We have come accustomed to seeing the Kardashian clan changing up their looks.

Notably, Kim and Kylie love to experiment with hair colour and wigs.

But move over gals because Khloe is coming through with a new hair transformation and it's gorgeous.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

Taking to Instagram to flaunt her new locks, the 34-year-old showed off her pink hair.

The Kardashian kept her flawless blonde hair but jazzed it up with touches of baby pink highlights.

Khloe opted to keep her hair a longer length and we just think it's divine. 

We aren't alone in our thoughts as her fans couldn't get enough of it.

Her followers were quick to express just how much they adored her new hair.

"Love this look on you so much," one fan commented.

"Your hair is everything," said another. 

We have to agree, Khloe is just glowing these days and we love that she is taking more risks with her style.

Recently, she went for an iconic platinum blonde look.

Sister Kylie is also rocking this colour and it's just stunning.

However, we probably won't be hopping aboard this trend any time soon, as we don't have the hairdressers these gals do.

We all have had a bad experience with heating tools and haircare: whether it's burning your scalp or just creating supremely dodgy curls for a night out, it's happened to us all.

Some gals even resort to teaching their boyfriends how to use hair tools to stop themselves from constantly getting burnt, and other gals just give up altogether.

Taming the mane can be tedious, frustrating and just downright PAINFUL. This Christmas, we're hoping to get a gift from Santa which will ultimately stop the problem of tangled brushes and applying aloe vera to our burns.

We have scoured the lands trying to find a tool that allows us to move our heads and hands around without the heat danger, and creates the perfect looks for day and night.

HALLELUIJAH: a new and improved version of the Instyler has just been released, and it just might save your life.

You might remember the original Instyler; in case you've been living under a haircare rock, it's become a huge name by transforming hair into big bouncy waves and straight, sleek locks.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by InStyler Ireland (@instylerireland) on

The Instyler Max now comes in three glam colours: purple, black and pink, and we can't decide which one we want more.

Praise the Lord, no more burns. The Instyler Max has a rotating barrel addition which straightens, curls, and adds twice the amount of body to our hair. It works super fast so you won't be spending hours with aches in your neck staring at the mirror. 

Trying to get picture-perfect hair can be tricky at best, re-creating glamorous curls or straight sleek looks from our favourite catwalk shows seems unfairly difficult considering we don't have a personal hairstylist on hand.

We are hoping (nay, praying) that this tool will be the answer to our hair prayers. Think of it like a mini-hairstylist that you can carry around in your bag.

Treat yourself, we are definitely nabbing this in time for our Christmas party.

Grab your new guardian angel of hair at www.instyler.ie for just €99.99, not bad considering it essentially gives you red carpet glamour.

Protecting your hair from the harsh winter elements can be tricky at best, but we’ve got you covered. Think of us like cuddly pals who are strangely obsessed with keeping your hair flawless in winter. 

From static frizz to brittle split ends, there are all kinds of reasons why Christmas season wreaks havoc on hair. 

Hat-head aftermath and cashmere-caused static are two major culprits, but applying heat to your locks from blow-drying wet hair also leads to trouble in hair paradise.

"How do I go from Coldilocks to Snow Queen this Christmas?", we hear you ask. 

Introducing our cheat sheet for your winter hair:

1. DON’T leave your house with wet hair, this is a one way trip to Flu Land. Wet hair can also break easily if it’s frozen from the drop in temperature, just don’t do it gals.

2. Try to keep a balanced temperature in your home so you don’t have massive shocks when you leave the house or come in from work: this can irritate both your skin and scalp.

3. Turn the hot water in your shower down just a tad, your hair will thank you later.

In the winter, we all crave scalding hot showers to allow our bodies to regulate its temperature after spending all day in the cold, but hot water isn’t good for your hair, it actually dehydrates it.

By keeping it just above lukewarm, you’ll prevent having dry skin and scalp. Keep the moisture in your mane, huns.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Nourished Life (@nourishedlife) on

To prevent those precious oils from escaping, we recommend Argan oil products. Acure Organics Moroccan Argan Oil has ingredients like buckthorn oil and pumpkin seed oil, which are both rich in fatty acids for retaining moisture.

4. Coconut oil is also renowned for treating dry and brittle hair in winter. Use 100% organic coconut oil from your local health foods shop and spot the difference in time for Santa to make it down the chimney.

5. John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7-Day Treatment targets deflated hair fibres—plumping them up for days, some say it even lasts a week. John Frieda, you Christmas angel.

6. Use heat protection before blow drying your hair, try Tresemmé Keratin Smooth 7 Day System Heat Activated Treatment. It’s heat-activated, which means the substance is offering a semi-permanent solution to that crown of stray hairs. MAGICAL.

