While not something commonly disclosed among the starlet set, those long, sleek locks were obviously thanks to expert hair-extension artistry. The fact of the matter is, extensions are as commonplace as lipstick or high heels in Hollywood, and Gomez is just one shining example of how amazingly sophisticated they have become.
Hair extensions are not as taboo as they once were.
Women are realizing that there are so many reasons to consider getting hair extensions.
However, Redway notes that not all human hair is created equal. Non-Remy hair is "low-quality human hair [that] may cause tangling and shedding," while Remy hair is "high-quality human hair, usually from one source, minimizing the chances of the hair becoming tangled."
Virgin-cuticle hair is her top pick. "This is the highest grade of hair," she says. "This hair has not been chemically treated, color-treated, or bleached in any way. Virgin hair is the most expensive type of hair to get."
I like when a client has their base or highlights done before the extensions are put in...after, it is nice if they can return to their colorist for some finessing and glossing.
