9 Ways Hair Extensions Can Enhance Your Look

Do you want to change up your look without having to visit the hairdresser? How about doing this in seconds and at an affordable price?

Then hair extensions are the perfect solution for you!

But with the variety of extensions available these days, it's important to know the many ways they can enhance your look so you can pick the perfect extensions for you.

1. Go From Short to Long

Going from short hair to long hair is often the first thing that comes to mind when you think of hair extensions.

You might have recently cut your hair short and you regret it. Or you're happy with your new haircut but find that you miss your long hair on certain days.

Clip-in hair extensions can be an easy way to add length to your hair when you want to. They're also a great option when you're in the awkward phase of growing your hair out after a short cut.

2. Add Body and Fullness

Even if you have long hair, it might not be as full-bodied as you like. Instead of teasing your hair every morning and risking damage, you can add extensions instead.

These will add body and fullness to your hair without all the heat tools, combs, and hairspray you'd otherwise need.

If you like to wear your hair straight, then straight and thick extensions can give body and fullness to your existing style.

3. Change Up Your Texture

Experimenting with different textures doesn't have to be stressful or damage your hair with heat tools or perms.

Maybe you want to try wearing a different look for a couple of days or you want to see how a certain texture will look on you.

Synthetic hair extensions are a great way to change up your texture without breaking the bank.

No matter which extensions you choose, make sure to take care of them and store them so they don't get tangled. No matter how good the quality of your extensions is, you need to take care of them so that they last as long as possible.

4. Go Glam

Sometimes you want to have glam hair for a day or an afternoon. This can cost you upward of 100 pounds depending on the hair salon, especially if they do cut, colour, and style.

Instead, you can spend your money once on hair extensions and have glamorous hair on-demand.

Since clip-in extensions are so easy to put in, you'll also save time when you want to have glamorous hair to match your outfit for that special occasion.

5. Pretty Ponytails

Do you want a modern, sleek high pony without having to spend all that time on it? Or maybe you want this style but you just cut your hair into a bob last week.

When you get real hair extensions, like this clip-in ponytail, you can get modern, Instagram-worthy hair in seconds. Otherwise called Remy hair extensions, these are made of unprocessed human hair.

These types of extensions are of the highest quality and will give you that healthy shine!

6. Try a New Colour

Want to try a new hair colour but aren't sure if you want to commit? Then try out extensions in a different colour. Of course, you want to make sure that the extensions blend in well and look good with your current hair colour.

If you already have balayage, then there's a higher chance that extensions in a different colour will blend in better.

Extensions are also a good option if you find that you like changing your hair colour often but don't want to dye it every week.

7. Get an Instant Hairstyle

These days, we're always on the go, and unfortunately, that doesn't leave much time to do your hair.

Whether you're going to work, school, or an evening out with friends, you shouldn't have to choose between having great hair and great makeup.

If you have long hair, then you know how long it can take to do a full hairstyle, especially if it's complicated. Extensions can give you an instant and effortless hairstyle to match the day's activities without costing you hours of precious time.

8. Quick Curls

If you're a fan of curling your hair, then you'll know that frequent use of a hair curler can fry your hair quickly.

Not only that, but depending on the weather (and your hair type), you might find that your beautiful curls undo within a few hours, no matter how much hairspray you use.

But with extensions, you can get instant curls without the heat damage (or the time investment). Plus, you can be sure that the curls will stay in place even if it's humid outside.

9. Get Celeb Style

We all know that celebs go to exclusive stylists and spend thousands of pounds each year on their hair.

And while their hair is beautiful, this type of hair routine is not relatable for most of us.

But you can get that celeb look without having to go to a celeb hairdresser. Hair extensions help you keep up with all the current celebrity hair trends without having to spend so much money.

Best of all? As long as you take care of them, your extensions will last longer than a style on your real hair would.
