Hair Extensions for Men in San Antonio?

Yes, the number of men who are coming into specialty hair extension salons is starting to grow, especially in areas of the U.S. where longer hair fashions for men are more popular. But will this trend ever reach San Antonio?

This may sound funny to some, but for many men who are in fashion, acting, and other occupations where looking trendy sells, it is growing FAST. New York city stylists are reporting more and more men loving the convenience of hair extensions, and they're opting for the best...quality human hair extensions that are bonded to their own hair. No clip-ins will do here!

Today's headlines are even talking about a weekend football game where a player had his dreadlocks pulled out by another player. Many sources are alleging that the dreadlocks were actually hair extensions! And, yes, there is talk that Hollywood celebs like Brad Pitt and other men have worn them. Now, what about here in San Antonio, Texas?

In my San Antonio specialty salon, Extensions of Yourself, I have received calls from men inquiring about hair extensions, but usually their hopes were that the hair extensions would solve their problem of male pattern baldness, not necessarily for making a fashion statement! While creating human hair extensions for men is basically the same process as when I create lengthening or thickening hair strands for women, applying hair extensions for men with short hair does pose a level of difficulty that not all stylists know how to deal with. Because I see a large number of women who have short and/or thinning hair, sometimes due to medical conditions and the treatments they receive for their illnesses, I deal with these more difficult installations a lot. That said, I think that it will take some time for this New York trend to move its way into San Antonio, but you never know. Women certainly love their hair extensions once they try them, and there's no reason to believe that men won't as well!
