Strictly style secrets

Whilst Rose Ayling-Ellis and dance partner Giovanni Pernice danced their way to taking home the Glitterball trophy; head judge on Strictly – Shirley Ballas was showing off a new longer hair style (with thanks to a little enhancement).

Great Lengths have always championed hair extensions as a way to bring out natural beauty – regardless of age. The outdated view that hair extensions are too long, too young and too fake could not be further from the truth!

Shirley Ballas is just one example of a celeb wearing hair extensions. Truth-be-told it’s actually pretty tricky to find a celebrity who hasn’t added a little length or thickness in the hair department. Whether you’re 16 or 60, more hair means more styling possbilities, increased manageability and a style that looks camera-ready. Hair extensions are a natural ‘tweak’ that can give your clients self-esteem a much-needed boost. By carefully placing a few Great Lengths hair extensions through the sides of the hair, you can add subtle volume in hair that is thinning; as well as disguising damaged and brittle hair.

Why Great Lengths?

Made from premium 100% human hair, Great Lengths hair extensions are the perfect solution for building confidence by achieving the hair of your dreams, whether it’s with length, volume or colour. Customised to your personality, and with the choice of two premium application methods – GL Tapes or GL Pre-Bonded extensions, and an extensive range of 90 colours including Natural, Rooted, Piano or the Fashion Colour range, there really is something for everyone!
