If you didn't know I had shoulder length hair would you know I had hair extensions in here?
I have in extensions by Halo hair. This is a new system to me but I am behind in the extension game.
This set includes 12 pieces of well crafted extensions. Normally I use 3 wefts but in this set you get 6 singles for around the hairline 3 medium and 3 larger.
The single pieces really make a difference and I'm not sure why I haven't had them earlier.
Dee contacted me from Halo and asked if she could send me some extensions to review.
I gave her my shade and viola!
I was so excited to receive them and they haven't disappointed me at all.
Noticeable differences to my other extensions.
- Rubber/silicone strip to add extra hold and protect hair from snapping
Quality clips with extra strip
Cheaper small clips with no protecting strip
Also can you see on the quality strip it is held on with an extra stitch for security!
It might be hard to see but I've marked it for you.
- Halo extensions are doubled over for thickness, I don't know the exact craftsmanship of the weft however I can see that compared to my others it has a double band saving me the hassle of stitching it myself.
Extension I doubled. The quality is obviously different
As with all extensions the ends are a bit wispy so my advice is to trim them, my pet peeve is girls who wear extensions down to their arse and their natural hair is only half that length so you see that visible line.
It's so tacky and looks absolutely fake. I think hair extensions should blend with your own to create a natural looking mane. I will cut mine a couple of inches longer than my hair to create that extra thickness and bounce.
I think Victoria B has a lot of style however her extensions are always lank, thin and cheap looking even though I bet she paid a small fortune.
If she kept a shoulder length cut and used them for volume her hair would look amazing.
The set I received was the Deluxe 24" Remy human hair extensions for £79.00
It seems pricey but thats because it is real hair that can be treated like your own so use heat tools, wash and even dye. Beware though over styling will dry them out so look after them.
I paid £60.00 for mine previous to these from a stall in the Metro Centre and I'm gutted after seeing the price of some on the Halo website. The ones I bought were pathetically thin so I had to buy 3 packs and double them up myself and the clips are so thin and weak.
I adore these and am very grateful to have been offered to try them as I have contemplating buying new ones for a few weeks.
I would have bought myself the 20" ones as I don't need the length too long but if you have very long hair the 24" will suit you well.
The colour system is fairly spot on, I chose the chocolate colour but even though my hair has been dyed since picking the colour they still match well.
If the price is an issue or if you have thin hair and need less wefts try a half head which is a lot cheaper or the synthetic hair.
Personally I'd rather wait and save for human hair it will be worth it!
