A talented stylist will be able to blend them. I’ve been using micro ring extensions for the past 2 years (on and off). No glue or sewing, no real damage to your own hair and easily refreshed when your hair has grown. They are the only extensions I’d have now.

Your hair can blend properly. All you do is get good quality extensions that match your hair color and texture. She doesn’t know what she’s talking about. HOWEVER, how log is your hair? I don’t know that you will be able to do that hairstyle bc there will be tracks or the tops of the clip-ins showing. How long is your hair? I wear extensions 95% of the time and I have short hair.

I should just add that to blend them may involve cutting into your own hair. If you want to wear it as in the picture then I imagine they would use your own hair as a top layer and soften the ends to blend in with the longer hair so no attatchements are on show. That’s just a guess, but I had extensions with a chin length bob and that’s the technique my stylist used.

 I would just invest in a good pair of clip-ins–especially if you don’t want to damage your hair. A good stylist will be able to blend them. Love that hairstyle btw!

FWIW, I have never had a hair extension NOT damage my hair and I’ve worn them all (sewn-in wefts, micro links, hot heads wefts, shrink tubes, copper tubes, keratin tips, Great Lengths, etc). It took me a couple of years to get my hair back to normal once I decided I was tired of the upkeep. Good luck!

ceimi:  My fav clip-ins have been made from Bohyme remy weft hair (reasonably priced) and then your stylist can create the clip-ins for you (the weft lengths will be custom created for you). Also 909 hair extensions are ok and I’ve used 808 in a pinch. If you’re on a budget, Bellami clip-ins are a good option but their color selection is pretty limited. The most important thing is to make sure you have human hair remy extensions and not synthetic so your extensions will look natural and not be a tangled mess by the end of the day. Also, cutting the extensions to blend with your real hair is important as well. 

You can also go with your hairstylist to a store that carries extensions so he/she can color match you or at least find a good base and then the stylist will typically dye them to match exactly if your hair color is hard to match. Hope that helps.

Hmmm….I’ve never had hair extensions damage my hair and it’s been 13 years of me wearing them. I admit I will spend $700-900 on them though….

And you don’t have to cut your own hair to blend them unless you have really bad split ends so they don’t lay nicely. Omg. Find someone who really knows what they are doing and you should be fine. I’m in the NYC area so they’re a dime a dozen out here.

My hair is lower back/waist length and thick but i wanted added thickness for my wedding because i did a half up design with soft curls/waves. I bought tape in human hair extensions on ebay and had a stylist put them in 2 days before my wedding. She also trimmed them to blend with my layers. It was amazing. The ones i got were 24″ which was only about an inch longer than my hair. I still call it my mermaid hair. It lasted the day of and for another week after. It shouldve lasted longer but i didnt take care of them and i get bored quickly and pulled them out on my minimoon. Ive had all kinds of extensions and i have clip ins at home. The tape in were my favorite by far. No damage, inexpensive (i bought 2 sets but she didnt put all of them in) and with the $100 i paid my at home stylist to put them in and the less than $150 i paid for the hair, it was well worth it.

ceimi:  i second the others, micro link all the way!! they don’t damage my hair at all, and i too have been getting them for years. I think im going on 3-4 years now, continuously without break. With the right stylist they will not damage anything. the only way they will damage your hair is if you leave them in too long, like 4+ months — i get mine redone every 3 months. the downside is they are fairly pricey, but they do allow you to do up dos or pretty much anything you can do with natural hair, so for me that makes them worth it. I found a stylist that lets me buy my own hair and links directly and charges me hourly, so i get out for about $6-800 depending on how thick I want to go (including the hair) as opposed to the $2k a lot of salons will charge for this type of extensions.

people are always SHOCKED when i tell them i have extensions because they look so natural and the hair is so beautiful, and I can do any style with them including half up. like another poster said, a good stylist can make them blend perfectly — i have seen my stylist do amazing thigns with girls with hair much shorter than shoulder length!
