Dutch pig tails are one of my favorite looks! I seriously wear them all the time to the beach, to the gym, or with a girly look for summertime! But not all of us have Elsa like hair (I sure don’t.) That’s where extensions come in to play. Most of you know that I’ve been wearing extensions for 10+ years so i’ve had a lot of experience learning how to incorporate them in just about every style I do. Because not all styles with extensions are created equal! You can’t just put them in normally like you would with your curls or you’re going to end up with clips sticking out. It can get really complicated so you have to make sure you place them in the right way, depending on the braid so that they don’t show. I wore them so much on our trip to Jamaica recently and after posting a couple pictures of them, I got a ton of requests. This video will show you how to do it to pretty easily. I’ll be showing you how to place my 18″ Euronext Extensions. I use the shade Blonde Frost, but Sally really has a shade and length for everyone, so if 18″ in this shade isn’t for you, Sally’s extensions selection stills has you covered. Since all of your hair is showing, it usually looks best freshly washed. I started off by washing my hair with this Proclaim argan oil shampoo and conditioner and then brushing it out with my Wet Brush. I love the Wet Brush because it’s nice to use a brush that’s gentle on your extensions to make them last longer. The rest you’ll find is pretty self explanatory in the video:)

Speaking of youthful looks, Sally Beauty is partnering up with Younger, a new tv show (Tuesdays 10/9 central on TV Land) for the new “Tune Into a Younger You” sweepstakes where every day in April is a chance to win $100 Sally Beauty gift card. Enter online at here!

  5. I really enjoy watching your YouTube Vids especially because you show how to incorperiate clip in extensions. I wear mine everytime I go out on the weekends or for a special event. Your vids are sooooo helpful, I usually wear my hair down and curled but ever since your tutorials I started trying new styles. Do you normally wear the 18″ or the 22″? For some reason your hair looks longer than the 18″ in your Instagram pics. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Lindsey!! I am so happy you follow along and find my tutorials helpful!! That means so much to me! And I have both 18” and 22” extensions. I love to have my 22 inch ones for when I do braided hairstyles, and usually wear my 18 inch ones when my hair is down. But I just like to have both options!! I hope that helps. Let me know if you have anymore questions!! Thanks for your comment 🙂 xo
