Extend your options

Ladies, I have the solution to all your problems well, hair problems, anyway.

Are you constantly complaining about your hair because it is too thin, the wrong color, fine, fragile, too short, boring, suffer from alopecia, hair growing back after chemo or growing out all or part of your hair? Have you thought about hair extensions? This is a growing trend in our area, which I believe is due to more stylists getting the training needed to be able to offer this to our clients.

Whenever you see someone in a magazine or on TV with thick, luxurious hair, I promise you she has extensions. They are used for length, volume and, more recently, for color. You can add highlights, a darker color or even a bright color in minutes without having to color your own hair at all! I love the idea of the fun bright colors for all ages because of the lack of commitment and all with no risk of hair damage or fading! Most of the bright colors (pinks, purples, blues, yellow, greens) don't last long on natural hair because your hair first has to be lightened and bright colors (known as direct dyes) fade quickly. The process is damaging to your hair but not so with extensions. These colors are vibrant and the color lasts as long as they do, which is three to six months with proper care.

Extensions can be a long, tedious and expensive process, but they don't have to be. The exciting part is that there are so many options that anyone can benefit. You are able to add volume and length easily in only a couple of hours (tops), and it will last for months! On top of all those benefits, extensions are easy to maintain and comfortable to wear.

Want to be even trendier? That is where the hottest new trend feather extensions - come in! You now can add feathers of all shapes, sizes and colors into your hair. They can be washed and curled just like your hair. Who knew? Another option is swarovski crystals added into your hair. Here is where I get excited and think how much better a prom up-style can be now. Forget the glitter we used in the past - what sparkles more than swarovski crystals?

Getting excited? I was too! I recommend that you do some research and find yourself an expert. Not all extensions are created equal no matter what they try to tell you. You are going to be so much happier when you invest your time and money into a quality product than when you try to find it cheaper elsewhere. Remember, you get what you pay for.
