6 Reasons to Wear Hair Extensions

Are you considering buying hair extensions, but not sure if it's worth taking the plunge? We're here to help make you make that decision.

In this blog post, we'll highlight 6 main reasons to wear hair extensions. Everyone knows they're great for volume and length - that's no surprise. But did you ever consider that it's also a fantastic way to hide a bad haircut? Or experiment with color with absolutely no damage? How about to achieve those #hairgoals you've been dreaming about for your wedding day or prom night? 

Here are our top 6 reasons why hair extensions are worth investing in! 

1. Length

Hair Growth

Have you ever asked yourself: “Why won’t my hair grow past a certain point?” We totally understand the frustration of having hair that just won’t seem to grow past a certain length, no matter how patient, gentle, and caring you are to it. If this sounds like an issue you’re experiencing, then hair extensions may be the perfect solution. That long hair you’ve been dreaming of and working towards can easily be achieved in a matter of minutes, we promise. It sounds too simple and easy, right? Take a look at how it’s done - we’re not kidding!

Haircut Regret

We all have that one horror story of going into a hair appointment and asking for a little trim off the ends, and coming out with a brand new un-asked for pixie cut.

It happens to the best of us. The good thing about hair extensions is that it can easily fix this problem. Clip-in hair extensions will not hinder hair growth so it’s the best alternative to rocking longer locks while waiting for your real hair to grow out.

2. Color

Have you ever wanted to experiment with different colors in your hair, but you’re worried it may look bad? Or you’re afraid it will cause damage to your hair? These are all fair and reasonable thoughts. Hair extensions, however, make this process simple and easy for you - you can play around with different colours, finally try out the ombre trend, or add in those highlights/lowlights you’ve been itching towards. All that without having to worry about the long-term commitment, and without causing any damage to your hair. The beauty of hair extensions? If you don’t like the results, you can simply take them out of your hair. No hassle!

3. Volume

Hair Loss

If you suffer from hair loss or thinning hair, we understand it can be a hit to your confidence. We’re here to help you - hair extensions are a great resource for getting back that volume that you once had. We designed our 120g collection to specifically fit and cater to those who have finer hair, and we also have a blog post on How to Blend in Luxy Hair Extensions with Thin Hair. Feel comfortable in your own skin again by trying out hair extensions.

From Thin to Thick

If you’ve been looking for that extra “oomph” to your hair, look no further. Hair extensions help you achieve that extra volume you’ve always dreamed of - all it takes is a few wefts. At Luxy Hair, we offer three different weights that cater to a variety of different hair types: 120g, 160g, and 220g. 120g sets are designed for those who have fine hair and not a lot of it. 160g sets are designed for medium thickness hair, if you want to add some length and volume while still maintaining a natural looking effect. 220g are designed for those who either have lots of hair of their own and want length, or those who want a more dramatic voluminous effect.

4. Style

Change Up Your Look

Fact: Hair extensions instantly make any hair style more beautiful and interesting. With the additional length, volume, and even pop of color to your hair, you can easily make any simple braid, bun, or ponytail more voluminous and intricate. You don’t even need to use your entire set to achieve greater body in your hair; only using a few wefts may be enough to add that length and volume you’ve been dreaming about. The options are endless!

Another great way to use your hair extensions is to use them as accessories in your hair. For example, by braiding a 3-clip weft, you can create a braid headband that will be perfect for those summer festivals, or the cherry on top to an elegant updo.
