Hello Ladies,

Good brushes in make-up can make or ruin our face. The right brush can make us look like a million dollars. We always look for the best make up brushes in the market. When it comes to hair, pretty much the same rule applies.

But we randomly tend to pick up brushes for hair without giving it much thought. Sometimes we like the colour or the design or sometimes an attractive package or offer is the main buying criteria. It’s time we actually think about our hair type, the uses of the brush and give a thought before buying a hair brush.

While we are in love with our curling irons and tongs the good old hairbrush gets  pushed into the background. But their importance is felt everyday even if we are not styling our hair. Read on to find out why we need different types of brushes for a single head of hair.

Choosing the right hair brush and using it correctly can make all the difference in getting the right hair result whether its de-tangling or massaging the scalp. There are so many different kinds of brushes on the market…it’s kind of confusing. There is not much literature on the specific uses of each brush. Unless you are a hairstylist or hair dressers you tend to be clueless regarding the range of combs and brushes you are faced with in a beauty store or online.

Finding the right hair comb / brush may sound like an daunting task for some, but because this is one tool you’re expected to use every single day, making the switch just might be one of the biggest favours you’ll ever do for your hair. Going beyond just simply brushing your hair, using the best brush for your hair type is guaranteed to cause less breakage, prevent bad hair days, and deliver the ultimate look.

It may seem pretty simple, but finding the best brush for you can be a pretty demanding task—after all, there are so many to choose from! And of course, just like your arsenal of makeup brushes, you’re definitely going to need more than just one hairbrush.

Whether you’re looking to highlight your natural waves, detangle those stubborn knots or achieve the ultimate blow dry, scroll through our hairbrush list to help you find what brush you need to fit your need.

A must-have basic list of 6 brushes / combs for you.

 

  1. WIDE TOOTH COMB

Used mainly for  : DE-TANGLING WET / DRY HAIR

A MUST-HAVE comb FOR EVERYONE. This essential comb is perfect for detangling hair while it is still wet. Its gentle on the hair and does not break it.

Did you know that a Wide Tooth Comb is perfect for the application of a hair mask also. It coats the mask evenly onto the hair shaft and makes it more effective. It massages the scalp and improves blood circulation. Makes hair more manageable and smoother.

The wide-tooth comb is most important for detangling wet hair gently.

 

  1. PADDLE BRUSH

Used mainly for : BRUSHING OUT LONG HAIR / REMOVING KNOTS

Paddle brushes usually have bristles coming out of a soft cushion and are great for massaging the scalp, de-tangling, and smoothing naturally straight hair. The air-filled rubber cushion is designed to bend with your scalp to minimize damage from pulling.

A wide paddle brush is perfect for taming unruly hair of any length. Use it to blow dry your hair out quicker by sectioning and running the dryer over the brush root to end. You can use it for de-tangling as well—wet or dry.

  1. RAT TAIL COMB OR TAIL COMB

Used mainly for : PARTING HAIR INTO SECTIONS

It is a comb for the hair having a narrow, pointed handle used mainly while dividing the hair into neat and clean sections while cutting or styling the hair.

Also funnily known as the rat-tail comb, this comb is known for its long thin handle. This type of comb is more of a styling comb mainly used for people with longer hair. The tail of the comb is used for separating, straightening, and sectioning the hair for different styling processes.

These are commonly found in salons and as part of a professional hairstylists kit. Such combs usually have handles in plastic or metal. Simply put, this petite tool is crucial in hair-styling and its structure makes a difference to your style and hair texture, within minutes.

  1. ROUND BRUSH

Used mainly for : BLOW OUT / BLOW DRY / CURLING

Round brushes are ideal for creating that volume and body in your hair. This is the brush you want to use when you are blow-drying your hair. Small size brushes create tighter curls, while brushes with larger barrels are known to straighten hair and create subtle waves. With the right size of round brush and a little bit of practice and patience , you can achieve a a great curl at home. Typically, round brushes are made with a metal or iconic barrel which heat up when used with a blow dryer (it works pretty much like a curling wand). The round brush helps tame frizz and delivers the desired amount of bounce to your hair.

