Hair Extensions…Which One’s are best for you?

Posted by | June 18, 2013 | Uncategorized | No Comments

About 75% of my brides want longer, fuller, thicker hair for their wedding.  They always ask me about which types of hair extensions work best for them.  There are many different types of extensions, but my two favorites to work with are clip in extensions, and tape in extensions.

If your hair is short or fine and needs that little extra boost in length or volume, then you should try hair extensions. Hair extensions are the best way to create that much needed fullness without your styles looking tacky or artificial. However, you do need to choose a good quality set of hair extensions to accomplish this and wow everyone with the fabulousness of your styles.

Clip in hair extensions are an affordable and effective way of creating the illusion of body and length in your looks, but what are the best ones to use?

With clip in hair extensions, you get wefts of hair that are lined with comb-like clips along the top. These clips latch onto your natural hair easily and can be removed when the style is no longer needed. Different types of clip in hair extensions provide different results, for example, synthetic clip ins are cheaper but the result won’t be as amazing as if you were to use natural clip in extensions.

The best clip in hair extensions are those that use quality human hair in each weft. Only this ensures that your styles will look absolutely natural and utterly fab. Human hair clip in extensions have a lot of advantages. For one thing you can style the hair as easily as your own, unlike synthetic hair extensions which have a different weight and consistency. With quality human hair you are able to blow dry, straighten, curl, wash, cut and color the extensions to your heart’s content (as long as it looks good). The higher the quality of hair, the longer the clip ins will last and the better the results will be.  Ask your stylist to match your hair with the best possible texture and color for your hair and event!!

Of course, you need to take into account that high quality human hair clip in extensions are pricier than others so be prepared to invest!

The other type of extension I recommend are tape in extensions.

What are Seamless hair extensions?

Well they are just what they say really, in place of the usual clip in a hair weft there is a piece of double sided tape, designed to be undetectable when placed on the scalp. Seamless Tape hair extensions can be washed and styled as normal, you can use your regular hair products, they are designed to be lightweight and to not drag or hurt, so they are suitable for those with fine hair. Tape hair extensions are semi permanent and can last up to 5-6 months dependent on specific circumstance. They are simple to apply and even easier to take out. You can reuse them over and over.

Reusable seamless hair extensions are pre taped and made from high quality Remi cuticle 100% human hair. It requires no adhesives on the scalp, no weaving, braiding, clips, bonding, chemicals or messy removal.  This system is completely seamless with no bumps. You can wear your hair up or down. Ideal for people with thinning hair and for adding length or volume or simply adding highlights without chemicals.  The best part is that they are reusable and completely safe on the hair.  These extensions are best suited for those who want longer thicker hair on a more permanent basis.
