If you are experiencing hair envy like I am don’t fret! Whether you may know this or not- I got a Brazilian (yes I told everyone I got one of them and they all thought I was referring to a Brazilian on my naughty parts!) But alas no I actually got a Brazilian Blowout- which cost me a FORTUNE and will only lasted about four months at which point I decided I couldn’t possibly go back to the salon and fork over another king’s ransom worth of shekels. So what’s a woman who wants to get bombshell hair to do?!
Check out human hair extensions which is a great way to enhance your mane in an instant. The key is to follow these steps to ensure that they appear natural and blend well with your real strands. Keep reading for key tips on how you can achieve bombshell hair!
#1 Have enough pieces of hair extensions.
The number of extension pieces in your possession needs to match the density of your hair. Thus, if your hair is thick, then many pieces are needed to match all the hair you have. But if you have finer or thinner hair, fewer pieces will be needed. If you have shorter hair, many pieces of extensions will also be needed to cover all short layers.
#2 Use the correct type of extensions
If your locks are fine or thin, clip-ins will probably not do you any favours. They will weigh your hair down and be found almost immediately. Use tape in hair extensions instead.
#3 Get extensions that match the colour of your real strands.
When it comes to getting hair extension pieces, know that they will still blend even if they are three shades lighter or darker than your strands. However, if your strands are of an unusual colour for some reason, like because you had it dyed recently, you need to make sure that the products you purchase have the same colour as your real (dyed) hair. This is possible through a service known as colour matching.
With colour matching, Keep in mind that there is no need to match colours down to the root, just the shaft and ends. Also, to ensure proper blending, this needs to be done in person by a professional, so book your session with the stylist today.
Want to use hair extensions as a way of adding highlights to your hair? Colour matching can still help as it ensures that the colours go well together.
#4 Use hair extensions of varying lengths.
Ladies with thin, shoulder length hairare the only ones who can wear extensions flawlessly with minimal effort. This is because they just need one length and just the right amount of hair to improve their hair’s appearance.
However, if your hair is long or has layers, two varying hair lengths may be necessary. The longer set should give your hair additional length, and the shorter set to blend with all layers.
#5 Get human hair extensions online or offline.
This is very important. While cheap extensions made from synthetic material work to give your hair a longer and thicker appearance, they mat after washing. When this happens, your head becomes a complete mess that cannot be sorted out unless the extensions are removed.
But with extensions made from real human hair, your hair can appear longer and thicker for a long time as these products do not mat and frizz after one wash. And since they are not that easy to damage,there is no need to replace them right away.And since they do not need to be replaced in such a short time, buying them means saving lots of money later on.
#6 Visit a trustworthy professional hairstylist.
This is a must-do step once you have purchased your hair extensions. Although you or a trusted friend can set up extensions on your head, a visit to the hairstylist can assure you that the pieces will look no different from your real strands. Stylists can also make alterations that result in a better-looking and more stylish hairdo.
It doesn’t take much to ensure a better appearance with hair extensions. However, you may need to do many things to make sure that the hair extensions on your head last very long, even if they are not easy to damage. Thus, it’s also important to know the correct hair extensions maintenance steps through your trusted extensions dealer.
#7 Once you are home When styling hair, use a paddle brush and sprinkle a dry shampoo in it. Tap out the brush and flip your hair over and brush through. This will create incredible body throughout. And use a curling iron to curl sections that frame your face. Alternate turning the iron from front to back on each different section to get the most natural effect.
