We are so sorry to hear that you're having troubles blending your hair extensions in with your natural hair. Don't worry, we are here to help and would love to provide you with some suggestions that will help your extensions blend seamlessly with your hair.

Firstly, you need to understand why your hair extensions aren't blending well. There are multiple reasons as to why this may be occurring because everyone has a different hair type and cut. Not every customer can simply clip the extensions in and be ready to go, some of us have to put in a little extra effort. To give you an example, if you have a lot of layers, it is likely that you will have to also layer your extensions to get a seamless blend.

Here are some of our tips and tricks on blending extensions into different hair types! 

Tips for Short Hair

If you have short hair it will take a little extra work when it comes to blending your hair extensions in with your natural hair. Here are our biggest tips! 

  • Select the right set! If your hair is super short you will need to use the Deluxe 220gram set. This is to ensure that you have enough wefts to hide the transition between your natural hair and the extensions. 
  • Trim or Layer your extensions! We recommend getting your hair extensions blended in by a trained professional. This can also help you learn exactly where to place each weft. 
  • Curl your hair extensions! Styling your hair extensions is the easiest way to help blend your hair with the extensions. By curling your extensions you can create a seamless blend. 

Tips for Thick Hair

Are you having trouble blending in your extensions because your hair is too thick? We are super jealous of that this is your problem. Our Deluxe 220gram set is perfect for thick hair. Here are some of our top tips for blending our extensions into thick hair.

  • Clip the wefts higher on your head. By clipping the wefts in higher on your head or spreading them apart more it can help create a seamless blend.
  • Wash your extensions. Washing your hair extensions can actually make them appear thicker, as they expand a little after washing. 
  • Braid the bottom section of your hair. Section off the bottom of your hair from ear to ear, then braid and secure it against your head with bobby pins. Go ahead and apply your extensions like normal. This will help blend the extensions with your natural hair and you won't see those cheeky bottom laters of hair showing underneath the extensions. 
  • Style your hair! Curling your extensions after you've applied them can help create a seamless blend. Ensure you take a piece of your natural hair and piece of the extensions in each curl for the best result. 

 Tips for Thin Hair

If you have thin hair you will find that your biggest problem is usually trying to hide the clips. Our 120gram classic set is most suited to thin haired beauties.

  • Tease your hair for grip. By making a solid base for the wefts by teasing your hair you will allow the clips to have something to hold onto. 
  • Identify how high you can place your clips. For thin hair you usually don't want to place the clips any higher than the top of your ears, this will ensure that none of the wefts are visible. 
  • Find the right position for your wefts. Whilst we recommend a certain placement of wefts, everyone has a different sized and shaped head so it isn't always consistent. Play around with the placement of your wefts until you figure out the positioning that works best for you. 
  • Be selective with your wefts. If you have thin hair you won't always need to use all of the clips. If you're struggling to find space to clip in a weft, chances are you just don't need it. 
  • Tease the crown of your head. Once you have applied your extensions and have your gorgeous new locks you might notice that the bottom of your hair feels a lot thicker than the top. If you tease the crown of your head it will add a little more volume to match in with the rest of your hair.

Providing you attend your maintenance appointment every 6-8 weeks, Kiki Hair Extensions will last approximately 12 months. Using specifically formulated products for Hair Extensions such as the Kiki Hydrate Series will also ensure that you get the maximum life out of your hair extensions.

How well you take care of your Clip In extensions will determine their lifespan. Typically they should last between 6 months or up to a year or longer, depending on what products you use on them, and how often they are worn.

Yes, you can. The bonds of our hair extensions are very strong and will not get damaged should you dye your hair whilst they are in. However, most of our customers get their colour done at their maintenance appointment every 6-8 weeks whilst your hair extensions are out to ensure a perfect application and save time. 

We also offer some fantastic packages. For more information please visit our Packages page.

Clip In hair extensions do not need to be washed often, as they do not receive oils from our scalp like our natural hair. We recommend washing your extensions every 15-20 wears or when you notice a build-up of product. The less you wash your extensions the longer they will last. 

