Hair Extensions - Help!

Recommended Posts

The ones I saw were also in pieces and matched exactly to my hair colour, I was amazed at how much like my own hair they looked. I think I would use them again afterwards as well, they look like a lot of fun.

 

Cherie, all we have to do is figure out what to do with them!

Ug, I just wrote a really long detailed post and the forum froze up! So here I'm going to try again!

 

Sorry it's taken me so long to post, but I just uploaded all of my pics. I have shoulder-length hair and it's very thick. I purchased Raquel Welch extension for $250, and they are real hair so they can be colored, cut, etc. I wore them for about 8 hours that day, and had a slight headache by the end of the day, but tolerable. They are super simple to use, and I'll definitely be using them again after the wedding. I can put them in myself, and taking them out is a breeze. My stylist put them all over my head, from the temples and a bit lower. She didn't use the singles, but that's probably b/c I have so much hair already! Hope this helps!

 

Here's a pic of my normal hair:

Here's what the RW extensions look like in the package:

And out of the package, there are a lot more than this, but I just took a few out to show you. The silver are combs that snap into place.

I bought my extensions last night and had some fun with them today, here is a before and after picture, I'm really pleased with how they look. I went for my dress fitting and ended up buying a tiara that I had no intention of getting, thought I would wear flowers in my hair but fell in love with the tiara.

I'd use real hair if I were you. Taking the time to research and consulting with a stylist that is failure with using hair extensions and your type of hair texture would be the best advice I would give.

 

You pictures will endure a life time and you want to make sure you look your very best in them.

 

so take you time

I just noticed you picture with the hair extensions in...it added nice volume and looked natural. Remember to mix the extension throughout the hair and not just in the areas you feel is needed. It helps with it looking more natural and not so pieced in. Good choice in hairstyle. Cute tiara

 

I wish you a happy and beautiful wedding day

Mine are real hair, I took them with me to my hair stylist yesterday when I went for highlights and she said they were great and showed me how to put them in. When I got home I just played with the ones on the side, when I wear them on the wedding day the stylist will put them in for me, I just wanted to see what they would look like.

Karen - they look great!! And Jill, thanks for all the photos! I'm not sure if this is something I plan on doing. My hair is still a wee bit short (betweeen chin and shoulder length)... but we'll see. My stylist is going to play with it in January, and either it'll be long enough to work with, or I'll get an awesome cut and just get a really nice blowout for the big day.

Hi ladies,

I haven't been on this forum for a bit...sorry!

Well, I went and purchased some "real" hair from a salon. It is the POP kind in the lightest blonde available. I call it my "real, fake hair"! I have played around with it a little, and it looks kind of funny. My hair is poker straight...so my hair cuts off at the shoulder, and then drops off from there. I think you have to put some wave or curl in your hair and the extensions to make it more believable. That could be a problem for me, as my hair does not hold curl well. I'm not sure I'll be able to wear these again outside of the wedding! I think I'm going to make an appointment and have a hairdresser show me how to put them in properly. Has anyone else figured out the knack of making them look goodhuh.gif?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
