One of the best kept secrets of celebrity transformations is none other than great hair extensions.With the party season looming what better way to up your hair game in order to achieve you're ultimate hair goal.For year ,celebrities have  had us mere mortals in awe over their ever changing image,and most of us have often wondered how they went from short LOB to mermaid hair overnight!.

Stars such as the Kardashian’s, Chrissy Teigen, Kylie jenners and Mindy Kaling have to make sure that the ‘mane’ mission of their personal hair stylist is to keep their hair extensions in tip top condition.

Extensions have come a long way not only in terms of quality and technology but also in the wider choice of colours and price bracket.Full disclosure from these celebrity- trendsetters means that there's a lot more information readily available about hair extensions.

WHY WEAR THEM?

Hair extensions  are added to hair for lots of different reasons - all depending of course on your ultimate hair goal!

If you've decided to go that extra mile this holiday season and add some serious hair oomph to your party game ….. before you take the plunge here's our top tips this week from Pello Hair Color and Design re hair extensions how- to!

Hair extensions are a great way to add length to your hair in just a few hours .It's a great way to add fullness and body to limp hair and it's  also a great way to experiment with different styles liking adding a fringe.If you wanted a color change -up then  its a great way to add color dimension including highlights, lowlites or ombre.They can  also  be used to add bulk to your up-do on your wedding day.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF HAIR EXTENSIONS 

Clip-ins.

These are the most popular  choice for first time wearers. They are essentially clips with hair attached and they are super user friendly. As the name implies they can be clipped in and out at any time.

Tape-in extensions.

These are thin tapes held in place with strong adhesive. They are reusable and you barely feel them on your head.With this type of hair extensions you can wear your hair up or down application take around 30 minute's and they last for up to 8 weeks.

Keratin.

These are the third type of hair extensions. They are applied to your own hair with a keratin bond and last for three months or more.So before you go ahead and take the plunge make sure that the type of extensions that you go for suit your lifestyle.


GET THE RIGHT COLOUR MATCH

Make sure that the extensions are colour matched to your own hair as this is a dead giveaway.As little as one shade of a difference can make it so obvious that it's faux hair.A qualified extionist will always match as closely as possible to your own hair color or color your own hair to get the exact shade.

Our last tip of the week from Pello is that :

QUALITY ALWAYS COUNTS.

All hair extensions are different qualities.Some extensions are made from synthetic hair and are naturally the most affordable,however the downside is that they have a high shine which makes them look more obvious. Also these type of extensions tangle very easily so it doesn't make them the best choice.

However if you opt for 100% Virgin hair that's never been treated or processed with harsh chemical you're starting off on the right foot.Read reviews ,talk to your friends and go to an experienced extensionist  who uses good quality hair so you'll enjoy your new hair long after the party's over.
