Get the look from London Fashion Week

You can always expect something weird and wonderful at London Fashion Week. This year there were a few outrageous sites on the runway but overall the style was very classic with plenty of originality, creativity and quirkiness.

The key to adapting catwalk styles to your everyday life is simple. You can create the look by identifying a few trends and making them work for you.

We’ve identified four key hair and beauty looks you can try yourself. Dooa has a range of beauty brands that can help you inject a little model glamour into your life.

Side Pony Tail

This has been skirting around the edges of fashion for a while and its presence on the catwalk at London Fashion Week suggests it will be a key style for spring and summer.

If your hair is slightly shorter then remember you can use Clip’N Go Hair Extensions by Dream Girl to elongate your locks and add a little volume. Simply attach from the nape of the neck and work up to the crown.

Comb hair with your fingers, this isn’t a look that needs to be too ‘finished’. Gather hair over one shoulder and make a side parting on the other side of your head. Tie hair to just behind the ear. Arrange a few strands to fall around your face.

Finish with a little spray that is suitable for use with Hair Extensions and you’re ready to hit the streets.

Statement lips

Match your side pony tail with a statement lip. Red was the colour of the runway at this year’s London Fashion Week.

For lips to have the biggest impact, you need to treat them before you add any tint.

Exfoliate lips gently, you can use a toothbrush to do this then moisturise thoroughly. If lips aren’t smooth then the colour will flake off. Apple the first layer of colour, be it a lipstick by Dream Girl or even a lip gloss, using a brush. This will ensure you get and even distribution of colour. Once the first layer is dried add the second.

A quick beauty tip, set the colour by pressing your lips against a tissue, this take off the excess and helps it dry faster and stay in place.

With a statement lip you need not wear much eye makeup. Simply add a flick of mascara and you’re ready to go.

Bouffant hair

Big voluminous hair has been a major look on the red carpet for 12 months. This London Fashion Week it returned to the catwalk but with a cute twist.

This is a real sixties style and adding a hairband like the model here will help keep hair off your face and emphasise the volume at the crown.

For those of us with fine hair we may need a little bit of help to achieve this look.

Hair Extensions, whether those sewn or glued in by a stylist, or Dream Girl’s Clip’N Go Hair Extensions are the easiest and the quickest way to add instant volume.

Once extensions are fitted, brush hair back gently from the hairline. If you have a fringe you may need to use a little hairspray to make sure it stays smooth.

Add even more volume with a little backcombing. Simply hold a lock of hair straight up and comb gently towards the scalp with a wide toothed comb.

For the headband you want something thin. Begin by slotting above the ears and then push back the hair so it is flat at the front, and then volumised at the crown.

Natural look

The natural look is always great for spring.

A healthy glow with clear skin and bright eyes are the only accessories you need for this look.

However, natural doesn’t mean you can’t get a little help.

For your hair, gentle waves look best with this style. If you hair is straight remember to look at Dream Girl’s Waves and Curls range of Hair Extensions which will add texture and volume to your own locks. Opt for Hair Extensions that will last a few months, or one’s you can add and take out by yourself. This is a natural look so remember to use Dream Girl’s Colour Comparator to match Hair Extensions to your own shade as closely as possible.

Style with a side parting.

For your skin, ensure you use a good moisturiser and then add a few dots of concealer to cover any blemishes or dark circles under the eyes. Opt for a soft natural lip colour and instead of blusher try a Bronzing Powder like Dream Girl’s Medium Bronze to add a hint of colour.

Keep eyes natural and brush eyebrows. If they are very fair either use an eyebrow brush or even a little brown eye shadow to add a little dark.

Put a spring in your step with some colour

When it’s so gloomy outside we can always inject a little colour to look forward to spring.

Pinks, blues, greens our nails, lips, eyelids and even our hair can be used as a palette to cheer our mood. It’s amazing what colour can do, so while we wait for the sun to return let’s take control of our look and add a little joy.

