Got hair extensions? Want to try some new hairstyles? Here are some pretty amazing hair extensions. You can find the right haircut here, no matter what the occasion!

1. Lob hairstyle

Lob hairstyle

Lob hair is also known as a long bob, whether it's layers, texture, or ombre, you can master this style. This style gives your hair more personality and you don't have to worry about the awkward growth phase of your hair.

To style a lob with great volume, you'll need high-quality clip-in extensions, scissors, a comb, and bobby pins. Starting with freshly washed, dry hair, clip the extensions in toward the base of your head.

Take a hair extension with three clips and clip it to the back of your head, then place another one on top. Next, place a set with two clips right behind each ear. Then take a set with four clips and place them along the back of your head, followed by another one on top.

Once the extensions are firmly in place, use scissors to blend them perfectly with your natural hair. If your hair is around shoulder-length, you may not need to do much cutting of the extensions.

Once the length is right, take your natural hair out of the clips, run a comb through it, and then it's time to style! Start by spraying some root lift spray on your extensions to add texture and volume. If you want to take your hairstyle to the next level, use a curling iron to add some volume to your hair.

2. Vintage wavy

Want to add some glamour to your look? Vintage waves are definitely a great choice. They can give your hair bounce in just a few easy steps. And because they are heatless, they are safe for both natural hair and hair extensions.

Start with wet hair, apply styling mousse and let your hair air dry. When your hair is just a little damp, you can start curling it. Start by separating your hair into three sections, then into smaller sections to match the size of your rollers.

The larger the roller, the more hair volume you will have. Straighten one section of hair, then curl the ends inward on the roller. Repeat until all hair is held in place by the roller. Let hair sit for about 20 minutes. If you want your hair to appear more voluminous, place some rollers around the top of your head.

3. 1970s short hair

1970s short hair

The voluminous haircut and the wavy layers, bangs and wild textures have made this hairstyle popular to this day, with stars like Selena Gomez, Billie Eilish and Miley Cyrus all sporting it, including the wolf cut and tousled mullet. This layered hairstyle has a natural volumizing effect and is relatively low maintenance.

You can let it air dry or use a texturizing spray to enhance the voluminous and full effect. If you have curly or wavy hair, apply a curl cream and let it air dry to play up your natural texture.

If you have straight hair, using mousse or styling cream on wet hair and scrunching it upwards while blow-drying will add volume. Clip-on extensions allow you to play with length, no matter what style of bouffant you have.

4. High-volume ponytail

High-volume ponytail

Ponytails are one of the most versatile hairstyles, flirty, playful, and fun. Take a section of hair from the front of your face, two to three inches on each side. Apply dry shampoo to the roots and use a comb to brush your hair back.

Then invert a four-pin extension at the roots at the back of your head and a three-pin extension at the crown. You can stack two or more extensions on top of each other to make the hair look more voluminous. Next, gather your hair into a high ponytail. Moving toward the back of your head, clip two one-clip hair extensions into the separated hair.

Bring your natural hair to the weft and bring it back to the ponytail with the rest of your hair, securing it with an elastic band. To add some flirty waves to your ponytail, wrap an inch of hair around a one-inch curling iron and finish by spraying hairspray on the hair and the look is complete!

5. Side braids

Side braids

If you're looking for a braid style, then check out this sweet and voluminous side braid. Whether you're going to a party or to class, this romantic hairstyle will turn heads.

First, use a curling iron to add loose waves to your natural hair and extensions. Spray your hair with a heat protectant spray to minimize heat damage. Once your hair is curled, place it on the side of your head. Part the hair at the temples and hold the weft securely with three clips.

Take a section of hair from the top and tie it into a ponytail with an elastic band. Hollow out a small hole in the elastic band, flip the ponytail and pass the hair through the small hole. This will form the top tail section of the braid. Next, tie a ponytail with hair from the other side of your head. Braid another ponytail.

Repeat until you have three or four braids that run from your temples to your ears. Secure a three-clip weft at the bottom root. Gather all the remaining hair and braid it into a fishtail braid. Secure the bottom with an elastic band. Gently pull back a small portion of the braid to add volume and give it a fuller look, and as a final touch, add some shiny bobby pins, flowers, or a headband.


Hair extensions not only add volume to your hair but also allow you to experience a variety of different looks. You can even customize hair extensions to solve many of the problems your hair will face, whether you have short hair, thinning hair, or flat hair, are you ready to try hair extensions?
