Improving Your Personal Appearance

How much time do you put into the way you look every day? While this number is different for everyone, investing some time into your appearance can really help you to go out into the world more confidently and feel better about yourself. I started going to spas and salons a few months back, and it was really nifty to see how many services they offered that could really improve my life. I decided that it would be incredible to work with other people to teach them about spas and salons, since they can make you feel renewed and refreshed.

4 Fun Things To Try With Hair Extensions

Lena Griffin

It can take years to grow out your hair, but fortunately you don't have to wait that long. Hair extensions can offer you extra length and volume instantly. Here are four fun ways you can change up your look with hair extensions:

1. Enjoy long, luxurious hair.

Long hair is very feminine and sexy. It requires very little effort in order to look beautiful. Loose, flowing locks can look good on anyone. If you want long hair for an event, you can achieve the look you crave with hair extensions. Choose hair extensions that closely match your hair color and clip them strategically beneath your hair. If you have layered hair, that will help to disguise the appearance of the extensions.

2. Increase your volume.

Straight hair is highly sought after for its versatility, but it comes with the downside of a lack of volume. If you find yourself wishing for thick, voluminous hair, extensions can help you. Hair extensions aren't only good for increasing your hair's length, they can also give the illusion of fullness. Simply clip the hair extensions under your hair anywhere you want increased volume. For even more volume, you can crimp your roots with a crimping iron and spray a little dry shampoo along your hairline to help your hair stand up.

3. Play with updos.

Nothing is more elegant than a well-executed updo. However, the the most elaborate updos require quite a lot of hair. If your hair isn't quite long enough for the hair styles you want to try, you can utilize hair extensions to supplement your natural locks. Try a classy chignon or a fun and flirty fishtail braid.

4. Try funky-colored highlights.

Fashion colors have never been more in style. Even celebrities can be seen rocking fun colors like blue, pink, and green. Colorful highlights are a great way to spice up your look before a concert or another evening event, but dying your hair can be quite a commitment. Fortunately, hair extensions can be dyed in lieu of your natural hair. If you plan to dye your extensions, look for virgin hair extensions. Synthetic extensions won't hold dye as easily. Blonde hair extensions can be dyed directly, while darker hair extensions will need to be bleached first. Once you've crafted the extensions to your liking, you can reuse them again and again, as long as you take care of them and store them properly.
