No one wants a bad hair day, so why not take some time (maybe just a few hours) to learn how to give yourself a good hair day, Everyday, forever!

Even with the best of clothes, if we feel that our hair is too thin, too wispy, too short, too dull, colorless, or just not having the right look we desire, we are still going to head into feeling bad for the most part of the day. Luckily for us, we now have in our hands the power to control that mood and game changer; we can literally give ourselves a good hair day, with the help of hair wigs and extensions!

With wigs and extensions, we can easily create an improved look of ourselves to make us feel sexy, attractive and empowered.

There are now hundreds and thousands of Youtube tutorial videos on how to use wigs and hair extensions to slay the look, from adding hair to create a more voluminous head to wearing a colored wig so you don’t have to dye your hair.

So this is the first part of our two-part blog post on hair. Part 1 is on hair extensions, and Part 2 will be dedicated to wigs. Here are some tutorials which we like and hope they can help kickstart your beautiful hair days.
