dos and dontsHair extensions has been a popular choice for brides to use on their big day. Brides use hair extensions to add volume to their hair or to just add some ‘oomph’ into their hairstyle of choice.

If you want to use hair extensions on your big day, here are some of the things you need to do and avoid so as to ensure that you look fabulous.

Avoid These Common Mistakes:

The Dos

  1. Ensure that your hair extensions are clean before your big day. You can clean them and air-dry them to remove all the dirt and oil that has accumulated over time. This is if you are using clip-ins or already have extensions in. For new extensions, this is not required.
  2. Use extensions that are multi-coloured as opposed to one colour extensions. This ensures that your hair looks more natural as it is hard to have a solid shade even with your own natural hair.
  3. Go for hair extensions that look as natural as possible. This is both in terms of texture and length.
  4. Curl your hair together with the extensions. This helps in creating a seamless, well put together look, which is exactly what you want on your big day.
  5. Set your curling iron on low heat (about 150 degrees) and start styling from the front to the back of your head for a more natural and polished look.

The Don’ts

  1. Attach extensions about two inches from your hairline – its best to have your hairdresser do this. This helps eliminate the discomfort that comes with placing the extension too close to the hair line and also prevents the extension from slipping out – which won’t happen if you use proper bonded extensions.
  2. Do not use too many extensions. Using too much hair than is naturally possible is not only uncomfortable but also looks unnatural. Go for an extension that adds both volume and length instead of using too many extensions to achieve different results.
  3. Do not blunt cut the extensions. Instead, allow your stylist to cut the extensions and create a layering effect, depending on the look you want to achieve. This will help you acquire a more natural look and ensure that your hair and overall look is well thought out.

So these are my top suggestions when it comes to the dos and don’ts of hair extensions. Use hair extensions wisely and you will never regret incorporating them while styling your hair on one of the most important days in your life.
