Considering the popularity of hair extensions and the amount of emails I receive from upcoming brides in regard to their use, I think it’s time for a post.
There are basically 2 types of hair extensions. Permanent hair extensions, somehow bonded to your own hair, and clip ons which are temporary. I personally LOVE clip on hair extensions and use them a lot. They offer endless possibility, are less costly (nice in this crappy economy), lower maintenance, and are such a great way to add volume and length to thin and short hair. I’m a fan. You can view here and here some of my brides wearing them.
One of the most asked questions: “Do you provide hair extensions?”
Since the majority of our brides are from places other than Key West, and the fact that the extensions need to be well matched to the hair, we feel it’s best for our clients to get them in advance. This ensures proper length, color are chosen without running into surprises on the wedding day. One thing to also consider once your new hair is purchased, is to have your own stylist help you decide if highlights or color are needed. You want them to look flawless!
I’ve worked with HAIRUWEAR extensions a lot, really enjoy the quality of their locks and therefore recommend them. They have all types of styles, color and shapes but my favorite product from this company is: “ which I like for its versatility.
Of course, there are many other companies offering hair extensions. Just make sure the one you’re getting are made out of 100% human hair, or else they may end up melting while using heated implements such as curling or flat iron. If you’re more a DIY type of girls you can also make them, it’s pretty easy. Check out Johnny Lavoy demo on placing extensions, and Dawn on How to make them yourself:
