I remember the first time I learned that nearly every celebrity wears hair extensions. It was a huge relief knowing that thick long hair wasn’t the norm. After dyeing and heat styling my hair for over a decade (wow, I feel old) my hair has gotten finer and more susceptible to trims. For years (years!) I toyed with the idea of getting hair extensions but was too intimidated to take the plunge. Enter Irresistible Me.
A couple of months ago Irresistible Me generously offered me clip-in hair extensions to review and I couldn’t be more excited to wear them. I went with the Silky Touch Golden Blonde clip-in extensions in 18 inches and 200 grams to balance the thickness of the hair with the length. It was really difficult to choose a color because I have balayage “bronde” hair but the golden blonde turned out to be the perfect choice. Although the shade is ashier than my hair that’s something I can easily fix with Wella toner. For now, though, the color blends in better than I expected. A couple of coworkers even thought the extensions were my natural hair! Since this is my first time wearing hair extensions I looked up a bunch of YouTube tutorials on how to clip them in for fine hair and how to wear them in a ponytail (my favorite style!). You can find my favorite one how-to videos on my Pinterest board. If you’re like me and have fine hair, I don’t recommend wearing all the wefts at once; in these photos, I’m wearing only 4 wefts so as not as to make the seams obvious. As for the extensions themselves, they’re really easy to clip-in and are soft and silky. The best thing about these extensions is that they allow me to maintain blonde balayage without constantly needing to maintain my own hair color. And I can’t wait to experiment with more hairstyles (hello, braids) this summer now that I’ll have longer, thicker hair to play with. P.S. here’s my “before hair” for reference! Do you wear hair extensions? Let me know in the comments.
