We're hair to help!

Not all halo hair extensions are made the same...

What I mean by this is;

We're meticulous about the quality of our Halo Hair Extensions.

We use ONLY the best quality hair and materials.

From ethical sources.

And we have strict quality assurance procedures to make sure every Halo we create is perfect.


Because we're building a lasting brand - not a fly-by-night business.

And to build a brand we have to build trust with our customers.

We have to earn your trust.


We can only speak for ourselves. We can't speak for everyone else in the market.

There are a lot of hair extension products available, as I'm sure you're aware.

Many of them are great. But equally, many of them are terrifyingly bad.

I'm not saying that you have to buy halo hair extensions from us. But just to be aware that not everyone is operating by the same standards.

10 Common Questions About Our Halo Hair Extensions:

In this article we're going to cover a lot of ground.

You'll get the answers to the following questions:

  • What's the Halo wire made of? Will it stretch or snap?
  • Can you see the wire when wearing the Halo Extension?
  • Is the Halo extension comfortable? Will I feel it?
  • Will the Halo Extension fall off?
  • What is the Halo extension made of? Is it real hair? Can I use hot tools to style the Halo Hair?
  • Can you do up dos, like ponytails, with the halo?
  • What's the difference between the FINE, MEDIUM and the THICK Halo?
  • How do I know which colour works best for me?
  • How do I put on the Halo Hair Extension?
  • Do I need to get the Halo Hair cut and blended? Can the Halo be coloured?

Let's dig in...

1. "What's the Halo wire made of? Will it stretch or snap?"

The wire we use to make our Halos is very strong.

It's made of industry grade clear nylon.

It's essentially fishing wire. Made to pull a heavy fish out of water.

So it can lift 5kg off the ground without stretching or snapping.

Yes, we've tried :)

And our heaviest Halo weighs 160g (0.16kg).

The ends of the wire that attach to the halo have been triple knotted.

So that it doesn't slip.

The Sitting Pretty Halo is super secure and easy to wear.

2. "Can you see the wire when wearing the Halo?"

Because the wire is clear it's VERY hard (almost impossible) for anyone to see.

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make sure your halo wire is absolutely hidden.

3. "Is the Halo Extension comfortable? Will I feel it?"

No, it's not heavy.

The weight of the Sitting Pretty Halo is evenly distributed across the crown of your head.

Which makes it feel very light and super comfortable.

There are no heavy clips or anything else that pulls on your hair either.

Most of our customers say that they forget they're even wearing their SP Halo at all!

Here's a video of Hannah, one of our beautiful customers giving the Sitting Pretty Halo a rave review:


4. "Will the Halo Extension fall off?"

This is a question we get a lot.

And the answer :)

The SP Halo is designed to sit on such an angle on your head (see the video below) that it's wedged on firmly.

The Halo basically tucks under your occipital bone, which is the bone at the back of your head.

And the wire sits about an inch away from your hairline at the front.

This creates the wedging effect that holds the halo in place on your head.

Your own hair then sits on top of your halo and keeps it in place.

Of course;

If you're reckless with your halo then there is a possibility that it could fall off.

Although we're yet to see that :)

Here's a video which explains exactly how to put on the halo and why the Halo Extension doesn't fall off:

5. "What is the Halo Extension made of? Is it real hair? Can I use hot tools with the Halo Hair?"

Unfortunately, we can't speak for all halo manufacturers in the market.

And as many of the people who are reading this will have experienced;

Sometimes the hair you get isn't even real hair.

We've heard the craziest stories.

Someone even told us they received Yak hair... I know right!!

At Sitting Pretty we absolutely assure you that what you get is real hair.

The Sitting Pretty Halo is made of 100% Real Human Remy Hair - European Texture.

Which means it's soft and long-lasting.

The best way to experience this for yourself is when you receive your halo just feel how soft and strong it feels.

You will also experience the quality of it from how long it lasts.

The Sitting Pretty Halo will last between 6-12 months in good care.

Sometimes even longer.

Our halo is made from high quality, durable materials. They're manufactured to strict QA guidelines.

We know we're not the cheapest (and we're far from the dearest).

Our Halo is incredible value for money.

We stand by our product and provide a 30 day exchange guarantee.

We hope this empowers you as the consumer to ensure you get the right colour!

And even though we provide this guarantee only a very, very small fraction of our customers will ever return their halo for exchange.

Picking your colour is easy. Watch the video below:


The second part of the question was; "can you use hot tools with the Sitting Pretty Halo":

Yes you definitely can.

Because Sitting Pretty Halos are made with real hair of incredible quality you can pretty much treat it the same way you treat your own hair.

Here's a video where I show you how to put curls in the Sitting Pretty Halo:

6. "Can you do up dos, like ponytails, with Halo Hair?"

