Roadtest: Showpony Hair Extensions

Desperately after a new ‘do? But can’t find the time (or budget) for a visit to the hairdresser?

Introducing Showpony Extensions – available online, ready-to-order anytime. They are your solution to a bad hair day, and are suitable for a night out on the town or a more casual day with friends.

Showpony have been regular fixture backstage at fashion weeks since 2009, including this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

The brand was launched in 2009 by ex-runway model Stephanie Mason. With an insider’s insight into the industry, Mason had seen a glaring gap in the market for quality hair extension products. She intended to fill it – using colour accurate, beautifully blended, long-lasting hair extensions of premium quality.

“We believe hair extensions should always look natural and we emphasise this by supplying premium products and supporting the increased demand and client development through specialised creative education, encompassing complete training and product knowledge,” Mason says.

For those not quite up to a DIY ‘do, Showpony Australia also provides hair extensions to salons around Australia. Head to: for more information.

Education for salon stylists:

Earlier this year, Showpony Australia launched its education program, dedicated to improving commercial success and providing artistic inspiration.

“Hair extensions are not just about volume and length anymore,” Mason explains. “They have become a fabulous fashion accessory which allows the consumer – via their hairdresser – to fill in gaps, create highlights, create a fringe, indulge in a non-committal colour change, fix a bad hair cut or inject an up style with volume!”

Our DIY experience:

We find out what Showpony Hair Extensions really feel, look and handle like by heading straight to the consumer.

Here’s what one Showpony devotee had to say:

“Showpony Hair Extensions are a great product. The clips are nice and thick, so they’re very easy to apply. The extensions themselves give me a lot of volume and blend perfectly with my natural hair. They’re also soft, silky and a true colour match”.

“I’ve always had an obsession with hair extensions and am very pleased with these from Showpony! Premium quality and a natural look – I loved the result”.
