Choosing the correct hair brush types may be overwhelming, and your decision will depend on both your hair type and what you want to get out of brushing your hair. Here at Flip-In, we want to make sure you’re using the right hair brush types for you. With such a variety to choose from, it can be hard to tell them apart. Do you know which, for example, would be best for your Flip-In Hair extensions?
Finding the appropriate hairbrush may sound like a menial task, but as this is something that will be part of your everyday routine, having it in place is going to make the world of difference. We’re not just talking about hairbrushes that detangle either, but rather those that are best for your particular hair type, for preventing breakages and for bad hair days. Discover more below.
Hair Brush Types: Paddle Brushes
Paddle brushes usually have bristles coming out of a soft cushion and are great for massaging the scalp, detangling knots and smoothing naturally straight hair. A paddle brush is also perfect for use after you’ve straightened your hair. The wide, flat brush makes it a better companion for straightening as it smooths your hair to create a pin-straight look! A paddle brush will work wonders for your Flip-In Hair extensions as well – whether you’re using a Flip-In Flash or Ponytail.
When our hair is wet it’s at its most vulnerable and is more prone to breakages than at any other time, especially when we brush it. Using a wide-toothed comb means you can brush through your wet hair without the worry of damaging it. These combs are also great for evenly distributing leave-in products. When doing this, it’s important to make sure these products are distributed properly. Otherwise, clumps of product can be left to their own devices and you’ll need to wash them out.
Boar Bristle Brushes
Boar bristle brushes are best for those with curly hair. As curly hair is naturally drier and coarser, a boar bristle brush helps to distribute the hair’s natural oils and spread them out properly, adding a little extra moisture to your curls. They’ll also get rid of any dead strands, leaving your hair healthier and shinier!
Hair Brush Types For Your Extensions
We find that a simple detangling brush would work best for your hair extensions. This type of brush won’t be too harsh on them and will help tame any frizz. Boar bristle brushes are also useful for taming frizzy extensions, leaving them silky and shiny!

As you may have heard… festival season is back on the cards and we couldn’t be more excited! It’s been a little while now since we pulled our wellies out of the shed or Googled ‘how to put up a tent’, and we can’t wait to get started. But, in between reminding ourselves about the outdoors essentials, who amongst us has thought about their Favourite Hairstyles?
After all, you can’t forget about nailing that all-encompassing festival look, not this year at least!
So, if you haven’t splashed out on the fancy showers and the hairdryers, those of you sleeping in a tent will need some help keeping your hair fresh. That’s why we’re going to share our top tips for ensuring that your hair remains looking fabulous this festival season, with a few go-to favourite hairstyles thrown in for good measure. Let’s get started!
The Last Shower…
Make the most of your last shower before you head out on the open road or jump on a train. You’ll definitely need to cover all bases when you’re in the cubicle, so make sure to wash and shampoo your hair before you set off.
When you condition your hair, most of the product should be applied to the lengths of your hair, not the roots. This will ensure that your hair appears shiny, not oily – we want to avoid that for as long as possible!
If you can, you should also make time for a hair mask – even if you only leave it in for ten minutes! Giving your hair a little bit of extra TLC before the exciting weekend ahead is also a good shout. If you have any hydrating products, now is the time to embrace them. Using a light leave-in conditioner will be sure to cushion the blow should you cause any damage to your tresses.
Step Away From The Other Products!
We need to draw the line at leave-in conditioner for now. The other products you would normally use at this point will do you more harm than good at a festival! Mousse, hairspray, serum and pretty much anything else you can think of will weigh your hair down and make it look greasy much quicker. We know it can be tempting but it’s for your own good!
‘What about dry shampoo?’, we hear you ask. Dry shampoo is an absolute godsend when it comes to festivals but it works best when your hair is already dirty. It will soak up excess oil but only if there’s any there to start with! With that in mind, try to use dry shampoo when you really need to. If your hair is on the greasier side, you may need to use this sooner, but if you can, hold off until before you go to bed after the first day, or till your second morning.
Don’t forget to comb or brush (whichever you prefer) your hair regularly even though you’re bound to be distracted – you don’t want to come home with knots and split ends! Your hair is probably going to go through a lot anyway, so there’s no need to make the situation worse.
Our Favourite Hairstyles To See You Through The Weekend
The possibilities are endless when it comes to hairstyles, but we know that not all hairstyles are created equal! Before you set off, make sure you have an idea of what you want to do with your hair. This means you can spend less time thinking about styling and more time enjoying yourself. Your efforts might be in vain if the heavens open but that’s the risk we take… don’t you just love the British summertime? It might be wise to pop a waterproof jacket in your backpack for good measure.
For the first day or two, why not keep your hair down? You’ll be having so much fun, you won’t even notice it anyway. Let your hair dry naturally and maybe scrunch it a little bit to create some effortless ‘I woke up like this waves’ à la Alex Chung at Glastonbury. Your hair will most likely still look pretty good the morning after, so make the most of it! A half-up, half-down has a lot of potential at this point, don’t you think? Or you could twist the sides and pin them back, moving on to the perfect mini messy bun before you whip out your dry shampoo.
Towards the end of the weekend, braids or buns are your best friend. If you struggle with braiding your own hair, chances are your friend will help you – what else are friends for, right? Braids are perfect for disguising greasy hair so if your dry shampoo isn’t quite cutting the mustard anymore, no one will notice!
Braids can be intimidating if you’ve not attempted them before, but this handy guide is perfect for beginners. If braids aren’t your thing, try some buns! A top-knot, messy bun or space buns are our personal favorites. We know these styles aren’t revolutionary but they’re quick, easy and will leave you with plenty of time to live your best life!
When all else fails – accessorise. Throw on a hat or a bandanna, you can’t go wrong with either of them. We know they’re a bit 2009, but we’re not entirely opposed to flower crowns either, they’re still super-cute and we’ve been told they’re back! If it’s the very last day, it’s definitely not the end of the world if you decide to add some hair glitter into the mix, after all, you’ll be reunited with your shower in no time.
What About Extensions For Your Favourite Hairstyles?
There’s no reason why you can’t wear your extensions at a festival! Our extensions don’t require any clips, glue or weaving so they’re perfect when it comes to switching up your look in a flash! If you’re more of a ponytail person, don’t worry! Our ponytail extensions give you the extra length and volume you want in no time at all.
At Flip-In Hair, we can help you create virtually any style you like so if you want to add a pop of colour to elevate your favourite hairstyles this festival season – we’ve got you covered! If it’s the length and volume you’re after, we can do that too. Make sure you check out our colour match service so your hair can stay as seamless as possible, even if you’ve been out in the sun and your hair is a little lighter than usual.

