4 Beginner-Friendly Styles for Hair Extensions

Hair extensions are the most in-demand products right now, and for all the right reasons. They allow you to instantly add length, volume, and thickness to your hair. And the best thing is that human hair wefts look entirely natural and are virtually undetectable, so much so that nobody can tell you’re wearing extensions. 

As soon as you get your hair extensions, one of the first thoughts that comes to mind is: What hairstyles can I wear with these? The answer is many. You can braid your extensions up for a more formal look or wear a low bun for an everyday style — or almost anything in between. Whatever your preference, hair extensions have you covered. 

Here are four beginner-friendly styles to rock with hair extensions:

1. Low Ponytail

Putting hair up with extensions can be tricky, but a low ponytail is easy to achieve with clip-in ponytail wefts. This hairstyle is perfect for those days when you just want to pull your hair back and go quickly. It’s also a great option if you’re looking to spice things up with some new color or texture in your mane. This hairstyle ensures that your hair stays put all day long while making you look stylish at the same time. 

To get this style, simply gather your hair at the nape of your neck and pull it into a ponytail. Use an elastic or hairband to secure the low ponytail. Now, clip your ponytail extension into the ponytail and cover the elastic with some hair strands. Tease the ponytail a bit for some extra oomph and volume. You’re now ready to rock a chic and adorable low ponytail!

2. Beach Waves

Beach waves are a great style to wear with clip-in extensions. But as a beginner, you must know how to use clip-in hair extensions to pull your hair into the perfect beach waves hairstyle. 

This hairstyle is easy to achieve with extensions, and it looks natural. The best part is that beach waves are the best way to blend and hide your extensions.

Start by putting clip-in extensions into your hair to get this hairstyle. Next, brush your hair together with the wefts with a loop-brush. Now, take a curling iron and wrap the hair around it while ensuring the temperature is minimum. 

To create the perfect waves, curl a mix of big and small hairpieces around the iron. The idea is to give your curls a messy, natural-looking effect. It’s also an excellent idea to swaddle the ends of your hair around the curling iron and pass over an inch or two. Doing so will make your hair look naturally wavy.    

3. Half-Up Top-Knot

This is yet another perfect, timeless, and versatile hairstyle to wear with hair extensions. When pulling your hair into a half-up top-knot with extensions, the most crucial factor to keep in mind is to ensure you have a layer of hair behind to hide the wefts. Otherwise, the wefts will be visible when you wear your hair up in a top knot. 

To achieve this hairstyle, apply your extensions and then pull your hair into a ponytail a few inches above the nape of your neck. Secure the pony with an elastic band, pull the hair into a messy bun, use bobby pins to hold the bun in place, and you’re good to go!

But remember that it’s easy to get this hairstyle with clip-in extensions because you can adjust the wefts whenever needed. You can achieve a half-up top-knot with tape-in extensions, but that can be pretty challenging if you’re wearing the wefts for the first time. 

4. Half-Up

This effortless and chic hairstyle is the perfect way to spice your look. It’s super easy for anyone new to hair extensions. The half-up will make you stand out when you have the right outfit to go with it. It is a fantastic and lovely everyday hairstyle that you can wear on any occasion and look stylish. 

To pull your hair into the half-up style, put your extensions into your hair and then take the hair from the upper area and gather it at the back while leaving a layer of hair behind to hide the wefts. That was super easy, wasn’t it?

You can even braid the hair that you gathered at the back. Or maybe you’d want to weave all of your hair or leave it straight and braid-less. No matter what you have in mind, you have many ways to play around with the half-up hairstyle.
