Sleek black, voluminous ombre, braided locks, and so much more

Once shunned upon as unnatural and fake, hair extensions have come a long way from just being an added wad of hair for women with short hair to now in itself being a fashion statement, and almost every celebrity is into them. The perks? You don’t have the hassle of long hair, they’re easier to manage, and they look just as good (if not better) than real hair. So, definitely, it’s a great time to get yourself some of that extra volume and charisma alongside. Also, now more than ever, extensions are officially a trend, we’ve seen sleek black hair, voluminous ombre waves, braided locks, and so much more. You definitely want to try this, and to get you some vision about the trend, we’ve got you a few celeb-inspired looks that you could try.


Halsey has always been experimental with her hairstyles, while in real life she has a really short bob, she is often seen in colourful wigs and extensions. For a quirky and edgy look as hers you could go for tiny streaks of bright hues, to add a kick of colour to a monotone dress and wet-look black hair.

Jennifer Lopez

J Lo quit the troubles of long hair a long time ago, but that hasn’t stopped her from donning long locks of blonde and brown hair, in this particular look, she went for a sleek ponytail and long voluminous beach waves. You’d think pony tails are casual or festive, but J Lo has framed it an elegant fashion with embellished jewel-embellished earrings and bronze makeup.

Cara Delevigne

Cara has always been edgy with her looks, but she doesn’t fail to grab the opportunity to look elegant and classy when required. Cara who actually sports a pixie cut originally has swapped the look for an extension mermaid plait. From the front her real hair has been side swept elegantly framing her face. The look is excellent for graceful and formal nights or a charming date.

Kylie is literally the epitome of fashion fads, with sleek long black extension she very well established that long hair is the new cool.
