6 Different Ways to Use Hair Extensions

Are you considering buying hair extensions but not sure whether to make the splurge? Are you wondering what you can do with them in the first place?

If you want to learn more about what hair extensions can be used for and their perks, this blog post is for you. Today we will share six different ways to use hair extensions! 

1. To amp up your ponytail or messy bun 

If what you are looking for is extra volume and body to your hair, clip-extensions may also be suitable for you! Hair extensions can be used to add dimension to many hairstyles such as these ponytails and these messy buns. There isn’t a need to use your entire set to achieve greater body in your hair; only using a few of your 1 and 2 clip wefts may be enough to add length and volume to your updo.

2. To add volume

Do you dream of transforming your thin hair into thick voluminous locks? Hair extensions add body and dimension to your hair, which can help your dream come true! :) 

3. To create longer and thicker braids

Have you ever wanted those perfectly thick and long braids that you see on Pinterest? I know I have! Hair extensions are the perfect solution for this! Simply put in your extensions and braid your hair like you would with your natural hair and voilà – say hello to your beautiful extra-thick braid! Also, feel free to experiment with different kinds of braids – the fishtail braid, the dutch braid, the mermaid braid, the bow braid; the list goes on…

4. To add highlights and color

Want to experiment with color in your hair but aren’t feeling that brave to color it permanently? Extensions are a great solution! You can either add extensions that are a shade or a few shades lighter to add highlights to your natural hair or to add an ombre effect to your natural locks. Mimi wears her Ombre Chestnut set here and her Ombre Blonde set here.

5. To accessorize

A last great way to use your hair extensions is to use them as accessories in your hair. By braiding a 3-clip weft, you can create a braid headband that will be perfect for any summer festival! Make sure to check out Mimi’s video where she shows you how easy it is to accessorize with your extensions.

6. To add length

And of course...hair extensions also add instant length. Do you wish you had long hair after having chopped your hair? Or maybe you feel as though you can’t grow your hair anymore? Whatever the case may be, clip-in hair extensions is an instant solution to help you achieve the long hair you’ve always wanted. These lovely waves and these tight curls are great hairstyles to show off your long hair.
