hair extensions


Recommended Posts

Since I cut off my 2yrs of hair growth. I miss it. I know I could go with a wig until it grows back.


I was wondering about Hair extensions, Has anyone looked into it? Is there a minimum length your hair needs to be to get extensions? What is the aprox cost?


Thanks, everyone

I have used clip in hair extensions of a few types before I went red-head but I would have to get a new set of them that would be expensive since my red is a custom color now.  I have pictures in my gallery of the dark blond pieces I used early in my game.  You will want your hair to be about 4 to 5 inches long on top for a reason I think you can see up there.  I do not recommend the glue in kind due to their expense.  Sally Beauty Supply carries a good selection of color options, but some can get to be aboout $120.00 in human hair.

Kind of funny I was looking at hair extensions this weekend but don’t have a clue about them. I’m gonna call a couple of salons around me and make an appointment

My wife ordered me a bunch of hair extensions as a surprise for my birthday this year. She bought me 2 really cute curly buns and from a separate company she also bought me these nice looking clip-on bangs to see if I would look good in short front bangs without actually cutting my existing ones. Sadly, the front bangs never arrived. I got the curly buns but unfortunately they did not match the color shown in the pictures on the company website...at all. If anyone buys hair products like this via the web, keep this in mind.


Here’s an image of one that ‘sort of’ worked until my recent hair salon visit that added light caramel highlights to my hair.

My hair was growing out because of Covid not being able to get it cut.  So, I thought .. Great! I will by a 6"inch human hair top cover extension (to cover my bald spot) and to just see how it might look. 

They came in various sizes.  6 inch was the smallest, but you can always have them professionally cut to fit your hair style.

Then,  the barbers/salons opened again, got my hair cut (back to normal man short) and then the extension arrived ... too late.  Oh well, maybe I will have an opportunity to grow it out again someday. 

Looks like I will be a wig wearer unless my hair magically grows back on HRT one day?‍?

      You do and thank you.  After the last time, something clicked and I'm starting to see the real me in the mirror and in my self image.

      Again, congratulations! Still jealous though. 🥺   Hugs!

      God, I love being a girl!

      My guess would be a realization of, "Nobody is agreeing with me. Maybe I'm wrong?" Good on her. Good on the nurse and like I keep telling you, you look just like a skinnier version of my sister-in-law. She's never mentioned anybody mis-gendering her so I think you're stuck with being "Liz the woman." Congratulations!   Hugs!

      I’m planning on having these done this summer in Thailand, so I will be following your adventure. Good luck! You must be so excited!

      Lots of good stuff in that story.  It sounds like your wife's acceptance doesn't run in a straight line...like a graph that ultimately goes upward, but is kinda jagged along the way.

      She must have really wanted them to retrieve you, @ElizabethStar . The other 'she/her' talk? That'd make me want to accompany my spouse everywhere!

      I don’t know anything about Mexico, but I just had the surgery in Japan—less than a week ago. I can share more about my own experience, if that’s what you decide to have done. Good luck!

      Knowing no trans people whatever locally (at least as far as I know) and just living in the community I don't see any advantage to it. To me it is preferable to live in the general population rather than segregation, which would likely bring as many problems as it solves.   Tracy

      Yay! progress! What a happy story!  I took a check into the bank today to get it cashed and the cashier said she liked the color of my nail polish! So nice!
    • AgnesBardsie
      I find this so true! The girl is fearless whereas the boy is a big chicken! Whenever I feel doubts rising I tell myself, "Agnes, you're in charge. Do what needs to be done," and it gets done! It's amazing! Agnes can talk to complete strangers about anything under the sun! I love this girl!
    • AgnesBardsie
      Great question! Number one. Be true to yourself. It's your inner sense that matters, no one else. When doubts creep in, put them under a light and ask yourself honestly where they're coming from. Is it anticipation of someone's negative opinion that is causing the doubt? If so, remember that they haven't actually responded yet. It's the anticipation that's causing the doubt. You know in yourself better than anyone else who you are. Keep your focus on that. Love who you are. Others will love you for who you are as a result. Two more pieces of advice. (1) Breathe! (2) Smile!

      To be honest I’m not completely out yet but my parents know and my friends so I can maybe tell you about that feeling, maybe, that’s more on my experience. I told some of my friends and my partner before saying it to my parents and I did not feel really better because I still had to tell it to my parents so I just kept thinking about this. So maybe idk this is based on me but maybe it’s because you’re still stressed about the fact that your sister and mother don’t know yet. And again you might not feel exactly better after they know or maybe yes depending on their reaction but you might feel it off your shoulders, but like I said it’s my experience and we’re all different. So I don’t really know but at least you’ll have a good end to this, and that you’ll be accepted by your mother and sister even if it might take a while ^^ so good luck! I think you can do it!
