We've been telling everyone about how celebs go from a Bob to mermaid hair overnight?

Stars like Chrissy Teigen, Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande, Selina Gomes and so on ....


YES! Extensions have now come a long way when it come to quality and technology that you don't even notice that everyone has extensions already!

This formal season and women's month, we all want to feel good and look good with our self and we will be here to help you as you change your hair lifestyle.

Read this before you indulge in this "hair lifestyle"

1. Consider what you do daily. 

“The entry level—the gateway drug—is our clip-ins.” Those are most popular with beginners since they’re so user-friendly. Essentially barrettes with hair attached, they can be clipped in or out whenever you’d like. The second option is tape extensions; those are held in place with strong, invisible bi-adhesive premium tape that’s undetectable to the touch; they last for up to eight weeks. So if you are an active person, don't worry we got you!


2. Get the right color match.

Being off even by a shade is a dead giveaway that you’re wearing faux hair. The most accurate way is to color match with the ends of your locks, not the roots, and go with the color that’s the most prominent in your natural hair. 


3. Splurge on quality.

Synthetic extensions are the most affordable, but they tangle easily and have a super high shine, which makes them look obviously unnatural. And non-virgin hair means it’s been processed—either dyed or treated to change its texture—so it’s also not ideal, since it’s more damaged. Remy extensions are the highest quality. They’re the closest to your real hair, so they’ll hold styles and texture the same way and won’t shed as much as the cheaper options.


4. Do maintenance work. 

Just like your natural hair, extensions need proper care.

- Wash clip-ins every six to eight times that you wear them, depending on how much product you’re using.

- Give them a little bath in your sink and dry them on a towel. Before washing clip-ins, remove them and comb out any tangles.

- Use a shampoo and conditioner free of sulfates and parabens, and blot them with a towel to remove excess water, then let them air dry.

- Use a gentle shampoo for tape-on and keratin extensions too, focusing on the roots, and condition only from the mid-length of the hair down.

- Protect your extensions by waiting until they’re mostly dry to use heat styling tools, and avoid using those directly on the tape and keratin bonds.

NOTE: And don’t go to bed with wet hair—make sure your hair is totally dry before you hit the pillow.