If you have fine to normal hair, we don’t recommend using a round brush with a metal or ionic barrel, as it may cause severe heat damage to already weak ends.

Instead, we suggest trying something more gentle like a mixed bristle or natural boar round brush. Round brushes are ideal for creating that volume and body in your hair. This is the brush you want to use when you are blow-drying your hair.

 

  1. TEASING BRUSH

Used mainly for : CREATING VOLUME / BACK COMBING

Using a teasing brush is the easiest way to lift your roots to create the illusion of fullness. This brush is perfect for teasing your hair and creating texture to support your lovely up-dos, adding texture to ponytails, or create a base at the roots when clipping in hair extensions. Bonus points for having a point-ended handle, which can be used for sectioning the hair perfectly!

Keep in mind, you shouldn’t be teasing your hair too often as this process can be a bit harsh on your hair. Try to avoid this brush if your hair is very fine or fragile.

 

  1. LOOPER BRUSH

Used mainly for : BRUSHING HAIR EXTENSIONS AND WIGS

 

If you wear hair extensions, the looper brush is a must-have. This brush features unique looped bristles that allow the brush to glide easily over wefts without getting caught, or pulling them out. Looper brushes are not only great for brushing hair while you have your clip on extensions , tape-ins or micro ring loops installed in with no damage or pulling.

Remember, finding products that are right for your hair type can make a world of difference. Try these different kinds of hair brushes out and see how you can transform your hair!

 

Some good brands that we would recommend and which are easily available on amazon.in Filpkart.com and Nykaa.com are

Mildly priced : Roots, Vega, Gubb USA, Toniq

Highly priced : Ikonic, Spornette, Woolsy, Tangle Teezer, Body Shop

Dear ladies,

The lockdown is taking its own time to end. I hope all of you are safe and well at home. We are in a situation which we never ever thought in our wildest dreams. Its been almost 2 months in lockdown mode and the world is still searching for an answer, a vaccine to save us from the dreaded Corona virus. The important thing we need to remember is that “we are in it together” and help and support each other in this difficult time.

We all have our own duties to carry on though we are at home. Some of us are working from home and some cannot. Some of us are covid-19 warriors and working to save the human race.

In the midst of all the choas to get some amount of structure and sanity to our lives I am sure we all have made our own to-do list or time organiser. And hopefully washing your hair extensions may just be one of them. That brings me to our favourite topic – Hair extensions – our pride, our most valuable possession.

Let me help you with a few do’s and don’ts about taking care of hair extensions so that they will last for a long long time.

Before moving ahead to tricks and tips of hair extensions I would like to give you some glimpse about extensions…..

Extensions are at your rescue if you want instant length or volume to your hair. Have you ever wondered how can an actor in a movie get different hairstyles some of the time long hair sometimes short hair? For instance, Deepika Padukone sported lovely long hair in her role of Mastani in the movie Bajirao Mastani. It wasn’t possible to grow her hair so long. Real hair extensions to the rescue. Remy hair extensions are the best quality extensions you can find. Because they blend into the hair so well.

Extensions and Wigs are secret behind all celebrity looks. Be it female actors or male, the hair they portray on screen has to be customized to suit the role. Everyone knows how Rajnikanth looks in real life. And on screen he portrays a super hero persona with a beautiful full hair wig which he likes to swish in his acts. The magic is wigs and men’s hair patch or men’s hair system which is worn to add volume. The hair is styled and cut to blend into the natural hair of the actor. Don’t worry these extensions and wigs are not limited to actors and actresses. It is very much within the reach of the common man. Happie Hair introduces reasonably priced human hair extensions which are available over the counter. Our special team of Hair extensions experts will guide you and help you to buy the perfect extensions suited for your personality and style.

 

Some people say that extensions are expensive. But trust me they are worth it… Make sure to take care of your extensions just like you do to your real hair and they will last you for years!!!!

I am listing a few Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) about hair extensions

  1. How to wash your extensions?

NEVER wash your hair when you are wearing clip -in extensions. Unclip the extensions from your hair and then wash them.

