10. Everyday wigs

While some people wear wigs on a daily basis due to illness-related hair loss, others simply enjoy experimenting with fashion trends and design. Whatever your choice or need for rocking a hairpiece, there are many different styles available that are perfect for everyday use including sleek synthetic bobs and long, curly wigs made from real hair. Although some of the wigs are already styled, many can also be trimmed after purchase to suit your face shape.

eBay recommends: Choosing something you feel comfortable and confident in be it a bright red bob or a subtler blonde headpiece.

9. Costume wigs

As well as clip in and fusion hair extensions, you’ll also come across a range of costume wigs. These, of course, are a great way to make your hair look funky and are very low maintenance meaning you can wear them again and again with very little hassle. If you’re heading to a Grease/film-themed fancy dress party, for instance, a curly Sandy wig could finish off your outfit perfectly or you could rock the braids as Cleopatra at an Egyptian-themed event.

8. Hair padding/bumpits

Women often use special hair padding to create hair elements and styles with extra volume and hold. Hair padding helps to create everything from quiffs and buns to chignons and beehives, so if you like experimenting here and there with new looks, get hold of a bumpit. Typically, hair is wrapped around the padding so the accessory can’t be seen and is held in place with specially designed grips.

6. Glow-in-the-dark extensions

Sometimes, sticking to the norm just won’t do. It’s great to be a little adventurous from time-to-time, so whether you’re heading to a fancy dress party or just feel like spicing things up a little, glow in the dark hair extensions could be perfect. Many of the products available can be charged in natural or unnatural light and will then glow an eerie shade of green in darkness. Surely glow in the dark extensions are a must-have for any 70s disco party or Halloween witch?

eBay recommends: Sealing the glow in the dark hair into dreads or braiding with your natural hair for a unique two tone effect.

This kind of hairpiece is a great alternative to touching up dyed highlights every couple of months and allows you to change your look more frequently.

2. Brazilian hair extensions

While extensions made from manmade fibres can look extremely realistic, some people prefer to invest in real hair. Brazilian hair extensions, for instance, are often sold in bundles and tend to come completely unprocessed making them easier to wash, dry, curl, straighten or dye. This is great news for anyone who likes the look of Brazilian extensions but wants the flexibility to add colour or volume at a whim.

eBay recommends: Choosing an appropriate length to avoid trimming and wasting too much Brazilian hair.
