How to wear hair extensions for your wedding
Often when it comes to achieving your perfect wedding hair, you may need to consider wearing hair extensions. Adding volume and length is sometimes the best way to get amazing looking bridal hair! We spoke to Foxy Locks to get their top tips on picking the best hair extensions for your wedding day…
Thinking of hair extensions for your wedding?
While searching for bridal hair inspiration, you may be wondering how those brides on Pinterest achieve those elaborate and intricate hairstyles. They’re hair extensions! Whether you want some extra length or just more volume, hair extensions are ideal, and Foxy Locks have got you covered. You don’t have to worry about your extensions standing out, either – we only use Remy hair in our extensions.
What is Remy hair?
The term Remy means that the hair is virgin (aka never been dyed or treated), and that the cuticles are smooth, making the hair shiny and soft. Unlike so-called ‘Silky’ hair available on the market, it is hand-picked and aligned so that every single strand runs in the same direction. All treatment from this point is very gentle to ensure that hair is coloured and straightened without causing damage.
Remy hair extensions are ideal for weddings, as they hold styles extremely well – perfect for those curly styles! Wherever you purchase your hair extensions from, it’s key to invest in real hair or Remy hair – synthetic hair will melt if you attempt to heat style it!
How long before my wedding should I get hair extensions?
We recommend you go for your usual cut and colour three weeks before the big day, and then get your hair extensions at the same time. This will give you time to get used to the weight of extra hair by the wedding and ensures that you’re comfortable. It will also be easier to style hair extensions that have settled a little.
How should I take care of my hair extensions?
Ahead of your wedding day, make sure you shampoo and condition as you would normally. If you like, use a hair treatment too to give your hair that healthy shine.
Be gentle when drying your hair. We recommend you pat your hair dry rather than rubbing it, and be cautious around your roots. Heat styling isn’t a problem if you’ve invested in Remy hair.
