Fake VS The Natural Look

November 05, 2019 3 min read

You’ve heard of the expression ‘less is more’ and no phrase is more true when it comes to celebrity hair. 

Architectural up-dos, bold colours and dramatic displays of backcombing all command attention - but not always for the right reasons.  Proving that the natural look is just as noteworthy (if not better), discover some of our favourite celebrity hair makeunders from the likes of Demi Lovato to Christina Aguilera. 

Pamela Anderson


Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson has undoubtedly experienced a hair transformation in recent years. Gone is the OTT backcombing and here to stay are face-framing highlights. Natural and elegant, Pam’s softer appearance exudes class.

Songstress Miley Cyrus has experimented with her fair share of eye-popping hair looks over the years, from space buns and pink wigs, to jewel-encrusted ponytails. These days, we’re happy she’s sporting a more stripped-back look; long, laid-back waves and natural honey-blonde highlights. Achieve Miley’s make under hair yourself with our Luxury Four Piece Clip In Human Hair Set, which is available in 30 beautiful shades.

Kesha has toned-down her glitter-dipped, backcombed hair look for a fresh, minimalistic approach of late. Her new polished hairstyle combines a fashionable icy blonde hue with silky long braids (and not a hint of glitter).

Known for her signature platinum locks, Christina Aguilera may have maintained a blonde hair colour for her makeunder, but has ditched the super thick ponytails and brassy tones in the process. Paired with understated makeup and a sleek black outfit, Aguilera shows us her classy side in this natural before and after.

Lady Gaga

Blurring the boundaries of fashion and art, Lady Gaga has moved away from shock-value and embraced her natural beauty. Our verdict? Blown out blonde waves win over Gaga’s OTT hair creations every time. 

Nicki Minaj

Bright pink wigs may be a mainstay in Nicki Minaj’s on-stage wardrobe, but we can’t get enough of her natural locks. Oozing confidence and class, Nicki’s tumbling brown hair is something to be admired. Caramel highlights add warmth and depth to her dark brown wefts, creating a natural, effortless finish. Want to create the look at home? Clip in our Luxury Clip In Human Hair extensions and barrel curl into loose, sophisticated waves.

Gwen Stefani

90s hair icon and talented singer, Gwen Stefani, may have paved the way for experimental hair colours, but we prefer her sleek, blonde make under. Although naturally a brunette, Gwen looks like a true blonde thanks to her ultra-sleek style and perfect colour job.

Paris Hilton

Grown-up yet glamorous, party girl heiress Paris Hilton has ditched the Barbie-inspired blonde ponytail for a classy updo. This toned-down look still attracts attention, but for all the right reasons. We love her delicate, multi tonal highlights and can even help you recreate Paris’ elegant updo with our luxuriouswrap-in scrunchies.

Demi Lovato

From candy pink to true blue, Demi Lovato loves a playful hair colour. There’s nothing more gorgeous, however, than her natural brunette shade, which she’s had chopped into a stylish bob. If you’re in need of more fullness, consider clipping in a pair of natural  extensions and having them professionally trimmed to match your own length. 

If you want to complement your natural look with hair extensions, our luxury collection can give you the confidence of a great hair day. To help create a seamlessly blended look, our extensions feature carefully-considered multi-tonal hair strands for a beautiful, realistic finish.  While trends may come and go, we always strive to enhance your natural beauty and offer a maximum extension length of 20” - so you can enjoy longer, fuller hair that looks like you grew it yourself!
