My hair is, and always has been, an integral part of my overall look. While brainstorming blog names I tried thinking of which words could be use to capture my signature style, and no look is as signature to me as my curls.
As I'm putting the finishing touches on planning our upcoming wedding in Paris, I've given a lot of thought to my hair. I am leaning towards wearing it down, but I wanted to make sure there would be enough volume that I could pull some back with a clip or braid and still wear some curls down across my back. I'm definitely looking to amp up the drama on my wedding day, so I was thinking of adding some extensions to elevate my look.
So when Irresistible Me approached me about trying their 100% human hair clip in extensions and reviewing them for the blog I was honestly thrilled at the timing! I've never used hair extensions before, and was interested to see what they would feel and look like.
I ordered their Silky Touch 100% Remy Human Hair extensions in medium brown. The website made choosing the right color very easy, and accurate. The medium brown was described as having red undertones, which my hair does not have, but I thought this would add a nice dimension. When I received them, the color was exactly as described, and a close match to my own hair.
I ordered the 200g set in the 22 inch length. This set included 1 piece with 4 clips, 2 pieces with 3 clips, 5 pieces with 2 clips and 2 pieces with 1 clip. I pictured below what I wore (the 4 clip, 3 clip and 2 clip pieces).
Because it is natural human hair, it curled easily and held its shape pretty well throughout the day. This hair is much smoother then my natural texture (it's incredibly soft), so I noticed that it didn't hold curl as well as the rest of my hair did. But you can use product or hairspray to set whatever style you choose, you will just need to hand wash the hair after each use.
As you can see in natural light, the red undertones really come out, but overall they had a very rich brown color I loved. The picture below is all three clips held together to show the volume of hair I added.
I tend to wear my hair parted on the right side, so I placed the 3 clip piece on the left where there was less hair coverage and the 2 clip on the right side. It is recommended that you place the largest piece (the 4 clip) at the nape of your neck, but I attached it a little higher so it would add a little less length.
The clips are incredibly easy to use, and even as a novice to hair extensions, I had no trouble applying them correctly the first time without needing to adjust them for hours.
Below are a few more pictures of times I've worn them out and about. After 3+ hours of wear, I did start to notice the weight of the hair and pull of the clips more and started to feel a very slight headache come on. Nothing serious, but worth mentioning. I think this comes from wearing the 4 clip piece (which is my favorite) rather than the smaller, lighter pieces.
Overall I would absolutely recommend using Irresistible Me products to anyone looking to add volume or length to their hair. It's so much fun to play up the drama with big, voluminous hair, and these make that look so easy and natural! Right now they are running an amazing summer promotion, so if you've been thinking about extensions like me, now is the time to buy!
The number 1 question I am asked by readers is how I style my hair, the products I use, and if I will make a tutorial for my signature hair. Well no fear - I am currently working on getting a post out soon featuring my hair routine including products, and a video demonstrating how I achieve the curls featured here! Oh an p.s. - if you missed it, read about my Living Proof PhD shampoo/conditioner review here!
