A Guide to Buying Hair Extensions Online

If you haven’t ever bought hair extensions online, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Instead of browsing endless sites that make claims to have the best hair extensions, educate yourself on what to look for. At Shari’s Hair Boutique, we're here to help educate you about hair extensions and hair accessories, as well as provide you with the highest quality hair extensions on the market. Keep reading to learn more about what to look for when purchasing hair online! 

Figure Out What Type of Hair it Is

When purchasing hair extensions online, you’ll most likely come across words that describe the hair. Many times hairpieces will be labeled as “remy hair” or “virgin hair.” However, if the hair is described as neither of these, it's probably best that you search elsewhere. Hair that isn’t qualified can easily break or shed. At Shari’s Hair Boutique, all of our hair extensions are 100% virgin hair. This means that they have not been chemically treated and are the purest form of hair. Learn more about virgin hair by visiting our previous blog post

You’ll also want to double-check the type of hair that you’re buying. Double-check to make sure that you’re buying real human hair and not synthetic hair. Synthetic hair is not as easy to maintain. Not only are you unable to heat style it, but synthetic hair tends to be harder to blend than real hair. Human hair extensions are able to withstand levels of heat and styling and have a much more natural appearance to them. If you’re unsure if the retailer you’re buying from is selling natural hair versus synthetic, don’t be afraid to ask or find another retailer that does sell real hair. 

Do Your Research

When shopping online, it can be easy for any retailer to make false claims and use images from the internet. To make sure that you’re getting the best of the best, do your research about these hair retailers. A great place to start is by asking your hairdresser about any retailers that they know of or would recommend. If any of your friends have hair extensions that they’ve bought online, ask them where they purchased theirs. Chances are, you’ll get real and unbiased feedback from those who you trust most. 

You’ll also want to make sure that this retailer is accredited and has a legitimate site. If you’re looking online and the images don’t look professional or look like they were pulled straight out of Google Images, you may want to look elsewhere. At Shari’s Hair Boutique, we’re a Top Rated Local®️ Hair Extensions Retailer. We also do all of our own product shots so you can see what you’re really getting. We even have images of models wearing our own hairpieces so you can see how they’ll look on a real person. 

Trust Your Gut

If you’re browsing a website that sells hair extensions and you have a weird feeling about them, trust your instincts. You’ll also want to check their store policies. How fast are the items being shipped, where are they shipped from, and can you return them if they don’t meet your expectations. If you have questions about our hair products, you can easily find answers on our FAQ’s page or you can reach out and contact us. We pride ourselves on our customer service and are here to make sure you’re getting the best of the best!