Gently brush them before washing so that they are tangle free. Hold the hair extensions under running tap. Grab some shampoo on your palms and apply it gently on your extension. Don’t rub or scrub it. While washing, run your fingers through each strand, making sure there’s no excess shampoo remaining.

Always use sulfate-free and alcohol-free shampoo and conditioner! Avoid washing it with hot water. Either wash it with cold or lukewarm water. This is because hot water results in taking away essential oils and moisture from the extensions. Apply conditioner and keep it for about half an hour (if you have the time) and then rinse the extensions in cold water to seal the moisture.

 

  1. Do’s and Don’t’s after washing the extension!

If you want to increase the life span of your hair extensions avoid blow

drying it. Let it Air Dry!

While styling your extensions set the temperature to 180° to avoid smoking them out.

Never wear your clip in’s while sleeping & swimming. The chlorine in the swimming pool may damage the hair. It is advisable to remove the clip ons while you sleep because it will tug on your natural hair and damage the roots. So even though you are very tired after a party or function please take a few minutes to remove the extensions, brush them and store them in the Happie Hair Box. If there is sweat or grime on the extensions, keep the box open to air dry them.

 

In case you are using planning to blow dry them, use low heat setting while blowdrying. Apply some leave-in serum like Livon or Loreal serum to keep the hair fragrant and soft.

 

 

2. About colouring the hair extensions!

If you are bored with the same look of your hair extensions you can get them colored. As Happy hair Extensions are made of real hair you can always style, wash, color it. You can add highlights or balayage them. You can also add some funky colour like burgundy or purple….maybe electric blue hair colour. There are many hair colours available like Pulp Riot , Manic Panic to name a few. Of course you need to prelighten the hair to be able to get the right colour you want. Mostly Happie Hair colour is natural black or natural dark brown. So prelightening is required to get the correct shade of red, pink or blue hair. If you are not sure about the colouring process make sure to get them colored from a professional hair colourist. We at Happie Hair Studio provide colouring services for our own hair extensions. We would gladly do the needful and give you.

  1. How to wear & brush

Open all the clips & make a partition in your hair. Install the clips one by one & overlap your hair on it.

If you are wearing a clip-in set of 4 pieces then you need to add the extensions in layers at the back of the head and then on the sides of the head. Then brush your hair gently while holding the clips with the other hand to avoid pulling. Please watch our videos on Facebook and Instagram for the same. Avoid styling the extensions when they are clipped into your hair. Always style the extensions on a table or a holder. Style your hair and then you can clip on the extensions.

www.facebook.com/happiehair

www.instagram.com/happiehair_official

 

While brushing your hair hold the extensions & brush in the downward direction. Ideally start brushing at the bottom of the hair and gently go upwards while you detangle the hair make it ready to wear. A paddle brush with soft bristles is recommended to brush the hair. Never use a comb.

  1. Storage of the hair extensions

Your Happie Hair extensions come in a beautiful red box with a magnetic closing flap.

Always make sure to close the clips after use & store the extensions in the box.

They will remain clean & tangle free!

While travelling we suggest that you use a zip lock pouch or a travel pouch to carry the extensions if carrying the box is not possible. It will save precious luggage space and keep it handy to use.

  1. Do not use DIY Hair mask on the extensions.

Keep them soft and shiny by using a serum or a leave in hair conditioner.

Some lifesaver tips just for you all-

  1. While styling your extensions use a heat protectant!
  2. If you are using hairsprays on extensions make sure to wash it immediately after use!

So now I know you are equipped with all there is to know about Do’s and Don’t’s about Hair extensions.

For any Hair, related queries feel free to contact us on 9324649621. Because you know that we at Happie Hair are always for you and always with you! Be safe, stay positive and stay connected.

See you soon….

All You Need To Know About Drawstring Ponytail Extensions

Up your ponytail game, girl!

 

Hello ladies!

