WHAT ARE THE BEST HAIR EXTENSIONS? 150 150 Crystal

WHAT ARE THE BEST HAIR EXTENSIONS?

Apart from the fact that hair extensions come in different sizes, they can also be applied in many different ways. Some are more temporary than others, some can be applied at home and some are put in at a hair salon. It is important to be educated on the hair extensions type in order that you may have a knowledge of the best application option for you.

WHAT TYPE OF HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE BEST?

First thing on your mind should be the kind of hair extension you want. There are hair extensions are made from synthetic hair, heat resistant synthetic hair, human hair, or Remy human hair. Choosing from these options all comes down to what you are looking for, so here’s a checklist to help you out:

  • Do you plan to wear your extensions everyday, or occasionally?
  • How much have you budgeted to buy this extension?
  • Do you want bright-colored extensions or a more natural look?
  • Do you intend styling your extensions with heat tools?

Human hair clips in extensions are a good choice for you if you plan wearing your extensions on a daily basis. These extensions last the longest and are the best blend with your biological hair. They are soft, have the best look and feel as if they are real hair. Human hair extensions are more costly than synthetic ones, however because they last longer you won’t need to purchase them often. Synthetic extensions are less expensive, but you will need replace them more often.

Synthetic hair extensions are available in brighter colors like pink, blue, and purple. Human hair usually only comes in natural tones. So synthetic has its perks, too! Especially if you have a wild side and love to put on the Barbie girl appearance.

Not all synthetic hair can be styled with a straightener or curling iron, you can’t change the way they are styled. The good news, however is that we have some gorgeous heat-friendly clip in extensions that can be styled just like real hair.

THE BEST TYPE OF HAIR EXTENSIONS

There are different ways to apply hair extensions. Micro bead individual extensions can be applied in a salon by a professional and it typically last several weeks. But while this is a great idea in concept, it does require greater care to avoid breakage and damage. They are also uncomfortable for sleep because the bead knots can be felt on your head and the tightness can cause traction alopecia, which means hair loss.

Another option for long-lasting extensions are tape in hair extensions. A high-grade tape is used to stick them to the natural hair. While great for assuring the extensions stay in place, the removal process is requires pulling the tape off the hair and using a spray to help ease the process. It must be done by an experienced professional to avoid breakage, with their experience you are in safe hands.

One of the reasons we sell clip in hair extensions is because they are temporary and are removed from your biological hair daily. They are worn temporarily, the clips can be moved around, lessening the risk of traction alopecia and breakage. They are also long-lasting because they don’t need replacing as frequently when cared for correctly.

There are pros and cons for every type of extension however with proper care and maintenance routines they can all be worn safely. Now it is up to to you to decide which type is best for your life style. If you have any questions feel free to send us a text or give us a call.

How do you wash human hair extensions? 150 150 Crystal

How do you wash human hair extensions?

As a woman, there’s nothing that makes you feel more beautiful than a look that’s flawless from top to bottom. I’m talking about makeup on point, new shoes, an edgy outfit, and of course — long, gorgeous locks! Now, because of genetics, not all of us are born with gorgeous, naturally long hair that looks out of a magazine, or perhaps we went through a bad breakup and cut it off (girl, we’ve all been there).

But no matter the reason, that’s what human hair extensions are for! They help to enhance our beauty and confidence all the while looking flawlessly natural in the process.

But while hair extensions can be an awesome addition to any look, there does come a point where they need to be cleaned, and that’s where it can get tricky.

Not everyone has mastered the art of washing human hair extensions the right way, which can ultimately result in damage they just can’t heal from! For that reason, we’ve put together an easy go-to guide to help you wash and care for your extensions the right way, and make sure you’re getting the most out of them. Let’s get started!

WASHING HUMAN HAIR EXTENSIONS

1) De-tangle Your Clip Ins

Clip-In human hair extensions require a special wide-tooth comb for detangling. Do this before beginning to wash in order to give them a proper cleanse and truly clean away any dirt or grime.

