Six Benefits of Hair Extensions



The history of hair extensions dates all the way back to Cleopatra, when women wore wigs, sewn-on hair pieces and braids made of human hair and dyed sheep’s wool.


Thankfully (especially in summer) today’s hair extensions are no longer made of wool! They’re also much more accessible, with a hair extensions salon in pretty much every town.


Depending on the length and quality, hair extensions can be expensive, ranging from $150 to $1,600. But despite the price, many women are choosing to have them fitted. Here are six reasons why women love hair extensions.



1) Hair extensions can hide split ends

While many women love the idea of long hair, they struggle with split ends. As their hair starts to grow longer, the split ends become more visible. Luckily, this is something that hair extensions can help you with.


Hair extensions will help to hide your split ends, making your hair look more vibrant and healthy – and making your long hair goals much quicker and easier to attain.




2) They can add color

The days when women only wore hair extensions to give their hair length have long passed. If you’re looking for an easy and healthy way of changing how your hair looks, hair extensions can be the solution.


Hair extensions that come in bold and bright colors are now available in different salons – you can even choose hair extensions with Ombré or Balayage looks. All without worrying about any damage caused by dye.


If you want to add subtle colors to your hair subtly, place the hair extensions on the bottom half of your head. If you want to have a showstopper hairstyle, fill your hair with colors from top to bottom.



3) They can give your hair more volume

Bored of lank, straight hair? Hair extensions can add instant volume to your hair, making it look bouncy and thick.


Ever wonder how celebrities nailed their bouncy red carpet hair styles? The chances are, the glossy, voluminous mane you’re ending are hair extensions added by a hair stylist.



4) They can add length

Growing your hair will require time (and a lot of patience). Depending on your desired length, you may need to wait for a couple of years before you can achieve your goal. But you can speed the process up with hair extensions.


Hair extensions are the perfect solution for people who want to ‘grow’ their hair fast. You can even style and cut your hair extensions to create a more subtle and understated length. Or you can go all out with your hair extensions – even sporting waist-length hair if you wish.



5) They can let you play around with hairstyles

Love playing around with different hairstyles, but either don’t have the length, or worried about the damage you may do to your hair? Hair extensions are the answer.
