You've probably seen them on the runway and in magazines, especially if you're a fan of long hair. However, you may wonder: what are hair extensions, and how do they work?
Hair extensions are strands of human or synthetic hair attached to your hair. They add length or volume to your existing tresses by connecting them with either glue or sewing thread. They can be made from cruelty-free synthetic fibres which mimic the natural texture and from natural human hair, either gathered from donors or harvested from a salon.
“Hair extensions are a great way to add length and volume to your hair. They're also a great way to change your style for different occasions—you can go from curly to straight, from dark to light, or anything in between.” says hair styling enthusiast Lily Stevens from Laser Hair Removal.
There are two types of hair extensions: permanent and non-permanent. So how do you know what works best for you? Read on!
Permanent Hair Extension
A permanent hair extension is a strand of natural human hair bonded to your hair with a special adhesive. The application process can take anywhere from one hour to two hours, and it's done by a professional.
The extensions are made using 100% natural human hair, which means they look and feel just like your own hair. You can get them dyed or coloured any colour you want. They're also effortless to maintain—you only have to wash them with shampoo and conditioner 2 to 3 times a week and brush them daily with a soft bristle brush.
Temporary Hair Extension
Temporary hair extensions are a great way to try a new look without making a big commitment. Unlike permanent hair extensions, they're easy to apply and remove, so you can take them on and off whenever you want. It’s the perfect choice for special occasions like weddings or parties where you'd like your hair to look extra special but don't want it in your everyday life.
There are several types of temporary hair extensions. Below is a list of the most common ones:
Clip-in - These are pre-attached to clips, which are then attached to your existing hair with the help of either small metal or plastic combs. They're easy to apply and remove, so they're great for last-minute styling needs, like adding length for a special occasion.
Invisible thread - This type does not require clips or combs because it's woven directly into your strands. It will give you an ultra-natural look that won't show up in photos as quickly as some other products might!
