Hair extensions industry

Hair is a touchy topic in America. It’s only allowed in very specific areas, and then it must look effortlessly perfect, and under all conditions. What does ‘perfect’ hair look like? While there are some differences in opinion, for women long, thick, glossy hair is the standard measure of ‘perfect.’ The problem is that it is very difficult for quite a few women to reach those results, at least naturally. The solution is hair extensions and beauty treatments that keep those additions looking great.

There was a study of over 3,000 women, in which surveyors wanted to know why women change their hair. The top two reasons were: ‘I was just bored,’ at 44%, and ‘I needed a change,’ at 61%. Another great reason is this: women are universally cheered up when they get a great new style. A boost in confidence is always a good reason.

For some, to make a change they may need hair extensions and beauty salons are the best place to go. When people think about a visit to the hair salon, they typically think of taking some length off. But for those who have gone that route and now want something different, they may have thought they can only go shorter or change the color. Not so; a good, experienced hair stylist will recommend adding extensions. Wondering if there is more to it than that? There are a few things you should know before having hair extensions and beauty salons are not allows forth coming in the right information.

There are a few different techniques when adding extensions. From (generally) least expensive to most they are: clip-in; tape; and keratin. Clip-in extensions are the most temporary of the bunch, and as they are the least expensive they can be a great way to test out the idea of adding extensions. You may find the additions do not give you the look you were after. The next level is tape hair extensions, which can last between six and eight weeks depending on how well they are cared for. The detail lies in the fact that these additions do not wear well if you regularly work out intensely enough for your scalp to sweat. The continued accumulation of sweat, oil, and heat will cause the extensions to slip.

The most expensive, long-wearing, and natural looking option is keratin extensions. Although the most expensive, they are the least damaging to your natural hair, and can even hold up after swimming. The method with which they are attached blends well with the hair, making updos look more natural than the other methods.

No matter which method you choose, remember that quality extensions will always be made with real human hair. Feel free to ask the salons you are considering as many questions as you like. They should be able to answer any and all of your questions. Extensions can be a big investment, in time and money. If you are not satisfied with them, it can be disappointing. Discuss with your stylist which extension option would work best with your lifestyle.
