Location: Hershesons Blow Dry Bar,  London

 

I love discovering new beauty and lifestyle addresses all over the world. I am working on a new project about it but I can’t tell you more. Wait till you see, but you won’t be disappointed. Last week I was in London I had a very busy week and on top of that there was my father’s wedding this weekend. I first stopped at House of CB store to buy my dress, which I can’t wait to show you in one of my upcoming post. Then I experienced the Blow Dry Bar located in the Topshop store at Oxford Street. That’s why I love Topshop you can find the perfect outfit and they also have a beauty bar where you can make your nails make-up and hair. It’s quite simple you choose the style of brushing you want between Big + Brushed, Super Straight or Smooth Wavy. You have the choice between 15 hairstyles with different styles. The perfect solution to be ready to go out for dinner or a special occasion. Drying is usually done on dry hair but if you want to add a shampoo and washing your hair it ‘s possible as well. And if you don’t have enough volume or length no problem. They can add hair extensions to your hair. They are specialized for that they have a hair extensions store where you can buy clip in hair extensions. And if you are not interested in drying your hair, they also have a braid bar. It’s just amazing.

Here you can find my short guide to help you choose good quality hair extensions. I wear hair extensions since I was something like 15 years. During this 8 years, I had good but also bad experience about hair extensions. What I mean with bad experiences, is that I was so happy to have beautiful long hair with volume but my beautiful hair became dry, like the Barbie plastic hair. and I was very angry, because I spent, a lot of money for those bad hair. It’s not always easy to choose the right hair extensions, when you’re at the beauty store, and you need to choose between 100 different brands of hair extensions. Rule number one! Read the package label, because it means the identity of the hair. So now you can buy good hair extensions without having bad experiences. I’ll tell you what means the label, and talk about prices.

 

 

STEP 1 :

Touching and washing the the extensions is the best way to feel the quality.

If you are at the store and you see beautiful long silky hair. Ask to touch the hair before buying. The hair could be beautiful for the first impression but you need to be sure that the hair will stay like your own natural hair for the long term. It means knotless, and soft.. The best way to know if these are good hair extensions is washing  and dry them. Something impossible to do when you’re at the store. That is why you need to know more about the product and texture.

 

 

STEP 2

Human hair vs synthetic hair extensions

Never forget this. If you want beautiful hair, use 100% human hair. These are real hair, you can straighten, curling and color them, just like your own hair. With technological advances, synthetic hair has also become very good quality. But I advise you to don’t use any straightening iron or color on synthetic hair. This could damage them and the finish look will be unnatural. Synthetic hair is often used for the creation of updo hairstyles.

 

 

STEP 3

Where your hair extensions come from

There are generally five basic types of human hair, Chinese, Indonesian, Indian, European and Brazilian. The difference depends on the hair texture. But the new chemical technology used can change the hair texture like you want. For exemple you can find curly Chinese hair on the market. For a natural effect I advise you to use the texture that most closely looks like your own natural hair. When your hair is going to be blended with the hair extensions we won’t see the difference.

 

STEP4

Virgin hair vs Remy hair

Virgin hair refers to hair that is completely unprocessed, and intact. To qualify as virgin hair, it must meet rigorous standards including: not been permed, dyed, colored, bleached, and chemically processed in any way. This also means it comes from a single donor, and all the cuticles are intact, running in the same direction. Remy human hair consists of hair extensions made from virgin human hair of the highest quality grade that has been chemically treated dyed. Also, all hair strands must follow the same direction and be of the same length to ensure a high quality set free of tangling.

 

STEP 5

The price

If you buy your hair extensions for 10$/15€, it probably will be synthetic hair. Good hair extensions cost between 50$/65€ and up to 150$/175€, for 100 grams of hair. The price varies greatly by the length, and the origin of the hair. Personally I always buy 100% Remy human Chinese or Indian hair. They’re easier to straighten., and I can choose the color that I want. If you want natural black or very dark brown for example color 1B. I advise you to buy Virgin hair. I hope this guide will be you helpful.

One of the favorite women’s hairstyle.Volume and big sexy hair, typically Victoria Secret style.

 

 

 

Oh, I love that iconic hairstyle. In this video you will be able to redo this hairstyle by yourself. For more volume for those of you who have fine or short hair. You can use clip-in hair extensions it will bring volume and length to your hair. And don’t forget to use hairspray with a invisible effect for a natural feel and long-lasting hold.

 

 

This is probably the easiest hairstyle you can do. I wanted to do an easy hairstyle to save time in the morning because I’m most of the time in  the rush. But also to be comfortable all day. The ponytail is perfect for it. Of course there are different styles. And I love the low messy ponytail.
