HAIRDO, PART TWO


"This VibraliteTM modacrylic fiber 23" Clip-in Wavy Extension from HairUWear adds volume to shorter hair and short hair transforms to luxurious below-the-shoulder length waves in MINUTES. Now any woman can easily and affordably change her length and/or add volume to her own hair with HairDoTM Synthetic Clip-in Hair from Jessica Simpson and Ken Paves."

So last month I tried the HairDo  22" Clip-in Straight ExtensionIt was much too light for my hair color (it was chocolate brown) and also, it would have to be trimmed for it to really blend with my own hair. So the fantastic Julie, over at Folica.com kindly sent me the 23" Inch Wavy Hair extension, in midnight brown (which is almost black).

I was so looking forward to seeing how the curly hair blended in with my own hair. Here's the fab packaging that these babies come in:


After you open up the box, you'll find the hair piece in a hairnet and tied down by three cute, black bows. It's really easy to put it back in this packaging when you are not using the hair also!


And here's the actual hair piece itself: (sorry I forgot to snap a pic of the inside---if you're curious about how it looks, check out my other HairDo review)


It has a nice amount of hair on it. It's not as thick as my own hair, but probably what the average person has! The hair is layered and the curls are gorgeous! I wish my own hair would curl this nicely AND STAY!

Of course I had to curl my own hair before putting this on. I used my Caruso 30 Molecular Ion Steam Hairsetter. I'll be writing up another review for that later!! It took just a few minutes to snap onto my hair and I was ready to snap some quick photos for you!


**Will be reviewing this eyeshadow soon as well....can you guess what brand it is?**

It's hard to take pictures of hair this long....so I asked my good friend Samantha at work to take a couple for me! The lighting at work isn't stellar, but you can see the length it gave me! LOVE!!



Now, you can see that when all the hair is on my back...the color match isn't perfect...but when it's pull to the front/side you can hardly tell. I usually darken my hair in the winter, so that should correct this. But everyone at work had no idea I had a hair piece in! I'm sure my clients couldn't tell either. I felt really sexy with this in!! Something about super long hair can do that to a girl!! I really loved the way this one looked.

At first I wished it was a bit thicker, but as the day wore on, I realized how heavy it would be if it had more hair on it. I did have to take it out by mid-day because it was a bit uncomfortable. It wasn't painful, but it was just getting on my nerves a bit! *lol* I've never worn extensions of any kind, so I suppose it just takes some getting used to. I will def be rocking these again though!! A few ladies I work with already want to make a purchase! So if you are on the fence, I totally recommend you these out. I love this wavy one, but the straight hair will most likely need trimming, unless you already have hair that length and just want to add volume. This one gave me length and volume.


FTC Disclosure: I was sent this for review. I was not paid to write this. This is my honest opinion. I am not affiliated with any of the companies or brands mentioned in this post.

angelpumpkin said...

I pretty impressed to, didn't really think a Caucasian could pull off extensions so well, don't know I'd have been brave enough to try until this. Your hair does look really gorgeous (the makeup does too ;o)

Nicole said...

@Angel, thanks! =) I think anyone with hair long enough to cover the top of the seam of the hair piece can pull it off! Lots of "white" ladies have been rockin' extensions for longer than we probably know!! If you try this, I'd love to hear what you think! Folica.com has great customer service and they ship fast too!
