Headband Hairstyles to Impress

Headbands seem to go in and out of style, but you’ll always see them around somewhere. Accessorizing with a headband can enhance the look of any hairstyle and it can be used for virtually any occasion. Incorporate one with mid-length hair or even if you like to wear shiny hair extensions and you’ll take your hairstyle to the next level. If you have a variety of headbands in your quality hair care collection, here are some hairstyles that will look great with one.

shiny hair extensionsTraditional Straight and Sleek

If you like to wear your hair straight down and want it to keep looking fresh all day long, then a headband will be your best friend. Washing with sulfate free shampoo and conditioner will help maintain the sleekness and the headband will control any flyaways that inevitably occur throughout the day. You also won’t have to worry about your long hair getting in the way, as the headband will ensure the hair stays flowing down your back.

Braided

No matter what type of braid you like for your hair, a headband can take the style to the next level. You may even consider investing in a braided headband to provide a perfect complement to the style. Since there are many different ways to braid your hair, trying out different headbands is a fun experiment until you find a few that work for what you want to accomplish.

Beachy Waves

An elegant, yet classic, hairstyle incorporates loose beachy waves. Your sulfate free shampoo and conditioner provides a perfect foundation for pulling off this hairstyle. Braid your hair and use a little quality hair care products to hold it in place. When you release the braid, simply run your fingers through your hair to create subtle waves and put on a nice lace headband to go with it. You’ll surely impress those around you wherever you have to go that day.

Messy Bun

The messy bun hairstyle is the go-to hairstyle for many busy people. The combination of pulling your hair up into a messy bun and adding a headband can make your one-minute hairstyle look like it took all morning to accomplish. It’s the perfect hairstyle for days when you want to look presentable, but don’t necessarily have to have perfect hair to impress.

RemySoft loves incorporating a good headband when the opportunity arises. As much as we love our quality hair care products, sometimes a simple hair accessory is what can take a hairstyle to the next level. We are always open to hearing your opinions and seeing the results of the hairstyles you’ve tried.

How to Achieve the Perfect Curls With a Straightener

People with straight hair likely have a straightener in their collection of hair tools. However, a curling iron is not something everyone owns. If you have straight hair and want to incorporate curls or waves occasionally, you don’t have to invest in a curling iron. You can achieve similar or better results with your straightener. By following some quality hair care techniques, curling your hair with a straightener is simple and quick to do. Here’s how to create effortless curls with your straightener.

Opt For Lower Heat On Your Straightener

The first thing to do is use the lowest heat setting on your straightener, especially if you use hair extensions. If the temperature is too hot, you could damage the strands and be fighting an uphill battle when it’s time to style it. Always use sulfate free shampoo when you wash as well to maximize the strength of your hair strands. Doing these two things will set you up for success and allow you to focus on your styling techniques to pull off the perfect look.

quality hair careFocus on Your Technique

Your quality hair care technique is the most important thing to focus on when curling your hair with a straightener. The secret is to work on small sections of about one inch at a time. Grab the small section at the roots with your straightener and rotate it as you slide it down the hair. Be sure to use steady movements as much as you can so all of the hair gets the same amount of attention. Your wrist movement is key to how tight or loose the curls are that you create, so experiment with different techniques to achieve the type of curls or waves you desire.

Use Your Fingers To Maximize The Curls

Once you’re done with the straightener, opt for running your fingers through the hair rather than using a brush. If you don’t want to use your fingers, then a wide-tooth comb can have a similar impact. The idea is to loosen up the curls slightly to create more bounce and allow them to set in place after the heat of the straightener. The same is true even if you use hair extensions as well.

RemySoft always has different quality hair care tips and tricks to help you achieve the hairstyles you desire. While hair extensions are always a popular choice when you’re looking to alter your hairstyle, many times tweaking your styling techniques slightly can have a similar impact. We believe simple methods typically lead to the best-looking hairstyles, so contact us today for more ideas, tips or inspiration.

What You Need to Know About Halo Hair Extensions

We all know hair extensions can make a good hairstyle look even better. Most of the time when people think of hair extensions, they think of the popular clip-in wefts that are easy to install and remove. Halo extensions are a little different, as they include a clear wire to secure on your head and they wrap around the head. They are usually applied in a matter of minutes and give you instant volume. But before you rush out to grab some halo hair extensions, we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know to ensure they’re right for you.

quality hair carePerfect For People With Long Hair Already

The one downfall of halo hair extensions is they are suitable mainly for people who already have long hair. No matter how detailed your quality hair care routine is, you’ll likely struggle to get the halo extensions to blend into your hair if it’s short. These are ideal for people with mid-length to long hair since they are very easy to blend in with your natural hair and add the perfect amount of volume.

