Why do so many women wear hair extensions now?

I see so many women on tv now with those long hair extensions. Some of them are so long that they make me think of Rapunzel!! I see them on women of all ages. In my personal opinion, I think that it is too much and is too noticeable. It is the first thing that you see, instead of the eyes or smile, etc.

When you add to that the overbleached teeth, I have the impression that I am looking at a large barbie doll instead of a natural woman.

Haven't noticed the extensions but the over-bleached teeth pop right out at you...you can almost get blinded by some of them...they don't look natural.

The only hair extensions I've noticed is on the Q. Some of the hosts and one vendor, Susan G, look awful wearing them. Their just too long and false looking.

I agree with the OP. The extensions are EVERYWHERE. I don't think they look good on anyone -- they just look like fake hair. Just another trend I'll be happy to see go away.Smile

And they seem to keep getting longer and longer! I have the impression that they want to make sure that they are noticed, after spending so much money getting them done! The new host of Entertainment Tonight, Nancy O'Dell, and the female journalists on the show, all have them now.

I don't get it either. It is not attractive and the hair looks so fake. Some of them are so bad and dry and fake looking they look like horses' manes. Ugh.

Not sure but someone asked me the other day if my child was wearing them. Ummm, that would be a no, lol.

Old bags doing everything to look 20 again. Keeping up an appearance is great, but these hags look ridiculous. My son's 30-something friends refer to them as "cougars",make fun of them, and you know what they are used for. Very sad and when I start to "lecture", they remind me that it is the cougars who chase them! Sad.

It may or not be a fad. It is a fact that males like females with longer hair. Maybe it's done for them.

Overbleached teeth are everywhere and I don't think it will ever leave.

Other than going with a trick or treat costume they look pathetic.

it's evidently the big thing right now. where i live they are even wearing wigs, too.

as far as the teeth, you can't bleach your teeth that white. it isn't normal. these people must be getting veneers put on.

One of my friends is a private nurse, and she goes to the homes of women who have had surgery done, and takes care of them for the time that is necessary.

Well, some of her patients are divorced women "of a certain age" who get total makeovers done once they are divorced! They have multiple plastic surgeries done, and the hair extensions, etc. They are trying to look young again. I find it very sad and pathetic.

Their ex-husbands usually dump them for a much younger model, and they, for some reason, imagine that they can compete with these very young women! No matter how much surgery, hair extensions, and spa treatments they have done, they will never look 20 again. They are usually in their 50's when the husband leaves.

if they feel better about themselves, whether it's wearing extensions, plastic surgery, botox, whatever, it's fine with me.

Why? Because they can. If it makes them feel better and they're not hurting anyone, who cares? Not I.

Oh, geez -- Nancy O'Dell's look really awful. I think she is a really beautiful woman. I don't know why in the world they want her to wear those extremely long extensions. They don't look good at all!!

fake hair ias not new it has been around for years!

Not dure why it is enjoying such popularity these days.

We go "Organic" with our diets and Plastic, chemical, fake with our looks.

WEIRD!

I am so sick and tired of seeing hair falling over the shoulders! Then they are always playing with it because it won't stay out of their eyes. Just get rid of the extensions and that includes the QVC hosts except for when they are actually selling them.

Go Steelers!

Anything, anyone wants such as, expensive anti-aging creams, botox, plastic surgery, or if it's wearing hair extensions or wigs, and they feel better about themselves, let them be, it's fine with me. I have thin, fine hair and I wear human hair wigs, cheaper wigs and extensions. I get ask all the time who cuts my hair or told that my hair looks good today. I just say its my new wig. Love them!
