Found yourself crushing on the gorgeous looks sported by this year’s Love Island babes? You’re not alone! Social media has been buzzing with posts on the enviable bodies, brows and buns on display in the Summer’s must-watch TV show.
The long, glorious wavy hair preened, scrunched and flipped at every opportunity by this year’s contestants (male and female) has been of particular interest to beauty enthusiasts.
You may have caught a glimpse of the odd bonded extension, an effective but costly and time consuming method for adding length and volume to natural hair. If this permanent and high maintenance procedure is not viable in regards your schedule or Prada purse, the ideal alternative comes in the form of the versatile and cost effective half wig.
Introducing The Hollywood Icon Half Wigs
The Hollywood Icon Half Wigs are placed over your natural hair – that has been pulled back into a bun or plaited and clipped flat to the head. The hairpiece is then secured with 7 hair extension clips and blended with the front section of your hair. It’s essentially a full head of hair extensions in just one, easy to use hairpiece!
The half wigs are fully heat resistant and can be styled with the sprays, gels, mousse and serum that are part of your usual routine. Style the half wigs into your own, unique hairstyle, inspired by your choice of this year’s Love Island beauties.
7 Hair Colours Available Matched To The Love Island Contestants
If Tyla’s goddess-inspired hair is your bag, simply shake the half wig out before fixing to your head and apply some texturising root lift powder to the crown.
Chloe’s long, flowing locks have been pulled back to expose her perfectly made up face thanks to a strategically placed pair of sunglasses. To achieve the same flattering look, pull the front section of your hair back into a high ponytail to cover the edge of the hairpiece, adding volume to the crown.
The stunning Amber has been rocking this season’s ‘hun’ hairstyle with perfection. A great way to cover the edge of the half wig and stay on trend. Pull the front section of your hair up and over the front of the half wig and style into a mini top knot.
If a more effortless, laid back style à la Camilla is your desired look, fit the half wig to your head and then carefully brush through the hair lengths to relax the waves. Use straighteners on the ends to completely diminish the curl. Pin back your natural hair to cover the edge of the half wig and pull strands forward to replicate Camilla’s look.
To achieve the seductive, super sexy style as oozed by Jess, separate the hair lengths and brush through with a wide tooth comb. Work a generous dose of texturising sea salt spray with your fingers through each section. A great way to leave the hair tousled and relaxed with an ‘unstyled’ effect.
Leave your shorter layers loose, to flatter the face and apply a good root lift spray to add volume for Olivia’s style. This extra lift at the root helps to conceal the edge of the half wig.
For big sexy hair as sported by Montana, back-comb your natural hair around the crown area before applying the half wig. Use the back-side of a comb to gently smooth the hair down, covering the edge of the hairpiece. Continue back-combing each strand at the roots for extra lift and use a flexible hairspray for prolonged hold.
For gorgeous beach waves like Danielle’s, remove the deliberate curls from the half wig by straightening out the ends of the hair lengths with your GHDs. If you hair is a darker shade than the barbie-esque Miami Bleach colour, this blends nicely and creates an even more natural and laid back look.
