Hair Extensions?

Recommended Posts

I called one of the Salon's in my town to see if they could try putting the clip in ones for me, just so I can see what it looks like. When I tried putting them in myself I hate big bumps everywhere, and it looked silly! I am also getting a "micro-trim" every 4 weeks until my wedding, so my hair stays as healthy as possible, hopefulling making it grow longer *fingers crossed*

I want extensions because I don't think my hair is going to grow out long enough before, but I don't want it to look stupid if I have my sister try and she doesn't know what she's doing.
Some people can easily do it themselves, but I have really thin hair and have a hard time getting right, so I have my sis do it and it looks great!!!! If you get them I would suggest maybe having the salon put them in and bring your MOH or one of the girls so they can show them just how to do it!

I have booked Suzanne Morel in Cabo to do my hair, I am going to e-mail her and see what she thinks of clip in extentions for my hair. I plan on either wearing it down or half down, so I don't see it being a problem!

I recently had hair extensions (I have very fine/ short hair). My best friend is a hairdresser and needed a model. I lked them, however mine were very long and were hard to manage (very dry). They were real hair, not sure what the deal was. I had them for 3 months, no damage. It depends on how they are put in. They used protein glue for mine. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip. That's a good idea to bring the MOH with to my hair appointment. I am going to have to get my hair and extensions dyed before we go down anyways, since no bride wants skunk hair on her big day :)

I had a low centered do, and I didn't have any problems with them slipping, with headaches, or with them being seen.  I love mine and use them for special occasions still to this day.  I've used them about 5 times since my wedding for updo's, or just when I wanted more volume with my hair down.  If you have short hair, you might be better off with the real extensions though...my hair is as long/longer than my extensions, so I use them for volume only.

I would definitely recommend the clip in human hair extensions.  I have two pairs, for when my hair color changes, and I love them.  Nobody ever realizes that they are extensions until I tell them.  I wear them frequently, and have worn them in two weddings.  I plan to wear them for my own wedding in Nov.  They are great for wearing hear down, but make updos look even better as well.  I went to a wig shop where they custom make them for you.  They were definitely worth the money.

I am looking into getting these and reading on some of these threads has helped.  Does anyone know of a popular place you can play around and try some on for fun?  I want to see how they look before committing to buying them.
