Extensions Vs Wigs: How To Get Your Dream Hair

Not everyone is born with hair that they love or that they want to work with. If you feel like you need a little bit of help with your hair, then there are a few different options that you may want to look into including hair extensions and wigs. 

Hair Extensions

Hair extensions are one way people to add both volume and length to their existing hair, and they can be done in a variety of different ways. Depending on your budget and the maintenance you want, one option may be better than another. 

Sewn-In Extensions: Sewn-in extensions are a bit more expensive and can cost you almost a thousand dollars when they are done, but they don't require too much maintenance. Although you will have to have them moved up every couple of months (as your hair grows), you can pretty much just treat them like your natural hair when you wash and style them. 

Tape-In Extensions: Tape-in extensions are similar to sewn-in extensions but rather than the hairstylist using needle and thread to sew the extensions into your natural hair, they will use thin strips of tape instead. These strips of tape are really strong and can last a long time without the glue falling apart. 

Clip-In Extensions: Clip-in extensions are the most affordable types of extensions out there and are also great if you're not looking for something permanent. These extensions attach to the top of your hair with small hair clips that you can take out whenever you want. When you're looking for clip-in extensions, make sure you get Remy hair that is real hair because artificial hair won't last very long. Once you clip these into your head, you can style them like normal, but don't blow dry them because that could weaken them. 


Another trend that a lot of celebrities are hopping on board with are wigs. When choosing a wig, look for one that's made of real human hair. Although these will cost you a lot more money, they will look more natural and will last longer, and you'll even be able to have them cut and styled so that they look even more natural. Once you find a human hair wig, take it into your hairstylist and have them give it the cut that you've been wanting. Then, make sure that you wear a hairnet over your natural hair before you put the wig on; that way it lays flat against your head.
