Bride to be? Congratulations! One of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is dreaming up your bridal look. Flawless hair should set off your dress and compliment your style. Many brides opt for hair extensions to elevate their look.

We’ll cover everything you need to know about using hair extensions for a wedding. From the different types of hair extensions to wedding hairstyle tips. 

Which types of hair extensions are best for brides?

We know that every bride is different. From finding the right hair type to choosing your preferred method. We recommend booking a consultation with an expert stylist to discuss your options ahead of the big day. 

At The Hair Alchemist, we offer a free consultation at our beautiful salon in Harrogate.  Touch and feel the hair whilst speaking with your stylist, who will tell you how best to achieve the look you desire. 

Hair Type

We always advise using real human hair over synthetic extensions. Our Russian hair is perfect for creating luxurious, natural-looking locks that blend seamlessly with your real hair. Lightweight and glossy, it moves and flows like real human hair. It can be washed, dried and heat styled making it ideal for any wedding hairdo. 

To guarantee a seamless look, our real human hair is available in a wide variety of colours, so you won’t have to settle for anything less than perfection on your wedding day. We offer a custom colour blending service and will colour match almost every strand to your own natural hair. Your hair extensions will be virtually undetectable. 

Clip in extensions

Looking for a temporary option? Clip in extensions are the perfect way to add volume and length to your natural hair. Get the hair of your dreams without the commitment of permanent extensions. Simply un-clip and go back to your natural style whenever you like. 

Our luxury human hair clip in extensions usually last for up to 6 months, but we have clients that have still worn their extensions after 2 years. Clip in extensions are amazingly versatile, buy your extensions ahead of your wedding day so you can try different styles and perfect your look. 

Micro ring extensions

For brides who want to enjoy their hair for longer, micro ring extensions offer a more permanent option. These clever extensions are undetectable against your natural hair. They add stunning length and volume to your hair that will last into your honeymoon and beyond! 

Micro rings are extremely popular because they are completely safe and damage free. They work by threading the hair extension, along with some of your own hair, through a small metal ring then clamping it shut. The hair is lined with a fine silicone layer that protects it from damage. 

For thin hair, we offer miniature micro ring extensions. An alternative to Nano extensions that won’t damage your hair. They are discreet and comfortable to wear all day long. 

What wedding hairstyles work best with extensions?

From romantic flowing locks to glamorous updos, hair extensions are used to create volume and length, making it easier to achieve your desired hairstyle. The good news is that with the right hair extensions you can achieve any bridal look or style you want.   


What a lot of people don’t know is that hair extensions are great for updo’s. In fact, some updo’s are easier to achieve when you have added volume to style and work with. 

Opt for a sleek high ponytail, half-up-half-down waves or a romantic bun.  Hair extensions are perfect for creating the length you need for beautifully textured braids. Add blooms or jewellery to finish your bridal look. 

Long styles

If you’ve been dreaming of long hair, there’s no need to wait months or even years for your hair to grow. Russian hair extensions add volume and length in a matter of hours. 

Many celebrities use hair extensions to create long waves that are perfect for romantic boho looks. Show off your hair and channel mermaid vibes with curls for days. Or make a statement with sleek, straight length for a minimal look. The options are endless.  

How soon before a wedding should I get extensions?

Arrange for your extensions to be fitted a few weeks before your wedding. This will allow you enough time to get used to washing and caring for your new hair as well as an appointment with your stylist to plan your bridal look. 

At The Hair Alchemist, we provide expert maintenance and aftercare advice to every client. Our hair extensions are easy to look after and with our guidance you’ll grasp your new hair in no time. 

Many brides try extensions for their wedding day and decide to carry them on after. Our luxury Russian hair extensions are designed to last for up to 5 years if looked after well. So you can enjoy your wedding look for years to come. 

How much do hair extensions for a wedding cost?

The cost of your wedding hair extensions can vary depending on the type of hair and the method you choose. Our premium Slavic hair range starts from as little as £299 and will last up to 2 years! 

We understand that you want to look and feel your best on your wedding day and our luxury hair extensions are an investment you won’t regret! Our hair is some of the best available in the whole world and lasts longer than any other brand.  We’re sure you’ll be impressed when you visit us.  As an added bonus, consultations and refreshments are always free!
