@MSbride2Bee:  I don’t have a photo, but I used clip-in human remy hair extensions from Cliphair.  I ordered them online for about $94.  I was iffy about paying the money for them, but they were definitely worth it!  I bought the curly ones (I have curly hair and figured that would be better if I wore them again), and my hair stylist just clipped them in and did them up right away without having to curl them even though I chose the human hair ones because you can heat them.  It didn’t take much time at all.  I also have fairly thin hair and was worried about my updo looking too scraggly.  They did a really good job and the only people who noticed were those who I told.

Also, Cliphair was really good.  You can send them a photo of your hair and they will colour match it.  I wasn’t convinced this would work out that well, but it was spot-on.  I would recommend them.

And yes, you can use them again.  The only thing I noticed though, was that because of all the bobby pins in my updo, some of the hair extensions ended up getting really frizzy and gross looking.  Some of them you could comb out and they looked normal, but some had to be cut off.


My sister used extensions too, but she had the loop ones which took hours to put in, but she kept them in her hair for a week or so after.

I did! My hair is super fine and I definitely needed some extra body. I had planned to put it up at the reception but wound up just leaving it down the whole time. They were fine all day until I got into the taxi to go back to the hotel – and then I was suddenly hot as hell and couldn’t wait to get them off. I think I started unclipping them before we even got back to the room! But I’d do it again – as long as there was air conditioning. Lol.

I have fine hair, not much of it too, and my hairstylist used clip on extensions to add voume. I highly highly recommend it as many did not know I had extensions, it was quick and easy to take out, and I can reuse them again. Doesn’t damage your hair like other types of extensions. I don’t know what brand she used, but they were real human hair and I paid around $200 for three long pieces. Worth every bit of money, IMO, it made a huge difference to my hair! I had two hairstyles, both included the extensions. I could not feel them in my hair.

@MSbride2Bee:  I would 100% recommend using the clip-in extensions. I knew from the moment my hubby proposed to me that I wanted to get extensions. I have REALLY thin short lifeless hair. I purchased the human remy hair extensions from my hairstylisty/Mua. They were AMAZING I LOVED them. And I couldn’t tell they were even in my hair. They also looked so real. And Yes, you can use them again and again. Here are some pics.  🙂

Go to your hair dresser and ask if she does, or knows of anyone who does bead weft extensions. you buy the hair for $150-200 and they usually don’t charge much to install, maybe $75-150 depending on the amount of hair you choose to put in. They don’t damage much of your hair and look extremely natural. Just be careful if you choose to put the hair up as you might have a hard time concealing some of the beads. If you can’t find anyone who does that, buy the quality hair (Indiremi, Bohyme) and ask your stylist if she can color match and sew in the clips. Don’t buy the crap hair from Sallys, it will only shed and look ratty on your special day… Brushing your hair every 5 minutes is definitely something you don’t want to worry about.


I have collar length hair and I have bead weft extensions and no one ever knows that I have extensions. P.S. excuse the selfie, it’s one of the only photos I have right now of my hair.

I bought the Sally’s hair for my Vegas trip and loved it!! I have thin hair normally and I loved the thickness.

@MSbride2Bee:  I bought some Bellami hair extensions online for around $200 and they’re amazing. My hair is already pretty long but like you, I wanted extra volume. I thought they were good but when my stylist was impressed I knew they were good quality. They do feel weird and heavy but you get used to it for sure! I haven’t actually worn them out yet so I’ll post pictures of my wedding day with them in. 🙂

@MSbride2Bee:  I have some, and love them! They were about $120 and totally worth it. My fiance puts them in for me, because in some spots they are hard to reach. Only complaint would be they didn’t hold a curl very well.
