MissPhish:  As someone who has tried every type of hair extension on the market (seriously EVERY kind), I would also go to a hairstylist so they can cut them to blend them in with your hair–very important if you want them to look natural. Also, unless you’re a professional I would not dye them yourself, as they can turn some pretty funky colors if you’re not careful.

I totally agree!!! I wore hair extensions (and yes – EVERY kind fron clip in, glue in, sewn in, taped in, etc) and every type of hair (chinese, malaysian, indian, remy, virgin, etc). Hair used for these extensions have been processed….some take a dye or a lightening process really well…others not so much. Most sets come with a sample piece or two for test dying. If they did not, please take a bit from one of the thicker wefts to test dye. I agreewith having them cut in, but make sure you use someone who has experience with extensions. If these are clip ins, make sure you can put them back in exactly where they were when you had the cut in. I have found several ways of putting in the clip ins to make them core comfy.  At this point, I wear lace front wigs a lot. Easier than extensions for me and the good ones look really natural. you generally get what you pay for when buying hair, but all human hair is a matter of luck in terms of its longevity. DO NOT WEAR THEM TO SLEEP OR SHOWER IN!!!

My HairMUA got my extensions for me –  they matched my hair perfectly. They were great as my real hair doesnt curl well. They were perfect for day of. I have worn them a few times since.

Ive had all types of extensions, and you definitely should have a stylist blend them with your hair. Depending on your hairstyle, you might want to label them as far as how they go into your hair. There are waaaaay too many ways for extensions to look like a hot mess.

I have used clip-ins for years… I wanted to show you two diff colors and styles… One is more recent, when I was blonde. The other is from many years ago as a brunette. However, as long as you get them trimmed/colored (by a stylist) to match your hair color and cut, they can look prettt natural…. Straight or wavy.

MissPhish:  I bought some 20in hair extensions for my big day! I dont have any of my pro pics yet but here is one that I could find that someone took where you can see how it looked (kind of)!  I also cut my own extensions down to 16 inches because I usually cut my own hair! Good luck!<br />

I wore clip ins during my engagement photos. It was so windy that day and they stayed in just fine. When they got to me I brought them to my hair dresser who color matched them and cut them to match my natural hair.
