If you want hair extensions, you will need to have a healthy scalp and a full head of hair which is at least 10cm long before you consider this treatement. Extensions can be braided or woven into your hair, ot glued to the hair and/or scalp. Normally, extensions will be applied by a salon and it can take a team of two people an entire day to attach a full head of hair! Because of the time involved, don’t expect this treatment to come cheap. If you don’t have the time, you can go for just a few extensions to lengthen the fringe or add a few highlights. Extensions generally last about 4 months.
You can apply hair wefts yourself, or get someone else to apply them for you. Hair wefts are often clipped or glued into place and can be removed at your convenience. The hair wefts are attached to a tiny clip which is hidden by your hair. It is up to you whether to go for wefts which are the same colour as your natural hair, or whether you want to go for high- or lo-lights in your hair. Prices will vary according to the amount of hair in the weft, and the material it is made from (human hair will be at a premium price).
