What is the money piece & how to get it without any hair damage?

The money piece is a hair coloring technique that involves lightening the front sections of your hair to frame your face and create a contrast with the rest of your hair.

This style has become very popular because it's a great way to add some brightness and interest to your hair without getting highlights all over. To get the money piece, people usually go to a salon where a stylist will lighten the front strands of their hair. However, if you want to avoid hair damage or salon costs, you can have this hairstyle easily with hair extensions or a wig.

How to Get the hairstyle Without Dyeing Your Hair? 

If you’re not ready to dye your hair or want to try the money piece trend without the commitment, two small wefts of hair extensions that you can clip into the front of your hair or a wig with money piece highlights will do the trick in minutes without any hair damage. Here's how to do it:


1. Choose human hair extensions or wigs: Opt for products made from natural hair. Synthetic options can work, but natural hair wigs and human hair extensions provide a more authentic look and can be styled or dyed however you like.

2. Select the right color: Choose a contrasting color of hair extensions for your money piece. If you like colored highlights, consider getting platinum human hair extensions and dyeing them your favorite color.

We recommend that you choose either invisible tape-ins or invisible clip-ins to achieve the most seamless blended money piece.Check out our available colors here:

3. Styling: Style the wig or extensions as you would with your natural hair. You can use heat tools to create waves, curls, or keep it straight. Experiment with messy buns, ponytails, and other hairstyles to see how the money piece highlights change your look. 

Here's a tutorial on how you can style the money piece with hair extensions:
