Congrats on your new hair extensions! Adding more hair can take some time to get used to.  In this post I am going to go into depth on how to maintain tape hair extensions so they always look amazing, and last you as long as possible. 


I highly encourage that you invest fully in your hair and purchase each tool I will mention. Depending on your hair, some of these product recommendations may change, but these are my “go-to” recommendations for how to maintain tape extensions!








#1 Framar Wet Brush

Framar Wet Brushes are an extension wearer’s best friend. Unlike any other brush, their bristles are much more flexible and are designed to not pull as hard on your hair which prevents breakage.

When using your Framar wet brush, don’t be afraid to brush thoroughly. I’m talking right over the panels of your extensions, because the bristles are so flexible there’s no way they can tear your hair out.


Brushing Your Hair Extensions : Tips and Tricks:

  • Start by brushing your ends first and working your way to the top. This will ensure that no breakage occurs, and you are not rough detangling your hair.
  • When using your wet brush, don’t be afraid to brush thoroughly. I’m talking right over the panels of your extensions, because the bristles are so flexible there’s no way they can pull your hair extensions out.
  • One of the most common mistakes we see is someone not brushing enough, and we have to detangle 6-8 weeks of not brushing at your maintenance appointments. Trust me: don’t be afraid to brush!

#2. Arrojo Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner

Let’s talk shampoo and conditioner. At Bigger Better Hair we have a luxury product line called Arrojo. Any of their shampoo and conditioners are extension friendly, and they are hands down the best shampoo and conditioner for extensions.

The entire line is free of sulfates, parabens, and harsh chemicals. They also contain skincare grade ingredients and are clinically proven to improve your hair quality.

Washing Your Hair Extensions : Tips & Tricks

  • Your tape extensions should not slip out, as they are held together with medical grade tape. If they start to slip, there’s a reason. One of the biggest causes of slippage is oil or conditioner has touched the tape. To prevent this, don’t wait too long in between shampoos, as this creates build up of your natural oils which in turns causes slipping.
  • Also, make sure you don’t condition your hair near the wefts, or apply any sort of shine, conditioning, or smoothing product near your roots. You should only be applying your conditioner and leave in from mid lengths to your ends. In other words, no higher than where you can put your hair in a pony.
  • When shampooing, don’t be afraid to get in there and scrub between your extensions. Personally, I will take a dime size amount of shampoo, emulsify it in my hands, and shampoo in between each panel. If you don’t do this, you risk oil building up which can cause your extensions to slip.
  • Last but not least, make sure you are thoroughly rinsing all your shampoo/conditioner out. Think of when you are rinsing a dish in the sink, you rinse until the water runs clear. Same thing with your extensions. Rinse completely to avoid product build up, as it can make your hair feel waxy if you do not.

#3. Leave in Conditioner & Treatment Oil

It is very important to apply a leave in conditioner on damp hair after shampooing your hair. This will protect your hair and keep it moisturized between washes. There are a variety of leave in conditioners for each hair type.


My personal favorite leave in cocktail for frizzy hair, is the Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray paired with the Arrojo Shine Lux Oil. They both offer thermal protection and frizz-free hair for up to 72 hours.

Applying a generous amount of oil to the ends of your hair to keep the extensions soft, moisturized, frizz free. As a bonus, this also offers thermal protection up to 450 degrees.

Styling Products : Tips and Tricks:

  • Make sure you only apply leave in conditioner ponytail down. As mentioned above, if you put it any higher, it will cause slippage.
  •  For the best results I recommend applying oil and a leave in on damp hair ponytail down
  • After styling you can also apply a pea size of oil to your ends to make it shiny and keep it frizz free. Or you can use a dry oil spray which makes sure you never over do it.
  • In between shampoos, you can apply a few drops of oil to your ends to keep it fresh and break down any product build up.








Common Questions:

How should I wear my hair when sleeping?

I recommend brushing it out and securing it in a low pony or loose side braid. This will prevent it from tangling and will keep it contained.


How often should I be shampooing my hair?

This varies from person to person. Someone with very oily hair will need to wash more often than someone who does not get oily as fast. A good way to tell if it’s time to wash is when your hair starts to lack volume and is starting to get oily. You should at least be washing it at least 1-2 times a week.


Can I put my hair up with extensions?

Yes indeed. You may have to do some detailing with a brush to hide the tapes. For this I recommend using the Spornette Little Wonder Brush. Its bristles work great for smoothing the hair.

Can I workout with my extensions?

