Getting Perfect Hair Extensions
To get the perfect hair extensions you must figure out what type of extensions are best suited for you. There are several different types of hair extensions. For example, there are I-tips, tape-ins and ones that are actually glued to your hair (Keratin). Deciding on which kind is bested suited for you is important because the wrong type can be very damaging. Sometimes a combination is best. For example, if you have fine hair on the sides and thicker in the back it is often best to put tape in on the back and i-tips on the sides.
Matching the type of hair extensions best suited for your hair also depends on the desired length. This is because types of extensions fall differently and have different looks. For example, the i-tips are applied in a horseshoe section and are smaller in diameter. They often work better on people with finer hair or people who wear their hair up a lot.
The tape-in extensions tend to work a little better on people with thicker hair. The keratin extensions work best if your hair short. This is because it is easier to build a base. Also, if your hair is shorter and you are trying to extend the length you may need to wear it layered in order to blend your hair with the extensions in order to make it look natural.
Figuring out which technique of hair extensions is perfect for you requires a consultation. Not only can a qualified stylist can tell you what type of extensions are best suited for your texture of hair, there is also the color match to consider. I highly recommend having the same stylist color your hair and do the extensions. There are several reasons for this. But the main reason is that, your stylist knows exactly what color of extensions s/he is using and can match the color easier than someone not doing the extensions.
