No-Heat Hair Styling Ideas

“Hi, the 2000s called and asked for their non-protective, heat-damaging hairstyles back!”

Straighteners and curling wands may have been your best friend in the past but, sweetie, they were definitely not good to your hair. It’s time to ditch the heat damage and liven up your hair with these no-heat hair styling ideas!

Hair Styling Ideas

Overnight Curls

If you can manage to put your overnight oats in the fridge every evening then you can absolutely spend 10 minutes of your night-time routine on some overnight curls! This simple hairstyle can be created in super-quick time and the longest part is sleeping on it – perfect for a lazy Sunday night. You can even apply this hairstyle to your Flip-In wefts with ease as well!

Beach Waves

You don’t have to use curling wands or straighteners to get the super-cute beach wave look! We’ve got a simple style for you to try out! Ensuring your hair is damp, split your hair in a middle-parting and weave in two Dutch braids on either side. This is another style you can leave overnight for better results! Use the Flip-In Original to add length to this windswept, tomboyish hairstyle.

Hair Styling Ideas

Space Buns

Right, it’s getting closer to your hair wash day and your luscious locks are feeling greasier as the hours go by. Of course, we could recommend some dry shampoo and send you on your way, but that’s not our style. You can choose either high or low space buns (we’d recommend high for ultimate grease coverage). Using a middle parting and some patience, twist each section into a bun for a cool and quirky look! For more volume use Flip-In wefts to create thicker buns.

90s Pigtails

As we’re all well aware, the 90s are back and Britney’s iconic pigtails are making the rounds this year. Put together a more modern version of this classic with the half-up/half-down style. Split the top sections in two, preferably using a middle parting, and easily create your pigtails! For an extra pop of colour use Flip-In Flash.

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!

The Secret to Long, Luscious Hair

Lockdown is slowly coming to an end and you might be thinking about giving your hair some TLC, whether you want to grow it out, restyle it or get extensions. Long hair is a timeless option that is guaranteed to have you looking glamorous. Read on and we’ll give you all the tips to keeping your hair looking lovely and long! 

Long hair can come with many ups and downs. We all love it, but we also have those days where we just wish it would do what we wanted. Sometimes, we get bored of having the same style of hair every day, and other times we get frustrated at how often it gets in the way. Long hair really is a labour of love – though, for the majority of us, the love tends to outweigh the labour! 

This is when Flip-In Hair Extensions shine. With Flip-In you can get the look you want without the hassle you’ve become accustomed to. All of our extensions take less than a minute to fit and literally seconds to remove, so whether you want to switch up styles on the go, or just add a bit of variety to your look – choose Flip-In and try our brilliant bespoke hair extensions today! 

 

Don’t Overwash It

It might sound silly, but overwashing your hair can have negative implications on its overall hygiene. If you overdo it in the shower then you are in danger of drying out your locks and tricking your body into thinking it needs to replace all those natural oils that protect your hair on the regular. If this happens, your hair can go into overdrive and produce more oils than necessary, resulting in what we all try to avoid: the dreaded greasiness. 

Washing too frequently can also dull the colour of your hair, making it look less shiny and more frizzy! 

 

Heat Protection

Heat protection, or protectant, is a product that you can apply to your hair, or hair extensions, that allows you to style it to your heart’s content without worrying about causing it any damage.  

It is important to point out that whilst all heat protection products reduce the risk of damage, there is no way to prevent this completely, meaning that you still have to practice safely treating and styling your hair. 

To use a heat protectant, simply apply it to damp or dry hair before using a hairdryer, straightener or any other appliance.

Springtime Hairstyles

The best looks with our Flip-In Extensions this spring!

At Flip-In Hair, we love that spring is right around the corner! From the smell of freshly cut grass to the appearance of leaves and flowers, we can start to see the new season coming into the picture. 

The first signs of sun are also keeping us going through the cold and wet spells. To celebrate, we thought we’d take a look at some of our favourite springtime looks that you can achieve with all of our Flip-In Hair products. Many people think of spring as the time of year to do something new. With the end of Lent and spring cleaning giving us that feeling of starting again, why not try out a new hairstyle this spring?

Soft curls

Nothing says spring like soft curls! With a half-up, half-down look, you can emphasise the length and texture of your hair. You can style your Flip-In Hair products just like your natural hair, so why not try curling your hair for that gorgeous spring look? Try adding a french-plait in for a flower-like finish. 

The Flip-In 

We don’t just love this hairstyle because of its name! The Flip-In, recently sported by J-Lo herself, is an homage to the 60s. With our Flip-In Extensions, you can add the volume needed to pull off this go-go glamour look. By styling the ends of your hair inwards, you can get this J-Lo-worthy hairstyle with ease! 

Colour match

Maybe spring for you just means a colour change? Go lighter in time for summer! At Flip-In Hair, we have over 40 colours for you to choose from, so we can always get your colour perfect!
