Hair Extensions Are Hot With Celebrities

Besides being most searched celebrity names, what do Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton & Nicole Ritchie have in common? Hair Extensions!
“Hair Extensions Latest Celebrity Hair Trends”

Only the most talked about hair in the industry. Hair extensions are hot, hot, hot. Didn’t I just see Jessica Simpson in the cutest bob hairstyle a few months back? Then the release of the movie, The Dukes . . . and she’s got that beautiful head of long hair every woman wishes she could have at least once in her lifetime, you guessed it hair extensions. Then suddenly, I’ve seen Paris Hilton & Nicole Ritchie sporting the same hairstyle. How do they go from a short hair bob to long hair seemingly overnight? Hair Extensions.

Hair extensions have come a looooong way in the past number of years. You probably already know things are being added in all the fluffing and buffing going on with the celebrities with hair extensions. But what about us common folk?

It may not be that you want to be Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton or Nicole Ritchie or that you want to add 10 to 12″ of hair to your hairstyle. Maybe you would just like to add a little lift at the crown, or a touch more to that thinning area at the top of your head. Well, there is enough variation of hair extensions out there to suit all of your needs.

Clip-on hair extensions, easy to use, easy on your hair and easy on your budget. You can put them in and take them out yourself. Don’t forget extensions can be trimmed to whatever length you want! You can spend from $8.95 up to $200.00 or more for hair extensions. Hair extension can be clipped, woven, melted, or layered into your hair. The effects you can achieve are added length, more volume, added height and color variation.

Human hair extensions vs. synthetic hair extensions?

  • Human hair extensions:
    • Pros: can be colored, can use heat as in a curling
      iron, can wash with regular shampoo
    • Cons: high priced.
  • Synthetic hair extensions:
    • Pros: Better priced
    • Cons: Cannot use heat to style, cannot color
    Hair extensions are a quick way to change up your hairstyle and be in with the latest in celebrity looks.

  1. People can get them if they want. I used to have really long hair (almost at my butt) But then I had it cut really short and I miss my long hair so I got clip-in hair extensions :)

  2. I got the weave done recently and this isn’t my first time getting hair extensions, i don’t like the fact that you can’t get your hair wet or wash it often. Mine itched like crazy. When i wash my hair i have to take a long time and make sure and try to get the braids dry. Plus you have to take them out and put them back in 6 to 8 weeks. I think when my time is up i’ll glue them in so i can get them wet and hopefully no itching.

  8. I’m afraid there are quite a few celebrities who almost all fake. If we all had to lable everything that was fake, Goldy Hawn would be one big label.

  9. There are people out there who CANT grow thier hair long and wnat to try something different. surely people who have long hair all thier lives can try a drastic change by cutting it short so can people who have only had short hair can try it long. i think if hair is fake you should not be labelled fake. and when you think about it hasnt everyone had fake nails once or so often? its going to become just as common.

  10. why not just grow your own long hair ..mine is down to my butt & took 5 yrs to grow’t that long ..but well worth the time & patience ..& its not FAKE its all mine & the REAL thing !

  11. Umm i think that hair exstensions is okay for someone who needs to go from short to long overnight but just to do it becasue you want long hair thats crazy not to mention a waste of money
