When Coronation Street star Faye Brookes was looking for new hair extensions that would last, she approached Remi Cachet and headed to fellow Manchester-based Super Stylist, Raminta Doskute, for her enviable signature brunette mane. Find out how to get her look here.
We all know that, for continuity on screen, our major soap stars can't always have that dramatic change to their look, and as an extension-lover, Faye was after adding a little volume and slightly longer length to her own hair.
Wanting to create a natural look, to blend in well with Faye's own thick hair, Raminta recommended our Mini Tips® of Russian Mongolian hair in colour 2 as a perfect match at her consultation.
Faye likes to wear her hair up a lot for exercising and also for her character on set to show off different styles, so it was important to work with extensions and application that would be discreet. Mini Tips® are perfect here as they are less noticeable, and we can place them perfectly. - Raminta
Raminta applied around 125 strands, to Faye's hair using Mini Locks® to hold the hair extensions in place. The Darkest Brown shade blends perfectly with Faye's own hair. 20" lengths were applied and then cut down to 18", which was sufficiently long enough for Faye, with layers added around the sides and face to remove the weight and create a natural look. Faye wanted to keep them straight so she could enjoy her new hair.
Looking gorgeous, she headed out for a date night with her other half, Gareth Gates. Don't they make a cute couple? 👫
Armed with her aftercare set to care for her new hair extensions, Faye is set to return to Raminta in 9-12 weeks for her maintenance appointment and for the micro rings to be re-fitted.
