Zala Balayage Hair Extensions

Whether it’s a clean, professional hairdo for an online work meeting, or a chill and pretty hairstyle for a virtual sleepover, there’s no reason not to try out a hair change.

If you’re scared of doing something too drastic, don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything like that. Just because you’re getting a hair change doesn’t mean you automatically have to dye your hair hot pink or cut your hair above your shoulders.

For a more subtle yet still noticeable hair change, you might want to try applying colored hair extensions to your hair. In this case, Zala Balayage hair extensions.

What are Zala Balayage Hair Extensions?

Before we discuss Zala Balayage hair extensions, it’s important to discuss first what balayage is in the first place.

Balayage is a hair coloring technique where hair strands are dyed in two different colors. It has a distinct sweeping effect that leaves your strands colored in graduated and more natural-looking highlights.

So to say it simply, Zala’s balayage hair extensions are hair extensions dyed with balayage highlights instead of just a single color. They’re available in 20″ and 24″ as clip-ins, and 16″ and 20″ as halos. You can choose from four colors, namely Maldives Highlights, California Blonde, Chestnut Dirty, and Toffee Blonde.

Why Wear Balayage Extensions

All hair extensions, including balayage hair extensions, give your hair more length and volume without looking awkward. They are easy to conceal and blend with your hair so your hair looks naturally long and voluminous.

Not only do you get additional length and volume to your hair, but you also get highlights. There is no need to spend unnecessary time, effort, and money in getting your hairdresser to dye highlights into your hair and dealing with the required maintenance that comes after. With balayage hair extensions, you can get instant balayage highlights effortlessly.

If you want really voluminous hair and have enough time to spare wearing and styling the extensions, you can check the different balayage colors available for our Balayage Clip-Ins and pick one that’s closest to your natural color. But if you still want a boost in hair volume and length with only about a minute or so extra, Zala Balayage Extensions are available in Halo, too.

Hairstyles To Try With Your Balayage Hair Extensions

Long, voluminous hair is something that deserves to be shown off – especially when you’ve got balayage hair colors to flaunt. After all, not everyone sports a hairstyle with two shades of color at a time.

If you really want to show off your gorgeous balayage locks, here are a few head-turning hairstyles you should try out!

1. Defined S Waves

Compared to loose waves, the tighter and more defined S waves give off a more on-point vibe. This look is perfect for a sporty day as you watch reruns of FIFA World Cup matches, or on a pop concert while you sing along to all your favorite songs.

2. Half-Up Pony

Tying your balayage hair into a half-up pony will make your two-toned hair color pop even more. You can go the extra mile and add a few curls in using our Cosmo Curling Wand. It’s a simple yet surefire way to look stunning regardless of your outfit.

3. Low Pony Waves

Wear your balayage hair in a wavy low ponytail to exude a more professional aura. This is a great look for virtual meetings, online classes, and other work-from-home setups.

Styling Your Hair With Balayage Hair Extensions

Whether you need to look competent and trustworthy for work, elegant and stunning for a formal event, or chill and laidback for a fun day out, our Zala Balayage hair extensions will definitely not let you down. Your balayage hair guarantees that you can be fashionably ready for anything.

Zala Weft Hair Extensions

Maybe your hair was damaged after a particularly bad treatment. Maybe you’re waiting for your short hair to grow out. Or maybe, you just want a breath of fresh air after wearing the exact same hairstyle for years.

Whatever the reason may be, you’re sure of one thing – that you want a totally new hairdo, right now. And wigs won’t cut it because you can’t deal with the hassles of putting them on and off every time.

Worry not! Our Zala Weft Hair Extensions just may be the perfect solution for you.

Zala Weft Hair Extensions

WHAT ARE ZALA WEFT HAIR EXTENSIONS?

Weft Hair Extensions, more commonly known as Weave-In Hair Extensions, are bundles of thick hair you can wear in place of your own. They are double-drawn and triple-wefted to make them extra thick, perfect for those who want more volume.