We all know that we need to keep our hair safe from heat damage when we’re styling it, but how can we protect hair from sun damage this summer? Wearing SPF on your skin when you’re venturing out is essential and so is taking the appropriate steps to safeguard your hair from the sun.
Many of us spend our money on regular haircuts, shampoos, conditioners and masks to try and keep our hair as healthy as possible. Sadly, however, some of our favourite summer activities are the absolute worst when it comes to undoing all of our hard work. Stick with us to see what you can do to keep your hair strong and healthy this season.
What Will The Sun Do To My Hair?
Exposure to the sun’s rays can wreak havoc on your hair if you don’t have adequate protection. Your skin isn’t the only thing that can burn, your hair can too. Have you ever noticed that your hair feels particularly dry and brittle in the summer? That’s because UV rays damage the hair cuticle, your hair’s outermost layer.
Too much sun exposure can also harm your scalp, which can become sensitive and burn. Even though we have hair covering our heads, for the most part, that doesn’t mean the scalp is impervious to sun damage.
But What Can I Do To Protect Hair From Sun?
The easiest thing you can do to combat the sun is pop on a hat! Find a style that suits you (and your outfit, of course) and rock that hat all summer long, especially during peak sun hours (11am – 3pm).
You could also get your hands on an SPF oil or spray for your hair. There are several products on the market, so there’s a very high chance you’ll be able to find one from a brand you know and love to see you through the warmer months.
For those with coloured hair, knowing how to protect hair from sun damage should be particularly high on your list. The sun is notorious for altering the colour of your hair but it can’t do that without damaging it in some way. If you have blonde hair and want to lock in your colour for longer, saving yourself some money in the long run, it’s a good idea to invest in some purple shampoo. This will counteract the effects of oxidation by neutralising yellow tones. Even if you don’t have blonde hair, you can still use purple shampoo to tone down any brassiness.
You Don’t Need To Stay Away From The Water But…
Chlorine and salt water aren’t your hair’s best friends either. When going swimming, make sure you wet your hair before you jump in. Yes, you’re probably going to get it wet anyway but your hair is like a sponge, it soaks up water. If your hair’s already wet by the time you get into the pool, it won’t be able to soak up as much chlorinated water. Chlorine is vital to keeping pools clean but will strip the natural oils from your hair, making it dry and brittle. You could even wear a swimming cap. We know it’s not everyone’s style but this could reduce any chances of damage!
Still worried about water seeping into your hair? You could apply a bit of coconut oil before you enter the pool. The oil will repel moisture and stop your hair from absorbing it should it find a way in.
Salt water strips your hair too, making it dehydrated and frizzy. You should be extra careful if your hair has been coloured recently or it could end up looking dull after a swim in the sea. Though it may not always be possible, wetting your hair before a trip to the seaside is definitely advised.
Wherever you’re swimming – make sure you wash your hair as soon as you can. Applying a hydrating mask or using a leave-in conditioner to replenish your locks is the best course of action following any exposure to salt water or chlorine.
Reviving Your Hair With A Little Help
Has your hair been left feeling dull and lifeless this summer? We can give you a little bit of extra oomph! At Flip-In Hair, we offer wired extensions that don’t require clips, glue or weaving so you can revive your look whenever you want to! Don’t forget about our colour match service to make sure your hair stays as seamless as possible, even if the sun has changed its colour.

