Dutch Braids are having a moment right now. The French braids’ inverted sister is the queen of extension hair styles due to its intricacy; they involve crossing strands underneath to give the braid a stunning 3D effect. With additional hair, its far easier to create show stopping, elaborate braids that make everyday feel like a fashion shoot. While Dutch braids can be difficult to master with hair extensions, once you’ve mastered the technique the process can be surprisingly simple. Check out our How To Braid Hair Extensions to help you master this timeless style.

With clip in fringe, you can dramatically change your look instantly without hacking off your precious locks. Fringe hair extensions can be styled and cut individually, so you can achieve the perfect look for your face shape and desired style.

Stay retro red carpet ready.
A staple for wedding hair, the half up half down is a true classic with endless variations and limitless elegance. Perhaps as versatile as you can get, the portion of hair lifted away from your face presents infinite opportunities; from ponytails to space buns, top knots to braided fantasies. A favourite with brides worldwide, this look can work with or without hair extensions. To experiment with the look fully we suggest boosting your length and volume for maximum sophistication and impact.
More braids you say? Another of our favourites, the fishtail braid is surprisingly easy to master. The most common variation is the French fishtail, which starts at the crown of the head and works down. This type of braid is incredibly versatile once mastered, worn from festivals to funerals. Although the fishtail braid isn’t as complicated as it may seem, styling newbies may get slightly confused on their first few attempts. Check out our article on for a Step-by-Step Fishtail Braid Tutorial for a super chic double braided look.
Half Up Space Buns require enough hair for glamourous flowing locks and two voluminous messy buns… Hard right? With hair extensions this extension hair style will come together smoothly and stunningly. Space buns tread the line between cute and edgy, combining ’90s vibes with festival fun and an e-girl edge. They’re perfect for festivals, day trips and photo shoots. This look is a real showstopper!
The perfect playful extension hair style, Bubble braids are a simple variation of a classic ponytail. Unless you are lucky enough to be blessed with super long, thick locks, you’ll need the help of Hair Extensions to construct the perfect braid. Rewind to the 2021 Brit Awards, we were blown away by rising star winner Griff’s super long Bubble Braid hairstyle worn during her knockout performance of “Black hole”. Paired with a cut out, ring detailed dress; we were itching to create this warrior princess look immediately.
Creating a picture-perfect messy bun is not as easy as it sounds. Most of our attempts culminate in a pitiful Miss Trunchbull Affair, but with some hair extensions and styling magic, this can be a super successful extension hair style. Messy Buns are effortlessly chic, making the weekly office trip, first date or film night as easy as one, two, three. To prevent your luscious long locks hanging too heavily or moving around add a scrunchie for maximum hold. Also, use bobby pins for on-the-go touch ups and flyaway fixes.
Another for you brides-to-be. The low bun is a timeless creation worn at all kinds of formal occasions. It’s versatility and elegance make it a favourite for wedding hair; buns are a great way to look stylish whilst keeping the hair away from the face and back. To create a low bun extension hair style, check out our handy step by step tutorial on low bun hairstyle.
Adorable and Effortless. Twists are a staple for many. Messy or dressy, they can be styled depending on the desired look. To achieve this extension hair style, simply apply the extension as you normally would and curl your hair. Once curled, take two sections from the front of your face, and twist them to meet at the back of your head and secure. Voila! Your super simple twist is complete.
With Summer round the corner each year, it’s easy to see why beach waves are timeless. Think natural, tousled bed-head vibes that just scream you only woke up five minutes ago. If you’re looking to add a bit of length, consider hair extensions, to give you that lying-on-a-beach-in-Mykonos-with-sea-salty-hair look.
