An upcoming show is coming up and its theme is post apocalyptic. Rather than use my mohawk as is, I want something longer. Here are some images to give you an idea of what I want, taken from this site:
and I also found this wig that kind of has the general look:
My hairdresser gave me some info about the type of extensions I need:
Can anyone recommend how I might achieve this look and a good source for the hair extensions I need? I have been growing out the back part of my hawk longer than the top part of my hawk already. I know my hair wont grow to the length I want, hence the need for extensions.
Im located in the SoCal area so anything I need to physically pick up in this area would also be great.
Im out in the San Bernardino mountains. Tyler mall is quite close. Still, I was told NO CLIP IN wefts. :( Either way, I am trying to be as economical as possible. This is for a charity performance so I will not be makign any of my money back. :/ I seen some of the mall kiosks which sell it but I dont know if they overcharge and if they are selling crap.
Only brands of non-clip in wefts that I know of are Remy, India, and Bohyme. Bohyme and "indian hair" were the things my hairdresser recommended.
Yeah. Human hair is worth it if I can dye it along my real hair. I just dont wanna buy something being overcharged for nor do I want to buy crap. Hence why Im asking here.
Yeah. For me, the extensions need to mount at the crown of my head and everything below it. I had thought I might put SOME on the top areas of my hawk to keep the length even throughout. Still I also have to consider...
Is anyone gonna wanna stand on a stool in a hotel room and hold my hair while I spray it into place? LOL
Kept looking at the above image (from my initial post to this thread) and a friend mentions that it might be photoshopped. Just in case, I decided to do a bit more searching. I seem to remember a photo, professionally shot in the desert, of a woman with a long "tail" on the back of her head with a mohawk. I just cant remember if she shaved the sides or was doing the faux hawk thing.
Anyhow, the photo album is located here:
Any advice on how I might achieve this, both in advising proper extensions to buy (human hair) and styling ideas, let me know.
if you are just wanting the length at the base of your head for the long "tail" thing it would be pretty easy to do. i could prob do a photo tut showing you how if you would like. all you would need is a few single clip extensions cliped near the base, then put the rest up in a death hawk.
