zala hair 2 easy haistyles when you're travelling during the holidays

2 Easy Hairstyles When You’re Travelling During The Holidays

For many people, the holidays are the perfect time for some much needed R&R. Many people take the opportunity to unwind, relax, and even travel during this season.

zala hair 2 easy haistyles when you're travelling during the holidays

When travelling during the holidays, it can be quite a hassle to always have to get your hair out of your face. Especially if you’re moving around constantly, you’d want to keep your hair on your head, away from all the oil and sebum on your skin that can lead to dirty hair.

Take a look at these two easy hairstyles when you’re travelling during the holidays! And if you have short hair, don’t fret, you can choose any of these styles from our collection, like the 20″ Platinum Blonde and the 16″ Caramel!

zala hair bun

Hairstyle #1 – The Bun

The bun is a timeless classic, for good reason. Not only does it keep the hair out of your face, it also makes you look stylish and classy at the same time!

  1. Start by brushing all your hair back, from the front to the back of your head. Gather all the strands in one hand.
  2. For a messy bun look, pull some random strands away from your hair. For a fringe bun, take your fringes out of the gathered bunch. If you want a classier look, pull your hair towards the top of your head. For a more serious look, pull your hair towards the lower part of your head.
  3. Tie your hair with an elastic. Then, wrap your hair around the elastic until it’s fully covered. Use bobby pins to secure the bun.
  4. Add some finishing touches and you’re done!

Hairstyle #2 – The High Ponytail

If the bun is timeless, then the ponytail is immortal. After all, it’s quick, easy, and effortless. What more can you ask for?

  1. This works the same way as the bun, except for the ‘wrapping around the elastic’ part. After you brush all your hair back, pull it towards the top of your head and wrap with an elastic.
  2. If you really want to keep your hair out of your face, you can also braid the ponytail into one big braid. This is especially helpful if you’re backpacking and walking around a lot.
  3. To do the braid, just section your ponytail into three smaller parts. Cross one over the other, alternating as you go along. Secure the end with an elastic.
  4. Add some finishing touches and you’re ready to go on your adventure!

Bonus: Here’s a guide on how to put in your own Zala clip in ponytail hair extensions!

See, styling your hair when you’re travelling during the holidays doesn’t have to be a hassle! Let us know what’s your favorite holiday travel hairstyle in the comments below!

Killer Halloween Looks

Killer Halloween Looks

Killer Halloween Looks

The spookiest time of the year has come around again and you must be on the hunt for some killer Halloween looks.

Whether you’ve got a crazy halloween party to go to or you would just like to dress up to get spooky, if you are looking for Halloween hair-spiration, you have come to the right place!

We have put together three drop dead gorgeous looks which will be perfect for Halloween.

We have a code for you! Use the code CREEP for $10 off!

It’s time to get freaky! 

The Purge

Killer Halloween Looks

I absolutely love scary movies. Theres something so thrilling about being scared and feeling the adrenaline rush through your veins.

Did The Purge Movie freak you out or leave you wanting more? I wonder what I’d do if the Purge really happened. Would I secure my house and hide inside all day or would I run around killing people?

We put together this super simple yet creepy look inspired by the purge. All we needed was our ZALA ponytails, a white shirt and a mask!

You will need:

  1. Starting with a neat centre parting, tie your hair up into 2 sleep pig tails.

  2.  Apply 2 x 16 inch ponytails extensions to either side, securing with bobby pins.

Fortune Teller

Killer Halloween Looks

If you could look into a crystal ball and see the future, what would you want to see?

There is something so magical and mystical about this fortune teller look. I don’t know whether I would like to be able to tell the future or not!

We paired big voluptuous messy curls with a jingly head piece, some sparkles and some dark and mysterious makeup. This look has everything.

