Shopping for a new hairstyle can be exciting, but the product needs to look right on you, not just in the store or on the website. Flip-In’s impressive assortment of colours, lengths and styles means you have near limitless options! We can see how choosing hair extensions from this massive list might be intimidating, but never fear, Flip-In is here, to guide you through colours, products and styles.
The Practical Side Of Choosing Hair Extensions
We have straight, bodywave, wider, back, lite and spiral curl hair extensions. But which ones to choose? Ringlets? Summery beach waves?
Our extensions, made from 100% human hair, can be curled or straightened normally to suit any occasion, provided you take the correct precautions to protect them from heat. Alternatively, you can style your hair to match the product. If you’re choosing hair extensions for the first time, it might be wiser to pick ones that are a continuation of your natural hairstyle, so you don’t have to worry about seamlessly blending the two.
Selecting The Perfect Style
If you’re feeling adventurous and confident in your blending and styling abilities, then it’s time to consider your face shape. None of these are hard and fast rules, but they can serve as an effective guide.
People with oval-shaped faces can generally take their pick of hairstyles, but you should be aware when choosing a long straight extension that they appear to lengthen the face. This can be a strong choice for round faces, as long hair has a slimming effect.
Bodywaves are looser curls, soft and versatile, suitable for round, square, long and triangular-shaped faces. They add plenty of volume without stacking it up around the crown. Bodywave extensions might be a good call if you’re uncertain.
Spiral curls are tight ringlet-type curls. They are very effective at adding volume and a good move for rectangular and heart-shaped faces where you want to increase the face width. Spiral curl and bodywave styles are available for lite, wider, back and original products, attesting to their popularity.
We have our own special solution for fine hair with our Flip-In Lite, if you think our extensions sound too bulky. If your hair is on the thin side, this product was designed especially for you! It’s available in straight, spiral curl or body wave versions and in our full range of colours so, one way or another, we’ve got you covered.
Finding The Right Colour
Colours are controversial. Some experts claim that warmer complexions should be reflected in warmer hair colours such as yellow, copper or red, whereas other experts advocate for warm skin tones and cooler hair colours such as green, violet or ash. At Flip-In Hair, we don’t care, so long as you are happy! That’s why we offer a professional colour matching service, so you can know that you have made the right decision.
If you’re at a complete loss, look at your eyes. Blue or grey eyes complement lighter hair, dark eyes suit brunette shades and green eyes go wonderfully with red.
Remember, you can’t tint or dye your extensions without risking damage. Luckily, with 40 different shades to choose from, plus two-tone and tri-blend products, that shouldn’t be necessary.
As if that wasn’t enough, we offer bespoke extensions. Contact us today to get the hair of your dreams.
