Great Hair Styles for Hair with Extensions

Extensions are a fantastic addition to your hair. Not only can they add length, but they can add volume and thickness too. You can buy real hair extensions which not only feel great, but they look great too and they can easily be heat styled, just like your own natural hair.

With extensions in, there is so much that you can do with your hair. So, to help inspire you, we have put together our guide on the very best hairstyles if you have extensions.

Beach waves

If you like the idea of letting your hair flow freely, but want to give it a bit of oomph, then you might want to think about beach waves. Of course, the quickest way to get waves in your hair is to use a wand, but, if you want to minimise the amount of heat that is on your extensions then there is an alternative.

If you wet your hair then you can twist two strands around one another, all around your hair. Secure them and let your hair dry. When you remove the hairbands your hair will be wavy and the smaller the twists, the tighter the waves will be.

Half up-half down with high ponytail

When you have extensions in your hair you may be worried about having it tied up, just in case anyone can see where they meet your natural hair. A great alternative style is to go for half up and half down.

You can make this even cuter (a little Ariana Grande if you like) by having the up part as a high pony on top of your head. This helps to get some hair out of your way, but also keeps any extension connections covered over.


The messy bun

Of course sometimes you just need to put your hair up and the great thing about extensions is that they give your hair so much volume that up do’s can look gorgeous. This is especially true for the messy bun.

Not only do extensions help you to put your hair up, but, it also means that you have plenty to have down to create that messy look. The stands that you do pull out of the main bun section not only add to the style, but, can also help to cover over any parts of your hair whereby you can see that you have extensions.


There are so many things that you can do with extensions in that sometimes it can be hard to decide which one is right for you.
