When hair extensions first came out they had a tendency to look cheap, unless you were a celebrity working with professionals. Thankfully they have come a long way and you don’t need to be rich to make a high quality purchase to set you up for your night out.
Will you look pretty with hair extensions? Of course you will, with the options that you now have available to you and the price points being inclusive of everyone you can purchase a high quality set of hair extensions that will look and feel just like your natural hair.
The best way to make sure your hair extensions look like the real deal?
Whether it is for a night out, or you’re looking for regular use, there are plenty of options when it comes to hair extensions these days. From synthetic hair to horse hair to real hair, you have a much higher chance of finding a color that matches your natural (or currently dyed) hair color than you would have when hair extensions first came to the fore.
If you want your extensions to look like the rest of your hair, then you have got to buy extensions made from human hair. Because it’s just like your own hair you can wash it, blow-dry it, straighten it and style it without worrying about any damage.
There are now many options when it comes to how they are put in your hair, too. You can choose from adhesive, clip in, elastic band, headband, weaving, wrap, and they even come ready to wear.
You can actually buy any type of the above and still leave the house with an all-natural look, it’s about making sure you’ve got them in right and then styling your hair accordingly. Clip ins are actually the easiest to put in and there are plenty of YouTube videos to walk you through the other types, too. If it’s your first time it’s highly recommended that you give some a watch. If you can afford a professional, then that might be an option when it comes to adhesives and weaves.
You don’t have to use every piece in the pack and you should try to leave space between them so that your natural hair comes through and blends.
Your choice of style can make or break your hair extension experience. Add extensions in layers. If you’re curling your hair, then mix the extensions with your natural hair.
You can also get them in any length, from about 2.5 inches right up to 24 inches. They also come in straight, wavy or curly so that you can match them to your hair type as well as your hair color. You don’t have to stick to natural colors either, there are plenty of bright and fun colors for you to experiment with if you enjoy taking a risk.
The key to a natural look is making sure that your color match is spot on. Don’t try and match the extension to the root, that isn’t where it sits! Match it to the ends of your hair.
