5 Quick-Fix Easy Hairstyles Using Halo Hair Extensions

By popular demand, I've put together my favorite hair tutorials using the Sitting Pretty Halo.

At Sitting Pretty, we believe in less time spent in front of the mirror and more time spent enjoying your day-to-day. 

The added benefit is hairstyles are also much quicker with the halo.

So you can spend more time indulging in your morning coffee before work...

Or dancing around your room before a night out. 

What makes a hairstyle so much quicker with the halo, you ask? 

It removes the task of magically trying to make your fine or thin hair thicker with texturizing and volumizing products.

Think about it;

You can throw your hair in a ponytail without half an hour spent trying to tease it and create more volume.

Or you can create an updo that doesn't keep falling out mid-styling. 

These five hairstyle tutorials show you how easy it is to create immaculate hairstyles with your Sitting Pretty Halo.

 

Easy Hairstyle #1: The Voluminous Ponytail

Step 1: Select a top section of hair, beginning 2 inches from your forehead. Twist this hair into a clip. This will be the hair that sits over the halo. 

Step 2: Apply your Sitting Pretty Halo and release your hair on top of the halo. Comb with your Sitting Pretty fine-tooth comb to blend the top of your hair with the halo.

Step 3: Leave a small section of hair around the front of your head, then select the rest of your hair into a ponytail. 

Optional: If you like more volume at the back of your hair, you can gently tease underneath the top sections of your real hair before creating the ponytail. 

Step 4: Tie into a low-mid ponytail.

Step 5: Grab the top section of the ponytail and tease underneath to create more height in your ponytail. 

Step 6: Grab a small section of your halo and wrap it around your hair elastic to cover it. Secure with a bobby pin underneath your ponytail.

Easy Hairstyle #2: The Princess Jasmine Ponytail

Another great ponytail variation is the Princess Jasmine inspired bubble ponytail.

Step 1: Straighten your Sitting Pretty Halo. Make sure to always apply a heat protectant spray before heat styling your halo.

Step 2: Straighten your own hair. 

Step 3: Apply your Sitting Pretty Halo.

Step 4: Tie your hair into a smooth, sleek ponytail, leaving some hair around your face.

Step 5: Using small elastic hair ties (the really small ones that only go around your hair once) tie a second elastic a quarter down your ponytail. Gently tug at the hair between the two ponytails to make it look thicker. 

Step 6: Repeat the previous step until you've got 3-4 sections of hair down your ponytail.

Easy Hairstyle #3: The Twisted Knot Half Updo

 Step 1: Beginning 2 inches from your forehead, select half your hair and twist it up on top of your head. 

Tip: For half updos using the Sitting Pretty Halo, it's important to have enough hair sitting on top to use for both the half updo and the remaining hair that hides the halo.

Step 2: Using a 32mm - 38mm barrel, curl your hair in sections, alternating the direction of the curl each time. 

Step 3: Once the curls cool down, uses a wide-tooth comb to gently comb out and separate the curls. 

Step 4: Leave your fringe or some hair around the front of your face, then separate two small sections of hair; one section on the left side of your head and one on the right. These are the sections that you will use to create your knot.

Step 5: Leaving those two sections aside, collect the rest of the hair between the two sections and pull them into the middle, securing with bobby pins. This will keep the hair beneath the knot in place, and also create some volume at the top of your hair.

Step 6: Grab the left and write sections of hair and bring them to the center of the back of your head, then tie the sections into a loose knot.

Step 7: Use bobby pins to secure the hair in the knot, and gently tug at the knot to make it look thick and even.

Step 8: Spray your knot with a flexible hold spray to secure the style.

Easy Hairstyle #4: Bejewelled Accessories

If you prefer wearing your hair down, hair accessories are a fun way to change up your hairstyle. 

For this look, all you need is some bejeweled hairpins and gold bobby pins.

Step 1: Apply your Sitting Pretty Halo.

Step 2: On the left side of your head, leave a small section of hair around your face, then pull a section of hair from the front of your head towards the back.

Step 3: Using gold bobby pins, secure the section of hair towards your head. Apply the bobby pins in a criss-cross method so that the bobby pins are in an X pattern across your head.

Step 4: When you reach the center of the back of your head, leave the left section and repeat Step 2 and Step 3 with the right section of hair.

Step 5: Adjust any bobby pins as necessary so the left and right sections of hair evenly meet in the middle.

Step 6: Select your bejeweled hairpins, and randomly place them above or below the crosses you made with your bobby pins.

Easy Hairstyle #5: A Simple Half Updo

Step 1: Apply your Sitting Pretty Halo. Use the fine-tooth comb to make sure no hair is stuck underneath the halo wire.

Step 2: Select a third of your hair to tie into a ponytail at the top of your head. You may like to use the ends of your eyebrows to guide you on where to start the section of hair from because where your eyebrows end is usually just above where your halo will sit (although this also depends on your head shape).

Step 3: Grab your fine-tooth comb, and use the metal tip to gently pull a little more hair down to cover the sides of the halo.

Step 4: Then use your comb to gently comb back your hair, leaving the top of your hair smooth. When doing this, be careful not to dig the comb too deep and lift the halo wire.

Step 5: Tie the selected section of hair into a ponytail on top of your head. You want to make sure the ponytail is quite high. 

Step 6: Pull the ponytail so it's tight at the base to keep the ponytail sitting high and perky.

Step 7: Select a small section of hair from your ponytail, spray with texturizing spray and wrap around the elastic band of your ponytail.
