How To Choose The Best Clip In Hair Extensions?

Clip in hair extensions makes an excellent addition to every girl’s hair styling accessories. They’re becoming significantly more well-liked, and girls are keen to purchase them so they can accomplish that celeb look themselves. However, not all hair extensions are the same and buyers have to understand precisely what they’re buying.

So where do you start?

Cost is not the only thing you must be thinking about when buying clip in extensions. The most crucial factors you have to think about are the quality of the hair, the overall density and the manner in which the set is built. The proper combination of these factors will guarantee that you are purchasing something that gives you the results you want and serve you well for years to come.

What to look out for when choosing a clip in hair extension?

So where do you start? Well, one thing that you need to look out for is quality. To accomplish a natural and beautiful appearance, it’s vital to choose hair extensions which are made from 100% Remy human hair or what we might call human hair wigs.

Note that some hair extensions are a mix of real human hair and artificial hair which might seem practical but will not give natural-looking results. Having clip in extensions which are made from 100% human hair indicates that you’ll have the ability to utilise curling irons, hair straighteners, shampoos, conditioners and treatments and you’ll also have the ability to colour the hair with ease.

Choosing Remy hair is likewise essential merely since it suggests that the cuticle of the hair is still intact after processing as well as the all of the hair runs within the exact very same instructions from root to idea. These aspects will make sure that the hair lasts longer and lowers tangling.

Choosing the right thickness for your clip in hair extension

The second thing you must consider before parting with your hard-earned money for a set of clip in hair extensions is thickness.

Now we are not talking about the thickness of the individual hair strand but the overall volume of the hair extension. This is very important because you do not wish to purchase hair that is too thin. Thin hair extensions will, unfortunately, look thin at the bottom compared with the rest of your hair and will for that reason seem fake and a waste of money.

The weight of the extensions, combined with the length is what identifies the total thickness of the hair. The more the hair weighs, the more hair there is. For that reason the, thicker hair extensions means a more glamorous and natural appearance.

Ideally, your chosen hair extension ought to be 20 inches long and weigh around 160 grams. For this length, it is not ideal to pick up anything less than 120  grams. So if you want to get longer or shorter clip in hair extensions, you can utilise this weight as an indicator of hair volume.

The method the set of clip in hair extensions is constructed is the 3rd function you need to contemplate when choosing which ones to get. This aspect is consisted of many things you might wish to understand including the number of pieces or wefts inside the set, their size, and is the hair double-wefted or not. The number of bits (also described as wefts) inside the set needs to be on typical be 7 to 10. Having 7 to 10 pieces will enable you to uniformly distribute the hair around your head to aid you to achieve a lot more natural look. Your set needs to have more significant bits for the back of your head and smaller ones for the side region. Also guarantee that the wefts are what is described as double-wefted, which is two rows of the stitched hair (weft) sewn together, so you’ll have the ability to achieve a fuller appearance without having to have too numerous pieces. Please also guarantee that the clip in hair extensions are made with safe and secure silicon-backed clips for a lot more comfortable fit.

So there you have it — a few important things that you need to know before buying hair extensions. Taking into account all three factors mentioned above will go a long way towards helping you get the right hair extension that best suits your needs.

How to Choose the Perfect Hairstyles for your Face

There must be a million and one ways to style our hair.

If you like your hair styled short, there are short hair styles for women, short hairstyles for men, short curly hair styles, short black hair styles, celebrity short hair styles, etc.

If you like your hair styled long, there are long frizzy hair styles, long curly hair styles, long layered hair styles, long braided hair styles, etc. However, everyone’s face shapes are not created equal. Some faces are round, some are thin, some are soft, and some are angular.

Believe it or not, a hairstyle can help to accentuate or draw away from certain facial characteristics.

The following are tips on styles that can make the most of your particular features:

Face Too Round – Putting a side part in the hair will slim and lengthen a face that’s too round.

Thin Face – Curls or fullness at the sides will widen a long, thin face.
Large Nose – A full hairstyle or upswept crown makes the nose less noticeable.

Sharp, Angular Features – A wavy or curly hairstyle will soften a chiseled cheekbone, nose or jaw.

High forehead – A horizontal line of full bangs can cover the forehead, balancing the face.

Strong or Square Chin – A short cut with soft curls or fullness at the crown, takes attention away from the chin.

Narrow Chin – Long hair with fullness at the chin will balance a narrow chin.
Low Forehead – Vertical lines and soft fullness at the crown can lengthen the face.

Modern, Stylish Hairstyles for Women and Men

 

Like clothes and cars, hairstyles are constantly changing. A cut that was once the rage begins to look dated as a fresh, new hairstyle takes its place. Here are some of the most modern, latest hairstyles being spotted today.

Latest Hairstyles for Women

Women’s hairstyles are seeing a return to soft, feminine waves. Stiff, over-styled hair is out of fashion, and flowing, natural hair is currently in style. Stick straight hair has lost popularity in favor of the softer latest hairstyles. Gone are the days of the zigzag part. Today’s hair parts are simple, straight and right down the middle.

