Wear your ONYC® Hair proud! Whether you’re using ONYC® Hair extensions to add length to your locks or to create layers for a more glamorous look, we’re certain that our best hair extensions tips below can help you wear faux hair as it should be so it would look natural and blend seamlessly with your natural hair.
Choose 100% human hair.
Well, to get a hair that naturally blends with your own, you’ve got to go for 100% natural hair too. And by natural we also mean hair from the same species! By using ONYC® Hair 100% human hair extensions, you get to treat it just like your own – wash, blow dry, style it just like what you’d do with your natural hair and it will react to such treatments the same way a human hair would.
Match the color right.
To create a seamless blend, it is important that your hair extension matches the color of your hair. Remember to match it with the ends of your hair and not the roots because your extensions will sit against the hair length. Oops, wait a minute. If you are thinking of buying a shade lighter or darker and just color it with the shade similar to what you have now or color it altogether with the rest of your hair, think again. It is wise that you start first with the basics and master it first before you proceed with the more challenging part of wearing hair extensions. While you still can get hair extensions of different shade than your own to make them appear as highlights, practice and polish first the basics of blending without applying any treatment. This will make your future hair extensions shopping and wearing more convenient.
Learn the different application techniques.
By polishing your skills in applying hair extensions, you can efficiently clip, glue, or sew it into your hair. Cliché as it may sound, practice indeed makes it perfect. So take the time to watch YouTube videos and guides, ask help from your trusted hairdresser, or do some reading and research online and practice placement and application of hair extensions. Of course, you can leave the application to the experts but it is always better that you come armed with the skills should an unexpected need or circumstance arises.
Blend it well.
So you’ve got 100% natural ONYC® Hair extensions in shade that matches your hair color. Perhaps you’ve successfully clipped it in too. Now flip it and check the layers by shaking your fingers into them; you’d want the hair from the extension to blend well with the strands of your own hair. Shorter hair clipped with longer hair extensions may require a little more work because the difference in length will always be visible to the human eye. In this case, products such as ONYC® Hair blending wefts may be used to make long extensions blend well with short hair.
Hair extensions can instantly make or break your look so be sure you follow these tips so no one will know that those ONYC® Hair gorgeous locks aren’t your natural tresses.
