Luxy Hair is one of the biggest hair extensions brands. Luxy has over 3 million subscribers on YouTube, popular for their hairstyle tutorials and extension transformations.
Celebrities are a fan of Luxy too, with Luxy Hair seen on the likes of Kim Kardashian, Tammy Hembrow and Hailey Bieber. But is Luxy worth all the hype? Let’s find out!
Luxy has a clear website where you can pick the hair “thickness”, the hair color (16 colors) and then the length (16 or 20 inches). I liked how for every color, there was several clear photos of the model wearing white on a white background wearing the hair so I could see the hair color super easily.
One thing I noticed about Luxy was that they only did 16 inches or 20 inches long hair, which is fine, but I would personally prefer a 22 inch length as I am a taller girl, and I couldn’t find this length. Also, I couldn’t find a length description or guide about advice on length, this would have been helpful.
Luxy did include a helpful video next to the product on how to apply them. Luxy also promise easy returns under 60 days. They have a star rated customer review system, with good customer reviews.
Another thing was they didn’t list the prices altogether, so I had to click on the exact product, length and color before it gave a price estimate, so it made it harder to compare which would be cheaper. However, the prices I did see seemed to be affordable prices. And they also offered payment installments on the hair, so you don’t have to pay all in one go.
Overall Luxy Hair has great customer reviews and many perks about shopping with them, so I would shop here.

BELLAMI hair sell hair extensions, wigs, and heat styling tools. BELLAMI have almost 2 million followers on Instagram and are also a big extensions company.
BELLAMI are popular with celebrities, such as Cardi B and Madison Beer. And Nikita Dragun recently worked with BELLAMI to start a synthetic wig line.
My favorite thing is the BELLAMI Beauty Bars, which are available in Las Vegas, Miami, Houston, West Hollywood, New York and Vancouver. The Beauty Bars are perfect if you would rather have the extensions color perfectly matched to your hair by a professional in store rather than online. The Beauty Bars offer many services like “Clip-in Cut”, “Blend MI and Style” and “Revive MI” where they offer an Olaplex deep condition and blow dry. Sign me up!
BELLAMI offer a wide variety of hair extensions, offering lengths in 18, 20, 22, and 24 inches with different varieties of thickness options which was a great selection.
BELLAMI‘s website offers 17 hair colors on most of their hair. The website laid out all the prices clearly and offers plenty of promotions so seem to be affordable.
I had heard some customer reviews about BELLAMI that were a little questionable, but I haven’t tried them out yet. Overall BELLAMI has many benefits to shopping with them.
3. Glam Seamless

Glam Seamless Hair Extensions sell a variety of hair extensions, monofilament wigs, hair care products and hair accessories, and they are a popular extensions company.
They had the largest varieties of colors, over 50 different colors, even catering to red heads and greys. This would be ideal to get a more exact color.
Glam Seamless have a “Glam Room” in New York Soho open every day, where you can book an appointment to get matched for the extensions and get them fitted, styled and blow dried. The salon looks beautiful and they claim that you can choose from over 70 colors and lengths from 10 inches to 32 inches. This is perfect, I just wish they would open more salons around the US.
Glam Seamless claim to have better hair extensions than other brands as they use make their hair thicker and “double drawn” so the ends are thicker. I haven’t seen these extensions in person yet, so I haven’t tested them, but everyone does prefer thicker ends. Their extensions are also pre-cut for better blending of hair.
One thing I would say however is that some of the images used do look a little photoshopped and too perfect, so I am thinking the hair doesn’t look in the photo as it might do in real life.
Also, as Glam Seamless has so many color options, there is only 1 or less photos to be shown. As it is a lot of money to spend online, it would be better if there were several clear photos of each color.
Overall Glam Seamless are also a possible venue. There prices are the usual price maybe a little on the expensive end, but totally affordable.
4. Foxy Locks

Foxy Locks are a UK hair extensions website that ship worldwide. The layout of their website is sophisticated.
Foxy Locks only sell seamless extensions, which means they are all “invisible” and not as noticeable when clipped in. However, selling the fabric weft extensions are of some women’s preference as they are slightly bulkier, they will offer more volume at the base of the hair.
One advantage of Foxy Locks is that the prices were more affordable than other brands I had looked at, they showed some great prices for the length and weight offered. Also, if you live in the UK, the shipping is free and arrives in less than 48 hours.
Foxy Locks have a 60 day return policy where you can return if the color doesn’t match your hair, which I thought was great as this can happen when you buy online.
One downside of Foxy Locks was that there was no length guide I could find. So I was looking at 20 inches extensions and I couldn’t find a picture or guide that referenced how long this length would be compared to the other lengths such as an 18 inch length. I think this could be more useful to select a length you want.
Overall I think Foxy Locks is worth a try because of their affordable prices and you can always return them with their return policy if you don’t like them.

Zala is an Australian hair extensions website but they ship worldwide. I loved their hair extensions and how they sold both a 9 piece set and a 5 piece set. They gave a video for which you can choose. Although I noticed the 9 piece set was a lot more expensive than the 5 piece set.
Zala do over 20 hair extension colors from between 12 to 30 inches, which is a good variety. They also have a 60 day return policy.
An advantage of Zala, was that they have an easy website that is clear, especially for beginners. On the product display page, there was a clear photo of the model wearing the extensions. There was a description about the model’s height (5ft 7), as well as the extensions length where the 20 inch length should fall just below the bust. I didn’t see this on other brands websites, and I think this is helpful to see how long each length is. Also, another perk about Zala was that they said there is a free gift in all orders.
Altogether, Zala has a clear website and are a useful place to shop.

UniWigs sounds like a company that only sells wigs, but they sell a variety of hair extensions too.
UniWigs are a little more expensive than other hair extension brands I looked at, but their customer reviews claim they are high quality hair. They also claim that the hair is 100% human hair, and perfect for brides-to-be. They sell both fabric weft bases and silicone “invisible” wefts depending what you’re looking for. UniWigs also sold a new product option I never saw before and that was the “halo-2-in-1” option where they sell a hair topper for on top of your head giving volume at the roots, as well as a clip in extension to give you the length!
I also thought that UniWigs didn’t offer as much colors as the other brands, and didn’t clearly show the colors in photos, just the image of the hair up-close. However, their shades were salon-quality of blending and lovely colors. Also, they do have a customization service on their website, so if you send photos of your hair or a hair sample, they can replicate the color on custom extensions for you.
Overall, I can tell UniWigs are quite new to hair extensions, but I would buy from here because they have great reviews and seem to be luxury.
Out of all the hair extension online brands I covered, hopefully you know a bit more about what to look for or where to shop. It is important you get what’s right for you, whether that be the color, length, quality, price or anything else that is what you need.
