5 Things to Consider Before Getting Hair Extensions
Everyone wants long hair, but not everyone has the time nor patience to wait for their hair to grow (and some may not be able to grow their hair that long). This is why extensions can be a great alternative!
Before you get hair extensions, there are a few things you should consider. Take a peek at our curated list below of things to think about before going for that hair extension service.
1. Know What Kind of Hair Extensions You Want
Familiarize yourself with the different types of hair extensions out there because a lot of different kinds do exist!
There are temporary kinds of hair extensions. In addition, there are also semi-permanent hair extensions that will stay in your hair for longer.
Here’s a small list of the different kinds of extensions there are to consider:
- weave hair extensions
- fusion hair extension
This is not a comprehensive list, but it can give you an initial idea of the research you can do on different kinds of hair extensions available.
2. What Kind of Hair You Have
Next, you need to consider what kind of hair you have. We ask extensive questions on what kind of hair you have on our appointment application form for hair extensions. This is to help us help you.
Consider not only your hair’s texture (is your hair fine or coarse?) but also how much hair you have. This can help our stylists determine what the best course is for hair extensions and your hair. It varies depending on the person.
3. You Still Need to Take Care of Hair Extensions
Hair extension care is important once you get them. Are you prepared to take on additional duties while caring for hair extensions?
Once you have had your hair extensions for a couple of days, then you can wash your hair.
Do so carefully, though. You do not want to leave your hair extensions wet for extended periods of time. Otherwise, the extensions may begin to loosen.
4. How Much Money You Have to Spend
You also want to consider your budget for hair extensions in general. Some hair extensions are pricier than others because of the amount of labor and time it takes to put them in your hair, in addition to the materials used.
Work out with your stylist what the cost will be, as well as how long the hair extensions are guaranteed to last. Cheaper is not always better when it comes to hair extension cost.
5. It’s Not Always About Length, It’s Volume Too
Hair extensions are great for adding length to your hair. However, you can also consider hair extensions if you want to add more volume to your hair as well.
Consult with your stylist about what you are after when it comes to hair extension service. Your stylist can offer an expert opinion.
