Hair Extensions: 2021’s Hottest Hair Trend

September 1, 2021

Fall is on the way, which means that now is a great time to start changing up your look. One of the hottest trends for 2021 is hair extensions. If you cut your hair short for the summer, hair extensions can give you long, lush hair for the coming chilly weather. Read on to find out why extension-enhanced hairstyles could be your next winning look.

How do hair extensions work?

Hair extensions come in a variety of styles, types and ways to attach them. They can be made from real human hair or synthetic versions. The kind you choose will depend on the look and effects you want to achieve.

If you’re looking for long-lasting, high-quality extensions, you’ll want a sewn-in weave or bonded hair extensions. These are attached to your regular hair and can last for weeks, or even months. While you’ll need to take extra care with your hair, they’re a great way to get instantly long hair for an entire season.

There are also temporary hair extensions, which can be great for special occasions or to help you determine whether you really want to take the plunge with a new style. These can be clipped or taped in, which makes them easy to remove at the end of the night.

Types of hair extensions

Here’s a closer look at the variety of hair extension options you can choose from:

  • Clip-on bangs: Everyone knows that the risk of cutting bangs is regretting it immediately after the first snip. With clip-on bangs, you can try trendy new looks without the commitment (and the awkward growing-out period).
  • Braids: If you want to add long braids to your look, they can easily be achieved with clip-on, bonded or woven-in extensions. These come in both natural and synthetic styles, and will last for months, even as your hair grows.
  • Long locks: There’s something to be said for instantly long hair, especially if you’re regretting that summer cut. Long hair extensions are the most popular type, and are great for anything from weddings to taking the perfect selfie.
  • Faux buns: If your hair isn’t long enough to try a Pinterest-worthy updo, try adding a faux bun to your hair repertoire. These are temporary hair pieces that will add a little style without the long-term commitment (or expense) of semi-permanent hair extensions.

Benefits of hair extensions

People use hair extensions for a variety of reasons, but the main benefit applies across the board. Hair extensions allow you to easily change or improve your hair’s appearance, without waiting for it to grow or using countless products.

Another great reason to use extensions: if you have fine, thin hair, extensions can add mermaid-like length and volume. You’ll feel like a model every day—or at least every day you use them.

Finally, you’ll be able to try trendy new styles in order to figure out what fits. Why settle for one style when you can have them all?
