The cover of Vogue’s September issue stated, “Hair is the new makeup.” Then, I dropped everything to go buy myself some extensions.
It didn’t happen exactly that way, but the Vogue article totally was the tipping point. I’ve been chatting with my hair stylist Sheenon Olson for months about either getting Hot Heads extensions or Remy Indian Virgin hair clip ins. I ended up going with the clip-in’s because Sheenon’s Hot Heads he brought with him from LA weren’t the perfect blonde match for my locks. I’m still thinking about getting Hot Heads, but this is a good trial period.
I honestly feel like I am learning to do my hair properly for the first time. I’ve always been super low maintenance when it comes to my hair. Seriously, I don’t even blow dry it. Now, I’m working a curling iron and sewing weave. A total transformation, I assure you.
I got a lesson from Sheenon on blow-drying and how to sew the clips onto the hair – the rest was all me! I’m pleasantly surprised with how awesome it turned out. I do need to get a hair straighter though. I had one before, but it died in Sweden. I haven’t used one since. (you’ve probably noticed)
I should have taken more photos of the process; but pop over to this link and view the type of hair I used, where I bought it and a pic from me in action sewing. xx
