Using Hair Extensions

Haircut Styles presents the Topic: Using Hair Extensions

For those who desire long, luscious hair, but don’t want to wait months for their locks to grow, hair extensions can be the perfect solution. The first thing to consider when you decide to get these additional pieces is what kind of hair extension suits you best. Although there are many kinds of hair extensions available, two types stand out as the most popular options among stylists. First, there are individual strand extensions.

This involves taking small sections of natural or artificial hair and fusing it to your own hair through weaving, gluing, or heat fusion. These types of hair extensions can last for several months and are considered semi-permanent. In contrast, a more immediate option is to use clip-in hair extensions. Many of these can be applied simply on your own without the aid of a professional stylist. However, clip in extensions cannot be left in hair for an extended period of time.

Regardless of what application method you choose, be sure to get extensions that match well with your natural hair. This means choosing the right color and texture so that extensions blend seamlessly. Additionally, consider the type of material you want your extensions made from. The most cosmetically pleasing options are those made from real human hair. However, some synthetic options can look nearly identical to the real thing.
