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.
