So. Long story short? (Well.. long hair short actually) About six months after Lilah was born I was convinced that cutting my hair was what I needed. 15 inches later I was devastated and I knew right then I was not going to be happy again until my hair grew out again. The only problem with that is, it takes me about six and a half years to grow my hair out.
I searched… I hunted… I looked and looked for something to make me love my hair again. That’s when I came across Irresistible Me hair extensions and I knew that my problem was solved. I am happy and my hair is growing so much faster than before. It is protected and undamaged because I can style the extensions for the majority of the time.
So today I wanted to show you a couple of my top favorite looks with my amazing extensions from this brand.
The extensions I am wearing are the Silky Touch Chocolate brown 24″ set. They are a dream!
*Thank you so much Irresistible Me for sponsoring this post. And remember, as always, the opinions expressed are solely mine.
First, of course, is all down. I have some tricks to make this work. I have really thick hair so making the extensions match and look natural is a skill that I had to learn.
I braid up the entire back half of my hair. Little row of French braids starting about 3 inches down from the crown. From my ears back and the top down. I hide it all. Then I pin the end of the braid back up so it’s hidden. It’s flat and completely able to be covered by the extensions. Then I just proceed to clip them in and blend them and style my hair. And just like that, I have long hair again!
***One important tip: make sure to hot style the hair before putting the extensions in. It smooth’s the follicles of the hair and makes blending them much easier. Then go ahead and put in the extensions.
My other look is this fun and super quick topknot. It’s perfect every time. I take my hair and put it in a little bun. THEN clip the extensions in a circle around the hairtie, as close as possible so they can be covered by the hair when I wrap it around. I twist the hair all together in the front of the bun (twisting towards the back of my head going under) then just twist and wrap. The takes about 5 bobby pins to hold into place and always looks so nice. I only use about ¼ of the hair on this one.
And that’s just how I roll!
So! I’m hoping you love these looks as much as I do!
As I mentioned, the extensions I am wearing are the Silky Touch Chocolate brown 24″ set and they are a perfect match.
