We had a fantastic weekend at the Afro Hair and Beauty show at the Business and Design Center in Islington. We launched two new lines of hair Virgin Gold (our new Brazillian and Peruvian hair, the ultimate luxury!) and Viva (our new human hair range) both of which flew off the stands to a great reaction! Thank you so much if you stopped by and said hello. We loved seeing everyone!

If you bought any weave or wig off us at the weekend please tweet in a picture of it to @hairbysleek or send us a Facebook message (Facebook.com/hairbysleek) and we’ll put them up here on the Blog! For now here are some of our pictures from the weekend, which include winners from our raffle, our staff hard at work and people wearing the lace wigs they got fitted at our stand.

Zoe Saldana is kicking ass once again in the new Star Trek film ‘Into Darkness’ and we are loving her hair, it’s out of this world and always changing. Miss Saldana isn’t afraid to take risks with her hair and we respect that. Changing up your hair and having fun with you style is important! So we’re giving you a Sleek 101 on Zoe’s fresh and funky hair.

Let’s start out with her shoulder length waves. Zoe is classically known for rocking some perfect waves in her shoulder length do. Her hair is shiny, healthy and flawless and you can get this look too with Sleek’s Remy Touch Choice range. For those fabulous waves we’d suggest going for our Madrid Weave. The hair is infused with essential oils and will stay looking soft and natural for longer than regular human hair. The highest quality look for the perfect Zoe hair!

Zoe likes to mix it up and has been known to chop off her hair to a curly bob. Curls are big this summer; no-one is after straight, flat hair at all so this style is really bang on trend. Her curls here are soft, shiny and full of life and we know that when you want extensions to imitate this you’ll want the best quality hair. So go for Sleek’s Remy Touch Choice Dubai Weave. The hair is the highest quality meaning your hair holds its style for longer.

Summer is around the corner, and ponytails are SO all the rage this season. Wear them up high or down low, what matters is that they are the go-to it looks for your hair. Zoe knows how to class up a high ponytail with a slight quiff and lots of length with a slight wave to the hair. If you want this style quickly and easily we suggest going for our EZ Synthetic Ponytail in Flirty. It’s quick and easy to put in and looks fabulous!

 

Oprah is Queen in our eyes and she’s been reining an awful lot of years but always changing up her style to suit the times and always looking fabulous! She’s evolved a lot through a lot of strong fashion era’s (the 80’s and the 90’s were not an easy time for anyone! We should know!) but she’s always come out on top looking polished and flawless. So let’s take a look back over some of Oprah’s best looks and how you can recreate them quickly and easily with Sleek Hair!

Ponytails are SO on trend right now, catwalks, high street and all the magazines are showing models with ponytails, low and high! Oprah has been rocking the ponytail for years and this is a great example of how to do it right. Here she’s pulled it right back with a bit of a quiff and has it high, long and sleek. Not a hair out of place on her head! You can grab this look so easily with our Sleek EZ Ponytails. Clip one in and away you go with a sleek, sophisticated look.

oprahcurls

Oprah knows how to rock some curls. They are always perfectly formed and bouncy, whether she’s rocking them long or short, loose or tight, she’s always bang on trend. We love this look here, ringlet tight curls down to the shoulder. We love this look for big nights out where you need to look glamorous and grab loads of attention. Go for our Fashion Idol 101 Kizzy Wig, for the perfect curls. If you want them bigger and bolder this hair is tongable and the highest quality in synthetic hair, it will hold your style longer and better!

oprahshort

We’re not all brave enough to go short, but Oprah is fearless and has gone from long to super short pixie hair countless times. We love this look, which really shows off the face. The bangs that are choppy and low make it a little less extreme and frame the face really nicely. What’s the secret to going short and having no fear? Lace wigs. If you want to go super short but not go under the scissors then go for the Wig Fashion Human Hair Audrey Wig. It has that great short length, a great side swept fringe and looks completely natural.

oprahlayers

One last Oprah look for you today, the layered look with the flicked out ends. This is such a go to classic that never seems to go out of style. It’s great because it’s so versatile, you can wear it for work or play, night or day and it transcends season. It’s an all rounder this look, and in this picture Oprah has really styled it out, she looks sophisticated and stylish. You can get this look without all the fuss of straightening and blow drying with our Wig Fashion Kelly Wig. It’s 100% high quality tongable synthetic hair with ends that are styled to flick out perfectly!

