In this blog post I want to share with you some simple but effective tips to help you maximise your success with the Halo Hair Extension.
I'll share 5 tips that I've learned over the years from working hands on with the Halo. Like how to double or triple the volume/thickness of your halo. And how to colour your halo. And more.
To check that the colour matches you need to first take the Halo out of it's packaging. Then hold it under your natural hair and check that your own ends work with the colour of the Halo. Try it under different lights.
Your Halo always sits under your natural hair so all you need to do is make sure your that your ends blend with the colour of the Halo.
Even though the ends of your hair might not be the exact same colour as your Halo it won't be noticeable. Because once your Halo is sitting underneath your natural hair, cut and styled, a shade or two different will still blend beautifully.
Because we use only the highest quality hair (100% Real Human Remy Hair, European Texture) it's soft, long lasting and, just like your own hair, it takes well to colouring.
You can tone it ashy or warmer, and even a few shades darker if you need to.
BUTTTT... don't bleach it, and avoid colouring it too often to make it last longer. Also, extreme changes in colour is not recommended (e.g. platinum blonde to dark brown).
Here's a quick video on How To Colour The Sitting Pretty Halo:
If you're not sure how to colour hair or if you haven't done it before, speak to your hairdresser first. Or better yet, ask your hairdresser to do it for you!
The easiest way to explain how you put on the Sitting Pretty Halo is by sharing this video with you:
The Halo comes with 7 different sized wires (XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL). You'll find these in the box with your Halo. Your Halo comes with the small wire on by default.
If you're finding that the Halo pops off your head when you try to put it on it's because the wire is too small for you. Try putting on one of the larger sized wires.
If it feels too loose then you'll just need to swap the wire for one of the smaller sized wires.
Play around with changing the wires for a few minutes to find the fit that feels most secure and comfortable to you.
There's no right or wrong here. It just comes down to your preference. Some people prefer it tight on their head, and others like it to hang loosely. Just find what works best for you.

Your Halo Sitting Pretty has been industrially straightened. Which is fine. But it means it might feel a bit thin when you receive it.
Don't worry though. Because just like normal hair, when you wet it it'll get much thicker.
You don't need to wash it though. Just give it a quick spray with clean water. Then dry it off with a blow dryer. This will usually make it double in thickness.
It'll also get thicker over time as you use it.
When you receive your Halo it'll be 20 inches long.
For most girls...this is very long. Too long.
So chances are that you'll want to have it cut shorter and then layered to blend with your own hair. This is the same with all hair extensions.
We recommend you take it to your hairdresser to cut for you.
