How Do I Know Which Type Of Hair Extensions I Should Get?

Which Extension Type To Get

With so many different types of hair extensions in Las Vegas available it can be hard to know what to choose. The type you choose will largely depend on your lifestyle, hair texture and budget. There are really two main categories of hair extensions. The permanent type that require professional installation in a hair salon and the temporary type that you can do it yourself at home. We will talk about some of the pros and cons of each.

Permanent Type (Installed in a hair salon by a professional)

What are the pros?

  • By getting them installed at a hair salon near me, you can have them perfectly customized to your hair.