In addition to this, you can dye, curl, or sew-in weft hair extensions safely since they’re made with 100% Human Remy Hair. You can even make them into a wig if you want.

Unlike other types of hair extensions at Zala , weft hair extensions are a fairly permanent option. They’re actually sewn into your strands, which makes them more difficult to remove. Depending on your priorities, this can be both a good thing and a bad thing. That’s because, while they can stay on your hair for a longer period of time, you also can’t just remove them whenever you please. 

WHY YOU SHOULD WEAR WEFT HAIR EXTENSIONS

There are lots of reasons why you might want to wear weft hair extensions. Here are some of them.

  1. Thickness. As mentioned above, weft hair extensions are your best option if you want maximum volume. Zala Weft Hair Extensions are triple-wefted so you instantly have three times more hair volume.
  2. Longevity. While no hair extension is permanent, weft hair extensions are the closest available. They can last between 3-9 months, perhaps up to a year or so with proper care. You just need to re-tighten them every 6-8 weeks and you’re good to go.

So if you want your hair to look healthier or you just want more to add some volume and thickness while you work on growing your hair, weft hair extensions are for you.

HOW TO WEAR WEFT HAIR EXTENSIONS

Weft hair extensions are usually attached by a professional hairdresser. This is because the process for attaching them to your head is quite technical. So, how do you put in weft hair extensions? Don’t worry, we have you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about how to apply weft hair extensions.

TO COVER YOUR WHOLE HEAD:

  1. Braid all of your hair into thin cornrows.
  2. Using the provided needle and thread, sew the extensions piece by piece from the nape up.
  3. Once you’ve sewn all your pieces, carefully brush down your hair.

However, this is only possible if you have thick hair since it will be difficult to weave hair extensions to thin cornrows. Also, if you have thin strands, weft extensions in general may also put too much strain on your hair and scalp. 

TO ADD LENGTH AND VOLUME:

  1. Prepare the tools you need. In this case, that’s 4 silicon-backed beads, a bead loop, a pair of scissors, weft sealant, a tail comb, and a pair of pliers.
  2. Section your hair from the bottom up. Start with about 1 inch above the edge of your hair at your nape.
  3. Along the parting, section a thin strip of your hair and clip them up separately.
  4. Check if the width of the weft is just right, ending about an inch above your ears. If they are too long, you can cut them neatly and apply weft sealant to the edges. This helps avoid shedding and preserve the wefts.
  5. Select a thin part on both sides of the wefts to hold against your head while you work on applying the wefts.
  6. Get a small part of the weft as well as a small part of your own hair.
  7. Using the bead loop, put the combined parts of the weft and your hair through the bead and push it as close to the roots as possible.
  8. Use pliers to clamp the bead shut. Make sure that the beads lie as flat on your hair as possible.
  9. Repeat steps 6-8 as you work your way through the weft piece, placing the beads about 1-2 cm apart.
  10. When you’re done weaving the piece, section the next part of your hair about 1 inch higher than the previous part. Repeat as necessary.

To hide the beads easier, use only 1-2 bundles if you have fine or thin hair. You can use 2-3 weft bundles if you have medium to thick hair.

USING WEFT HAIR EXTENSIONS TO STYLE YOUR HAIR

Whether you want to wear your hair straight down or in pretty waves, there are so many hairstyles you can do with the added volume and length from your Zala Weft Hair Extensions . Styling weft hair extensions is the best part, as the possibilities are endless. One question commonly asked is: Can you wear your hair up with weft extensions? The answer is yes! You have so many options when it comes to styling your hair. Of course, it’s important that you learn how to look after weft hair extensions to prolong their life as much as possible.

ZALA HALO® EXTENSIONS

Ever seen one of those beauty transformation challenges where a beauty vlogger changes their entire look in the span of a single 5-minute video?

If you’re a fan of hair extensions but you want something as quick and easy as those videos, then this article is perfect for you.

