Hello.  I don't were extensions or anything, but I do like to pop in here once in a while to see the pictures of the great hairstyles a lot of you come up with. 

Anyway, I noticed today several threads mentioned the cost of getting extensions.  Ye gods!  Talk about sticker shock.  I had no idea.

For $4500 I could probably get my house sided.  I am curious - how long do these extensions last?  I mean if I paid 2K for a style, I should hope they would be good for a year at the very least.

Depending on the kind of extensions, they last for a few months.  Not all extensions cost upwards of $1000, but yes some do.  Hair is expensive too (at least good hair is).

But hey, I sleep good at night, and all the bills are paid...my house is brick (and paid for) so I don't need siding

There is a world of extension options below $1,800. From what I can tell, most places that charge several thousand are Great Lengths places, who charge so much purely because they can (or places that do it on purpose, to seem "exclusive"). Oh, and I think Hairlocs and Eurolocs charge that much too- not that they're necessarily any good.

Bottom line: look at -all- your options, both in your area and not (for $700 you could fly to LA, have your hair done by Kristin of HairCandy, and still come out ahead). And look at all your installation-method options, too- there's a lot more besides fusion out there.

I have thick, super red, butt length extensions.  The cost of the Plastikhaar, and shrinkies I used, the install was under $100.

Most of the extension jobs that I do are under $1000, and that includes the hair too.

Awe Thanks Rae. I typically charge $500 for a full set but there are more bargains out there. I've heard of other places also charging better prices around $600-800. The deals are out there, you just need to find them

I have a "find a stylist" page on my website if you'd like to check out some other stylist. Here's the link if you're interested:
