Tease Your Way to the Top!

Extensions are the easiest option when it comes to adding volume. You simply put them in and head out the door. But in order to get that much needed extra volume on top, you will definitely need a teasing comb. It’s a good idea to tease the back of your head and also wear you are going to lay the headband. This will make your hair less smooth, so the extensions stay in place for all day wear. It will also help to cover the headband, so no one knows your secret!

Make it Match!

To make your extensions blend in better, add a little shine serum to your hair before applying the strands. This will make your hair look super soft and silky, which will match the extensions perfectly! I really like Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. It penetrates deep into the hair, makes it smooth, and cuts down on drying time.

Turn Them Upside Down!

If you are using extensions with clips, then place them n the direction your hair will be going. If you’ll be rocking a ponytail or updo, then place the clips upward. They will go the same way as the hair then and look super natural. It will feel weird and look weird if you place them the other way. My favorite clip-in extensions are from Luxy Hair. They feel natural and are so smooth and silky.

Length is Crucial!

Make sure your extensions are only slightly longer then your hair or at the same level. If they are too long, they don’t look good. You have to blend them well to have longer extensions. You could try layering them yourself or even go into a salon and they will do it for you. I like cutting them myself because I know what looks best in my hair and don’t have to worry about someone else cutting them too short.

Go Au Naturale!

On a more day to day basis, you can still wear extensions for a relaxed look. Make sure you wet them the night before and let them air dry. This will get rid of some of the shine, and give you a more natural look. You can also use foam rollers to give a nice lose wave to the extensions for a more natural beachy look.
