Thinking about getting hair extensions, but not fully sold yet? Let me help you with this blog and a list of 10 reasons why getting hair extensions fitted in your mane will be the best decisions you could make for your hair.
From adding thickness and length to adding a dash of color for the new season, there are so many reasons human hair extensions can be a real game changer for your hairstyle, boosting your confidence and allowing you to switch from look to look in a matter of minutes. Whether you are looking for an everyday transformation or want to try a sophisticated look for a special occasion, the right set of hair extensions will have you sorted.
1. Boost Volume
The big, luscious and voluminous hairstyles you’ve seen on your favourite celebrities? Let me unveil the secret: in most cases, it’s hair extensions (if not a whole wig)!
Human hair extensions are well-known in industries such as cinema, fashion and beauty. More often than you’d think, they aren’t used just to add precious inches to someone’s mane after they’ve gone for a big chop and regretted it, but they are involved in boosting thickness and volume for a glamorous, bouncy look. Adding depth and movement with hair extensions and the right blowout will have you look (and feel) like a famous person in no time.
Seamless clip in hair extensions are perfect for those who have fine hair and would like to try a new look every now and then; they can be applied in the comfort of your own home and be popped on and off whenever you’d like. No particular expertise is requires, and with their silicon-lined seams and super-discreet clips that lay flat against the scalp, this type of hair extensions promises a gorgeous, shiny makeover in no time. Cliphair’s seamless hair extensions are made of 100% Remy Royale human hair of the highest quality, making it a luxury accessory that is carefully selected and treated to stay soft and manageable, keeping frizz at bay and with strands that are double drawn for you to achieve a makeover that won’t leave your ends feel empty and thin.
Staying on the Remy Royale range for thin-haired people, Nano Ring hair extensions are also a great solution for those looking for a permanent change. Nanos move exactly like your natural hair, and stays virtually invisible even in the trickiest updos.
2. Add Length
Are you trying to grow you hair out? Speed up the process with the aid of hair extensions. Whilst you take care of your natural tresses and wait for them to grow longer, you can still achieve long and dreamy hairstyles with the right type of hair extensions. Celebrities like Millie Bobby Brown go from chin-grazing bobs to waist-long princess hair all the time, and how do you think they do it? That’s right – hair extensions, once again, is the answer.
If you like to wear your hair down, long and flowy, then tape in hair extensions are probably the best solution for you. They are fast to apply and give incredible results, being gentle to your natural hair without all the stress of glue or keratin. Adding length to your tresses has never been easier, and you can count on this type of hair extensions to perform wonders in your hair.
On the other hand, if you’re looking to achieve a long and luscious updo, then look no further than the wrap around ponytail hair extensions set – the accessory that allows you to get the famous hairstyle made famous by people like Kim Kardashian.
3. Add Color
Thinking of adding a dash of color in your hair? Forget about the damage of a bleach job or having to top up your toner at the salon with recurrent appointments; why not go for mixed-shade hair extensions instead? From bold, bright shades such as pink or blue to natural hues that will add body and movement to your mane, hair extensions can help you achieve a brand new look without having to damage your hair.
Balayage hair extensions are great to give your mane a summer makeover with a sun-kissed effect without all the fuss of bleaching and toning. On top of that, a balayage in a double weft hair extensions set will make you holiday-ready with the right amount of depth and fullness to achieve unforgettable blowouts.
Let’s be honest: having flawless hair is expensive, even if you’ve been genetically blessed with perfect tresses. From tools to products, hair dye, salon appointments, trims and whatnot, keeping things glamorous up there is a true investment. Speaking of investments, hair extensions could help you with that too!
If you think about the price of a set of hair extensions, you may think: “How is this going to help me? If anything, I’m spending even more!”. Yes, right now you are – but in the long run, hair extensions that help you with color and thickness will save you lots of time and money. You won’t need to salvage your tresses with expensive reconstructing products after getting too happy with bleach and highlights, and wearing hair extensions may also help give your hair a break from heat-damage.
If you’re the type of person that snoozes their alarm more than they’d like to admit, then let me tell you: hair extensions can be a life saver in these cases.
Let’s say that you forgot to wash your hair: tie it up in a sleek ponytail with the aid of your clip in ponytail hair extensions, and you’re all sorted – in less than 5 minutes! You can also braid it, or style it in a bubble ponytail or a fancy top-knot.
And what about clip in hair extensions? Pop them on and get them going in two trendy plaits for a whimsical, romantic look. The possibilities are endless!
6. Oh, So Glamorous
Remy hair extensions will boost your natural hair in an effortless way, meaning that even if you don’t have the time to style it in glossy Hollywood waves, your hair will naturally look better with hair extensions in. On top of that, the lived-in lazy hairstyle is quite trendy, too. You can add a bit of texture with a sea-salt spray for a tousled, glamorous bed-head finish and voila – you’re all set!
7. Minimal Maintenance
Hair extensions are quite easy to take care of – from washing to styling, knowing what to do is essential – but once you’re familiar with a hair extensions routine, you’ll be able to make them live a long and luscious life, making them a cost-effective investment that will last for months and months. In the case of tape in hair extensions you will need to get them removed after a period of 8-10 weeks, whilst nano ring hair extensions will be able to be re-used for your top-up appointment if you’ve been properly taking care of them.

Who doesn’t like changing images every now and then? With all the new aesthetics trending all over social media and celebrities dictating new fashion statements every month or so, it’s easy to be tempted by the idea of a fabulous makeover. Hair extensions can help you with that, especially if you’re looking for a temporary change such as in the case of clip in hair extensions. If you have commitment issues at the thought of cutting your own hair but are in love with the idea of trying bangs, for example, you could use a clip in fringe and switch between looks whenever you’d like.
9. Special Occasions
A day at the office might not be enough to convince you to get hair extensions, but if you’re looking to stun your audience at a special occasion – such as your wedding, for example – then all of a sudden the arrow tilts towards YES rather than NO. Bridal looks more often than not feature the use of accessories such as Ultra Volume hair extensions to get epic hairdos that feature lots of bounce, texture and hair jewellery.
10. Correct Mistakes
Botched a haircut? Then you may need help to correct it. Whilst you can adjust your hair care routine to help your hair grow longer and healthier, there is no miracle potion that will bring your messed-up latest experiment with the shears – but there are hair extensions that could help you hide the mistake whilst you wait!
