I bought clip in extensions. They are human hair and I had my colorist dye and cut them to match my natural hair. I wore them for the engagement photos and plan on wearing them for my bachelorette and wedding day. They were a couple hundred doars but well worth it.

Yep! I have clip ins, and wear them every day. They are about $200+, but well worth it. My coworkers get theirs from Sally Beauty Supply, and I actually ordered mine from Amazon (yeah, I know I know). But, they are beautiful and I get SO many compliments on my hair now…I had a medical issue that made my hair thin, but it’s on the way to being normal again.

I will be getting new ones for my wedding for sure! I would say order them no less than 8 weeks prior, and make sure they are LIGHTER IN COLOR than your hair will be on your wedding day. Extensions can be hard to darken, but are impossible to lighten.

Ask your stylist if she is willing to cut and dye them when she cuts and dyes your hair, to be sure they match. 

My extensions make my hair as long as yours is now, but my “wedding hair” will be much longer 🙂

Edit to add- make sure they are real human hair!

Bellami hair extensions! The BEST! They are thick from root to tip. You will not be disappointed.

DK2B:  +1 for Bellami. I wear them everyday, they are the thickest and best quality hair extensions I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried a LOT).

realtreegal:  Clip in extensions are great I recently purchased mine from Bellami Hair Extensions and was very happy with the price and quality. The customer service is not the greatest, but they have a big color selection and different thickness to choose from. They also send you a sample piece to try to ensure you are happy with the color you might not have to dye them since it is human hair it tends to blend nicely as long as it is close in color. I’m so glad I went with clip-ins I paid $160 but have already gotten tons of use from them. I have tried traditional extensions in the past not only was it really expensive to keep up, but it caused so much damage to my hair. Hope this helps!

realtreegal:  my hair isnt that much longer than yours. Just make sure to order lighter rather than darker. My colorist said I could dye them darker but you cannot bleach them.

I have fusion style extensions. I got them in last week for my wedding next week… NOT cheap but much more convenient and easy to care for than clip in… I had the clip in for awhile and they were ok, but I much prefer these. They cost me about $500–in Kansas though so keep in mind location and cost of living… $200 for hair, and $270 for installation. $100/hour… was nearly a 3 hour job!!! She also included coloring them, and my hair where my previous ombre had faded to a lighter color. I used mine more for fullness than length. My hair is really thin and fine so to have any sort of volume in my updo I need them! I’m obsessed and don’t see myself not having them for a long time 🙂
