High Ponytail Hair Tutorial | 2 Styles | Sleek + Voluminous

High Ponytail Hair Tutorial | 2 Styles | Sleek + Voluminous

The heat is on!  It's officially summer and this high ponytail has been my go-to hairstyle.

Ponytails are the hair version of a good pair of jeans.  They can be dressed up or down, worn casual or fancy.

I wanted to show my two favorite styles, a sleek version and a tousled look.  Both can be worn with the hair straight, wavy, or curly to vary the look each time.

And, to make it even easier to replicate, we have some handy-dandy photo tutorials after the video.  You can save them to your Pinterest board, so you can refresh your memory quickly the next time you are getting ready!

I love YouTube.  I can so easily get sucked in and spend hours watching beauty tutorials!

Ashley, a.k.a froufrou412 on YouTube and Instagram, is a fav because of how clearly she breaks down every style step-by-step in her tutorials.  I always feel like I can actually recreate the gorgeous hair styles she does.

She's just a peach and this video is AMAZING!  She reviews our hair and does a great boho half up hair-do that is major hair inspo.  Make sure you subscribe to her channel, she posts videos regularly.

Ashley is wearing shade 14, Medium Warm Blonde, in the 18" 180 grams set.  She trimmed hers about an inch to blend them with her shorter bob haircut.

I love that you can see how thick each weft is in the video.  The hair geek in me went wild!

Double Dutch Braids Hair Tutorial

Double Dutch Braids Hair Tutorial

I can't believe how popular Double Dutch braids have become again lately.  I remember my mother braiding my hair like this every day before school when I was in elementary school!  

These braids are great if you only have a few minutes to pull together a polished look and they are also perfect if you need to take a break from heat styling your hair or extensions.  I also love them for a quick but cute gym hair style.  They keep my hair totally out of my face the whole workout!

We added extensions to our braids to make them extra thick, but you can do them with just your natural hair as well!

I hope you enjoy the video tutorial!

Wedding Hair Tutorial // Sneak Peak of Jade Roper's Wedding Hair

Wedding Hair Tutorial // Sneak Peak of Jade Roper's Wedding Hair

This Sunday, ABC is going to be doing a look back at it's 20 seasons of The Bachelor.  I only started one season ago, when our girlgetglamorousHAIR gal Jade Roper was on the show. 

I was immediately hooked on this show and now even started doing weekly watching parties.  Gotta say, those TV producers know what they are doing, they've turned me into a Bachelor addict!

I've done Jade's makeup a few times for various appearances and she became one of our first gals to love girlgetglamorousHAIR.  Jade (and Carly - in shade 613) wore her 16" set for her appearance on ABC's After Paradise and looked stunning.

How we created Jade's Side-Swept Curls for After Paradise:

1.  We prepped both Jade's natural hair and the extensions (16" length) with a heat protect spray.

2.  We created a deep side part and clipped the hair up in layers so we could work on one small section at a time.

3.  Curled the natural hair first.  We changed the direction that we curled each piece in, to create a more voluminous style and more natural looking curls. All the hair in front was curled away from her face.  We also used two different size curling irons, a 1" and 1.25" iron.

4.  Then we curled Jade's extensions using the same technique, alternating the direction the curls went in.

5.  We clipped the extensions in and blended the natural and extension hair. {tutorial}

6.  We sprayed a texture spray throughout to create even more volume.

7.  We parted Jade's hair with the thin side of a teasing comb and back combed the top. 

8.  We added a tiny mist of hair spray to smooth down fly aways for on camera (the texture spray already has medium hold) and used a pea size amount of oil on her ends and then used what was left on our hands to smooth out the top.

How to Attach Extension Clips

How to Attach Extension Clips

 

Clips, clips, clips!

How securely the clips are attached to your hair makes a HUGE difference in how comfortable the extensions feel on your head.  You can easily wear extensions all day long if the clips are properly attached.  

The size and style of the clips also makes a big difference in comfort level.  Comfort is Queen in my book, which is why girlgetglamorousHAIR clips are extra small, have “U” shaped teeth, and have a silicone band around the bottom.  

- The extra small size is the most comfortable size to wear for extended lengths of time (hello, Wedding Day.)  

