HAIR EXTENSIONS EXPLAINED – ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
Hair extensions are amazing! They can transform your hair from short and wispy into a truly magnificent mane in just a few hours and they are certainly no longer just for WAGs, Hollywood A listers and pop stars.
Hair extensions are now mainstream and can take your hair to new lengths and give it that additional volume you’ve always dreamed about. But before you go ahead with extensions, there are a few things you need to know….
Be sure to use a specialist
Not every hairdresser knows how to apply hair extensions, and in the wrong hands they can cause terrible damage to your natural hair. Always use a professional and if you’re unsure, ask to see evidence of their work and their training. Any reputable salon will offer you a consultation before you proceed.
Go for the best extensions you can afford
There’s no getting away from it, extensions can be expensive. If you’re only looking to change up your style once in a while, maybe for a night out, then clip in hair extensions will be fine. But remember these can’t be worn all the time – if you want something more permanent you’ll need to go for another system which is more of an investment but will give stunning results for months on end.
Have your hair extensions customized
The key to believable, natural looking extensions is customization. Your stylist should be able to colour match them to your own hair and this is worth doing even if you just want clip in hair extensions. Blending them with your hair cut and colour will mean they will complement your natural hair perfectly.
Hair extensions are fabulous and once you’ve had them you’ll wonder how you ever managed before! So whether you’re 25, 45 or 65, there’s no reason you can’t have your hair lengthened and volumized with a gorgeous set of extensions.
