WHERE TO BUY HAIR EXTENSIONS IN LONDON

While there is a huge range of hair extensions offering online, sometimes the next day service is just not quick enough.  When you need hair extensions yesterday, you need to a spot to pick up your new hair in a quickly.

Firstly, know what type of hair extension you are buying (human or synthetic).  You need to know what length of hair you need (you can use a measuring tape to check).  Remember, the length of hair you buy affects the number of bundles you need so do not choose a longer length than you need.  When choosing your extension hair, consider the application method you intend to use.  If you are taking your extensions to have them professionally fitted, you can talk to your extension stylist about the best method for your hair.

If you are planning to fit the hair extensions yourself, you can choose clip-in hair extensions or hair extensions fitted on an invisible wire.  Most hair extension shops carry several colour options, and some may even have different textures available.  There are hair extension shops peppered all around the city of London, we recommended PAKS for a low budget, retail supplier that sells directly to the public and offer a good range of hair extension products.

THE FINAL WORD

If your hair is a little bit finer or weaker than it used to be, it is advisable to avoid methods that can weaken the fibres of the hair shaft. Brazilian knot hair extensions, micro ring hair extensions or hair weaves are a fantastic way to add thickness to fine hair.  If you are unsure what type of hair extensions to buy, see a professional for a hair extension consultation.  Your extension stylist can give you precise details regarding the extension hair suitable for you and can often supply you with higher quality hair from suppliers that sell directly to professionals.
