Are you talking about the kind they attach into pieces of your hair? Not the clip in kind? Good clips ins are only about 100 bucks but I have seen people pay close to 1000 for the more permanent kind–that doesn’t mean yours will cost that much.

Get clips. no one can tell the difference, they are cheaper (100-200 for good ones), and they don’t damage your hair, unlike the “real” ones.

Agree – clips all the way.  I spent $85 on mine, then $100 to have my salon lowlight them to match my hair exactly!  Well worth it.

The stylist will do it for you.  I used Remy brand (real hair, not fake) from Sally’s.  They came highly recommended.

HeadKandy-pricey but WELL worth the money-great quality, huge variety of shades, and it’s a TON of hair.

I am getting the “tape in” extensions for the wedding. All together with hair and salon-application it will only cost $300. The hair lasts from 6-8 months and you have to have it re-applied about once a month which will cost about $100.

Clip ins are so easy to use, look just as good and can last a long, long time if you look after them. I have shortish hair now, so I can’t really use my super-long extentions, but I am certain they will last for many years because when I do wear them, I only wear them every now and again.

I would highly recommend Foxy Locks Extensions which is where I got all three sets of my clip ins from. A standard set will cost around $90 plus delivery, and you get a LOT of hair that is really good quality (Remy). It’s 20″ long, I believe. I did a lot of research before I bought. Good luck!

I wore Jessica Simpson extensions in my brothers wedding and they looked awesome. I would never get the kind that are glued in–they totally ruin your hair. My stylist ordered mine for me, put them in, styled them, etc. I would highly recommend clip ins. Plus like a pp said, they last a long time if you take care of them.

@BlondeMissMolly:  I’m using the Jessica Simpon clip in too. I bought mine in wavy since my hair will be curled.

ive had the tape in ones twice… and while i loved the fullness it gave me, i hated them. the back got so snarled up. every time i would get out of the shower it would just crinckle and spring right back up into a nappy nest. they take FOREVER to comb through and you have to consciously pay attention to how youre brushing your hair to not pull them out. and conditioner is a negative. my first set lasted about 5 weeks and then started poking out through my hair and i could never put my hair behind my ear. the second time they lasted about 9 weeks and started poking through my hair too. the brand was easihair/easilength and they each costed about $300-350.

i tried them because i originally wanted them in for my wedding as well, but ive decided that with being on the honeymoon after i didnt want to deal them. theyre easier to see when youre hair is wet & like i said, took forever for me to come through & hairdry. 

i also have the clip in ones – remy hair from sallys beauty for $120 because of the length. they already matched my hair so well so i didnt need to do any coloring. 2 years later i still have them and the hairs still healthy. they worked wonderful in my hair for my best friends wedding so im going to use them for mine. and are much less maintence!

@dana7582:  If you want clip ins, that seems a bit expensive. PPs have some good advice on where to look for them. I used to wear hot fusion/keratin bond strand-by-strand extensions and they were FAR more expensive than that. At least 3x the price per maintenance.  I would caution you against fusion extensions for only $500 as I would seriously question the quality. But if you want clip ins…go for it! Good luck!

I’ve had all types of hair extensions. I think $500 is a bit high. The most expensive part should be the hair. If you are doing clip in- hair shouldn’t be more than $200 and $150 tops to put those in. If you buy the hair I recommend sewing in the clips yourself to save money. I get the flashpoint extensions and I have never ruined my hair from it. If you take care of them and your stylist knows what shes doing- they are safe. Those never cost me more than $400. Usually $200-300 for the hair (depending on the length) and around $175 to put them in. The cheapest place for best quality hair is thehairshop.com. LOVE them 🙂

Yeah that is a bit overpriced. I have had extensions sewed in for $400 and it was real Malaysian hair. The best out there. Remy hair is also good, it should cost no more than $300 for the hair and to be sewed in. I also like the clip ins. I’m getting mine sewed in simply because I want to go in the water on my honeymoon,  I’ve never tried clip ins in the water, not sure how well they do. I live in NYC and have been told getting your hair done is cheaper here so idk much about pricing in your area. Hope this helps!