Picture this – You have a hectic day ahead of you, be it at work or with regard to getting household chores done. On top of all this, you have an event jammed in somewhere in the middle of the day, and you absolutely cannot get out of attending it. Plus, you are having a bad hair day. Sounds relatable, right? Bad hair days are annoying, to say the least, and are oh-so-common. When you are pressed for time and are struggling with messy hair, or even when you are just feeling lazy, you need a hairstyle which is easy to pull off and looks great with almost every outfit. No other hairstyle fits this brief as well as the classic ponytail. Ponytails are a classic, and they can be styled to complement nearly every type of outfit.

PONYTAIL EXTENSIONS – BEFORE – REMY HUMAN HAIR

PONYTAIL EXTENSIONS – AFTER –  MADE OF REMY HUMAN HAIR

There is only one rule you need to keep in mind while twisting your locks into a ponytail, which is that the fuller the ponytail, the better it looks. A full ponytail feels like an unachievable dream when you are having a bad hair day or if your hair is on the shorter side. The solution is simple – Invest in a drawstring ponytail extension. In fact, we offer customized ponytail extensions that will blend perfectly into your hair. When you have a ponytail extension at your disposal, getting that perfect ponytail is a certainty that can then be achieved in a matter of minutes.

What exactly is a drawstring ponytail extension, then? It is a readymade ponytail extension with attached drawstrings with which the extension is attached to your natural hair. The ones offered by Happie Hair are made from 100% natural human (Remy) hair. Added perks are that our ponytail extensions are customizable and are easy to style.

Wondering about how to fasten your ponytail extension on? Follow this simple guide and you should be good to go:

  1. Secure your natural hair into a tightly bound ponytail using an elastic.
  2. If you have short hair, further twist your hair into a bun to prevent the shorter hair from peeking out from behind the elastic. Longer hair should be scrunched into a loose twist with securely fastened ends.
  3. Fasten the extension with the drawstrings onto the bun/twist as the case may be.
  4. Wrap a section of the extension onto the ponytail and elastic bands and secure it with a discreetly wedged in bobby pin. You could also braid the section you are wrapping to make the look more fun.
  5. Tie your hairdo up by spritzing some hairspray on or applying a blob of hair gel. This will make the style look neat and add hold to it.

Quite similar to your natural hair, your ponytail (or any other type of) extensions need care too. All you have to do is incorporate these super easy steps into your hairstyling/hair care routine for your hair extensions to last longer:

  1. Continued usage of ponytail extensions may lead to breakage of the strands in the extensions or build up. Wash your ponytail extensions regularly with a gentle shampoo and follow it up with a conditioner best suited for the texture of the hair constituting the extensions.
  2. Do away with the dullness that creeps in with frequently used ponytail extensions by working a smoothening and softening serum into the extension after every wash, and while styling if needed.
  3. If your ponytail extension is made up of synthetic hair and you plan on heat styling it, reading the instructions before styling it is a must.

The bottom line is that if you haven’t already invested in a ponytail hair extension, you are missing out, girl! If you already own one/more such extensions, follow the above guide to make the process of fastening your ponytail extension on a lot quicker.

 It’s time your ponytail tells a gorgeous tale! A la Ariana Grande

Hello, ladies!

Healthy hair is the secret to tying your final look up. No matter how well your outfit or makeup turns out, without great hair, something will definitely seem amiss. Hair care is a huge part of self-care, ladies! Having a basic shampoo-conditioner routine just won’t cut it anymore. You need to embrace the power of hair masks, and you need to do it now.

If you absolutely cannot spare some time, you could purchase a ready-to-use hair mask according to your hair type and texture. However, whipping up your own DIY hair masks will not only be cheap but also more effective. The recipes don’t have to be tedious and the ingredients don’t have to be exotic or difficult to find.

Check out these super easy DIY hair masks that have been formulated to target specific hair concerns:

  1. THIS ALOE VERA HAIR MASK HELPS REDUCE DANDRUFF:

The recipe –

  1. 2 spoons of aloe vera gel
  2. ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon powder

Method : Mix the two ingredients and whisk well till there are no lumps. Freshly scooped aloe vera is ideal, but if you can’t find that, store-bought gel works too. Increase quantities of the ingredients proportionately for longer hair. Once smooth, apply the mixture to your hair as well as your scalp.

