Hair extensions are not just a modern, 21st century celebrity-driven fashion phenomenon; indeed they have been around for centuries. From the hairpieces of Ancient Egyptian women to the elaborate hairpiece-wigs of 17th century Europe, hair extensions have proven to be a girl's best friend throughout the ages. A hair extension is a wonderful way of quickly and easily lengthening hair and adding volume to it. Not only that but they can conveniently be styled and, if of the highest quality, have a natural-looking radiance which gives the most glamorous of finishes. So, if you think a hair extension product may be too much hassle or might damage your hair, think again.
