Hair Extensions – Savannah Hair Stylist

We frequently are asked our advice when it comes to hair extensions. Unfortunately, at this time, we do not provide or sell hair extensions. We do offer clip in hair extension placement and styling for your big day. If you think you might like them, I have a few recommendations before you shop.
We recommend clip-in extensions, as we can place them where needed for the exact style you’d like, and hide them well. Halo style extensions are not as secure, don’t blend with your natural hair as easily, and sometimes, depending on the hairstyle you choose, can be difficult to hide.
Please ensure that you purchase 100% human hair. We cannot use heat tools on synthetic hair. Even if the package says human hair, it may be a blend of only 10-30% human hair, and the rest, synthetic plastic fibers, which could melt when used with a curling iron. Look for packages that say can be used with heat tools.
Also be sure that they have not been chemically straightened. Sometimes even if it is 100% human hair, they are originally curly or kinky strands that they chemically straighten. These will not hold any curl.
Most packages of clip-in extensions will come with a variety of widths so that they can be placed accordingly. When determining the length to purchase, measure your longest hair strands from the base of your neck down to the ends of your hair. We recommend purchasing extensions no more than 5″ longer than your hair. Any longer than that will be difficult to blend.
Some hair extensions have a wax or other similar product coating on the hair to help it look shiny and new in the packaging. Be sure to wash your hair extensions to remove this coating prior to use. Washing them first will help the hair to look more natural, blend in with your hair more seamlessly and also help them to hold curl well. You can use your regular shampoo and conditioner to wash them. Then gently comb them with a wide toothed comb and lay flat on a towel to dry.
There isn’t a specific brand that we recommend. but as long as you make sure whichever ones you’re going to buy are 100% human hair and not chemically straightened you should be fine!
Happy hair shopping!
