There are so many factors that go into pricing extensions. Here are some things to think about..

-Glued, braided, pressed technique

-Quality of hair

-Amount you want put in

-Touchups every few weeks

-Will the extensions need to be colored?

In the Salon I work at they start at $250 for basic extensions. But I had extensions braided in last summer and it was only about $50 and I paid $50 for the hair.

Well I am most likely thinking of getting the pressed technique..I want pretty good quality of hair..to the point where it doesnt look fake. Since my hair is 2 inches below shoulder length, the length i want to get is like this

Im not really looking to dye the extensions.

If you could estimate a price thank you ^.^

Oh and my hair is very light blond..but it is dyed. So yeahh the color is almost about bleach blonde

Go schedule a personal consultation. Before you do that, you should research all the different common methods, that way none of them will seem that foreign to you. A good hairstylist would point you in the proper direction, and after objectively researching, you will be able to tell when a professional is full of ish, or if they have a clue what they are talking about. You'll be paying for the stylist's execution of proper technique, so make sure you find a good one...not just one that knows how to talk a good game.

Quite a few years back, I wish I had taken that advice up above. I had something (roadkill) installed that really ravaged my hair, and it's taken me nearly this long to grow it back out to where I was trying to get it in the first place with extensions.

And while you're at it, take a look at HairBoutique.com... this place has a ton of information.
