  • Style Guide

    Get The Look...

    There are so many ways to style your hair extensions, straight, curly, wavy, tousled, up or down. Below is an example of wearing the extensions a little different to usual - half up and half down. Dirty Looks Clip In Hair - a must have for all extensionistas!

    Clip In Hair - Super Quiff

    For those of you who want to wear your clip in hair a little different - The super Quiff is a great half up/half down hair do.

    Step 1

    Section hair on both sides as above, from temple to corner of the crown, then from crown to top of the ear.

    Step 2

    Clip in the hair extensions from the nape up to the crown. Normally the clip in hair would be fitted around the whole head. Here we are fitting them all in the back from ear to ear. Then move the hair at the crown (outlined in pink) forward and out of the way ready for step 3.

    Step 3

    Now take the hair from the red section and tie it back into a pony tail just above the blue area of clip ins.  This will keep the side areas sleek and is a great cheat for giving height.

    Step 4

    Backcomb the darker pink area to make a secure base. Now you need to start to form your quiff, work from the crown forward and use some hairspray for control. Section by section shape the hair back and over the pony tail.

  • Fitting Illustration

    Clip In Hair - Everyday Fitting

    A basic fitting method for wearing your clip in extensions in a casual everyday style. It takes just five to ten minutes to complete a full head fitting of clip on extensions. Start by making four groups out of your clip in hair extensions according to the number of clips on each strip.

    Now take your first hair section/parting in the lower nape of the neck. Open each clip on the hair extension and insert the first '2 clip' extension in the area show in the above image - snap closed the clips and move onto the next section.

    To prevent slipping on fine hair you can tease the hair root with a comb and some hair spray. Keep working up the back of the head - section hair again and clip the next wider 3 clip extension just above the first. Repeat section by section until you have reached the top layer of hair.

    On the blue section you will apply your 3 clip quad weft, this hair extension is designed to lay flatter to the head and is more easily hidden than standard extensions, you may find you can wear it higher than a standard extension.

    Once you have fitted all the of clip in hair extensions into the back of your hair it is time to move onto the front sides. If you wear a side parting in your hair you may want to clip two of the '1 clip' wefts on the heavier side of your parting.

    There are other variations for wearing the hair extensions. Some don't wear the single 1 clip extensions at the top of the head, others wear just a few extensions at the nape. Everyone is unique and everyone will have their own way of wearing the clip in hair.

    Clip In hair Extensions - Maintenance Guide

    Do not use styling products with strong hold factor, a serum is all that is needed. To avoid damage to your own hair (and the extensions) remove before sleeping and remember clip in extensions are for occasional use and should not be worn for prolonged periods of time. Always use heat protection spray when applying heat to the extensions. A complete shampoo and treatment can be applied once every four to six weeks, only if needed (Hair extensions don't have the supply of natural oils which your own hair has and washing them too often will dry them prematurely). Apply diluted shampoo and very gently stroke through the hair from root to tip keeping hands open and flat, rinse and repeat with conditioner. The use of a shower head may be easier and keeping the top clip part of the extension dry is recommended. Avoid tangles and allow hair to air dry naturally. Do not comb hair when wet. Drying may be an overnight process, once dry gently comb through the hair starting at the tips, apply a heat protection product and straighten each strip individually, use a swift action and do not hold the straighteners in one place. If you have any concerns please contact us for full support.

    How To Dye Clip In Hair Extensions

    The extensions can only be dyed darker by 2 shades, or you can add a toner. They can’t be lightened or bleached as they have already been through a chemical process and additional lightening or bleaching is likely to affect the condition of the hair.

    If dyeing more than 2 shades darker we recommend using the ‘Dye It Yourself’ extensions they are a neutral shade and will need to be pre-pigmented prior to adding your dye.

    You will need to use more dye than if you were applying it to your own hair (usually 2 boxes of dye per whole head of extensions). You must completely saturate the extensions in dye to prevent an uneven result.

    We recommend applying dye to each strip of hair one at a time and to always perform a test strand. This means dyeing just a few strands of the hair first to check the result shade is correct.
    Do not rub or tangle the hair, apply the dye and using the flat palms of your hands pat it though the hair in a stroking motion from root to tip.

    Semi permanent, permanent, quasi-permanent, toner and vibrant dyes can be used. The maximum peroxide which can be used is 20vol (6%).

    The hair can be dyed several times but remember, just as your own hair will become damaged from certain dyes so too will the extensions.

    Always follow the dye manufacturers instructions and be sure to follow our care guidelines when washing and drying the hair.

  • Loose Side Braid Hair Tutorial

    You can never really go wrong with a braid during the summer months but this season braids are bang on trend! Braids offer so much versatility...they can be incorporated into updos and down do’s whilst being an updo and a down do by themselves! This hair tutorial is for the super chic Loose Side Braid...this style has been seen on both the Red Carpet and Catwalks recently and is a style that we love! On first glance you even start to doubt that you're even looking at a braid!

    Loose-Side-Braid-Tutorial

    The trick to this style is your technique...this will differ to any braid you have ever done!

    Step One

    For this braid you need to create lots of texture. For this we have found the best method is to dampen your hair and add some mousse to the roots of your hair. Roughly dry this upside down using hairspray as you dry. Now sweep your hair over into a deep side parting and gather your hair over your shoulder.

    Step Two

    Now you want to start your braid but unlike any other braid you don’t want to keep the hair tight or neat! Separate your hair into your 3 sections and cross over for the first section of the braid.

    Step Three

    Before you continue the braid you will want to drop some of the hair you are holding. You will pick this up in the next cross over of hair but this will give the braid a non uniform and unique look. Continue this to the end and secure with an elastic.

    Step Four

    Now your braid is secured at the ends you will want to play around with this to loosen the braid a little. It’s ok if sections fall out as this will add to the messy look however if you want a little more shape you can pin these in.


    You can dress this braid up with some flowers, ribbons or bows. What do you think of the messy braid look? Do you love it or do you prefer a neater braid?
