Hair extensions are a great way to add volume to your hair. The most common types of extensions are clip-in and glue-in extensions. Both are used for different purposes. If you want to try a different style just for a day, you can go for clip-in type. Conversely, glue-in human hair extensions can last for 6 weeks. Whichever type you choose, you can now use your hair extensions on your own.

Using your comb, pull down another one inch section of your hair to drape over the completed extensions. This is now your second layer. Although three is recommended for the base layer, two extensions are enough for the remaining layers. Continue layering and clipping your extensions to the back of your head until you have about three inches of hair left at the crown for the final covering layer.

Do you have really short hair, shoulder length hair, or longer hair? While best quality tape hair extensions can be applied to hair as long as 2cm, the micro beads may be visible, if the natural hair is not a reasonable length (e.g. Just above shoulder length or 3 cm under ears).

Oil naturally produced by your scalp has no way of reaching extensions. It is important to add moisturizer with each washing to keep extensions strong. A lack of moisture results in brittle, damaged, extensions with split ends. There are moisturizers on the market specifically made for tied hair extensions extensions.

Front lace wigs with strands that are hand-tied onto the cap have a more natural look about them. Each individual hair is free to fall loosely onto the cap, giving it a free-flowing appearance. Most of the hand-tied wigs are made with human hair. The part on the wig looks as natural as it would on your own scalp. Wigs made with this much effort typically carry a price tag that reflects it.

The array of styles and colours is astounding. They come straight or in curls, long or short and can be matched to one’s natural growth perfectly. In addition, the colours can be added or removed without causing any damage. One’s appearance can be drastically changed for any occasion or just for everyday wear.

The clip-in hair extensions are a quick method of applying extensions that you can do yourself, but most other extensions require a qualified professional to get the most natural looking results and to limit any damage done to your hair. The key to correctly applying any extensions is to do so in a way that they are not noticeable and blend with your natural hair.
