Word around the street is that, hair extensions are a great way to experiment with various styles. But you knew that already, didn’t you?
After all, this is the reason why you got those luxury hair extensions in the first place. The only problem is that you’re still learning the ropes of styling your hair. This is why we’ve got hold of some nifty tips that make life easier for you.
Let’s have a look at these super simple hair extension hacks:
1. Use a Hanger for Styling
Do you find it hard to style your extensions?
If you think about it, styling your clipped-in extensions can be a struggle when they are attached to your head. The worst case scenario is that you’ll probably pull out one of those wefts. Is there a way to get out of this tangled mess?
We suggest that you detach your extensions and use a hanger as a makeshift hair stand. This serves two styling purposes. Firstly, you now have the freedom to use both hands for styling. Secondly, keeping your extensions in front of you makes it easier to correct any styling errors.
Pro tip: Try to pre-curl or straight iron your human hair extensions the night before of a big event. Doing so, allows you to spend extra time doing your make up.
2. Create Perfect Layers
Have you been eyeing those chic layered hairstyles?
Well, we’ve figured out a way for you to get that look without cutting your hair. All you need are some clip-in hair extensions (preferably long ones). Then instead of attaching them conventionally in a straight line, create sections of your hair and clip them in diagonally. Installing your hair extensions in diagonal direction helps create a wonderful high to low effect. This gives your hair that layered illusion.
3. Simple Brushing Tips
Do your hair extensions get tangled with your brush?
If styling your extensions might be hard. But brushing those strands isn’t easy either. It actually has a tendency to become a tug of war with your hairbrush. Doesn’t it?
This is why we’ve decided to share some brushing tips for hair extensions:
- Opt for looped hand brushes that have soft bristles
- Always brush your hair in gentle strokes
- Back comb your wefts if you have thin hair
On the whole, these nifty tricks come in handy for everyday styling. They save time, tears and the money spent on booking hair appointments. So we suggest that you practice these tips and rock those faux locks like a pro.
