Before getting extensions, choose a reputable salon. If you don’t live in a big city, it’s especially important to do your homework. “Ask a ton of questions—if the salon is trustworthy, they’ll be able to answer all of them,” says Fugate.
What kind of extensions do you use?
You want the answer to be 100 percent human hair.
Where do you source the hair from?
The most common places are India and Europe. If you’re brunette or want to add volume, Indian hair is your best bet. If you’re blonde or have finer hair, European is a better fit (though a bit pricier).
Do you use “Remy hair?”
Remy hair is a process in which the cuticles are kept in tact (and laid in the same direction) while the hair is collected and treated, so hair is smoother and less frizzy.
