5 Top Tips For Great Hair Extensions

Article by Suzanne Greenfield

Nowadays, everyone is wearing hair extensions. Celebrities are showcasing their new hair on the red carpet and hair salons across the country are taking advantage of offering hair extensions as a lucrative service. Hair extensions are so popular today as they offer women the opportunity to change their look instantly. Hair extensions can really update your style and can give you the length, thickness and texture you’ve always wanted out of your own hair!

Hair extensions can give you the styling flexibility that you’ve always wanted and really help to enhance your beauty. However, the range of different hair types and application methods really can be overwhelming and make it difficult to make a decision as to which extensions really are the best for you.

Here are a few tips to help you make the right decision when choosing hair extensions:

Firstly, you need to think about the kind of hair you want. This decision will be based on factors such as your budget, lifestyle and the sort of results you are looking for. Real human hair extensions tend to be favoured over synthetic hair as it looks and behaves like your own hair and blends in perfectly. It is also easier to style and tends to last longer. However, it is more expensive than synthetic hair due to certain advantages.

Next you need to think about your preferred application method. The type of hair you choose will largely dictate which method you go for. The method you choose needs to fit in with your lifestyle and personal preferences, for example some techniques will not work well on a client who regularly swims or exercises. Your stylist will advise you which method will best meet your needs and fit your budget during the consultation stage.

It is important to visit a reputable salon and have a qualified hair extension specialist fit your extensions to minimise any problems or discomfort. Again, the method and type of hair you choose will dictate which salon you visit. Most salons will promote one method in particular and train staff to be able to administer this method. Use the consultation stage to check the stylist’s experience and qualifications and request before and after photographs as proof of previous work. Once you are happy that the stylist is confident in what they’re doing then you can go ahead and get a quote.

During the consultation stage you will decide on what colour and length you want. The stylist will match the extension hair with your own hair perfectly so that the hair looks as naturally as possible. The biggest give-away that you are wearing hair extensions is that the colours don’t match and it is obvious where your own hair ends and the extension hair starts.

Finally, always adhere to maintenance and aftercare guidelines to keep your extensions looking great for as long as possible. Most extensions will cost a fair amount of money so make sure you look after them properly. Also, if you had your extensions fitted at a salon, make sure you go back to that same salon to have them removed. Never try to remove them at home as this can cause damage to your natural hair.
