In-line with the red carpet season, Valerie Patterson, winner of the Great Lengths Trophy – Extension Excellence Award 2017, Valerie Patterson worked her magic to transform January into a Hollywood siren with the help of Great Lengths pre-bonded hair extensions to add volume to the model’s fiery red locks.
