Bay Area Salon Makes Red Carpet Looks Wearable for Real Life: Lessons from the 2016 Grammys

I love award shows. Wait, strike that. I love the Red Carpet that leads to the award shows (the shows themselves can be a little boring sometimes). I love the glamour, the jewels and the gowns. I love the fashion do’s and I love to cringe at the fashion don’ts. But most of all, I love to see the hair trends that show up on the carpet. From elegant up do’s to trendy beach waves, I am glued to my television watching these screen sirens glide from photo op to interviewer. I also love to transform these looks into real life for my clients. Here are some ways that you can wear Red Carpet looks for everyday:


1)    The Ariana Grande – This popular singer is known as much for her voice as for her signature slicked back ponytail. Not blessed with waist-length thick locks? Try using hair extensions because a skimpy pony just won’t achieve the same look. If you’re afraid of the cost and commitment of extensions that are semi-permanent, there are a variety of clip in versions that are more economical and temporary.

2)    Selena Gomez’s Lush Locks – And speaking of hair extensions…. Don’t we all selena%20gomezwish we had the abundance of gorgeous hair that Selena Gomez had at the Grammys? Well, she probably wasn’t born with it either. Today’s hair extensions blend in seamlessly with what God gave you and can be colored and cut to be virtually undetectable.

3)    Taylor Swift’s Blunt Bob – No one got more attention on the Red Carpet than Taylor Swift (you either loved or hated her dress). But her new blunt cut was really the star of the night. Gone were her signature waves and springy curls and in came a more mature, sleek version of the young starlet. Afraid of taking the plunge and cutting off inches of your hair? Try a wig! It’s a low maintenance option without the months and months of growing your hair back out if you change your mind.

It warms up those with cooler skin tones and is more sophisticated and enticing than the blonde ombre of months past.

Now here’s where Red Carpet meets real life: find a reputable stylist that can adjust these looks to suit you. From the right shade of auburn to knowing what length of bob would flatter your face best, a talented hair stylist can help you to be the best version of you. At Wig Works and Extensions for Hair Salon, we not only have some of the best stylists in the Bay Area, we also have the best selection of wigs and hair extensions in the East Bay.

About Janelle P.

I am proud to be one of the foremost hair loss specialists in the Bay Area with over thirty years experience in the field. At age 12 I began styling wigs for fashion and fun and assisted my mother after she established Wig Works in the early 1970’s. My passion for hair led me to Honolulu where I worked closely with legendary stylist Paul Mitchell. I had the honor to perform onstage platform hair styling with Mr. Mitchell, as well as legendaries Jean Braa, Zenon, and Alan Bush. I was also highly involved with the development and distribution of the Paul Mitchell line and later worked as a color representative for L’Oreal and stylist instructor for Matrix. I returned to the Bay Area and expanded Wig Works, with the establishment of Extensions for Hair. The revolutionary new hair extension method offered my clients with thin hair the opportunity to augment their style rather than relying on a wig or hair clip for length or fullness. These hair extensions are popular with women of all ages. Furthermore, I survived breast cancer twice and once lost all my hair from chemotherapy, so I have a unique perspective on special hair needs.