Buying hair extensions isn’t the cheapest thing to do, which is why it’s important to take care of them to give them the longest lifespan possible. Much like if you were to buy a new pair of trainers or handbag, looking after these products is going to benefit you (and your pocket) in the long run.
Why Is Caring For Your Extensions Important?
Extensions aren’t attached to your scalp, so they don’t receive constant nutrients and oil deposits in the same way as your hair does. They are chemically processed, which means they are drier and slightly coarser than your natural hair. Due to this, you’ll want to use ingredients that will replenish and add moisture to your hairpieces.
When choosing products for your extensions you should be looking out for those that contain long-chain fatty alcohols. Products featuring coconut oil or palm oil will benefit you as they’ll draw moisture into the hair and add a smooth, slippery texture to help with detangling. Generally, these ingredients are found in conditioners and deep conditioning treatments.
Aim for Morrocan oil, argan oil or castor oil-based products. These will help to hydrate and moisten your hairpieces.
How Should I Wash My Extensions?
When it comes to washing your extensions it is important to remember that they don’t receive the same oils and nutrients as your natural hair, therefore, it’s not necessary to wash them as often as you would your own hair.
A good rule of thumb is to wash them every 30 days or when they become difficult to style as this means there’s a build-up of product!
Brush your extensions and rid them of any tangles.
Shampoo each weft individually – this will help prevent tangling.
Condition each weft individually – leave the products to soak in for around 10 minutes.
Apply a deep conditioner – leave this in overnight for the best results.
Rinse hair thoroughly – ensure there’s no slippery texture to the hair.
Rinse under cold water – this will close the cuticles ensuring the moisture stays in the hair.
Air-dry your extensions – using heat will create frizz and could potentially damage the hair.

A lot has happened in the last 100 years, times have changed and so has hair! Imagine telling a flapper girl a century ago that there would eventually be a device small enough to put into your handbag (depending on the size of your bag, of course) that could curl or straighten your hair in a matter of seconds? She’d need a lie-down!
Why don’t you take a break too? Grab a cuppa and get ready to learn about the last 100 years of hair trends
1920s – The Roaring Twenties
The roaring 20s were famous for their extravagance and rebellion! Back then, anyone who dared to call themselves a fashionable young woman wouldn’t be seen dead without a bob! This short, angular style was first met by a lot of resistance but as with most things, it was soon welcomed into the fold.
It was easy to maintain and women adored feeling liberated after chopping off their locks! If you wanted to transform your look in the 1920s, you could curl your hair using scraps of material to create tight, springy curls. Are you now thinking about how you could brush up on your heat-free styling knowledge? We’ve got you covered, check out our blog post from March!
1960s – The Swinging Sixties
Fast-forward forty years and the world had changed even more! We’d been through another World War and things were relatively normal once more. A hip new band from Liverpool called The Beatles were on the scene and absolutely everyone was trying to put together the biggest beehive possible.
Created by Margaret Vinci Held in 1960, the beehive became the most popular hairstyle of the decade and was worn by everyone, from Aretha Franklin to Audrey Hepburn. Towering hair was now the popular style and women around the world were back-combing and hair-spraying more than ever. If your hair wasn’t as high as possible in the 60s, it may have been wavy and flowing instead. Hippies were also a common sight at the time and their carefree attitude extended to their hair – they were more concerned with music than worrying about hairspray!
1970s – Fighting Crime And Keeping Time
Peace and love weren’t the words on everyone’s lips anymore but hair trends are still a very big deal. Many women were trying to recreate American actress Farrah Fawcett’s feathered hair after her rise to stardom following the television series ‘Charlie’s Angels’. Others were keeping their hair long and straight, a style popularised by Cher – who still rocks that look today! Both of these styles have stood the test of time, proving that most looks make their way back into the mainstream after a few decades away.
1990s – You Gotta Get With My Friends
Skip the big, permed hair trends of the 1980s and you’ll find The Spice Girls at the top of their game a decade later. After watching Friends, everybody wanted ‘The Rachel’ and Jennifer Aniston’s iconic hairstyle soon became one of the most famous in history! Almost twenty years on, we’re still talking about it, so it seems like Jen’s stylist certainly did something right.
The Present Day
As you’re probably aware, a lot has gone down in the 21st century, and we’re only 21 years in! Ross and Rachel finally decided if they were on or off and Cher is still as iconic as ever. We’ve moved on from butterfly clips and roll-on hair glitter to barrel wavers and air stylers but there’s one thing we all know – we can do anything we want to our hair.
Flip-In Hair can help you make any style you want a reality – whether it’s adding a flash of colour or simply creating the length and volume you desire.
Our wired extensions don’t require clips, glue or weaving so you can put them in and take them out in no time, allowing you to change your look even if you change your mind. Don’t forget about our colour match service so your hair can stay as seamless as possible!

