Hair extensions have been around since the 1950s in the form of the weave. But it started to gain mass popularity in the 1990s due to new and inexpensive techniques and styles. Although they are a great solution to thinning hair, there are numerous other reasons that hair extensions can be used these days.
To add volume to your hair
It is one of the most prominent reasons hair extensions are used today, to add the much-needed volume to the thin hair. In the present times, stress and an unhealthy lifestyle of millennials take a toll on their health as well as the health of their hair. As a result, many people experience thinning of hair. Many health conditions also propagate hair thinning or loss of hair. Hair extensions are a great solution to counteract the problem and add volume to the existing mane on the head.
To have thicker and longer braids
Braids are a go-to hairstyle for many, and a good reason. They look great with any attire whether casual or formal. Different styles of braids give sophistication of casualness to the look depending on the wearer. And the thicker and longer they are, the better they are. And this can very well be achieved using a variety of hair extensions.
To use the hair accessories
As is evident, the longer the hair, easily different hairstyles can be styled. Whether you want to use a scarf to tie your hair for that oh so casual look or you want to style your hair into a makeshift bang or if you want to use different beads, hair bands, clips, tiaras, or even pins, hair extensions can successfully help you achieve different looks without actually having to grow your hair. All the above-mentioned accessories can come to be used to achieve the so in vogue looks that are to be achieved.
To add length to shorter hair
If you have short hair and that is stopping you from achieving the hairstyle you want and in turn the look you want, hair extensions are a great addition to your kit for this reason. Rather than waiting for your hair to grow out to have a longer mane, extensions can be a quick fix for handy hairstyle styling.
To have a fuller ponytail
Ponytail is considered the easiest of the hairstyles involving the minimum effort and minimum possible maintenance, but there is an unsaid rule regarding this hairstyle, which is for it to be full rather than limp and wispy. This is an achievable goal using hair extensions. The fuller and perkier the ponytails are the better they are. And this applies to all the ponytail types whether they are braided, or high or low, or even mohawk, or twisted one.
To experiment with hair color and highlights
If you are willing to experiment with your hair color or the highlights, the hair extensions are a great way to experiment with your looks with minimum possible damage to your hair owing to different chemical treatments that are required to achieve that goal. You can opt for subtle or prominent highlights in the required hues for your hair extensions. Or you can opt for wigs in the color of your choice.
Human hair extensions can aid for the above-mentioned reasons and many others. These modern extensions are easily attachable as well as detachable and hassle-free while being used. And the best reason remains the possibility of achieving the required looks with minimum possible effort.
