Do you want something different with your hairstyle? Would you like a bit more volume or a fuller hair bunch? Then having hair extensions attached can be a good solution for you. You can easily get longer hair, firmer curls or just more volume: it will give you just what you want. Good extensions are invisible but have a visible result. Hair extensions can be put in all kinds of hair, even in more fragile or thin hair. Are you considering this, but you are not sure what is involved? Getting hair extensions in itself is fairly simple but time consuming process, but you must take into account several important points.
What type of hair extensions will you take?
Before attaching hair extensions you must, of course, determine what type of extension you want. There are two types of hair extensions: permanent and temporary. You attach temporary extensions yourself, usually using clips. We call this variant clip extensions. Permanent extensions are, as the name suggests are permanent. These extensions, therefore, remain in place for quite a long time and need to be put in place by a hair extension professional. Nicole Hudson and her team at the Cronulla salon have been attaching human hair extensions now for decades with hundreds of satisfied customers.
The advantage of clip-in hair extensions is that they do not have to be put on by a professional, and with a little time and effort you can do it yourself. Nicole does advise if you have little experience with putting extensions in to let your partner or friend help you. The trick is to ensure that the extensions look natural and this can be difficult, especially in the beginning. Because they are temporary, clip extensions are suitable for special occasions such as weddings, galas or other parties. You can put them in yourself before and simply take them out before bed that same evening.
The advantage of temporary hair extension is of course also the disadvantage: Temporary extensions are more vulnerable to coming off and they take time to put them in and out. This will not be an issue if you only wear them occasionally.
Permanent hair extensions
If you regularly use clip extensions and are looking for a different solution, it can be nice to have permanent hair extensions applied. Once attached you do not have to put them on and offt. Attaching human hair extensions usually takes about 2 to 3 hours. Exactly how long the hair extensions should take depends on several factors: the length of your hair, your type of hair, the technique used and of course your wishes. If you want to know how long this will take ask Nicole Hudson for a consultation or your stylist about this before treatment. The process of having human hair extensions made consists of two steps: first, the extensions are put in and then they are trimmed. Trimming is important to ensure that the extensions naturally blend into your hair.
