What is Halo Hair Extension?

Vivien Hair halo hair extensions are a simple, one-step method to achieve longer, fuller hair. They’re perfect for first-time users and simple enough to apply for everyday wear in just a few minutes. Instead of clipping or sewing in wefts, Halo hair extensions sit gently on top of your head, secured with a thin, invisible wire.

Halo hair extensions are suitable for those with a thin to medium hair type, and hair length longer than shoulder length.

1. Who can wear halo hair extensions?

Halo hair extensions are best suited for those with hair longer than shoulder length and a thin to medium thickness hair type. For those with a thicker hair type, we recommend opting for our 220 grams Classic set or a Volume bundle instead of Halo. 

Because Halo is thinner, it is not ideal for those with thicker or shorter hair types. It will likely appear "stringy" at the bottom if attempted to blend in these hair types.

2. What are halo hair extensions made of?

Halo hair extensions are made with the same, high quality 100% remy human hair as all Vivien Hair extensions. The Halo weft has a stretchy nylon wire attached. 

3. Is the halo hair extensions wire damaging?

No. Just like clip-in hair extensions, Halo extensions are a non-damaging way to add instant length and volume to your natural hair. 

4.How does the halo stay without falling out?

There are two clips on the Halo (1 on either side), which you can clip into your hair for added security if needed. After you apply the Halo, the weight of your hair laying on top will also help keep it in place. You can whip your hair back and forth without any worries of the extensions falling out! 

5. How do the extensions blend with only one strip of hair?

Halo hair extensions are suited for those with hair that is already longer than shoulder length and thin to medium thickness.

For this reason, the weft has been specifically created with a combination of longer and shorter hairs to ensure that it blends seamlessly with these hair types. 

6. Halo hair extension for short hair

If you have short hair, we do not recommend Halo hair extensions, as they will not blend seamlessly. Instead, we encourage you to opt for our Classic clip-in hair extensions or weft hair extensions.

7. Can I wear halo hair extensions with the hair weft together?

Yes. Simply clip the weft hair on top of the Halo weft first, then apply Halo as normal.

8. How long can halo hair extensions last?

Just like your clip-in hair extensions, Halo extensions will last anywhere from 3-6 months, up to a year or longer, depending on how they are used and cared for. Be sure to brush the extensions with a loop extensions brush to avoid snagging the wire, to wash the extensions are little as possible, and to use hair products appropriate for hair extensions to ensure they last as long as possible.

9. What hair products can I use on halo hair extensions?

Just like clip-in hair extensions, be sure to use only alcohol-free and sulfate-free hair products on your Halo set or hair products specially formulated for hair extensions to avoid the hair drying out. 

10. Can I get the halo wire wet?

Yes, although we advise to wet your Halo extensions as little as possible to preserve the hair. 

11. Will the halo hair melt?

Because the Halo weft has a nylon wire, be sure to style the extensions separately at a maximum temperature of 120C/250F before wearing them. Avoid applying heat to the nylon wire, as it may melt.

12. Do halo hair extension shed more than regular hair extension?

All Vivien Hair extensions will experience minimal to no shedding throughout their lifetime. Upon unboxing the extensions, you may experience some shedding, however, after a quick brush, shedding should subside. Be sure to brush your hair extensions throughout the day periodically with a loop extensions brush to keep shedding at bay.

13.Can I dye my halo hair extensions?

Yes, Halo can be dyed darker or toned by a professional hair colorist as they are made with 100% remy human hair. Halo cannot be bleached or lightened, however, as this process is damaging to the hair. Be sure to avoid dyeing the nylon wire as it needs to remain clear and transparent.
