If you're wondering "how to wear halo hair extensions," congratulations, you've come the right place.
And you're asking the right questions about the RIGHT kind of hair extensions.
From clips to adhesives and endless salon visits often it seems the price of good hair is much too high and hard.
Seriously, ain't nobody got time for that.
Enter halo hair extensions.
You may have seen them on your insta feed or even in your dreams.
Because that's exactly what they give you, the long, luscious and low maintenance locks of your dreams.
And the best part?
They do all of this in seconds.
Sounds fake, I know.
But halo hair extensions can literally be applied in three simple steps and in under five minutes.
Before we get into how to wear halo hair extensions, let's talk prep.
There are few first steps you MUST take before you can get the most out of your halo hair extensions.
The first step when it comes to how to wear halo hair extensions is proper prep.
And I don't mean wash your hair and lather, rinse, repeat.
I mean prep your extensions.
But don't worry, I promise this is also extremely easy.
Firstly, fresh out of the box your halo has been chemically straightened.
This means it looks much, MUCH thinner than what it actually is.
So, how do you make your halo thicker?
Wet it and dry it.
Don't wash it.
Just wet it and dry it with a blow dryer or let it air dry overnight.
Wetting your halo before you wear it will cause it to literarily double in volume.
Secondly, cut it.
Halo hair extensions are designed to look as natural possible, so this means it should be cut and blended with your hair.
Or, the ends of your hair may need to be thinned out to blend better with the halo.
Either way we always recommend taking your halo with you to the salon to have it blended and cut perfectly to suit your hair.
And lastly, but most importantly, get the right halo for you.
Colour matching is crucial so make sure you seek the help of one of our professional stylists before you buy your shade.
Getting the right thickness is also a must.
The fine halo is made to be worn the same length as your locks and is purely to boost volume, whereas the medium halo gives you a touch of length and body.
Then there is the thick halo which is made for babes who want it all. So if you want a whole lotta body and extra length, the thick halo is probably for you.
Now that we know the halo hair golden rules, let's get into how to wear halo hair extensions so you can see just how easy it really is!
To make sure your halo hair extensions blend beautifully and look as natural as possible. Start by pulling the top section of your hair into a top knot. Leave two inch wide sections out at the front of your face.
Pulling your hair up before you place the halo is optional, but I find it helps a lot with blending the hair later on.
Place the halo on your head with the wire about an inch back from your forehead.
Push the back of the weft down so it sits firmly below your occipital bone. (This is the small bump your can feel at the back of you head.)
You may want to secure the hair in place using the detachable velcro clips - this is entirely up to you.
Take your top knot down so the top section of your hair covers the halo.
Using a tail comb pull pieces of hair over the halo and wire until it is completely covered.
Brush through the ends of your locks until the strands are blended.
Now that you have your halo in, let's talk styling.
The more hair you have, the more styles you have at your disposal!

Mermaid waves seem to be forever trending on Instagram and tbh, I ain't mad about it.
(Mermaids do traditionally summon men to deaths after all, so I'm all about that).
But, its surge in popularity is probably more to do with the fact it's an easy and low maintenance hairstyle that also looks cute AF.