 

Snapshot-Tia-and-Tamera-Mowry-For-Essence-April-2013 TIATAMARA

Is it us or have Tia and Tamara not managed to age from when we watched them in Sister Sister growing up? We know we’ve all got 15-20 years older but they both look fabulous! The girls now have a hit reality show, babies, husbands and all sorts and recently took to the cover of Essence  Magazine where they both look glowing don’t  you think?

Tia is now sporting cropped hair, and Tamara long straight, layered hair. You can recreate both these styles with Sleek!  We all know that going for the short hair crop is a scary thing, and if you’re not feeling brave enough to go as short as Tia you can get the look with the Wig Fashion Ella  Wig, which is made from 100% Human Hair. To be more like Tamara go for the Wig Fashion Synthetic Jada Wig. It has the side part and the super sleek straight look you want from this style!

So it was the Oscars weekend and we stayed up to see all the pretty couture dresses taking to the red carpet because let’s face it, there’s nothing we at Sleeklove here more than some awesome couture gowns and some perfectly done hair. So we’ve put together the most epic of long posts for you here to show you just how to get your favourite stars Oscars look. Whether it was the Red Carpet Glam you were after or the Vanity Fair after party glitz, we have both here on display. Let’s get to it!

HBERRY

Let’s start off with Miss Halle Berry. Looking everything glitzy in her plunging neckline Versace gown, Halle lived up to our expectations entirely. She is never one to shy away from something a bit different on the Red Carpet and we do worry sometimes she takes things a bit too far in the wrong direction but this is spot on. She had her trademark short hair up in soft spikes, adding more drama to her look, her short her suits her down to the ground. We know that not everyone wants to take the plunge into short hair though, and that’s where Sleekcomes in to play! Try out our Wig Fashion Human Hair Gloria Wig, for a short spiky style without having to commit to getting rid of your own locks! Easy!

JHUD

Jennifer Hudson looked like a dream in blue on the Red Carpet for the Oscars. She wore a Roberto Cavalli long sleeved, blue sequin gown. It fit like a glove and left her looking like something a bit like a classy, chic little Mermaid. We loved the colour and the shine! Her hair was the talking point at Sleek HQ though, have you ever seen such perfectly straight long locks with such a perfect statement fringe? So on trend right now and a look we’re truly coveting. To get this yourself go for the Hair Couture Soft Net Wig Sandy. The hair is perfectly straight and the high quality means you get no frizz and your fringe stays fabulous!

KROW

Kelly Rowland must be taking lessons of Beyonce, because she has been kicking it on the Red Carpet lately with her flawless selections of couture. Monochrome is so on trend right now, showing all over fashion week and Miss Rowland’s black and white strapless Donna Karan gown is perfectly chic, we love the big of leg she’s showing too. Makes the whole ensemble more playful.  We also love her hair pulled up into this braided bun paired with this super blunt cut, full fringe. Have some fun recreating this look with Hair Couture accessories! Swirl Bunnywill give you the perfect bun; try wrapping around some Headband Hair Braidsto give it an interesting edge. We even have a Hair Couture clip in front fringe, for the perfect blunt cut, full bangs. The entire on trend look with none of the effort.

KWASH

Oh Kerry Washington, you are so pretty! We’ve loved watching Kerry rock every Red Carpet she comes across from all of the Django Unchained press to all of the awards shows; her fashion choices are always unique and daring in a crowd of really bland beige ensembles. Kerry just looked divine in her coral Miu Miu couture gown. We love the embellished bodice against the simple coral gown and the train was to die for. Not many ladies can carry off such a colour and such a bodice but Kerry works it all well. The trick to this is her hair and makeup is super simple. She’s middle parted her long locks and kept them pushed behind the shoulders and straight. To get this look go for Sleek’s Spotlight Dainty Synthetic Lace Wig. It’s perfectly straight and frames your face well; also the lace front means it has versatile parting options that always look natural. Experiment like Kerry and see what you can achieve!