7. OUR TOP TIP: We are absolutely WORSHIPPING Santa’s little hairdryer right now: LanaiBLO.

Keep your hair dry and bouncy with volume by using the Limited Edition Rose Gold LanaiBLO.

Let it snow then let it blow, we say. They promise to keep your hair shimmering and shiny with an ultra sleek finish, it’s also an ideal gift for your loved ones if you’re stuck for a present.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Lanai Official (@lanaiofficial) on

However, this hairdryer is so gorge that you’ll most likely want to keep it all to yourself… we know we do.

It’s lightweight, has an ultra long cord so you can dry your hair without having to linger near the plug socket and comes in three colours; pretty-in-pink, snow white and midnight black.

It’s technology works to seal in moisture and counteract frizz, leaving those locks more stylish than ever for all those Christmas parties and celebrations.

Those of us who still have a 90's heavyweight hairdryer will know the struggle of trying to dry your hair with the equivalent of a minor breeze. *sigh*

Holly Willoughby, Dani Dyer, Made in Chelsea’s Binky and Rosie, Frankie Gaff, Una Healy, models Rosanna Davidson and Lottie Moss are among LanaiBlo's famous clients, and for a good reason.

So, you may have noticed that the ladies here at SHEmazing HQ have a sliiight obsession with all things Harry Potter.

From Potter-themed hotels to Sorting Hat candles, we're running out of ways to prove our love for the magical series – well, almost. 

Introducing Harry Potter hair! 

Inspired by the colours of the house of Gryffindor, the magical look is was first created by hairstylist Crystal Casey created using a balayage technique with hues of orange, yellow, red and purple. 

Speaking to Allure about how she created the spellbinding hairstyle, she explained: "The colour itself was inspired by Gryffindor from the Harry Potter movies, with my own twist, of course."

And the best part is that the HP hairdo suits all skin tones, as Crystal explains: "Since a lot of the natural brown base is left untouched, just about any skin tone can wear it."

And for those of you who were sorted into a different house (hey, hey fellow Slytherins), a whole host of Howarts-themed hair colours have been popping up online recently. 

Just check out these whimsical styles created by Krystina Sporck. 

Sorry, but being in Ravenclaw has never looked more appealing.

HOWEVER, while these mad trends were very cool and Insta-worthy, we wouldn’t be brave enough to try them.  Gigi Hadid is the doyenne of all things hair so it’s not surprising that she has tried balayage and looked amazing.

Ash balayage is doing the rounds on Instagram at the moment, and starts as any normal balayage hair colour would—with dark-toned roots.  Now don’t be confused, it’s a completely different colour to the original blond balayage which celebs like Blake Lively embraced particularly during her pregnancy.

The hair colour shifts towards a lighter, ashy blonde colour, until gradually fading out into a greyish/silver shade.

Whilst this DEFINITELY one our favourite hair trend of 2018 so far we still can’t help but love the original brown balayage trend.

It is ash-aloutley fabulous.

Nutella is amazing on many things. Toast, crepes, cakes, a spoon, and now, our hair. 

One salon, based in the Lebanon, has gained international attention for using Nutella as a hair treatment in it's cut and colours.

The salon, called Abed & Samer, has posted viral videos of the yummy hazelnut treat being incorporated into their professional hair styling. 

With it's high fat and protein content, hypothetically the sweet, chocolatey goodness could be good for your hair, but there is no scientific evidence to back this up.

The salon also employs the use of whipped cream, caramel, chocolate sauce and condensed milk to tone, dye and treat the hair. 

While the treatment sounds a little sticky, we'd opt for Nutella-scented tresses in a heart beat.

Until the method makes it's way to Irish shores, we'll be treating ourselves to some Nutella on toast.

Kate Middleton completely stole the show at Wimbledon this week when she debuted a brand new do. 

Gone are the lengthy brunette tresses, and in their place is a stylish, lighter summer hair style. 

 

A post shared by Ascari Salons (@ascari.salons) on

The stunning Duchess is giving us all kinds of hair inspiration to see out the summer, and her shorter but not quite lob-length hair is low-maintenance perfection. 

While it's definitely not a dramatic change, the slightly lighter look adds a summery edge to her tresses.

The shorter, but still versatile, length makes this look perfect for those who like the option of still having enough length to play around with different styles, without the mega-maintenance of Rapunzel locks. 

 

A post shared by Move Notícias (@movenoticias) on

If you're heading to the hairdressers, picture of Kate in hand, make sure you ask for a long bob with an inch or two of extra length, cut with minimal layering for a full-bodied result. 

As for brunettes looking to add a sun-kissed touch to their hair, request some very subtle, sparse highlights, with most centred around the front of the face. 

