Hair Extensions for your Wedding Day

Are you struggling with the question: "To have hair extensions or not for your wedding day?"

Here is my advice for hair extensions for your big day.

I am finding that this wedding season, more brides are looking are deciding to wear their hair up.  The issue with this, is no matter how long your hair is, more often than not, their hair isn't enough to create the look they are after.

So you have two options:

Permanent attached hair extensions.  

Apart from them being insanely expensive to have put in (I had mine done a few years back and it cost me $1400) they also take about 6-8 hours to put in.  Not ideal when you are time poor.  Often, you can also see the attachments when your hair is pulled off your face, this can make tightly pulled back hair styles hard to get perfect.  Once the wedding is finished, then you are left with them in, great if you are wanting long hair for your honeymoon.  You would have to get them professionally removed as well.

Clip in hair extensions.

This is the option I highly suggest.  You can purchase human hair, which feels like your own hair, and you can colour these to match, if you have a hair colour slightly outside the normal.  I find with clip in Hair, I can put these in certain areas (ie if you are having a messy low bun, I will put the extenstions in the area where the bun is going), you can remove these and use them over and over again ( you will just need to learn how to put these in, which you can find on Youtube easily enough), they won't damage your hair and I find that they are a lot cheaper (I think they can be between 150-200 for a set).

If you are lacking volume or want that beautifully big low messy bun for your wedding day, then I would highly recommend getting some hair extenstions.  Talk with your Hair and Makeup Artist and they would point you in the right direction.
