The Benefits of Clip In Hair Extensions

If you’re not sure if you can commit to the long term maintenance and cost of hair extensions, using clip-in extensions are the way to go. It’s a less expensive route to take in order to determine if hair extensions would work for your current hairstyle, hair condition and even lifestyle. The best part is that clip in hair extensions will allow you to enjoy the beauty of heat fusion, cold fusion, sewn-in and all other types of thorough hair extensions that you can remove and put back anytime.

How to Create a High, Sleek Ponytail

A high, super sleek ponytail works best with a clean and straight hair. If you have wavy hair, use a flat iron to straighten it. Brush back your hair following the natural hollows of your cheekbone. Be careful when pulling the hair because pulling it too tight can lead to breakage. Gather your high ponytail with a transparent elastic band. Finish the hairstyle by wrapping a section of hair from the ponytail around its base and secure with a bobby pin. Douse a toothbrush with a medium-hold hairspray and brush it along the hairline to manage the flyaways.

Hair Myth: Using the same shampoo and conditioner for a long period of time will make your hair become “immune” to them

The hair has no way of knowing if you’re using the same or different products on it. Technically, the hair is not alive so it can’t acquire tolerance to a particular shampoo or any hair product. The reason why we sometimes feel that our hair care products are no longer working is because of possible product or chemical build-up on the hair shaft and scalp. Make it a habit to use a clarifying shampoo at least every two weeks to ensure that no impurities will remain to dull the hair.

To further emanate the edgy appeal of the hair look, the models’ makeup accented the cheeks and eye area by creating full, strong brows  and by sculpting the cheeks and jawline. The lips and eyelids were bare while the skin were simply moisturized.