Yes, just make sure you secure it back in a low pony or braid. If you workout everyday, instead of shampooing every day, try rinsing thoroughly and applying conditioner to the ends every other shampoo.


Are tape extensions human hair?

100%. This means you can pretty much do anything with them that you can with your regular hair.


How much are Tape In Extensions?

The best way to gauge the cost, is to come in for a complimentary consultation so that a stylist can recommend which of our services will work best for you. For a general idea of our services, our price menu lists all of our services and pricing.


How long does the hair last?

Each new set lasts anywhere from 6 months to a year depending on how well you take care of your hair.


How often do I need to get them moved up?

Any salon extension needs maintenance every 6-8 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows, your stylist will recommend coming in at 6 weeks the first time and from there you can decide if 6 weeks works, or if you could go 7 or 8.


What if one of my tapes slips out?

In the case that this happens, feel free to reach out to the salon and ask for a quick fix. You can pretty much get in same day and it takes less than 15 minutes.

That’s It!

Now that you know exactly how to take care of your extensions, have fun with them! If you have any other questions or think I missed something, feel free to let me know. And if you’re in the DFW area, and want beautiful hair, come see me at Bigger Better Hair! I would love to make your hair dreams come true!



Hey guys! Thinking about Fall Hair Trends?  I wanted to share some of my favorite haircuts, colors, and styles I hope to see trending. 

Oh, and by the way, this is my first blog so let me know what you think!

First Up: Blunt Bobs

Blunt Bobs make your hair look healthier, stronger, and thicker! This cut gives your style a ton of texture and can look good on pretty much anyone. Here are a few other blunt bobs I am loving right now.

I love it straight, or wavy! There are so many style options with this cut, which is why I can see people wanting this hair style.

Fall Favorite: Fringe or Bangs

Bangs are always a fall trend, now that it is finally starting to cool down this is the perfect time to wear your hair down and get bangs!


With fringe or bangs, you can make a major style change, or an accent to your haircut. They can frame your face very well and compliment many different hair styles and face shapes.

Pops of Color

I am absolutely in love with the whole unicorn look that has been trending lately. If you want to come out of your comfort zone and show your personality through your hair, this is the perfect trend to follow.

Long Layers | Always on Trend

Long layers are always a go to haircut, in my opinion they look good on anyone with longer hair. They add character and movement to your style while it also livens up the haircut as well.

Layers frame the face and look so lovely after styling. Or they can help take some weight if your hair is naturally thick. Either way, layers can be as dramatic or subtle as you want which is why I love some of these looks from instagram.

Perfectly Straight

Beachy curls have been the trend for the last couple of years, but sometimes its just nice to have a straight hair day.

Pull out the oils and really take time to nourish and moisturize your hair before you put the straight iron to it. I always recommend using quality hair products to keep your hair from looking dry and damaged.


You may or may not have heard about Natural Beaded Row Extensions, a new technique that has been trending in California.  Our Skinny Beaded Weft Extensions are our take on this installation method, using our own wefts that are truly skinny wefts that pack a lot of hair on a discreet weft of hair.  In this article I will explain what the Natural Beaded Row method using our Skinny Beaded Weft Extensions are, and how we install them in our Dallas Hair Salon.

What are Skinny Beaded Weft Extensions?

Skinny Beaded Weft Extensions use custom sized wefts and a silicone lined extension bead to secure the weft to your hair. We then hide the beads and give a second layer of attachment using thread.  Depending on the look you’re going for we offer 4 different services for this method.

This type of extension method is best suited for those who would like to add volume and slight length and already have medium to thick hair. With that being said, the more hair you wear the more bulky it can get on your head.



NBR extension hair is reusable and can be can be reused multiple times. We recommend maintaining them every 4-6 weeks depending on your color frequency and how fast your hair grows. Most clients wear the same hair for 6 months, some longer depending on how well you take care of your hair.

During the maintenance appointment, we take them all out, shampoo you and the extensions and put them right back in.

What we Love

This method is great for someone with medium to thick hair who wants to add slight length and volume. We love our Skinny Beaded Weft Extensions because you can get very noticeable results with just a few wefts of hair.


Not so good

This method can be a bit more bulky on your head if your desired result needs several wefts.  (Example: Short to super long)


NBR extensions take anywhere from 1.5-2.5 hours to install depending on how much hair you have in.   Maintenance appointments take the same amount of time to remove and re-install the same wefts.


We offer 4 difference extension services depending on your desired look. Prices for this method range from $250-$1250 depending on the look that your service needs.