Zala Halo Hair Extensions

WHAT ARE ZALA HALO® HAIR EXTENSIONS?

Halo hair extensions are one of the many types of hair extensions available here at Zala .

Unlike other hair extensions that you attach to your own hair in some way, halo hair extensions just sit on your scalp. They have a thin, barely visible, circular wire that is worn like a halo on your head.

Because the wire is so thin, halos make it much easier to hide the fact that you’re wearing hair extensions.

In addition to this, Zala halos are very light and comfortable. You might even forget that you’re wearing one since they don’t add much weight to your head.

If you have fragile or thin strands, you’ll also prefer Zala halo hair extensions to other types. This is because halos don’t pull on your hair and strain your hair cuticles, which can sometimes lead to hair fall.

HOW TO WEAR HALO HAIR EXTENSIONS

There’s no need to worry about needing to practice wearing the halo hair extensions beforehand. With halo hair extensions, you can have thicker and longer hair within 30 seconds.

  1. Section your hair around the crown of your head and create a half-bun.
  2. Take the band of your halo extensions and place it over your head, starting about an inch or two from your hairline.
  3. Use clips to secure the band above your ears.
  4. Take down the bun and use a comb to brush the extensions and your natural hair together.
  5. Now you’re ready to style your hair!

One important thing: make sure the band is the right size for your head. You’ll know if it’s the correct size for you because if it’s too tight, it will pop off, and if it’s too loose, it will slip off.

Luckily, all Zala Halo Hair Extensions come with three different wire sizes, so you should try all three to see which one fits you best.

HALO HAIR EXTENSIONS IDEAS

The good news is that you can wear many different hairstyles with halo extensions.For some halo hair ideas, you can have it down (straight or in loose waves for everyday hair). You can also try out different braids or a low ponytail to give your hair more oomph while you’re out and about.

But can you wear your hair up with halo extensions? Well, if you want to pull off high buns or high ponytails with halos, it’s actually still possible. The trick is using bobby pins to keep it in place.

First, part your hair into upper and lower sections. After tying the lower section into a high ponytail, wrap the halo extension around the ponytail using bobby pins to secure its placement. Let down your upper hair section and then tie your hair into a ponytail.

USING HALO HAIR EXTENSIONS

Time limits should not stop you from looking your best. A minute or two to spare is good enough to style your strands with halo hair extensions.

After all, you never know, that stunning hairdo you wore using your halo hair extensions might just be the push you need to seize that perfect day.For more hair extension tips, don’t forget to check out our Zala blog!

Zala Tape-In Hair Extensions

Tired of your current hair and excited to transform it into something new for a change?

Hair extensions are the answer to your problem. With hair extensions, you don’t need to worry about damaging your natural hair during styling or having to wait a long time just to grow it out. 

In today’s article, we’ll feature one of the most popular hair extension types here at Zala tape-in hair extensions!

zala tape-in hair extensions

What are Zala Tape-In Hair Extensions?

Out of all the hair extensions available on the website right now, tape-in hair extensions are arguably the best semi-permanent option.

As the name implies, tape-in hair extensions are hair extensions with tapes at the base of the wefts. The hair extensions sandwich two thin strips of your hair with adhesives. They’re attached as near to the roots as possible for a natural look.

Because Zala tape-ins use very thin tapes, these extensions neither look nor feel bulky. They’re also very easy to hide and blend with your own hair no matter how many pieces you wear.

If you’re especially worried about the tapes, you can even opt for our special Invisi-Tape Hair Extensions. They’re made to be very discreet and natural, to make sure that your tape-ins can remain cleverly hidden no matter what you do.

Why Wear Zala Tape-In Hair Extensions

Zala tape-in hair extensions are very easy to wear and remove. You can transform your hair within 30-60 minutes max, depending on how many tapes you use.

Each set can last up to 6-8 weeks on your strands, which makes it a good middle ground between temporary extensions like halos and more permanent extensions like weave-ins.

