A Flip-In Guide To Hair Brush Types

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. 

Hairbrush Types

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

 

Wide-Toothed Combs

 

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!

Our Top Tips And Favourite Hairstyles This Festival Season

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! 

 

Favourite Hairstyles Flip-In Hair

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.

No-Heat Hair Styling Ideas

“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!

Hair Styling Ideas

Overnight Curls

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!

Beach Waves

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.

Hair Styling Ideas

Space Buns

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.

90s Pigtails

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.

Summer Hair

Summer isn’t cancelled!

That’s right, summer 2020 can still be epic. Although many of us are getting fed up of being stuck indoors with all of our travel plans cancelled, there’s still a great summer to be had. 

Take matters into your own hands and use this time to work on yourself, go on long walks and video chat with old friends. Get ready for post-lockdown by resting up, getting some exercise in and stunning your friends with a new look. And no – we don’t mean cutting your own hair!!! 

Add length and volume to your hair with Flip-In Hair products and style them just like you would your own hair for a natural, blended finish. To make things easier, we’ve rounded up some cute ways to practise styling your Flip-In Hair Extensions while in lockdown!

Sleek and Sexy

Whether you’re preparing to celebrate a belated birthday or make a good impression when you get back to the office, the sleek look is worthy of such celebrities as the Hadid sisters, the Kardashian clan and, now, you! 

Make sure you blow-dry and straighten your hair and extensions before fitting them. Rock a middle parting to achieve that extra slicked-down look. The length your Flip-In Hair Extensions can provide you with will give your hairstyle more drama than an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. 

Bouncy Curls 

There’s no better way to make a statement than with big, bouncy curls. Be the life and soul of the party for post-lockdown festivities with hair to match the mood. Flip-In Hair Extensions can be curled just like your natural hair and will add all the volume you’ll need to turn heads. 

Practise your look in lockdown so you nail it on your first night back on the town. 

Beach Waves

While holidays have been cancelled left, right and centre, you can still bring the beach to you! Beach waves are a staple look that always bring an effortlessly chic edge to your outfit. For simple waves, begin about halfway down your hair, around ear-level, and curl your hair loosely in different directions. Do the same to your Flip-In Hair Extensions and fit for mermaid-like length. Shake up your hair and use some salt spray for that tousled effect. 

If you have thinner hair, try our Flip-In Hair Lite to achieve a seamless look. 

Get your dream hair 

Here at Flip-In Hair, we focus on making your dream hair a reality. With luxury hair extensions, you can upgrade your look with no damage to your natural hair. To learn more about our range of products, visit our website. To contact us, call us on 01926 659 500.

The summer season is full to the brim of excuses to have your hair looking its best self. We are in the midst of holiday, wedding, graduation and festival season, so if you’re sat on the fence and unsure whether to splurge out on giving your hair a lift in volume, length – just a burst of colour – then hopefully our promotion will help you to make your decision.

Zero-Damage Extensions

And the best part? You don’t need to sacrifice the health of your hair as our extensions come with zero damaging effects – meaning no glue, weaving, or clips; they simply rest beneath your natural hair and the only minor work you have to do is disguise the wires with your own hair!

Stress-Free Flip-In Hair Extensions

If, like us, you LOVE the feeling you get when you see yourself in the mirror with some brand new hair extensions, then you know all too-well just how much of a struggle it is to get to that point. Most quality hair extensions have to be professionally put in and removed by trained experts, which is not only very time-consuming, but also very costly with each new appointment. This proves to be a problem for those of us with back-to-back schedules and a tight budget. Once they’re in, hair extensions are not only notoriously difficult to maintain and manage, but they can seriously damage your natural hair. While it might be worth the stress, surely there’s a simpler solution?

An Innovation in Hair Extensions

 

That’s where Flip-In Hair extensions come in! Our innovative products have been providing a very quick and easy solution to your hair extension woes since 2007, and we’ve come so far in the last decade. Internationally recognised, our adjustable wired extensions are designed for comfort and versatility, offering a unique layered design, with a tapered finish and an overall natural look. With no clips, no glue, and no weaving, you can add length and volume in minutes in the comfort of your own home. Our extensions can be removed as easily and they are applied, meaning you can temporarily switch up your style with no long-term commitments and without having to face growing them out! With wiring instructions and detailed hair care guides, looking after your Flip-In Hair extensions is no trouble at all. Eliminate stress and cut back on monthly costs by indulging in your first Flip-In Hair Extension that’ll have you hooked from the get-go!

 

Extensions to Suit Your Style

 

Manufactured here in the UK and shipped around the globe, our award-winning extensions are loved the world over. As well as the basic extensions, we offer numerous variations to meet your style wants and needs. Flip-In Hair Flash is a smaller extension that is 5 inches in width and provides a flash of colour to your hair, while Flip-In Hair Lite is half the weight of the Original extensions. Finally, the Flip-In Hair Ponytail simply hooks around your existing hair to give you an instant ponytail. All of our products come in a wide range of natural and bright colours and are made from 100% human hair for an effortless, natural result in seconds.

Hair Extension Styling

Styling Your Flip-In Hair Extensions

With the spring in full swing, and Summer just around the corner, there’s plenty to be excited about! However, with your schedule so full of social events, it can be tricky to know how to style your hair so you can look fabulous even in the heat! Luckily, at Flip-In Hair, we’ve put together some of our favourite long-hair looks to see you through summer, and what’s more, all of them are easily achievable with our innovative wired hair extension styling.

 

Beachy Waves

The long days and scorching heats of the Summer of 2018 may be a distant memory, but this stunning style will never go out of season! Loose, effortless-looking textured curls look good on everyone, and are incredibly simple to achieve. After placing and blending your Flip-In Hair extensions with your natural hair, simply section the hair and curl different-sized sections to prevent the hair looking too uniform. Once you’ve finished, add some texture spray for a tousled look and some hairspray to keep it in place and you’re good to go!

 

Messy Bun

There’s nothing like a messy bun for a low-effort, simple style decision that still looks elegant and glamorous. Perfect for both formal events and a casual night out, a messy bun is the perfect way to capture a timeless style that won’t add hours to your beauty routine. Utilising your

Flip-In Hair extensions can help add extra volume to your look, so after blending, pull your hair back into a loose ponytail, leaving a few strands at the front to frame the face. Then, twist sections of the ponytail and loop them back around to pin at the base and use a grip to pin into place. Once complete, finish with hairspray. For a half-up half-down look, pull only the top section back into the ponytail, leaving the lower half down.

 

The Sleek Ponytail

If Ariana Grande’s high, smooth, impossibly long ponytail makes you green with envy, the good news is that it’s easy to achieve with the help of a Flip-In Hair Ponytail. All you need to do is pull your own hair back into a ponytail, and secure. Then, use the guide on our website and follow the instructions to create the perfect look.
