Spring is right around the corner, with many shops already filled with pastel hues and pretty dresses, but what are you going to do with your hair this spring? Spring styles are traditionally romantic – think long, loose waves, French or Fishtail braids or soft, tousled buns and up-dos. If your hair is short, fine or lacking volume, what’s a girl to do?
Pre-bonded hair extensions
Pre-bonded hair extensions are the perfect way to add length, volume, or even streaks of colour to your natural hair. Forget clip-in extensions which can often look unnatural, pre-bonded extensions are the way forward! Keratin pre-bonded extensions can be applied to your own hair quickly and easily by a professional hair stylist, and you can choose the length you want, so whether you just need a few more inches to create romantic up-dos or are looking for full-on glamorous curls for spring, it’s achievable.
Choosing the right hair
When choosing hair extensions, make sure you look for high-quality human hair, such as European or Indian hair, as this will blend more seamlessly with your own hair to create a natural look. Italian keratin bonds are the strongest, safest type of bonds on the market, so look for these wherever possible. Your pre-bonded extensions will be applied to your hair using a tube or heat connector tool, depending on whether you choose stick tip or flat tip extensions. With proper aftercare, they can last for up to three months, and you can wash and style them just as you would your normal hair.
Creating romantic styles
It’s easy to create romantic styles with your new longer, fuller hair. Why not try a fishtail or inverted braid over one shoulder for a simple, everyday look that’s pretty and easy to achieve? Or a low, messy bun for those relaxed weekends? For nights out or a romantic meal, full, loose waves or curls are pretty and sexy. Having longer hair means you can be more versatile when it comes to styling – there’s no need to pull your hair back into a ponytail anymore; you can play around with a whole range of different hairstyles for spring, whether you’re dressing up for a special occasion or dressed down for every day.
Hair extensions are a great way to change your look, and it’s up to you whether you decide to have new extensions fitted after three months or go back to your old style – chances are, you’ll love the versatility that longer hair gives you and will decide that you want to keep wearing them!
