Hair extensions have become de rigueur for those who want a more glam hair look. Celebrities especially are seen on the red carpet rocking bold extension looks during Fashion Week and Awards Season. However, extensions do require some careful maintenance. It is important that you understand just what hair extensions entail and that you go to a hair salon in Chicago that uses the most up to date hair extension methods. Hair extensions can help give you length, volume and sometimes, a little bit of color variance. However, you will want to make sure that your hair extensions are natural and if color is involved, showcase lived in color. But there are a few more tips and tricks to obtaining, and maintaining quality hair extension looks.

Probably the most important tip is to make sure you do your research before getting extensions. You will want to know the standard rules of hair extensions, as well as the different types of extensions available to you. There are a variety of types of hair extensions.
Tape-in hair extensions are pretty much exactly as they sound. They come pre-taped and then taped/glued onto the sides of your hair. However, the glue and heat that tape-in hair extensions entail often leave damage.

Weave Hair

Weave hair is another option for those looking for hair extensions. Weave hair is achieved by braiding natural hair into cornrows and attaching the extensions via needle and thread. This process is often used for those who have thicker hair because the extensions require hair to mask them. Sometimes, the tightness of the braids can cause strain.

Fusion Hair

Fusion hair extensions are also a type of hair extensions. They are bonded to natural hair using adhesive. However, the use of adhesive and heat can sometimes be damaging to one’s natural hair.

Micro Link Hair

Micro link hair extensions are another offering for hair extension hopefuls. These extensions are achieved by looping extensions through natural hair and clamping it down with heat and a metal ring. The metal used in this process, however, can sometimes damage the natural hair.

Clip-In Hair Extensions

You may also know about clip-in hair extensions, which are clips that are sewn into the hair and then the pieces are clipped into. This process doesn’t use heat which makes it less damaging for your natural hair.
