Hair Styling Tools and Accessories Explained 

We all have our own favourite tools and tricks that we rely on when it comes to dressing up our hair but its good to branch out sometimes and try new instruments that could improve your styling time and ease. Its also important to remember that Hair Extensions aren’t suited to all hair tools as they can effect the seams or attachments. We have listed and explained below our must have Hair extensions styling staples that we just couldn’t live without, these tools also feature in most of the styling tutorials you will find in this blog. 

Hair Curlers  

Hair Curlers come in all shapes and sizes, depending on the curl size you want and on your hair length/thickness will determine the size of wand you need. For very short hair a smaller sized Barrell would be better as you might struggle to get the hair neatly wrapped round a large tong. For long hair a thin barrel will give you tight curls, if you are looking for a looser wavy style then choose a large or wide barrel shape. Our favourite is the GHD Curve Soft Curl Tong, the size is perfect for big bouncy curls and with a maximum temperature of 185 degrees its perfectly safe for use with hair extensions. 

Hair Straighteners 

Hair Curlers come in all shapes and sizes, depending on the curl size you want and on your hair length/thickness will determine the size of wand you need. For very short hair a smaller sized Barrell would be better as you might struggle to get the hair neatly wrapped round a large tong. For long hair a thin barrel will give you tight curls, if you are looking for a looser wavy style then choose a large or wide barrel shape. Our favourite is the GHD Curve Soft Curl Tong, the size is perfect for big bouncy curls and with a maximum temperature of 185 degrees its perfectly safe for use with hair extensions. 

Hair Waver

The hair waver is a relatively new invention that has taken the hair world by storm! Its no secret that Beach Waves and Mermaid hair have been ultimate hair goals for the last 5 years if not more and right now in 2021 they’ve never been hotter. Unfortunately, that beachy look is quite tricky to achieve on straight or silky hair so this tool is an absolute lifesaver for anyone who struggles to get that textured bend in their hair. Its basically a modern-day giant crimper that the hair is sandwiched between leaving a deep wave pattern imprinted on the hair. Our favourite is the Mermade Pro Waver which comes in a cute pastel pink and white color. 

Hair Extensions Hanger

Even though we prefer and recommend styling the Hair Extensions whilst they are attached in your hair for better blending its always handy to have a hanger for other purposes. A hanger will securely hold your hair extensions in place whilst you style, brush or dry them. We love to use them for after we wash our clip ins, simply hang them overnight for even drying that will cut your styling time in half! Our favourite is the Hair Extension Holder from Easiweft which has suction cups to easily place on walls and windows. 

Heat Protection Spray

Cliphair Heat Protection Spray

$25 USD

Heat Protection sprahttps://Heat Protection spray y is one of the most important products every hair extension owner should have in their styling bag. To prevent your hair from drying out its critical to use heat protection spray before each use of a heated tool.

Heat opens and weakens the hair cuticle leaving the hair looking and feeling dry and damaged, heat protection spray creates a barrier on the hair stopping the heat from penetrating into the hair. Our favourite is the Cliphair Heat Protection Spray that’s perfect for use with Hair Extensions and comes with a fresh, fruity scent. 

Silk Hair Scrunchie 

Hairbands are a secret assassin when it comes to causing hair breakage and the worst part is most of us don’t even realise, we are damaging our precious hair when we use them. Look for hairbands or scrunchies that have a silky fabric covering over the elastic part to keep your hair safe but also looking fabulous. Scrunchies are sooo popular right now, that retro vibe is so on trend so you wont even have to sacrifice your style to stop your hair from breaking. Our favourite is this adorable Large pale blue silk scrunchie from Silk Works London.

Hair Extensions Hairbrush

CLIPHAIR SATIN TOUCH DETANGLING HAIR BRUSH

$30 USD

Using the wrong hairbrush on your extensions can damage them and also your own hair. Whether your using permanent hair extensions or Clip-ins this is a extremely important step that should not be skipped! Brushes that have bobbles on the ends like paddle brushes can catch the bonds or seams of the extensions and pull them out which can in turn cause tension on your own hair that can be uncomfortable.

Brushes with plastic spikes glide over the attached areas without displacing or snagging on the hair causing absolutely not damage or pull. Our favourite is our Cliphair Detangling Brush that comes with a handle attached for even more control.

Styling Hair Extensions FAQ

What Hairstyles can I do with Hair Extensions? 

Your styling options are endless when you add Hair Extensions to your hair. You can use them to add volume, fullness, length and even color. Try experimenting with lighter shades than your hair to give a Balayage look without even needing to dye your hair!

What types of Hair Extensions look the most natural?

 Permanent hair extensions that are applied by a professional extensionist tend to give the most natural finish as they are smaller and can be positioned closer to the hairline. 

How should my hair be worn to bed with Hair Extensions? 

With temporary hair extensions they should always be removed before sleeping and showering to avoid any damage to your own hair. If you have permanent hair extensions applied you should put your hair into a loose braid before bed to stop the hair from tangling. 

What are the best hairstyles with extensions for black hair? 

The advantage of having black or dark brunette hair is the dazzling shine! Sleek and smoother styles will show this off to the maximum so going for slick high ponytails and flowing glam will make that shine pop. 

What are the best blonde hair with extensions styles?

As blonde hair tends to have many different tones, braids and hair up styles really extenuate this. Usually its slightly drier in texture too so it stays in place really well which works better for intricate and detailed styles. 

How do you style keratin bond hair extensions? 

Styling Keratin bond hair extensions isn’t as scary as it sounds. As the hair is human you can use the same techniques as with your own hair however you just need to avoid using and products or heat directly on or near the bonds of the extensions. The bonds of the extensions are the parts that are attached to your hair at the root.
