Hair extensions are more than the latest and greatest hair care trend; they are here to stay due to the beauty product’s multi-functionality. However, with all of the brands and knock-offs available, choosing the right hair extension may seem to be a daunting task. Hopefully, the following hair care tips will set you on the right path in choosing the best hair extensions.
The visibility of hair extensions and the various types to choose from filled the main floor of the recent International Beauty Show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. Two booths appeared to have the most visits, Halo Couture and a generic brand that sold clip-in pieces by the pouch at a very inexpensive rate.
Let’s start with the generic brand. The hair was not of good quality, although the product claims it is. Just upon touch it feels artificial and unlike natural hair. The clip-in pack may be inexpensive, but each piece is a set measurement. Every individual head is a different size, which may not make for an ideal fitting. These temporary clip-in hair extensions may be beneficial for a few occasions, but are not an enduring product and in this professional’s opinion, not recommended for repeated use.
Halo Couture Hair Extensions are a unique product previously written about by this Long Island Hair Care Examiner. They are temporary hair extensions made of the finest quality human hair, available in a vast array of colors that secure to the head with an invisible wire. The hair extensions are not cheap, but neither is the product as the feel and look of the Halo Couture temporary extensions are infinitely different from its other temporary counterparts. A Halo Couture specialist fits the product to the head and as with all professional products that are purchased in salons, is guaranteed.
Imitation may be the greatest form of flattery, however, purchasing knock-offs that have been seen on eBay is not recommended as the color match will be different than the product’s swatches and a licensed professional will not size the piece to the head. Buyers beware: in instances where the price seems too good to be true, it usually is.
Deciding which hair extension is right for you depend on many factors such as needs, illness and even religion. The best hair extensions, whether temporary or permanent will never be found at a bargain basement discount and for optimal usage, should always be applied, purchased, sized and instructed by a licensed professional who will supply the client with only the finest hair care tips.
