sweat, these moisturising products are especially important to use during the spring and summer.
  • Use an SPF on your hair: SPF products (think sunscreens, sunblocks etc.) aren’t just useful for the skin, and many of these can help protect your hair from seasonal sun damage. Here, our advice is to apply these products just before you go outside, paying extra attention to the tips of your hair as these are most at risk of harm. Because some SPF formulas can make your hair extensions greasy, it is always best to apply them to these parts of the hair in moderation. If this proves to be a problem, it might be worth changing up your look altogether. Ponytail, anyone?
  • Be mindful of swimming: This last one might be tempting fate a little, but exposing your hair to the chlorinated water found in swimming pools (both here and abroad) can weaken its defences against the sun. To stop this from happening, wear a swimming cap or keep your hair out of the water altogether by tying it up. Harmful chlorine should also be rinsed away by showering after you leave the pool.

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!
