Hi, I bought the hair extentions at a beauty store that we have here in Northern Alberta called Sally's beauty supplies. There were also at a few other hair salons that I saw hair extensions at. I know Jessica Simpson has a hair extension line. I am sure if you drop by a nice hair salon they should have something. I think there are a couple different type you can get, synethic and real human hair, the ones I bought were the human hair and the brand was named euronext collection. I am definatly not a hair extension expert by any means. My hair is longer to begin with but when you curl it, it gets a lot shorter and I always wanted really long hair for my wedding. The hair extension kit that I bought had 10 pieces which inluded a 8 inch weft, a 7 inch weft , a 6 inch weft, a 5 3/4 inch weft, 4-1 1/2 inch wefts and 2 one inch wefts for color testing. The lady at the salon only used the 8 inch weft and the 7 inch weft. I bought a colour that was the closets to my hair color but about a week before I left I was getting my hair coloured anyways so I brought in the extension kit and the match up my colour to the extension colour, my hair was originally similar to the extensions so it was nothing too drastic.
I was somewhat please with them at first they looked great but by the time I got back to my room and was about to leave for my ceremony we had to re-curl the ends. I found the ends didn't curl as well as I wanted them to. And I actually pinned them up a litttle before our reception cause the curl was really coming out. I am not sure if this was due to the humidity or the amount of hair spray that was weighing them down or the brand of extensions.
I had a friend that got married last year and she bought a synthetic brand extension and her curls never came out, hers we also not as long as mine were either. My suggestion to you would be to test them out first before your wedding day or talk to the salon about a good brand. I never did now wishing I kind of did.
It won't let me unload upload pictures. Can I e-mail you some pics of the hair?
