Hair Extension Expert Missy Ewarts Shares Her Tips For Celebrity-Worthy Wedding Hair

July 20, 2011 by Adrienne Rayski
shefinds | Weddings

Hair extension expert Missy Ewart of South Beach’s Primp Salon & Hair Extension Boutique (celeb clients include Christine Teigen, Cindy Taylor, and Georgina Chapman) is all for using extensions for a flawless wedding look. Get yourself effortless hair with these thoughts from Missy in mind:

1. Experiment. The best time to begin experimenting with extensions is about a month before the wedding. This offers enough time to create your ideal look and see what your desired length and texture will be for the big day.

2. Go for human hair over synthetic. Human hair extensions can last up to 2 months, and are most natural looking and easier to maintain than other types.

3. Break old habits. Never go to bed with your hair wet and sleep with your hair pulled back in a little pony tail, which protects the area where the extensions are attached and, more importantly, prevents tangling.

These No Damage elastics ($4.99) are ideal for comfortably pulling back extensions at night; a microfiber towel ($10) helps absorbs water from wet hair quickly.

4. You can and should brush them. Be sure to brush a few times a day from the ends up, being careful not to pull the tape or the fastener to keep extensions from tangling.

A soft, bristled brush like this Brosse 3″ Cushion Brush ($21.59, down from $26.99), is best for extensions; a wide tooth comb ($2.49) should be used when hair is wet.

5. Follow new styling rules. Switch to sodium-chloride and sulfate-free hair products to prevent the bond between your natural hair and the extensions from stripping. Keep conditioners and styling products away from the fasteners as well.

Living Proof sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner ($10-$59 each).

6. Consider clip-on’s for instant length: This type of extension is available in stores and is an affordable way to get added length in an instant.

Soft waves like in this Flirtini 18″ extension ($39) would work well in a half-updo; Jessica Simpson’s 22″ straight hair extension ($79) is another veritable option for one-day wear.

Now that you’ve got the hair, get the accessories! Start with our guides on netted wedding veils, the best wedding headbands, and floral hair accessories.
