    Hello,

    My hair dresser has suggested that I get hair extensions for my wedding. My hair is extremely fine and hard to grow out. Has anyone had hair extensions? If so, what would you recommend?

    Thank you!

    -Stacey

      I have very fine hair also! It doesn't hold curl or volume! Well unless I have a hairdresser do it! My sister is a hairdresser so she always does my hair. I am having extensions put in my hair for our wedding. Just because of heat and humidity my hair will fall flat. I'm keeping it down so we're putting in extensions. I can't tell you what kind, I will ask her, all I know is that she is getting them from the place that only cosmetologists can get them, and I'm getting them at cost a steal!

        I think the thing I am afraid of, is having the extensions ruin my hair. I know that there are a few different types, I dont exactly want to glue them in either

          I would highly recommend you get real hair extensions and not synthethic hair extensions because they tend to be way too shiny and become obvious that they are fake. I put in some extensions on a really good friend of mine and she had shoulder length hair so I used a bag of long hair and half a bag of medium hair so it would give the illusion of having long layers and she looked fabulous. I glued hers in with some really tacky glue they sell at the beauty supply store which is Anan's Beauty Supply. they even sell a product that you can put in when you are ready to take them off so your hair won't get damaged. My friend looked so beautiful! And to be honest I think we only spent $75 for the 1 1/2 bag of hair, glue, and glue remover and it lasted her for a little over a week. She even had her long hair for most of her honeymoon in hawaii. I highly recommend them as they are not hard to put in at all.

            Oh don't get glue honey! I second getting real hair. You can do anything you plan on doing w/ your hair (color, everything). get the clips! If they are put in right you won't even know they are clips and then you can take them out at the end of the day. My sister (the hairdresser) has her own set that when she wants long hair she can have long hair and then you can take them out at the end of the day. they cost the same amount

              G'Day Stacey,
              I would highly recommend getting some 100% Human Clip In extensions.

              Heres a thread I started.

              You can have long hair one day and your normal hair the next without damaging your hair in anyway :)

                I've had the "bond" hair extensions twice and I would NOT recommend them for a destination wedding. They would be a nightmare around the beach and pool. I'm considering getting extensions for the wedding but they would definitely be clip-in ones, like the other ladies said.

                  I sooo want to get the clip ins. Were they easy to put in yourself?

                    I've tried clip ins, but where my hair is so fine and thin, you can really notice when they are in!!

                      I had the bonded hair extensions for my wedding. I didnt have any problems with them at all. I went swimming every day in the ocean for two weeks, and they were fine. I also have baby fine hair and left them in for several months, and it didnt ruin my hair at all.
