Its summer and we’re dealing with a heat wave right now. We all know that heat and humidity are NOT good for one’s hair but here at Sleek we say fight the elements and go out looking beautiful and stylish on your date night without a hair out of place. Here are some great styles that will fight against the weather and leave you looking fabulous!



Messy beach hair in this season is a joy, and is also very little work! Everyone loves a messy top knot and you can use this look for a casual and sexy date night approach. Pull your hair into a high ponytail that sits right on top of your crown, and then pin the loosely wrapped hair around the base of your ponytail, make sure you leave some whispy strands free. You can get this look SO easily by using one of our clip in ponytails. We recommend Bootylicious for that extra oomph.



Braids are so hot this summer and such an easy look to recreate yourself using our Hair Couture Braided Headband. Simply pull your hair up into a low messy bun and accessorize with the braided headband. You can use more than one and layer them over each other for a more intricate and ethereal look. Pair with a maxi summer dress and you are ready for a night out.



We all know you’ve been rocking the matte and messy beach wave look this summer, we all have because it’s such an effortless and sexy style! To transform that from day time at the beach to night time on a date brush all the hair over to one shoulder. Accessorize this up with a funky hair clip and you’re good to go! To get the perfect waves we suggest you go for the best quality weave that will stand up to the extremes of the season. Our new Virgin Gold Brazilian hair is just the thing. It’s the best quality Brazilian hair at a surprisingly affordable price; you don’t have to break the bank to get the best.

We’re not entirely sure what Ashanti has been doing music wise for the past few years, but we do know that she keeps popping up on the Red Carpet flaunting some serious style and some amazing hair. Whether she’s wearing it up and sophisticated or down and full of curls she always looks fabulous. So let’s take a look back on some of Ashanti’s best looks and how you can get the look yourself!


Ashanti likes her curls, and when she has them she likes them big and bold and with lots of length. We like a lady who’s not afraid to be dramatic with her hair here at Sleek! We also know that this look takes time and none of us ever have any time spare at the moment. So why not try out our Fashion Idol 101 Honey Weave for quick, simple, dramatic curls. All the Fashion Idol 101 Tongable Synthetic Weave is made of premium synthetic hair that can withstand heat styling of up to 200’c. Our range here has been made with women who like styles that are low maintenance ultra affordable and like the appearance of natural, un-relaxed hair; much like what Ashanti likes to sport in the picture above.


She also likes to go sleek and glamorous and straighten her hair out. We love how perfect and frizz free it is, there truly isn’t a hair out of place on this lady. We also like how she enjoys styling her hair up, using things like braids to make a straight style way more fun. If you fancy going super straight and super smooth try out our Spotlight wigs, we would suggest either the Human Hair wig in Diva or if you fancy a lot more length and drama go for the Spotlight Synthetic Wig Venice. Both styles offer you straight hair that won’t lose its shine or frizz up. The lace front wigs can also be adjusted for the perfect fit and also feature combs on each side for extra security. If you want to mix it up with some hair braid headbands Hair Couture do a fantastic one in a range of colours!


Ashanti also likes to play with her hair in up-dos. She mixes up long ponytails with quiffs and really classic buns placed right at the top of her head.  Ponytails, up dos and buns are really on trend at the moment and you can get a great range of clip in and Velcro ponytails over at Hair Couture. We’d suggest the Swirl Bunny from hair couture to add oomph to your bun. For a long, straight ponytail the Velvet synthetic Velcro ponytail is the key to a fantastic look or for more curl and bounce in a ponytail go for out EZ Ponytail Bootylicious. Wear them high and slung over one shoulder for a really classy, quick hair style or low at the nape for the neck for something a bit more high fashion. Either way you’ll look and feel as much of a star as Ashanti.

Years after she burst onto our screens in American Idol, Jennifer Hudson’s career seems to have gone from strength to strength. From her Oscar winning performance in Dream Girls alongside superstar Beyoncé to her chart hits Spotlight and Pocketbook JHud has cemented her place in the celeb circuit.

After her well publicised weight loss, Jennifer seemed ready to show the world just how good she could look, here we round up some of our faves!
