Long or short?
Hair styling is a massive business today, and actually we can not only choose the colour of our hair, but also the length. If we wanted long flowing locks in the past, we would either have to grow our own, which would take forever or settle for a wig.
Wigs and hairpieces
Wigs and hairpieces in the past were mostly made from synthetic hair, and were sometimes really hot and uncomfortable to wear. People who had lost their hair due to sickness or alopecia had little choice if they wanted to replace it. Nowadays, however spoilt for their choice, most wigs and hairpieces are made from human hair.
Even the less expensive variety, although made from synthetic hair have improved immensely. Wigs and hair extensions are fashion
must-haves, with most women owning at least one.
If your natural hair is thin, it's possible to have extensions put in to add volume.
These can either be glued in to your own hair, which has to be done by a qualified hairdresser, or you can choose to use the clip in a type that you can insert yourself. Whichever you choose, the results can be equally amazing.
The best buys
Headkandy.com are a really good online store to purchase your extensions from.
They offer a 10-day money back guarantee and their extensions are 100% human hair. They can be treated exactly like your own hair, and can be straightened,curled and waved. They have an average life of around six to twelve months, and it's advisable not to sleep with them to prolong their life.
Another really good website is Shophairextentions.co.uk. These offer a wonderful selection of colours to choose from, and are very reasonably priced. You will also find step-by-step instructions on how to fit them. Have fun!!
