I got Remy human hair extensions from Sally Beauty … they were maybe $110. The big difference in price points is whether you go with real human hair or synthetic. Hair stylists insisted they would only work with the real stuff, so thats what I got. You may be able to get a better deal online.

I just bought a set from Luxy. A little over your price point but the quality is really really good and shipping was fast and free 😊

I can’t speak for anyone else but the set I got is gorgeous and the colour match is absolutely perfect. My hair is just past shoulder length and I threw them in very quickly to see what they’ve looked like in terms of colour…not the best picture but here you go 😊

They have different sets, as I also have medium to thick natural hair I got the 220 gram set which is double your budget but I think it was worth the splurge…

Thats straight out of the box as well, I’m not even sure I brushed them lol. I’m sure once my stylist trims and styles them they’ll blend seamlessly 😊

My hairdresser – who works at a really cool salon in Brooklyn – recommended extensions from Rapunzel of Sweden. She has them and loves them. I’m planning to buy a set very soon too!

meanttobee2018 :  If you get your hair dresser to trim your extensions to blend them with your natural hair line they will be a lot less obvious 

search the boards for hair extensions, there are many threads on what works best. 

If you want your extensions styled you need to get Human hair and they need to be clip ins (do not get Halo extensions as they are extremely difficult to style if you want your hair pinned up at all). Most African Hair stores carry extensions in human hair at various price points and will let you just buy the weft then you can sew the clips in yourself to save money. 

My first set was from an African hair store, cost me $80, was human hair and fairly long (20″ or 18″ I can’t remember it’s been so long) and I sewed the clips in myself so I had complete control over coverage. If you want decent quality without spending the $$$ research this option and do not buy online as you’re paying a premium on what you’re getting. 

I’ve also bought various sets off eBay but if you want something in time for your trial finding an African hair store may be your best route. Also like I stated before getting extensions trimmed to match your hair is an absolute must to make sure they blend accordingly.

Thanks for the tips but I’m not the OP. You may want to edit so she knows you’ve replied to her. I’m the poster that bought the luxys with the pic 😊

I vote Luxy as well. 🙂 I didn’t wear them for my wedding, but I did for Miss North Dakota USA. Loved them, and I still have them, years later. LOL

Went to my hairdresser today to trim and blend them….here’s the result!

He’s said they’re fantastic quality that holds a curl well. I’m thrilled with the result. I’ll take a pic of the back when I get home later 😊
