If you dream of long flowing locks but don’t have the patience to grow your hair out for several years, there is another option. Today’s hair extensions blend effortlessly with your natural hair, allowing you to achieve long hair in the time of a salon appointment
However it is important to choose a salon with a good reputation for hair extensions, as poor quality extensions or those not put in well can look terrible or need to be replaced frequently. These 10 London hair extension salons offer a great service to suit a range of budgets.

Taylor Rose is a luxury hair extension salon specializing in Russian Micro Ring hair extensions.
