Achieving a natural and flawless look with hair extensions is all about the art of blending. Whether you’re after more length, bigger volume, or even a full-on transformation, properly blending your extensions with your natural hair is essential.
In our comprehensive guide, we shed light on the expert tips and techniques to help you achieve a natural and undetectable finish. Get ready for glam!
Choosing the most natural-looking hair extensions
When it comes to achieving a natural look, choosing the right hair extensions is crucial. Look for extensions made from high-quality, natural remy human hair. We offer a colour matching service via Instagram and email, or you can use a colour ring to identify the right colour for a seamless blend.
Whether you have fine hair or natural volume, it’s important to invest time and attention into finding the extensions that most resemble your current colour.
How to style hair extensions for a natural look
Prep your natural hair
Start by washing and conditioning your natural hair, ensuring it's clean and well-moisturised. This will create a solid foundation for blending the extensions. Use a gentle cleansing shampoo and hydrating conditioner specifically made for extensions.
Select the right extensions
Whether they’re clip-ins, tapes or halo extensions, it’s important to choose extensions that match your current hair colour to ensure a seamless blend.
If you have highlighted or balayage hair, consider extensions that mimic those colours for a more natural and dimensional look.
We offer colour matching services via email and Instagram DM – just send us a few photos of your hair in natural lighting and we’ll help you find your perfect match.
Section and clip
Section your hair into manageable sections using clips or hair ties. This will help you work with smaller sections at a time, ensuring even distribution of the extensions.
Halo extensions are the simplest of all – all you need to do is part a circular section around your crown.
For clip-ins and tape extensions, start sectioning from the bottom, close to the nape of your neck. Gradually work your way up, layering the extensions for a natural-looking blend. For tape-in extensions, part your hair horizontally and apply the adhesive tape near the roots, sandwiching your natural hair in between.
Blend and style
Once the extensions are securely clipped in or taped, blend them with your natural hair by gently combing and styling both together. Use a wide-toothed comb or a brush specifically designed for extensions to avoid tugging or pulling.
Begin at the ends and work your way up, gradually incorporating the extensions into your natural hair. Style your hair as desired, ensuring the extensions seamlessly integrate with your natural locks. You can curl, straighten, or add waves – the styling possibilities are endless.
Tips for a natural-looking result:
A professional cut is key
The fastest way to take your extensions from zero to hero is to have a professional cut them in order to match the length and layers of your natural hair. This will help create a seamless transition and prevent any visible lines.
Use the right products
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – make sure to use hair care products specific designed for extensions.
Hydration is key; as extensions don’t receive natural hydration from oils travelling down from your scalp, you need to keep them moisturised with products like leave-in serums and a rich hair mask every now and then.
Avoid excessive heat styling to prevent damage to both your natural hair and the extensions. Opt for lower heat settings and limit the frequency of heat styling to maintain the longevity of your extensions.
Make sure to maintain
Regularly brush and maintain your extensions to keep them tangle-free and looking their best. Use a loop brush, detangling brush, or a wide-toothed comb to gently detangle the extensions, starting from the ends and working your way up. Brush your hair and extensions regularly to prevent tangling and maintain that smooth and natural look you’ve lusted after!
Where to Buy Natural-Looking Hair Extensions
When you want extensions that look natural, it doesn’t get better than 100% remy human hair. This is human hair that has been collected in a specific way to keep the cuticle intact, meaning it looks and behaves just like your natural hair.
Angel Extensions offer a wide range of 100% remy human hair extensions in different styles, colours, and lengths, so you’re sure to find your perfect match.
We also offer free colour matching via email or Instagram DM – just send us a few photos of your hair in natural lighting.
If remy hair extensions don’t fit your budget, synthetic fibre extensions can be a good option too. While nothing compares to remy hair, we offer a variety of synthetic ponytail extensions that are easy to apply, look similar to natural hair, and are a great, low-cost option – the perfect starting point if you’re still deciding whether extensions are for you.
Just remember, not all synthetic extensions are created equal, so choose a reputable brand.
