We recommend styling your hair into an updo so that the focus remains on the classic shoulder detailing. For an simple updo you can do at home, why not try using a hair piece, this super chic Ballerina Style Bun Hair Piece from Beauty Works is ideal.

If you’re wearing a Strapless Dress…
With strapless dresses, your shoulders, neck and chest can feel very exposed so why not go for gorgeous loose curls to soften the look. To get gorgeous curls fit for the red carpet, simply wash and dry your hair, then using a curling wand simply tong sections of hair into loose curls. Don’t forget to finish the look with a spritz of hairspray to hold hair into place. Add length and thickness to your hair with gorgeous high quality Remy Hair extensions, available online from Pauls Hair World.

Backless dresses are truly glamorous, therefore you need an equally elegant hair do to complement your dress. To avoid drawing attention away from the backless detailing, why no sleek your hair in to a pony tail, a favourite style with celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Beyonce. A simple style to do at home, first blow dry your hair straight and use a comb to slick back your hair into a hair tie. Use shine spray and hairspray to hold in place, wrapping a small piece of hair around the hair tie to disguise and secure with hair grips. To finish, straighten over your pony tail to give your hair that pin straight celebrity look! If you feel your hair is too short for this style, why not try clip in human hair extensions to give your hair some extra length this party season.

Nothing says festival chic quite like flowing waves. To pull off the look yourself, style your hair into loose waves with a waving iron – once you are at the festival, make sure you keep those waves refreshed with a regular blast of dry shampoo and extra hold hairspray.

Ombre was popular last summer, and with festival-goers embracing the look yet again it seems that the dip dye trend is still reigning high!

‘How-to’ create Selena Gomez: Funky French Braid


Heads turned as Selena Gomez stepped onto the red carpet at Sunday’s anticipated MTV Movies Awards. Her beautiful Julien Macdonald metallic minidress added a touch of glamour to the event and Selenas bold choice of hairstyle has been a key talking point this week.

We spoke with hair extension specialists at to find out how to recreate Selenas great look and get red carpet ready in 6 simple(ish) steps!

Step 1

If you’re lucky enough to have very long hair, this style will be pretty easy to complete. If not, Pauls Hair World recommends using clip in hair extensions to get the necessary length to complete the French braid, also adding thickness to the style.

Step 2:

Backcomb the hair on the crown of the head to create a small bouffant, and pin into place. We suggest using a backcombing brush available for only £2.99 to quickly get height and body instantly.

Smooth the hair and create 6 small pony tails down the centre of your head.

Step 4:

We suggest you ask a friend to help you with this step. Carefully create a french braid using all of the pony tails.

Step 5:

To get Selena’s tousled look, gently pull the braid apart slightly, and pin to the smooth area of your hair to ensure the ponytails are completely covered. Use the back comb brush to carefully backcomb the French braid to add to the messy look.

Step 6:

You’re ready for the red carpet! Spray with extra hold hair spray to keep down any flyaway hairs and keep your Selena pony looking great all evening.
