How to Choose the Right Human Hair Extensions

Choosing the Right Hair Extensions

Hairaisers Hair Extensions
How do you choose the right hair extensions for you? Many people ask for the most cost effective hair extensions, but usually the cheaper market of hair extensions do not lasts making them more expensive long term.

Why don’t cheaper hair extensions last?

Cheap hair extensions are typically made from 100% processed human hair, “processed” human hair extensions are basically human hair that has been stripped of its natural cuticle layer and covered in a silicone to prevent the damaged cuticle interlocking with each other causing the hair to matt. Over time, this silicone washes off and the hair will inevitably matt.

What are the cheapest higher quality hair extensions?

To keep costs down, large reputable companies blend genuine Remy hair with processed human to give the hair extensions a longer life. These companies will not usually advertise their hair as Remy as it does not contain 100% of remy hair. However there are many smaller companies out there that will falsely advertise the hair as 100% Remy human hair, this is a growing problem that many of the larger companies are angry at.

What are the best quality hair extensions?

The best type of hair extensions available on the market today are GENUINE virgin Remy hair extensions. This term has been abused by so many sellers. Virgin Remy hair extensions are generally unprocessed. The hair has been cleaned, then sewn to a weft. This hair comes at a price, a very high price. If someone is selling “Cheap 100% Virgin Remy” hair extensions, there’s no such thing.

The general tip is go for a well known and reputable brand, and don’t fall for the false advertising by smaller companies.

Celebrity Influence Behind Hair

Celebrities and Hair Extensions

Celebrity Influence Behind Hair

Celebrity Influence Behind Hair


Recently, rumours were all over the web about how Kate Middleton was allegedly wearing clip in hair extensions. The main thing I noticed from these Hair Extension rumours was how many people decided to have the urge to have hair extensions themselves because of this. It shows how powerful and influential celebrities can be in regards to all aspects about hair, from hair styles to the hair colour itself.

Cheryl Cole Hair

Recent years has seen a huge increase in sales of the hair colour 32, the same colour that Cheryl Cole has. Cheryl Cole would be the most obvious reason for the increase of that particular hair colour as she has amazing hair and has been in the lime light over recent years. Her celebrity status is mainly due to popular shows such as X Factor, who themselves used top stylists such as Adam Reed who uses only the best quality hair extensions, such as Hairaisers Hair.

Kim Kardashian Hair

The largest influencer of hair at the moment would be Kim Kardashian. If you pay any attention to large social media platforms at all, you will notice Kim Kardashians references are usually linked to her hair extensions or how good her hair looks. After a chat to a Tweep in regards to Kim Kardashians hair extensions, she said she was adamant about getting hair extensions even though she had never worn them before, nor even previously considering getting hair extensions.

Celebrity influence is very powerful, which is why hair companies are willing to pay quite a bit to get a famous celebrity with amazing hair to their name. Hair styles will always mostly be dictated by celebrities, acknowledging and following celebrity hair fashion will always be at the forefront of the hair industries priorities.
