Drinks with Friends

So you’re a little tired after a big week of work or study but still ready to share a couple of cocktails and laughs with the girls. It will probably be an early night so you want to get your hair done quick so you can spend more time enjoying yourself with your favourite friends. For nights like these, we love this half up fishtail braid!

To achieve this look follow the steps below:

  1. Take two even sections from the front of your hair to twist back and tie together.
  2. Thread this section over and through to create a twisted effect. Add hair from underneath and split into two sections to start your fishtail braid.
  3. Take small pieces from either side and wrap over to the middle.
  4. Repeat this process a third of the way down the hair and secure with an elastic.
  5. Gently pull sections of the braid to loosen and add volume.
  6. Repeat this process another third of the way down the hair.
  7. Optional: Finish the look by adding metal hair rings to conceal the elastics.

This look features our 24 inch Quadlux Clip In Hair Extensions in Dark Chocolate Brown #2.

Hitting the Club

If you have a dance fueled Saturday night planned, you need a fun hairstyle to match! We love this braided ponytail look for nights out dancing as it is super cute and will stay in place all night. This is definitely one of our favourite Saturday night hairstyles.

To achieve this look follow the steps below:

  1. Brush through your hair to ensure it’s tangle free and then create a clean centre parting.
  2. Section 2 inches on one side of your part and then take another small section from the front. Split this into three parts.
  3. Next, it’s time to start braiding. For this look, you’re going to want to do a french braid. The key to this technique is to pick up more hair from each side as you cross the outer sections over and into the middle.
  4. Repeat this all the way back until you reach the crown of your head, then continue on with a regular braid and secure in place with an elastic.
  5. Then, repeat steps 3 and 4, three more times, until you have 2 braids either side of your part.
  6. Gather all your hair into a ponytail and secure in place with an elastic (this can be a low, high or medium ponytail).
  7. Now for our favourite part – applying your ponytail extensions! This completely transforms your hair and brings the whole look together. Simply slide the clip into the base of your ponytail, wrap the small section around and pin in place.
  8. Finish the look with some boho curls and your hair is complete for a night on the town!

This look features our Ice Queen Platinum Blonde #60 – 22 inch Human Hair Ponytail.

Relaxing Dinner

Maybe you’re ready to relax this weekend and would rather keep in simple with a nice Saturday night dinner. For nights like these, we love this romantic half up twist look that is simple and easy to achieve.

  1. Apply your ZALA hair extensions for instant length, volume and thickness.
  2. Once the extensions have been applied use a medium sized curling want to add loose curls.
  3. At the crown area, take a medium sized section of hair from one side, twist back and pin into place. Repeat this on the other side, twisting back and pinning into place over the first piece.
  4. Repeat this process by taking more pieces from either side, twisting and altering on top. Continue until you’re happy with the results.

This look features our 20″ Honey Beach Highlights #18/613 9 piece set.

This is the standard curling barrel and is an essential part of the set. This barrel creates the perfect bouncy and voluminous curl. Use this barrel to add volume to your hair for a fail-safe, glamorous look!

Beaded 25mm Barrel

This head creates gorgeous beachy waves/curls. With a unique beaded design, the hair is wrapped between each bead to create a textured look. Try this barrel along with some salt spray for added texture for the ultimate beach babe look!

Spiral Barrel 32mm

Finally, the spiral 32mm barrel creates gorgeous spiral shaped curls. All you have to do is wrap a section of hair around the wand, following the grooves. This creates a beautiful bouncy curl which can kept tighter or left to drop slightly and soften out.
