Long Hair Extensions
Long hair extensions are a quick way to alter the length, fullness, texture, and color of your locks. You don't have to wait years for your hair to grow, and they give you a chance to play with what looks good and what kind of maintenance you have time for.
Types of Extensions
Hair extensions can be either synthetic or made from human hair. They can be clipped on, bonded, glued, or wefted against your natural strands.
Professional Attachment and Removal
Because they are meshed with your natural hair, it's pretty clear that you should get a professional to attach and remove any pieces that require more than being clipped on.
Contact your local salons for information and request a stylist with references who's work you can see photos of.
Caring for Your New Hairstyle
Styling options for long hair extensions are sometimes complicated. It's important to take gentle care of them. Washing, curling, ironing, and drying hair on lower heat settings is recommended at the very least.
Ask for detailed instructions of specific extensions before application to be sure that they can withstand your styling tools and techniques.
