Image resultFor hair extensions, all that you need are a few hours in the salon and you have long hair that looks like a dream. Professionally made hair extensions Australia can completely transform your appearance without affecting the health of your hair. However, you must choose your hair stylist carefully because if they are done wrongly extensions can seriously damage your hair. You should know what to expect before going to the salon.

It goes without saying that hair extensions that are done by a professional hair extension artist and made from high quality hair would cost you several hundred dollars. The price really depends on the quality of the hair used - Asian hair is cheaper, while European hair costs 2-3 times more. If you want good looking hair - especially blond hair - you will have to pay for European material.

You can also find hair extensions Australia starter kits being sold online and they come with complete instructions, which aren’t difficult to apply. So if you feel adventurous, you may want to buy a do-it-yourself kit and save significantly. If done correctly, this type of hair extension looks as good as any salon made one. If you decide to follow this route, though, make sure that you order high quality hair.

The two major types of hair extension are individual strands and wefts. Just as the name implies, individual wefts are attached one piece at a time to your own hair, usually using glue, or with waxes and polymers. The only downside here is that most of the attachment methods require coating your natural hair with rather unfriendly chemicals. Attaching these extensions isn’t a problem, but removing this type of hair extensions Australia can seriously damage your hair.

Wefts, on the other hand, are braided into your hair, so that no chemicals are needed. A weft looks like a curtain of hair held together at the top and hanging freely toward the bottom. It is braided into your hair around the midline of your head - about ear level. It is safer for your hair but, on the downside, as you own hair grows wefts have to be re-braided - about once every two months.

With regards to the materials that are used to make hair extensions Australia, they can be made of either synthetic or real human hair. Synthetic extensions are cheaper, of course, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for - they look like artificial strands attached to your hair. They’re not very pleasant to the touch, either. Human hair used for hair extensions Australia gives better results. Human hair extensions differ by origin; the most common are hair from Asian countries which can be great for Asian women.
