Pros and Cons Of Halo Hair Extensions

Halo hair extensions have become a hot trend, capturing the attention of hair enthusiasts worldwide. But before you take the leap and invest in Halo extensions, it's vital to understand both the advantages and disadvantages they offer. In this blog post, we'll explore the pros and cons of Halo hair extensions, giving you all the insights you need to make an informed decision.

Pros of Halo Hair Extensions

Less damage, comfortable to wear

Unlike other types of extensions, halo hair extensions don’t involve any chemicals or adhesive to secure them with your natural hair. This means you can enjoy the benefits of longer and fuller hair without worrying about potential harm

Moreover, Halo extensions are lightweight. You won't feel like there's a heavy weight pulling on your head or weighing down your hair when wearing halo extensions. Think of it like wearing a headband, but in reverse.

Pros of Halo hair extensions

Easy to install at home

Halo hair extensions consist of a weft of hair attached to a transparent wire. The weft of hair should hang down, while the wire rests on top of your head. Some suppliers also sew the hair clips to prevent the extensions from slipping out of your natural hair. You don’t have to get the hairdresser to install halo extensions for you. You can do it at home through some simple steps.

Easy to maintain

Halo hair extensions are considered temporary hair extensions. They are designed to be easily installed and removed, making them convenient for temporary use and maintaining. With Halo extensions, you can remove them and wash them separately from your natural hair. Moreover, you can store them in the storage box to prevent them from tangling and damage.

Cons of Halo Hair Extensions

Not many supplier

Although halo extensions bring so many big advantages, there are not many suppliers there. So, you won’t have other choices out of some common names: Halo Couture, Luxy Hair, or Zala. A limited number of suppliers may result in a narrower range of options in terms of hair types, colors, lengths, and textures. Moreover, when there are only a few suppliers available, it can lead to increased prices due to limited competition.

Don’t suit for short hair

Halo hair extensions are designed to be worn by attaching a long string weft of hair to the natural hair. This weft needs a certain amount of natural hair to cover it and blend seamlessly. If you have short hair, the halo extensions will become more visible. Then, you cannot get the desired look.

However, it doesn't mean that you cannot use halo extensions if you have short hair. To ensure, you should go to the nearest hair extensions store to try the halo extensions on. 

Cons of Halo hair extensions

Only work for back head

Halo hair extensions include a weft hair attached with an elastic string. They are designed to wear at the back of the head. If you want to increase the volume at the top of your head or the sides, you should install clip-in hair extensions.


In making a decision about hair extensions, it is essential to weigh the pros and cons and consider your specific needs and preferences. If you prioritize minimal damage, comfort, and ease of installation and maintenance, Halo hair extensions could be a great option. However, if you have short hair or desire volume in areas other than the back of your head, you may need to explore alternative options such as clip-in hair extensions.
