The Ultimate Guide to Buying the Best Hair Extensions - Soie Hair Insights

Buying hair extensions and wigs can be an exciting yet daunting task, especially with the multitude of options available in the market. But, don't worry! Soie Hair is to the rescue!

To ensure you invest in the best quality products that meet your needs, it's essential to consider various factors before making a purchase. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the key considerations for buying the best hair extensions and amazing luxurious wigs.


1. Determine Your Desired Style and Look

Before purchasing hair extensions or wigs, it's important to determine the style and look you want to achieve. Consider factors such as length, color, texture, and volume to ensure the extensions or wig seamlessly blend with your natural hair or desired aesthetic. What helps a lot of our clients is to look up desired hair styles using Google or a social media platform for inspiration.

2. Choose the Right Type of Hair

Hair extensions and wigs come in a variety of hair types, including human hair, raw hair synthetic hair, and blends. 100% human hair extensions and raw hair offer the most natural look and feel, as they can be styled and treated just like your own hair. However, they tend to be more expensive than synthetic options. Synthetic hair extensions are more affordable but may not look as natural or be as versatile as human hair. Consider your budget and styling preferences when choosing the type of hair. We HIGHLY recommend 100% virgin human hair and raw hair for the best bang for your buck!

3. Consider the Quality of the Hair

When purchasing human hair extensions or wigs, quality is paramount. Look for hair that is ethically sourced and of high quality, with intact cuticles that ensure longevity and durability. Raw hair, in which the hair cuticles are aligned in the same direction, is considered the highest quality and offers a seamless, natural look.

4. Select the Right Length and Weight

Hair extensions come in various lengths and weights to suit different preferences and hair types. Consider the length of your natural hair and the desired style when choosing the length of the extensions. Additionally, opt for extensions that are lightweight and comfortable to wear, especially if you plan to wear them for extended periods. Our most requested lengths are shoulder, bra strap and mid-back lengths. 

5. Determine the Attachment Method

Hair extensions can be attached to your natural hair using various methods, including clip-ins, tape-ins, sew-ins, and fusion. Each method offers different benefits and considerations in terms of comfort, longevity, and maintenance. Choose the attachment method that best suits your lifestyle, styling preferences, and hair type.

6. Match Your Hair Color and Texture

To achieve a seamless and natural look, it's crucial to match the color and texture of the extensions or wig to your natural hair. Consider factors such as undertones, highlights, and lowlights to ensure a perfect color match. If you're unsure, consult with a professional stylist or opt for extensions with customizable coloring options.

7. Consider Your Lifestyle and Maintenance Needs

Before purchasing hair extensions or wigs, consider your lifestyle and maintenance needs. If you lead an active lifestyle or have limited time for styling, opt for low-maintenance options that require minimal upkeep. Additionally, consider factors such as heat styling, washing frequency, and product compatibility when choosing the right hair extensions or wigs for you. For example, our 100% virgin hair and raw hair are the best options for an active lifestyle due to humidity and sweat. The quality of the hair will remain the same even for your active lifestyle!

8. Read Reviews and Compare Brands

Before making a purchase, take the time to read reviews and compare different brands and products. Look for reputable brands with positive customer feedback and a track record of providing high-quality hair extensions and wigs. Consider factors such as customer service, return policies, and product warranties when choosing a brand.

9. Set a Realistic Budget

Hair extensions and wigs come in a wide range of price points, so it's important to set a realistic budget based on your preferences and needs. While higher-priced options may offer better quality and longevity, there are also affordable options available that provide satisfactory results. Consider factors such as quality, durability, and styling versatility when determining the value of the product.

10. Consult with a Professional Stylist

If you're unsure about which hair extensions or wigs to choose, consider consulting with a professional stylist who specializes in hair extensions and wigs. A stylist can assess your hair type, texture, and styling preferences to recommend the best options for you. They can also provide guidance on proper installation, maintenance, and styling techniques to ensure optimal results.