In fact, don’t forget to massage it into your scalp. Tie you hair into a bun and put on a shower cap. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then shampoo it off. Don’t be worried if your scalp tingles when the mask is on – that just means that the mask is doing its job.

 

Benefits :

  1. Soothes itching of the scalp.
  2. Reduces dandruff.
  3. Hydrates hair to transform it from frizzy to tame.
  4. Boosts hair growth.
  5. Promotes blood circulation to the scalp.

 

 

  1. SAY GOODBYE TO DRY AND FRIZZY HAIR WITH THIS EGG AND MAYONNAISE MASK:

The recipe :

  1. 5 tablespoons of mayonnaise.
  2. 2 raw eggs

 

Method  : Blend the two ingredients well with your hands to avoid getting a liquid mixture that will not adhere to your hair. If your hair is extra coarse or dull, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil or apple cider vinegar for lustre. Coat your hair from root to tip with the mask and wear a shower cap. Then, top it up with a warm towel to help the moisture to penetrate.

Leave the mask on for 20 minutes, and then rinse with (preferably) a sulphate-free shampoo and warm water. Do this twice a week for best results.

 

The benefits :

  1. Tames dry and frizzy hair.
  2. Strengthens chemically treated hair or hair that is damaged due to heat styling, reduces breakage.
  3. Makes hair healthy and shiny.

 

 

  1. REDUCE HAIR LOSS WITH THIS SIMPLE CURRY LEAVES AND COCONUT OIL MASK:

The recipe :

  1. 10-12 curry leaves.
  2. 2 tables spoons of coconut oil.

 

Method  : Heat the curry leaves in the oil till the leaves crackle. Take the pan off the stove when they do and wait for the oil to become warm (but not cold). Massage this oil into your scalp and hair. Keep it on for 20 minutes and then rinse well.

The benefits –

  1. The proteins and beta-carotene in the curry leaves help battle hair loss.
  2. The fatty acids in coconut oil are a remedy for thinning air.
  3. The mixture also moisturises and nourishes the hair and scalp.

 

 

  1. TIRED OF HAVING DULL HAIR? LET THIS BANANA OLIVE OIL HAIR MASK COME TO THE RESCUE:

The recipe :

  1. One ripe banana.
  2. 1 tablespoon of (ideally extra virgin) olive oil.

Method : In an electric mixer or blender, blend the two ingredients. Your goal should be to have a smooth, lump-free, and frothy puree. That’s about it. The mask will then be ready for application. Wet your hair evenly and then slather the mask onto your hair and skin. Cover your hair with a shower cap and leave the mask on for 30 minutes. Then, rinse thoroughly.

 

The benefits :

  1. Repairs dull hair strands, nourishes hair, and makes it healthy and shiny.
  2. Bananas are rich in vitamins and minerals like Potassium that balance the scalp pH for a hydrated crown.

 

 

  1. THIS YOGURT AND HONEY HAIR MASK CAN MAKE SPLIT ENDS DISAPPEAR:

 

The recipe –

  1. 1 tablespoon of honey.
  2. 2 tablespoons of full fat yogurt.

Method : Combine the ingredients well. Use double the amount of the ingredients for longer hair. Work the mask into your scalp and hair by massaging it well. Coat your hair and scalp well and keep it on for 15-20 minutes. Wash your hair normally, but go easy on the conditioner. Use the conditioner only on the ends of the hair. Do this once a week.

 

The benefits –

  1. Fixes split ends, eliminates brittleness.
  2. Moisturises the hair, and the yogurt has cleansing properties that clear the scalp.

Fix your hair troubles, one hair mask at a time.

Dear Ladies

We are in the lock down mode for more than a month now. The thoughts are mostly on getting the essentials stocked up. We all are attempting to make the most out of the lockdown  – a good number days to get our act together, complete our to-do list, de-clutter, skin-goals, hair goals, fitness goals.

In the course of our everyday hustle, we often neglect ourselves. Priority is given to our family, career, education and other things. If any time is left over after all these time consuming activities, its time to treat our hair to a spa or our skin to a facial or a massage. Women living in metro cities will surely identify with this.

