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.



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.
