Despite the trend for shorter, sexier hair fashion in Perth, most people still find long, flowing hair more attractive. Unfortunately, if you impulsively chose to follow the fashion at your last haircut, then you have to wait a long time for your hair to grow out. You can opt for human hair extensions to speed up the process.
Here are some important facts you should know before you take the plunge:
Several methods are available to give your hair the length you want. The easiest is the clip-on, but if you want a more natural look, you can try the weave, tape-in, or fusion methods. The weave works best with coarse or curly hair because it keeps the cornrow tighter longer, keeping the hair extensions more firmly anchored. The tape-in and fusion method works with any hair type, but the tape-in method is faster and more affordable.
Asit uses double-sided tape to stick the hair extensions to your natural hair, though, you need to go back every six weeks or so to maintain it. Fusion or bonded hair extensions are more expensive and takes about three hours to do. Since the hair extension bonds to your natural hair through heat, though, it lasts for up to four months.
You can choose human hair extensions in Perth or synthetic hair. Human hair tends to be more expensive at several hundred dollars a bunch, especially if the hair has never undergone any kind of chemical treatment (virgin hair). However, it looks more natural than synthetic hair, and stands a lot more handling without tangling. On the other hand, you can get a bunch of synthetic hair for a lot less.
The hair type you choose will depend largely on how much you are willing to spend, and how natural you want it to look. If you were going to spend for hair extensions anyway, it would be best to get human.
The problem with natural hair is supply. You have to make do with the available colours and texture, which may not necessarily match your natural hair. On the other hand, two-toned hair is in style, so a slightly ombre look will not be out of place. It may be more important to choose hair for its quality than its colour. Choose hair that is not dry, as it tangles more easily, and avoid ultra-shiny hair, as it probably has a silicone coat. It looks fine when you at first application, but when the coat wears off the hair will be dull and dry.
It is important to note that the best human hair extensions are by experienced stylists. The quality and cost will not matter if it the stylist does not treat it the right way. Always go to a reputable stylist to get the ideal hair extensions, so you get the most value for your time and money.
