Thanks to the world's obsession with celebrity culture, hair extensions are getting (largely) great publicity. Almost every event in which celebrities are present, there are bound to be photographers and reporters looking for the latest gossip and to discover fashion and hairstyle secrets that will be broadcast and distributed and dissected by an eager world public within hours of the event taking place!
It's probably easier to work out which celebs haven't used hair extensions of some kind, rather than trying to highlight all those that have, but the fact that they are so popular, really proves what a versatile fashion and hair accessory they have become.
These extensions can help alter a "look" dramatically and with more and more clip in extensions being used, a girl can change her look almost as often as she desires.
Is there a big movie premiere one week and a glamorous party a week later? A celeb may want to look completely different for both events and of course this can be achieved in several ways. Different dresses and outfits will certainly go some way to looking different, but nothing can be quite as dramatic as a complete change of hair style. Unless you already have masses of your own hair, then your options without hair extensions are somewhat limited.
However, once you have brought hair accessories into the equation, then really, your imagination (or the imagination of your stylist) is the only limit!
Once you delve into the world of extensions, you will find that there is so much variety and so much choice, but at the most basic level, there are effectively two main categories. In the past, artificially made or synthetic hair was the most popular, but with advances in technology, many of the current extension sets are made from real human hair, providing a much more natural look than some of the synthetic variations!
As with any fashion accessory though, it is important to seek advice from the professionals. Hair extensions can be mismanaged and go wrong and you are likely to have seen many examples of this on the internet and in women's magazines.
Seek out a reputable company with good reviews and don't be afraid to ask for their advice and help and always follow their instructions carefully. Good salons, stylists and distributors will have the customers' interests as their number 1 priority.
So, it's time to enjoy the endless possibilities that good hair extensions can provide. Be bold and dare to be glamorous!