- The “U” shape of the teeth grabs your natural hair more securely than a traditional comb shaped clip.  Comb clips with teeth that mimic a comb, slip down and pull on the hair at your scalp all day.  The “U” shaped clips lock the weft in place so that it doesn’t move, for all day comfort.

- The silicone band gently grips the hair for added protection against slipping.  The extension stays exactly where you put it. 

 

How To Attach The Clips to Your Hair:

1:  Part the hair evenly.  A neat line will be easier to attach an extension weft to.

2:  Gently backcomb the inch of hair closest to your scalp.  This gives the clip a little something extra to grab on to.

3.  Once the hair is backcombed, lightly mist that section with a flexible formula hairspray.  Again, this adds grip.  Grip = comfort.  

4.  Pop open the clip by gently pressing on both ends of the clip at the same time.  

5.  Place the clip over the backcombed hair, as close as possible to the part, and as close as you can get it to your scalp.  

6.  Pop the edges of the clip towards your scalp to close the clip and lock the weft in place.

7.  To totally hide the weft, you can also backcomb the row of hair above the weft.  This will give a hair a little cushion so that the wefts don’t peak through.

When I take the extensions out, I use my fingers to gently separate the backcombed sections and smooth my natural hair back out.  I never pack the hair down too tightly, so it’s really easy and quick to smooth the hair back out.  

 

These are all my tricks to making the clips comfortable to wear for super long days!  I hope they work for you too.

How to Care for your Extensions

How to Care for your Extensions

Taking proper care of your extensions can add months and even years to how long they stay looking healthy.  I've taken good care and not-so-good-care of extensions before and the difference in how long they lasted was drastic.  Putting a little extra care really does help extend their life.  Here are my best tips:

 

1.  Just like with your natural hair, limiting how much you heat style is the number one way to keep your hair the healthiest.  Try to leave it straight or curled for a few wears, instead of switching back and forth frequently.  

 

2.  For most people, including myself, it's not realistic to never ever use a flat or curling iron.  So when I do heat style, I always use a heat protectant spray.  I mist it lightly on my hair and extensions, let it dry completely before applying heat.  

 

3.  Extensions don't need to be washed every time you wear them.  They actually only need to be washed every 10-20 wears, depending on how much hair spray or other products you use.  

 

4.  When you do wash your extensions, gently massage the shampoo in and squeeze the conditioner through, moving your hair down in three to four inch increments.  Never run your fingers down through the hair.  Running your fingers and pulling down through the hair while it's wet will start to loosen the hair wefts.  This can cause shedding and once shedding starts, it's difficult to stop. 

 

5.  Always wait until your extensions are dry before brushing them.  After I wash and condition them, I gently squeeze them into a towel, in the same way I applied and rinsed the conditioner.  Then I put them over a towel rack to dry and lightly mist a leave-in conditioner over the extensions, focusing on the ends.  

 

6.  Every second or third time you wear the extensions, rub a pea size amount of coconut oil through the bottom three inches.  This is where extensions tend to show wear the fastest, so adding coconut oil helps keep them hydrated and healthy looking longer.

 

7.  Once hair is dry, I hold the hair all together and brush it starting at the bottom.  I brush the bottom four inches, then brush from the middle to the ends, then the roots to the ends.  This helps prevent shedding.  If you start brushing at the roots, it can tangle your hair and puts stress on the hair, which can make them start shedding.  Starting from the bottom up and gently brushing them in sections to the roots helps prevent shedding and tangles.

 

8.  Every fifth time you wash your extensions, deep condition them instead of using regular conditioner.  They'll wonder that they did to be treated to special.  But for real, this will really help the ends stay feeling silky longer.

 

9.  Get a trim!  When the ends start to feel dried out, bring them with you to your next hair cut and have the ends trimmed off.  

 

10.  Start curling your extensions at the roots and work your way down.  This will save the ends from too much heat damage and prevent them from drying out before the rest of the hair.  You will also get a much more even curl this way.

 

I hope these tips are helpful!  They've helped me add months to the wear of each set of hair extensions I've owned.  What's one of the tips you definitely want to try with your extensions?  Anything you've done to help protect your extensions?  Please share below!
