The Hottest Hair Extension Trends

Hair ExtensionMore than just a specific color, style or cut, hair extensions are the hottest beauty trend for women at the moment. Made popular by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox and Victoria Beckham, the wide range of hair extensions available on the market today allows women to experiment with different volumes, lengths and colors.

 

Many women get hair extensions simply because they desire the look of longer, healthier and thicker hair. They aren’t opting for a dramatic change, just the appearance that their natural hair is at its best. Accordingly, women who simply seek a fuller, more radiant version of their natural hair often choose semi-permanent extensions, that take longer to attach to their existing locks and stay in for an extended length of time.

 

Other women prefer more temporary extensions that let them change up their look for a holiday or even just one night. For women who prefer a shorter-term commitment for a fun change now and then, there are many hair extension options that can be removed and reapplied as the mood strikes.

 

Hair extensions provide significant versatility for women who may not feel comfortable with the dramatic and more permanent decision to cut or dye their hair. While color can be dyed over and cuts will grow back, there are so many different choices of hair extensions that don’t require such bold commitment. It is largely for this reason that hair extensions were some of the most buzz-worthy items at the recent International Beauty Show in New York City.

 

Temporary hair extension options include everything from clip-in strands of feathers and synthetic hair in bold, punky colors to pieces of real or natural looking synthetic hair. Products like Halo Couture and the Hair Dress add beautiful, natural-looking fullness and length to existing hair. They offer the fullness of a wig with the ease of temporary extensions, take only minutes to put on, and are held in position with a virtually invisible wire or strand. There are even gorgeous clip-in bangs on the market now, which are applied with a simple 3 snaps. Fun and simple to use, temporary hair extensions are that final touch to an outfit.

 

There is also a wide range of more permanent hair extensions on the market for women who want something natural and long lasting. While some are heat-resistant and styleable high-quality synthetic hair, most products are made of real human hair. Highly desirable “virgin” Indian or Malaysian hair tends to be among the most popular, as does Remy Hair. Remy Hair is that which retains its cuticle layer, the outermost part of the strand that keeps hair soft, smooth, shiny and free of tangles.

 

Women who desire semi-permanent extensions have many different choices for how to have them applied. There is no right or wrong way, either – it’s definitely a matter of personal preference. Some women prefer fusion methods that use a glue-like substance to discreetly hold the hair in place at the roots. Others like seamless tape, while many women swear by extensions that are woven in or secured using micro-links.

 

Whatever you prefer, it is evident that there are many on-trend choices for hair extensions in 2013, and just the extensions themselves are a fashionable choice.