2) Use Warm Water (not too hot, not too cold)

Next, fill a sink or bucket with warm water. It is extremely important in this step that you don’t use hot water, as this can damage extensions and cause them to wear away easier and appear more dull. Make sure the water isn’t cold either, as this will not properly cleanse the oils and dirt away.

3) Soak Extensions

Next, hold your extension piece by the clip and make sure you dip it all the way up until that point. You don’t want to get water on the clip of the extension, as this can ruin it and make it very difficult to attach again. And just as you would with your natural hair, run a comb gently through the hair extensions to ensure you are wetting all hair pieces for a full and proper cleanse.

4) Lather, Rinse, & Repeat!

Next, you’ll want to select a shampoo that’s gentle and moisturizing. Shampoos that are free of sulfates (which are very damaging) are best for this! For this, we would recommend the human hair extensions shampoo Pure Care Hydra Shampoo by BeautiMark.

This one is a beautiful blend of amino acids and avocado oil for safe, natural, and pure hydration for healthy hair!

After selecting the shampoo of your choice, make sure you lather your extensions fully and begin to work it into the hair, avoiding the clip. If you run into tangles, gently brush through the hair once more to ensure you have covered all bits of hair with the shampoo.

5) Rinse with Warm Water

Next, gently dip your extension back into the water and gently squeeze from the clip down to the ends, gently squeezing out all shampoos. Then, run it under a faucet of warm water until the water runs clear.

6) Work In Conditioner

Afterwards, you can choose your favorite conditioner to work into the hair! What we would recommend is the Pure Care Hydra Conditioner by BeautiMark. This conditioner for human hair extensions is sulfate free, with the essential amino acid and antioxidant compound for hydration, strength, and natural shine.

Work the conditioner from top to bottom, greatly focusing on the middle and ends, as this is where most damage occurs. Work the conditioner through as if it were your own hair and allow it to sit for a minute or two before rinsing with warm water once more.

7) Allow To Air Dry

And lastly, allow your hair extensions to air dry instead of blow drying or towel drying. Blow-drying and towel drying can cause damage and can dry out your extensions — which we definitely don’t want! Use clothespins to hang them on a clothing hanger so they can dry sitting straight up.

And after that you’re done! Simple, right? Now go show those extensions who’s boss and rock them, girl!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HAIR EXTENSIONS BEFORE YOUR WEDDING 150 150 Crystal

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HAIR EXTENSIONS BEFORE YOUR WEDDING

Are you thinking of any hair extension that will suit you on your wedding day? From the types of hairstyling tips, here are the necessary things you should know ahead of your big day.

Things you must know about hair extensions before your wedding

On your wedding day, you would like to look nice starting from your top to toe. There is no better place to start apart from starting with your hair. Hair extensions can go a great way in raising your bridal hair in case you want to change the length of your hair and as well add thickness to it.

How can a bride choose her hairstyle with the help of a hair extension?

So many brides always have the idea or the way which they would want their hair to look like on the day of their wedding, but most times their stylist will say that they would have looked better if they had added just a little bit hair.

Types of hair extensions

Five different types of hair extensions are very popular. At Hottie Hair Salon & Extension Store we also offer seamless clip-ins as a temporary hair extension method.

  • Clip-In Pieces
  • Invisible Tape-In Hair (tape method)
  • Fusion Hair aka micro bond method
  • Weft Hair aka weaves (beaded weft method)
  • I-Tip Hair aka micro ring method

Fusion hair extensions (micro bonds)

Fusion hair extension is bonds in which keratin resin are attached to it, and also an ideal for medium to good hair types. Micro bonds method is the most modest method which helps you apply the hair even in the smallest of areas. However, this cannot be used again for the second time, so if you so much like your long and fuller hair after, it means you will likely be buying new hair every three months.

I-Tip hair aka micro ring method

Micro rings method is also considered to last long just like the micro bond method type of hair extension, it lasts at least three months. However, micro rings method can be reused unlike the micro bonds, and so it is costlier than others if you want to budget for it, and are also the best choice to make when you think of a quality hair for your wedding. Also, it is possible to adjust the length a little bit (maybe half an inch) when you have the hair refit.

