You won’t be surprised to learn that the trouble with hair is that it takes so long to grow. If you’ve been living with a medium cut for a while but suddenly want to go long and luscious, there’s only one way to do it, short of buying a wig.
Hair extensions are becoming increasingly popular with women of all ages, and even some men.
Hair extensions can not only give you more length, they can add plenty of volume as well. In the hands of a highly qualified hair stylist they can transform your look into next to now time. You’ve also got the choice of semi-permanent and clip in varieties – with the latter becoming increasingly popular over the next year or so.
Of course, the first thing that people tend to think of when you mention extensions is lengthening their hair. It’s a cheats way of not waiting for it to grow but it’s also a brilliant opportunity to get the look that you want right now. These kinds of extensions have been made even more popular by celebrities over recent years and the improvement in technology and design means that products on the market are now more accessible, safer and better looking than ever before.
Another way that extensions can transform you hair is by adding extra volume. If you have normally flat looking locks but want to create something with greater impact, perhaps for that night out or a formal occasion, it can certainly give you the volume you are looking for. It can even be used to add fringes that transform your look in just a few seconds.
For those fed up with their long straight hair (or even short straight hair), extensions are increasingly being used not just to add volume but curls as well. They can also be used to add new colour and, in the hands of an expert stylist, completely transform your look.
Extensions Have Become More Versatile
The increased use of extensions is largely down to improvements in the technology. Products like Racoon hair extensions bond almost seamlessly with your natural hair and can be used to create a variety of different looks. One of the issues that people often have is that they are worried the extensions are going to damage their existing hair. This may have been the case in the past but it’s not anymore.
Companies like Racoon use natural bonding products. It usually takes around three to four hours to administer extensions, depending on the type of look you are after. The range of colours available means that you can find something to blend really well with your existing hair and most of the time people won’t be able to tell that you’ve had extensions put in at all.
If you don’t really like the bonding process with these kinds of extensions, however, there’s always the choice of getting clip hair varieties that you can take out easily when you want. These have become increasingly popular in the last few years and can be used to add volume, length and definition – the perfect combination if you’re heading out for the evening.
