Using Hair Extensions - Personal Hair Advisor - iVillage Beauty Hair & Nail Salon

Personal Hair Advisor: If you want a longer look, but your hair isn't growing fast enough to suit you, you can fake it with hair extensions. These clever swatches of hair were once the secret of the rich and famous, but salons across the country are now making them available to everyone.

The best extensions, made from human hair, can run you close to $1,000, but there are cheaper options. The swatch of hair is either stitched onto or woven into your own hair and can last for months with regular adjustments. As a more temporary and affordable alternative, some companies offer a do-it-yourself version that attaches with clips.
