The highlight and blusher wefts are smaller than regular wefts, which makes them a great fit for a naturally highlighted look. They also come in two lengths (16-18" and 20-22") which gives you the freedom to create your ideal length.

To get beautiful standard highlights, it's best to go for a weft that is one to two shades lighter than your hair as this will promote a natural look. It's good to know that the wefts can also be thinned out too.

If you look at a picture of your favourite celebrity, chances are that their stylist has adorned their locks with some micro highlights to create fullness and texture to their hair.

 

If you don't have a celebrity hair guru at your fingertips, then you can easily get the micro-highlighted look with your hair extensions! Ask your hair-stylist to thin the wefts out using a razor or a pair of thinning scissors to get incredibly subtle and gorgeous glamourous highlights.

Top Tips for Highlighting your Hair Extensions

Standard Highlighting - You can go bold with your blush, but for a beautiful salon finish highlighted look it's best to use wefts that are one to two shades lighter than your hair!

Micro-Highlighting - Get the delicately highlighted look by asking your stylist to thin out your wefts for marvellous micro-highlights. The micro-highlighted look is amazing for creating instant texture and body in your hair.

Low-Lights - You can easily achieve a low lightened look by opting for blusher wefts one to two shades darker than your hair. Opting for darker tones will allow you to create more depth and richness to your hair.

Ombre - To get a dazzling ombre look, we would recommend that you opt for wefts the same shade as your ombre or your desired ombre shade as the tops of the wefts can be coloured darker, but they can't be bleached or lightened!

If you're after a quick and easy way to add some highlights to your hair extensions, the highlight and blusher wefts are the perfect pieces for you.