Based on the look you want and the hair you currently have we will suggest which of our five services will give you exactly what you’re looking for.


Sound good?

If you think this extension method is something you are interested in, we offer complimentary consultations to help guide you to which extension method would work best for you.

Feel free to call or text us to help setup a consultation appointment.  (214)734-6596





Working behind the chair as a stylist, I often get asked what the current Hair Style trends are in Dallas.  In this post, I am going to list what I am seeing and hearing clients ask for when it comes to 2019 color, cut, and hair extension trends.  

As always, let me know if you have any other ideas! If you are looking for a stylist in Dallas, I would love opportunity to make your hair Bigger or Better at our top rated Dallas Hair Salon. 



Color Trends

Icy blonde | Cool toned blondes are still in

If your goal is to have an icy blonde with no “yellow,” most people will need more than one process to remove all of the warmth in your hair. There’s two ways to achieve an icy blonde:

  • Low Processing & Slow Results – This is the ideal way to maintain the health of your hair. Set a goal color, and I will help you with a timeline. We can plan slowly lightening your hair in segments so we maintain a healthy blonde.
  • One Visit + Multiple Processes – If you are looking to achieve a major color change in one day, we need enough time for it. To do a major change in one visit, I can book multiple processes back to back for you so we can make it happen. For example, the blonde pictured above needed 3 back to back services, which came with a hefty price tag, but she wanted icy blonde in one day.

Bronde | For the Blondeish Brownish kind of girl

Bronde is personally my favorite color trend. It’s the perfect mix between blonde and brown.

This color is perfect for those who are currently blonde or brunette and are needing a change.

How to achieve: Book a “Balayage Partial” appointment and we can discuss what it would take to get to your future “bronde” color.

Lived In Balayage | The Best of Both Worlds

Lived in balayage isn’t necessarily a certain color, it’s customized to each person to add brightness 1-3 shades within your color and only needs to be touched up every so often.

How to achieve: Book a “Balayage Full” appointment so we have more time to balayage, and/or add a root color to customize a “lived in” look for you.



Cut & Style Trends

Blunt Bob

Loving this edgy blunt bob. It’s super on trend right now and I’m obsessed

Looking for a major change? We partner with Children With Hair Loss, a hair donation company who donates wigs to kids every year until they turn 18. If you are loving this cut as much as I am, book a hair cut appointment and let’s make a change!


How to achieve: To style yours like the picture above, I would suggest a round brush blowout, or a low temp flat iron to smooth your hair without taking the body out.  Style using Alterna Caviar CC Cream and Smoothing Gelee for form and smoothness.


Pr(lob)ably my favorite trend ever. Anytime someone comes in wanting a Lob, I’m convinced that I need one too. I might be one client away from getting the cut myself! .

How to achieve: It’s easy, book a haircut! Lobs look great straight or wavy, but for waves, I love a big barelled curling iron so it’s not “too curled.” Finish with Alterna Caviar Perfect Texture Spray and your waves look more undone than perfectly polished.

Textured Shoulder Length or Longer

Whether it’s shoulder length or longer, textured layers are in. They give movement and body and help hold your curls.

How to achieve: Let’s be honest, long hair is always in style. Current trends still show lots of movement and texture, so I definitely recommend a natural amount of layers and movement in long cuts. Not having enough movement in your long hair can take it from sexy to blah.

2019 Hair Extensions Trends

Skinny Hand Tied Extensions

Skinny hand tied extensions are perfect for adding thickness and a little bit of length. I wear them myself and they are one of my favorite extensions. They’re super low profile and make it easy when putting my hair up. For someone with normal to thick hair, they are definitely worth a try!

How to achieve: Before it’s time for your next “new hair” appointment, ask us about our Hand Tied Wefts to see if they would work for you! Check out my youtube video on our hand wefts!

Skinny Tape-Ins

Skinny Tape-Ins are best when wanting to fill in trouble areas or wanting a dramatic length/thickness change. They are also super low profile and are our most popular extension service.

How to achieve:

First book a consultation so your stylist can recommend the right service according to your needs. This service can be achieved in as little as 1-2hrs. Check out our video on Skinny Tape Extensions!

Hidden Crown Halo

Hidden Crown Halo Extensions are super on trend and are best suited for one who loves added length and thickness but doesn’t want to commit to wearing extensions full time. They can be thrown in anytime your style needs that extra “oomph.”


How to achieve: Schedule a consultation so your stylist can recommend the right hidden crown according to your needs. Once purchased, you can throw in and out to vamp up any style.




