Extending Your Look

December 14, 2016

Sure, it’s the holiday season at the moment, but before you know it we’ll be heading into the New Year and you’ll be wondering what to do with your hair during the post-holiday slump. But, before you race out to the salon and do something drastic, why not try on a style (or two) for size? We’re talking hair extensions here – the instant way to switch up your look by adding volume and length, and even some color without a big chemical or time commitment.

Extensions today are not like they were even just a few years ago. Today’s extensions are truly extensions of your natural hair, and they can be as subtle or abrupt as you like. They add volume and as much length as you want. Plus, by choosing your colors carefully, they can also add depth or drama to your style.

For example, fringe is big right now and it shows no signs of slowing down in the coming months. But rather than go for a chop that you may come to regret, you can try it out first with extensions. Thinking about getting some highlights for the holidays? Bypass the chemical option and choose extensions in the color, or colors, you were thinking of getting. You’ll not only get the depth and color that you want, you’ll also get additional volume to pump up your look.

It’s pretty simple to style your extensions, too. Just be a little more gentle with them than you normally would be with your own hair, and loosely braid long extensions before sleep to keep them from tangling. Using a sulfate-free shampoo is important, and your natural hair will be happy for the TLC, too. With a little care, your extensions will last for weeks. And if you absolutely love them, your stylist can reapply them as your natural hair grows out.
