I’m a cosmetologist, and I’ve made my own a few times. They’re actually incredibly easy to make yourself. If you go to a beauty supply store and buy the color and length of hair that you need (the kind that’s already sewn into a track), you can also buy wig clips and sew them to either end of each extension (I am kinda lazy and hot glued mine then went back and sewed them because sewing can be a little bit of a pain). As far as the length/amount of extensions, I measured the width from one side of my hairline to the next for every vertical half inch up my scalp, up to the parietal ridge (bump on the top/back part of your head is where I stopped). I used these measurements to cut the tracks. I also made some extensions for the side of the hair, otherwise it doesn’t blend well/look natural. Here’s a link to a youtube video to make your own https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYy_vlbTWIc  As far as the type of hair you’re looking for all human hair extensions are going to be the most expensive, but highest quality, you’ll want to make sure it’s turned hair (the cuticle of the hair is facing the same way which will make sure it doesn’t tangle as much). If you don’t find your exact color, you’ll need to check the packaging to see if you can color them. Please let me know if you have any questions!

@cthomas4783:  I just bought hair extensions from Bellami and I love them! They’re super easy to clip in (there are videos on youtube)

I got mine from headkandy and they are amazing! Match my hair colour perfectly, give me heaps of length and volume and nobody ever thinks they are extensions. They last ages too. They are a little expensive, but totally worth it.

I used clip ins I got from Sally’s. They looked amazing, everyone was commenting on my hair all day.
