I was looking at some tutorials online and I’m wondering if I could even get extentions…….
My hair is currently a short a-line bob. The back of my hair is about right at the hair line on the top of my neck. I thought I would get extentions for my wedding, but now I’m thinking that if I put extentions in, it’s just goign to look obvious and very choppy….right? Does anyone have experience with this? I’m thinking that as an alternative I could get a faux pony tail and by the time my wedding rolls around I could probably make that work????

@Ivelanded: It kwould depnd on how much length you want. If it is just to your shoulders, I think you could do it. Cause your real hair will just look like layers. But if you get any longer you will either A. have to have many different lengths in extensions, or B. it will look choppy.

Commenting to follow. I’ve been wondering the same thing.

I mean you can but your going to have to get someone very good to put them in. I really wouldnt recommend trying to DIY extensions without experience of them or at least lots and lots of practice.
I also think how thick your hair is will play a major part in ow natural it looks. Ive seen some look really great. Also the way in which you choose to attach them will play a major part in how natural they look
I would also ask you to think about whether you want such a big change for your wedding dat

I’m getting married on the beach, so my intention has always been to have a low bun, or something like that. Lose, but contained so it’s not all blowing around all night. My hair is fairly thick and heavy. I really just DONT want a short hair style on my wedding, I want to be able to do SOMETHING with it.
I have actually had very very long hair for years, I just recently cut it off, mainly because it was so damaged (I do a LOT to my hair).

I think your hair is probably too short for them.

I got extensions when I had a bob! I had the bottom layers of my hair cornrowed and then the extensions sewn in,. It was a long time ago, so I’m not sure if I have any pictures, but they looked good! I had to do the cornrows because of how short my hair was. The glue was too obvious and I didn’t want clip ins.

I have clip in extensions and my hair is in a bob. It is starting to grow out now, but if you have dont try to go crazy long uou can trim the extensions so that there are layers and it blends with your natural hair. Also, wearing them curly or in loose curls will help them look more natural and blended.

I have the same length hair and have had extensions off and on for a few years now. If you try to wear your hair down and straight, it will usually look obvious. However, if you wear your hair curly, or into an intricate updo, it will look fine.
I was a bridesmaid a few years ago when my hair was suuuuper short, about 5 inches long all over. I felt left out because everyone was having these awesome curly updos soooo about 4 hours before the wedding, my aunt and I made a mad dash to Sallys and put in the extensions and recreated the updo the others were wearing. Noone could tell! (Except they wanted to know how I grew 18 inches of hair since I last saw them haha.)

I just got extensions yesterday (tape extensions) and I LOVE THEM. My hair is curly, but I wear it wavy, and was just below my chin. Now my hair slightly past my shoulders. I wore it up in a ponytail today to work to make sure pp still recognize me! 🙂

@Ivelanded: I’m not sure how to add a link but if you copy & paste this into your url I hope it pops up it’s a video by LuxyHair “How to blend Luxy Hair extensions with short hair”. Wearing extensions with short hair is possible but I recommend you style it in curls. Wearing your hair styled straight with extensions in makes it harder to blend your natural hair with the extensions. I wasn’t sure what kind of extensions you were looking into but clip ins you can simply wash and re wear over and over:)

Let it grow out some between now and the wedding. If you do get them in, get someone who knows what they are doing. My friend had short hair and would wear long clip-on extensions sometimes…honestly, most of the time it looked like a mullet and FI (all in good fun) would call her David Bowie from the labyrinth. Her hair is a little longer now (about shoulder length) so they blend in fine when she wears them now.

I just put this pic on another board- My hair was just below my chin before I got the tape extensions.
