I want to add some thickness into my hair for my wedding

Hi there, my hair is quite thin and I want to give it some oomph for my wedding. What are some options? I've heard about clip-in extensions. (Bit worried about colour matching?) Any ideas? Thank you.

Clip ins are great for most styling options. Hair halos are great for down stylings are they are easily matched. If you can consult a hairdresser who sells extensions would be your best option as they can colour match in person or help with colouring them to match 100%. It's surprising sometimes hair extensions match a lot easier when hair is curled as long as they are in the same tone of hair colour.

i recommend clip ins as it doesnt ruin your natural hair , your hair dresser can colour and cut them to match .

Extension are a great way to add length and thickness. But depending on your chosen style you may not need them. I would suggest talking to your chosen stylist and they can advise the best options. It might even be as simple as a hair donut.

Clip in extensions are a great way for just your wedding. If you want something longer lasting then the beaded wefts are great.

Head to my pinterst page for the before and after section! You'll see many brides that have used clip in extensions. :) 

Colour matching- talk to your hairdresser and perhaps look up a company like Zala hair extensions wiht them and choose togther as your extensions may need colouring or toning.

Dear Bride, 

Clip in extensions are the perfect addition to add length. They are easy to apply and remove. I would recommend 100% human hair and have found Zala extensions and sitting pretty to be good quality. In fact, I recently sourced a second-hand set of Zala extensions for a bride and saved her $200, they were a little lighter than her hair so gave the block colour more dimension.  They also help extend the life of the curls or waves as they hold better than natural hair. 

Just make sure you find a salon that has a lot of extension experience to cut and colour match them. 

I hope this helps!

Are you dreaming of a long and flowing bridal hair? or a seriously stylish up-do that requires lots of volume? Then you might have considered having hair extensions for your wedding. If you have fine, thin hair and struggling to grow your hair fast enough for your big day or you simply want to make sure you can create the hairstyle you want we highly suggest having hair extensions.

I have had about 20% off my brides add hair extentions only thing is make sure they are real extentions and wont burn with stylers or straightners.

I have had one bride by cheap and it melted on to my equipement now I tell them make sure heat proof.

Great for hair ups to add texture and design but also make sure they are a matching colour if they are slightly off you will see different tones as Photography shows every thing
