Back in June we shot for Hair Magazine’s September issue to show how timeless and elegant our Gold Class hair extensions really are. If you thought that our hair extensions were just for celebrities then think again. With ages ranging from 12 to 70 years old, we took six ladies to show you that age doesn’t matter when it comes to using our hair extensions for lengthening, boosting volume or adding some colour contrasts. It’s all about creating a natural look with Gold Class and enhancing your own unique features. We hope to give a little inspiration with these shots…enjoy!
Get Arlene’s Style … only a mere 25 strands have been added to Arlene’s hair. The one row of pre-bonded extensions custom blended our Colours 8 – Bronzed and 11 – Iced Mocha to add some depth to her colour and a little volume, but here the extensions help add more texture and hold the style created.
Styling with L’Oreal Tecnipli Rootspray before using GHD large barrel tongs the lengths, and not the ends, to create a natural boho look, enhanced with a little R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo to add texture.
Re-create Laura’s locks …. In an instant with the Gold Class luxury Clip In hairpiece for that special night out. Laura’s shade is London Gold and fits perfectly to her head shape, discreetly and securely; giving your tresses lengths upto 50cm and plenty of volume, being equivalent to a full head of permanent extensions. Being of the highest quality hair, these clip-ins are the ultimate instant transformation for your hair.
And styling couldn’t be easier for you too, as you can pre-curl the hair on the Hair Hanger using GHD medium tongs and finishing with just using a little Gold Class Argan Oil to hold fly away strands and add shine to the hair.
Once applied, the curls were gently brushed through to leave this full on glamour look perfect for a special night out.
Don’t worry, your Gold Class extensionist will help colour match the perfect one for you, fit the hairpiece and show you exactly how you can re-fit it yourself and care for the extensions so nobody will ever know they are not your own locks!
Copy Pirjo effortless look… Craving re-gaining the volume her hair once had, our Clip In was customised into two parts to add at the sides of the head to frame her face and hold the hair in place. Using Platinum Gold colour to blend with Pirjo’s hair colour and curling her hair back away from her face with GHD medium tongs.
This is a great alternative for those adverse to some permanent extensions and is low impact for those with thinner hair to ensure your hair and scalp health remains healthy.
Daisy … our vibrant Indian Cinnibar Clip-Ins is cut to the length of Daisy’s own hair and is used to add body and volume before styling with soft curls. This is a look which never dates and shows off the beautiful colour and gloss of Daisy’s own hair.
Get Karen’s Style … for the first time extensions wearer, Tape Hair is a perfect solution to try them. Here, around 20 strips of tapes were expertly applied to add approximately half a head of volume hair ensuring that when trimmed into a blunt one-length, her hair looked full of body.
Sandwiching Mello Mocha and Rich Truffle colours adds depth and warm to the style, finished by straightening the hair for an on-trend uber-sleek style.
And finally, Sady’s look … is the perfect bridesmaid look for any little girl. After plaiting her own hair into a ponytail; a Gold Class hair piece was clipped around and twisted into a messy bun and secured in place with a few pins. Opting for a few shades darker than your own hair, adds some contrast and can also help make your look more realistic.
Hope you like the extra exclusive behind the scenes pictures to share with you to get an idea about our shoot.

Our latest collection, The Midas Touch, harps back to the myth of King Midas and his golden touch. From the golden embellishments featured in each image to the dazzling talents of Inanch Emir, Anne Veck and Desmond Murray – a touch of gold has well and truly brought these 11 looks to life.
Gold Class founder, Inanch Emir joined forces with avant-garde expert Anne Veck and photography/hairdressing extraordinaire Desmond Murray for this shoot – an inspirational photo shoot which harnessed the specialisms of each professional to promote the qualities and capabilities of Gold Class hair extensions.
The shoot took place at the Inanch London salon on Great Portland Street, where the masterminds set to work to craft styles, which served to marry commerciality with avant-garde. Gold leaf and decadent accessories offered the optimum amount of opulence to convey the luxurious nature of the Gold Class range – a range that can be used for both professional purposes and salon-friendly styles.
“I wanted the collection to portray the commercial look but with an avant garde twist, showcasing the versatility of our hair extensions. It was truly an amazing collaboration working with 2 of my favourite artists in the industry. I think the results speak for themselves.” – Inanch Emir, Artistic Director, Inanch London & Gold Class Hair founder.
“This was a brilliant shoot, collaborating with two great artists, Inanch and Desmond Murray, to create a stunning collection, which showcases the true quality and glamour of Gold Class hair extensions. Can’t wait for the next time! “- Anne Veck, Artistic Director, Anne Veck Salons

Created by Gold Class founder Inanch Emir from our flagship Salon Inanch London who explains more about the look for the first shoot “We have concentrated on creating the most natural look for each of the models through a choice of colours and manageable lengths to use extensions to give added volume. This gives a sense of healthy hair, which is very important to our clients & us.”
The second installment continues to showcase the natural beauty and quality of the hair extensions in the uber glamorous surroundings of the historic Cliveden House.
Amidst the opulence of this historic venue and luxury hotel; Inanch was keen to develop the collection with the addition of two models and to incorporate the spring summer trends. Manageable lengths with added volume give a sense of healthy hair to each of the models.
“Creating updo’s with plenty of volume and texture shows the wearability of our extensions and how expert application can allow for this so extension wearers can have fun with their hair. Working with the hair to create natural-looking waves either for an effortless day or for evening glamour; the Gold Class extension’s quality of hair shines through.”

Can you believe we have already shot our 2015 collection? How organised are we??
We flew the team to the beautiful city of Istanbul to capture our hair in the very best light. Staying in the new Hilton Hotel in the heart of the city we had some amazing shots and then ran out to a former EFES beer factory currently being renovated for some more shots with models Imogen Leaver, Ianthe Rose and Tara Hoyos-Martinez. On our second day of shooting, Michelle Heaton joined us for a special shoot wearing a magnificent wedding dress.
The shoot went so well we also managed to sneak in some downtime and had an amazing evening dinner on the island of Kiz Kulesi – you can only get there by boat but it was so worth it and very beautiful. A great way to celebrate the end of the shoot with the whole team.
Check out our images in our gallery – hope you love them.
Special thanks to Pia Michi for their beautiful dresses!

It was back in January when we shot our collection with the gorgeous Ola Jordan and our Gold Class Girls Imogen Holly Leaver, Anastasia Smith and Charlotte Holmes. We had already applied the extensions but we added some extra clip-ins to Ola for additional effects.
The location was absolutely stunning; we could have moved in. But no time to dream, as we wanted even more shots constantly changing and playing with the hair. We somehow managed to squeeze in some #GoldClassFever and Ola wasn’t the only one dancing round.
Hope you like the images, Love Inanch xx
