If you're anything like me and consider your hair one of your favourite things then you're going to like this post. Recently I had the pleasure of reviewing some beautiful hair extensions. Since I have pretty long hair already I wouldn't say I particularly need extensions for the length but I am crazy about volume! I hate my hair looking flat and I'd often spend forever backcombing and trying every potion going that promises to give me more volume so that's where these come in handy...
This little baby is a Clip in Hair Piece from a website called Undercover Glamour. Undercover Glamour particularly specialise in hair extensions and sell a range of other items such as breast enhancers, strapless bras, false eyelashes and handbag hooks! Basically everything "undercover". My clip in hair piece is in the shade Golden Blonde. I was a little worried at first that it wouldn't match my hair colour because my hair is quite a light blonde although underneath my hair, it's a little darker! You can actually wear the hair piece in different colours to add a flash of colour to your hair a la Christina Aguilera but I thought i'd try to match mine to my actual hair colour.
For only £14.99, I was absolutely blown away by the price. For 18 inches of 100% human hair you cannot ask for more. I'm not a massive expert when it comes to hair extensions but i've done a fair bit of research and this is a ridiculously good price. In fact my Mum recently bought some extensions for £20 and they were horrid. Completely fake hair and just wouldn't curl/straighten at all because they were so synthetic. This clip in hair piece on the other hand does everything I want it to. I've straightened, curled and even plaited it. The hair is easy to brush and doesn't shed. It's extremely easy to use too, if you're not a hair extension expert like me then don't be put off. All you have to do is brush your hair so it's completely tangle free and simply clip the hair extensions in under your actual hair. I promise that they give serious volume!
Here's another thing i've been converted to - single hair streaks. For £6.99 you can expect a night of compliments! I recently wore these in my hair to a family party and got endless compliments on my red streaks. Everybody thought they were real until I unclipped them at the end of the night. I must admit these took a right battering. After taking them out I stupidly put them in my pocket and because they were covered in hairspray they tangled like crazy! Thankfully I managed to unknot them and I'm really surprised that there's actually hair still left. Haha! I wore both of mine in the same place to give a little colour to my hair. I never change my hair colour so I think these are a nice refreshing change. You get a pack of two 100% human hair streaks for £6.99. Again these are so easy to clip in and curl/straighten/wave like a dream.
I thought I'd show you how I store the extensions too. I read somewhere that a good way to store them was just to pop them on a trouser hanger so if that was you then thank you! It's a great idea cause I'd hate to get them all knotted by putting them in a drawer or whatever.
Undercover Glamour also stock full sets of hair extensions for £59.99 and will be expanding their collection in the New Year by adding longer hair extensions. I fully recommend these to anyone and would never recommend anything unless I honestly really did love it. Sorry for the pictures too, I have discovered that hair extensions are the most awkward thing in the world to photograph!
What are your thoughts on the extensions? Sorry for such a long post!
