Tips On Choosing A Hair Extension Specialist

Hair extensions are a great way of changing your look without having to wait months and months for your hair to grow. Lots of women long for long, luscious locks but simply can’t get their hair to grow longer than shoulder-length. This can be really frustrating, and since hair typically grows only a miserly ½ inch a month you could be waiting a long time to get the hair you really want.

This is why a lot of people opt for hair extensions to give them the look they want instantly. Once you have made the decision to have hair extension you need to choose a stylist you can trust to achieve the best results for your lifestyle, hair type and desired results.

As with most things in life, with hair extensions you really do get what you pay for. If you want the most realistic extensions that are going to last the longest without causing any damage to your natural hair then you need to be prepared to potentially pay a lot of money. You can do extensions on the cheap by compromising on the quality of the hair and the health of your natural hair, but it really isn’t worth it. You want your extensions to look like your own hair so you need to opt for real human hair and not synthetic hair which looks cheap and tacky.

With hair extensions you need to be prepared to make a commitment. Not only will the application process cost you a considerable amount of money if you want it to look good, it also takes many hours (in some cases you will be sat in the chair for a good 5 hours!) and you will also need to make regular maintenance trips to the salon every 6 weeks or so to ensure that everything is ok with the extensions.

Since you are paying a lot of money you want to make sure that the job is done properly. To find the best salon and stylist for you, you need to research your local area and ask for recommendations from people you know that have had extensions put in. The best way to find a good stylist is on another person’s good recommendation so make sure you ask around.

You need to have done your homework on what sort of extensions you want and your preferred method of attachment as most salons will only have facilities for a certain method of extensions. You need to choose a salon and a stylist who has experience with the kind of extensions you are looking for and book in for a free initial consultation. During the consultation the stylist should always make an assessment of your hair to see if it is suitable for hair extensions and talk to you about your lifestyle and may have valuable comments to make of things you haven’t ever considered before. For example, if you lead an active lifestyle in terms of sport, extensions may take up more of your time than you are willing to give up, and you also need to understand that extensions will not last as long if you are the sort of person who washes their hair a lot.

A good hair extension specialist should discuss the various types of hair that can be used and recommend the most appropriate method of application for your lifestyle. It is likely that a stylist will specialise in one method of attachment so it is important to find out which one your stylist has experience in.

The lifetime and care of the hair extensions should also be discussed during the consultation. Depending on the type of extensions used, the length of time they will last will vary. Care of extensions is very important as good care can help to extend the lifetime period. The biggest threats to hair extensions are heat from hair driers and other heated appliances, over-frequent washing and vigorous brushing.
