The Long Hair Edit









Earlier this year, I took the plunge and cut off most of my hair. For someone who has had long hair their entire life, it was a huge change for me. Don't get me wrong, I love my new short hair, but when Irresistible Me offered to send me some Clip In Extensions* to review, I was curious enough to say yes. I know, when you first hear (or read) the words 'hair extensions' you may cringe. For years I only associated them with the girls at school who wore them as a cheap and poorly blended hair accessory.  I had never seen the appeal of hair extensions before as my hair has always been long and thick, but now I am a changed woman with an adult hairstyle, I thought I should give them a fair go.









































These extensions are 100% natural Remy hair and I was sent the 200g set, 18 inch length in the colour Rosewood. I think it matches and blends with my natural hair pretty well and I have received so many compliments when wearing these extensions. My mum particularly loves when I wear them because she absolutely despises my short hair, so sometimes I wear them just to make her happy. Shh, don't tell her that.

As someone who has never worn hair extensions before, I definitely didn't anticipate how much weight they would add to my hair! The first time I put these in I had completely forgotten how hot and sweaty long hair can be! Ew. They did grow on me though and through a few tutorials on the Irresistible Me YouTube channel, I started to feel much more comfortable with them clipped into my hair. I found this video super helpful when it came time to clip in my extensions and there were a few handy tips to disguise and blend the extensions in with my natural hair. I found that using a curling wand and giving myself loose curls was my favourite way to wear them, as pictured above.

I am actually so happy with the quality of these extensions and look forward to wearing them more often. Yes, even as an accessoryI'm yet to experiment with these extensions any further, but I definitely want to try and have a go at a few different hairstyles. Next on my list is a long, thick ponytail- one thing I have missed dearly with my short hair.

Have you ever tried clip in hair extensions before, what do you think of them?

  10. They look so natural! I've never tried hair extensions before because the whole process seemed really high maintenance. These look great and seem like they're really easy to put in. Great review Anjelique!

    1. Agreed Amy, I've never really given them a second chance because I always thought they were high maintenance. They are so super easy to clip in and take out, I will definitely think about wearing them more often.

  12. I haven't used extensions in nearly ten years! Ahhh! I have a few pieces of platinum blonde laying about somewhere. I used to love them in but they are a lot of work and I nowhere near (at least I am almost sure of) expertly placed them as you have. They really blend in perfectly with your own. I'd never even tell they were extensions.

  15. Your hair looks so lovely and the extensions are a great match to your hair. Always wanted to go that colour.

    I have had extensions but used them so much they have slowly died especially as keep changing my hair colour. Need so more at some point, they just make you feel so much better when they are in and curled like your hair above.
