We talk so much about hair extensions, clip-Ins, wigs, mermaid hair. We’ve even gone on and on about her care and shampoos with the proper conditioners and treatments. Well, we have talked very little about actually getting your hair done professionally and the cost of such.
Many of my friends I extremely talented and thereby install their own hair extensions or trade favors of installing each other’s hair. Spending weekends over the sink bleaching knots on wigs and plucking hairlines. However, I have other friends that can barely bleach clothes much more bleaching knots on a wig. So, for today I decided to feature the ladder in consideration of what we all pay and dollar for dollar costs to have hair extensions installed at the salon professionally.
HOW MUCH ARE HAIR EXTENSIONS AT A SALON
Of course, this is a loaded question because the cost all depends on the quality of service and even the city and state in which you live in. The costs will be very different from a top-notch salon in Atlanta versus a top-notch salon in Los Angeles.
I thoroughly researched the matter and found that the cost is extremely wide range from $200 to $2500, again depending on where you’re located and the quality of service, you’re being a patron of.
Hair Extensions can cost anywhere from 100 to $300, while higher quality extensions which would be considered to be mid-grade can cost anywhere from 250 to $600. If you’re going super high grade like Kim Kardashian, it would be 1000 to $2500.
Below are national price averages for hair extensions at local salons:
Sew ins will cost: $150 – $300.
Tape in cost: $200+.
Glue ins will cost: $400 – $500.
Clip in cost: $150 – $500.
Micro-bead cost: $300.
Bonded cost: $1,500 – $3000.
Fusion cost: $300 – $1,200.
HAIR EXTENSIONS AT A SALON
The cost can be exorbitant but let’s also consider
the cost can be absorbent however let’s also consider that there is a higher price to pay when doing it yourself if you do not possess the skills. You could mess up the hair, you could dye the hair the wrong shade or color, you could burn a hole in the lace if you have a wig you’re bleaching knots, you can cut too much of the hair extensions themselves as well as you could cut your own hair and end up having to re grow it out or do a big chop.
This is one of those situations where you have to weigh the odds and decide which is the better fit for you, either way if you’re reading this, you’re already doing the right thing because you now thinking about treating yourself.