Mullets – Straight Outta The ‘80s
The ‘80s are back with a bang! Softer versions of the mullet are cropping up everywhere, with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Zendaya and even Rihanna sporting this striking style. Here at Flip-In we love the individuality of a mullet, so why not put your own twist on it with Flip-In Flash? We have a variety of colours to make your mullet magnificent!
Curtain Bangs – Back From The Fringes
Longer than traditional bangs, curtain bangs are a luxurious yet low-maintenance hairstyle for 2021. Hugely popular in the ‘70s, this hairstyle looks amazing with short or long hair. Using Flip-In Original you could even have the best of both worlds. Our extensions take less than a minute to fit and add lush length to your beautiful locks.
Red Tones – Can You Stand The Heat?
Red hair was a big hit in 2020 and now we’re seeing softer hues of red popping up in 2021. Gigi Hadid has been inspiring us with her gloriously ginger hair – the new mum showing us that we don’t need to drastically alter our colour to make a statement. Our Colour Match options are second to none, with plenty of red variations to help you perfect this iconic look!
Farah Fawcett – ‘70s Chic
In another ode to the ‘70s, the Fawcett Flip – named after Farah Fawcett, the OG Charlie’s Angel – is making a huge comeback this year. This layered, full feathery hairdo has taken TikTok and Instagram by storm with Brie Larson and content creator Mallory Jade showing us just how it’s done. Add extra volume to your cute new look by using our Flip-In Original to get it big and bouncy.

Whether the damage is thermal, mechanical or chemical, OLAPLEX has a product to rebuild the bonds in your hair and bring it right back to health.

The gradual easing of restrictions, no longer needing to wrap up warm, a potential return to – whisper it – life as we know it?
Whilst there’s much to be celebrated as we move into spring, one thing that we do need to be mindful of is the impact that the sun can have on our hair. Heat styling isn’t the only thing capable of frazzling our gorgeous locks, you know!
How Can The Sun Damage Our Hair?
Even though most people are aware of the dangers of sun-damaged skin, considerably less are in the know about what the sun can do to our hair. In fact, when we spend too much time basking in its glory, we may experience discolouration, brittleness, bleaching and an increase in split ends. Hair that has fallen victim to sun damage will also become almost impossible to manage – and most commonly affects those blessed with fairer or lighter hair colours.
Why Does Sun Damage Occur?
Sun-damaged hair occurs because of how the sun’s rays react with a natural substance known as melanin. When strands of hair are exposed to heat, they can change colour, lose elasticity and become weaker in structure. All of this can set the stage for lasting damage, sunburn and a big ol’ dip in confidence.
What You Can Do To Avoid Sun-Damaged Hair
Fortunately, there are many precautions you can take to reduce your risk of sun damage. Here are some of our favourites!
Suitable headwear: Before we even get into products that we recommend to protect your hair and scalp, the first thing we’d advise you to do is to wear a hat whenever you go outside. This is similar to why you would wear clothes that cover your skin when you know you’re going to come into contact with the sun. Hats not your thing? Try using a headscarf or umbrella instead.
Proactive haircare: All good hair care starts in the shower, so make sure you invest in a decent conditioner or pre-conditioning shampoo to get the ball rolling. Using these sorts of protective products will give your hair a fighting chance against the sun’s rays and also boost its moisture levels at the same time. As the warmer weather can increase the rate at which we sweat, these moisturising products are especially important to use during the spring and summer.
Use an SPF on your hair: SPF products (think sunscreens, sunblocks etc.) aren’t just useful for the skin, and many of these can help protect your hair from seasonal sun damage. Here, our advice is to apply these products just before you go outside, paying extra attention to the tips of your hair as these are most at risk of harm. Because some SPF formulas can make your hair extensions greasy, it is always best to apply them to these parts of the hair in moderation. If this proves to be a problem, it might be worth changing up your look altogether. Ponytail, anyone?
Be mindful of swimming: This last one might be tempting fate a little, but exposing your hair to the chlorinated water found in swimming pools (both here and abroad) can weaken its defences against the sun. To stop this from happening, wear a swimming cap or keep your hair out of the water altogether by tying it up. Harmful chlorine should also be rinsed away by showering after you leave the pool.

