God bless the humble hair extensions that have proved game-changing for every girl with thin, fine and not-so-long hair. From making your hair appear thicker, longer and seemingly perfect, hair extensions are every woman’s answer to rapunzel-like hair.
If you’re someone who wears hair extensions on the reg, we have some clever styling tips that will help you make the most of these babies. Wanna know what they are? Scroll down to find out.
Clip and curl
If you are going for the straight hair look, you can straighten your hair extensions separately. But if you are going for spiral curls or soft waves, the better thing would be to clip them on first and then curl your tresses together. Curling your extensions separately and then clipping them on can give you uneven waves which can look anything but glamourous.
An amazing way to blend your hair extensions with your natural hair is to braid it. Try micro braids or braided hairdos like a braided ponytail or half up half down to keep your hair extensions from peeping or looking obvious. Take half of the extension hair and half of your natural hair and French or Dutch braid it all the way till the end to make it blend with your hair seamlessly.
Clip them upside down
Here’s a styling trick that will not only give you a fluffier ponytail and a puffier bun but also camouflage your extensions like they are not even there. Place your hair extensions upside down at the crown of your head and clip-on. It avoids bumps, adds tons of volume to your hairdo and the hair tie or the bun covers up the wefts like magic. This trick works especially well for girls with thin hair to pull off hairstyles like ponytails, buns and any high updo.
