I have really fine hair and I want towear my hair half up for my wedding and have it curled in the back. I was thinking about extensions to help give volume and help hold some curl. Anyone have any experience with this that has hair like mine. I am afraid since it is so fine and with it being blonde the you will be able to see the extensions where they are attached. Can you show me your before and after pics? Did it ruin your hair? Were you ever able to see the attached parts and what kind did you get? I am looking at fusion, taped and clip ins. I would rather have fusions but don’t want to spend so much money if people will see them.

@mel18g: If the hairdresser knows what they’re doing, you won’t see them. I’ve heard good things about clip ins, but have never used them. I’m not a fan of the waxed bonds (I think that’s what you mean by fusion?) – IMO they look really stringy and segmented… they don’t seem to look as natural.
I know a couple of girls who had clip ins for their prom, they looked stunning and you couldn’t even tell them apart from their normal hair.
In a couple of days I’m actually getting a full head of tape extensions. I’ve had a super short pixie cut for about 10 years. I haven’t had a haircut since just before Christmas, so it’s juuuuuuuust to chin length. I trust my hairdresser completely – I’d want to after 8 years – so I’m excited… getting 19 inches…. yikes!
I’ll post some before and after pics once they’re done. I’m fully expecting to see a couple of tape segments because my hair is also fine. Plus, it’s already going to be blindingly obvious to everyone that knows me that I didn’t grow 15+ inches overnight lol
I’m naturally blonde but atm my hair is a deep red and I’ll be getting my extensions in the same colour 🙂

I plan on doing fusions. I have seen them on other people and they look amazing. I couldn’t tell that they were extentions at all! I have tried clip ins and they KILLED my head! Not something I want to deal with the day of my wedding. If fusions are done correctly you can not see them at all and you will be able to wear them for 4 to 6 months.

As a chick with fine hair and not a lot of it, I can tell you that in my experience, all extensions have damaged my hair. My mom is a hairdresser, and I’ve been her guinea pig since I was little.
Now for the good news.. Those tape extensions, not the goopy ones, I’m talking about the seamless ones that your hair is sandwiched in between and are about an inch and a half to two inches wide per piece, are awesome. Aside from that, I’m always afraid they can been seen, but if they’re put in correctly, I can assure you, they cannot. Just make sure they’re not installed too high on the top of the head (crown area)…
I’ve had great results and minimal hair loss as a result. I’ve been using them on and off since 2006.
They’re so much fun and I LOVE them!!

I used to use the clip in extensions and I love them. If they are put in correctly, you won’t see the clips. BUT your head will probably hurt at the end of the night because the hair is sooo heavy! I would have to massage my head for a good 3 mins! Its worth it.
