Have you ever envied a celebrity’s hair and wish your own was as long, shiny, flowing, and vibrant looking? Have you ever wondered how they got hair like that? The answer is celebrity hair extensions. It used to be a well kept secret in Hollywood, but now the secret’s out–hair extensions are just on just about every female (and some male) celebrities. The fact that some stars were wearing hair extensions use to be a closely guarded secret, but with the wide availability of hair extensions, and the growing popularity of it, many stars are now opening up about their own hair extensions. Some have even started their own line of celebrity hair extensions.

If you’re wondering which celebrities are wearing hair extensions, the answer may surprise you. In fact, the question should be, “Which celebrities aren’t wearing hair extensions?” This is because most female celebrities have worn hair extensions at one point or another in their careers. One of the most infamous celebrity hair extension wearer is Britney Spears. I say “infamous” because we’ve all seen the paparazzi pictures of her shaving her hair off, and then a few weeks later with a head of long blonde hair again. How did she do this? The answer is of course hair extensions.

Other celebrities who have worn hair extensions are Nicole Ritchie, Cheryl Cole, Faith Hill, Jennifer Aniston, Victoria Beckham, Halle Berry, Beyonce Knowles, and the list goes on and on. In some ways, it’s natural for celebrities to turn to hair extensions. In a business that is always changing and looking for the next big thing, stars have to be able to adapt and change their look and constantly reinvent themselves. They have to be on top of all the latest trends, and the biggest stars among them even set their own trends. Hair extensions allow them to do that, and do it instantly.

Some celebrities love hair extensions so much that they’ve even started their own hair extension lines. Probably the most famous of these is Jessica Simpson’s celebrity hair extension line called HairDo┬« and created with her stylist Ken Paves. These extensions are clip in and use human hair as well as synthetic hair, and can be found in most beauty supply stores and online. The collection is based on styles that Simpson has worn herself.

Another celebrity that started their own celebrity hair extension line is Paris Hilton. The Dreamcatchers Clip-In Go line by Paris was started in 2007, and based on Hilton’s own famous blonde locks. According to Paris, she had been wearing extensions for years, and was inspired to create her own extension line. However, the line was not very successful, and Paris was recently sued by the Dreamcatchers Company. They claimed that she did not fulfill her contract terms, because she was seen wearing a competitor’s hair extensions on her various television and magazine appearances.

With the popularity of hair extensions, and the enormous variety available now, you don’t have to be a celebrity to wear hair extensions. Many everyday women are discovering the joys of hair extensions, and finding that it can suit their lifestyle as well. If you’re thinking about getting hair extensions like your favorite celebrity, there are some things you should keep in mind.

The most important is to choose the best hair extension for you. You should be choosing the best quality extension that you can afford. Some extensions can run into the hundreds and thousands, but they are also the best quality and most durable and long lasting. Another factor to consider is the color of the extensions. If you are going for a more bold and edgy look than bright colored hair extensions might be right up your alley. However, if you just want to add length and volume to your own hair, then finding a color that matches your hair is crucial because if the colors don’t match then it won’t look natural, and it makes the extensions very detectable.

Finally, find a good salon that can apply your extensions. Celebrities go to the high end salons and can pay boku bucks to get their extensions applied by some of the best in the business. However, there are many great and affordable salons that you can go to get your hair extensions done. Getting a good stylist can be the difference between natural looking extensions, and a hair disaster.

There is no reason you cannot have the same sleek and gorgeous hair you see on celebrities. There are so many options out there nowadays for the average woman that celebrity hair extensions are not that super exclusive secret only for celebrities any more.
