HAIR HOW-TO: Rihanna's long extensions with Jamie Stevens & Beauty Works

With spring in sight, I've got our eye on tumbling tresses inspired by Rihanna.

Given that my shoulder-length locks won't be flowing around our midriff anytime soon, I've turned to celebrity hairdresser Jamie Stevens for help.

After teaming up with Beauty Works, Jamie (who also happens to be the resident hair pro for X Factor and This Morning), has introduced me to the weft extensions.

He says, "The Weft extensions from Beauty Works give a generous amount of hair per weft, which allow professionals to apply the hair in an efficient way, cutting down the salon time and still achieving amazing results. Wefts can also be re-used if cared for correctly, they are simply re applied every 8-10 weeks."

Right, so how do I look like Rihanna?

"Rihanna's has really embraced the Hair Extension trend, going from short to long overnight. The colours on this picture are natural, making it an updated look of the dip dye trend we saw so heavily embraced last season," Jamie says.

Adding, "Beauty Works have a brand new 'Celebrity Choice' weft extension, 'bronde' - a very subtle brown to blonde shade - which creates a natural look. It's perfect for the SS13 season and is a less drastic version of ombre hair.

"It's about creating a look that looks 'un-done'. To create the big body curls you can see here on the picture use straightening irons or curling system and ensure that you curl every piece of hair in the same direction.

"Brush out the tightness of the newly curled hair and sweep over to one side."
