Using A Clip-in Pony for Valentine’s

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to unleash your inner hopeless romantic.

But of course, no Valentine’s outfit isn’t complete without the perfect hairstyle to go along with it. If you’re running late for this year’s date and you need to whip up something right now, here are five easy hairstyles using a clip-in pony for Valentine’s!

Using a Clip-In Pony for Valentine’s

1.   Sleek Look

In a hurry for your Valentine’s date? You can never go wrong with a long, sleek pony. Not only is it classy and neat, but it’s also a quick hairstyle that will have you heading out the door in just a few minutes.

To achieve this look, simply tie your natural hair in a ponytail using an elastic band. Next, wrap the Zala Hair Clip, Wrap and Go Ponytail Hair extension around the band. In just a few minutes, you’ve transformed yourself from plain jane to a classy diva.

2.   Carefree Ponytail

If you’re expecting a more casual date this year, a loose ponytail would be the perfect hairstyle for you. Think of it as the carefree version of the first hairstyle.

Amp it up by making it look shinier with Zala’s Keratin Ponytail Hair Extension. After attaching the hair extension to your natural hair, the next step is to tousle the strands a bit to give it that effortless and carefree vibe.

3.   Braided Ponytail

Have more time to spare before your date? Here’s a playful twist to the classic ponytail!

After attaching the ponytail hair extension, you can start braiding the strands. Since our hair extensions are made of 100% Human Remy Hair, you can do any braiding styles and techniques you want without worrying about the strands breaking off. Not only is it quick and easy, but it’s also classy and charming as well.

4.   Soft Glam

Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to get glammed up and showcase your femininity. And nothing screams sweetheart more than soft curls paired with dainty accessories. 

To achieve a soft glam look, simply curl the lower part of the ponytail extension using our Zala Cosmo Curling Wand. The bigger the curls, the softer and effortless they look. We assure you that this hairstyle will have your partner swooning over you for the rest of the night.

5.   Diva Delight

If you want an attention-grabbing yet sweet look for this Valentine’s, here’s the hairstyle for you. This hairstyle has the length, volume, and curls – what else can you ask for? 

To achieve this look, attach the Zala Hair Pony to your natural hair and then simply curl the entire length of the hair extension. It looks feminine and stylish–and the best part? You can do it in just a few minutes!

Grab that dress you’ve been keeping for a while, put on your favorite lipstick, and feel free to go live your dream date. But remember: don’t stress about it too much! You’re still beautiful no matter what look or hairstyle you go for, so just let yourself loose and enjoy the day of hearts!

Hair Extensions For Volume

Having longer hair means you can try out more gorgeous hairstyles. Sadly, even long hair can’t save you if your hair’s too thin or limp to hold up your hairdo well.

Nowadays, there are various hair treatments that you can undergo if you want to have long, flowing, voluminous hair. These treatments will give you more hair strands per hair follicle, which will give the appearance of thicker hair. However, not everyone’s lucky enough to undergo these treatments.

The perfect alternative? Using hair extensions for volume.

Using Hair Extensions for Volume

While hair extensions are mostly known to instantly extend your strands, they can also be worn to make your hair more voluminous. And if you’re unsure which hair extensions would be best for your #HairGoals, then this list is for you.

1. Clip-in Extensions

Widely used for many reasons, Clip-in Hair Extensions are usually the first choice when choosing hair extensions. They’re very easy to apply and remove, even if you decide to go the DIY route.

You only need half an hour of additional time to have bulkier and livelier hair. It’s also a great option for beginners since you don’t need much knowledge, time, and effort in order to get the job done.

2. Tape-in Extensions

As the name implies, Tape-in Extensions are hair extensions that use tapes to get attached to your hair. A thin strip of your hair is sandwiched in between two pieces of tape-in extensions and laid flat against your head and as close to the roots as possible.

Because tape-ins use adhesives, you can easily cut longer pieces to make them into shorter pieces, depending on where you want to apply them. This gives you enough flexibility when adding volume to your hair. They’re also much easier to hide since the tapes themselves lie flat on your scalp.

3. Halo Extensions

Halo Hair Extensions aren’t attached to your strands in any way. Instead, it sits on a very thin and almost invisible wire that you wear on your head like a headband. Also, it only takes a minute or two to wear. You can even hide the wire underneath the top section of your hair to make it completely unnoticeable.

