Hair Extensions

I’ve been wearing my hair short for over a year now, but over the summer I went from a long bob (lob) to an ever shorter more extreme a-line cut (seen here).  As much as I loved having a “hairstyle”, I did miss being able to pull my hair into a ponytail! So I decided to grow my hair out. But as you guys know, this in-between length has been driving me crazy! I’ve had tape-in extensions just on my sides of my hair  before (for fullness) but this time I went for the whole shebang! The first pic is of my hair before (don’t mind the lovely kink from my hair being up in a clip), during and after. I had quite a blunt cut so we added just the tiniest bit of layering to the back so that it would blend better with the extensions.

And here it is curled. The first and second day I felt like I had a sign on my forehead that said, “I HAVE EXTENSIONS”! But so far everyone is impressed by not only how well they blend but how perfectly the color matches! For anyone interested, we used three boxes of hair and mixed two colors (butterscotch and cocoa twist). If you live locally, I HIGHLY recommend my hairdresser Alisa from Bombshell 101 in Encinitas. She’s not only one of my best friends of 20+ years, but the only person I trust with my hair!

    You look gorgeous! I have always wanted to try extensions – not for length but for fullness – because my hair has gotten so thin in the last year. May have to check these out!! 🙂

    I love it! It looks so natural! I seriously have though about extensions, but so fearful of what they might look like! I may have to conquer my fear!

    I just got the hotheads tape in extensions last week and absolutely love them. I had very thin hair and it is amazing to finally have long thick hair. Highly recommend them!!
