Hair extensions are lengths of either real or synthetic hair that can be affixed close to the scalp through a number of systems. When well matched in color and texture, and professionally applied by a competent extensionist, hair extensions mix in and move naturally with your own hair, making it difficult to tell you are wearing them. They can provide volume, extend hair, and add highlights or lowlights without the harshness of coloring your own hair.
Hair extensions come in many colors, textures, styles and lengths to match any hair type. Natural or human hair extensions are more expensive because they can be colored, set, curled or treated.
Hair Extensions with clip or glue
The Individual method involves taking small amounts (maybe 20-50 strands) of extension hair and applying to small sections of your own hair by either weaving in, heat fusing explanatory), gluing, clipping,These extensions usually only last a few months before they have to be taken out and completely re-done.
Weft hair extension
Wefts are attached to your head by sewing them to a tiny braid or track made out of your own hair. The track runs horizontally around the back of your head. The tracks are done in the middle of your scalp underneath your hairline so you can't see them.
The crown area of your own hair covers the top track making the extensions seem invisible. The number and size of tracks matches the number and size of wefts. The wefts and tracks ideally should be made in different sizes in order to match exactly the way your hair would look if you had grown it that way yourself.
Tiny braids hold hair extensions against the scalp, like cornrows, except these braids are hidden.
The extensions used for this method have a latex plug meant to be glued to your own hair for short terms use. Because this method is fast it’s also inexpensive.

It is very important that Hair Extensions are removed correctly. The long term health of your hair is an important consideration, please do not attempt this yourself!
