Hair extensions can cost anywhere from $200-$1,000.00. The price is dependent on what type of hair you buy. Synthetic hair is cheaper than using real human hair and even the prices of real human hair can vary significantly depending on what type of human hair it is. For example if you were to purchase Virgin human hair, this type is some of the most expensive hair except wholesale virgin hair because virgin hair means the hair is guaranteed to have never been colored, chemically treated or in most cases never even had hot appliances such as hair dryers or curling irons used on the hair.
Another factor in the cost of the pieces is the length of the hair. Once you start looking into purchasing pieces of 18 inches or longer, then the price for the pieces will nearly double that then the shorter pieces.
The final factor that determines the price of the hair pieces is the method in which you want the pieces to attach to your head. If you just want to be able to clip in some pieces of real hair yourself, then you can get away with spending about $200-300 on extensions. Should you opt to have the extensions permanently attached to your hair then you will most likely be spending $500-$2,000.00 to have a certified hair extensions specialist attach your extensions to your own hair. The method of attachment will determine the final price as well because some methods take several hours in the salon to perform and some methods are a bit faster.