However, unlike the other types of extensions on this list, halos offer limited customizability. If you have thinning hair on certain portions of your head, such as the top, you won’t be able to concentrate the additional volume on just that part.

4. Ponytail Extensions

Ponytail Hair Extensions, like the name implies, are made specifically for ponytail hairstyles. It’s a variant of the clip-in extensions that are perfect for clipping onto your own hair’s ponytail.

While the classic pony is a go-to hairstyle for many people, more volume would mean more life to your ponytail hairdo.

As you can see, there’s no need to worry about not having enough volume to pull of that dream hairstyle of yours. Thanks to hair extensions, you can instantly transform from drab to fab!

Halloween Hair: Modern Princess Belle Tutorial

We’re all familiar with the iconic half-up, half-down locks of the enchanting Princess Belle. With half of her brunette hair in a tousled updo and the remaining locks curled effortlessly, Princess Belle’s hairstyle is one of the most sought after looks if you’re going for that classic and ethereal aesthetic.

But are you ready to pump up this classic Disney hairstyle into a modern princess Belle look? Welcome to our Halloween Hair series, where we’ll provide a complete tutorial on how to achieve some of your favorite character hairstyles!

Ponytail As Old As Time

Short hair? We hear you! Even if you have short hair, you can still copy Princess Belle’s iconic hairstyle by using hair extensions!

There are thousands of hair extensions you can choose from, but for this look, we’ll be using our 16″ Ponytail Clip in Hair Extensions, which you can easily clip on to your natural ponytail.

Modern Princess Belle Hair Tutorial

Ready to see your prince? Here’s how to recreate the iconic Princess Belle hairstyle – with a modern twist!

1. Put your natural hair up into a ponytail

The first step is to put your natural hair up into a ponytail, preferably using a neutral-colored band like the one that comes with your Zala ponytail hair extension set. The location of the ponytail will depend on your preference, but if you want to fully get that modern Belle look, we recommend a high pony.

However, do remember to leave a few pieces on the front because these will serve as the stylized top of the hairstyle. Pro-tip: you don’t have to worry about this part if you have bangs.

2. Apply the ponytail hair extension

If you look at your Zala Ponytail Hair Extensions, you can see that it has a fabric mesh at the top with a comb attached to it. This is further lined with Velcro, to help in securing the hair extension to your natural hair. It also includes an extra section of hair to conceal any natural hair that’s peeking out, as well as the elastic band.

After putting your hair in a high ponytail, take the hair extensions and insert the comb, which is attached to the fabric mesh, in the hair tie. Once you can feel that the comb has been inserted, slowly put in the Velcro lining all around the band of your ponytail.

3. Style those front strands

You’ve taken care of the back part, now it’s time to focus on the front section! It wouldn’t be a Princess Belle hairdo without a styled updo. You’re ready to proceed to the next step if you have bangs but if you don’t, you can start styling the few pieces you left on the front.

There are several ways you can style the front pieces of your hair. You can curl them and pin parts of it to the side with a bobby pin. If the strands are short, you can just let them dangle effortlessly. The general rule is that it should be used to frame your face.

After that, take the extra section of hair from the hair extensions and wrap it around the ponytail. The set comes with a bobby pin which you can use to keep the extra section in place.

4. Curl the ends

Effortless locks are a signature style of Disney princesses. Princess Belle in particular has soft and romantic wavy hair, so if you want to achieve the same look, it would be best if you lightly curl your hair together with the ponytail extensions.

For the perfect curls, check out our 4-in-1 Zala Cosmo Curling Wand. It comes with four different barrels for different types of curls, and it’s guaranteed to give you long-lasting curls without harming your natural strands.

5. Accessorize

You already have Belle’s styled updo but it seems like something is missing. What could that be?

Well, it’s not a Princess Belle hairstyle without the iconic golden band at the top of her hair! Since you’re aiming for that modern princess look, you can amp up this classic Disney hairstyle by using a cute bow.

Just pin a silky, high-quality bow to the band of your ponytail or at the side of your head. This will immediately add an extra bit of edginess to your modern Disney Princess look.
