Over the past few years every time you pick up a magazine or hear about the latest celebrities in the news, one thing is for sure and that is they will be sporting a continuing hair trend; hair extensions!
Thankfully for us however hair extensions are one trend that aren't just confined to the celebrity world, anyone, regardless of age, background or hair type can have extensions applied. The only restriction when it comes to this trend is that you must have relatively healthy that is at least three to five inches in length. Longer hair is obviously acceptable but most stylists won't attach extensions to hair that is shorter than this.
There are many reasons as to why people decide to have extensions applied. The main and most obvious reason is to add length to your hair but they are also a great way of adding volume and thickness to your hair. Some of the other main reasons that people decide to have hair extensions applied are as follows:
o If you struggle to grow your hair out naturally or you require instant added length, volume or layers
o To cover up a bad hair cut. For example you thought that a really short style hair cut would suit you but you absolutely hate it. In cases such as this hair extensions are you perfect solution
o As a way of adding subtle highlights to your hair without using a chemical process such as bleaching which can damage your hair leaving it dry and brittle
o To gain a new look for a special occasion such as a wedding, prom or formal event
o Just for fun! They can be a great way of adding a twist to a night out or updating an outfit as they offer you an instant new look
o You miss your long hair and want to grow it out so you use hair extensions while you are waiting for your hair to grow
o You may have a medical condition or an operation that required the removal of a section of hair
o They can be a great way to increase your self esteem or to make you look longer
o To please your spouse
Most hair extensions are only semi permanent as they will last around six months and at the most a year. The method of application that you use when it comes to your extensions varies based on personal preference and the comments from your expert stylist.
Hair extensions mean you aren't limited by the length of your hair. Long hair means you can do whatever you want to your hair. You can wear it down, curl it, pin it up or add plenty of colour to it.
Remember though, hair extensions are a big investment financially so it is important that you make the right decision when it comes to choosing your attachment method, the hair type that you are going to use and the stylist and salon the you are trusting to apply your extensions. You should only have your extensions applied by a professional who has a good technique and years of practice.
