The fall is quickly approaching and while summer's pixie 'dos kept us cool, we're all of a sudden missing the hair that fell down our backs. If growing your hair is a glacial process or your genes never gave you Blake Lively tendrils, don't fret. You can still achieve Beyonce length thanks to hair extensions.

Duh, extensions are no new trend. Girls have been glueing, clipping and sewing faux hair to their hair for years now. The girls who really get it can turn a short bob into a flowing masterpiece flawlessly. You wouldn't even know that they're wearing extensions. How do they make it look so natural and real? For starters, they probably had to answer these key questions first?

What Do I Want?

Hair ExtensionsThis is a major question you have to ask yourself. Do you want extensions you can take out whenever you want? Are you looking for something more permanent? There are several ways you can install hair extensions... clip-ins, fusion, sewing. It's important to research the various methods to determine which is best for you.

Why Do I Want Extensions?

Hair ExtensionsIt's also important to note why you want extra hair in your head. Is it for length, thickness or color? Knowing the answer to this question will help you in selecting how much hair you should purchase and what kind of hair you should get. If you plan on curling and styling the hair a lot you will want human hair extensions. If you just want to wear it once for the prom, you can buy an inexpensive synthetic or mixed blend hair.

How Much Do I Want To Spend?

Hair ExtensionsHair extensions truly range in price. Some girls spend upwards of $500 on the hair alone. That's a whole lot of cash. If you want Kim Kardashian extensions, expect to spend top dollar on grade A hair that will most likely break the bank. Don't fret, there are plenty of companies that sell inexpensive pieces you can experiment with. Thanks, Sally Beauty!
