Believe it or not, hair extensions actually date back to the Ancient time of Cleopatra - think somewhere around 3400BC. How do you think Cleo got such thick, lustrous hair? Back in those days, people would use human or sheep’s hair to lengthen their locks, but you’ll be pleased to hear the technology has come leaps and bounds since then.
Today, hair extensions are one of the most popular salon services available. Offering colour, texture, highlights, added thickness and length, they’re a great way to change up your hairstyle. Best of all? They’re semi-permanent, so no harm done if you want to chop and change at the drop of a hat.
Here are some of the most popular types of hair extensions on the market.
Wait! Hear us out. Good clip-ins are great for instant results. Have you got an event or special occasion coming up? They can be attached in no time at all, don't require any long-term commitment, and offer length and volume in every colour imaginable. They’re also pretty budget friendly, too.
A gentle procedure which involves clamping single-strand extensions to the natural hair shaft. The best bit? They’re essentially damage-free as there’s no heat, glue, tape or sewing involved.
Don’t worry - we’re talking about sewing into your hair, not your head! Your hair is braided tightly, creating a base for the hair extensions to then be sewn and attached to. These guys are easy to maintain, and pretty easy to remove as well.
That’s just the tip of the hair shaft though. For more information, and recommendations to suit your individual needs, consult a hair extension expert before jumping into anything.
