After a craptastic hair trail today I’ve decided to consider hair extensions. My hair has good length but it’s so thin that it won’t hold curls for very long and it just looks… pathetic. My Maid/Matron of Honor suggested hair extentions which I hadn’t really thought about until now.
I don’t know much about them. How are they applied? How long will they last? Can they be washed & styled like normal hair?
If anyone had hair extensions for the big day, I’d love to see some pics.

I haven’t use extensions, but I did some research because I was thinking my hair was in an awkward length. It all depends of the extensions you choose, there are natural hair extensions that can be styled and washed like normal hair, and there are fake hair ones that I don’t know so much about, but I think are more delicate.
In both cases you can purchase clip on extensions if you only need them for one day or salon extensions that are more expensive and last longer since they attached them individually to your hair. That’s about what I now about them. You can find a lot of info in the web and I suggest you ask your hair stylist which ones are better for you and your needs:)

I used them for my wedding and loved them. I got them from Sally’s for $100…

I had real hair clip ins supplied by my hairstylist. They were great.

I havent had my wedding yet but I am doing clip in REMY hair extrensions.. I got them at sally beauty supply. We did my trial with big curls with a really heavy duty hair spray and they stayed curly all day..the pictures are before the clip ins when my hair was just curled and then after..when my extensions were put it…They can be washed died and styled just like regular hair…They even sell curly hair (mine were straight and we curled them)

If you do braid-and-sew-in or glue-in (what I had) give yourself tons of lead time to get get used to them. My were a hot mess, and they fell out really quickly too. I can’t imagine doing that hair drama w/ my wedding. I think to really dig the extensions, you have to be OK with something that looks a bit like extensions…like fake nails don’t look real, but look nice in their own way. Sure, they will look real in some pics and some of the time in real life, but you’ll be dealing w/ them for what they are a lot too if you have them semi-permanently fixed to your head.

@toBeMrsPierce: That looks great!
So I guess the clip ins would be the way to go then? I really only need them for the day of and the option of removing them myself is pretty appealing.

Check out Sally – they have a few different colors/kinds to choose from. Most stylists nowadays have worked with them. The real cheapy ones can’t be curled well (they melt!) but it sounds like you’re not looking for extra length on their own, just beefing up the hair you’ve got… clip ons are the way to go 🙂