Invisible Tape-In hair extensions

How do they work?

Tape-in hair extension is made with two pieces of hair sandwiched together using a medical A-grade tape. This is widely used by people who already have good-looking hair but want to add volume. Tape hair extensions are great introductions for people who had never used any hair extension before. Tape hair extension is seen to be semi-permanent because it lasts between 6 – 8 weeks. If you don’t fix the tape in hair extension properly, it will likely cause some damage to your hair, however, you may lose it a little bit of length when you are refitting.

Clip-In hair extensions

The seamless clip-ins from Hottie Hair Salon & Extensions Store are suitable for most hair types. There are classified to be under a temporary method because they do not last long. So, for you to avoid any form of damage to your hair, it should only be worn a maximum of three to four times a week and don’t forget to remove it before you go to bed.

Clip-in hair extensions are one of the options you have to choose yourself if you want to add length and thickness for a one-time occasion like a wedding.

What is the best hair extension for your wedding?

This wholly depends on the bride and her choices, all the above methods have their advantages and disadvantages, so we recommend you consult experts first before you choose the type of hair to buy. Different methods suit different people. It also depends on the type of style the bride wants to wear on her wedding day.

For instance, tape extensions are great for a Boho look, adding volume to hair-down styles, but won’t work for sleek updos.

Also, if the bride wants to keep her hair and maintain it for a while after using it in the wedding, or wants to use it in her honeymoon, she has to make sure she buys a good quality hair.

How to look after your hair extensions?

Hottie Hair Salon & Extensions always talk about maintenance and aftercare with each of their clients and also gives a leaflet that contains the details about aftercare to each of their clients to take home and read at their leisure time so that they will know what to do and how to take care of their hair extensions. Simple things like using a good quality shampoo to wash the hair, use of soft-bristle brush and a good hydrating conditioner will go a long way to keep your look better for a longer time.

Avoiding to wear your hair in a high bun or ponytail will also help, and always dry your hair at the root. We also asked the experts that work at Hottie Hair Salon & Extensions about the way brides would plan their bridal hair before their wedding day.

When will the bride get the hair extension fitted for her wedding?

I will suggest you get the Tape-In hair extension fitted for a week or two before the wedding. This will give the bride time to wash it and also plan her desired look, and get the feeling of having extensions.

Tape-In hair extensions can be worn by the bride up to three times so that the bride can wear her hair extension to her honeymoon. Also, we recommend the bride have another refit before her honeymoon.

Will the extensions show if the bride has an up-do?

If the extensions are well fixed on the head, it will not show. A pro in hair extension fixing can fix the hair extensions in the proper place and it will not show when the bride has an up-do.

Do Tape-In extensions cause damage to the hair?

Tape-In extensions will not damage or be harmful to your natural hair if properly applied by an expert. Also, choosing a good brand of hair extension for your wedding will be of help. So, the combination of an expert in the application of hair extension and a good brand will cause no damage to your natural hair.

When you take a glance at Hollywood red carpets, you will see various fascinating options for hair extension. You might be tempted to adopt one of these fabulous styles to pep your hair on your wedding day. However, there are several factors to consider before reaching a decision. Don’t get ahead of yourself; you deserve the best for your d-day.

Of course, you would want to look your best on your wedding day. At the same time, you must be comfortable. One of the first decisions you have to make is to decide on the type of hair extension you want to use. After that, you determine the kind of style you want to wear. Justin Espinoza, who is the master stylist at Hottie Hair Salon, gave some useful tips regarding hair extensions. Espinoza said that an easy way to navigate through options is to decide to wear the extension upwards or downwards. 

Crystal Frehner, the co-founder of Hottie Hair Extensions and Hair Salon in Las Vegas, affirmed her salon had hosted several brides and bridal trains over the years. She said that most brides use high extensions on their wedding day.

Extensions are great for a wedding day as the increased length and volume of hair increase the grandeur of the wedding veil. Frehner explained further that clip-in extensions are the most commonly used extension types for the bride and her bridal train. She said clip-ins present a simple, effective, and cost-efficient means of adding volume, length, and color to hair.  

