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.
Yeah. I might want to make the top-to-front area A LITTLE LONGER like in the orange haired couch photo of my original post. I am just doubtful that I could get my overall hairdo to look exactly like that. Im growing my hair out (no trimming or cutting of the hawk), only keeping my sides shaved. My show is in beginning of June so I doubt Ill gain feet and feet of hair since then, which is why the human hair extensions SEEM needed.
Again, to reiterate as I did to another poster, I was told by my hairdresser NOT to buy clip-in extensions but rather wefts (sans clips). She cites that the clips would fall out too easily given that I have only hair for the mohawk (the middle of my head).
Here are 2 of the brands my hairdresser recomended

One of the other reasons I was recommended to refrain from using clip-ins is because I do need to dye my hair to match the orange tresses I already own. So, I figure dying items that are so easy to take on and off might be a pain in the butt.
Yeah. Its hard to say because the picture is so small and has been web optimized. As I said, after a friend pointed it out on his own accord, I began to revisit the possibility. Heck, it could be a hair piece or maybe the whole girl is a mannequin.
The good thing is that it doesnt have to look that perfect as the theme is apocalypse. That pic is like mohawk barbie in that its too perfect. For me, I dont mind a bit of scraggly to it. Think tank girl. LOL. I uploaded that album (not sure if you saw the link to it) that has some more authentic looking hawks with a long "tail" on the rear mohawk hair
