It’s about time I’ve gotten around to writing up a post on my new (and may I say stunning) 18-inch hair extensions! For those who are long-term readers of my blog and have followed me for a while on Instagram as well, you might notice a sudden change in my hair – and that’s all do to with extensions!
About a month ago I decided I was missing my long-hair, after succumbing to the trend of the moment, the ‘lob’ haircut, and wanted luscious locks once again. I thought a great option for me would be to go for hair extensions, and so I found the Beauty & Melody salon in Marble Arch which is where I had them done. It couldn’t have been more perfect, as not only is the salon super gorgeous, the hair itself is of the highest quality!
When I looking for extensions as this was my first time having them done, I considered three factors and that is: good-quality, easy to apply, and non-damaging. Beauty & Melody offered tape-hair extensions made with 100% Russian hair, so it feels extremely soft and natural! I was in particular attracted to the tape extensions as they are so gentle on the hair, and also very easy to apply taking about an hour (excluding cut and blow-dry) to do a full-head of hair! The application itself only involves taking a very thin section of your own hair and sandwiching it in-between two stands of extensions. You can see how it was applied just below:
To blend the extensions in perfectly with my hair we color matched the shade of my own natural hair, and used two very similar colors blended together to form the perfect match. I was extremely impressed with the final hair, especially how natural it looks going from shoulder length bob to 18-inch length, you could never tell!
All in all, I have to say I’m an extension-convert, and I absolutely love how amazing Beauty & Melody made my hair look. After all, having good hair makes you feel all the more beautiful and confident!
I’ve also filmed a YouTube video talking through and showing the entire process, if you’re interested in watching as well!
