Hair extensions add a touch of glamour to your appearance. More and more women in Australia are opting to go for hair extensions. But, are hair extensions expensive?

Are Hair Extensions Expensive? – High quality vs Cheap

In Australia, it’s possible to get hair extensions at as low as $20. But, high quality hair extensions cost over $500. While high quality extensions are not cheap, they’re more durable, soft in texture and appear more realistic. Styling high quality hair is easier and more straightforward. High quality hair is made from real human hair, and is labeled remy human hair. If you’re new to hair extensions, your best option for choosing the right type of hair extension, curl pattern and colour is to consult a hair extension technician.

What are the types of hair extensions? – Clip-in

Clip-in extensions are ideal for those who simply wish to look glamorous for a special occasion like a wedding. Clip-ins are wefts of hair sewn or glued onto barrettes. All you have to do is secure the barrettes onto your roots under your natural hair. And, viola, you have voluminous locks to rock. Clip-in extensions are relatively inexpensive and you don’t have to worry about maintenance. Clip-in extensions can cost from $200 up to $350 or slightly more. Clip-in extensions last up to 6 to 10 months.

What are the types of hair extensions? – Tape-in

Tape-in extensions are semi-permanent, and you need to visit a hair extension salon to install these. This method involves around 1 inch wefts of hair being taped into your natural hair using a ‘sandwiching’ method. The tape is thin and flat, making it easy to conceal the extensions amongst your natural hair. You can even pull these up to a ponytail as long as they are not applied too close to the hair line. The average cost of tape-in hair extension installation is about $300 while the hair itself costs about $200. You should also plan on spending about $120 every six to 8 weeks for maintenance.

What are the types of hair extensions? – microbead

Microbead or microlink hair extensions are applied using beads to attach wefts (small) hair to your natural locks. Your hair extension technician will clamp down the beads without using glue or heat. Microlinks look natural and can be easily concealed. There is no heat damage as the method does not require heat. However, microlink hair extensions are on the expensive side with installation cost at $400 and the extensions costing $200. You will also need to spend about $150 per session on a bi-monthly basis.

Do hair extensions damage natural hair?

Hair extensions are safe as long as you choose a professional hair extensions technician and high quality extensions. You also would need to visit the salon every 8 weeks for maintenance. And, always follow your technician’s guidelines on hair care.
