You may have seen the headlines a few weeks ago when Kelly Ripa took off the hair extensions she was wearing that day - all while on-air! She later revealed that her hair extension stylist's bonding equipment broke as he was preparing to reinstall her hair extensions, so he had given her temporary extensions to wear until they could rebook the appointment. The stir it created was unexpected and memorable for many viewers that day, and brought the subject of hair extensions into mainstream America due to the popularity of her morning television show.

Also in the news has been Rihanna, who earlier this month had new hair extensions installed to instantly change her looks, giving her a beautiful long ombre' hairstyle. While Rihanna has worn hair extensions many times in the past, she is also known for changing her styles frequently, and she always seems to create quite a stir when she does. This was evident with today's photos of her sporting a short pixie once again. She is certainly one who loves her hair extensions and the flexibility they give her!

Ten years ago, Hollywood stars and other celebrities kept their fashion secrets quite close to the chest. But in more recent years, they're much more open about what they wear and products they use. Even cosmetic plastic surgeries are no longer taboo. And hair extensions are something that is being talked about all the time. Stars are not afraid to go from a short bob one day to long luxurious locks the next, and they're even going out of their way to show them off and talk about the hair extensions they use.

This trend has also spread into everyday America. Women in the workplace are less afraid to try new styles, colors and even hair extensions as a way of putting their best foot forward and making a statement. Just as hair extensions are seen as accessories to women in Hollywood, they are gaining popularity as fashion accessories to women from all walks of life in everyday life. Hair extensions in San Antonio are growing in popularity as they are all across the country.

You don't have to be a movie star to see the benefits of using quality hair extensions to boost your spirits and give you a look you love!