Long Hair

Long hair is one of the latest hairstyles for women. While shorter hair was the fashion for many years, celebrities have begun to wear hair longer and longer and women everywhere have taken note and are following the trend.

Long, smooth layers are also gaining popularity, in response to the trend for longer, softer hair. The cuts featuring short, choppy hair are no longer in style.

Ponytails are being seen everywhere this season, but not the teeny-bopper style ponytails perched high on the head. The latest hairstyles feature hair swept back into low ponytails.

Volume

Full hair with lots of volume is another one of the latest hairstyle trends for women. This look works for any type of hair: straight, curly, long or short.

Japanese Hair Straightening

For women who love the straight look, Japanese Hair Straightening is a chemical process that can turn the curliest locks into straight, silken tresses. This process has been gaining a good deal of popularity in recent years. Also known as Thermal Reconditioning, this process uses heat to straighten curly hair. Japanese Hair Straightening is currently quite costly, and while hair that has been straightened should stay straight, the process must be repeated as new, curly hair grows out.

Color

The latest hairstyles feature lustrous, dark colored hair. Highlights are still seen but have lost quite a bit of popularity, and the trend is moving towards hair dyed one color throughout.

Latest Hairstyles for Men

Just as women’s styles have shifted, men’s styles are also changing. Perhaps the most notable trend in the latest hairstyles is longer hair for men.

Longer Hair

While short styles have ruled for a while, longer hair is coming back for men. Men’s long styles should keep a slim silhouette, not full and bushy. In today’s men’s long hairstyles, the hair skims the shoulders and is worn back, not falling onto the face.

Longer Layers on Top

One of the latest hairstyles for men’s short hair is to cut the hair with longer layers on top and shorter layers at the sides and back of the head.

Retro

Just as retro clothing has gained popularity, seventies hairstyles are also making a comeback, with straight hair parted down the middle now being seen on men.

Color

Like women’s trends in haircolor, the latest hairstyles for men include dying the hair darker, with fewer highlights being seen.

A Guide To Balding Men’s Hairstyles

It’s unbelievable how difficult it is to find any decent information on the internet about balding men’s hairstyles.

You’ll know this yourself if you’ve ever tried to do a search on Google for ‘balding men’s hairstyles’, ‘hairstyles for balding men’, ‘balding hairstyles’ or any other amount of variations on the theme.

This is surprising considering how many balding men there are who deserve a decent hairstyle as much as any one else…

So… faced with this injustice I’ve put together my own guide to balding men’s hairstyles…

It’s a fact that 95% of all balding or bald men suffer from male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness usually starts with a receding hairline at the front and is frequently accompanied with thinning at the top.

Over time, this thinning turns into a full fledged bald spot, and the bald spot grows to cover the head, apart from the sides and around the back.

Regardless of this, as long as there is a single hair left on my head I’ll still demand a stylish coiffure. So, what balding hairstyle options are available?

The worst balding men’s hairstyle is the comb over. This is the classic look beloved of men of a certain age whereby the hair is grown longer on one side of the head and ‘combed over’ the bald area to the other side.

This strategy only spells disaster even in the slightest of breezes and is to be avoided at all costs.

But assuming you already know this, what are the other do’s and don’ts to balding men’s hairstyles?

The first common mistake is combing the hair straight back. This may cover bald spots, but it only exposes the forehead and draws attention to the receding hairline.

The second is growing your hair longer at the back to make up for what’s lacking on top. This unbalances the head and draws even more attention to the scalp and the baldness.

Younger men with thinning hair might be tempted to use gel… but this isn’t recommended. Gel clumps your hair together and reveals the scalp.

Likewise, growing your hair long in an attempt to cover up actually causes hair to separate and show more scalp.

So, what are the do’s?

Get more natural looking fluff to your hair by using mousses and conditioners.

Grow your remaining hair by a few inches, get it layered and brush it forward to break up the receding hairline.

If your hairline isn’t receding too badly, but the top of your head is thinning, you can get away with keeping the front long and combing your hair straight back to cover the bald spot.

Eventually however, your bald spot will expand.

The ultimate balding men’s hairstyle when faced with a shiny bald dome, is to go the whole hog and shave it off or at least a very close trim.

You’ll probably be amazed at people’s reactions and the compliments you’ll get – the shaved look is a totally acceptable balding hairstyle these days.

Start with electric clippers like you find in the barbers. After you’ve clipped the heavy stuff, lather up with shaving gel. This gives you a closer, smoother shave than shaving cream.

Then using a razor, start at the top and shave down with the grain taking care at the back – it’s recommended to watch what you’re doing with a small mirror.

Shaving your head only takes a few minutes and you don’t need to do it every day (two to three times a week is fine).

Taking care of your new shaved head is much like taking care of your face. Wash regularly with moisturizing soap, rather than a harsh deodorant soap that can dry out the skin on your head.

Also use a good quality moisturizer after every wash – cheaper moisturizers will just clog up your pores.

For the summer, find a moisturizer with a sun protection factor of at least 15 to avoid sunburn on your head. And you’ll need a warm hat in winter to maintain your body heat.

If shaving doesn’t tickle your fancy then you can always opt for a hairpiece as a last resort – though I wouldn’t recommend it 🙂
