Hair extensions can work miracles on making hair look luscious but over the years, the stars have seen some truly hair-raising extension failures. 

Online hair and beauty retailer has picked out some of the worst hair extensions culprits including the likes of Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Christina Aguilera. 

Whilst some of the stars have had a famous love hate relationship with these tacky tresses, surprisingly some more stylish celebs like Beyoncé and Victoria Beckham have some hair extension skeletons hiding in their closet. From stringy strands to ridiculous colours, these celebrities’ hair extension past has some shocking looks.


A spokesperson from said: “We’ve all got photos that we look back on and say what was I thinking? So it’s reassuring to know that no matter how perfect these celebs seem, they’ve had their share of hair care faux pas too. 


“Hair extensions may seem like a quick fix to get the hair you want but unless they are applied with care it can lead to some sticky situations and embarrassing photos. 

“Everyone wants long, thick, luscious hair and extensions are a great way of achieving this, you just need to take time and find the right ones for you.”


Here’s a reminder of these celebrities’ hair extension nightmares:


1.    Britney Spears

Recently Britney has been looking great in preparation for her Piece of Me tour in Vegas but no one can forget those dodgy hair extensions of the early 00’s. 


Nothing can beat the nest of tendrils and visible scalp nightmares she’s had in the past. If you are considering getting hair extensions, here’s the prime example of what not to do.



2.    Lindsay Lohan

No, Lindsay, you most definitely cannot sit with us with hair extensions like that.

The actress’ dodgy two-toned fiasco is the best advertisement for the importance of colour matching your hair extensions to blend with your natural colour.


3.    Pamela Anderson

Pamela’s new chic pixie cut makeover is a far cry from her previous history with hair extensions.


With literally hair-raising roots and a clearly visible scalp, the model turned actress has seen some bad hair days. If she decides to clip in some extensions again, she better watch out for these mistakes.


4.    Paris Hilton

She may be a multi-millionaire but the heiress’ straggly hair extensions during the early 00’s certainly didn’t show it.


We much prefer the darker locks the socialite has been rocking more recently and it seems she’s learnt a thing or two about how to wear hair extensions.


5. Victoria Beckham


Now she’s considered one of the most stylish women on the planet but remember when Posh Spice sported that bleached cropped hairstyle?


She had a little help from some not very well disguised hair extensions. Having a dot to dot on your head is not a good look.


6. Katie Price


Thankfully Katie Price has been taking better care of her hair more recently but the toll of her extensions on her scalp was obvious when she was wearing them everyday.  


If you are wearing synthetic hair extensions as opposed to bonded human hair ones, try to avoid wearing them everyday and instead save for special occasions.


7. Taylor Momsen


The length of the Gossip Girl star’s hair extensions was astronomical – were they hair extensions attached to hair extensions? This nexus of hair needs to stop.


If you are using hair extensions to make your hair look longer, don’t go overboard like Taylor and stick to a more natural and realistic length.


8. Nicole Richie


Ombre and dip dye looks are a great way to go but Nicole Richie got the wrong idea with her hair extensions.


Back in the early 00’s she sported some questionable random brown hair extensions mixed with her trademark blonde style.


If you want have two tones in your hair extensions, pick colours that blend more naturally together to avoid gappy styling.


9.  Christina Aguilera


The Voice US judge has always rocked some questionable hairstyles but her permed hair extensions with straight pink streaks have got to be one of her worst.


If you are wearing hair extensions, make sure to keep your styling consistent across every strand otherwise is will show in photos.


10. Beyoncé


Even the self-proclaimed flawless Queen B doesn’t always get it right. Her extra long braided hair extensions looked straggly and are, quite frankly, a hazard when closing car doors.


We much prefer the singer’s two-toned bob look with the help of some more natural looking hair extensions.
