These days hair extensions have become an integral part of women's cosmetic collections
and they are looked upon as must have fashion accessories not only by the celebrity
figures but also the general public, more so by women who are often in the lime light or

Advent of hair extensions
Actually hair extensions have been in vogue right from the ancient times when people
used wigs, hair weaves and other such techniques to increase the length or the volume of
their existing hairs.
This concept has now become very popular and has become an indispensable part of the
fashion industry and hair extension craft. It is not an exaggeration to say that beauty
industry these days cannot do without hair extensions. And the industry of hair extensions
thrives on the fashion industry!
What are the different types of hair extensions?
The two main types of hair extensions that are more popular are the individual strand
extensions and the other is weft extensions.
In the individual strand hair extensions the technique used is dividing the hair into
smaller sections and adding the extension hair to these strands. Most celebrities opt for
this procedure since it can rarely go wrong. This method is more expensive and lasts for
only a few months after which they begin to fall off.
Weft hair extensions can be compared to a long and luscious curtain of hair and are
attached to the existing hair using cornrows. The flip side of this method is one has to
make periodic visits to the salon and the cornrows are also quite cumbersome and feel
uncomfortable. Advantage is there is no glue used here and as such better for your
existing hair.
The clip in hair extensions that are relatively new in the market have become the most
popular type of remy hair extensions due to the ease of getting them fixed to your hair.
These types of hair extensions are most suited for people who wish to change their
hairstyles more often. Long or short hairstyles can be changed within no time and can be
changed as many times as one whishes to. These are also more popular since they are
much less expensive than the other hair extensions and can be used several times.



Which are the best hair extensions that are more popular?
Surely clip in hair extensions made of real human hair win hands down though real hair
extensions do cost a little more than others. A special evening or a glamorous event, one
can change their hairstyle to suit the need of the moment in a jiffy.
Of course, as the saying goes, each unto his own, every one of us has our own
preferences and each type of hair extension has its own pros and cons.
Finally, whatever type of hair extension one may select, it is important to take good care
of them to make them long last and stay as good as new for a longer period.
