If you dream of having long, beautiful tresses on the day of your Quince, but your hair is short and grows back slowly, or it’s damaged, don’t worry and thank whoever invented hair extensions.

Nowadays, there are plenty of methods to give your hair more volume and length, and our favorite is hair extensions. They could be natural (100% human hair) or synthetic, and they come in a great variety of colors, lengths and textures, so you’ll probably find the right one for you!

Keratin Hair Extensions

Human hair extensions allow you to do anything that you regularly do to your own hair; you can straighten it, blow dry it, and even dye it. On the contrary, synthetic hair extensions will need special hair appliances with temperature regulators because locks can burn. The plus side, however, is that they’re less expensive than natural ones.
