OK! Magazine has featured Follea wigs and topettes as great ways to boost your natural hair and get gorgeous celebrity hairstyles. Here are some of their tips:
Kerry Washington - Style: Sleek long layers with a blunt bang
To get Kerry Washington's smooth style, a Follea wig was used. It's an easy, no-fuss option that won't hurt your hair, but will completely change your look! What really makes this look is the blunt fringe. You want to make sure you are getting the bangs cut right below the brow line, since that is usually where they lay the most flattering. The nice thing about cutting the bangs on added hair is that they don't require much maintenance. Your bangs won't grow out every couple of weeks, and you don't have to style them constantly. Once the bangs are cut, drying them with a blow dryer will add a little bit of body without too much volume. Finish the look by adding a little shine spray. Create a dramatically different style using a Follea wig.
Kim Kardashian - Style: Long layered blowout with a soft bang
To achieve Kim's look, another Follea wig was used. The beauty of this is that you are easily able to go from a short dark style to a long-layered light-bang look. The bang is what differentiates this look. We keep seeing very blunt bangs on celebrities, but this is more of a softer, wispier look. This style is cut with a razor and blow-dried with a round brush. It is an easier look to maintain than the blunt bangs. The beauty of using a wig is you do not have to go through the growing-out period, and you can have bangs whenever you want to.
Anne Hathaway - Style: Tousled pixie hairstyle with a side bang
To achieve Anne Hathaway's sophisticated pixie, start by styling the hair straight and cutting it to the desired length. Ask for longer layers on top so that there is enough length to clip in the added hair. Then all you have to do is clip in a Follea Topette® Crown Extension right to the top of your head. Use a 1"-1.5" curling iron on the ends to give it a little wispiness. The Follea Topette® Crown Extensions will provide instant volume and fullness; which is what makes everyone want Anne Hathaway's new look. Make sure to finish the hairstyle with a little bit of hair spray and you're ready to go!
Lena Dunham - Style: Cascading waves with a sleek top
We've seen a lot of Lena Dunham's quirky style lately. Her hair has a slightly '60s retro curly feel but with the modern touch of front sleekness. To achieve this look with added hair we simply added some Follea extensions to the back and the sides to add some length. Once those are in, use a 1" curling iron to curl the ends. Make sure that you are just doing the ends and not taking the curling iron all the way to the top. Brush the hair down and use some smoothing spray to smooth down hair close to the roots. Pin back a little bit of the hair on both sides and complete the look with a finishing spray.
How to transform your hairstyle from day to night, using added hair
Added hair is not just about adding length and volume. It can be used to achieve an infinite number of hairstyles. When using added hair, stylists often use extensions, but that is just one out of many options. In addition to extensions, there are wigs, topettes, and fringes. With Follea, you can easily go from a short pixie to a long sleek night look in just a couple minutes; or go from a professional brunette during the day to a flirtatious blonde without any type of damage or permanence.
How to select the best added hair colour and type of hair that will look the most natural
The best way to select the colour for your added hair is by considering your skin tone. Warm skin tones tend to look best with cooler colours/tones, while cool skin tones tend to go best with warm colours. In addition, you want to make sure you are choosing a colour that makes your eye colour stand out. If you are not sure what's best for you, sometimes looking back at childhood pictures is the best way to go. Looking at what your natural colour was growing up is a big indicator of which tone goes the best with your skin.

When selecting your added hair, you always want to go with a texture that matches your own hair. There are many different types of hair available, but the most commonly known hair types are Chinese, Indian, and European. European hair is the finest type of hair, which means it has more movement than other hair types and is usually the best hair to use.
Added hair is not only for those suffering from hair loss. Wigs, topettes and extentions can all be used as an easy way to enhance your natural hair or create a dramatically different look. Best of all, in an instant you can have your old look back again!
