    it depends on how much u wanna spend
    some will last longer than others and look better
    Needless to say, the more expensive, the better it looks and the longer it lasts. the cheap stuff feels like crappy old hair whereas the good stuff can last up to 2-3 months and still feel nice. the hair to look for is called great lengths. it uses a protein bond which attaches to the hair. i hope this helps if you wanna know more let me know

    yah i heard greath lenghts is the best but thres alota new good ones (u kno advance technology lol) and as long as it has a keratin bond or sumthin its suppose to be good...also alota the places i called listed on here gave me estimates and they kinda charge more..but ima go and see...i kno this lady that owns a salon does it for $35 an hr and she has clients that have had it for a yr now so she must be good..hmm well c....

    but does anyone know the best place to BUY the hair?..im guessin butterflies in metro?...

    args...u cannot buy great lengths at Butterflies. Butterflies is just a crappy store. no offence. it doesn\'t sell good professional extentions. i don\'t even think its real hair. the better the hair is, the longer it will last and the better it will look. if u want a good job, u mite as well pay the money for it. cuz u get wut u pay for. Just for the extensions itself, for great lengths will cost u at least 400 bucks just to let u know

    I heard that hair extensions are basically glued onto your own real hair. And due to the tightness, may result in your own real hair to fall out! Yikes!:woohoo:

    I wouldn\'t want to run my fingers through a girls hair only to get caught in her glued-on extensions! lol. That\'s just nasty! :pinch:

    What\'s wrong with your own real hair? Why the need for this unnecessary vanity?