They Are Easy to Apply and Maintain Their Hold

Halo hair extensions use a wire that rests on your head, but also has a couple of clips for additional security. Once you use halo extensions a couple of times, it’s not out of the question for you to be able to apply them in less than a minute. Simply brush your hair like normal, section it off at the crown and apply the halo where you parted it. It should feel similar to a headband that sits right above the ears. At this point, you can clip them in for added security, incorporate your favorite hair products for Remy hair and brush it out to create your desired hairstyle for the day.

Halo Extensions Are Low Maintenance

Just like traditional hair extensions, halo extensions are mostly low maintenance. The main difference you have to worry about is not snagging or cutting the nylon wire when you’re washing them or applying them. Otherwise, simply wash them periodically without overwashing them, use the appropriate hair products for Remy hair and store them in a cool, dry and dark place to extend the life of them.

RemySoft loves it when people get creative with their hair. Halo hair extensions are simple and are mainly designed for adding volume, which can take your hairstyle to the next level. Add in some of the best hair products for Remy hair and you’ll be well on your way to creating voluminous hairstyles for even the most elegant occasions.

Make Your Hair the Focal Point on Your Halloween Costume

Many Halloween costumes don’t cover up the head, which means you have to find something to do with your hair. This year, instead of making your hair just a part of your costume, make it the focal point. You have an abundance of options to get creative with, especially if you add in some hair extensions to give you more length to work with. Whether it’s simply tying your hair up in a bun and making it look like a pumpkin, creating some Medusa-inspired curls or even creating a full lion’s mane, you have the chance to truly showcase your hair this Halloween. Here are some ideas for making your hair the focal point of your costume.

Colorful Unicorns and Mermaids

Mythical creatures like unicorns and mermaids are popular Halloween costumes. Instead of buying a costume of one of them, create your own and start with your hair. With a little bit of pastel hair paint, some waves, curls and braids, you’ll create a magical hairstyle that won’t cause any damage to your hair. Using hair extensions is ideal for this costume so you have more length and volume to work with. You’ll be sure to impress at any Halloween party.

Pumpkin Buns

The pumpkin bun will be a trendy Halloween costume this year. If you have straight hair, simply pull your hair up into a tight bun on the top of your head. Paint it orange and add some fake leaves and you’ll be in the Halloween spirit in a matter of minutes. The best Halloween hairstyles are the ones you won’t have to alter your quality hair care routine much for, and this is one of them.

Medusa-Inspired Curls

If you’re feeling really creative this Halloween, you can try your hand at a full Medusa-inspired costume. Clip in hair extensions to maximize volume and create voluminous curls that can’t be achieved without them. When you curl your hair, it’s always a good idea to use leave in conditioner beforehand just for added strength and to give it more hold. Incorporate accessories like gold-painted snakes, flowers and other gold accessories to complete your Medusa look.

leave in conditionerCurly Lion’s Mane

For people with naturally curly hair, the easy choice for Halloween costumes is a lion’s mane. This looks best if you have tightly-wound curls, but even loose curls would get the job done. Focus on your quality hair care routine to maximize the volume of your hair as much as possible to get the full effect. Then all you need to add are lion ears and face paint and you’ll be ready to go.

RemySoft loves Halloween, especially when we see all the creative ideas people come up with regarding their hair. While it’s fun to get creative with your hair, be sure to keep your quality hair care tricks in mind so you don’t cause more harm than good. Most of the time wearing your hair different for a special occasion like this won’t hurt anything, but feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions or concerns.

Hair Tricks for Even the Laziest of Mornings

Everyone deserves to have a lazy morning every once in a while. However, many times we have our laziest mornings on days when we still have to look presentable. Having a collection of quality hair care products to help you pull off various hairstyles will have you prepared for any situation. Whether you’re short on time, like to plan ahead or simply wake up not feeling like styling your hair, here are some tricks to help you get out the door looking presentable.

