5 Ways to Cut Down the Cost of Hair Extensions

It's confession time, ladies. Admit it: at least once in your life, you've pored over pages and pages of fashion and beauty magazines, studying the pictures of the celebs and their flawless hairstyles. At least once in your life, you've attempted to recreate a famous coif, whether it was Jennifer Aniston's famous "Rachel," Farrah Fawcett's feathered 'do, or Rihanna's new, fire-red lengths. And who hasn't? Almost every woman wants to look red-carpet stunning at least once in her life. But for most of us who don't have the funds for celebrity styling, that "red-carpet stunning" look must be achieved on a budget.

This is especially true when it comes to rocking hair extensions that look natural, healthy, and stylish. While many women love the look and feel of long, luscious locks, they also bemoan the high cost of quality hair extensions. Well, no more! Your hair extensions can still look great without breaking the bank. Here's how:

Stay beautifully human. Buy human hair, preferably virgin Indian human hair. It does cost more than the synthetic hair extensions available at your local beauty supply store, but this is because it lasts longer, looks better, and is easier to reuse. So why go cheap several times a month when you could invest in high-quality human hair extensions just once? Check out Remy Indian hair extensions, as this hair has a smooth, flat cuticle that guarantees silky, tangle-free tresses.

Think Big Units. If a full-head weave is what you want, try installation methods that offer easy reuse. Full-lace wigs require little prep and can be worn time and again without costly, time-consuming installs. Net weaves are also a great way to get the look of a full-head install and the convenience of a customized wig. The process takes about as long as a sew-in weave, and reusing the hair later actually takes even less time!

Save

Conserve the stylist's clock. Here's a little-known secret: stylists' fees are largely based on how long you sit in their chairs. The more hours they put into detailing your mane, the more money you pay. So try to keep your visit as short and simple as possible by arriving on time with as much of the prep work already done as you can. Show up with your natural hair clean, dry, and untangled, and bring your own human hair extensions, already in the color you want (no need to pay to get the hair dyed). Visit a beautician or stylist who specializes in weaves or hair extensions and skip the in-shop wash and condition. For sew-in installs, you can also get a trusted friend or relative to braid your hair away before you arrive at the stylist, since this step is often the one that takes the most time to complete.

Choose styles wisely. As stated above, the easier and quicker your human hair extensions can be installed, the less it will cost you. So for everyday wear opt for a sew-in installation of virgin Indian hair, and save the strand-by-strand fusion application for a super-special occasion. Or, on the other hand, opt for micro, tree, or individual braids. These styles should last for several months and make the upfront cost worthwhile.

DIY. Of course, the easiest way to save on hair extensions is to do it all yourself. Clip-on hair extensions are super hot right now, and a quick, easy way to add length and volume to your mane, to boot. So why not take a bit of extra time one weekends to pamper yourself by doing your own hair? And - if you want to make sure you do an expert job - taking a few braiding, styling, or cosmetology classes can only enrich your life...and possibly your pocketbook!

Take care of yourselves,
