This Balmain Hair collection is unique in that it offers you a way to change your hairstyle without spending any time at the hairdressers. There are five trendy styles available that allow you to create a different hairstyle quickly and with ease. All of the attachments are made out of artificial human hair.
No matter what kind of style you are in the mood for, long and curly, a braided knot, or something unique and different for a special night out, all of this can be accomplished using the Balmain hair collection. The best part is the styles match your own hair perfectly so the looks are natural.
There are several reasons this collection is so special. The first reason is that the attachments contain a Memory®Hair complex that allows the hair to be curled or straightened with an iron without damaging it. Once you wash the hair, it goes back to the original shape.
Second, the hair attaches with gentle lock clips that are invisible and ensure the hair locks into place. The color of the hair is mixed with tones, so it is sure to match your own hair color. It is lightweight and comfortable, and you can attach it all by yourself.

Curly Hairpiece

With Balmain's Elegance collection of hair extensions and add-ins, creating an elegant and fascinating upstyle or simply a stunning look is easier than ever. Here we see the Nice and Paris style add-in hairpiece. The piece uses artificial hair combined with metallic threads to allow the hair to be used to create curly or straight styles.
Here we see the hairpiece in the "Nice" look, forming a mass of golden curls that crown the head and add volume and interest to the look. By drawing the natural hair up at the nape and sides, and allowing the hairpiece to fall over the sides slightly, you create the illusion of a hairstyle that took hours to accomplish, when the Elegance hairpieces allow such development in a fraction of the time by simply clipping into place.

Clip-In Hairpiece

Worn straight for the "Paris" effect, Balmain's Elegance hairpiece "Nice and Paris" allows the hairpiece to be shaped into smooth fashionable ponytails or falls.
Here we see how the hairpiece can be incorporated into a style on top of the head, adding a dramatic level of height to the hairstyle and allowing the hair to be sculpted into a fountain of curved locks that are captivating and elegant.
Again, thanks to the Balmain Elegance hairpiece and its gentle clip-in attachability, an upstyle that should take hours is accomplished quickly and with relative ease.

Braided Knot

If you've ever wanted to have one of those intricately knotted upstyles, but never thought it possible for you, whether because you didn't have enough hair or didn't have the skill to create one, take a look at the St. Tropez hairpiece in the Balmain Elegance collection.
This braided knot of hair comes ready-made and ready to attach so that you, too, can have an ornate looking hairstyle without needing to be an expert hairstylist or pay a fortune to someone who is.

Braided Hairstyle

Once again, the St. Tropez hairpiece from the Balmain Elegance collection offers a classic looking braid style. The braided knot pairs with the longer braided rope and gives a classy, old-world look with modern elegance and clean, ornate lines.
Thanks to the wide array of color choices, virtually any hair can be matched and look natural. Here we see the hairstyle incorporating the rope braid as a coronet across the top of the head, while the braided knot anchors the balance of the hair.

Upstyle with Hairpieces

Romantic upstyle created with curled hairpieces
In this photo we have the loose curls of the Bordeaux (short length) and Cannes (long length) of the Balmian Elegance hairpiece collection. The model is sporting a combination of the two hairpieces to create this balanced, but stylish and romantic, asymmetrical upstyle.
By offering a variety of sizes of curled hairpieces, Balmain gives you to the tools to mix and match, creating natural-looking hairstyles without needing to spend an afternoon in the stylist's chair.

Upstyle with Soft Curls

The model is also sporting the Balmain Elegance hairpieces from the Bordeaux and Cannes style with large soft curls.
Here the natural hair is smoothed back in a simple, smooth finish with loose fringe, and the hairpieces are used to create a short fall of curls for a playful look, that is suitable for an evening out or a more casual party with friends.
As always with the Balmain Elegance pieces, you can get a fashionable look without spending all day creating it.

Loose Up-Style

This loose, asymmetrical up-style is created using the Balmain Elegance hair extensions in the Bordeaux and Cannes styles. The large soft curls are attached to the side of the head, where the natural hair has been loosely gathered after allowing it to drape and curve along the sides of the face.
The hairstyle is casual and elegant, suitable for business or a luncheon with friends. And of course, the best part is that Balmain's Elegance hairpieces clip right in to give you the added styling you'd normally spend hours on.
