Long waves and layers are in style this season as well as retro Hollywood Glamor styles. These styles are very versatile and can be worn loose or in an updo for special occasions. But what if you have short hair? Human hair extensions give you medium to long hair that looks and feels natural. The biggest benefits of using natural human hair is you can wash it, style it and wear it just like your own hair. When done properly, some extensions can last for many months. Ask your stylist which method or methods she uses to place extensions in your hair and how long they will last. An experienced stylist has many methods to choose from and she will choose the one that is right for you.
- Track extensions that are glued in are the cheapest and only last for 1 to 2 weeks. One of the disadvantages of track extensions is that they can come loose if you sweat or get them wet.
- Locking extensions are sewn onto tight braids and can last 3 to 4 months. They are adjustable and can be reused if you take care of them properly. You can wash your hair and style it as normal.
- Fusion extensions are the most expensive, but last the longest. Your stylist uses a special tool to fuse the extensions to your hair. Fusion extensions last up to 6 months and are normally special ordered. You can also wash your hair and style it with fusion. In order to perform a fusion service, your stylist will have gone through special training in this method.
Natural hair extensions come in all hair colors. If you want highlights or lowlights but don’t want to expose your hair to bleach and hair color, extensions are an excellent alternative. Expertly placed, they will be undetectable and give you several options for colors and styles. You can even find fantasy colors such as bright blue, hot pink, and neon green. Talk to your stylist and see which method she recommends for your hair type and lifestyle.
