The pursuit of flawless hair is a day-to-day pastime for many women.

Everywhere we look we are surrounded by beautiful images of women with long luscious locks and at some stage or another we have each been guilty of lusting after hair that we just don’t have.

What’s the answer? Hair extensions.

According to Ariana Mantzaris, Founder of leading Australian hair extensions brand Amazing Hair, hair extensions are the secret beauty weapon being used by a growing number of women.

From Hollywood head-turners to Melbourne mums, extensions are the perfect way to achieve your dream look.

“Hair extensions have come a long way in the past several years” explains Ariana.

“Gone are the days of sitting in your stylists chair for 5 hours having extensions glued in. With the latest technology tape extensions, women can completely transform their hair in as little as half an hour.”

But are hair extensions just for the young? According to Ariana extensions achieve incredible results for women of all ages.

In Your 20’s: Luscious Length

Tape extensions are perfect for girls in their twenties wanting to add gorgeous length to their style. The key to ensuring the hair looks flawlessly natural? Correct colour matching and beautiful blending of your extensions to your natural hair so that no one knows your length isn’t all yours.

Pro Tip:

  • Allow hair it to air dry 90% before blow-drying. This will help maintain the hairs condition and extend the life of your extensions.
  • Apply a conditioning serum to the hair before styling to speed up dry time and leave hair silky soft and shiny.

Are you a mum on the run with little time to spend in the stylist chair? Then a few subtle extension highlights could be your answer.

Explains Ariana: “An increased number of time poor women in their 30’s are opting for tape extensions to add natural highlights to their hair. With so many natural colours available to choose from, it is a quick and easy way to add an instant burst of fresh colour with the added benefit of extra volume!.”

In your 40’s: Super Style

Gorgeous waves and elegant up-do’s are always in vogue and for women lacking the suitable length or volume to achieve such styles, clip-in hairpieces are the go to choice for transforming their hair.

“Clip-in hairpieces are the perfect solution for woman wanting to create stylish up-dos or mid-length to long special event styles, but they lack natural volume or length to do so,” continues Ariana.

50+: Natural Volume

More mature women are just as concerned about their hair remaining fashionable as younger girls are, says Ariana.

“They are looking for solutions that keep their look youthful and fresh while at the same time help solve various hair concerns that come with the natural aging process.”

For many women hair growth slows as they age making it difficult to grow their hair past shoulder length. Shorter 12-inch tape extensions offer the perfect solution for women wanting an on trend mid-length style.

Extremely lightweight, they put little pressure on fine hair and add beautiful natural volume and subtle length.
