We Love Big Buns!

Have you ever wondered how to achieve a stylish big bun look? No it’s not down to the length of your hair but simply with some bun shapers! Exclusive to HQhair.com these nifty bun shapers come in black or blonde and are only £2.85

They are super easy to use. Just tie your hair into a pony tail, pull your pony tail through the hole to the top and then wrap your hair back around the shaper so the bun resembles a doughnut. Secure the shape with a hair band, you may want to tuck or wrap the extra hair around with kirby grips.

Put a plum in it

Cheryl was obviously a fan of plum before she dyed her hair!

It seems like everyone is going crazy for plum, first of all Cheryl Cole shows the world how she has de-WAGed her look by swapping her highlighted extensions for a new plum colour and then Peaches Geldof announces her new plum do with the aid of twitter. Although both hair-dos have received mixed reviews from the fashion brigade the WAG and the rock chick are bang on trend with the autumn collection.
The girls in the HQ office reckon Sharon Osbourne must be delighted, she has been pushing the plum look for years and finally she’ll have loads of products on the market to support her plum locks! HQhair’s make-up expert, Jasmine says, “Plum hair is actually a really versatile colour to match with make-up, like Cheryl you could wear pearly pink colours or alternatively you could go down the more traditional root and match a plum hair-do with darker reds and purples like Peaches”. Jasmine recommends checking out the brand new NARS Fall collection which we should have online next week, “I’m really excited about this collection, the colours are going to be perfect for Autumn!” In the mean time we recommend you take a look at DuWoop’s eye palettes as they have some great Autumn browns.
