Hair Extensions Through the Ages

Though you may not know it, hair extensions have been around for centuries. Women have always taken pride in their looks and adding or enhancing their hair was a status symbol. Early hair extensions were often made from other materials, reserving the real human hair for the elite classes. Here is a brief history of hair extensions. Ancient Egyptians in 3400 BC, used human hair attached with complex knots and weaves to lengthen the hair of important members of society, including pharaohs. In the Victorian Age, human hair was used by men and women to achieve opulent hairstyles of the day, such as Apollo knots. In the 1700’s, the popular powdered wigs were composed of human hair. 1900 hair extensionsIn the early 1900’s, human hair extensions were called switches and were clipped into the hair. Now, in 2013, hair extensions come in many different forms, synthetic, human hair, as well as blends (human and synthetic).

Methods of attachment range from bonding glue, sewing in with thread, and fusion to name a few.
