I have been using clip in extensions for years. I have also had sew in weaves. It seems like the sew in weaves only look real if you leave some hair out. I am doing an 11-day cruise right after my wedding for my honeymoon so I will likely be in the water everyday, either in the pool or in the ocean. Thus, I am trying to decide whether a sew in or clip ins would be better.
I have had full sew ins before and it did not look real. I have tried the invisible part, which has to be repaired everytime you wash your hair and that’s a mess. I recently looked into micro-link extensions, but they are so expensive. I’m just not willing to pay $400 for a weave after spending all this money on a wedding.
Any suggestions on weave versus clip ins? I have had clip ins on a cruise before and it really wasn’t a big problem. I could let my hair dry naturally and then flat iron it and curl it again. I wore it in a cute ponytail most of the time to the side.
I really want ESPECIALLY nice looking hair for my wedding day but don’t know which way to go. And if anyone knows of a great salon to do my hair for my wedding, whether it be the weave or styling my clip ins in or around the Atlanta area please let me know. It would be a great help. I’m getting married in 3 weeks so I really need to make a decision! Thanks for your help!

I’ve never ad sew in, but I have had micro link. I personally prefer clip ins as the micro beads are really hard to keep tangle free. Micro bead gets matted quickly around the beads if your not comitted to spending a LOT of time on them. IMO also more uncomfortable than clip ins.

@Leemarie: WOW really about the micro links??!!! Thank you soooooo much for letting me know that. They seemed like a great alternative to sew ins. I thought about getting the sew in where they leave some of your hair out. But I want the style where my hair is slicked back with a tiara and then my veil. So I don’t think they would be able to do that with a sew in. I’ve used clip ins for years and I like them. But I appreciate the info on the micro links because they’re super expensive.

sew in is the best way to go.. its the least hassle especially getting in and out of water, ive used them all and honestly sewin is the easiest. For it to look naturaljust like anything else you have to do your research, find hair that matches your texture. The reason hairlooks fake is because it doesnt match your natural hair. Dont get a super shiny silky hair if yours is more dull. Also its key to find a good hair dresser because super big braids make the hair pushout and it looks hideous. Definitely u have to leave a little hair out in the front, back and around the edges so u have more versatility (ponytails, down etc)
