No Strings Attached: Better Than A Halo (Plus A Holiday Hairstyle)

By Cashmere Hair

We all know and love the ease of halo extensions - just pull the string over your head and you're ready to style! However, we've always been worried that the string is showing, or that the halo will slip out of my hair mid-event (imagine: dancing your feet off at a wedding, and suddenly half your hair is on the floor. No thanks!). Our Volumizer One Piece Extension is just as easy to apply as a halo extension -- and the best part? There are no strings or unwanted seams in sight -- just gorgeous hair. Because that's the way we do it here at Cashmere Hair.

Halo Extensions 101

Some of you may not have heard of halo extensions, so let's do a quick recap. Basically, they're are a quick, one-step solution for those of us who want more hair with less hassle.

Halo extensions are designed as a single weft hair extension, with all the hair you need attached to one piece of fabric. A thin silicone wire is attached to each end of the weft, which is what gives it the Halo name. To wear them, you simply section your hair and slip the wire over your head.

This works wonderfully for some people, but for others (including us), it can cause a night of anxiety worrying if your hair will fall out or if the string on your halo extension is showing. Another big: no thanks!

One Piece Volumizer vs. Halo Extensions

Cashmere Hair's answer to halo extensions is our One-Piece Volumizer. It’s extremely similar to the halo extension design with all the hair on one track, but there are a few key differences.

It is safe to say that hair extensions being held on by a string do not induce an ample amount of hair security; for this reason, we got rid of the string altogether. Instead, we designed our one piece clip in extension with a unique clip placement that ensures your hair stays put. We even added two extra clips at the bottom of the track to ensure that your clip in hair extension doesn't slip and stays in place all night long!

P.S. If you're feeling extra and want even more volume, you could always add a few side tracks from our Classic Clip-In Extensions or Seamless Clip-In Extensions

Hello Holiday Hairstyle: Fast + Easy Boho Half-Braid Tutorial

1. Clip In Your Extensions.

Section your hair horizontally at the ears. Grab your Cashmere Hair One Piece Volumizer Extension and make sure the clips are opened, then clip into your hair. Start with the center top row clips to make sure it's even, then move along the top row clips. After that, clip the center bottom row clips and repeat.

2. Add Texture.

Heat up your straightener until it's nice and hot. Then, grab a piece of hair and over direct it towards, then away from you while sliding down the hair shaft. It might take a few trys to get right - be sure to watch the video for a nice visual! Repeat this on the rest of your hair.

3. Make Your Braid.

Gather hair into a low side ponytail. Tie it off with a cute holiday inspired scrunchie, then pull out a few pieces around your face to frame it. Split your ponytail in two, and start to create a fishtail braid, continuing until you're halfway down the pony. Tie it off with another one of your favorite scrunchies. Lastly, pull small pieces of hair out from your fishtail braid to create glamorous volume and texture.
