- Done with damage: Perhaps regular glue-on extensions have compromised the integrity of your hair, or if you're like Kym, you merely want to give your overly-styled strands some much-needed rest. "You can have so much fun with these looks without curling your own hair, putting heat on your hair, or having to blow-dry it every single day," she said.
- Get ready in a flash: If there's no time for a full-on 'do because you're running late or just got back from the gym, temporary extensions could the best trick you'll pull out of your hat. "And it only takes about five minutes [to put them in], so your husbands and your boyfriends will be happy, too, because it won't take you forever to get ready," quipped Kym.
- Mix and match: Lots of temporary extensions are relatively inexpensive, making it easy to combine two styles to get a unique result. In the DWTS line, Kim likes pairing a clip-in wavy pouf (Glamarama) wrapped with a multilayered ponytail (Salsaloosa) for a messy updo. She also recommends using the basic ponytail (Flirtini) with the braided headband (Bellissima) for a more interesting look.
- You can easily change the texture: Not all clip-in and wrap-style extensions are heat-proof, but you'll get more bang for your buck if they are, allowing you to gently heat-style them, all without sizzling your real strands.