When you are washing your extensions you treat them similarly to your own hair, using a shampoo first followed by conditioner and a hydrating mask. When you are washing the hair never use circular motions as it may tangle the hair and always rinse thoroughly to remove excess product.

If you are wearing more permanent hair extensions, like Tape, it is recommended that you wash your hair extensions 2-3 times per week with our Hydrate range, in addition to using a weekly mask. 

Since we use Remy Human Hair you can straighten, curl and blow-dry your Kiki Hair extensions as if they were your own. We recommend using a heat protector when styling your Hair Extensions, as you should with your own hair too.

We also recommend using your styling tools on a low heat seating to ensure your hair extensions last as long as possible. Hair extensions require a lower heat setting because they are not constantly getting revitalised from our scalp like our natural hair. This means they aren't getting constant nutrition, so using a lower heat setting will allow them to last much longer. 

 

All of our Kiki hair extensions are super quick and easy to apply, with each method varying in application time.

Our quickest hair extensions to apply are our Clip On Ponytails, as they can be applied within a few minutes. Check out this tutorial on How To Apply your Kiki Ponytail. 

Our Halo Hair Extensions are just as quick as our Ponytails and can be applied in minutes! Check out this video for a tutorial on How To Apply Halo Hair Extensions.

Our Clip In hair extensions take anywhere between 5 and 15 minutes. The more you apply your Clip In extensions the quicker the process will become. 

Our other more permanent hair extensions can be applied within an hour or two at one of our salons. To book call us on 1300 545 442.

Kiki Hair Extensions are virtually undetectable as all of the different methods we specialise in have very small, discreet bonds that sit flat and close to the head. They are never too close to the hairline or part line. You can even wear your hair up without the attachments being visible.
You will need to get your Hair Extensions maintained in the salon every 6-8 weeks. Like your own hair, to keep it looking great and healthy there is a little work required. Hair Extensions require regular brushing with a tangle teezer, sleeping with your hair in a plait, and using the Kiki Hydrate products to ensure your hair's longevity.

As we use Remy Human Hair you can dye and tone your hair extensions darker as this will not damage the hair. If you want to do this we recommend visiting one of our salons and getting a qualified professional to dye your extensions, and testing one weft prior to dying/toning an entire set. 

We do not recommend bleaching or lightening your hair extensions as it can damage the hair. If you are in-between shades we recommend choosing the lighter option and have them dyed darker in one of our salons. 

You can organise to have your hair extensions cut to suit your desired length or so they easily blend into your hairstyle to create a more natural look. Call us on 1300 545 442 to book an appointment. 
You will need to get your tape extensions moved up approximately every 6-8 weeks. However, this will differ based on the individuals’ hair growth. If you would like to book a maintenance appointment please contact us on 1300 545 442.
Tape and weft extensions need to be applied in a hair salon by a professional. If you are based in Brisbane or Melbourne we can organise an appointment to apply them for you, if you are interested please call us on 1300 545 442.  

Clipping in your Kiki Hair extensions is quick and easy and with some practice should only take you 10 minutes. The following steps can be taken to apply your Clip Ins!

All of our hair extensions come with a clip that is secured to the weft. Each clip has a silicone grip underneath to prevent the weft from slipping. Simply snap the clip open, and snap it back to close it. 

  1. Firstly, prepare your natural hair for application. If you want a seamless result, blow-drying and straightening the ends of your hair will give your hair more volume and make the ends of your natural hair less obvious. 

  2. Starting at the nape of your neck section off the top of your hair. After brushing the hair, apply your first piece, starting with the middle clip and working outwards. 

  3. Continue this throughout your hair with each piece being placed approximately 1 inch above the other.

  4. Continue doing this until you are satisfied and brush and style your Kiki Hair Extensions as desired. 

It may take a little practice to become a pro at applying your extensions, but practice makes perfect! 

Firstly, prepare your natural hair for application. If you want a seamless result blow-drying and straightening the ends of your hair will give your hair more volume and make the ends of your natural hair less obvious. 

Secure the top section of your hair up into a bun, starting approximately 1-2 inches in front of your hairline. Place the halo hair extension wire around the bun so it sits comfortably above your ears. Then let your hair down and style as desired.
