This gem of a brush - we can't rave about it enough. Its recommended that this brush is used morning and evening to ensure the lifespan and integrity of the hair.

What's so special about it? 

This brush has unique bristles which will is amazingly gentle on both your own hair and your extensions - be it wet or dry.  I love it for use in the shower to make sure that conditioner makes it all the way to the ends.  It is as ergonomic as they come, and fits snugly into the palm of your hand. Furthermore, it is compact enough to fit in your handbag.  All of the above makes it perfect for hair extensions maintenance whether they be permanent or of the clip-in variety.  

Get yourself one here

Works with:

This brush is suitable to use on all of our hair extensions as well as your own locks.

These are the hair ties you didn't know you needed in your life. They gently secure your hair whereever you want to tie it up, be it a low or high ponytail. The great things about this is that they bend and go where ever you need them to and they won't budge once in place.

You can buy them in boxes of 4, and they are available in silver, gold, baby pink, baby purple or a mix of the 4.  I'll take one of each, thanks!  You can score some for yourself here

 Works with: 

Any of our Kiki hair extension ranges and your own hair too.

Those are the absolute best hair styling tools we have in the salon, the Tangle Teezer and Ties are such great haircare tools that they fly out the door! 

The other styling tools you may consider are a Curling wand and a straightener.

If you do have a curling wand get ready to create some breathtaking curls, using the below approach. 

  • Section your hair into parts, about 2 inches thick
  • gently wrap your hair around the wand, holding onto the end and keeping that straight
  • wrap the hair in the direction you want the curl to go, usually away from your face
  • hold for a moment
  • repeat on each section
  • let the curls cool off and gently run your fingers through them
  • set with hairspray.

I don't know about you, but I can't live without my trusty hair straightener.  It gets me out of a bad hair day in 5 minutes tops.  If you're wanting to do a bit more than straighten your hair, try this top plait look. 

  • To achieve this first straighten your hair as you normally would, preferably in 6-8 sections.
  • section off the middle of the top of your hair and divide this into two
  • have one section tied and plait the first section
  • repeat for the second and fasten with bobby pins or a thin elastic.
  • hairspray if required.

I hope you've enjoyed learning all about the absolute best hair styling tools for your extensions as well as for your own hair, by using these tools your hair will be looking so shieke and shiny, you will need some shades!
