There are two main types of Long Hair Extensions
- Synthetic Hair Extensions which are made out of synthetic fibers. This type of Hair Extension is definitely the most affordable but heat cannot be applied to most synthetic fibers causing some inconvenience if a person needs to use hair appliances like hair straighteners or curlers.
- Human Hair Extensions tend to be the favored type of Hair Extensions because they look and feel a lot more natural than the synthetic kind as they are actually made from real hair. Human Hair Extensions are usually more expensive then the synthetic ones, it really depends on your budget and the look you are aiming for.
A few years ago it was thought that only rich person’s could afford Long Hair Extensions, but over the years they have become much more affordable and practical for everyday consumers.
There are two main ways to get Long Hair Extensions
- Beauty Salon Extensions, they can last up to six months, however be prepared as there are some specific care needs involved such as using “loop brushes” that don’t pull the hair and special shampoos that will not break down the bonds, and over time the hair can become matted. It is important to shop around and find a reputable Beauty Salon who is highly qualified to apply Hair Extensions, in the consultation, discuss how the extensions will be attached, possible side effects and what you will need to take care of your Long Hair Extensions.
- Temporary Hair Extensions for special occasions like weddings, parties and portraits, are becoming very popular. Long Hair Extensions are great for up style hairdo’s like a ponytail or curled up style to give the appearance of more hair. The great thing about Temporary Hair Extensions is that they can be matched or dyed to your exact hair color and clip in easily under your own hair to give you a super sexy look for that special occasion.
