For clip-in extensions, open the clips and attach them to small sections of your hair, starting from the back of your head and work forward. 

For tape-in extensions, take a section of your hair and apply the extension adhesive to it. Press the weft onto the adhesive and hold it in place for 30 seconds. Repeat this process until all of your extensions are in place.

Coloured hair extensions are one of the hottest hair trends in the market right now. From natural blondes and browns to flamboyant reds, there is a colour for everyone! If you're looking to add some colour to your hair, coloured hair extensions are the perfect way to do so. 

Not only do they look great, but they also offer a boost in hair volume and shine. Plus, installing coloured hair extensions and alternating between colours is incredibly easy, so you never have to settle!


Which type of hair extension is best suited for fine hair?

Tape-in hair extensions are best suited for thin or fine hair because they can offer a seamless blend with your natural hair by using your natural hair to sandwich the extension wefts.

What are some tips to keep my coloured hair extensions in great condition?

Keeping coloured hair extensions in good condition requires a few simple tips. Avoid using harsh chemicals or treatments on your hair extensions, and refrain from overly frequent washing. 

When it comes to washing your coloured hair extensions, use a gentle shampoo and conditioner, which is sure to look after their condition. If you experience any hair loss or breakage, immediately consult a hair extension professional for help.

Is it necessary to have a consultation before choosing my hair extension colour?

A consultation is not required, but it is always a good idea to get a second opinion.  A professional hair extension stylist will be able to offer you advice on which colours will complement your skin tone and facial features. They can also help you determine which type of extension will best suit your hair type.

Can I dye my hair extensions?

Yes, you can dye hair extensions. There are many hair dye products on the market that are safe to use on hair extensions. 

However, we recommend that you consult a hair extension professional before dyeing your extensions, as they will be able to advise you on the best products to use to avoid damaging your extensions.
