Hair extensions are a fun way to switch-up your look, add some volume and give your hair some extra length without committing to just one particular style. Make the most of your extensions this summer with some of the hottest hairstyles that emphasise your long locks, rather than drawing attention to the tracks.
One of the best parts about having hair extensions is the extra volume it gives. Brush hair into a slicked-back ponytail, then wrap it around the elastic to form a sleek, ballerina bun. Feel free to use extra bobby pins to keep shorter layers and stray hairs away.
Wear your hair down for a special event by creating some instant texture with the help of a curling wand. Take small sections of hair, wrap them around the wand for 7-10 seconds, then release and shake the strand of hair. This creates instant volume without the use of hairspray!
For a day at the gym, keep hair away from your face with a high ponytail. This style is also friendly for extensions, since you can easily hide any tracks.
Who else feels like this hairstyle is a not-so-subtle nod to the nineties? Make the most of your extra length and volume by dividing hair into two sections and making the top into a high ponytail. It gives the illusion of extra hair without getting into your face!
Keep your extra hair looking tangle-free in a popular protective hairstyle – the fishtail braid. If you find it rather difficult to master (YouTube tutorials are always easy!), then a standard braid is also ideal.
