Different hair extensions
You might be aware that there are two basic types of hair extensions - synthetic and human hair. While the synthetic ones are much cheaper, these lack to lend the real hair effect.

Only on choosing a closer color and proper style you can get a neat look.
As these are made from human hair, these blend well with your hair. What's more, you can pick from straight, wavy, or curly hair extensions, something that matches your original hair texture and style. There is something for everyone, be it short, medium, or long hair or African-American hair which has a thicker texture.
Though a bit expensive than the synthetic ones, these have much more on offer. As you dye, color, and style your own hair, you can very well do the same with these. Yes, you can color, curl, or even straighten the extensions.
These are available in small strands for highlights or larger wigs to have an entire hair style and are comparatively easy to apply. First, find the ones that complement or contrast your hair color. For a funky shade, you can pick red, orange, blue, green, pink, purple, or turquoise.