What if there is an easier, simpler way of attaining supple, ravishing skin and silky lustrous hair? A back to basics approach including simple additions to our daily diet. Skin and hair problems are our everyday worries. How about protecting them by increasing the intake of healthy foods. Its doable, achievable. At least its worth a try. It’s the least we owe ourselves, it’s the most we can make in a quarantine like situation. While it may not be possible to get all these foods right now, do try to pick up some of these.

Here’s a list of 9 healthy foods you can really try to include in your diet.

  1. DARK CHOCOLATE : Yes! Dark chocolate is rich in vitamins like A, B1, C, D and E which nourish your skin while retaining moisture. It releases your happy hormones and is a natural stress buster. Reduces wrinkles, and protects from sun damage. So if there is Bournville, Hersheys, Lindt in the refrigerator, you can start having them judiciously.
  2. WALNUTS : Indians always stock up on dry fruits to add to sweet dishes made at home. The humble walnut keeps your skin plump and glowing by removing toxins that damage your skin cells. It protects against harmful UV rays and has anti-inflammatory compounds which can soothe your skin while reducing scalp irritation. You can eat one walnut in the morning before breakfast.
  3. BROCCOLI  : This green veggie is available in good amount in the market these days as it is locally grown and distributed. It is full of vitamin A and C, zinc and other minerals which are important for skin health. It detoxes the body and purifies the blood. The result – clear skin and growing hair.
  4. OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS – Fresh fish like salmon of course is the first option, but in the current situation, its difficult to procure. Fish oils capsules containing Omega 3 acids are a very good option. Consuming this will lead to healthy cell membrane resulting in soft, moist, supple and wrinkle-free skin. Omega 3 capsules are available at the chemists shop and you can buy them OTC.
  5. EGGS : Eggs are one of the best super foods for healthy hair and skin. Eggs provide hydration to your skin and also repair any damage. The proteins in eggs help in softening your hair along with strengthening it and giving a really amazing shine. Sulphur from the eggs leads to shiny locks, strong nails and glowing skin.
  6. TOMATOES : Raw tomatoes added to salads or just sliced and eaten with Chat masala are everyone’s favourites. Its good for skin and can be used against the harsh UV rays of the sun. It can cure sunburn, oily skin and also prevents acne, thanks to its antioxidant content. Rich in vitamins and minerals, tomatoes are good for increasing red blood cells and even fight cancer forming cells. They have cooling and astringent properties.
  7. SPINACH : Its loaded with Iron and Vitamin A. Iron deficiency is associated with four different types of hair loss : male pattern baldness, alopecia areata, telogen effluvium and diffuse hair loss. Spinach being high in Vitamin A, folate and zinc helps transport oxygen and nutrients through blood cells delivering them to your scalp where it can help feed the follicles. Enjoy it raw in a salad or slightly cooked as a side dish.
  8. BEANS, LENTILS : Not many people think of beans as a food that promotes hair growth but thanks to their high concentration of iron and being a decent source of protein if you’re a vegetarian, (beans like Rajma, lentils like chickpeas ) can certainly assist in minimizing breakage and fighting off dryness. Iron deficiency can also cause thinning so make sure you’re getting enough.
  9. YOGURT : We love yogurt for hair because not only is it a delicious treat but its also high in Vitamin B5, a common ingredient found in hair products which help thicken hair follicles making them more resilient to breakage. Yogurt and other dairy products are often fortified with Vitamin D. Since most people are deficient thanks to our indoor lifestyles, you might want to add yogurt as a healthy snack. You can make it even healthier by adding berries in it.

Now that you are armed with these simple and easy to procure essentials we strongly recommend you stock up on them and watch your skin get clearer and healthier and your hair get stronger and thicker.

Ciao….

Hello Ladies,

I hope life is treating you well! I am here with with a blog on different types of wigs.

Interesting topic right? Have you ever wondered how Kylie Jenner can have different looks each day?

Well, I am gonna bust the secret right away.

The secret behind her different hair looks are Real Hair WIGS!!!

Let me explain ….

