I want to use extensions on my wedding day as well.  My stylist recommend Jessica Simpson human hair extension which is actually just one piece that you clip in.  I couldn’t find them in the store(only online) so i bought one pack of the remy human hair extensions.  They were expensive and now i regret it…I should have listened to my stylist.  The package comes with enough pieces, but they are hard to put in and to be honest to you can tell they are extensions.

I think i’m going to buy the Jessica Simpson as well , but if I were you I would do some more research before you purchase.

I had the clip in extensions for my enaggement party and woudn’t recommend them at all. You can really tell they are fake even when you have the right colour and real human hair, I wasted $400.00 to look like shit!. The best way to go is by getting the more permament extensions in the micro ones. You have to have it done in the salon they are expensive but last for 6 to 8 weeks, then you just have them moved up. Much much better and totally worth the money. 🙂 But yes do your research heaps and heaps of research and yes listen to your stylists.

I actually love clip ins! I’m on my second set now, longer than the previous since my real hair is longer. I actually make them from one long weft of human hair. You sew the clips on to the weft. I also double the weft and sometimes quadruple the weft since my realy hair is so thick – the extensions need to be thick to not look weird.

PM if you have any questions. I have never felt that they look fake. I only use human hair and have had a lot of luck. Planning on wearing my long set on wedding day. I get complements all the time. A guy told me I was like the princess on tangled. LOL

I wear the human hair extensions from Sally Beauty Supply. They cost about $110 a pack, and I wear one pack. For extreme fullness I would suggest maybe one and a half to two packs. These extensions are AMAZING! You can curl them, flat-iron them, wash them, and I even dyed them to get the colors to perfectly match my hair. Here is a link:

My hair stylist says they are the best quality she has seen yet for the price.

@Willow1991: They are great extensions. I was scared to try them at first but was pleasantly surprised. I have a long set and a short set and I have had both for over 6 months now. I wear the long ones on weekends and the short ones during the week. They hold up SO well! I’ve even turned some of my friends and my mom on to these. I can’t say enough good things about them. I have very fine, thin hair and they blend so well!

I use Remy extensions and have for the past 2 years. Mine only cost about 100 bucks and I use them about 3 times per week and get heavy wear out of them. I also used them for my wedding and you couldn’t tell the difference. They stay in and look natural. As long as you don’t put them too high up on your head nobody will see the clips and they should look natural. They are only going to look un-natural if you leave them super long but your hair is not really that long. Get them cut to a more natural length for you. Also, as a tip, back-comb your hair in the area where you are placing each clip, not a lot but just enough for the clip to have something to hold onto. This way they will not risk slipping out. PM me if you have any questions.

I’ve used the remy extensions for about 3-4 years.  I buy a new  set every 1.5-2 years.  I LOVE THEM.  They are by far the best.  My natural hair goes past my shoulders and I use 1 set.  It adds pleny of fullness.  I do one strip on each side and two and back.  There are a couple more single strands in the package that I hardly use.  I highly recommend them!  They wash nicely and take curling irons, hairspray and everything so well!

I also brought my new set to my hair stylist and I put them in and he cut them : )  My first set I didn’t cut at all.  I buy the longest one available. They have always stayed securely in my hair and no one ever notices when I have them on (even my Fiance or mother!).  Mine cost $90 (I think) from Sally Beauty Supply, I also have the membership card there.

My hair will not grow any longer than just past my shoulders and it’s baby-fine, so I wear extensions for both volume and length on special occasions.

I bought these remy extensions from eBay, I bought a pack with 8 peices in it at 20″ long (100g) for $26

 

Like a previous Bee, after a few wears, I removed the clips from about half the wefts and doubled up the wefts on the clips, sewing them back on by hand (easy).It really helps them look more natural and less bulky when I put them on, an you definitely don’t see the clips if done right.

My sister & I compared our clip-in extension (they were her Bridesmaid or Best Man gift from a friend’s wedding), from Sally and were over $200, and they’re identical: soft & natural.

Ella, please PM me. I have been creeping these boards for about a month, never felt compelled to reply until now!! DO NOT buy Jessica Simpson OR Sally extensions, yuck! I am a bit of an extension queen. I have pretty long hair naturally, I just like really thick hair, so if these are poor-looking to me, they will look horrid on someone with thinner or shorter hair. I have had “permanent” extensions, which were alright but they do damage your hair, no matter how you get them put in (they also make it so you cannot shampoo your head properly or wear your hair up since they show from certain angles). I have also had a couple brands of clip-ins.

 

Right now I have made my own clip ins using the hair that used to be permanent but I am planning to buy a set of ready mades after Christmas. I highly recommend (after much research and many reviews) HeadKandy. Beautiful, thick, remy hair that will last (Jessica Simpson hair looks fake fake fake and Sally hair does not last after styling, my sister used this for her wedding). You can also email them some pictures of yourself in natural light and they will color match you since online swatches never look anything like the real hair. Apparently they are right on with the color 99.9% of the time. It is more expensive, but afterall it’s an investment.. if you are looking for cheap extensions, you will get cheap hair. Unfortunately there is no way around that!

 

Sorry for the slight rant, just hate plastic-y or rough looking extensions! 🙂