If we all were Kardashian’s with a stylist doing our hair everyday, clip in’s would be amazing.  But we’re not, and they aren’t cool anymore.  I mean, who hasn’t tried to do the perfect sections for a clip in, and experienced that clip-in headache?  If that’s what someone wants, we’re here to help you find the best set!  But in all honesty, if it comes to it, all of our stylists agree:  Hidden Crown Hair Extensions are the absolute best In&Out option of hair extensions!  There’s no comparison whatsoever.  Here are some things we love about Hidden Crown Halo Extensions, and tips from a Hidden Crown Hair Extensions Dallas Hair Stylist.


What is a Halo or Hidden Crown Extension?

One weft of hair that sits temple to temple using the shape of your head, your hair over the weft, and a nearly invisible wire that holds it in place from the top of your head.

If you have ever worn clip-in extensions, what makes them uncomfortable are the clips which grip on to your hair and the weight of the wefts pulls your hair.  Oh, and let’s not forget the constant concern of clips slipping from your hair.

Hidden Crown Halo extensions sit on your head comfortably, and can be installed super easily by even the most hair illiterate.  (That’s where we step in with our customization & tutorial service)

We offer complimentary consultations to help guide you to the best product from the brand that suits your hair type, length, and end goal.  Then, usually 2-3 days after ordering, we customize your halo at a separate appointment by perfectly sizing it, and cutting it for a perfect blend.  In the In&Out extension customization appointment we completely show you the “in’s and out’s” of wearing, styling, and installing your halo.  If, in the odd chance your halo needs a perfect color blend by one of our stylists, we will let you know at your customization appointment beforehand.  (This is very rare, btw.  99% of the time there is a perfect color match.  But we are a no-suprises salon!)   As with all of our hair extensions services, we guarantee color match, blending haircut, and resizing.


What to Expect

Hidden Crown Halo extensions are a great option if you are looking to quickly put on and take out your extensions on an “as needed” basis.  They can be worn daily without risk of damage and are very easy to install, and maintain.  In our experience, someone is either looking for salon installed, or in&out extensions, so this is something for you to consider about Hidden Crown’s.  They are the best option for someone looking to take in and out, but no in&out extension gives all the perks of salon installed extensions.


What Lengths are Available?

Halo / Hidden Crown Extensions come in 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, and 24″ long.  They also come in different densities, from a natural tapered end to a double density fullness.  Different brands offer different price points, color options, and halo styles.  In a free consultation appointment, we will show you the differences, talk out your needs, and show you exact prices for the halo that matches what you need.


Do you carry Halo’s in stock?

We keep different lengths, and densities in stock to help show you the differences.  Since there are so many lengths, densities, and color options, it is impossible to have every halo in stock at all times.  We do our best to expedite the delivery after order, and we normally can schedule your customization 3 days after your consultation.  Overnight shipping is an additional charge based on carrier rates.

Our name is Bigger Better Hair, so if you know us, we love Big Hair! We can’t recommend our favorite teasing brush enough.  The Spornette Little Wonder Brush is a teasing must have!  The bristles are a combination of boars hair and nylon, which give a great grip and tease with ease.  The other end of the brush comes to a point, and is perfect for sectioning your hair quick and easy.  Here we explain why we love the Spornette Little Wonder Brush, and why we recommend it to all hair extension clients.

spornette little wonder

Why we love it

Besides having the perfect name, Spornette’s Little Wonder Brush is a tried and true brush that’s not just good for teasing.  This hair extension friendly brush is nice and petite, and fits easily in your purse for on-the-go extension brushing and/or teasing for a night out and about.  This miracle brush is one of the first brushes that founder Walter Sporn debuted in the late 1950s, so you know it must be doing something right since it’s still around.

How to Use It

This brush is our secret weapon for nailing up-dos and Dallas worthy hairstyles because the tail of the brush is perfect for sectioning and grabbing hair.  The nylon and boar bristles perfectly tease to add bouncy volume.

If you’re wearing hair extensions, this on-the-go size brush has flexible bristles that you don’t have to worry about pulling or tugging on your extensions.

Start with dry hair and use the brush’s tail handle to section the top layer of hair from your crown into three or four sections. Lift one section in the air and use the brush to comb from top to bottom in short, quick strokes. Repeat steps for the other sections, and brush lightly over the top of hair. Pull hair into a ponytail or bun, add somehair spray, and behold your newly glammed-out ‘do.

