Hey you <3
End of January, Irresistible Me, an american brand from New York, contacted me and offered me to send me one of their set of hair extensions so I could try them out and write this review for you guys !
It sounded almost like a challenge to me and I had to accept !! First of all, because it’s an honour and a pleasure to be chosen by a brand to try and review their products and second because I never tried hair extensions in my life.
Why not ?
I personally have a LOT of hair. They give me a lot of volume and they also grow quite fast so I never looked or felt the need to wear extensions. I also hated how un-natural most of them looked… Especially the ones girls at my school used to wear … :’)
So when I looked at their products, searched a bit online, and found out they were real human hair, I knew it wouldn’t be looking cheap.
I went for the ‘Silky Golden Blonde’ in 22 inches. Reasons for colour and length choice are explained below.
What color should you get ?
The lady from Irresistible Me was also really helpful to help me pick the right color. My biggest fear.
There’s literally nothing worse than hair extensions not matching your natural hair color… This is also a factor that makes the whole thing cheap looking.
This youtube video was particularly helpful, in fact, all colors are displayed and easier to see than on the website in my opinion.
I’m naturally dark blonde/brunette at the roots and blonder on the ends (naturally and also because of an Ombré/balayage done at a salon) so I had absolutely no clue what color to get.
Here’s a picture of my own hair next to one of the extension ;
As you can see, the difference is barely noticeable which is honestly impressive.
With the help of the video, I figured out that the extensions are a mix of different shades of one color, which makes it blend easy to your natural color.
Here’s a closer look at my set and its color ;
Why this length ?
I have quite long hair already so I just wanted to emphasize it even more, thanks to this picture the lady sent me it was easy to see their different length choices. I figured 22 inch would be a good choice 🙂
The parcel and the trial
I was in shock on how fast the parcel arrived. In a 3-4 working days time it was home ! It came in a chic black box that you might already have seen on my instagram.
Inside, the hair are placed in a 2 plastic bags. One is the trial set (right) and one is the full set (left).
ATTENTION ! Only open this one to try if the color/length and quality matches your expectations.
If it does, you can open the second one (on the left ) which contains your full set of extensions.
I will not explain how to put them on in this article as I’m really not a pro, but it’s easy to find on YouTube.
I was personally really happy with the color and quality of the hair. I was definitely not expecting the color to match so naturally and the hair is really soft.
I’ll let you judge yourself on the esthetic aspect by seeing the following pictures ;
