Hair Extensions Cheat Sheet: Get Long Hair in a Snap
Why should celebrities and strippers have all the fun? What you need to know about going long
Brazilian: The most sought-after hair on the market, this hair is coarse in texture and heavy in density. Perfect if you want thick, bouncy hair that comes in rich brown to black hair colors.
Indian: Great if you want shiny, straight hair that comes in very long lengths and mimics most hair textures.
Chinese: Thicker and stronger than European and Indian hair, this hair type is hardest to curl when it's bought unprocessed. Chinese hair is best for those who want stick straight hair and have naturally thick hair. Typically, it's a bit higher in quality than Indian hair.
Peruvian: One of the most exotic hair types, Peruvian provides you with the strength and body of Brazilian hair with the smoothness of European hair. It tends to be more expensive than Brazilian hair as well.
Malaysian: This one is great if you're looking for naturally wavy or curly hair extensions. It's mostly available in darker colors and can be expensive.
European: This type of hair is perfect for those of Caucasian descent seeking hair that is similar to their natural hair type. Since lighter hair tones are typically more expensive, this (along with it being very rare) adds to its high price.
