blackraine04 :  There are lots of things to factor in with this. What type of extensions are you looking at? Type e.i. tape in, clip in, fusions, weave, bead,etc both affect pricing as well as having different pros and cons which could affect if its worth it for you.

Fusions are often the most expensive and imo not worth it as they do the most damage. Clip ins are usually more than tape ins or weaves but last the longest (because you can take them out if youre doing something that could damage them so they are worth more.

You definate want to pay for 100% Remy Human Hair its more but this way you know it can be heat styled, many women get cheaper ones and they melt or dont hold heat styles.

I will most likely be using tape ins for my wedding, i like clip ins but dont want to take out during honeymoon. If for some reason i couldnt do tape I personally would do partial weave aka sewn in

Use clip ins or a hair piece for your wedding day. I didn’t need any. I’ve grown by hair out quite long by don’t using heat tools and with regular cuts. But if you need a bit extra, use clip ins. They will last longer, you can take them out at the end of the night, and the price is right.

I had tapes and clip in for my wedding.. I already have long hair, but wanted more volume

I wear the tapes regularely and love them.  I get them moved up every 2 months and the hair itself, if you get good quality, can last 12-18 months

blackraine04 :  What is your reasoning for getting extensions?  Do you want more volume or do you want to lengthen your hair?  I think it also depends on what kind of style you’re going with.

IMO, I find that extensions that add a lot of length look fake.  I attended a wedding where the bride obviously had extensions as her hair had magically grown at least 6 inches from her bachelorette a month prior.  I heard people whispering about it.  It wasn’t good.  I think she used clip ins.

If you just want some body or to make your hair thicker, I think they would work. I’ve never used them but I’ve heard that if you really want them to look realistic they’re not going to be cheap.  For me personally, it wouldn’t be worth it as I’d never use them again.

I got tape-in extensions for my wedding and it was not worth the money at all, I wish I had gone with clip-in extensions instead. I mean they looked fantastic, but it was way too expensive.

Regarding styling though, I curled my hair and wore it in a low pony. Simple, but it looked elegant and I was able to hide the wefts of my extensions that way.

I’m not sure what kind of updo you have in mind but they make clip in ponytail extensions that are designed to be hidden when your hair is up, so that might be something to look into.

I wanted an updo but I have fine shoulder length hair and just didn’t have enough for what I wanted. My natural hair could go up but had zero volume. I ended up getting clip-ins and they were actually awesome. The clips didn’t show at all and they looked like my normal hair. I didn’t use the whole pack, too, so it wasn’t like like “She’s obviously wearing clip ins.” I just had my hairsylist use what she needed to get my hair up. Once my updo was done, I wouldn’t have been able to tell there were clip-ins there at all. I felt a little bit like a monster when I had to take them out at the end of the night lol, but overall, they were amazing and totally worth it. I plan to use them whenever I need an updo in the future as well.
