My favourite purchase of the year thus far has been my hair extensions. I had mixed responses from my friends when I told them that I had ordered extensions, mostly because I already have lots of long hair; some people thought I was being silly, and other people were just as excited as I was to see the result.
I love love love them. I brought the extensions into the salon with me so that my hair stylist would dye my hair to match the dark brown colour I had ordered. Her and her assistant were both really impressed by the quality of the hair. She dyed my hair to perfectly match the extensions, and she even trimmed them so that they appeared natural when attached.
I ordered from Luxy Hair (the photo above is from their website, and is not me. Alas, I do not own my own diva fan for selfies). I chose the 160 gram set in Dark Brown. They’re ahh-mazing. I don’t ever wear them to work (I don’t want them to smell of coffee, and I don’t want an elastic crease in them); but I do wear them to go out and what not.. so at least a couple times each week. I’ve never had hair extensions, so I don’t know if there is a better brand out there but I must say that I am very happy and have only had compliments on my Luxies (which people can’t tell from my real hair).
If you’re toying with the idea of getting yourself some Mermaid hair, I say go for it!