Hell yeah you can!

Take a look at this video I did with Chantelle Price.

Here we show you how to put the Sitting Pretty halo in a ponytail.

7. "What's the difference between the FINE, MEDIUM and THICK Halo?"

FINE, MEDIUM and THICK refers to the 3 different thicknesses we offer.

So before comparing their differences...

...let's start with what's the same :)

These are the characteristics that our 3 different thicknesses have in common:

  • They're all 20 inches long
  • Each of our thicknesses come in the same colour range
  • They're all 100% remy human hair

The only difference between the three is the thickness.

Our FINE Halo Hair Extension:

The FINE Halo is 60 grams of 100% Remy Hair.

It's designed for girls with quite fine hair who want more volume.

If you have VERY, VERY fine hair you can use the FINE Halo to get some extra length as well.

Our MEDIUM Halo Hair Extension:

The MEDIUM Halo is 100 grams of 100% Remy Hair.

It's designed for women with thin-to-regular hair who want both volume AND length.

And because the MEDIUM Halo has more volume you can keep it longer.

Our THICK Halo Hair Extension:

The THICK Halo is 160 grams of 100% Remy Hair.

It's the same thickness as the FINE and MEDIUM Halo combined.

And it works best for girls who have medium-to-thick hair who want A LOT of hair!

It adds length and volume, and buckets of both.

Here's a video showing you the difference, and how to choose the right thickness for you:


8. "How do I know which halo colour works best for me?"

Some people can just tell.

Others will take a punt (and they're normally right).

But in some instances you just need to ask :)

If you're not sure about which colour you are just send us an email:

  • To hello(at)sittingprettyhalohair(dot)com.
  • Include 2-3 pics of your current hair in good light, ideally taken from the front, side and back.
  • Ensure the full length of your hair is in the photos.
  • Tell us what you're trying to achieve; length and volume, or just volume.

You should expect to hear back from us within 24 hours (Mon-Sat).

We'll be able to tell you which colour is going to be your best match.

We'll also let you know which weight (FINE, MEDIUM or THICK) will work best based on what you're trying to achieve.

And we'll be able to tell you if there is any work that you might need to do to make the halo work for you.

Keep in mind that if you aren't happy with your Halo colour you 30 days to exchange it.

So there's really no risk!

Here's a video with some handy tips for choosing the right colour halo:

9. "How do you put on the halo hair extension?"

This is a common question...

Because the Halo is a pretty foreign concept to most people.

It's pretty new.

But once you have one yourself you'll realise how easy it is to use.

We find this is always the case.

Here's a video that shows how to put on the Halo Extension:

10. "Do I need to get the Halo Hair cut and blended? Can the Halo be coloured?"

The short answer... "It depends."

Some girls will receive their Halo Extension and can start wearing it right away.

But that's not always the case.

It really depends on what your own hair, and what it currently looks like.

If you've got blunt ends;

Then they'll need to be softened/feathered to make sure the Halo blends.

If your hair is really short;

You'll need to take quite a bit of length off the Halo Hair and layer the hell out of it so that it blends.

In many cases you'll need to have the Halo layered to blend as well.

If you do need to get some work done any hairdresser can do it.

Because cutting the halo is easy.

Here's a video showing you how to cut the Halo Hair so that it blends:


The second part of this question was; "Can the Sitting Pretty halo be coloured?"

And the answer is yes, our halo hair extension can be coloured.

Because we use only high quality hair our Halos take really well to colouring.

The only thing you should try to keep in mind is;

Just like any hair extension, the halo hair has been highly processed.

So it's best not to colour them too often.


You should avoid bleaching them (colouring from dark to blonde).

Bleach can cause irreversible damage.

If you do decide to colour them;

Try to only colour them a few shades darker.

Hi Debbie, thanks for your comment. I understand what you mean.

Our Halo is designed to work for almost all hair types. The only two types that can be challenging are blunt hairstyles (it can be challenging to make the halo blend) and also super fine hair types.

By 'super fine' I mean very, very fine. And the issue is that if the hair is too fine then you will be able to see the halo weft through your hair. Most girls are not like this though. And most very fine haired girls will be able to use our halos with great results.

Here's an example of one of our lovely customers with fine hair where our halo extension has given her thicker, longer hair and looks totally natural:

Also jump over to our before and after page:
And take a look at the FINE halos. These girls all have very fine hair.

And lastly; if you're still unsure of whether the halo is right for you, head over to this form
Complete this form and our team will get back to you within a few minutes to let you know (a) if the halo will work for you, and (b) which halo you should get (thickness and colour).

Hope this helps!

Hi I have watched the videos and read through the literature, however, my hair is considerably thinner than the girls on the videos. Do you have any videos of anyone who has very fine thin hair? I do have long hair but just mega thin.
