Easy Halloween Hair

Easy Halloween Hair

Halloween is quickly approaching and if you’re anything like us, you aren’t prepared in the slightest. No need to worry though, we have plenty of ideas for easy Halloween hair. Some of them don’t even need a costume to go along with them. How handy is that?!

 

Cat Ears

Listen, we’re well aware that cats are overdone BUT hear us out. Using the Flip-In Ponytail, you can create a cat-ear look with your actual hair. Throw away the boring cat-ear headband and make a little more effort this year.

Who said you couldn’t use your makeup to create an even more exciting look? The best part about being a cat is that you don’t even need to head out and buy an outfit. Everyone has an all-black outfit hiding in their wardrobe for an occasion just like this!

 

Harley Quinn

You’ll need an outfit for this one but it won’t be anything too extravagant. A simple white vest and a pair of denim shorts will suffice. Using Flip-In Flash, create the perfect Harley Quinn Halloween look with our pink and blue colours!

This is a simple Halloween costume to put together and you’ll be able to spice it up with cool makeup. Use pink, blue and white to draw stars around your eyes and wow everyone at your Halloween party.

 

Easy Halloween Hair- Pumpkin

This is an easy-to-do look that requires no special outfit. Use Flip-In Flash (or an orange hairspray) and make a high bun to give your hair a pumpkin effect.

Add a high bun with a hair donut. Use the Flip-In hairpiece or some hairspray to get the perfect colour for that pumpkin effect. Finish with little plastic spiders and a spider’s web to give that creepy-crawly craziness for Halloween.

Growing Out A Pixie Cut

Top Tips For Growing Out A Pixie Cut

Growing out a pixie cut is without a doubt one of the most frustrating experiences you can go through, even if the end result is a brand new style with endless possibilities.

If your pixie cut is still in the preliminary stages of growth and you’re just starting your journey, you’re yet to go through the inevitable awkward phase. At Flip-In Hair, we think it’s in your best interest to prepare for what’s to come and we’re here to guide you through the process. So strap in and get ready to read our top tips for growing out a pixie cut.

 

Pixie Cut

Style It Out Whilst You Are Growing Out Your Pixie Cut

 

When you start growing your pixie cut out, your hair is going to look a bit… choppy. Sadly, that’s something you can’t avoid for a few months. You can either hide away or you can embrace your shaggy layers, after all, they’ll soon be a distant memory! There’s nothing more annoying than trying to disguise what’s happening on top of our heads, so we don’t think you should.

To get around this, opt for products that create volume and define your layers, such as root-boosting powders and texturising gum. If you’re in between washes, dry shampoo can also give you the volume you need until you next wash your hair. These products will shift focus and make it look like your newfound hairstyle is entirely intentional until it gets a little bit longer.

 

If In Doubt, Accessorise

 

Accessories have the potential to cover up bad hair days. Expect plenty of these when you don’t have a pixie cut anymore but you also don’t have a bob just yet. When your hair hits this stage, let accessories become your friend, they will be sure to help you in the long run. 

Headscarves, hats and hairbands are perfect if you’re looking to hide your hair as it continues to grow. These accessories are lifesavers when styling your hair just isn’t on the agenda. If you fancy being a little bit more adventurous, clips are the way forward. You can use bobby pins to pin curl your locks, which will hopefully inject a bit of 50s glamour into your day. You can also pin back the longer sections of your hair that contribute to the mullet vibe you’re probably trying to avoid. If you’re not opposed to hiding a mullet, we’re honestly very impressed. If it’s good enough for Miley Cyrus… 

 

Embrace Extensions

 

Once your hair finally resembles a bob, you’re essentially unstoppable! As soon as your pixie cut is a thing of the past, you’ll have so many more options to choose from, including extensions! We know they might seem overwhelming, especially if you grew up in the early 2000s (looking at you, Christina Aguilera) but there’s no need to fear!

As we know, extensions have the ability to make or break your entire look. Fortunately, with our product range, paired with our colour match service and expertise, you’ll always be in safe hands. You’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time, you deserve to make the most of it.

Autumn Hair Care

Autumn Hair Care: How To Look After Your Hair This Season

With the sun setting on the summer, it might be time to start thinking about your autumn hair care routine. We know what you’re thinking and yes, you really do need to switch up your routine as the seasons change! In order to keep your hair in the best condition possible, adjustments need to be made. Fortunately, there’s no need to worry about figuring out what to do because we’ve got you covered. Here are our top tips for the perfect autumn hair.

 

Autumn Hair Care

 

Autumn Hair Care Step 1: Amp Up The Moisture

 

There’s nothing like cold air to suck the life out of your hair, making it not only dry, but frizzy too. We all know that the drier your hair is, the more prone to breakage it is, so keeping your hair hydrated is key. One way to do this is to switch to a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for dry hair during the colder months of the year. 

For even more moisture, you could consider adding hair oil into the mix as well. Using hair oil sparingly can work wonders for your hair and lock in moisture. 

There are two ways to go about using oils. For a quick boost, you could add a few drops to the ends of your hair after washing it, or you could take it to the next level. Massaging oil into your scalp, working it through the rest of your hair and leaving it overnight before washing it will give you intensely hydrated hair. There are loads of oils you could turn to: coconut, argan, almond or caster to name but a few. These oils will also target a dry scalp, if that’s something you suffer from.

 

Autumn Hair Care Step 2: Focus On Your Scalp

 

More often than not, we’re so concerned about our hair, we forget about our scalp! As we reach the chillier months of the year, our scalp has a tendency to become dry and irritated. This is due to a number of factors but the cold weather is most likely to be the main culprit. A change in diet and chronic conditions like eczema may also be to blame. If you can help it, keeping your scalp hydrated is really beneficial for your hair as a dry scalp can also lead to hair loss.

Oils aren’t the only way to treat your scalp. Clarifying shampoo and scalp scrubs can really work their magic on dandruff. Using these products on a regular basis (at least once a week) can stop dandruff in its tracks and keep your scalp fresh until the first signs of spring. Paying attention to your hairbrush is also important. Using a paddle brush is great for massaging the scalp and will also be gentle on your hair too. If you want to know which brush is best for you, check out one of our latest blog posts to find out more.

 

Autumn Hair Care Step 3: Time For A Haircut?

 

As we mentioned earlier, dry hair is a much more common occurrence in autumn and winter. A mix of central heating and changes in the weather can negatively affect your hair, making it more prone to damage. If your hair is already damaged, it’s only going to make matters worse. It’s best to target things such as split ends when you first see them cropping up.

If left untreated, split ends will work their way up the affected strands of hair until they eventually snap. The only way to treat them is to get rid! Booking an appointment with your hairdresser when you start to see falling leaves is the best way to ensure your tresses won’t end up looking dull and lacklustre.

 

How We Can Help

 

Keeping your hair in tip-top shape is one thing but sometimes, you just fancy a bit of a change. Being able to change your look with ease this autumn gives you the freedom to create whatever style you’d like.

At Flip-In Hair, we can help. If it’s length and volume you want to achieve, we can definitely do that. Or maybe you just want a thicker, fuller ponytail? You should also make sure you check out our colour match service so your hair can stay as seamless as possible.

What is OLAPLEX

What Is OLAPLEX And Why Should You Be Using It? 

OLAPLEX is used by many people to help permanently repair damaged hair from the inside out. With its patented single-ingredient, bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate, it is a one-of-a-kind product that works to restore the broken bonds in your hair. 

 

How Does It Work?

 

This hair-strengthening treatment re-builds the bonds within the hair that are affected by colour treatments, heat damage, sun exposure and so much more.

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.”
