Here's a list of some basic links for beginners. This is not at all definitive by any means, but should offer some general guidelines for those who are trying to figure out various methods, suppliers, and such. Please feel free to add more links or comments.

I've included the links of sellers and extensionists that seem to be reputable, but I'm not affiliated with them, and I can't vouch for the quality of their products or services. ***Please check other threads or post questions before you spend your money on anything.*** The gallery section is especially small, because I don't want to promote anyone I don't have firsthand experience with, but I thought the photos at these might be helpful.
