HOW TO: Extension Placement Tip From Antonio Corral Calero

Maggie Mulhern | November 25, 2013 | 8:34 AM

Antonio Corral Calero of Moroccanoil spends a lot of time creating breathtaking finishes for fashion shows and editorial work. He has learned that extensions frequently play an important role in many of the looks, but rarely does he have time to bond or even clip the wefts as instructed. Instead, Calero bunches the wefts together and simply pins them in the hair, dropping some of the natural hair over the bunched area to hide the top of the wefts. "This can actually add even more volume where needed," he says. Calero adds that it is important that the extensions have similar, if not the same, texture as the hair. He spends much of the time prepping the wefts, using the same products on both the natural hair and extensions.

HOW-TO: Before and After Using Hairtalk Tape-In Extensions

Alison Alhamed | September 20, 2017

MODERN’s Editor in Chief Alison Alhamed recently cut off quite a bit of length from her over-processed ends, which took her long lengths up to a just-past-the-shoulder lob. Although her number-one goal was a return to healthier hair, the change left her feeling a little uneasy. So she called upon Hairtalk Master Educator Alicia Iannone to transform her balayaged lob with face-framing money pieces into a healthy, bright beige-y blonde that is completely seamless.
