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!

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!

oprahpony

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!

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!

We’ve been hard at work on the photos for our new range of wigs and extensions coming out soon. Here are some behind the scenes pictures of our beautiful models! Thanks to everyone who was on the set working, we had a great time!
