We know… there’s a lot of information on hair extensions out there. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed about which method to choose. Learn what hair extensions are, the different types of hair extensions in Australia, and which one is right for your hair.
What Are Hair Extensions
There are many different types and brands of hair extensions available in Australia. Some can easily be applied and taken out in the comfort of your own home.
Hair extensions can be worn to add length, volume, fill in gaps caused by thin hair, or to add non-committal colour. Or they can simply be worn as a fashion statement to bring the wow factor to any look.
You will find hair extensions in Australia to be either real human hair or synthetic. Like Showpony, the premium products made from real human hair can blend easily with your natural hair. But synthetic hair extensions, although cheaper, are not as beautiful and versatile.
What Are the Different Types of Australian Hair Extensions
Hair extensions you can find in Australia are often clip-ins, tape, and wefts, to mention just a few. It’s important to choose a method that not only looks good with your natural hair but feels comfortable to wear. Here are the four most popular Australian hair extensions, which can also be found in our online store.
If you’re looking for an easy to apply, reusable hair extension, you can’t look past our 3 in 1 Hair Extension. It’s our newest addition to the family and has only recently joined the Australian market of hair extensions. These are best suited to medium to thick hair.
The 3 in 1 Hair Extension is quick and safe to apply, with no adhesives. It works just like putting on your favourite headband, sitting around the top of your head like a beautiful halo.
Want a bit more security? This versatile one piece also comes with removable clips, so you can clip in into your hair in one easy to apply line across the back of your head.
Looking to glam up your up-do? The 3 in 1 can also be wrapped around your ponytail and secured using a pin for a jaw-dropping effect.
Care for this one properly and it can last up to a year.
If you are looking for a temporary hair extension that you can apply or remove as you wish, clip in hair extensions are the best choice.
Clip ins are the most popular method in Australia because of their practicality and versatility. These hair extensions can help you achieve your dream hairstyle in minutes before you even step out the front door.
If the safety of your hair is your concern, there’s no need to worry! Simply apply and remove these hair extensions gently to avoid causing any damage. Showpony Clip Ins come with 7 pieces, so you can choose the volume and density to suit your style!
These hair extensions can work in any hair type, but they work best if you have medium to thick hair. If you have thin hair, start by adding a few of the larger pieces and go from there.
Tape hair extensions are another excellent choice for long-term use. Tape and Skin Weft Tape hair extensions are best suited for people with fine or thinning hair.
Application is easy, but it must be done by a professional stylist. Your stylist will need to place the tape as close to the scalp as possible for these hair extensions to look natural and feel comfortable.
We must admit, the only downside to wearing these extensions is you need to keep your hair down. If you want to tie it, keep it in a low ponytail.
Weft hair extensions are another popular and semi-permanent option in Australia. They are an excellent choice for people with thick hair or those who want a dramatic transformation!
Designed to be cut to size, Showpony double drawn Weft Hair Extensions can be applied using Micro Beads or sewn in using our Showpony safe application methods.
Because of this, weft hair extensions can be timely to apply and should only be done by a trained professional stylist.
How to Choose the Right Hair Extensions for Your Hair
Weft hair extensions are best for thick hair for three reasons:
- The application needs a lot of hair to be sewn in.
- You need natural hair thick enough to hide the weft extension.
- They may cause damage to thin or weak hair during the application process.
Tape hair extensions are an excellent option if you want something semi-permanent, and you don’t mind wearing your hair down or in a low ponytail all the time. They are perfect if you want to wake up every day with amazing hair, ready to go.
If you want the safest and easiest Australian hair extensions that you can apply to any hair type, the best choice are the clip-ins and 3 in 1. They are the safest and the easiest to apply as they do not require adhesives, heat, or chemicals, and can be removed and applied whenever you like!