Make a quick and easy change in your look with these up-style and fashion forward synthetic hair additions.  Mix and match the products with hair extensions to create even more glamorous looks.  Synthetic fibers mean easy to maintain since the styles do not require maintenance. 

Truth be told, not all of us are born with full, thick hair. Thin-haired ladies know that creating the perfect ponytail is no easy feat. If you have one of those days when no product seems to work in pumping up your hair volume, a ponytail hair extension is your next best bet. Ponytail hair extensions are one of the easiest ways to add fullness and length to fine or thin ponytails. They come in a variety of lengths and thickness to suit your current hair length and texture.


Ponytail hair extensions are great for a girl on the go, looking for a quick style accessory that dramatically adds to your ponytail.


We don’t recommend wearing a ponytail hair extensions every day, since that is not how they were designed.  Ponytail extensions are designed for on-the-go easy styles.  They are great for special occasions, or the occasional night out.


Ponytail extensions come in synthetic and human hair options.  They use a comb clip that hooks onto your own ponytail, and a few bobby pins for extra security.

How to Wear

Step 1: Prep

Prep your hair with volumizing products so your hair isn’t silky smooth before you start.  Dry shampoo, Texturizing spray, or hair powders are a great way to add grip and texture to your hair for extra volume.  It also helps ensure the clip on your ponytail extension stays secure into your own hair.  


Step 2: Ponytail

Use a strong elastic band and tightly secure your hair into a ponytail in your desired placement.  


Step 3: Add Hair Extensions

Hook the metal comb on the base of your ponytail extension directly into the elastic band of your ponytail.  Then, wrap hair around the base of your ponytail to secure it to your hair and hide any wefting at the base.

Want to know the secret to the best hair extensions that no one knows you’re wearing?  A perfect hair extensions customization service is the key to gorgeous hair extensions that blend perfectly into your own hair as if it is your own.


Clip in Hair Extensions Customization

In your consultation appointment, we will show you different types of clip-in hair extensions, or halo wire extensions that will best suit your needs.  Once you decide which is best for you, we will color match you to the closest color blend that matches your own hair.


From there, we will order the clip-in hair extensions and schedule a hair extensions customization appointment.  In this appointment, we will do whatever it takes to completely blend your new extensions into your own hair.  This includes cutting, coloring if necessary, and showing you how to properly wear and install them once you leave the salon.  If the hair extensions need specific sizing, we take care of this for you.  Customization appointments come with a tutorial, blending haircut, and styling them into your own hair.  Should your clip in extensions need additional hair color services,  a separate charge is necessary to cover the time and cost of color.


Professional Hair Extensions Customization

After we install your professional hair extensions, we include a complimentary customization blending haircut to blend your new hair extensions into your existing haircut.  We will also style your hair to perfectly match your gorgeous hair that was just installed.


Most professionally installed hair extensions do not need coloring to blend into your own hair, because we can order the extensions in quantities that match your multi-toned hair style if need be.

One of the most important things to having beautiful hair extensions, wigs, or clip-in hair extensions is the perfect color match so they blend into your own natural hair.  We specialize in hair extensions, wigs, and clip-in extensions and work with multiple brands so as to offer the perfect color match hair extensions to your own hair.   Here are a few things about the perfect color match hair extensions that we offer.

Do they need to be colored prior to installation?

We can (almost always) match your hair color using our color swatches, and we order the hair that is already pre-colored.  There are times for certain colors that require coloring the hair extensions before installing them.  While this is rare, this is something we are trained and experienced with doing so we can offer a perfect color match guarantee.

What if you have several tones in your hair?

Many times, we use multiple colors of hair extensions to create a perfect color match to your own hair.  In your hair extensions consultation, we will discuss the hair extensions do’s and don’ts so you are comfortable with the system that best suits your natural hair.  We will also match your color so we order the perfect color match prior to installation.

Color Match Guarantee

We stand behind our work by offering a perfect color match guarantee, and should there ever be something you feel doesn’t blend perfectly, we will always fix it.  This has yet to happen, but we ensure you the color match is nothing for you to be concerned with.

Can you change the color of hair extensions or wigs?

We definitely don’t recommend coloring hair extensions unless you absolutely have to.  The biggest reason is the hair has already been processed since it is usually from a dark haired ponytail that has been colored to get to its color you see when you purchase it.  Any additional coloring is additional chemical processing, which can decrease the soft quality of hair.  In times when it is absolutely necessary, we know which brands to work with and how to color the hair so as to not affect the quality.
