PonkiHoneyBee:  I have had them before and they were awesome!

I have had a weave in before as well, but I have really fine thin hair so you could see the bump, and the first time I had them in they were too far forward and you could see the weave if the wind blew a lot. NOT COOL!! Second time I had them done by someone else, and placement was way better but left my hair really pitiful. They’re very heavy.

Microlink were way better. Lighter, and left my hair in great shape when they came out. The only negative is that like with all extensions, you have to be careful not to catch them when brushing. If your hair is on the fine/thin side, you have to make sure it’s always clean or the links may show through, and over time some strands may slide out (I used to just throw them in my purse when that happened, haha). And they’re expensive and more maintenance than your regular hair (but that’s pretty much with all extensions). 

Anyway, I will definitely do them again for my wedding.

Heres a video of me with them in. I love them! They last a long time, look natural, and aren’t uncomfortable. Id check out the tape extensions for fine hair. They are even better because they are flatter and can be placed higher up on your head! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhatYFgF290

These are locks and bonds by the way. Amazing company!

i use micro links and i love them

i loved them so much i trained to become a technician so i could do them on other people.

i had tried all sorts of extensions before these and i just find these are the most natural looking and also dont damage the hair like other methods i have tried

if you are onyl having them in for your wedding though i would maybe consider a different method – ie the tape like a PP mentioned as with any extensions they are hard work and take alot of getting used to if you havent had them before – i’ve had ladies spend the money to have them put in for the wedding to then take them out before hand as they just couldnt get on with long hair! so may be worth trying a less perminate option like a tape first and see how you feel

ITA with the PP. they take way too long to install if you aren’t sure you’ll like the length or thickness or weight of the hair. It took about 5 hours to have done. The tape extensions take about an hour to two depending on the work required.

PonkiHoneyBee:  hmmm, we did it ourselves (my cousin and I) but that is about what people charge here (metro area). The hair alone for about 4 packs (I used 3) would be about 350 alone so I’d say that’s reasonable!

PonkiHoneyBee:  I’m a UK bee so can’t comment on price but here in the uk they range from £300-£600 so it sounds about right x
