How To Use Hair Extensions 3 Ways

February 01, 2018

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, 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 pieces wisely, we will stick with the basics and give you 3 different ways that you can wear your hair extensions.

1. Straight Hair Extensions

How can you not love long straight hair on your head? Straight hair has a way of bringing out your inner diva, and adding length to the mix is no exception. Play with a side part or a middle part to get different looks. And, with straight, clip-in extensions, you don't have to commit to the long hairstyle!

2. 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 human hair extensions, 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?!

3. Add-On Hair Extensions

Add-on hair extensions involve pieces that are meant to accentuate a hairstyle as opposed to replacing it. Examples would be your ponytails, buns, or clip ins. They’re different from the previous two styles in that they can easily be removed each day, and at the same time, your real hair will be showing in some way, shape, or form. The easiest style is ponytail extensions for short hair. Ponytails can make any boring look more fierce or sophisticated, depending on the length and texture of the ponytail that you’re adding to your hair. It’s as easy as slicking 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 clip in ponytail, then just attach the clips, pull it tightly around your bun, wrap the extra piece of hair around the base, and you’re good to go! Ponytails extensions for short hair are perfect for a sleek long ponytail look.
