I’m wondering if its worth it or not to get hair extensions for the big day.
Here is the hairstyle I am thinking of:
Reasons I think it would be good:
My hair is on the thinner side so I dont know for the big curls
Also My hair is long but definitely not long enough for this style
How much were your hair extensions?
Were they worth it?
Do you recommend them?
How long do they last?
And how long before the wedding should I get them?

I think it’s worth it , but I would clip them in … sewing them in can be damaging to your real hair , and it’s just for the day and you can easily style clip ins … Good ext will cost anywhere from 100+ depends on length and ounces ( I usually get 4 ounces but would never use the whole thing) that you’re buying … I like Indian Remy brand… I do them once in a while for length
hope that helps a little

@engleman10513: What does your hair look like?

Clip ins are the cheapest. But make sure you get good quality ones. I have found the best ones are the ones you order online. (HeadKandy) (Foxylocks) If you want a more long lasting effect (3-6 months) be ready to pay for it, those are expensive!!

Another vote for extensions. I am going to get them for my hair.
I think that another good thing about them is that they hold a curl better than most hair (I know my hair doesn’t hold a curl well!) so your hair stays curly longer. Your natural hair falls on the extensions, and they take the shape of the curls in the extensions, thus your hair stays “curly” longer.

I wore hair extensions to my wedding. I loved them. I was offered two choices – day-of extensions and long-term (1-2 mos) semi-permanent extensions. I decided to do just the glue-on day-of type because the maintenance for the other one was too much for my lazy self after the wedding.
They were easy to use and fun. They did last a few days after the wedding and came off with conditioner. They are re-usable too. I believe I paid $100 for the application of them and $50 per set (x2 because my hair is two different colors even though we didn’t use all of them). The more permanent ones cost I believe $300 to place and I think $100 per color type, strand groupings.
I personally loved how thick my hair felt. I already have long hair, but I wanted them for volume and they definitely delivered. It was a little odd knowing that I was wearing real human hair, but I tried not to think about it.

Thanks for the advice ladies. I never thought of clip-ins but thats a wonderful idea!!! I like that I could use them whenever.
To answer your question, My hair is a medium brown, boob to waist length but not super thick to get this style.

@engleman10513: I wouldn’t do it unless you clip them in.

I wore clip in human hair extensions that I got from Amazon.com for like $30! And they worked out perfect! I still have them actually and wear them sometimes. They came straight but because they are human hair I curl them with my curlers.

@sommertime: Wow yeah Im looking now. I had no idea they were this affordable! For some reason I thought it would be like $400

I bought mine off ebay and absolutely love them! I used them for my engagement pics and plan to use them for my wedding as well. They were clip in remy hair. 120 grams and 20″ long for about $40-$50. Seems to be pretty good quality and they hold curls beautifully 🙂
extensions are totally worth it! Do it!

@engleman10513: i had hair extensions when i had shorter hair (my hair now is probably a few inches longer than the girl in your pic) and they were taped in. it cost me about $300 for half head. It kind of ruined my hair so i do agree with a pp in that you should opt for clip ins. way more safer for your hair. The tape/ glue ins get ratty and gross after a month or so, and seriously so much upkeep in terms of certain shampoo u should be using and brushing can get difficult. (=
pretty hairstyle though!! what do you plan for your ‘do on the wedding day?

@engleman10513: I know right?? Well hair extensions can be really expensive but I really just wanted them for the wedding and didn’t want to spend tons. The Amazon ones I got are actually really good quality!! And no one would’ve guessed that I had extensions in. Just make sure you read the reviews and get extensions that are truly human hair so they can curl.

Yes buy extensions.. I bought remy 100% human hair clip in extensions for my big day.. I wanted my hair to look fuller.. I went to Sally’s and bought the 18 in.. Original cost was $139.. I got the Sally’s beauty club card at it gave me a discount to $125 but for month of may when I bought them hair extensions were $10 off so I paid $115 before tax.. I love them them, they stayed put and blended in great… I researched a lot online but was scared because all the reviews and most were expensive.. plus I didn’t want to wait.. It was easier to go to my local Sally’s and get them same day.
