All About Hair Extensions

When you think of hair extensions what is the first thing that comes to mind? For some people it is quality, for some it is price, and for some it is about manageability or maybe all of these things. Hair extensions are a great accessory to add to your style and overall look. It is all about your lifestyle and what suits your needs and desires.

Most of us want hair extensions because we are unhappy with our own natural hair in one way or another; for some of us our hair is too thin, or not long enough. We want that long and luxurious hair we always see the movie stars wear in the movies or music videos. Whatever the case may be, hair extensions are a great tool to enhance your look and your confidence. Like the say, ‘Your hair is your biggest accessory,’ or ‘It’s the crown you never take off.’ It is important to know what to look for when you are on the search for a hair stylist to perform a hair extension service, whether it be for a special event or day to day wear. The options and possibilities are almost endless! It is important to schedule a consultation before getting any hair extension service to make sure you are getting what you want and expect. Some guests already come in knowing what they want, but it is always best to consult with a professional so that you can make sure you are getting the best option for your hair.

Lifestyle is a major factor in determining what type of hair extension is best for you and your hair. If you are active into sports like swimming, running, or roller derby you may not be an ideal candidate for hair extensions. Excessive sweating can cause certain types of hair extensions to slip and ultimately cause discomfort, or the hair extensions may not last as long as desired. It is important to discuss with your stylist your lifestyle and tell them how much time you want to spend styling your hair.  At the end of the day, you are adding more hair to your head, so extra time, care, and products will be required to maintain your look and integrity of your hair.

So how do you know what hair extensions to choose? Your hair stylist should be able to guide you as to what would be best for you after the consultation. There are fusion keratin bonded hair extensions, I tip or bead hair extensions, Tape in hair extensions, there are also hair pieces that you can add for extra thickness either alone or in addition to your other hair extensions. There are also lace front wigs available for people who may not be the ideal hair extension candidate. Think about how you normally style your hair and what you want to be able to do with it. Make sure you discuss this with your stylist so they are able to match you with the hair extension product that would be suited best for you and your lifestyle.