“At Hottie Hair, we usually advise you to come for a trial before the wedding day. Our hairstylists seize the opportunity to review various hairstyles with you. After that, they create the necessary customization and cut the perfect blend that gives you a perfect look on your day,” says Frehner.

Frehner explained that though clip-ins do require some work in advance. There is a need to prepare them before the wedding day to create the style the bride desires. A typical prep scenario is the curling of the extensions with the right iron and keeping it in shape with a holding spray. Such background work is required for a style that involves waves. “Some styles may require the use of set-in pin curls which are equally excellent,” says Espinoza

The bride can choose to detach the temporary extensions immediately after the wedding day. Tape in extensions are a better option for those who want to keep the extension for more extended periods. Espinoza cautioned ladies that want to wear more permanent hair extension about the need for consistent home and salon maintenance. She also hinted that extremely curly hairs would not align properly with tape in extensions. “Hottie Hair is most appropriate in such scenarios, it works excellently for both wavy and straight hair textures,” says Espinoza.

Finally, bear in mind that your wedding day is a lifetime event. You deserve the best, but you should not take risks. That is why you should consult a professional stylist to know if extensions are suitable for your hair type before your wedding day. Buy quality extensions and seek the service of a reputable stylist to help create a styling plan towards your wedding day. ” The plan should include extension customization which gives a perfect blend of color, shape that suits your shape and appearance perfectly,” Espinoza advised.

Should You Consider Hair Extensions for Your Wedding? 150 150 Crystal

Should You Consider Hair Extensions for Your Wedding?

There are multiple wedding hair extensions to choose from, offering a variety of solutions for the bride to be to obtain perfect hair. Regardless of whether you are seeking superior style-holding power, long for ultimate volume or dream of luxuriously long locks, there is a hair extension option for you. Regardless of color, length or texture, we consulted beauty pros to help us compile the top reasons why you should consider hair extensions for your wedding.

We have all scrolled in awe of Pinterest board after board, wondering how those brides obtained such perfect hair on their wedding day. No, she probably wasn’t born with it – it’s hair extensions. Experienced pros take a combination of extensions with curling irons and hairspray, along with their fine-tuned talents, and turn it into perfectly arranged hair of legend. Contrary to popular belief, these well-kept secrets are easily obtainable by any bride.

Most Common Hair Extension Options

Whether you are looking for semi-permanent or temporary extensions, there is no shortage of options. With an abundance of choices in both categories, there may be a more specific extension choice, based on your exact hair type – be sure to choose the best product!

Anyone looking for a temporary solution may be interested in an application of glue-in extensions. The process takes a few hours to complete, comprising of small swatches of hair to be glued near the scalp, to the root area. Glue-ins may be expected to last two weeks.

Sew-in extensions are bundles of extensions applied to braids of your natural hair. This technique requires several hours of service, sometimes up to four, and provides semi-permanent extensions that last anywhere from two weeks to two months (depending on natural texture).

Another semi-permanent solution to hair extensions is tape-in extensions. This technique features extensions in small swatches on pre-glued tabs. This product requires up to two hours for application, by pressing the tabs together near the scalp. This look can be maintained for up to two months when maintained properly.

Caucasian hair works well with fusion, or pre-bonded extensions, a technique that lasts on hair with little to no texture. Pre-laced beads are attached at the root, with small bits of hair, to create a natural look. While this technique takes upwards of four hours to put into place, the results last over two months with good care and provide a seamless appearance.

If a bride is planning to wear extensions solely on her wedding day, something temporary such as clip-in extensions would be advisable. Small clips attached to little bundles of hair, can be worn near the scalp temporarily. This provides a flawless hairdo that will last throughout your special day, without the long term commitment of semi-permanent to permanent extensions.

Another aspect to take into consideration, suggested by top stylists, is to make sure extensions are dyed to match your current hair color. Products may appear differently online, depending on monitor settings or blue light filter settings on cell phones, etc. While you may do your best to pick the correct color, some coloring may be required to prevent a slight shade difference that will show up on your special day. Ask your stylist to match extensions to the color at the end of your hair – not the roots. This is the portion that shows in the majority of your hairdo, which may cost more, but provides more natural blending. Otherwise, another option would be to invest in extensions of several shades for an overall multidimensional color.