There are 2 types of Wigs :

Synthetic hair wigs or man made fibre Wigs.

These are cost-wise cheaper than Real hair wigs, but look fake and doesn’t blend in your real hair.

Real Hair Wigs which are 100% human hair wigs.

Since they are made of real human hair, they give a natural look and is very light-weight compared to synthetic hair wig.

So today let me share a few facts and details about various kinds of Real Hair Wig!

  1. Full Lace Wig:

Full Lace Wigs are also called as Lace wigs. It is fully hand made wig. Each strand of hair is hand-knotted on the wig like a person does embroidery on fabric. It’s a labour of love, a work of art. They tend to be costlier then machine-made Wigs because its labour-intensive.

But there are advantages galore. The hair is flexible and can be tied up into a pontail convincingly. It has baby hairs at the hair line which gives a very natural look. The skin-colour  lace on which its woven allows your scalp to breath. They can be styled in multiple ways, parted anywhere. Happie Hair Wigs are made with 100% Indian Virgin Hair. It means the hair has never been coloured before in its lifetime. The hair quality increases the lifespan of the wig alongwith a glamorous look.

  1. Half Lace Wig:

Half Lace Wigs are also called as Lace Frontal Wigs.

In this kind of wigs, the front part or the hair line is made of hand knotted hair. The back portion is made of wefts of hair stitched on lace to give volume and length to the wigs.

Full Lace Wigs and Lace Frontals tend to give similar look. The only difference is the movement of hair & the price. They are cheaper compared to Full Lace Wig.

 

  1. Cap Based Wig:

This design is best for those looking to add volume at the crown. The lightweight cap made of lace has hair handknotted in different sizes of the closure.

Similar to Half Lace Wig, front section is hand made & the hair at the back is machine tied wefts or weaves. 2 or 3 bundles of hair weaves are used to make a single wig. They are sewn onto the wig net/cap. These wigs are faster to make and hence the labour cost involved is lesser. Its main advantage is that its affordable and durable while giving a very natural looking hairline.

Pro tips for styling a wig

Your wig can be styled by using a wig brush, a wig comb, or your fingertips. Avoid using a brush designed for human hair. These brushes can create excessive tension, over-stretching the hair with abrasive strokes that may damage the hair.

Lightly spray, your wig with water to remove static electricity and return your wig to its original look. To achieve style variations, liquid wig mousse is an essential styling tool. For curly or wavy styles, just use mousse and hand scrunch to enhance the original curls.

So that’s it for today. For any hair related queries feel free to call us on 9324649621.

Yours Truly,

This Holiday Season, Let #GreatHairNoCare Be Your Mantra!

Hello ladies,

Are you all worried your hair will be a bother as you gear up to take a holiday? Don’t be. Follow this simple guide to have picture-perfect hair throughout your vacation.

Summers are rather tricky. On the one hand, all you want to do is use your free time to escape your routine and on the other hand, you find yourself trying to fix your hair woes for that perfect vacation look. Situations in which your hair don’t cooperate with you and refuse to sit right for pictures are far too frequent (and annoying). Fighting with your partner for the tiny solo mirror in your hotel room’s bathroom in the morning before heading out for a day of sightseeing sounds relatable, doesn’t it?

To avoid unnecessary fuss over keeping your hair on point, you need an easy hair routine that you can follow. This is where hair extensions come into the picture. Lugging around tons of hair products and styling your natural hair every day sounds cumbersome. You need to let go of your fixed hair care and styling ideas and make room for some chic hair extensions.

This is why you need to travel with hair extensions!

  • Using hair extensions on your trip enables you to play with a variety of looks without damaging your hair with heat or glue or chemicals.
  • Your dreams of travelling light will finally come true because you will not have to carry a huge load of hair products and styling tools.
  • You won’t have to spend hours labouring before the mirror to set your hair. This means, you can utilise your time for more fun causes like exploring your holiday destination, shopping, vacation mimosas- the works!

Micro ring loops to the rescue!

If you are confused about what type of hair extensions to get, micro ring loops are a good place to start with. They are suited for travel because they do not have as much metal content as clip-on hair extensions, which means that you won’t beep loudly at the airport security check counter. Micro ring loops also have a great grip and can be easily styled and maintained.