If you want to channel Kate's hair style at home, grab the straighteners or curling iron and create around four big, loose curls in the hair, directing the curl spiral away from the face. 

Make sure you use a heat protection spray ahead of hear styling, and then separate the loose curls even more with your fingers. 

Finish with a spritz of hair spray for the ideal curly blow dry look, just like Kate's.

The world is obsessed with fidget spinners at the moment, and there isn't a kid in the country who doesn't have one of these nifty little toys stashed in their pencil case at this very moment. 

The toys have been adopted by the online beauty community, with MUA James Charles using the spinning gadgets to create a killer contour. 

Now, YouTuber Bunny Meyer, or Grav3yardGirl as she is known to fans, has incorporated them into her hair care routine. 

 

A post shared by grav3yardgirl (@grav3yardgirl) on

Out of curiosity, the YouTuber decided to test the toys to see if they could be used like hair rollers to create luscious wavy locks.

She ordered a bumper-pack of 100 of them, but only ended up needing 18 to complete the hair care trial. 

Starting off with wet hair, Bunny wrapped small sections of hair around each curve of the spinners.

Using bobby pins to hold the whole thing together, she blasted the look with a hair dryer to set it. 

 

A post shared by grav3yardgirl (@grav3yardgirl) on

The result?  

Well, it actually kind of worked if you're into Kesha-eaque wavy locks. 

However, Bunny did comment that the toys were a literal pain in the neck thanks to their weight.

Getting ready for a big night out can often be the best part of the entire night.

Getting the girls around for 'a few' pre-drinks while everyone primps and preens themselves over a glass of gin & tonic is where the goss is divulged, and sometimes leaving the house for the club gets pushed back later and later thanks to the catch ups 

I'm usually a no fuss, no frills kind of girl, and if my hair gets brushed before hitting the bar, I consider myself made up. 

 

A post shared by D R Y & F L Y (@dryandflydublin) on

Dry & Fly Blow Dry Beauty Bar, nestled on the second floor above L'Occitane on Wicklow Street, is designed with the sole purpose of bringing women together for some quality time, all while getting pampered ahead of a night out. 

I went along to see exactly what pre drinks pampering was all about, and to get a sneak peek of what is destined to be one of Dublin's buzziest salons. 

The city centre space is, for want of a better term, Instagram-worthy, with a modern but feminine aesthetic, assisted by the paint washed exposed brick, pink neon signs and copper accents.

Steven, the giant dog statue, who looks like a piece of art, is actually a speaker imported from France for the sole purpose of bringing the ultimate ladies night playlist to Dry & Fly's clients, adds to the ambience. 

The blow drying stations are positioned specifically so that groups of gal pals can get their hair and nails done as a group ahead of an event, and the salon offers each client a glass of Glendalough gin and tonic garnished with blood orange and rosemary (delish) or a glass of Prosecco to get the party started. 

The beauty bar even boasts a DJ booth, where local DJs spin tracks on Friday and Saturday nights while clients enjoy their luxurious blowdries.

Andrew O'Neill, one of the founders and visionaries behind the salon, sought to create a cool, collective experience for women to go straight from the salon to their destination, freshly made up and ready to take the town. 

Big, bouncy blow outs are the aim of the creative stylists at Dry & Fly, and and their look book features all the classics, from the sleek and straight glossy blow out to Hollywood waves. 

For those feeling a little more experimental, the salon stylists are also well versed in festival braids, dramatic pony tails and up-dos. 

 

A post shared by SHEmazing! (@shemazingie) on

The salon deal exclusively with Kevin Murphy hair products, a staple in the beauty arsenals of both beauty bloggers and professional hair stylists across the country. 

Gin in hand and after a quick flick through the salon's look book, I settled on the Ty Twist blow dry, a beachy, bouncy look that gave life to my long and admittedly lifeless locks.  

I opted for the full experience, getting my hair washed in one of the salon's comfy basins, with a full view of the painted letters on the ceiling, which read 'relax, you're not cheating on your hairdresser.' 

You can also come in with your hair washed and just go straight for a dry blow out. 

I sat down in one of the socially set-out chairs to have my hair and nails done simultaneously, feeling like I was one pink silk robe away from a backstage Victoria's Secret moment. 

The salon seats, laid out so that friends can face each other and chat, were ideal for receiving both treatments at once.

Having two stylists working on my hair and nails seemed like the ultimate pinnacle of having notions, but hey, who doesn't want to feel like they're working with a Kardahian-esque glam squad at least once in their lives? 

The salon is open until 10pm on Friday and Saturday for those pre-night out blow dry sessions, and from 7am to 7pm through the rest of the week.
