Hair extensions for back to school hairstyles

Having a set of clip in hair extensions may seem to be complicated for back to school hairstyles as you just want a quick, easy and simple look. However, being able to quickly clip a set of hair extensions in and achieve length and volume instantly will be a saving grace at school!

Best of all, if you have medium or short hair, hair extensions are the ideal solutions to have a long, thick hair.

Below are 3 tips for curly extensions:

  1. First of all, we highly recommend you to use 100% Remy human hair. With that high quality extensions, you can curl, style and straighten them and they still remain style until they are washed. This means you just need to curl them once and as long as they are stored properly, you can simply clip in touch up and go.
  2. While curling, make sure that you are setting the heat at 250F and lower because anything higher may let your extensions at risk of damage. Although the extensions may be 100% human hair, but they don’t have the nutrition like our own hair to constantly get revitalized from the scalp.
  3. Always use a heat protectant spray prior to styling your set. 

Some techniques for back to school hairstyle tutorials

FISHTAIL BRAID

Step 1: Split your hair into 2 parts.

Step 2: Take a small piece of hair from the right section, cross it over and combine it with the left section.

Step 3: This time, take a small piece from the left, cross over and combine it with the right section.

Step 4: Repeat these steps until you finish your entire braid. The thinner each part of hair you take, the more detailed and defined the fishtail braid will be.

THREE-STRAND BRAID

Step 1: Divide your hair into 3 sections: left, middle, and right.

Step 2: Take the left strand and cross is over the middle strand.

Step 3: Take the right strand, and cross it over the middle strand.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all your hair is braided. Be sure to always keep the hair taught when braiding, otherwise the "stitches" will look loose and messy.

FRENCH BRAID

Step 1: Divide your hair into 3 sections: left, middle, and right.

Step 2: Take the left strand and cross is over the middle strand, just like a regular three-strand braid.

Step 3: Take the right strand, and cross it over the middle strand.

Step 4. Here's where things chance. Now, add a bit of hair to the left strand, then cross all the hair over the middle.

Step 5. Again, add some hair to the right strand, then cross it over the middle.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all your hair is braided. By always adding a bit of hair to the strands, this ensures that all your hair is gathered into the braid, creating that signature French braid look.

PANCAKING

To pancake a braid, all you do it hold it tight with one hand, then pinch and pull at the sides of the braid. Work carefully from the bottom of the braid up, and watch your braid double in size!

The following hairstyles we are going to instruct you are beautiful, chic and most importantly, are quick, simple and easy to create when you only have a few minutes before class.

1. Half-up double twisted crown

Step 1: Separate your hair at the widest part of your head and clip a 4-clip weft in
Step 2: On either side of your head, separate your hair at the temple and clip a 2-clip weft in

Step 3: Gather your hair at the crown of your head, leaving pieces at the front of your face out. Twist the hair at the bottom, and secure with a clear elastic.

Step 4: Take the remaining pieces at the front of your face from one side, twist the hair and pull toward the back, securing with a bobby pin. 

Step 5: Do the same on the other side.

Step 6: Pinch the twists and pull them apart slightly to fluff them up

2. Half French braid

Step 1: Separate your hair into three sections at the crown of your head.

Step 2: Take a section of hair from the left side and cross it over the middle. 

Step 3: Take a section of hair from the right side, and cross it over to the middle side.

Step 4: Add a bit more hair from the left side and cross this new section over the middle.

Step 5: Continue this pattern, constantly adding more hair as your braid down, creating a French braid effect.

Step 6: Once you reach half way down your head, braid the rest of the hair normally in a three-strand braid.

3. Half fishtail braid with messy bun

Step 1: Divide your hair at the crown of your head and clip a 2-clip weft in. This will add thickness to the fishtail braid you're about to create.

Step 2: Collect half your hair around the crown, create a fishtail braid. Braid about half of the hair then tie it with a clear elastic.

Step 3: Pancake the braid.

Step 4: Gather all of your hair into a low ponytail. Instead of creating a normal ponytail, tie the elastic once around the hair, and when you go around the second time, leave half the hair in a bun.
