Hair Extensions: Before and After

Hardly anyone is blessed with the long, luscious tresses they deeply desire, which is why hair extensions are such a treat.

If we can use makeup to enhance our facial features in a way that we choose, why should the same rules not apply to our hair? For decades we have chosen to have our hair snipped and styled, colored and curled now we have the opportunity to make it longer and thicker. There is absolutely no way anyone should pass up the opportunity to have the hair they want, when they want it.

Hair Extensions Before and After

It is a simple equation really. Before extensions, your hair will be of a specific length and it will be at its natural thickness (or thinness, whichever way you choose to look at it). After extensions, your hair will be as long and voluminous as you could possibly wish. The great thing about these extensions is that they are designed to be undetectable. They can be manufactured from authentic human hair or a synthetic material that is physiologically similar.

Attaching the Extensions

Depending on the length, texture and amount of hair in the extension, it can be attached through netting, fusion, braids of clips. Each of these different attachments comes with its own set of pros and cons. In general, smaller extensions are best attached using clips while fusion extensions are designed for an almost full head of hair. Deciding on any particular extension depends solely on the color and texture of your own hair, as well as how much you are willing to spend.

The Cost of Hair Beauty

Prices of hair extensions are fairly flexible. They can range from $10 per clip in to a whopping $2000 for a full head of human hair. Quite often, people who wish to accentuate their own hair will opt for human hair which can be dyed to suit their natural hair color. Cheaper, multi-colored clip ins are all the rage with people hoping to emulate certain urban and alternative fashion trends.

Choose DIY or Salon Styling

Clip-in extensions are completely DIY. These can easily be clipped into the hair just below the crown and removed without any fuss.

This type of extension is particularly useful for a quick styling fix. All other extension types need to be attached professionally by salon stylists. The more permanent, salon quality extensions do not require immediate removal after a night out.

Hair extensions can definitely get costly, its just best to do your own research or consult with a stylist. Sometimes you can throw money away by continuously opting to go with cheaper extensions instead of spending a little more for better quality hair. Then on the flip side you could invest money for good hair and the quality is also bad! When in doubt ask around!
