The Royal Wedding - Prince William and Kate Middleton
We’ve been eagerly watching the Royal Wedding today at
HeadKandy HQ! We all love the happy couple, but we’re a little torn in the
office – some of us are a little blasé about the day’s events and some of us
want to party and celebrate with the onlookers in London!
We’re all in agreement that the ceremony was incredible and Westminster
Abbey was an amazing sight! We loved all the drama and the crowds gathered to
welcome Wills and Kate!!
We were so eager to see Kate’s dress, hair and make-up and
she certainly didn’t disappoint. Kate looked stunning in her white lace wedding
dress and really was a beautiful bride.
Kate’s veil has made some of us wonder whether we would want
to wear one on our own wedding day though…
We think Kate is blessed with naturally gorgeous hair and it was mostly hidden
by the veil for her Big Day. We would have loved to see her hair on show!
We’ve all really enjoyed the atmosphere for the Royal
Wedding here at HeadKandy and we think Kate and Wills are a lovely couple!
Congratulations both :)

We know you will
want to look your best for prom and that means a gorgeous dress, gorgeous
accessories and gorgeous hair!! We’ve picked a great selection of prom
hairstyles that are easily achievable with HeadKandy hair extensions.
The Chignon is always
a popular choice for formal or glamorous events; it looks great and is an easy
updo! A full head set in 16-18” or
20-22” would be perfect for this style, giving you thickness and volume!!
Fit your HeadKandy hair extensions and gather your extensions and your own hair
together in a low, loose ponytail at the nape of your neck.Secure this with an elastic.
Split your ponytail into two parts and twist both parts in a tight spiral.
Start at the base of the ponytail and gently curl the twisted ponytail into a
Secure your Chignon with hairpins to hold the style!
For something a little different, why not wear your Chignon to the side or
leave some hair loose around your face and add a few natural waves for a softer
look! A glitzy hair accessory would really set this style off!!
Old Hollywood Curls
This vintage hair style will really wow your friends! It’s sophisticated,
stylish and simple to do - it will look fab with any prom dress!!
First, fit your extensions (a HeadKandy full head set in 16-18” or 20-22” would
be best here), but leave out the top few wefts until later.
Create a low side parting and set your hair and your extensions in rollers
(Velcro or hot rollers should work best ... don’t forget to curl the wefts you
haven’t fitted yet as you will need them later).
Fit the rest of your extensions and then brush all the hair back away from your
face. Use a soft brush to brush out the curls a little. Tuck the smaller side
of the parting behind your ear slightly so it sits flatter to the head and
you’re ready to go!
Styling your hair half-up and half-down always works really well for prom
and the style is really adaptable and can be pulled off both curly and
Once you have fitted all of your hair extensions, apply a good quality heat
protection treatment and use jumbo curling irons to create gorgeous curls. Once
you’ve finished, gently brush the curls through to loosen them slightly. Take a
small section of hair from each side and bring them to the back of your head,
securing them with a glamorous clip.
Alternatively, you could wear the style straight and glam up with a tiara or
You could always add an additional Quad Weft to the crown of your head and
backcomb your own hair for uber volume!!
Uber length with waves/curls
If you prefer to wear your hair long and luxurious then a full head set in
24-26” is perfect for giving uber length! This looks great worn in loose curls
or waves (think Miley Cyrus!) and would be gorgeous for prom!
For large waves or curls, use a 38mm jumbo curling tong or for smaller curls or
waves try a 24mm curling tong (but be sure to use a good quality heat
protection treatment first). You can brush the curls through gently after
styling for a softer look!
All of the above styles will look simply gorgeous for your prom; you’re bound
to turn heads and you certainly won’t be left in the corner for the last dance!

Kim Kardashian at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards
Kim Kardashian looked super gorgeous
at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards last weekend and you can re-create her
cute hair style with HeadKandy hair extensions.
The 30-year-old reality TV star,
there to present the award for Favourite TV Show, worked the catwalk alongside the
young stars of TV and pop music. She flaunted her curves
in a nude, plunging mini dress and looked truly ah-mazing.
Her hair was worn long with a loose, natural looking wave. Her usually side swept
fringe was replaced with a pulled back braid. This style is perfect for
keeping unruly fringes away from your face in the summer; it’s very easy to
achieve and looks great with any length hair.
To achieve Kim’s fab look, start by fitting your extensions (any length full
head would work really well) and then side part your hair - remember to
position the side wefts a little further away from the frame of your face (this
will stop them being noticed when your hair is braided). After applying some
heat protection, use large barrelled tongs to add a soft wave to your
extensions and your hair. Tonging your hair and extensions together will help
blend the ends of your hair with the extensions!
Once the overall waved look is accomplished, all that is left is the
Section off the front
of your hair (generally this would be in line with your ear) on the side which
has more hair so you plait/braid looks nice and thick. Taking the top 2 inches
of this section split into 3. Hold the hair at slight backwards angle and fold
the right side outer section over the middle, then the left side over the
middle. Continue this motion all the way to the end of your hair and secure
with an elastic. Plaiting/braiding your hair at an angle means it will have a
little movement at the roots and will blend in with your waved hair.
This look can be made
uber summery by adding in some floral clips or bobbles or you could add a cute bow.
Other celebs at the
Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards were looking equally fab! Miley Cyrus was rocking
long waves (this look is perfect for a 24-26” full head set) and Selena Gomez
wore her shoulder length hair loose with a slight, natural wave. A 12-14” full
head in Iced Coffee would be great for Selena’s subtle ombre look!
