Nice-looking extensions are really expensive and take a lot of time to get put in. Like 6+ hours for a full head and $300 and up for the labor, plus the cost of the hair. If you’re going to do it, make sure you have the time and money to do it right. Low-grade hair or unskilled application makes extensions look pretty ratty. The clip-on ones are a bit cheaper but don’t usually look as natural, especially with fine hair.

I bought clip in extensions online and they are fabulous. They are from Headcandy and cost me about $170. This photo is from my trial this week:

I’m getting one of my BM’s to put some extensions in for me maybe a few weeks before the wedding. I have alot of hair but my length isn’t going to be where I want it to be for the hairstyle I want. I’m doing a half updo so half of it will be left down, extensions will just help fill it out more and give the stylist enough hair to work with for the updo part without leaving my hair thats left down looking too thin. I haven’t decided yet what type of extensions, but my Bridesmaid or Best Man thats doing it is a hair stylist so I will just have to pay for the extensions themselves at cost, no labour charge thankfully.

@amille56:  For clip in extensions, you remove them at the end of the night. But, they keep their curl so styling a few days later probably would be easier/faster. I have put them in myself and styled my hair just like I normally would but for my wedding I am having it professionally done. 

You Tube video for “headcandy extensions” and you can see other women with their own hair put the extensions in / style them from start to finish. 

Here is a photo of me with my “normal hair” unstyled and another photo with the extensions – from the side.

I love my clip in extensions!  They weren’t super cheap as they’re real hair ones but they look great and I love having the extra volume as I have really thin hair too.  I’ve got 2 sets – one really long and one around the same length as my hair is now.  I think they’re worth the $ cos they last a long time, the real hair you can actually wash (though not all the time) and style with your curlers or straightener. 

I’ve had the long ones for almost 5 years now and they’re still great.  The best part about the clip in ones is you can use just one piece to add volume to a pony tail too cos I hate my naturally limp little pony  😉

Mrs. Doe had extensions for her wedding, and they looked great! She wrote about her extensions in this post:

She’s also in the middle of recapping her wedding, so there’s lots of great pro pics of her amazing hair!

I did HeadCandy too and loved them. Here is a pic with them straight and then styled messy with some waves. I wear them all the time now when I go out.
