How much do hair extensions cost?
Hair Extensions are an amazing way for you to add volume and length to your hair, which you may be naturally lacking. However, extensions can be expensive, so we have put together some handy tips to ensure you get the best hair extensions. Be sure to remember that Hair Extension prices will vary depending on the method, amount, and length you decide to have.
Salon vs Private Hair Extensions
The price of hair extensions will depend on what type of hair extensions you want. In salons, there are many different types available depending on the look that you want. Salon prices will also depend on how ‘high-end’ the salon is… there are some pricey ones out there! If you go to a salon, you are more likely to pay for the salon experience as well as the extensions when compared to going private.
However, going private may be a slightly cheaper option, whilst still getting the same quality. With mobile hairdressers, they don’t have to pay for salon rent and bills etc, so they can afford to have lower prices. These hair extensions tend to be cheaper than getting it done in a salon, but it again depends on the area you live and exactly what it is you want.
If you do decide to go private, make sure you have all the information you need before making a decision whether to go ahead with it or not. Make sure they are fully qualified and insured so your hair extensions will be fitted professionally and will less likely become damaged. Another tip is to research the hairdresser and try to get reviews for their services, as this information is less likely to be as readily available as it would with a salon.
Temporary vs Permanent
We’re here to help you decide which hair extensions are right for you so deciding whether to get temporary hair extension or permeant is an important step to getting your dream hair! Temporary hair extensions include clip-in wefts and weaves which are all large sections of hair. They come with the clips already attached to them, so they are the quickest way to get voluminous and long hair and they can be taken out and put in as you wish.
Permanent hair extensions are exactly that, permanent. They are put into your hair by a licensed professional and are made to be treated just like your natural hair. They can be washed and styled with tools as long as you use heat protection! Some permanent hair extensions are reusable and can last up to a year with salon maintenance, whereas some need to be replaced every 4-6 months. (Take a look at our blog on how to care for your Hair Extensions!) link to previous blog.
There are also other factors to consider before purchasing your perfect hair extensions. For example, the quality of hair used. Hair extensions will either be synthetic or real human hair. Synthetic hair tends to be the cheapest option when it comes to hair extensions, this is because it does not last as long as real hair.

At Hair Rehab London, we sell a variety of different hair extensions so if you purchase the hair extensions you want and then contact your local hair extension specialist using our salon finder, you can save money as you will only be paying for the service charge for the attachment.
Another helpful tip is if you follow the right aftercare and maintenance, your hair extension specialist can often reuse your hair extensions at your next visit.