“Hi, the 2000s called and asked for their non-protective, heat-damaging hairstyles back!”
Straighteners and curling wands may have been your best friend in the past but, sweetie, they were definitely not good to your hair. It’s time to ditch the heat damage and liven up your hair with these no-heat hair styling ideas!
If you can manage to put your overnight oats in the fridge every evening then you can absolutely spend 10 minutes of your night-time routine on some overnight curls! This simple hairstyle can be created in super-quick time and the longest part is sleeping on it – perfect for a lazy Sunday night. You can even apply this hairstyle to your Flip-In wefts with ease as well!
You don’t have to use curling wands or straighteners to get the super-cute beach wave look! We’ve got a simple style for you to try out! Ensuring your hair is damp, split your hair in a middle-parting and weave in two Dutch braids on either side. This is another style you can leave overnight for better results! Use the Flip-In Original to add length to this windswept, tomboyish hairstyle.
Right, it’s getting closer to your hair wash day and your luscious locks are feeling greasier as the hours go by. Of course, we could recommend some dry shampoo and send you on your way, but that’s not our style. You can choose either high or low space buns (we’d recommend high for ultimate grease coverage). Using a middle parting and some patience, twist each section into a bun for a cool and quirky look! For more volume use Flip-In wefts to create thicker buns.
As we’re all well aware, the 90s are back and Britney’s iconic pigtails are making the rounds this year. Put together a more modern version of this classic with the half-up/half-down style. Split the top sections in two, preferably using a middle parting, and easily create your pigtails! For an extra pop of colour use Flip-In Flash.

Hairdryers, curling irons, straighteners – where would we be without them?
For many of us, these heat-based appliancesare inseparable parts of our daily quests to throw together the perfect look, whether we want our locks to sit in tight ringlets, lie flat or demonstrate their natural curls.
But what of the heat damage associated with the use of these tools and the impact it can have on the strength and health of our hair?
It’s a sad fact that frequently exposing the hair to extremes of temperature can leave it brittle and broken, with compromised keratin proteins and a cracked cuticle(the hair’s outer layer) contributing to split ends, dryness and seemingly unmanageable knots and tangles.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way – heat damage can be avoided, and here’s how!
Be strict with your styling times
Look, we get it, your hair is important to you, but spending too much time under the blow dryer or with your hair wrapped around your latest styling product only has one outcome: serious heat damage!
Be less absent-minded when you use these tools and keep a check on just how long you’re spending on your look. We’d recommend using things such as curling irons in short, ten-second bursts and ensuring that all of your appliances are always on the lowest heat setting. Your hair will thank you later.
One of the best arguments we’ve come across for the use of a heat protectant is that it’s the equivalent of making sure you applysunscreen before leaving the house on a hot day. Simple, right?
By applying a heat protectant ahead of your hair-styling routine, you’re actively taking steps to reduce your risk of heat damage. This is because the ingredients featured in these products slow down the rate at which your hair conducts heat.
Remember, though, that these sprays and formulas can only do so much, so you still need to make sure that you’re limiting your usage of heat-based appliances as much as you can.
Look after your hair
It’s been suggested that heat damage is much more of a possibility should you fail to properly look after your hair on a day-to-day basis, and this is something that should go without saying.
The use of shampoos and conditioners that feature sulphates and parabens has been identified as a major factor in the development of dry, lacklustre-looking hair – a departure into brittleness that can only be exacerbated by the application of heat to already-damaged locks.
Avoid this by switching to hair-washing products that are free of these destructive ingredients. There are plenty of these out there.
By far and away the best method of beating heat damage is to swear off heating appliances altogether. Sound like too much to handle? It really isn’t.
Though they may be more time-consuming (you have time, there’s a lockdown on!), you could use more “primitive” tools such as curlers and rollers to help you achieve your hair goals, not to mention the plethora of styles that can be put together with minimal accessories: braids and updos, anyone?
It should also be obvious by now that our extensive range of hair extensions can also provide a great alternative to heat-styled hair. These are made from 100% human hair and can be added and removed in an instant, giving you the chance to embrace a new style at will!
