I was really excited to put together todays post for y'all, because I finally get to share my new hair extensions c/o Irresistible MeI have always wanted to try out hair extensions that weren’t permanent for a little fun. When I was a kid, I had hair down to my bum and nowadays... well, it would just never grow that long anymore. Irresistible Me let me select what length, thickness and color I wanted my hair extensions to be.... I selected the Royal Remy extensions, which comes from just one donor with virgin unprocessed hair. They then color it (I chose Royal Light Brown #6) and add a unique treatment to it to make it extra silky and durable. I watched this video to see how to clip the hair extensions into my hair and it was SO easy! The clips are high-end and really place the pieces firmly in your hair. For the length, I chose 20", I wanted my hair to be longer!

The hair came in this cute little black box that says Irresistible you! on it.

The hair on the left is a sample that lets you match the color to your natural color before you open the entire package of hair on the left.

Here is what it looked like once I took it out of the package.

I also recently won this maroon hat from The Mint Julep and isn't it TOO cute for the fall? I had to share it today, too. :)









So, what were my thoughts on the hair extensions? After I got over the thought of having someone elses hair clipped into my hair... I was quite pleased! It REALLY made my hair thick and long... I was sort of sad when I took the clips out, because my hair looked so good with them in! I get highlights and lo-lights in my hair every other month, so I was worried about finding a color that would match my own. I went with the Light Brown (#6), because I consider my hair to be a light brown. The color really matched well and the highlights in my hair just gave the extensions some natural highlights. I did some research online and the length I chose (20") is popular in that it doesn't get 'too heavy'. I enjoyed having long hair, but the clips were still comfortable in and they didn't hurt or feel heavy at all.

Will I wear the hair extensions again? You bet! I haven't even tried curling them or braiding them yet, but I will! I will probably save them for a special night out with the husband (he told me he likes them and doesn't find them weird at all) or if I go out with my friends. It is going to be so fun to change up my look a little every now and then. What is great is you can wash the extensions, too.
