Balmain: Elegance – A different look every day


Feel like a completely new hair style, but not the idea of an hour at the hairdresser’s? As of today, this is entirely possible! Balmain Hair is launching the Elegance collection: five trendy hair-ups made of artificial human hair, enabling you to create a new hairdo in no time at all.One day you feel like having long curls, the next you’re more in the mood for a chic look with a stylish, braided knot, and then there are the days you want to match your hairstyle to your outfit. Or you want to do something spectacular with your hair for that one special evening out.
All this is easy to accomplish with the stylish Elegance collection by Balmain Hair. You can use it to create a temporary glamorous hairstyle in an instant. And it looks completely natural, as if it’s all your own hair.

The Elegance collection consists of five trendy looks:

Saint-Tropez braided knot
The most classic style and the hot trend of the moment: a braided knot. Cannot be distinguished from the real thing! For price information please contact with PR

Nice twist wavy and Paris twist straight
A straight hairpiece with a metal thread worked into it, allowing it to be easily bent into various shapes – a trendy ponytail or a knot, for example. Nice and Paris can be placed into the hair for more volume. Nice is curly, Paris is straight hair. For price information please contact with PR

Bordeaux curl clip short and Cannes curl clip long
Slightly curled hair-ups in two lengths: short curl and long curl. The styles are eminently suitable for combining (one short and one long curl together, for example), but can also be mixed with Nice or Paris.
For price information please contact with PR

Extra: Finishing Accents
Finishing Accents are hair pins on which one lock of hair is attached. They are easily and quickly placed to one’s own hair. The hairpin can be simply slid into the hair for a playful finishing touch. Ideal for giving blond hair a few lowlights or brown hair a few highlights.
For price information please contact with PR

What makes the Balmain Elegance Collection so special?– Memory®Hair: all hair-ups are made of artificial human hair, containing the ‘Memory®Hair complex’ patented by Balmain. Without damaging the hair, you can straighten or curl it with a styling iron. After it is washed, the piece always dries into its natural shape. Looks and feels natural, like real hair!

– Invisible attachment: thanks to special gentle-lock clips (integrated into the hair-up) the hairpiece can be attached invisibly and firmly.

– Natural colour match: thanks to the mix of various tone-on-tone colour mix the Elegance collection always matches the natural own hair colour. To wear the hair in a knot or ponytail, it only has to match the natural, own basic colour.

– Professional quality: each hair-up is handmade. That’s why the hair looks natural and can be easily modelled.

– No extra help needed: you can attach the pieces to your own hair easily.

– Lightweight material: makes it comfortable to wear.
