Hair Extensions: Are They Cute or Nasty?

We've never understood why some stars think fake hair is so fabulous.

But Hayden Panettiere, Olivia Munn and Jessica Alba have all been seen in clip-on locks recently -- even as the weather gets hotter.



The more expensive extensions are actually made of human hair, but still -- you're wearing someone else's hair. That's kind of nasty, isn't it?

Nevertheless, they're all the rage in Hollywood.

"Extensions can be very fun and rewarding," celebrity stylist Ted Gibson tells StyleList. "They can range in price from $500-$5,000 and last from two weeks to four months, depending on which hair extensions you and your stylist decide on."

We think we'll save our money and work with our real hair.

    I think they're tacky. If you want long hair that badly - grow your REAL hair out, don't clip some fake crap in.

    Cute for special occasions. Some people just cant grow their hair out. It's not that easy for some people.

    just grow your hair out if you want it long so bad. hair extensions give you lice and everyone can tell you have them most of the time.

    Some people pull it off, others do not. It's not much different than wearing a wig.

    Only when used correctly, I have seen and heard some horror stories about extensions. Jessica Alba looks great with hers, if you hadn't told me I wouldn't have known any different.

    I've had to use them once when a hairstylist butchered my hair. They looked good for about 2 months whereafter they turned pretty frizzy and I had to replace them. They're not good for your natural hair though.

    "eww, I don't want to touch your hair because it's fake." If Alba had extensions, I would definitely still touch it. If it hasn't been washed in 2 months, then it's just as nasty as any normal person's hair.

    They've gotten out of hand! Ease up on the clips and weaves. If ya got thin fine hair, embrace it. You're beautiful in all the ways that make you you.

    Actually, they can look really good... and some people have trouble growing their hair long (I know a few girls that just can't grow their hair past a certain length without it getting icky), so extensions are a good solution.

    Personally, I prefer full wigs, but I see nothing wrong with extensions as long as they're done properly.

    I choose cute over nasty, not because I like them, nasty was too strong of a word. I don't understand why anybody would want them, if you like the longer hair, why not grow it out?. What is the difference between a extension and a wig?.

    "The more expensive extensions are actually made of human hair, but still -- you're wearing someone else's hair. That's kind of nasty, isn't it?"

    So I guess people who have hereditary hair loss, or are bald or have a disease that allows their hair to fall out or not grow are nasty because they wear wigs in order to have hair. Some expensive wigs are made from someone else's hair. That's nasty? I guess people stopped washing hair (extensions are washable). Way to make people feel worse about hair pieces, whether they are extensions or wigs.

    I have extension clip ons. I don't wear them all the time, but I wash do wash them. They don't have lice or any other pests or ridden with diseases. So enlighten us SH what's so nasty about it. It's a hair extension, now using someone elses toothbrush, thats nasty.

    It depends on the person and how it looks. The thought that it was someone else's hair is nasty though.

    not only is she wearing someone else hair on her head.......not so nice but who knows what else.
    why not borrow some ones knickers or share tooth brushes i think its totally nasty.
    grow your hair to the length you want then manage it.

    If i can tell that you're wearing some, then it's not cute. If it looks natural, then it's okay!
