Types of Hair Extensions

You see, these types of hair wigs or extensions last only for about 2 to 3 maximum of 4 wears…after which you can see them wither away. They are useless and not worth spending a worthwhile penny on.

  1. Clip-in Hair Extensions
  2. Tape-In Hair Extensions
  3. Fusion Hair Extensions
  4. Weft Hair Extensions

Let’s take a look at what these extension prices are:

1. Clip-In Hair Extensions

clip-in hair extensions

One of the most popular forms of hair extensions adored and loved by hairstylists and people who regularly don them, these clip-in hair extensions are the easiest to use. Simply clip them on and strut away. These hair extensions cost roughly around €35 to €200.

Cost range and factors influencing prices

This is solely based on factors like the make of the hair extensions, what kind of hair was used in the making of the hair extensions and how it was sourced. But when it comes to high-quality human hair extensions, these hair extensions cost you roughly about €300 upwards.

Pros and Cons of Clip-in Extensions


Easy to wear: These hair extensions offer flexibility and comfort. You can take them off whenever you want and put them back on whenever you feel like it. It's a non-committed relationship of sorts but with your hair.

Ideal for first-timers: These are your best friends for those new to hair extensions and how to wear them. You do not need to visit the hairstylist or be one to do them.

Many hairstyles, one hair extension: With clip-in hair extensions, you have the liberty of styling your hair, however you want. Got a sun-kissed vacay to be at? Tie your hair up in a bun! Best friend’s wedding? Fishtail braids with some flowers! Oh, tryna make your ex regret the break-up? WE GOT YOU!


Tangled situation: If you don't air dry them on an extension hanger, be ready for some crazy tangling and then detangling.

Stressed-out scalp: This is the case if you clip them on too tight or improperly. Be sure to check out our videos on how to apply clip-in hair extensions the right way.

Not so customizable: Now you do get thick hair in minutes but the only drawback is you can not personalize the whole hair extension to your liking. There is a science to colouring your hair too. Sometimes the porosity and the pH levels of your natural hair can show you how dark or how light your hair can get.

But in hair extensions, although they are natural, they aren’t attached to a living source giving it all the nutrients or the pH levels it needs. So do not. We repeat DO NOT DIY colour your hair. You will ruin your hair extensions.

2. Tape-In Hair Extensions

It is especially beneficial to those who have severe hair loss, thinning, or balding. When it comes to these hair extensions, they are quite lightweight and do not cause any kind of strain on the scalp or the hair.

Their prices are a tad higher than clip-in hair extensions because of the medical-grade adhesive present in them. These adhesives are meant for this kind of application to preserve the hair and prevent it come to any further damage or breakage.

As for the price, they would easily cost you anywhere between 150€ to 400€; again depending on the quality and the make of the tape in hair extensions.

Factors Influencing Hair Extension Costs

Brand and Quality Standards

Some of the major factors that affect hair extension costs are the make of your hair extension, the quality of hair that was used in building this hair extension and above all the application method as well as the brand that you choose.

In the US a pair of hair extensions could cost you anywhere between $200 to $2000 if they come from a professional hair extension service. We at Gemeria Hair ship Raw Indian Temple Hair to the USA, UAE and the UK while our home turf is in India.

The hair extensions that we craft and design are made out of 100% natural human hair that is sourced ethically from the temples of South India.

Length and Volume

Some of the Other factors that affect hair extension costs are your goals about getting hair extensions. If you are someone who's looking for an increase in length or an increase in volume then the quantity and the length of your hair extension determine the cost of the hair extension. For example at Gemeria, a set of deep curly hair extensions of three pieces would cost you 10199 ₹ for just 14 inches and 90 grams. But if you go for the same type of hair extensions that are 30 inches and 170 grams this would cost you 41499 ₹.

So, as your length increases, your grammage increases or even as your pieces increase does the cost of your hair extension increase.

Hair Quality

Now when you look at the quality of hair extensions two types of hair extensions are available in the market namely synthetic hair extensions and human hair extensions.

Synthetic hair extensions are as cheap as buying it for about 350 to 500 ₹ for a piece. This is because it's made out of plastic and has extremely low-grade qualities that are used in the making of these hair extensions. They are cost-effective if you are looking for some quick solution or if you are using it as a prop.

Whereas when you are talking about human hair extensions a small piece of hair extensions or one piece itself would cost you nothing less than 7000 ₹ per piece. This is because of the method that these hair extensions are made and the fact that they are hair extensions that are made out of 100% natural human hair which has been donated by an actual person.

These human hair extensions then go through a set of treatments to maintain hygiene and for the safety of the user. They are a good long-term option if you plan on adopting human hair extensions into your beauty regime as an everyday thing.