Should Brides Invest in Hair Extensions?

Not everyone has the time to be engaged long enough to grow their hair out for one single day. Truth is, most of the full, fancy and long updos you swoon over on Pinterest are filled in with extensions. Clip-in extensions are commitment-free, offering length and volume where teasing only enhances a look so much. Once you are finished enhancing your hair with extensions, you can take the clips out after your event is over.

Textured hair may be a game-changer, but extensions are still there to save the day. Extensions offer faster and easier styling on your wedding day, allowing manes of all textures to look their best. Beautiful hair boosts the confidence of every woman, especially as she’s walking down the aisle, and enjoying extensions for a day allows them to look and feel their best.

What Type of Wedding Hair Extensions to Shop for

Remy extensions are a great option for extensions and worth the investment, regardless of the extension type. Always seek out the opinion and guidance of a trusted stylist, before purchasing any hair extensions, to ensure you achieve the desired result as far as length, style, and color. When you plan to apply heat in order to style your hair, always opt for human hair in order to prevent melting and kinks. Synthetic hair extensions will become damaged when styled with a straightener or curling iron, leading to irreversible melting.

Would Wedding Day Extensions Affect Your Styling Options?

The location of your wedding can have a big effect on your chosen hairstyle, especially if it is rather dry, or more humid. While some hairstyles aren’t always dependent upon length and volume, it never hurts to increase the amount of hair. Semi-permanent and permanent extensions alike can mean the difference between a hairdo that lasts, and one that loses hold – extensions hold curls well. You should also make sure to notify your stylist if you have chosen to include extensions in your hairstyle. Wedding day extensions narrow your choice on professional since they’re not all comfortable working with them. Pick a professional who understands how extension placement will complete your wedding day style.

Do You Make a Good Hair Extension Candidate?

Anyone can make use of extensions, thanks to the variety of types available for use. Regardless of the condition of your hair, texture or length, wedding day extensions can be worn by anyone with a minimum of three inches or more of hair. This provides brides with the ability to add length or fullness to their style, with very little effort. Maybe you suffer with fragile or thin hair, or made a last minute decision to chop off your locks – extensions may just save the day. Talk with your stylist to find the best choice for your hair type, and whether you may benefit from clip-ins or sew-in extensions. A pro stylist will know how to guide you toward the best product.

Wedding Day Prep

However you prep your hair the morning of your wedding day, remember to wash your extensions in the same way. Consider a deep conditioning treatment in order to lengthen the wear of your hairdo, as well as to ensure the best finish for your overall style. Take your time in combing out any tangles before washing or styling. And, depending on the type of hair used to create your extensions, you can style with a curling iron to add blending ability for a more seamless look.

Semi-permanent extensions have different care requirements than clip-ins do. Extra steps should be taken to complete daily care to ensure the best appearance on your big day, such as satin or silk pillowcases, sleeping caps, etc. Most manufacturers provide cleaning and maintenance details to follow, regardless of the extension style you own.

What Does This Investment Cost?

Higher priced remy hair provides a quality unmatched by cheap, synthetic extensions. While they may be tempting at a low price point, they simply can’t hold up to heat styling. You can expect to shell out up to $350 for real hair extensions, depending on length and quality, amount of tracks, whether you want intact cuticles or even virgin hair extensions. Highly skilled professionals ensure your natural hair won’t be damaged or compromised along the way, but also that you’re having the best hair extension experience. Remember, when it comes to investing in your wedding day hair extensions, high-quality product, and top-notch services are worth the money.

For synthetic hair extensions, there are products like leave-in conditioners. They keep the synthetic hair extensions safe. Moreover, always tie the wefts at the end of hair to keep them in good condition.

Once you have ensured taking all the right measures to store hair extensions, next step is to choose the right location. Find a place that remains dry, maintains normal room temperature and is out of the reach of direct sunlight to store your hair extensions.
