Fishtail Half Updo Hairstyle

Hair Tutorials, Hair ExtensionsLuxy Hair6 Comments

In this video, Alex shows us how to create this romantic bohemian half-do, incorporating our favorite hairstyle of all time - the fishtail braid. This beautiful fishtail “crown” will look great on straight or curly hair, and will pop even more if you have highlights or naturally sun-lightened hair. It is great for every day, but will also look impressive if you wear it to a party. We think it would look fantastic this holiday season with a nice backless dress.

Alex is wearing her custom colored Ash Blonde 24’’ Luxy Hair Extensions to add thickness and length to her hair. 

Give this gorgeous hairstyle a try and make sure to share it with us on Instagram with #luxyhair. We love seeing your recreations!

Much Love,

Skeleton Braid | Luxy Hair

Hair Tutorials, Hair ExtensionsLuxy Hair7 Comments

Skeleton Braid is a new way to create a braid that's layered, complex and super beautiful. It's definitely the new "IT BRAID" in my books, because let's just say - it takes "photogenic" to the whole next level. I have asked Zane to be my model in this hair tutorial, because it's extremely painful to create it on myself. It's one of those hairstyle that calls for bonding time with your friend, sister, mom or maybe even boyfriend, haha! 


Zane is wearing her Dirty Blonde Luxies to add thickness and length to the braid. I will also show in this hair tutorial how you can skilfully hide the wefts under the braid, so that no one can tell, not even you, that you are wearing hair extensions. 


Try the Skeleton braid and let us know what you think. Also, when you recreate the braid, make sure to tag it on Instagram with #luxyhair. We re-post our faves on our Instagram.

The Bow Braid

Hair Tutorials, Hair ExtensionsLuxy Hair6 Comments

This braid is a head turner! It's not really bows and quite frankly it's not even a braid. It all just looks like a very pretty mess that slightly resembles bows, so I decided to call it The Bow Braid. I've invited beautiful Zane to be my model, as it's much easier to create this hairstyle on someone else, so ask your mom, your sister or your BFF to help you out with this hairstyle if you can. Otherwise, you can just DIY it. I gotta warn you though, sore arms are guaranteed...haha! 


For thickness and length Zane is wearing her Dirty Blonde Luxy Hair Extensions


Give The Bow Braid a try and make sure to snap a picture and share it with us. We absolutely love your recreations, so remember to use #luxybowbraid and #luxyhair on Instagram when you post it.

Beachy Waves | For Straight & Fine Hair

Hair Extensions, Hair Tutorials, Hair Tips & TricksLuxy Hair2 Comments

Hi everyone! It’s Zane from Luxy Hair here! In today’s tutorial, I’ll show you how I create my beachy voluminous waves. 


My hair is naturally fine and straight and that’s why it tends to look more flat. I love to create wavy hairstyles, as I really like the volume and effortless look that they create. For this reason, I’ve perfected my Beachy waves routine that works nicely for my hair type and lately this has become my go-to hairstyle. In order to achieve that extra volume and add more drama to this look, I’m wearing my Dirty Blonde Luxy Hair Extensions. 

 

Try out some of the tips I’ve shared and let me know how it works out! I would love to hear from you!


Much Love,

Hair Extensions, Hair TutorialsLuxy Hair10 Comments

It's that time of year again. That's right...the weather is starting to get cooler (at least in London it is, haha) and the days shorter. New school year is just around the corner. As sad as I am that summer is slowly coming to an end, I'm also looking forward to beautiful fall and the cozy evenings at home with a hot cup of tea. 

To get you excited about the new school year (or work year if you are not going back to school), I have two new hairstyle ideas that are beautiful and simple enough to create on a busy school morning. One of them is my new favorite - The Fluffy Braid. I've added my Luxy Hair extensions in Ombre Chestnut for thickness and length. 

Let me know which one of the hairstyles is your favorite. Are you going back to school? 

Much Love,

Twist-Back Hairstyle

I often browse Pinterest for inspiration on anything from food to beauty to fashion. I saw an inspiration photo for this beautiful hairstyle and I knew I just had to recreate it. It's ideal for those days when you need to put a quick hairstyle together in a matter of minutes. 


