People desire extensions for a variety of reasons. Some have fine or thin hair that they wish to look thicker, while others who want long hair don't want to wait for their own hair to grow. Some have straight hair and want curls. Extra hair can even be applied to very short or sparse hair, making them an excellent choice for just about anyone who wants fuller, thicker, or longer hair than what grows naturally on their heads.
As thicker, healthier human hair extensions styles increase in popularity, more and more salons are offering this service. Unfortunately, many of these stylists do not have the requisite experience and training to apply extensions correctly.
