Transform Your Look With Hair Extensions

Hair extensionsHair extensions can enhance your look, taking you from drab to fab instantly. Worn by celebrities, movie stars and entertainers, these flowing hairpieces can enhance any woman’s look.

There are many types of hairpieces available, and you can find pieces that complement your individual style.

Hair Extensions for Long Hair

If you have long hair, extensions can add body and fullness to your existing tresses. Hair extensions can make limp hair appear healthier and add volume to lifeless locks. Hair extensions come in lengths of up to 30 inches and can be cut and styled just as you would your natural hair.

Applying human hairpieces to your own hair is simple. There are several techniques that stylists use to apply extensions. Bonding is the process of using adhesives to attach the human hair pieces to your natural hair. Fusion is a similar process in which the stylist will bond the hair to the tips of your natural hair with heat styling tools.

Weaving is the process in which the stylist braids the existing hair and sews the extensions onto the hair. This form of extension installation last longer than most other forms. The average weaved extensions last for up to eight weeks.

Clip in extensions are temporary form of hair extensions. Each individual extension, called a weft, is attached to clips that slide into your natural hair. You can simply slide these in and out each day to change your look.

Hair Extensions for Short Hair

If your hair is short, you can use hairpieces to add both length and body to your hair. Extensions are great for trying out a new style without altering your own natural hair. If your hair is short, you can go for long, flowing locks in a variety of styles. The possibilities are endless with human hair weaves. For short hair, you can use any combination of installation techniques for your extensions. For temporary styles, bonding is the preferred method. This is usually used for special events such as weddings, proms and parties.

Try Out Texture

If your hair has always been straight, human hair weaves are the best way to try out new curly tresses, wavy locks or coiled curls. Instead of changing your own hair, simply add in human hair extensions and try on a new texture. Human hair can be heat styled, washed and cut, so feel free to test out a variety of styles and textures.

Hair weaves come in a range of colors and are excellent for testing out new looks. Go bold with blonde or rev up your look with fiery red. Human hair weaves can also be dyed to match your own natural hair color. Each extension is coded with a number that matches a natural hair color.

Hair weaves can instantly transform your look, giving you fabulous hair that looks great in any setting. Whether you are preparing for a night out or simply going to work, hair extensions for long hair will give you an instant new persona.

It’s good that you point out that hair extensions can add length to a woman’s hair. My wife wants to have long hair, so I’m considering taking her to a salon to get extensions. I’m going to look for a good hair salon in my area that does hair extensions.

It’s great that you talked about how hair extensions improve your looks. Recently, my wife mentioned she has an important business meeting in a few weeks. She’s thinking of ways to make a great first impression, so I’ll be sure to tell her about hair extensions. Thanks for the information on hair extensions and their types.