Here are a few tips and tricks to have up your sleeve while travelling with hair extensions.

If you already have a few trusty hair extensions you flaunt when you travel, following these simple steps while styling them when you are travelling is a good idea:

  • While putting your hair extensions on, use a teasing brush. These brushes are tiny and can be fit into suitcases without any trouble.
  • If you are on a beach vacation, scrunch your natural hair and the hair extensions as well with a sea salt spray to get a perfectly blended, cute beachy look.
  • Clip the wefts closer together if your natural hair is considerably shorter than your hair extensions.
  • Style your hair extensions first and then fasten them to your head instead of vice versa to save time.
  • If you are holidaying at a cold wintery destination, use a hydrating serum or argan oil on your hair and the extensions for a tamed look.

Beat the heat in style and say goodbye to hair damage forever! Follow this guide to up your style quotient while you are on holiday. All you have to do is invest in the right hair extensions and then, you will be all set to experiment with colour, textures, and lengths so long as you opt for customisable hair extensions.

Hello,

Hi, this is  Vrinda. I have been receiving a lot of queries from all the lovely ladies out there asking if there are any after effects of hair extensions, as in like “is it really safe to wear hair extensions?” So I thought of writing this blog to give some real facts and bust some myths.

 

 

MYTH 1. DO HAIR EXTENSION DAMAGE YOUR REAL HAIR?

Clip On extensions & Micro Ring loops are really gentle on your hair. This is because clips and micro beads are silicon lined and give a gentle but firm grip. Its like clipping any normal clip or broach on your hair. Micro Ring Loops are installed without any glue or heat. These extensions are installed in your hair by adding the micro loop having a weight of only 0.8gms or 1gm each. Needless to say you MUST consult a hairstylist who is trained in hair extensions to advise you which type of hair extension is suitable for your hair and your lifestyle.

 

MYTH 2. IT MAY NOT BLEND WITH YOUR REAL HAIR

This is so not true when you are talking about real human or remy hair extensions. Synthetic or artificial clip ins do look fake & don’t blend in real hair because they have an extra shine and are thicker and heavier than normal hair. Kannekalon extensions on the other hand are heat resistant and look more like real hair inspite of being artificial.

Whereas, if you buy 100 % human hair  extensions whether its clip-ons or ponytail extensions it will blend in your hair pretty well.

Synthetic hair cannot be an alternative. If you want volume and length you should definitely go for  real or Remy Hair Extensions that will blend in your hair and give you a natural look.

MYTH 3. ARE HAIR EXTENSIONS HIGH MAINTENANCE?

The answer to this is NO!

They are not high maintenance! You can wash clip-ins at home using a mild shampoo and conditioner. You don’t have to wash them every time you wear. You have to wash them after you wear them 10-15 times.  Applying conditioner to them and rinsing after 30 minutes will ensure that they look soft and shiny and will be tangle free.

Additionally you can apply hair serum to them to style them and take good care.

All this takes only about 15 minutes of your time in a month( depends upon how frequently you use your extensions).

 

MYTH 4. HAIR EXTENSIONS TAKE TOO LONG TO INSTALL?

Once you get used to wearing hair extensions it will only take 2-3 mins to wear them. Hair extension can be an ideal solution for long and lustrous hair in an instant. They will be your best friends for life.

 

MYTH 5. HAIR EXTENSIONS  MAY BECOME  VISIBLE 

This can be true if you apply it incorrectly. You can check our videos to learn how to wear extensions without visibility.  Also, micro ring loops are masterly installed and mixed flawlessly into your hair. No one will be able to make out that you have installed extensions.

MYTH 6. HAIR EXTENSIONS CANNOT BE STYLED –

This is probably one of the biggest myths about hair extensions. Real hair extensions can be styled as you do to your natural hair. If you don’t want to damage your real hair by styling them you should definitely go for extensions. But make sure to invest in good quality of hair so it serves you the best by giving your hair a natural feel.

So if you are looking for volume and length instantly, we are just a call away.
