What hairstyle will you be trying on your clients this Christmas?
“I definitely think after all the short hair this past year, long hair will make a comeback. Think ultra-long, mermaid-like lengths. I love Beauty Works extensions to instantly create the ultra-long locks. Whether you want something temporary with clip-ins or semi-permanent with tape-ins or bonds, Beauty Works hair extensions are my favourite way to create natural-looking length and fullness.
What runway trends have inspired you?
“I’m always inspired by the trends on the runway. I love the sleek half up styles on the Marchesa runway and the wet looks at Hood By Air and Thakoon. My favourite way to instantly recreate any of these looks are with hair extensions”.
What’s the best way to get ready at work for a Christmas party or work night out?
“If you’re in a hurry I suggest clipping up half the hair, teasing the roots underneath and clipping in a pre-styled weft of hair extensions for instant glamour and fullness. Clip-ins instantly revive a look and make the hair look full and styled!
What’s your must have hair look/style for Christmas party season?
“Hair accessories and extensions! They are perfect for special occasions and add instant flare or drama to a style. I like to make sure the hair is the length and fullness I want with clip-in hair extensions, then perhaps add a decorative hair accessory to dress it up.”
You brought back the Double Braid for 2016, have you got a hairstyle that will be a big trend for 2017?
“I think 2017 we will see more fringe and sleek long ponytails with embellished hair accessories. Stay tuned with more from Jen in 2017!”Jen Atkin
