Long hair is luxurious, feminine, and very beautiful. Unfortunately, it can take a long time for your hair to grow to your desired length. Dying your hair or using heat tools to style it can result in your hair becoming damaged, further stalling the growth process. Luckily, you have other options available to you. Here are three ways you can get long, glamorous hair today.

1. Extensions

Hair extensions are a great way to try long hair with minimum commitment. You can find clip-in extensions, which you can put on yourself. This is great if you enjoy having short hair most of the time but want long hair for a night out or a particular event. Clip-in extensions aren't meant to be worn for extended periods of time, so you'll have to take them out before you shower or sleep. When choosing extensions, make sure to get ones made from human hair. Synthetic hair can look and feel cheap, and the goal is for your extensions to look as natural as possible.

2. Weaves

Weaves are an option if you'd prefer a longer lasting method of lengthening your hair. When a weave is installed, your hair will first be tightly braided, then your hair dresser will sew bundles of hair into the braids for a secure fit. You should always opt to use human hair bundles when choosing hair for your weave since they look better and are easier to care for. You'll need three bundles for a full weave, so plan accordingly. According to Get the Gloss, when properly installed, a weave can last for up to eight weeks. You can wash and style your weave just as you would your own hair. 

3. Wigs

Wigs are a great option if you need a quick fix. Unlike extensions and weaves which take some time to install, you can pull on a wig as you're heading out the door. This is also a great option for ladies with pixie cuts whose hair isn't long enough to be able to wear a weave. As with any other form of hair extension, you should buy human hair wigs whenever possible. Synthetic wigs are often too shiny to look realistic, and you can't heat style synthetic hair or it will melt.

If you're craving long, luscious locks, you don't have to wait years for your hair to grow. Get the hair you desire instantly with one of these three methods. No matter what your lifestyle is like, there is a hair extension option that is perfect for you.
