Hot Trend: Hair Extensions on the Cheap
First there was The Dry Bar. Then braid and bang bars started popping up. Now? Hair extensions only salons. We had to try one
To be completely honest, I was terrified.
I'd seen nightmare images of hair extensions before and after. The pictures of Naomi Campbell and Britney Spears' bald spots are permanently burned into my brain. Plus, I didn't want (nor did I think my hair could handle) any more damage. I'm already making up for using relaxers for years.

But I decided to take one for the team and make an appointment. After all, specialty salons like Just Extensions are popping up like Starbucks and Micki Ds. The Dry Bar seemed to start the trend, and braid bars and bang bars were soon to follow. In fact, these cheap, quick-service salons quickly became one of the biggest beauty trends of 2012, and the fad is only growing in 2013.
So, do hair extensions actually look good when they only cost $150? Did they make my hair fall out? Keep clicking to see my hair extensions before and after photos.
