Adding a little 'je ne sais quoi' to your hairstyle 🇫🇷
If like us you spent your Christmas downtime binge watching Emily in Paris, you too were probably inspired by not only the much coveted wardrobe but also some of the cute hairstyles she has rocked this season. We pull together all our favourites with tips on how to give these style staples a stylish french twist. Let's face it, both Gabriel and now the more recent love interest Alfie have the potential to let her down...but her wardrobe & hair will not!
You just can't beat a simple ponytail, wear it high and wear it full and accessorise with statement earrings. To give your ponytail that extra va va voom, use our Dual Volume Ponytail which literally clips onto your own ponytail. Short hair? Don't worry, as long as you can put your hair into a ponytail, you can hide shorter hairs within the hidden net section of this versatile piece. And if you want to really get a full bouncy ponytail, just flip the hairpiece upside down and clip on using the secure and discreet claw clip.
We thought this style was the perfect look to accompany a backless dress. And our Instant Plait will add all the extra volume you need to make the hairdo stand out. It also provides additional length to play with for those of you with slightly shorter hair. Just section the hair horizontally above your ears and clip in the plait hairpiece. Now do a back-to-front french plait on your own section of hair and work in the clip-in plait until you have french plaited about three quarters of the way down your head (pulling the bottom section of your hair up into the plait). Now plait the remainder of the hair and tuck it up underneath the plait you have made. Secure with clips and gentle tease the plait to add volume.
Oh how we fell in love with this whole look, a nod towards the beautiful tulle creation Carrie wears when she goes to visit Aleksandr Petrovsky in Paris. Here the simple bun is given a completely glamorous and luxurious glow up with the addition of hair jewellery. Get the look by creating a middle parting and attaching one of our Instant Buns, securing with clips. Add extra depth and dimension to the bun by using our Fishtail Headband which will create tiny plaits around the bun (again secure with clips / hair pins). Now complete by adding jewelled / silver or gold hair clips / pins / combs.
This is our prediction for THE hairstyle of S/S 2022! It screams Fashionista in France and is just so simple to recreate using our Instant Wigs. You can change the scarf to match your outfit and style it up with a Hermes Twilly, give it a 90's vibe with a paisley scarf or add a boho look using lace, beads or even fresh flowers. Section your hair and pin the fringe section out the way temporarily. Put the remainder of your hair into two buns (on on top of the other). Now attach the Instant Wig, position the front of the wig just behind your sectioned off fringe. Loosen your fringe section, style into a centre parting and tuck behind your ears, finishing the look with your chosen scarf.
Ok, this one is super straightforward and can be achieved with a set of our Original Clip-in Extensions. We've definitely noticed some lighter highlights in Emily's hair this season and reckon shade Rooted Bronze would be a good match for her. Use big barrel tongs to get her signature waves and note the little twist of hair over her ear - elevating a simple style to serious fashion credentials.
Right...we're off to binge watch 'And Just Like That' notebook in hand. Carrie iconic hairstyles blog pending... 🖤 🗽
