Want voluminous, thick, lustrous locks this season? Then wave goodbye to lack-lustre hair as we show you how to use hair extensions for volume. Read on to find out our tips on how to give a your tresses a boost.
It’s no secret that hair extensions can put the vava voom into our flat, limp hair and give us glamorous, celebrity-inspired tresses we all desire. The question is, how to use hair extensions for volume? There are several ways to achieve fuller, bigger locks with hair extensions and it’s all down to how you use them. So, without further ado, here are our tips on how to create beautiful body and thick, voluminous hairstyles using clip in hair extensions.
Style your hair extensions
Our first tip on how to use hair extensions for volume is to curl your hair extensions. Using a curling wand like the Babyliss Pro Conical Wand, will help create waves and blend your extensions with your own natural hair texture for a seamless, voluminous hairstyle.
Wear a volumising hair piece
Alternatively, if you are looking for an instant volume boost, you can always invest in a volumising hair piece like the Bobby Glam Hair Bouffant Volumizer Hair Extension. This hair booty does exactly what it says on the tin- provides gorgeous volume to your Bardot-inspired bouffant.
Not only that, but the Bobby Glam Hair Bouffant can be equally as functional for applying volume to the crown of your head before letting your hair hang loose into tumbling, tousled tresses. So if you want bootiful-body and 60's pin up hair 'do, then is is the hair piece for you.
Clip in hair extensions
Another tip on how to use hair extensions for volume is to reverse the way you clip in your hair extensions. As tricky as it sounds, it’s really not that complicated. Simply flip your head over and clip in your hair extensions upside down as opposed to flat on the hairline. Then flip your head back again and your hair extensions should create big, beautiful hair without the need of any styling products- score!
Use volumising products
Regardless if you’re using hair extensions for volume or not, if your own growing hair is forever falling on the flat side, then it’s time to take a look at the products you are using. So before you clip in your hair extensions, why not give your hair a head-start by applying volumising products to it? When clipping in your hair extensions, we recommend using dry shampoo on your own hair, as this will provide a grip for your clip-ins to hold on to and give volume to your limp locks, too.
Visit your hair stylist
Our last tip on how to use hair extensions for volume is to have your hair extensions cut by a stylist. Although it might sound counter-productive having your Rapunzel hair chopped off, getting your hair extensions cut will actually help to blend your extensions with your own growing hair and provide natural- looking volume, without compromising on the length.
There’s plenty of ways to use hair extensions for volume and it’s all about finding what works for you and your own natural, growing locks, too.
