Hair Extensions: More Than Length

Hair Extensions: More Than Length

Products, styling tools, and proper care can go a long way to keep hair looking fabulous. However, if you have thin, flat hair it can be easy to feel a little pang of envy when seeing the full, voluminous, and perfectly styled hair of celebrities. The secret to these gorgeous locks is hair extensions! You may think of extensions only when considering adding length to your hair but they can elevate your hair game in many other ways, too!  

Thicken
Hair goes through a lot of changes throughout our lives. Hair can become thin and brittle due to improper chemical treatments, hormones, disease, medications, or even simply age. Extensions can be placed to fill in breakage areas or all over to supplement thinning hair.

Volumize
Lack of volume can be a problem for those with thick or thin hair. Those with fine hair find keeping style and volume extremely difficult, but extensions can help! Receiving hair extensions throughout the hair gives hair a more volumized look, whether you're wearing your hair straightened or curled.

Color
The hottest fun color trend right now is pastel hues but these can sometimes be difficult to achieve and maintain. These light colors require the hair to be applied to bleached strands so that the color really shines, this can be especially time-consuming for those with darker locks. Pre-colored hair extensions are a great alternative for those who do not wish to apply chemical treatments to their hair but want to try fun pops of color.  

Types of Hair Extensions

  • Tape Extensions are placed in-between thin strands of hair and can be used to add thickness, volume, length, or pops of color. This type of hair extension is a great choice because the base of the weft is thin, giving a more natural look compared to bulky clip-in extensions. Hot Heads and Hairdreams brand tape hair extensions are expertly created from human hair, giving you a lot of styling options not available with synthetic extensions!
  • Micro-Link Hair Extensions have evolved massively since they first came into use for celebrities. micro-link extensions are an excellent alternative to sew-in extensions for volume and fullness and can be used on a variety of hair types and textures. Your natural hair is threaded through links on the weft, the links are then clamped down to secure the extension. With Micro-Links, you are able to wash your hair more frequently and wear longer than sew-in extensions.
  • Fusion Hair Extensions are applied strand-by-strand to your natural hair and give the most natural look, it's no wonder this method is preferred by celebrity stylists! Revolutionary fusion technology allows these extensions to be placed in as little as 1.5 hours. A major benefit of fusion hair extensions is their longevity. With proper care, these extensions can last up to 6 months!