You will need:

  1. Section off your hair and apply 20 inch hair extensions for length and volume.

  2. Working in sections, curl your hair with the extensions using a medium sized barrel.

  3. Brush out the curls and use a volumizing powder for extra volume and texture.

Evil Mermaid

Killer Halloween Looks

Ever since watching the Little Mermaid at 4 years of age, I still sit by the water and pretend i have a tail instead of legs… no, really. Imagine spending your days swimming around with your mermaid friends! I’m definitely not the only girl who has had a fantasy about living under the sea with my best friend who’s a lobster.

Unfortunately, not all of the creatures below sea level are as friendly as Sebastian. Meet the Evil Mermaid…

This Evil Mermaid look was put together by curling some insanely long hair extensions. We added some colourful fishy makeup and threw on a long, flowy, colourful dress to mimic a tail.

You will need:

  1. Section off your hair and apply 26 inch hair extensions for dramatic length.

  2. Twist and curl your hair and the extensions around the wand to create beachy waves

  3. Apply a generous amount of ZALA Revive Me throughout to achieve wet looking hair.

Watch our YouTube video for a tutorial on how to achieve these looks!

Saturday Night Hairstyles

If you’re stepping into the weekend with great plans, you need great hair to match! From drinks with the girls, to dancing at the clubs, to relaxed dinners, we have the perfect Saturday night hairstyles ready for you!

Saturday Night Hairstyles

Saturday Night Hairstyles

Drinks with Friends

So you’re a little tired after a big week of work or study but still ready to share a couple of cocktails and laughs with the girls. It will probably be an early night so you want to get your hair done quick so you can spend more time enjoying yourself with your favourite friends. For nights like these, we love this half up fishtail braid!

To achieve this look follow the steps below:

  1. Take two even sections from the front of your hair to twist back and tie together.
  2. Thread this section over and through to create a twisted effect. Add hair from underneath and split into two sections to start your fishtail braid.
  3. Take small pieces from either side and wrap over to the middle.
  4. Repeat this process a third of the way down the hair and secure with an elastic.
  5. Gently pull sections of the braid to loosen and add volume.
  6. Repeat this process another third of the way down the hair.
  7. Optional: Finish the look by adding metal hair rings to conceal the elastics.

This look features our 24 inch Quadlux Clip In Hair Extensions in Dark Chocolate Brown #2.

Hitting the Club

If you have a dance fueled Saturday night planned, you need a fun hairstyle to match! We love this braided ponytail look for nights out dancing as it is super cute and will stay in place all night. This is definitely one of our favourite Saturday night hairstyles.

To achieve this look follow the steps below:

  1. Brush through your hair to ensure it’s tangle free and then create a clean centre parting.
  2. Section 2 inches on one side of your part and then take another small section from the front. Split this into three parts.
  3. Next, it’s time to start braiding. For this look, you’re going to want to do a french braid. The key to this technique is to pick up more hair from each side as you cross the outer sections over and into the middle.
  4. Repeat this all the way back until you reach the crown of your head, then continue on with a regular braid and secure in place with an elastic.
  5. Then, repeat steps 3 and 4, three more times, until you have 2 braids either side of your part.
  6. Gather all your hair into a ponytail and secure in place with an elastic (this can be a low, high or medium ponytail).
  7. Now for our favourite part – applying your ponytail extensions! This completely transforms your hair and brings the whole look together. Simply slide the clip into the base of your ponytail, wrap the small section around and pin in place.
  8. Finish the look with some boho curls and your hair is complete for a night on the town!

This look features our Ice Queen Platinum Blonde #60 – 22 inch Human Hair Ponytail.

Relaxing Dinner

Maybe you’re ready to relax this weekend and would rather keep in simple with a nice Saturday night dinner. For nights like these, we love this romantic half up twist look that is simple and easy to achieve.

  1. Apply your ZALA hair extensions for instant length, volume and thickness.
  2. Once the extensions have been applied use a medium sized curling want to add loose curls.
  3. At the crown area, take a medium sized section of hair from one side, twist back and pin into place. Repeat this on the other side, twisting back and pinning into place over the first piece.
  4. Repeat this process by taking more pieces from either side, twisting and altering on top. Continue until you’re happy with the results.

This look features our 20″ Honey Beach Highlights #18/613 9 piece set.
