Yes, that’s me! And no, unfortunately my hair hasn’t grown miraculously since the last time you saw me. I got some extensions!
I’d been toying with the idea for a long time, as my hair was in a strange in between phase and I didn’t have a clue what to do with it. I don’t think I’ve cut my hair in well over a year, so I thought why not go long this time rather than cutting it short again?!
Thing is, I was a bit put off – there are certain stereotypes that go along with girls who wear extensions, and always thought people would just know that I had extra hair stuck to my head, sometimes it’s so obvious! But after meeting people with long, luxurious extensions that I presumed to be their own hair, I thought it was well worth a try.
I did a lot of research on YouTube and beauty blogs, and decided the best brand to go with was HeadKandy. Now, I’m going to be completely transparent with you – I didn’t pay for the extensions myself. I contacted the company and offered an honest review (plus the probability of them appearing in outfit posts a-plenty!) in return for a set of extensions, after all, I’m forever being contacted by companies I have no interest in, so decided to turn it on it’s head so I could feature something I genuinely want to try out, and why not?!
Now, I’ll save the review for another post (with some before/during/after images) but I can assure you that I’d have no reservations in paying for another set when these have run their course – I absolutely love them. Every time I put them in I have that “just come out of the hairdressers” feeling. I curled them for the first time just before these pictures, which was rather nerve-wracking – but the only issue I had was that they are in far better condition that my own split-end riddled hair!
I’ll give you a thorough run-through with clearer pictures in the review, but for now I’m just getting used to them and what I can do with them. I tried out my first fishtail plait earlier, and can’t wait to come up with other hairstyles! x
