Try’em Out Tuesdays – Hair Extensions

Have you ever had hair cutters remorse?? Ask anyone in my family..i am the most fickle person when it comes to my hair. Usually I will grow it out and vow to never cut it short again and then get tired of it and cut it short and then have cutters remorse and want it long again. This last time upon the hubs request and my being tired of my hair i cut it short again. If you remember I blogged about it during decision time. It looks fine, it’s not like i dislike it but I miss my long hair BADLY! I am growing it out again but unlike when you cut it, it takes a lot longer to grow back out!

So what do i do in the mean time?? I have heard a lot about the new trend of clip-on extensions. Well that could be a solution :) I had never really looked at extensions before because I thought they were going to be too pricey.

Thank goodness for Google!

I googled “clip-on extensions” and found an amazing and decent priced website selling just that! They have a bunch of different types of brands, lengths, volumes, and types. One of the popular brands is the Jessica Simpson brand but I actually found better reviews on the POP brand. I decided to choose the synthetic because i read positive reviews and it is a lot cheaper. I didn’t want to invest a lot of money on something I wasn’t sure would work.

Why are clip-in extensions a good choice according to hairextensions.com:

Clip-In hair extensions are becoming the most popular choice of hair extension systems in America thanks to Hollywood starlets such as Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, Megan Fox,

Eva Longoria and Beyonce (just to name a few). Clip-in hair extensions are the easiest and safest way to add length, volume, or color without causing damage to your own hair. They come in a multitude of colors and lengths and are offered in 100% human hair, heat resistant and non-heat resistant synthetic fibers. There

are many different clip-in extension systems available ranging from one piece to multi-piece systems.

Clip-in hair extensions provide the perfect alternative to permanent hair extensions.

I debated for days before i ordered them but then i figured that if i didn’t like it I was  only out about $40. I was so excited the day it came and i tried it right away :) They looked pretty good and they didn’t hurt my head. The next day I curled my hair so that it would blend it more and here is what it looked like:

Have any of you tired clip in extensions before??


  1. The extensions look great! Actually, I am amazed at how natural they look! Glad you found a way to enjoy long hair again when you want it!

  2. i own clip in extensions too and i LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!! they are so easy...it's like snap and go.

    i never miss my long hair because when i do...snap and go!

  3. I want one now!
    Its Name that photo time. Its a cool prize this week!

    and seriously I could of sworn this whole time I was a follower...sorry I will correct that mistake!

  4. I've used extensions from Sally's for weddings before and I loved them! I think you look uber cute in the pics!

  5. Wow your extensions look amazing sweet girl! Makes me want to try them even though I have long hair...but if I wanted it even longer! :)

  6. I think those are super cute. I think I need some.

  7. Oh my goodness, they look great! And only forty dollars? That's great! I might have to try some myself. I haven't had long hair since I was twelve, because I can't stand trying to grow it out - even though I'd like to try long hair again. I think I need to look at that website - thanks for the tip!

  8. Never used extensions, but they look great! I must say though that I LOVE your hair now, but I haven't seen the before. I always cut my hair short then grow it, get tired of it long and cut it again, and miss it when it's gone. Ah well, the grass is always greener I guess.

  9. Those look great, and they match your color really well! I've always wanted to try clip-in extensions but I was always a little unsure. I may have to go ahead and get some - for $40 it's worth the experiment!

  10. Remember when you were four and had that long gorgeous curly hair? (probly right before you chopped it off in preschool...wow this hair thing goes way back...) That's what you look like cept the grownup version! I love it! Love you!
