I haven’t tried extensions from there. 

When I had an a line bob I use to make my own clip ins. I would buy wefts of hair and the clips from the beauty supply store for like $60 and sew them myself. Didn’t take very long, it’s pretty easy to do. Plus, my hair is very thick, so I was able to add more hair to the clips so it matched.  The only thing that would worry me about buying online is getting a colour and texture that matches your real hair. If it’s real hair you can always dye it to match, but that’s a pain

Although I get sew in weaves, a general rule for all methods of hair extensions are 4oz is for added volume, 6oz is a full head, and 8oz is borderlining wig-full, mind you all these weights are give or take an ounce for the size of your head, thickness and densitity of your hair, and length of the extensions (the longer the extensions, the more hair you will need). As pp mentioned, the beauty supply is a good place to start, and if its good quality (note only get hair that is 100% human, usually notated with the word “Remy”) you can style it it (color, perms, you name it) any way you’d style your own. 3 hair companies I’ve heard great things about have been 1. Extensions Plus, 2.Wagman’s 3. His and Her hair, in that order. Good luck!

Almost forgot: generally 1 pack of hair is 4oz, its usually recommended by stylist to buy 2 packs, or 8oz of hair.

@Porkchop:  My mom and I did this, too.  First for my best friend’s wedding when I was Maid/Matron of Honor in 2007, and we just redid an entire set for my upcoming wedding.  I have long hair (hits just above my breast), but my hair is very fine and needs help to be voluminous.  

We made two different types– three sets of long clip-ins that have 3 clips each and span the distance from ear-to-ear.  We also made some individual clip-in pieces in case the stylist prefers them.

We bought the hair from a local beauty shop.  I beleive it was around $50 for the hair and clips.  We sewed the clips in with thread.  The original set from 2007 has held up very well.  I’m really happy with them!

I buy my hair extensions from Sally’s Beauty Supply, they are called Euronext Remy Clip-in.  They have 14″ or 18″ to choose from. I recently bought some 18″ ones which are about $130 for my engagement pictures and plan to wear them again for my wedding. They also have lots of different colors to choose from.  I’ve even dyed the extensions to match my hair and the extensions will last a really long time.  Here’s a pic from my engagement shoot…
