Keep in mind your facial features, the color and the texture of your hair and select something that complements them the end result should accentuate your physical features and if you have doubts you can consult your stylist. Make sure you purchase your hair extensions from a reputed dealer who stocks on good stuff.

Tips on how to prepare your hair before you schedule a visit to the salon for hair extensions The first thing to do is color your hair to match the hair extensions that you have selected and this should be done a day before the appointment. The next thing to do is to get yourself a good clarifying shampoo and clean your hair thoroughly on the day of the appointment with the stylist. After shampooing and rinsing repeat the process. Remember not to add conditioner to the hair. Dry your hair with a towel and brush it with a comb. No need to style your hair with any of the styling products. And one more thing to do is to remove all knots before shampooing if you have hair that tangles easily. Presence of knots makes hair extension process a bit more cumbersome.

Short, medium or long hair can be worn by any one but it is the way the hair is styled that matters. Finally a word of advice, be cautious about the number of times you have hair extensions done, try to keep it to a minimum.
