Getting a set of bangs is a fantastic way to create a more youthful appearance. Whether you’re thinking of a soft, wispy fringe, or a trendy and glamorous curtain bangs hairstyle, face-framing pieces are always a great choice to take some years off of your face. If you’re not ready for a big chop, you can always experiment with clip in bangs before booking an appointment to get a haircut! This hair accessory is also perfect for those who like to experiment with their appearance, changing looks every now and then.
The Long Bob
The long bob, also known as “lob”, is a trendy and versatile style that suits almost all face shapes. Now more popular than ever thanks to the return of glamorous 90s midi lengths, this haircut adds structure to your look and is capable of enhancing your features. For a fuller appearance, adding clip in hair extensions can help boost volume (or even add length for whenever you feel like switching things up).
Waves and Curls
Soft waves or loose curls are often associated with romantic, youthful looks – and it’s easy to see why! From mermaid waves to soft curls and bouncy ringlets, this type of hairstyles works wonders in giving a rejuvenating kick to your tresses. You can use curling wands on your natural hair and hair extensions to achieve an enchanting wavy hairstyle, but why not try a more gentle method?

The High Ponytail
A high ponytail sitting on top of your head isn’t just an incredibly glam hairstyle, it can also serve as an instant facelift! Using a wrap around ponytail hair extension can help you achieve the length and thickness you desire, giving you a pony ‘do worthy of Kim Kardashian’s Instagram feed. A tight, sleek ponytail hairstyle will emphasize your cheekbones and open up your face for a fresher look.
This short and chic hairstyle is for the daring. Much like Jamie Lee Curtis, adopting a pixie cut screams confidence and can accentuate your features, giving you a youthful and edgy appearance that you can play around with by trying on new outfits, and new make up styles. It’s a liberating type of hairstyle that some may find hard to brave at first, but a true confidence boost once you embrace it. And for those who’d like to get their length back after a while, but don’t feel like waiting years to regrow their natural tresses? The solution is nano ring hair extensions – needing only a few inches of length to be fitted for a glamorous makeover.
Layered Mid-Length Cut
As I previously stated, midi-lengths are back. Some 90s iconic haircuts such as the Rachel and its variations are now a trendy option for those looking to freshen up their looks with a new hairstyle. A mid-length cut with layers can add bounce and movement to your hair, making you look vibrant and youthful. This type of hairstyle is also quite versatile, working really well with clip in hair extensions for those looking to change hairstyles or add beautiful highlights to their tresses over summer.
If Chris Appleton, hair god of all celebrities, says that big hair is gonna have a moment, then lest assured: big hair is gonna have a moment. The big, fluffy and voluminous hairdo’s seen on Lana Del Rey, Matilda Djerf, and Cindy Crawford before them are an absolute must to try. For this reason, our range of Ultra Volume hair extensions works wonders – boosting your mane with thickness, volume, bounce and movement like nothing else. An updo with volume at the crown can make you look younger by elongating your face shape, whilst big fluffy curls can frame your features with grace and glamour. The ideal hairstyle to try in order to look (and feel) like a diva!
Slicked Back Look
Whilst some of us prefer the big fluffy ‘dos, some others are being seduced by the sleek hairstyle moment. Celebrities such as Dua Lipa, Kim Kardashian and Bella Hadid have all dipped into this trend and found solace in a slicked back look such as the model-off-duty bun, a tight ponytail, or a wet-effect hair down style. Sleek, chic hairstyles like poker-straight tresses or a spiky bun can create a more structured and youthful face shape. Use hair extensions for a fuller finish and a high-shine hair gel to achieve the slicked-back style. Want to know more? Find your inspiration in our post: Our Favorite Sleek Hairstyles.
The balayage isn't a haircut per se, but a glamorous and delicate coloring technique inspired by the naturally lightening effect of the sun. To achieve this “Barbie California” look, your hairdresser will perform a series of strokes with bleach on your mane, recreating a youthful, sun-kissed look. To experiment without commitment, use balayage hair extensions that blend seamlessly with your natural hair.
Braided ‘dos like a pair of classic plaits, Dutch braids or even a long and thick French braid can elevate your look with a naturally boho-chic, sophisticated vibe. Particularly loved during summer, this type of hairstyles works wonders with every face shape. On top of that, braided hairstyles are particularly indicated to shelter hair and hair extensions from the wind, and are particularly indicated for those who enjoy an active lifestyle and outdoors activities.
Remember, confidence is the key to pulling off any hairstyle. Spreading a message of beauty at any age is fairly simple, and the number one rule is: don’t be afraid to experiment! Find your hairstyle and colour and know that your creative expression can’t be stopped by the number of birthday’s you’ve celebrated so far. The right hairstyle can not only make you look younger but also boost your self-esteem and make you feel fabulous!
