At Original Diva, we are regularly asked by customers what are the useful tips when choosing where to buy premium quality hair extensions. Considering you can spend anywhere up to $250 per product, it can be a daunting task given the number of ‘claimed’ professional suppliers on the internet. Here we provide a list of key items you should look for when purchasing hair extensions online.
Original Diva has been a trusted supplier of hair extensions for over 10 years. Here is our list of key items customers should consider before buying hair extensions online.
1 – Choosing an Established Experienced Provider
The general rule – “you get what you pay for” very much applies to this industry. Before you rush into buying human hair extensions online, it’s always worthwhile conducting research to ensure you are buying a quality product from a trusted professional supplier who is ethical, experienced in the design, manufacture and supply of human hair extensions. To determine if a provider has the required experience, you should see if they have a track record, that is professional media coverage. For example, Original Diva’s extensions have been shown on television, cable, fashion magazines, fashion parades and worn by world famous celebrities. In addition, our hair extensions have been sold by one of the largest suppliers of hair products in the world on an exclusive basis.
Another thing to enquire about is the source of the hair extensions. Many providers are resellers only with no real understanding of the design, manufacturing or quality control process. We continually see products sold cheaply when it is not the real deal. The manufacture of quality human hair extensions is a complex process, especially when you need product in volume. At Original, our products are designed by us and they are effectively factory direct to you. There is no middle-man which will artificially inflate the price and the manufacturing process is ethical and under globally accepted quality control standards (ISO Accredited). We continually hear horror stories when it comes to the topic of natural hair extensions, so don’t settle for second best!
2 –Quality, Quality, Quality
When you start enquiring about human hair extensions you may hear the phrase “Remy Hair”. Remy hair is when the hair cuticles are facing the same direction, to reduce the real hair extensions from knotting. Remy hair extensions are often more expensive because of the way the hair is harvested. At Original Diva, our 100% human hair extensions are classified as A-Grade remy, making them one of the highest quality extensions available, making them easier to manage and less likely to tangle! Also, the hair is generally thicker at the bottom as compared to some of our competitors who claim the stated length but mix the hair so that it is very thin at the bottom.
3 – Ability to Purchase the Right Colors and Products
A choice of colors is seen as important to get your desired look. Before you order human hair extensions, you need to check the color chart to see if the right color is there and it’s definitely the color you wanted. This is important when purchasing natural hair extensions online because the provider needs to be experienced in producing quality colors which constantly match the color chart and your requirements. At Original Diva, if you happen to buy the wrong color hair extensions, just remember that you can always return them and have them replaced for your ideal color. Many international providers do not provide a return policy which means you are stuck with what you get. If they do provide a return policy, it is generally very expensive and time consuming.
Original Diva has an extensive product range. We specialize in providing you the right product to meet your requirements. This includes full-head extension kits, ponytails, one-piece, highlights and bangs. We continually add to the range so that you can achieve the latest fashion trends.
4 – Delivery Times & Hidden Costs
Check where your products are coming from. This is important for delivery times as well as if you need to return the product for whatever reason, it won’t cost a fortune to get your money back. At Original Diva, we have a dedicated warehouse in Sydney to dispatch and collect products as well as our international dispatch locations. International deliveries can be subject to import duties and taxes which are essentially hidden costs so it is important to read the fine print.
Value for money really is Furthermore the final key to an enjoyable purchase. At Original Diva, our products are factory direct to the consumer to provide our customers with some of the best value for money hair extension products around.
