Would You Wear Hair Extensions?

Quite a few years ago, when I was single, I was out with some girl friends dancing in this little club and some guy started dancing with us. I don't like dancing with strangers. I was nice though and when the song finished I smiled and left the dancefloor. He followed, chatted me up a bit about I don't remember what, but then asked me if I was wearing hair extensions. Cue the record skip!

I wasn't, but for some reason it made me offended. Besides, who asks that? Here's the best part...when I told him no he didn't believe me and pulled on my hair. Crazy, right? 

Cut to some years later, I was working for a beauty website, and what arrives in the mail? Jessica Simpson's HairDo clip-in hair extensions. They were long, wavy, and blondish brown. Since I have dark hair, my co-worker Brianne, who had light brown short hair, tried them on. The extensions looked adorable and were so easy to clip in.

Must. Have. Now. So I went to Ricky's NYC and bought some that matched my hair. My locks were already long, but what I loved about these is that it made my hair fuller. I wore the extensions to a wedding and it helped me create a cool half-up/half-down hair do. For me, it's not for the everyday -- this clip-in is all one piece and can be heavy or too much on those with thick hair. Then I discovered POP: Put On Pieces that come in strands, so you can clip in where you need or want a little extra volume. I love these and wear them for once in a while for a little extra something!

Some CafeMoms in the All About Hair And Makeup Group think that clip-in extensions are better for your hair (and your wallet). tpflint419 said she found clip-ins for as low as $1.99 for a pack of three at her local beauty supply store.

Have you ever tried hair extensions? Do you prefer the clip-in kind?

I have short hair but uninvited hair-miners could earn a slap for touching without permission! Strange men should never touch a lady without asking! I'm more appalled at that more than I care about the extensions..LOL I might try a little color one day..that would be cute in my short hair :)

I wouldn't because I have really thick hair and I always have it long.

I don't need them people are always asking me if my hair is real and don't believe me when I say yes. Then the touch my hair as if I don't know they're feeling for tracks. But I don't care way people think I've worn extensions to add a little color. my hair is dark and doesn't color well. So I use extensions for hi lites.love you sign

I just took my glue ins out last week.  I don't mind clip ins but my natural hair is so short that the only look I can get with them is a wicked mullet!

My stepdaughter wore hair extensions for her wedding, they looked beautiful, you couldn't even tell it wasn't her hair.  If  I could get the exact color match, I would wear some if I was going out for the evening or something.

I'd love to try them and I think the clip in kind are great because you can change it up whenever you want.
