Wigs and weaves are all the rage right now, but what about clip-ons? This week Lumka shows you how to rock a mean sleek clip-on ponytail.

Sleek and sexy, a ponytail is a great way to add length to your hair without the strain of putting on a weave or the expense of a lace wig.

Our favourites, Rihanna and Leigh Ann Pinnock love a good clip in: here’s how you can get their look.

Make sure you get the right extensions. Whether you’re getting a clip-on pony, bun or bangs, make sure the colour and texture of the extensions match your hair. Mismatched hair looks messy.