After 6-8 weeks, you can either reuse your tape-ins immediately or store them away for future use. As long as you make sure to take care of them properly and keep them in good condition, you can always reuse your Zala tape-ins. 

Other than that, Zala tape-in hair extensions are also not damaging to your strands. That’s why this semi-permanent option is also a good solution if you’re waiting to grow out your own hair or if you’re resting from too many chemical treatments.

How to Wear Tape-In Hair Extensions

For best results, you might prefer to have your Zala tape-ins applied by your professional hairdresser. This is because tape-ins can be tricky to wear for complete beginners. But if you’re willing to go through the process yourself, then here are the steps.

  1. Make sure your hair is clean and dry.
  2. Section your hair starting from the bottom. Part your hair about one inch above the nape. If you’re going to wear an updo, a slightly higher starting point would be better.
  3. Of the sectioned hair, get a thin strip of your hair.
  4. Remove the adhesive cover on the tape-in and apply it on the underside of the hair strip you have as close to the roots as you can without compromising the movement and comfortability of your hair.
  5. Get the second piece of tape-in, remove its adhesive cover and apply it on top of the same strip of hair.
  6. Secure the tape-ins in place by pressing them together with your fingers.
  7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 as you work your way horizontally across the section. Make sure to leave at least 1cm between the sandwiches of thin hair strips.
  8. Work your way up repeating steps 2-7 with the next section at least 1 inch above the previous one.
  9. When you’re working on a section on the sides, make sure not to place the tape-ins too forward so that your hair extensions remain concealed and secret.

Using Tape-In Hair Extensions to Style Your Hair

With tape-in hair extensions, it’s very easy to pull off a wide range of hairstyle options depending on the occasion. It doesn’t matter if you’re going for straight strands or loose waves. You can even tie your hair in a ponytail, a bun, or a braid.

We’ve got plenty of length and color options here at Zala, including less common styles like balayage, so you don’t have to limit yourself when choosing the perfect Zala tape-in hair extensions for you.

Now, there’s no more reason to hold back on that hair transformation you want. You can even explore hairstyle options you never considered with your own hair.

2. Tape-in Extensions

Just like clip-in hair extensions, Tape-in Extensions are another type of hair extension for black hair. They have tapes or adhesives at the bases of their wefts, hence the name. A thin strip of your hair is then sandwiched between two pieces of extensions, which are taped together as close to your roots as possible and laid flat against your head.

They’re less bulky at the base than clip-ins, which means they’re easier to hide beneath your own hair. It’s also much easier to customize them by cutting them into smaller pieces, allowing them to mix in with your natural hair.

Tape-in hair extensions for black hair will blend seamlessly with your own hair and look entirely natural. Once applied, you can easily pull your hair into your favorite hairstyles!

3. Halo Extensions

If clip-ins and tape-ins are both too heavy for you, then you should check out Halo Hair Extensions. Although halos provide limited volume and have shorter length range options, they’re also the lightest hair extensions on the market right now. To say it simply, halos sit on your head using a very thin wire or string that’s almost invisible to the naked eye.

Due to this, halos are also very simple to wear. Just trace your safe zone and separate your hair into upper and lower sections. Afterward, place the halo extensions before covering it with the upper section of your hair. Natural black hair is typically thicker than other types of hair, so this should be enough to cover the wire. See, with halo hair extensions, you only need a minute or two and you’re good to go.

4. Ponytail Extensions

Bad hair day? No problem! Sports or workout day? No sweat. With ponytail extensions, you can explore the tens, probably hundreds, of ways to style a pony without worrying about it starting to look boring with your “boring” black hair.

Ponytail extensions are clip-in hair extensions specifically created for ponytail hairstyles to make them look longer and fuller. You just have to clip the extensions to your own ponytail and secure them with bobby pins. That’s it!

Having a lot in common with other people is not a bad thing, especially if we’re talking about hair colors. After all, hair extensions and even hair accessories are there to help you make sure your black hair is livelier and unique in its own fabulous way.
