Clip Hair Double Wefted Clip In Hair Extensions

When these extensions arrived last week I could not wait to put them in, I put them in literally five minutes after they arrived and loved them instantly. 

The extensions are the Deluxe set shade (4) which contains 170g of hair. I chose the 20" because my hair naturally is around 18" and these are the length I usually get when I buy extensions anyway. They come in this clear packaging which most extensions do and the piece of card which has on the company's name, about the extensions and that they are 100% remy human hair which is the best kind of hair for extensions.

On the back of the piece of card it gives you a step by step guide on how to attach the clip in extensions which I think is great for those people who don't know how, and it also tells you how to remove the hair extensions too which again I think is good for those people who don't know how, I haven't ever had any of this information on hair extensions that I have brought in the past so the fact that these extensions do have this is a bonus, even though I already know how to use them etc.. I still think it's a good thing to do. 

The first thing I noticed once I took the extensions out of the packet was that they where tied together like this, now these already have clips on which intrigued me, my usual extensions are just one big weft which I have to cut down and then sew the clips on myself which can sometimes be a pain and these ones already have the clips on which I like and with the weft I usually buy it is wrapped around a small piece of cardboard which is ok but I do prefer how these where tied like this.

Once I had untied the gold ribbon (sorry I'm not sure what it's called) I could not believe how much hair there was and it was so thick, All together the set contains -
Two 8 inch (20cm) wide wefts - 3 clips per weft
Two 6 inch (15cm) wide wefts - 3 clips per weft
Two 4 inch (10cm) wide wefts - 2 clips per weft
Two 2 inch (5cm) wide wefts - 1 clip per weft

Now here is my hair without any extensions or any styling done to it, as you can see it's long but quite fine. My hair is my natural colour but does tend to look different under certain lighting/on camera. The very ends of my hair are lighter than the top, they always have been I'm not sure why so I tend to match my extensions to the top of my hair. 

Here is my hair styled and with the extensions in, as you can see they make a lot of difference to my hair. Because of there being a lot of hair I thought it would be heavy on my head if I wore all the wefts as usually I just wear two or three wefts, any more than that hurts my head. I put them all in and they did not hurt my head at all and they also didn't feel heavy. I have had these for a week now and have wore them everyday, I can honestly say they have felt fine. I love the clips on them as they are a bit smaller to the ones I am use to and they are really secure and sturdy. These do match my hair well, in the pictures for some reason the ends of my hair look black but they aren't. Because they extensions are 100% remy human hair you can use heat on them and style them however you like, I just tend to keep mine straight I don't like to use heat on my extensions but occasionally I will curl them.

Overall I really would recommend these extensions for people with fine hair or even thick hair as normal extensions don't tend to have enough hair in them for thicker hair but these will be perfect for you. Obviously I can't say how they last etc.. because I've only had them a week so I will be doing another post in a couple of months to show you how they look and what I think of them then. 

The extension's are £69.99 and are available to buy from clip hair - link
They have lots of other different shades and also sell hair wefts/weaves, micro rings, pre - bonded, clip in pony tails and also clip in fringes. They do lots of lengths in the extensions, from 10 inch up to 26 inch.

Beauty Works Messy Beehive Bun: Summer Essential

If you want the perfect messy bun within minutes then you will love this. 

The Beauty Works Messy Beehive Bun came in the post last week along with the Flower Braid Head Band  and I knew straight away when I saw it that it would be the perfect messy bun. 
I was just as excited receiving this as I was the braid, probably more excited in fact. 
I don't have thick hair so I find it hard to create the perfect messy bun, even with using extensions. 

The bun is 100% synthetic fibre hair but doesn't look like the usual tacky shiny synthetic at all, it looks just like real hair. It is the perfect size, not too big and not too small. I have the shade Hot Toffee (4) which blends in perfectly with my hair colour.

The bun has two combs inside it which slide into your own hair to keep it in place and it also has a drawstring on too which is to tighten over your own bun that you make with your own hair so that it stays on securely. I first made a low side bun with my own hair then popped the messy bun over it and secured it more with hair grips. When I done the high bun on top of my head I just done the same thing I did with the low side bun. This is perfect for the summer and festivals as it is easy to use,doesn't take long to attach and looks really nice and natural. 

  Here I have done two styles of how the bun can be used. I personally prefer the low bun but it can be used for a high bun too, it depends on whichever you prefer. The bun could also be used for a low bun at the back of the head or even mid way up towards the top of the head. You could also use it with the flower braid which I think would look nice when put around a low bun for the summer time. 

The Messy Beehive Bun is £29.99 on the Beauty Works website - link
It is available in 16 shades so you are sure to find one that matches your hair colour. 
I highly recommend this bun, I love it and I think that you will too.

If you do purchase one or have one already let me know in a comment below, I'd love to know your thoughts :)

Beauty Works Flower Braid Head Band: Festival Essential

I was so excited when this lovely item came through the post this week (along with another lovely hair accessory which will be in my next post) and I literally tried it out as soon as it arrived, I couldn't wait!

There are so many festivals this year and if you are a festival chick you will definitely need to buy this to take with you. When I opened the box that this was in I instantly fell in love with it because of how pretty it looks, the flowers are so cute and this picture doesn't really do them any justice as they look even better in real life. The hair of the plait is synthetic hair I believe but it doesn't look like synthetic hair at all, we all know synthetic as being that cheap, shiny, tacky looking hair that doesn't look real whatsoever and I think this is what scares a lot of us when it comes to buying synthetic hair but honestly this looks so real and when on my hair blends in really well. 

The braid has an elastic part at the back which makes it able to fit any size head whether you have a pea head like me (it seems so small) or a bigger head, this will fit you and the elastic isn't uncomfortable neither is the braid itself, it feels really comfortable and you can't even tell it's there until you look in the mirror, it is so lightweight.

There are so many ways that you can style your hair with the braid. I decided to do mine big and straight but slightly messy. On the first photo I have put the braid over my hair so that it pushes into my hair and gives some messy volume at the top, with doing this style you will see the elastic at the back of my head because it is placed over my hair rather than under whereas the second photo I have placed the braid under my hair at the back and sides and added more volume into it, by doing this it hides the elastic. 

There are so many styles that you can do such as a fishtail plait/braid (which I haven't got the hang of doing yet), you could do a high big bun and wrap the braid around it or maybe even do beach waves or big curls then just add the braid into your style like I have on the photo's. There are so many ways to style it, I'm sure you will find one that suits you. 

I have the shade Hot Toffee (4), there are 10 shades available, you will be sure to find one that will match your hair colour. 

At the moment the Flower Braid is on offer for £7.99 on the Beauty Works website - link
Purchase one, I promise you won't regret it, it's perfect for summer, the price is great, and Pixie Lott has one which is very similar, so what you waiting for?

If you do buy one I'd love to know your thoughts, just leave a little comment below :)
