Our Girl's Celebrity Hair Stylist, Holly Edwards shows us how to get pink summer hair in an instant.
31st Jul 2018
It was great to have celebrity makeup artist and hair stylist, Holly Edwards creating our beautiful hair looks for our last hair extensions photoshoot. I have been lucky enough to have Holly style my hair and makeup for a previous photoshoot for Essex Life Magazine for their fashion pages. I wanted to get Holly back to work on one of our Undercover Glamour photoshoots. Holly's client list is impressive, she is well known in the film world and had worked in the hair department for 5 years on Game of Thrones as well as her recent stint on the popular new series, Our Girl with Michelle Keegan.
Holly wanted to create a warm, fun festival hair look with our Clip in Hair Streaks and she shares with us on how she got the look. Holly used our Classic range clip in hair extensions in Golden Blonde which is our colour no.18, this was a perfect match with our model's own hair colour. The hair extensions and the hair streaks used are 18 inches in length and our model, Lauryn Goodman is 5ft 2. Holly used our Rose Pink Hair Streaks to instantly add the pink to the hair. See the gorgeous pictures of model, Lauryn Goodman below.

Holly shares her hair styling secrets with us for how she got the above look;
"For the hair prep with the hair extensions, I tonged the hair using Babyliss Pro Tongs to put a nice wave in the extensions. I used a spritz of L’Oreal professional Tecni Pli on each section of hair to protect against the heat and to help set the hair. Before applying the extensions I took a straight section of hair across Lauryn's head and backcombed her natural hair and added a little spray of batiste for extra hold, I then clipped in the extensions near to the scalp and where I had just backcombed - easy! To create more of a wave in the hair, I brushed through the curls with a soft bristle brush. Set the hair with a little Elnett hair spray and finished with a shine spray - the Bumble & Bumble shine spray is one of my favourites."

Lauryn Goodman is also wearing Eylure's new no.117 Texture lashes in the pictures. These lashes are also a personal fav of Caroline Flack. We love them for their natural look, and you can see our range of our favourite Eylure lashes on our Eyelashes page, www.undercover-glamour.com/false-eyelashes
The before and after picture below shows the difference the clip in hair extensions have made to Lauryn Goodman's hair, instantly adding volume and thickness to her own hair. The Pink Hair Streaks also instantly added warmth and colour to Lauryn's hair. Holly used the Classic range of our Undercover Glamour clip in hair extensions. There are 6 pieces per set of hair extensions, so 2 pieces with 2 clips and 4 pieces with 3 clips. The 2 clip pieces are perfect to use nearer the top of your head at each side near the front. Our Classic range of hair extensions that are 18 inches in length has 130 grams of hair per set. The Classic range are perfect for everyday wear and are light to wear, and you can see the natural look they have in Lauryn Goodman's hair. We also do a Deluxe range in this length which has more hair per set (220 grams of hair, compared to the 130 grams in the Classic range).
