Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow | Best Hair Store Review

Follow

Hi Everyone!

Today's post is going to be dedicated to my first forray into the world of clip in extensions, if you remember waaaaayyyyyy back when you might recall I've tried out 3/4 hair pieces before (you can see the Annabelle's Wigs 3 Way Challenge and my Hot Hair 3/4 Wig 'Brianna' Review by clicking the links) but never have I tried clip in individual hair pieces before.

Till Now.

So I was contacted by Best Hair Store to try out their range of human hair extensions (which means you can use heat on them and dye them too) and after a look at their range, I decided I'd like to try their ombre range and opted for This 7 Piece Set to try, after sending over my address I was shocked to receive a text with a delivery date for that week, that's quick by usual PR standards, if there's one thing I love, it's quick delivery!

Now let me treat you to a picture of me, my natural hair and some serious blurring filter due to a horrible foundation testing gone wrong, but the point is, you can see my real hair:


Now I know, I know, blur filters should be used sparingly but believe me when I tell you that I looked like I had lizard skin (won't be using that foundation again) so needs must, but back to the hair.


The hair was a lot more blonde at the bottom than I had expected but I was still excited to get the pieces stuck into my hair, the set I chose was an 7 piece set so I had:

  • One 4 Clip Piece
  • Two 3 Clip Pieces
  • Two 2 Clip Pieces
  • Two 1 Clip Pieces
All in a 20 inch finish. I decided to try a straight hair look as my normal 'go-to' is straight hair, I know that my curling my hair with the extensions I would have probably been able to blend the hair better but I wanted to see how it really looked if you get me. 




Now as I've already said, I think the blonde in a little too blonde for me, I would have looked better if it was taken down a notch but at the same time, I kind of have a huge urge to go dye my hair blonder now because I actually really like the look.
I particularly like the look when I tied my hair up in a side pony tail:

This did make me miss the long hair I had chopped off for charity last year because my hair was almost as long as these extensions! You can see my post about Donating My Hair To The Little Princess Trust by clicking the link.

Overall, I really liked playing with this hair and I'm going to work more on trying out different looks, I might even try dying it a pinky shade to see what I think of pink hair! The quality of the hair is really nice, soft and silky and doesn't get tangled which was a huge difference for me because I'm used to playing with cheap, synthetic materials for Instagram looks so I could really feel the superior quality of these extensions, also, there was no shedding!

What are your thoughts? Have you tried any hair from Best Hair Store before?

  1. I love that the extensions have a natural ombre built into them! I've never seen that before! That's why I avoided purchasing extensions in the past because my hair has a bit of an ombre currently <3

  8. I don't really have tried extensions, but I really want to experience hair as long as that. Mine simply doesn't grow longer than it is right now. The ombre is a little much, but maybe it would blend in better with lighter hair.

  9. I love your look both with and without the extensions! I think for a more glamorous look, the extensions can definitely add a bit of drama. I like the ombre effect, and if I didn't already have long hair, I would've tried these too! :)

  14. I have to mention first that I just love the way you write. It always reads like a chat with a friend. ANYWAY, I've never personally tried clip in extensions (or extensions of any kind for that matter), but these look pretty nice! I think you blended them really well, and you should definitely try the pink. Colored hair is so much fun to have!

  20. I wear keratin bond hair extensions for about 5 months each year. Whilst I love the length and volume they're so much maintenance I could never have them all the time and am contemplating not bothering for a while. I would like to get some good clip in's for times when I do miss the long hair though. You look lovely!

  50. I love the ombre effect! Definitely a fab look on you, lovely. I definitely love it the most in a pony tail. I think girls who have super long hair prefer that hair style because it gets it all out of the way (and looks cute, let's be honest). Love your own hair length so much though. Very elegant & beautiful <3

  58. They look so natural! My hair is super thin and i've always thought about getting real hair extensions to try and make it look thicker - i've always been worried that it would look too artificial though. Serious praise for the hair donation. PLEASE DYE YOUR HAIR BLONDE AND BLOG ABOUT IT.
