YOU no longer have to spend years growing your hair to get Rapunzel-worthy locks - as the market is full of all types of hair extensions.

They are a popular option used by celebrities and beauty addicts alike, so here's everything you need to know.

These extensions are applied using snap-on clips; you don't need professional help to stick them in.

With this option, you can pick and choose when to wear them.

Depending on your mood, you can also decide how thick you want to make your barnet.

This is also a durable option, as you can keep hold of the tresses as long as you look after them.


Special hair tape is used for extensions bonded to the hair for up to ten weeks.

After they have been applied, it's important not to wash your mop for three days to prevent the adhesive from losing its tackiness.

Although you don't have to go through the lengthy process of clipping these strands every day, you cannot remove them for two weeks if you decide you don't like them.

Some hair experts are also concerned that the taping process can cause damage to your hair.


This method, also known as hair integration, can add length and fullness.

It can be completed using bonding, fusion, or micro rings.

For bonded extensions, the strands are sewn under a layer of hair.

The fused technique glues the individual locks in, which is why the entire process can take more than three hours.

Micro rings are sometimes used to attach the tresses, which involves fixing small sections of hair using metal beads or hoops.

Are hair extensions made from human hair?

Customers can choose synthetic or natural hair.

Human locks are generally considered the more luxury option, and you could expect to splash out around £100 for a full head.

Using false strands is cheaper, but there are some drawbacks.

Many believe that fake hair is more likely to tangle and break during heat styling.

How often do you need to change your hair extensions?

How long you can keep extensions depends on how you care for them.

Clip-ins last as long as you keep them in tip-top condition.

Just like natural hair, always wash it gently, and do not be too hard when brushing out.

Holding the strands at the root while detangling can prevent breakage.

While it might be tempting to use hair oils on dry sections of your hair, avoid the bond or tape to prevent extensions from slipping out.

Signs that it's time to get a new set include frizzing, breakage, and coarseness.

When using the taped method, it's advisable to get them changed every six to ten weeks.

Weave can last for around three months, with some methods claiming to stay fresh for a year.

Do hair extensions cause damage to your hair?

Just like with any hair styling process, you run the risk of damaging your natural mop by getting any form of extensions.

The weight of the added locks can put stress on your roots.

In extreme cases, this can lead to your hair being pulled out.

To avoid this, always ensure that the extensions are placed on the most vital part of the strands on your head.

Placing clip-ons or tape at the hairline or nape of your neck is a no-no.

From her portraits of the New York art scene of the 1970s to her conceptual photographs, Marcia Resnick is an experimental photographer whose work reflects a mix of social and political commentary and style.

On view at Mia Aug. 13 through Dec. 11 (free). More information here.
