2: Non-slip technique

If you have second-day hair or have been wearing your extensions for a long period of time, you may have trouble with your hair extensions slipping. This may also be the case if your hair is a bit thinner. The trick is to add some hold to your hair before you clip your extensions in, divide your hair and tease the roots for extra hold.

Hangers are great for keeping your hair more luscious for longer, they help to keep your hair nice and tangle free. That is not the only benefit of using hair extension hangers. Styling is always difficult at the back of your head whether it’s your natural hair or extensions. To make it easier, style your hair extensions whilst they are still hung up. You will get the look you want and save a lot of time.

4: Upside down hair extensions

We know hot crazy the idea of wearing your extensions upside down is. however, when you are creating an updo, whether it is a ponytail or an intricate bun, things are a little different.

When you have your extension in the normal way and trying to create these styles, it can be a little bit harder to conceal the seams. The trick is to place your extensions in, upside down from the nape of your neck to your ears. This will make blending in your hair extensions so much easier.

5: Tones and layers

When you are trying to create different tones of the same colour, i.e darker and mid-toned brunette, then layering is the best way to make this seem more natural. This look has been gaining a lot of attention recently due to the increasing popularity of balayage.

To create this with hair extensions, make sure you clip them in horizontally to create layers that will match your hair cut.