Pre-Curl Your Extensions

When you know you’ll be short on time the next morning, consider pre-curling your shiny hair extensions. Once you curl them exactly how you want them to be, hang them in their original carrier and you’ll wake up the next morning to perfectly styled hair. The great thing about shiny hair extensions is they will often hold their curls or waves for a few days, so spending a few minutes curling them could give you a couple of days worth of great-looking hairstyles.

quality hair careTry A Messy Bun

Whether you’re a fan of the high bun or the low bun, the messy bun should always be an option when you’re short on time. A messy half-up hairstyle is quick and easy to do if you like a high bun. A low bun looks great when you leave some face-framing strands down the sides of your face. These styles look best on second- or third-day hair after using your great sulfate free shampoo. Giving the natural oils a chance to come out will provide some natural texture and help the hair stay in place better.

Double Your Ponytail

Have you ever wondered how some people have such voluminous ponytails? Chances are they didn’t do anything special except for creating two ponytails and combine them. You may need to incorporate shiny hair extensions if you don’t have enough hair to pull it off, though. It only takes a few extra seconds to make a second ponytail, but the results make it look like you spent hours on your hair.

Apply Dry Shampoo Before Bed

We always recommend using a great sulfate free shampoo when it’s time to wash your hair. However, life sometimes gets in the way and time becomes short. On those occasions, dry shampoo can save a significant amount of time. Simply apply some on your hair before you go to bed and let it go to work absorbing the excess oils while you’re sleeping. Then you’ll wake up with hair that acts like it was washed the night before.

RemySoft is a big believer in having plenty of lazy day hairstyles in your collection. It’s hard to maintain a strict quality hair care routine every day with the busy lives we have, but your hairstyles don’t have to suffer because of it. For more tips and tricks like these, and to learn about what products can enhance your hair, contact us at any time to speak with a hair expert.

Attention to detail and ensuring every strand of hair was in place made this one of the best hairstyles at the Emmys.

Mandy Moore’s Loose Curlshair extensions

Mandy Moore went with a loose curly hairstyle that had just the right amount of volume. She didn’t use hair extensions to add length, but it appears she may have used them to increase the volume in her hairstyle slightly. The secret to her perfect loose curls was washing with sulfate free shampoo the night before, but not on the day of the event. The day-old hair held the hairstyle in place perfectly.

Emilia Clarke’s Sleek Middle Part

The sleek middle part doesn’t work for everyone, but it absolutely does for Emilia Clarke. Her long hair was perfectly parted in the center of her head and flowed smoothly down her back.

Change Up Your Part Using Hair Extensions

Sometimes a fresh new hairstyle can put a little extra pep in your step and give you some added confidence throughout the day. And the good news is you don’t necessarily have to alter your hair completely to achieve it. With some shiny hair extensions and changing up your part a little bit, you can make a significant alteration to your appearance without making a drastic change to your quality hair care routine. Here are some simple ways to change up your part while using shiny hair extensions.

Deep Side Part

The deep side part is an envied hairstyle because it looks great on just about everyone. If you don’t have long enough hair or would like to add some volume to the part, then shiny hair extensions are your answer. Simply clip in the hair extensions as you normally would, but be sure to create the side part prior to adding in the last couple of wefts. This will increase the volume and make your deep side part much more defined. Pair your deep side part with glamorous accessories and you’ll be ready for any occasion.

shiny hair extensionsMiddle Part

The middle part is the most common type of part women use. It’s a versatile and nearly universal part since it looks great on most face shapes, various hair textures and lengths. When adding in your shiny hair extensions, clip them in close to the roots after creating the middle part. The idea is to blend them in with your natural hair as closely as possible. Include some of your favorite hair products for Remy hair and you’ll be set to go for the day.

Flipped Over Part

The flipped over part is a great casual hairstyle you can create with shiny hair extensions. Achieving the flipped over part is similar to the deep side part, with the main difference being clipping the extensions a little lower on the head. Then when you flip the hair over, the wefts won’t be shown and you’ll have a voluminous hairstyle everyone will envy. If you have the quality hair care products to do it, consider incorporating some waves for an even more effortless and relaxed look.

At RemySoft, we love the versatility offered by shiny hair extensions. We talk to many people who are surprised to learn about the different ways they can use extensions other than just adding length and volume. They are perfect for changing up your hairstyle ever so slightly without having to make a permanent change.