NHARRIS

Naomi Harris really was a golden girl on the Red Carpet. We loved her edgy embellished, gold gown with a daring split by Vivienne Westwood; she looks like she’s trying to be one of the statuettes themselves! She really compliments the look with her accessories, which are also gold but look stunning and provide some glitz to everything that’s going on here. Her hair is classic, a deep side part and long curls pulled over one shoulder which really is Old Hollywood Glamour 101 and a look you can’t go wrong with for a formal event. If you want to go for this deep parting go for Sleek’s Fashion 101 Lily Synthetic Lace Wig. The handmade full lace at the front and the back mean you can part your hair in all sorts of places and it will still look natural. The style itself has the curls to create the glamour! What are you waiting for?

OSPEN

Octavia Spencer looked amazing on the Red Carpet. Her one shoulder, blush tulle gown with a hand-beaded bodice and lace underlay couture gown from Tadashi Shoji really just suited her so well. She looked like a princess, but a classy princess not a childish Barbie princess. The colour is so subtle and it just really gives this a floaty, dreamy, romantic feel. With such a pretty, but quite heavy dress we are glad she went with a simple up do and a fringe. Seeing the trend with big fringes now right? Go for a playful up do using Sleek’s EZ Ponytails as a base, we’d suggest the Euro Long in this case. Then perhaps use a clip in Hair Couture Fringe to get your bangs bang on, and then go find your best couture gown (or some jeans, jeans are good too!).

ZSAL

Last but by no means least we have Zoe Saldana. She look absolutely elegant in a gray crepe bustier gown with a belted waist and feminine floral applique neckline from Alexis Mabille. The four tones on the skirt and train of this we LOVE. Who knew grey could look so good? Though perhaps it’s a little busy on top, take away the bow or the belt and you have perfection right there! Zoe is pairing this look up with a really chic and sleek wavy shoulder length do. It’s so simple and so perfect for her outfit. You can grab this look yourself with Sleek’s Wig Fashion Angelina Synthetic Wig. Go for a side parting and keep your curls on your back for a clean finish. Oscar perfect in no time at all!

 

Bright colour is the must have summer look. Nicki Minaj always looks fierce!

 
SPRING CLEAN YOUR LOCKS.
Winter is always so harsh on hair, and this winter we’ve had has been so bitterly cold. The extremes in temperature, the frost, bitter winds, snow, rain and just generally awful AWFUL weather and of course the enemy of hair HATS (we know we need them, and we do love a good woolly hat but hat hair is always the inevitable outcome with a hat!) all wear out our hair, whether you’re going natural or wearing a weave and we have to take special care of it. Also winter makes hair dry, and we all go at it so much with heat styling to try and fight the frizz that at Sleek HQ we feel that before Spring bounces on us we should go about giving our tresses a good Spring Clean.


TIME OUT.
This is the perfect time of the year to give your hair a time out. Natural hair needs to have some time to breathe and what better time to give it than right now when the weather is still a bit nippy and you can wear a hat, or style it up in an oh so of the moment ponytail or up do. If you don’t fancy just having your natural hair, you can always use a clip in ponytail or a half wig instead of a full wig of weave. But use this time to really deep condition your natural hair, since it’s the base for your weave and wigs you want it to be strong and healthy!

PROTECT.
Don’t neglect your natural hair once you have your weave on! It still needs to be looked after and we recommend applying oil to the edges of the braids to nourish your hair. You can do this once every two weeks when you wash your weave. We also suggest you do a protein treatment as well as an extra maintenance measure. Before going to sleep braid your hair into sections, this stops your hair tangling whilst you sleep and then cover your hair with a silk scarf to help protect the shine. This will all make your hair last longer and look fresh from day one to day 60.

INVEST.
Good quality hair is always going to be the best hair for you to be wearing. We know there are cheap, synthetic and human hair brands on the market but you get what you pay for. Cheaper hair is never as good condition and sheds more than a quality product. Sleek Hair is all made from premium hair, whether we’re using human hair, Brazilian, Remy or synthetic. Our hair is all sew together and wefted expertly to prevent shedding and is proven to be long lasting and to keep its shine. We’re proud of our end product and we know you will always feel fabulous and beautiful in it!
