Hair extensions have become increasingly popular amongst women who are looking for a quick way to achieve longer locks. Waiting for your hair to grow out can be a tedious process but extensions can give you longer hair in an instant, which is especially ideal if you have a special event coming up.

Hair extensions look completely natural

You may have come across a number of stories that indicate hair extensions will look fake because they’re made with synthetic materials but this is not true. Top-quality hair extensions are made with real human hair, giving you the most natural-looking results. Hair extensions can also be customised so that they match your natural hair.

Hair extensions are also great for saving time in the mornings as you can easily style them or clip them in for a fresh new look in an instant.

Installing your hair extensions

When it comes to hair extensions, you will always get exactly what you pay for. This is true in terms of buying the extensions and how you choose to apply them.

Top quality human hair extensions at EH Hair & Extensions salon do cost a little more but this is for a good reason. Virgin hair has not been treated and is made with real human hair. This means that it will last longer and will look the most natural too. There are cheaper options available but extensions that are made with synthetic materials won’t last nearly as long and won’t look as natural.

For the application of your hair extensions, clip-in extensions are the only type that you should be applying yourself. Every other type of extension should be applied by an experienced professional if you want it to look like your own hair. When hair extensions are applied incorrectly, you will be able to see the bonds and they won’t blend seamlessly into your natural hair either. The additional cost of having a professional apply your extensions is well worth it.

Types of hair extensions

There are several different types of hair extensions for you to choose from, including:

Bonded extensions

Bonded extensions require heat to attach keratin bonds to your natural hair. The extensions will be applied just before the root so that your hair can still move naturally. Bonded hair extensions can last up to 6 months.

Sew-in extensions

These wefts will be sewn into your braids with the help of needle and thread and are best suited to thick or curly hair.

Tape-in extensions

Tape-in hair extensions are by far the most modern type of extension. The weft will be attached to your natural hair using single or double-sided tape. This method is much safer than bonded extensions as it doesn’t require any heat.

If you are unsure about which hair extensions are right for you, book a consultation with a reputable salon that specialises in extensions as they will be able to give you the best guidance.
