Celebs You Didn’t Know Were Faking It with Hair Extensions

It seems like celebrities are cutting their hair and growing it back at record speed, or changing their hair color from day to day without damaging a strand. Most, if not all, of this is done with hair extensions. The Kardashians have become famous for this with their ever-changing hairstyles, but more celebrities than you know are using hair extensions to give their hair a fuller appearance or to achieve bangs or highlights.

Hair is a woman’s crowning glory, but some women are not born with the thickest most lustrous hair. Maybe years of highlighting, blow drying, curling irons and hair straighteners have taken their toll, causing breakage and split ends. Or, you might have dreamed of going really short after seeing your favorite celebrity rocking a gorgeous new look, but after the novelty wears off you might miss your long hair. Gone are the days where you needed years to grow it out. With hair extensions your long hair is back.

From clip-ins to semi-permanent sew-ins and glue-ins, the possibilities are endless. One piece of important advice is this: If you have curly hair make sure you get curly extensions, even if you always blow dry and flat iron your hair. Why? Because if you go swimming, get caught in the rain or just don’t have time to style it, you will end up with your own natural curly hair mixed with straight extensions that will stick out like a sore thumb, and vice versa. If you have straight hair, do not go for curly extensions. Try to stick with the same type of hair as your natural hair for a more natural look, but as they say, “fake it til you make it,” and no one does that better than celebrities.

Here’s Just A Fraction Of The List Of Hollywood Hair Extension Wearers:

Kylie Jenner

The youngest sister of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kylie began wearing extensions at a young age, playing around with different colors. Since then she has experimented not only with color but with length, volume, bangs, and hair styles. Much like her older sisters, she has become a fashion mogul inspiring young girls and women everywhere.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is known for her signature long ponytail, but that’s an extension. Her natural hair is nowhere as long as that when she doesn’t have the extension installed.

Kaley Cuoco

Who doesn’t remember the season when Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory cut her hair into a short pixie? While she is beautiful and can pull it off, many fans were upset because they emulated her hair styles from the show. By the next season her hair was long again and we all know hair doesn’t grow that fast. Yep, she wore hair extensions.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is another celebrity that has gorgeous hair and plays around with different lengths and styles using hair extensions to give her a flawless look.

Jennifer Lopez

A singer/dancer/actress with hair that is as amazing as her body, Jennifer Lopez uses hair extensions, especially when she sports that super long and sleek ponytail. She’s even been known to lose a few extensions on stage during her intense dance routines.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj loves to shock her fans with her clothing choices and her hair styles. Her hair extensions can take her from long to short and varying textures.

Jennifer Aniston

Known for her gorgeous hair, the Friends’ star cut her hair short midway through the sitcom’s reign as the number one show on television, upsetting throngs of women across the country who copied her hairstyle since she first appeared in the pilot. Soon enough, her hair was long again, and it wasn’t by magic.

Halle Berry

Halle Berry looks good with any length hair, but you have to wonder how she goes from pixie cuts to long and from curly to straight so quickly and with ease. It’s all done flawlessly with hair extensions.
