My basic rule for life is: if it seems too good to be true it probably is.
Anyways, I think I want hair extensions for my wedding. My hair is just longer than shoulder length and I want long curly hair pulled half up for my wedding day. My salon will use clip-in extensions if I bring them in, but they only sell the sewn-in ones (for $$) so I can’t buy them there. I’ve been researching online but they are all so expensive it seems!
Then I found these: http://www.sallybeauty.com/hair-extensions/SBS-374600,default,pd.html?green=14834402752 . They seem kind of too good to be true. Great price, great reviews… am I missing something?
They are human hair, remi. They get good reviews. The only maybe downsides I see are:
1) limited color options
2) some of the reviews say they don’t last a long time (like, over a year.)
I don’t mind the color issue and I don’t plan to wear these more than once. Any ideas on if this is really a good deal? Or am I missing a glaring reason not to purchase?

I used hair extensions for my wedding, and they turned out FABULOUS. I went with my stylist to the closest Sally Beauty Supply and bought them in person. The ones I got were also real human hair, (the Design Lengths Clip-In Remy Wavy Extensions). I would suggest going to the nearest Sally Beauty store in person and making sure they match your hair color. Mine matched my hair color perfectly, and you could not tell at all that they were extensions. My stylist worked them in to my real hair, trimmed them a bit (mine were a bit longer than I wanted), curled them, and they were gorgeous. I used them twice- once for the hair trial and again for the wedding day. In between uses, I washed them with shampoo and a bit of conditioner, and dried them so they would be ready to use on my wedding day. I highly recommend the real hair ones. My Mom has synthetic hair extensions, and she said the ones I bought are better quality. Hope this helps. Good luck! 🙂

Thanks for the thoughts! I’ll have to stop by Sallys and see what they have. 🙂 Anyone else?

I’m curious about this too! My hair stylist recommended that I get some clip-ins to use for my up-do to add some bulk to the bun part. I was planning to check out Sally Beauty.

I plan on wearing my HeadKandy extensions, they will help you color match if you send them a picture of yourself, and, they are clip-in and I have worn them all day without them hurting my head! I love them!

@CorgiTales I bought those same exact extensions a few years ago. You can dye them DARKER to match your hair color but you CAN NOT bleach them. I tried to put highlights in a few tracks and it ended up mealting the hair 🙁 Also another thing about dying them, you can only do it with human hair. You could also try a ethnic hair shop. An african american friend of mine took me to one. They have SO many choices. You could buy the tracks and just sew in the clips yourself. It’s pretty easy.

I think this is a good deal. You can go to a Sally’s store and look at the extensions and see if they match your color. You can even dye extensions darker to match (but not lighter). Sally has limited color options, and you have to look at how many grams of hair you are getting. Sally’s are thinner than some other brands. That is why it is cheaper. But I dont think it matters if it is thinner bc with my extensions I dont use all the wefts at one time. Too much hair.
