From giving the illusion of increased hair length to adding volume to the hair, hair extensions do wonders! From different types to trends to brands – Here is all you need to know!

It is a popular belief that if there’s anything that stands on the priority list for women next to clothing, it is hair! Women usually love to keep experimenting with hair and try the latest hairstyles and cuts. Hair extensions are the perfect solution for any style you want to opt for. Here are the different types of hair extensions:

Types of Hair Extensions:
There are plenty of types available in the market. Both human and synthetic hair extensions are available. Synthetic ones are not durable, cannot be styled according to our convenience and also the color of the locks fades as days go by! But they’re also pocket-friendly. Whereas natural hair extensions are exactly human hair-like but expensive! Depending on the type of hair, the duration you want the hair extension for, budget and lifestyle, the types vary!

Clip in Hair Extensions: In this type, the hair extensions can be clipped in within minutes without taking much of your time. These blend easily with the existing hair and are one of the most affordable ways to get long voluminous hair!

Sew-in Hair Extensions: In this, the hair integrations are sewed into the natural hair with help of a needle and cotton thread. As the hair is sewed, no gaps are seen and the hair look fabulous! Works best for thick hair as a lot of layers are required to mask the hair.

Bang Extensions: Get bangs without trimming even the slightest bit of your hair! Just part the hair in the center and clip in the fringe extensions and you are good to go with the trendiest bangs look.

Hair Colors, Balayage & Ombre Hair Extensions: This is the best part I like about hair extensions. It is not only apt for people who want length but also without any chemical treatment to the natural hair, we can get the color through hair extensions.

Tape in Hair Extensions:
The name “tape in” says it all! These extensions are pre-taped and are glued together on either side of the hair. In short, these are sandwiched between the hair locks. It contains no tools, no chemicals and is a perfectly easy method for getting hair extended.

  • How to select the right hair extension:

    Don’t get carried away with the various types of them. Choose the right one!
    1. Opt for human hair rather than synthetic hair for a more natural look.
    2. Choose the right color. Try to match as much as possible to your hair color.
    3. Make sure the extension you choose is tangle free.
    4. Match it to the texture of your hair!
