What Are Hair Extensions?
Do you know what celebs like J. Lo, Kim Kardashian, and Chrissy Teigan all have in common? Besides sharing a killer fashion sense, these ladies are owning another Hollywood secret that lets them constantly take their looks to the whole new level - hair extensions.
But if you haven’t ever thought about “hair extensions”, they are a kind of item/hair that adds length and/or fullness to the human hair with some other names as artificial hair integrations or hair weaves. Bring us length, add extra volume, or even trendy bangs, hair extensions are a great way to rock different styles, without having to commit to a certain look for too long.
Human Hair Extensions and Synthetic Hair Extensions
The very first element you need to know about hair extensions is that they have 2 main origins: real human hair extensions and synthetic hair extensions. So, before discovering the different types of hair extension application methods, take a short look to know the difference between them.
Human hair extensions are exactly the same as what they sound like. This type of extensions is made out of real, human hair from top to bottom, collected from a donor. They not only have a natural look and feel but also bring a certain shine and movement that's rather difficult to recreate in synthetic hair. Plus, because they are real hair, human hair extensions are easy to cut, style and blend with your own current hairstyle. Their biggest downside is that they are quite expensive and not everyone can afford to buy.
On the other hand, Synthetic hair extensions can be a more affordable option that almost has a cheaper price. With advances in technology, synthetic hair has become more popular in recent years, with newer options made with fibers that make us feel more like real hair. One great thing about synthetic extensions is that most can be worn out of the box. In addition, they can hold up in bad weather because they don't frizz like natural hair does. However, because synthetic extensions have strong fibers, they are less versatile than human hair, need to take more effort to change curl patterns and also cannot last as long as human hair extensions.

Not only can this hairstyle flattering on all shapes of faces but it also gives off a youthful and energetic vibe.

Semi-Permanent (worn for 6-8 weeks)
Semi-permanent hair extensions methods include tape-in pieces that last around 6-8 weeks. These are smaller sections than clip-ins and some new Tape extensions techniques are almost completely undetectable when hair is down or worn up.
Permanent (are worn continuously, for many months)
