Hair extensions not only give people long, full hair but can also offer people additional hairstyle alternatives! Hair extensions can be great for braided or non-braided updos. Braided updos require a good amount of hair if you want the braids to stay in and be noticeable. Other updos or styles may also need additional hair to get the look you are desiring. Usually, people will get their hair styled for a special event such as a wedding, prom, gala, or bar mitzvah. People who do not have long or thick enough hair to get their desired hairstyle will need to use hair extensions!
Hair extensions can be real human hair or synthetic hair. They are applied into peoples hair to add length, fullness, or to obtain a particular hairstyle. Real human hair is exactly what it sounds like, it is real human hair that was given by donors. Synthetic hair, on the other hand, is made up of various synthetic materials and plastic fibers. It is manufactured to imitate real hair.
Real human hair extensions can be treated just like normal hair, you can wash, dye, straighten, blow dry, and apply hair products on them. While with synthetic hair, you have to be more careful when applying heat, dyes, or hair products, they can easily damage the synthetic hair extensions. Human hair extensions cost more because they last longer, are higher quality, and you can do basically anything with them. They last for about a year if you take good care of them. Synthetic hair extensions are cheaper but are not great quality, they only last for a few months, and you may ruin them if you try to apply heat or dye. What you want the extensions for will determine if you should get real or synthetic hair. If you only need them for an event or for short-term use then synthetic can do the job, but if you want them to look real and last for a long time then real human hair extensions would be the better option.
Clip-Ins – Hair extensions that you can clip into your hair and take them out whenever you please. They take about 5-15 minutes to clip into your hair. Clip-ins can be made out of real human hair or synthetic. They can last from six months to a year depending on how much you wear them and how well you take care of them. The downside of clip-ins is that they can become loose throughout the day and you may have to readjust them.
Great Lengths – Also known as fusion hair extensions, are real human hair extensions that are molded into your hair with a heating tool called a Thermal 200 or Ultrasonic 500. Great lengths hair extension application takes about three hours and the extensions last up to six months.
Custom Micro Link – Real human hair extensions that attach to your hair by small silicone-lined beads. This method takes about 2-4 hours and lasts for up to four months. It is generally safer for your hair since there is no heat or chemicals used.
Tape-Ins – Hair extensions with double-sided tape that are pressed into your hair. This process takes about 45 minutes to one hour to apply. Tape-ins can last for about two months and your hairstylist can reuse the strands up to three times if you want them reapplied.
Halo Couture – A halo shaped wire that has hair attached to it and is measured to fit your head. This is an easy method; all you have to do is place the halo couture around your head and blend it into your hair.

Sew-Ins – Also known as weave is applied by first braiding hair into cornrows. After hair is braided into cornrows, real or synthetic hair is sewn into hair with a needle and thread. This process takes 2-3 hours and lasts for about three months. Sew-ins generally work best for people with thicker hair because of the way they are applied.
