Beautiful Celebrity Extensions

Do you want us to let you in on a little secret? Extensions are everywhere. Whenever stars have to step out for a movie premiere, the red carpet or a press conference you can bet that their hair extensions are coming along for the ride.

The secret to sensational extensions is subtlety. It is this subtlety which makes them so difficult to spot. When extensions are used appropriately they add length, volume and thickness to hair that may be lacking in one or all of these departments and they are virtually undetectable! If a starlet is on screen, chances are at one point or another she has experimented with extensions.

With that in mind, we are about to showcase some of the best extensions in the biz to give you food for thought on your next visit to the salon.

Selena Gomez

Gomez’s thick head of hair is undoubtedly thanks to some kicking genes. Nonetheless the pint sized star has admitted to using extensions in order to play around with her look.

If you fancy a bob one day and long lavish locks the next, then extensions are the only solution that enables you to mix and match looks dependent on your mood. Extensions offer a sense of freedom and versatility that natural tresses don’t always allow. Selena shows that even celebrities with naturally thick, voluminous hair opt for extensions when they require a change of style. Thanks to appropriate application, Selena’s extensions look subtle and blend perfectly with her own hair.

Paris is another familiar face who enjoys her freedom when it comes to hair. She’s been pictured with numerous short styles including pixie crops and short bobs but she also rocks long Princess hair that passes her bust. Paris has even dabbled with her own line of celebrity extensions which has proved wildly successful.

Brooke’s quintessential look was as Emmeline in ‘The Blue Lagoon’ where she portrayed a shipwrecked teen who found love in paradise. Brooke was renowned for her teaming tresses in the film giving her a wild, animalistic look but many realize that Brooke’s natural hair fell far shorter and extensions were used to bolster the thickness and length of her locks.
