Great for adding length AND volume

The trend is all about achieving a lush and voluminous look that seamlessly blends with your natural hair. I’m thrilled to see extensions moving in this natural direction because maintaining that natural look has been my ultimate goal with extensions.

What are your celebrity clients asking for?

“Natural” is the resounding request from all my celebrity clients. They’re after a look that’s not only lush, voluminous and full but radiates a healthy appearance. While some clients are leaning towards added length, the key is maintaining that rich, luxurious feel from roots to ends.

If we want volume, not length, can we use extensions?

Yes! Extensions aren’t just about length, they’re incredibly versatile. Whether you’re aiming for subtle volume or a bold transformation, extensions are the secret behind many celebrity looks. They can add volume, colour or even fix an unfortunate haircut.

What are your best tips for looking after hair extensions?

Look for a sulfate-free, paraben-free moisturising shampoo and conditioner. When in doubt, consult your hairdresser for their professional recommendation. Incorporate a moisturising mask into your routine every other wash. Keep your extensions brushed and detangled, never go to bed with wet hair and secure it in a loose bun or braid before bedtime.

What is your best advice for applying clip-ins?

When applying clip-ins, work with tidy sections. Use a rat-tail comb to create a part where you want to place the clip-in, and gently back-brush the section for added grip. For those with fine hair, a light hairspray on the roots before applying the clip-in can provide extra security.
