Look Like a Hollywood Celebrity: Styling Your Hair Extensions

look_a_like_hollywood_celeb.jpg

There are many reasons for getting hair extensions, one of them being the opportunity to transform your hair into any style you want. Whether you are struggling with hair loss or simply desire to have more volume for that Hollywood hair look, hair pieces and extensions are definitely worth looking into.

But what can you do with hair pieces? Thankful to the major advances in science and technology, human hair extensions can be styled just like your own hair. Since they are made with real human hair, there is no need to worry about using the right products or heat in order to style the hair.

Here are some of our favorite hair styles with extensions straight from the red carpet:

Jayma Mays

Jayma’s striking red hair is enhanced with extensions to add volume and length. Her stylist then gave her a clean yet tousled look that’s effortless and gorgeous. Try using a curling iron on medium heat, curling pieces of hair around the iron, and then slowly tugging the bunch down for those big curls.  

Minka Kelly

Minka added some serious length with her extensions for a more modern look. On top of that, her hair stylist added an ombré coloration to her real hair and the extensions, which is definitely possible with human hair pieces. When you get your extensions colored, be sure to find a stylist who’s worked with extensions before, and be sure to communicate any history of coloration done to that piece, as the chemicals may affect future applications.

Miranda Kerr

Miranda went for a classic and romantic look with a one-sided hairstyle to compliment her single strap dress. Professionally applied hair pieces won’t show even if you brush your hair to the side, giving you the freedom to create the hairstyle you want.

Be sure to also check out our post on how to care for your hair extensions, which can be very easy.

The Best Hairstyles from the 86th Academy Awards

The red carpet at the Oscars 2014 in Los Angeles have never looked better, and the hair that graced the screens were no exception. From Jared Leto to Cate Blanchett, the nominated (and winning) actors and actresses once again employed stellar Hollywood hair stylists that will set the trend for 2014. 

As they say, all "nominees" are winners in our book! HRC has kept their eyes glued to the screen looking for amazing hairstyles. Here are our four favorites:

At age 67, the legendary actress who we all "really really love" looked amazing in her gown, but what really blew us away was her full hair. A classic, layered haircut that was perfectly framed to her face, Sally Field wowed us with healthy-looking hair. Giving a very inspirational speech only moved us even more.

To achieve her hairstyle, you could use hair pieces underneath your hair to give a full, voluminous look. Add just a few, big curls tossed with some light hairspray, and you've got this classic look. See the variety of hair extensions options available to you from HRC.

Long hair for men is back in style this year, but one guy that particularly stood out was Dallas Buyer's Club Oscar-winning supporting actor, Jared Leto. We were definitely moved by his speech dedicated to his loving mother, but no one could get over the fact that this 42-year-old man wore long hair better than some of the women!

To achieve his sunkissed-ombre (or a manbre as some would call it) locks, men could add hair pieces or extensions to their hair. But since most men tend to lose hair at the top, you should try virtual reality hair, which is a hair replacement method that involves no surgery, and is much used in Hollywood and by other hair elites. Click here to get more information on this revolutionary technique.

 

Baby-bump-friendly gowns took to the red carpet this year, with Scandal actress Kerry Washington looking luxurious with a nice, full head of hair. It's not uncommon for women to have healthy hair during pregnancy, as the rise of estrogen promotes hair growth. However, after delivery, it is common for women to experience hair loss. Telogen effluvium, the second most common form of hair loss seen by dermatologists, occurs normally 1-5 months after pregnancy, when estrogen levels fall back to normal.

Kerry Washington showed up with a half-up/half-down hair style, with nice curls at the bottom. Try adding hair extensions to your hair to give your style a full look like hers. If you want to curl it, be sure to get natural hair extensions (like we use) instead of synthetic, as those would be damaged if you put hot metal to them.

Just because hair is short, doesn't mean that hair can't be styled. Supporting actor nominee for 12 Years a Slave, Michael Fassbender showed men everywhere that you can sport a messy look with short hair without looking like a California beach bum. On top of that (or rather, at the bottom of his look), Michael sports a full, great-looking beard, which is also coming back into style these days.

Men with hair loss who get virtual reality hair with us at HRC can also get this look and style it the same way as if it was your own hair. Read more about it here.

What hairstyle at the Oscars 2014 blew you away? Our staff here at Hair Restoration of California can help you achieve the look you want. Call us today to schedule a free hair consultation.

The Best Hollywood Hairstyles from the 2014 Golden Globes

Award shows are always a great place to catch a glimpse of what’s trendy (or going to become trendy) for hair. You may have watched the 71st Golden Globes for the films, but we were looking at the red carpet for the hottest hairstyles in Beverly Hills!

This year’s hairdos were a varietal mix of high and up to long and elegant. At least, it was for the women -- we’ll also feature our favorite men’s hairstyles as well. Let this list be an inspiration for your next haircut or style whenever you come in for treatment!

Ah, America’s beloved woman, Jennifer Lawrence refreshed the carpet with a soft and whimsical pixie cut. This is a great cut for women with soft features, or who simply just do not want to deal with a lot of hair! Jennifer may have chopped off her locks for an upcoming film, but we simply can’t get enough of this hairstyle. (Though, her dress may be a different story).

Leonardo DiCaprio, who won Best Actor for “Wolf of Wall Street”, may also receive Best Hair in the men’s category. Men can’t go wrong with a class comb-over, but Leo’s slicked-back style takes us back to the days when dapper men ran rampant (alright, maybe a little excessively speaking).

Actress Emilia Clarke graced the red carpet with a delicate and dainty hairstyle. This loose-curled hairstyle never goes out of style and is always a classic look that frames any face well. Try this style when you’re out for some casual errands, or even turn heads as you dine out in glamorous Hollywood.

If you have short hair, but you want to have this look, you can try adding some hair extensions to add length to your style. Curl the pieces and you’ve got instant volume!

The silver fox look for the silver screen -- actors like Michael Douglas have embraced grey and made it an elegant statement. Whoever said that grey hair looks old? It can look rather dashing, and studies have shown that women view men with gorgeous grey hair as mature and sexy.

Also, for having gone through chemotherapy for his throat cancer diagnosis in 2010, he’s still sporting a pretty good head of hair. In an interview with Oprah, he said he was actually more concerned about losing the ability to speak than hair loss. Though we’re unsure whether he sought out hair loss treatment following his radiation therapy, we applaud his full recovery and healthy hair!

So, no matter what hairstyle you’ve locked your eyes on in this red carpet, remember that attaining gorgeous hair can be easy, and it’s our job to help you get it. Come in today and let us know what celebrity has inspired your next hairstyle!
