We know how wary one can be when considering clip-in hair extensions. You want them to look natural, but how are you supposed to make them discreet? We went to Riqua Hailes, owner of Just Extensions salon in Los Angeles, who explained the key to using clip-ins. She also shared three ways you can wear them without anyone knowing. You'll have longer, thicker hair in no time — and nobody will know your secret. On Kirbie: BCBG Max Azria dress
I have to confess that I've always had a bit of a girl crush on Alice Cullen's bobbed and flippy hairstyle in Twilight. Ashley Greene, however, the actress who plays the stylish, friendly vampire in the series, has been sporting a longer, less feathered layered bob in real life, and she sure has the chic look down pat. However, now that Eclipse is pretty much wrapping up, the actress is back to her long roots, as she debuted new extensions at the U2 concert in Pasadena yesterday, courtesy of Parlour on 3rd's Essly Powell, who worked with Ashley for nine hours to achieve this new look. Obviously we've seen Ashley in extensions before at the 2009 VMAs, but now it looks like they're here to stay. What do you think of this look? Were you loving her layered bob, or is the longer length a welcome change?
When I spoke with celebrity stylist Kristin Ess (she's the one getting all Betty Draper on the right) of LA's Warren-Tricomi salon about her work on Lauren Conrad's extensions for The Hills and the red carpet, she also very kindly agreed to answer all my burning questions about the mysterious world of these length-enhancing strands. I learned a lot, and I think you will, too. To see the first part of my fun, informative interview with Kristin, just keep reading
I got my hair cut a few months ago--- short. I used to have fairly long hair that I enjoyed, but unfortunately I get bored with my looks quite often. I used to dye my long hair a different color every few months, but I decided back in March that dyeing it just wasn't cutting it, and I wanted to do something drastic.
So, on impulse (like I do everything) I decided to go get it cut. My boyfriend fully supports me and really likes the look, but I HATE IT. He never hesitates to tell me how gorgeous he thinks I am, but I still feel unattractive. I've been growing it out, and while I think it's a cute cut, I miss my long hair and just don't feel as pretty as I used to.
I'm 5'3, weigh a normal 120 lbs and I have always felt fairly attractive until now. It has gotten past just missing my hair - I feel fat (I used to weigh 109-112 and am now 119-122) and I can't afford extensions. Are there any more tips you can give me to help me look and feel like my old self again? I feel ugly.
