Posh is over her short crop and ready to make the headlines
with a new ‘do’. Known for her ever changing locks Victoria
has done it again and pulled off a sleek, sassy, striking
look that perfectly complements her skinny frame and
signature silhouette dresses.
Stealing yet again from the Hepburn archives it’s a
great look that will make her feel in control whilst
she’s growing her hair. Which is what she’s up to at
the moment and to ease the growing pains from her cute
crop it’s a great idea to wear the hair up. Wearing
hair up like this isn’t for everyone as the look can
be severe, but with full make-up on, towering heels
and perfectly cut attire it screams glamour, success
and ‘I’m in control’.
The secret to the look and a secret in many fashion
savvy image conscious women’s hair wardrobe is the clip-in
hair weft or hair extension. Based on the traditional
top notch idea – clip-in hair to be used when you need
it, is all the rage. They are perfect for adding volume,
length or colour.
Victoria is definitely wearing clip-in extensions. They
are an easy way of adding glamour or going gorgeous
without busting the budget.

Top Notch will look.
3. With the hair
extensions in place scrape all of the hair into a very high
ponytail. If like Victoria, you are growing your hair you
may find it hard to scrape the hair up from your hairline,
don’t worry, apply more mousse into your hands and smear over
the hair in this area to help you to fix that hair. With the
pony tail in place, gently back comb the tail and start to
wrap the hair around the tail piece anti clockwise.
Continue wrapping the hair around until all the hair
is coiled and secure the ends of the hair and coil to the
base of the ponytail with Kirby grips.
5. Finally use
a hairspray to fix the whole style. To achieve the glossy
look that Victoria has, spray the hairspray approx 2 inches
away from the hair all over and leave the spray to dry this
will fix and hold the hair all night.

look that is perfect for the coming season of glamour, with
