Lauren Conrad Plaited Hair: Cheat way!

lauren conradOkay, I'll be honest: I'm obsessed with The Hills! Don't judge me you guys! ;). I mean for the most part of course it can be ridiculous, but part of me loves the fashion aspect of it, and I loved it when Lauren and Whitney were in it. It was great watching their progression in the fashion industry.

Anyway, I digress, because the whole point of this post was to introduce to you a company I found at Selfridges in London that makes it super easy to get a Lauren Conrad esque plaited hair look with absolutely no effort required. I know she often wears her plait on the side (like the photo on the left), and it is actually quite an easy hairstyle to achieve, but one episode I saw her where it was like an actual hairband. Now if you're going to style your hair like that, it can take a lot of patience and time, especially if hair styling isn't really your thing.

It's no secret that for a while now some ingenious bod created plaited hairbands. So great, problem solved I thought, I'll go buy one...and there the mission started! It's taken me well over a year (I wish I was exaggerating!) to find one to match my hair colour. Everywhere I went all they had was various shades of blond, brown and black. But what about us redheads?! I gave up and became disheartened and singled out by the beauty industry, but last week, when I wasn't even looking for it, I found one to match my hair! Here's some photos of it in my hair:

So I got this in Selfridges, but I can't seem to find a website for the company. If you're going to London though, all I can tell you is that they're at the back, near the high street shops, and they also sell wigs, Jessica Simpson extensions, and those curling irons that people try and flog in everywhere shopping precinct! The only further information I have is that it says 'Hot Locks' on the label, and I THINK this may be the website.

So have you tried hair extensions/hair pieces etc? Have you had problems finding one to match your hair colour? Let me know all below :).
