I have made my piece with my shorter hair. However, there are some days that I’m really not feeling the cut. On those days I would love to have the option of hair extensions. It might only be once a week or so but I miss the variety that same with having longer tresses.
My clip-ins take too long to put in on a daily basis now because I have to focus so much on hiding the short hair underneath. I also only own one pack, which was perfect when my hair was long and I just wanted to add some thickness but now one pack won’t cut it (pardon the pun).
I’m not sure what direction to head in so I added some information in on the types of extensions I’m considering. Opinions and advice are very welcome!
One-Piece Hair Extension
I googled ‘one-piece hair extentions’ and came across the ones above, there from Superstrands.com.
And the Jessica Simpson version…
Jessica Simpson Pony Tail
The pony tails cost less than €30 if you buy online (again, I just googled places that sold her range). They’re not made of human hair so styling isn’t an option but it looks fun for occasional use.
Clip-Ins: As I mentioned before, I have Pink Label hair extensions which have one major flaw for short haired girls – there are 3 wide wefts (that don’t reach the full way around my head) and one small for the nape of the neck (sell below). This means you have to be very creative about layering them to hide short hair. It takes far too much time. If I buy more clip ins I will opt for a pack that contains 8 wefts, a few of which are narrow. In retrospect I would also only buy single row extensions as my hair is fine. Thick hair extensions may look amazing in the pack but they don’t suite fine, thin hair – you’ll see the top.
Halo / Flip-Ins: Ok so this is a bit of an eighties phenomenon but it has been revived. I couldn’t find any images of the halo / flip-in I’m afraid but a salon sent me their before and after picture (below). They are basically one hair piece on a wire, the wire sits on the front of your head like a halo. The good thing about these is that they’re easy to pop in, they also go ear to ear which is good for those of us with short hair. I’m just a bit dubious about the wire sliding off my head as you move around. I’d love to hear your experiences.
So what do you think?
