The Perfect Extensions For Your Perfect Day
If you’re dreaming about having hair extensions for your wedding day or simply want to achieve a bridal hair look that’s not possible without longer hair or volume, wedding hair extensions are the answer.
A far cry from the straggly strips of the early noughties, (Paris Hilton, we’re looking at you), hair extensions have come a long way. They can now be expertly blended into your own hair and colour matched for a subtle style that looks like your own hair, only better.
Hair Extensions London expert Louise Bailey is recognised by celebrities and the press alike for being one of London’s leading hair extension specialists. With over two decades of experience, she can create some of the most natural tape in hair extension transformations achievable. Whether you decide to have your wedding day extensions fitted by her or a member of her team, you can rest assured you’re in the best hands.
The best hair extension method for your wedding day depends completely on the bride. For brides looking for a temporary solution, we would always recommend clip in hair extensions, especially if they are just wanting something for the big day and don’t want to commit to permanent extension methods. Clip in extensions are also ideal for updos and adding extra volume and length to achieve a fuller bun or ponytail.
Tape hair extensions are also very popular with brides because they can have peace of mind that their hair will look and stay in perfect condition from the wedding through to the honeymoon without having to do much themselves.
Bonded hair extensions are best suited for brides who want their hair looking perfect from their hen do all the way through a long honeymoon without the need for maintenance appointments.
We suggest getting your hair extensions fitted one or two weeks before the wedding. We offer complimentary adjustments to your extensions during this time, which allows the bride to wash the extensions, plan the desired bridal look with their stylist, and get the feel of having extensions in so you know exactly what to expect before the special day.
Most brides would like their hair to be styled on their wedding day, whether it be up or down. The majority of hair extensionists aren’t able to apply hair extensions so they can be worn in different styles without the attachment points becoming visible. However, with our unique application technique, you can quickly switch from a low or high ponytail with maximum comfort and zero visibility of the attachment points.
The bride can wear high ponytails and half-up half-down dos with hair extensions that are fitted correctly. However, it’s worth considering your desired style before opting for a specific hair extension method. Tapes would be the best option for fuller up-dos and down-dos, while bonds will look seamless in sleek down-dos.
If the bride would like extensions fitted for her hen, most tape extensions can be re-fitted and worn three times so the bride can have the hair extensions from her hen all the way through to her honeymoon. If the tape extensions are fitted for the hen do, the bride will just need a re-tape before the wedding. We also recommend another re-tape before the honeymoon to keep your extensions looking perfect throughout the holiday.
To plan the perfect wedding hair extensions, we recommend booking a consultation in our oxford circus salon, the Beauty Club, where you can see our extensive hair collection.
