HOUSE OF DAME BLOG » how to use hair extensions
Dames, many women ask me all the time about which hair extensions company is best to trust. My personal favorite is to get custom hair pieces from my local hair shop for custom or Extensions Plus. However, not may people have the budget, know how to pick their colors or have time, so here's the down low on my thoughts of the popular hair extension companies out there:
Cashmere Hair Extensions: 5 Star
Pros: Amazing quality, long lasting ( I've had mine for 4 years and they still look as good as day 1) wash well, lots of hair comes with your purchase.
Cons: Cost is on the higher end.
Lux Beauty Club: 5 Star
Pros: The magnet hair is next level easy. Innovative for ease in putting in and works! Great quality hair. Color matches great!
Cons: Can't think of one. Price is great!
Secret Extensions: 3 Star
Pros: The headband is easy to use, adds just the right amount of volume for same length style.
Cons: the fake hair is not great and band stretches out quickly. Not secure over time.
Glam Seemless (Tape): 3 Star
Pros: Lots of hair comes in the package, great color match, and the blondes are rooted in a match perfect way.
Cons: The blondes matte up after 3 weeks. Poor quality
Sally Beauty Hair extensions: 1 Star
Pros: Inexpensive, they have a seamless weft that is very thin , so you can't feel it. They have great colors and weft does not shed.
Cons: They only come in 18", so limited length options. It only has 100 grams of hair, so if you need alot you may want to buy 2 boxes.

Dames, the cat is out of the bag. We know, that you know, most celebs all wear hair extensions BUT some are so good you would have no idea its not all their real hair. Here are a few you may be surprised to hear us say -YES those are extensions! Question, have you ever wondered why they are using extra hair pieces? Wonder no more. Come along with us to find out the answers...
2. Erika Jayne- we all know she wears hair pieces but how is this look hair extensions? Do you see the volume on this bun? No one has a natural bun that size, that is all hair pieces baby.3. Jessica Alba- yep, even a mid length crop can use a little bit of extra hair help for thickness to make your wavy style not only pop but keep that wave hold.4. Reese Witherspoon- ok, you might think this is for length..but nope. Sometimes celebs want a blonder look but without more damage to your hair. Hair extensions are the solution. If you look close you can see the underneath hair is darker. Lighter pieces placed at top to mimic highlights.5. JLO- Ponytails are so in right now, and none of them look red carpet banging without a little hair extension help.Moral of the story Dames? Don't be afraid to use hair extensions to your advantage, and don't be afraid you will look too done up or over the top. These celebs above have shown us that hair extensions are just an accessory to make your hairstyle look better!P.S. You better believe that these women take really good care of their pieces, we know because we are friends with their stylists.

- Jennifer Lawrence is wearing hair extensions here!? Yes, girrrl! If you have fine hair and you want a short cut , hair extensions are everything to accent the style. They can really pull out the shape if its an A-line or fill in the sides for thickness in the front.
