So, you want to wear hair extensions, but you don’t know where to start? Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. Whether it be clip in extensions, track hair extensions, or even wigs; the possibilities are endless when it comes to enhancing your hair. While we can go on for days about the different ways to use your weaves wisely, we will stick with the basics and give you 3 different ways that you can wear your hair extensions.
Straight Hair Extensions
How can you not love long, sleek & straight hair? Straight hair has a way of bringing out your inner diva, and adding length to the mix is no exception. We recommend human hair extensions for the ultimate versatility.
Human Hair offers the most natural look and feel. It is remarkably soft with a shine and movement that is not easily duplicated in synthetic hair. It is also extremely versatile. Human Hair can be cut and styled to suit your personal tastes. And while it can be a more expensive pick, with the proper care, it is also more durable and can last over a year.
Curly Hair Extensions
You know how they say curls are a girl’s best friend? Curly hair extensions tend to be lower maintenance than straight ones, and also give you a very feminine look. Having your hair extensions curly is definitely a plus because you can just spray it with a little water then walk out the door. Every now and then, you’ll need a little product to combat frizz, but curly hair is definitely good for those who don’t want to wake up and straighten their hair every day.
This isn’t to say that you can’t switch up your curly look. If you opt for virgin or Remy hair, you can straighten the hair one day, and then wet it up to make the hair return to its curly state. Can you say two styles in one? Again, sew these wefts in to hold them in place as you go on about your busy day!
Clip-In Hair Extensions
Clip-In hair extensions involve pieces that are meant to accentuate a hairstyle as opposed to replacing it. This can be for adding length, volume, or amping up an updo with ponytails or buns. They can easily be removed after each wear, and allow some of your natural hair to make an appearance. One of our favorite easy styles is turning short hair into a long, luscious ponytail with a simple hairpiece.
Ponytails add a fierce edge or sophistication to your look, depending on the length and texture of the ponytail that you’re adding to your hair. Here's a quick run-down on on how to do it:
- Slick your hair into a tight ponytail using your favorite hair gel or edge control.
- Make sure that you do not pull your hair all the way through after you reach your desired tightness, meaning leave it in that little bun!
- If you have a drawstring ponytail, then just attach the combs, pull it tightly around your bun, wrap the string around the base, and you’re good to go!
Ponytail extensions for short hair are perfect for if you want a big juicy bun with bangs or a sleek long ponytail that comes from the top of your head. And there you have it! Now you can use your powerful ponytail knowledge and go be fabulous.
