Has anyone purchased clip in hair extentions for their wedding? I’m really considering it. I have thinner hair and its not that long. I want long hair for my wedding and I’d like to have it down and curled. I’ve been told clip in extentions with real human hair are the best since it won’t damage your real hair like sew-in or glue in extensions will.
Does anyone have any experience? Where did you get the hair? There are so many places online you can order, but I’m not sure which ones are the best. I don’t want to spend over $300, and I’ve found complete head sets for around $150.
Anyone tried http://www.luxyhair.com? What about proextensions.com?

@Alasassy: I would ask your hairdresser for a recommendation. They should know someone locally who can make you some and color match to your hair. I think that is better than ordering off the internet and you should be able to get one large clip-in piece for somewhere between $100 – $200 depending on length and color requirements.

@Alasassy: I wear clip-ins on an almost daily basis (my hair refuses to grow past my shoulders for whatever reason, lol). I’ve used the sets from Sally’s for several years, but they’re so darn expensive!!!
I found a brand via Amazon, TressMatch, that I LOVE. They curl well, wash & condition well, blend better than any set I’ve had, and hardly tangle (sometimes the very bottom weft will tangle right in the center, but my set is the thickest the company offered so I’m attributing it to that).
They were having a sale when I bought mine after Thanksgiving, and I only paid $75 (as opposed to Sally’s $130 for lesser quality), so idk if they’re still that price.
You can either search them via Amazon or just google TressMatch (which should bring up their main site).
This is the best picture I have of me wearing them, in case you wanted to see how they blend:

Thanks all! Problem is my stylist isn’t up to speed on extensions, and there’s not really a nice salon around town that carries or offers hair alternatives like wigs/extensions, etc. So I’m on my own (ugh living in a small town…)
I’ve been doing some more research and watched tons of YouTube videos on HeadKandy – they offer extensions with highlights. My hair is so multi colored, it would be hard to just choose one shade. But HeadKandy has a variety of ones, and I’m thinking of ordering the butterscotch ones. Anyone tried HeadKandy before? Or had them for their wedding?

Yessss!! Do it. I wore them on my wedding day. I got mine from Sally Beauty Store they were like $150 but totally worth it! I had to dye mine to match my hair color but that was easy peasy. I color my own hair from a box so I just did the exts when I did my own hair and it worked out great! I am so glad I got the exts. I was debating before I bought them but after I did I was soo happy!
Also make sure you get “real” hair if you plan to color or curl it

If you get human hair extensions make sure that it says Remy or Remi. This means that the hairs all face the same direction so that when you brush it or weat it they are less likely to make knots and snarls because the cuticles all face the same direction. I like http://www.wigs.com for this stuff, they’re have good quality stuff.
Price depends on the color of your hair and where the hair extensions come from. Most hair comes from India or China, so if you have dark hair it’s easier to find cheaper better quality stuff. Chinese hair does NOT hold a curl. If you’re going for cheaper go for Indian, it holds a curl very well but can be straightened, and usually can withstand the bleaching and dying process because it’s strong.

I wear them everyday, I buy mine from a store in the UK called foxy locks. She has some great YouTube videos which you can check out online.
Im lucky enough that my hair stylist is used to using them, so she’s ace 🙂
