I'm feeling a bit uninspired by my hair at the moment. My natural colour is a sort of mousy-brown colour which I've always dyed dark brown until the summer when i took the plunge and took my first steps towards becoming a blonde. Since then I've just been getting steadily more and more blonde. In it's current state it's a little bit of a 'blockish yellow' colour - not quite the look I was after! My ideal hair would be long, messy/beachy multi-tonal blonde hair a la Mary Kate Olsen. I'm pretty wary of going too blonde, as it's obviously not my natural colour and would probably wash me out! (Although I was blonde as a child so who knows?!)
I've been wearing clip-in hair extensions for around a year now. Since my hair is naturally pretty flat and a boring "below the shoulder/above the boobs" length, I love the effect extensions give me (i.e completely transformed voluminous long hair) that I would never be able to achieve without the added help! My usual hair extension brand of choice is headkandy. I've had two sets of full head hair extensions from them in the past, my first was in the shade iced coffee and the second was in butterscotch highlights - both sets were length 16-18 inches. I absolutely loved my headkandy extensions, they were amazing quality and looked really natural on. However, my butterscotch highlights extensions are now too dark for my hair, and I have the insane desire to have really long mermaid-style hair!
I decided to try bobby glam extensions after finding them on facebook. I went to the website and saw they had a sale on, so decided to splash out on some 20-22 inches double wefted extenstions in the colour manhatten hightlights. I believe (I may be wrong) that headkandy and bobby glam are part of the same company - they have the same shades but bobby glam stock more hair accessories such as fake pony tails - therefore they should be the same amazing quality as hk extensions. You get less wefts with bobby glam (7 whereas with hk you get 10) but I don't mind as I never use them all anyway! Bobby glam let you choose from double, tripple or quad wefted extensions. With Headkandy extensions they include one 'quad weft' in their full head sets which really helps to add thickness to your hair, but I decided to just go for double wefted bobby glam ones, as they will already be double the thickness of normal extensions!
I'm really looking forward to getting my new extensions, from the website they look like they will be a really nice multi-tonal warm blonde. Hopefully my hair will look something like the pictures above!
