Hair extensions mean differnt things to different people. For some people it is just a fashion statement on a night out. For others, it adds style and luxury and for others they boost their confidence. They can be used to add length and volume when needed.
The general rule is that with three inches of hair, you can get extensions in but I have done extensions for people with just on inch of hair.
They can be braided, glued in, taped in, woven in, crotched in or clippe in. They come in all types of textures, colours, length, and even different weights.
They can be used to creat a balayage effect, highlight effect or lowlight effect. They can also be used to cover bald patches and hide general hair loss, something which I am really passionate about. I will save the topic of hair loss extensions for another blog and my next column in the local womens magazine.
There are currently so many different methods and styles of hair extensions that navigating through it all and getting the right style that fits your hair type and style can be like searching for a needle in a hay stack. With so many people claiming to be hair extensionist finding the right person or salon to insert them can also be very tricky.
If you have ever envied a celebrity's hair the chances are that they probably have extensions in (Shhhhh). It is not your fault if you don't wake up every morning with perfect locks! It takes hard work, dedication and can be very expensive. The aim of our hair extension blog is to provide information on hair extensions. I will next look at some of the questions to ask when selecting hair extensions.
