- Kylie Jenner’s 21st-birthday hair extensions
In 2018, Kylie celebrated her 21st by, of course, a fancy party with not one but two birthday outfits which were glorious and stunning. But what makes people surprise about her 21st birthday is that Jenner apparently dropped a casual $8,000 on extensions to get her butt-length, birthday hair that she only wore for one night.
The extensions were so expensive because, as Violet Teriti – the extension artist who put in Jenner’s 30-inch custom ponytail - explained, they were made from "Slavic hair sourced from Russia." According to Teriti, this helped her achieve the glossy shade of blonde hair Kylie J. was after. "There's nothing better than that hair because it's the only hair that doesn't need to be bleached and processed so many times, or even toned and glossed — it's naturally already highlighted," Teriti said.
She also clarified that to achieve this Rapunzel vibe, she didn’t use clip-on ponytail extensions. "A lot of people think it was a ponytail, but it was actually a weft, which is good when people are going really, really long because you have to have a lot of hair to have it look thick and long."
The hair extensions as you can see is stunning and gorgeous and of course, the butt-length ponytail did become more trendy after that night.
- Kylie Jenner’s ‘mile-long’ hair extensions (that reach past her butt)
As we said, Kylie gives us too many surprises that when we thought we are used to them, she proves we are wrong. On 24th April, the 21-year-old lip kit billionaire shared a photo of brand new butt-level-long locks with all her 132 million followers.
Her followers covered her Instagram with fire and heart-eye emojis which is essentially the highest praise a woman can hope for on social media.
Kylie’s own hair at that point of time is pretty short. But thanks to wigs and extensions, we don’t see it that much.
Expert extension tips and tricks to have Kylie Jenner’s hair looks
Ask for a razored cut and watch the texture
The celebrity hairstylist and Clairol ambassador, Kiyah Wright, explains that to ensure your extensions can blend the best way, you should ask your hairstylist to cut your hair with a razor as “A razor will give you more of a slithered cut verses a blunt cut – it really does blend in the extensions”. The texture of your hair extensions also plays an essential part in giving you a realistic look.
Double the wefts
Kiyah shared that she sometimes doubles the wefts, in order to maximize the fullness and thickness of the hairstyle. Kylie Jenner does use hair extensions to increase the thickness of her hair or to add more length. “You would use four tracks, which a track is a row on a weft—this would be pretty sufficient to give you a nice head of hair.” Kiyah Wright explained. Hair extensions can also be sold in single wefts so that you a clip in where ever you want.
So where can you get hair extensions that are high-quality, reliable and not too expensive? We could say that Apostore does provide hair extensions from weft hair to clip-in hair with different colors and various lengths.
Practice taking out your extensions to avoid damage
An essential rule that you must always remember is to make sure you are replacing them and taking them out at least every six weeks. “With the clip in hair, you can take them out every night, you can take them out ever two days if you want. They’re not going to hurt you. I do a different technique. I do a loose braid so they can latch-in to be secure. Otherwise, you tease, spray, and lock in,” Kiyah explains.
Kiyah advice that make sure you are detangling at the roots so that you can minimize damage and your hair will hardly meet breakage. If you are wearing weft hair extensions, Kiyah suggests that you shouldn’t shampoo your hair every day or pull your hair in tight ponytails as “You’ll cause the extensions to pull away from the root, and they will start to gather if you’re wearing wefts,” she explains.