In this hair tutorial I wear my Luxy Hair Ombre Chestnut Set in 160 grams. I have recently cut my hair, so now that my lighter ends are gone, my hair looks a bit darker and the Ombre Chestnut set matches my hair perfectly. 


Watch the hair tutorial and give it a try. Make sure to tag me in your Insta Photos with #luxyhair when you recreate this hairstyle. I love seeing your recreations.

Loose Waves Hair Tutorial

Hair Tutorials, Hair ExtensionsLuxy Hair15 Comments

Hi my beautiful friends!

Loose Waves are my favorite because they look like your hair is naturally so effortlessly pretty and tousled. It's sort of an art to make your hair look not overdone when it comes to curling hair. The last thing you want is prom looking curls when you are just going to work or school. Hehe!

In this hair tutorial I show you a new waving technique that's fast, easy and effective at creating loose pretty waves. I'm wearing my Ombre Blonde Luxy Hair extensions to add thickness, length and awesomeness to my hair. 


Make sure to post your recreation of Loose Waves on Instagram with #luxyhair. We'd love to feature you on our Instagram page.

How To Blend Clip-In Luxy Hair Extensions With Thin Hair

Hair ExtensionsLuxy Hair13 Comments

If you have fine hair and are looking for some guidance on how to wear your Luxy clip-in hair extensions, you’ve come to the right place. 

Sometimes, it can be a little tricky to fully hide the clips of your hair extensions. The steps we share with you in this post, however, will help you blend your extensions naturally and seamlessly!

*Important: If you are experiencing excessive hair loss or medical hair loss conditions, we strongly advise to consult with your doctor first, to discuss if wearing clip-in hair extensions is right for you. 

Tip #1: Make a solid base for the wefts

In order for the weft to have something to hold on to without sliding, it is important to create a firm and thick base to which you will clip the weft. This will help secure it in place and prevent tugging on your hair. You can create this base by teasing the roots of the section to which the weft will be clipped on. 

Tip #2: Find the safe zone

A very important step when clipping in your extensions is figuring out what your “safe zone” is. This is the area on your head where the clips will not be seen. Usually, for fine hair, the safe zone is anywhere below the line of your eyebrows. Draw an imaginary circle around your head from one eyebrow to another; anywhere below that circle is where your wefts are going to be clipped in.

Tip #3: Position your wefts

We all have different hair types, head sizes, shapes, etc. Therefore, although there is a general sequence in which extensions should be clipped (can be found here), there is no one right way to do it. Play around with the wefts and find what positioning works best for you. Fine-haired ladies especially need to pay attention to the top of the head, to make sure that the wefts aren’t peeking through (remember the safe zone!). Read the next tip for some positioning suggestions.

Tip #4: Choose your wefts

Sometimes, you won’t need to use all the wefts, and that’s absolutely okay. If you’re struggling to find space on your head for all the wefts, there is a good chance that you don’t need to use all of them. Figure out which sequence works with what wefts, and only use those. Here are some ideas you can try:

Tip #5: Tease your Crown

Once your extensions are clipped in, you will notice the difference right away in how much longer and thicker your hair feels (great feeling, right??). Naturally, it may be noticeable that you have more hair at the bottom than at the top of your head. To make it look more natural, it’s a great idea to tease your hair at the crown to add some volume to match the rest of your hair. This will give an overall harmonious, voluminous look. 

Tip #6: Choose the Right Extensions

If you have fine hair, we recommend going with the 120g Luxy Hair extensions, as they are specifically designed for thinner hair. This set will blend in beautifully with your fine hair, give length and volume, while maintaining a very natural looking effect.

Tip #7: Layer Them

Especially if your natural hair is layered, adding layers to your Luxy Hair extensions by a professional hairstylist can make all the difference! If you decide to get them cut, we recommend having them already clipped into your hair during the haircut. It will also be very helpful for you to come up with a numbering system for the wefts, so that you know exactly where each weft is supposed to be clipped in for the future uses.

Tip #8: Style Your Extensions

Although Luxies look amazing with straight hair, wavy or curled styles look a lot more natural. Wrap your natural hair and the extensions together around a curling iron to make sure they flow into one another. Learn how to do that here, here, or here.

Give these tips a try, as they will help you blend your Luxies in with your fine hair, to achieve a seamless and natural look. If you have any tips or tricks on how to wear extensions with fine hair, please share with us below. We love sharing with you and learning from you.
