Hair Extension Trends


Hair extensions have been around for quite some time but at one time they were reserved for use only by the rich and the famous. Things have certainly changed, and now more than 60% of all women use or have used extensions in their lifetime. And why not? They allow you to add length, volume and style to your hair, creating a totally new, totally unique and totally phenomenal ‘do for any occasion.

Choosing hair extensions is always a lengthy process for a woman. There are so many different hair extension styles –literally hundreds of them- with just about any kind of design you could think of. There are various lengths and colours, various textures and brands. And, most importantly, there are trends in the hair accessory that you’ll certainly want to keep up with to ensure that you are hot enough to walk the red carpet at your event.  While all of the other factors are important in the selection and purchase of hair extensions, the latest trends is probably most important of all.

Trending Now

Many hair extension looks are inspired by celebrities and their current styles. We all love our favourite singers, actresses and models and mimicking their style is always a fun way to show our love.

With that in mind, the following style trends have been popular on the Gold Coast in late 2014/ early 2015.

Straight Ponytail: The straight ponytail look is one that is easy for any woman to achieve. It works well on any hair type, and can be worn for a day at the office or for an evening out with the ladies since it is versatile and can easily be pulled to the top, to the side of the head and more.  Kendall Jenner is just one celeb that we love to see sporting the long ponytail look!

Braid Bands: Braid Bands are also becoming a style more commonly seen on celebrities. The Braid Band consists of a strand, or one band, braided at the front of the hair. This is also a look that is versatile, so it can be worn in several different ways for a totally unique look. Celebrities such as Jada Pinkett Smith, Zoe Saldana and Nichole Richie have been seen on multiple occasions sporting their own bands.

Colourful Clip-Ons: Some celebrities (and regular people, of course) choose to colour their hair an irregular colour, such as red, blue or purple. If you would like to add a bit of colour to your hair without going to the extremes, you can do so with the help of colourful clip-ons, another popular hair extension trend of the year. You can add a little pop or colour or make heads turn with many clips in your hair, and there’s a ton of colours for you to choose from. Why not do something different than the other guys? Celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Demi Lovato, Lauren Conrad and Rihanna have all took their hair style to the next level with these bold colours.

Extended Length: The Extended Length style is also very popular on the Gold Coast as it has for quite a long time now. It’s just an easy style that gives any Gold Coast woman a fun and free look for any occasion. These extensions simply add length to the hair that is already there. Many women who have shoulder length or longer hair go for the extended length extensions. Women of all ages can extend the length of their hair (which can promote growth of your real hair) with this length extender. Stars like Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton and Uma Thurman all sport the long hair style and many also wear extensions to capture the look. Long extensions that extend the length of the hair are one of the most popular of all of the different extensions out there.

Short Styles: Halle Berry has rocked a short ‘do for about as long as anyone can remember and we must say that she looks good! She’s not the only one capable of rockin’ the short ‘do, nor is she the only one flaunting around Hollywood with only a little hair. There are a number of short extension styles that  can help you create an array of different styles so you’ll never tire with your look. Other celebs with awesome short hair (and possibly a few extensions) include Miley Cyrus, Ashlee Simpson, Anne Hathaway, and Ciara.
