Holding Halo Extensions in hand

Easy to apply alternatives to clip-in extensions

3 min read

Hair extensions are widely loved thanks to the range of styles they offer, which can meet many specific hair goals. Clip-in  human hair extensions in NZ are a popular choice, but many people don’t realise there are options out there that are much easier to apply. In this blog post, we discuss ponytail and halo-weft extensions, and why they make a great alternative to clip-in extensions.

Clip-in Hair Extensions

Before we can get into the alternatives, we need to discuss the pros and cons of clip-ins. In theory, they’re easy to apply, and this means that you can do it yourself. But to get the most natural look out of your clip-ins, it can take a whole lot of time and patience—and probably even a friend to help you.

When attached properly, you can create some gorgeous volume and extra length with them, but wearing clip-in extensions for an entire day can put a lot of strain on the head and can feel extremely uncomfortable and tight. Don’t get us wrong, clip-ins are fantastic, but some people may find them too difficult to install or may be looking for a more comfortable all-day wear

Ponytail Extension

Available in a huge range of lengths and colours, a wrap-around ponytail with a clip is the perfect solution for a quick hair fix—achieving a long, voluminous, and realistic ponytail. The best part, of course, is that it only takes about 2 minutes to apply, then you’re ready to rock your new—but temporary—locks.

Since our ponytail extensions are made from 100% real, high-quality human hair, they can be curled, toned, straightened, and washed with care. Depending on the usage, a ponytail extension will last anywhere between 3 and 18 months—the better you care for it, the longer it’ll last!

To apply, all you need to do is tie your hair in a ponytail, then take the upper part of the extension ponytail with the clip and secure it into the root of your natural ponytail. Take a long, thin piece of hair to wrap around your natural ponytail, make it extra secure with a clasp, and you’re done! Yup, it’s that easy, no need to figure out where to place it, or trying to hide bulky clips—just a quick application, mirror check, and you’re good to go!

Halo-Weft Extension

Our Halo Weft extensions are one of the greatest innovations in the market right now. They’re easy to apply, and give you a full head of long, beautiful, and natural-looking hair. These are so easy to apply that they’re without a doubt the best product to start out with if you’re new to the extension world.

Unlike clip-in extensions, there’s no need to section off your hair, saving a whole lot of time when you’re getting ready. Don’t worry though, the look is always salon-quality, seamlessly blended, and perfect for those of you who love wearing their hair down. All the freedom of human hair; use your favourite heat tools and, if you want to try a new look, they can even be dyed and toned (just not bleached)!

The Halo Weft extension set comes with one main halo piece that easily clips to the back of your head, with two smaller weft pieces that can clip into the front. Together, the three wefts come to a weight of only 180 grams—not too heavy for the natural volume they provide. Don’t spend all your time getting ready sectioning off your hair, have the perfect hair for a night out in an instant! They’re not just the easiest to apply either, they’re one of our most ‘invisible’ extensions available. No one will know the secret to your gorgeous hair.