Dooa supplies a range of make up, as well as Hair Extensions that offer a bolder shade this season. As everyone prepares for London Fashion Week here is our guide to some of the colours you’ll see on the catwalk and how you can fit them into your makeup bag.

A flash of Pink

Pink is a big part of the spring colour this year. Soft gentle hues but also bold, bright shades will be the go to colour for jeans, dresses and jackets. But it’s also a great shade for your lips.

Flash from Dream Girl’s Lipstick Collection is ideal if you want to make a statement with your lips. Match with a soft blush and just a flick of mascara for full impact. A sheer gloss and lasting finish it’s an ideal colour for a night out, or even if you want to add a little glamour to your working day.

Don’t be Blue

Blue is a great colour that matches so many skin tones. Blue lipsticks and nail varnishes have been spotted on the catwalks over the past few months. If you’re not ready to take that leap but want to try the shade why not opt for eye shadow?

Dream Girl’s collection of Duo Eyeshadow offers two for the price of one. You can either wear each shade on its own, or mix to create a new one that’s just for you. Diva matches a gentle blue that’s the colour of a sky on a summer’s day along with a soft green. The colour can be used on the eyelids either as a block of colour or, using a brush you can draw a line just above your eyelid to replace liner and make a bold statement.

Purple Pleasure

Lilac and light purple are a key trend this season. Using your nails as a palette is an easy way of making sure you’re on trend from head to toe.

Dream Girl’s Nail Polish Collection includes Catwalk which is a lilac shade that can be used as a nod to a runway style. You can either match to your outfit or use as a contrast for a cutting edge look.

Dream Girl Clip’N Go Hair Extensions are ideal if you want to create a look for a special night out. Easy to fit without needing any help it means you can transform your hair in minutes.

Step 1

Visit Dream Girl’s online store. Clip’N Go Hair Extensions are created using 100% human hair. Great care is taken to ensure each strand it sitting the same way and is placed correctly and securely. This means the extensions provide a more natural and healthy looking finish. It also means Hair Extensions will last longer.

Use Dream Girl’s Colour Comparator to select a colour closest to your own.

Pick the right Hair Extensions for you. Whether your hair is straight, wavy or curly, long or mid-length there is a range of styles and lengths to suit everyone.

Step 2

To use Clip’N Go Hair Extensions, make sure your hair is washed and styled normally.

In your pack you will receive 10 strips. There are four large strips to cover the crown of the head, two medium strips to cover the bridge of the neck and four small strips to cover the side of the head and to frame the face.

Lay your Hair Extensions in front of you so they are tangle-free and flat.

Begin at the nape of the neck. Clip your hair up with a grip and secure the first row in place. Release your hair, then about an inch higher, twist and secure your natural hair again with a grip and secure the second row. Clipping your natural hair back might take time but it makes it easier to fit the Clip N’Go Hair Extensions as it means there are fewer lose strands to get tied in. Fitting the extensions in rows also makes it simpler to ensure the finish is smooth with no lumps or bumps, creating a more natural finish.

Continue until you reach the crown. The longer strips will cover the whole crown so as you reach there you may find the clips need to be secured slightly to the side of the head. Just ensure your own hair is clipped and moved to the side so it is easier to fit the extensions.

Once the larger rows are fitted secure the four smaller clips to add volume and to frame the face.

At the root of each of Dream Girl’s Clip’N Go Hair Extensions is a flexible grip. They are styled to ensure the clip is not on show but just double check that hair is smooth.

Step 3

Time to style. Dream Girl’s Clip’N Go Hair Extensions can be crimped, curled and styled as natural hair.(*)

For a look that’s bang on trend, curl hair in one to two inch squares to create big bouncy waves. Ensure ends are curled to frame the face and clip fringe loosely back to create a soft, romantic look.

And there you have it. Three steps to a show-stopping style that’s guaranteed to make him swoon.
