I’m considering hair extensions for my wedding to add volume especaially because I’m probably going for a half-up, half-down hair style for the day.
I’m wondering if you prefer clip ins or tape or what you’d recommend for a wedding day?
My hair dresser thinks I’ll get more use out of clip ins- be able to trial them and choose whether or not to use them for the wedding day.
What are your thougthts?

I’ll be using clip-ins for my wedding. They’re much easier to put in/take out and they cause less damage to your hair.
ETA: What the poster below me suggested is really only a good option if the half-up, half-down hairstyle is what you’re definitely going to go with. It also really depends on your hair type and where you’re really needing the added volume. Individual clip-ins allow you more flexibility – not only do they have better movement, but you can put them in the areas you end up needing them the most. I’ve also found that the halos tend to be a little heavier, so if you’re not used to wearing extensions that is something to think about. Halos are less work in that it is just one piece.
I would do a hair trial where you can try a couple different styles. I originally thought I wanted a half-up, half-down look, but it turned out that it just didn’t look as good with my hair type. I felt like Amy Winehouse because so much had to be done just to get it to look like I had more hair. So, you may or may not end up changing your mind. I would definitely speak with your hair stylist.

I’d recommend halo extensions! Kind of like clip ins, but in my opinion way way easier and way more comfortable.

I suggest clip-ins. They’re really easy to use, plus you can put them in and take them out how ever often you would like. I got mine from http://www.luxyhair.com. Their extensions are awesome and the owners have wonderful videos on how to clip them in and style them. Check them out!

Ive done halo, clip in, and tape in (I like adding length to me shoulder length hair lol). It really depends on what you want.
Tape in is more expensive and takes more work to maintain, but they can last 6-8 weeks:). I would only do tape in if you want to wear the hair for longer than your wedding.
Otherwise, I love my halo, it’s so quick and easy to flip in. I’d do a halo if DIY in my hair for the wedding.
I feel clip ins can blend very well and if someone else is applying them, I would do the clip ins.
Also, good choice on hair styles , those are a lot of the ones I sent my stylist. I’m doing tape I’m, but i also want long hair on the honeymoon. The only difference from my normal installation is that I’m paying a professional to do it since normally I DIY.

I would definitely go clip ins if you aren’t used to extensions. Removable, less damage and I agree if someone is styling your hair they are very easy to blend. I wore mine for 9 hours on my trial day and had no issues (also went with a half up style).

I also had a half up/down hairstyle and did clip-ins.

I’m using clip ins for my wedding day. I’ve already bought them and I’ve used them for my bridal shower and will be using them for my bachelorette party next weekend as well. They weren’t cheap so I wanted to continue using them after the wedding as well for special occasions.

I also want to add that real human hair extensions (which is what you’ll need) are expensive and you can’t return them, which makes it even more important to speak to your stylist before purchasing any. My stylist preferred individual clip-ins over the halo (even when I was considering a half up, half down style), so it is a good thing I consulted her before purchasing or else I would’ve been out $200 for extensions I couldn’t/wouldn’t use because I almost bought the halo (but this is coming from someone who doesn’t really foresee using extensions much in day to day life, so having two different sets wouldn’t make sense).

I vote for clip-ins. I like the convenience of being able to remove them. You can do more with clip-ins.
