People are never happy with their own. I think that's partly because celebrities create this false reality that hair can be perfect every day.
I'm well aware that mine isn't and I'm sure they are privy to countless blow dries and extensions to make their tresses look amazing everyday.
For many years I've toyed with the idea of extensions... It's an expensive habit and so had never felt comfortable or willing to commit to getting some. Instead I picked up some beauty works hair pieces and it's these that made me commit to having extensions. I had gotten to the point that I couldn't bear a selfie without the additional hair which had given me more confidence. But it want natural and they were synthetic and so with time and wear they become tatty. They are also not suitable for every day wear.
I googled every which kind of extension.. I googled places to have them.. What was recommended for my hair but I had never plucked up the courage to take my fine, thin head of hair in to a salon to have a consultation.
That was until I met Nicola while having my hair cut at Studio 15.
I mention this Salon a lot. And that's because it's friendly, approachable and for anyone with any insecurities you can feel completely at ease here.
Nicola has been doing Hair Extensions for over 5 years. So has a lot of experience.
We talked through what look we wanted. How many we would put in... And where.
It was more thickness that I wanted do I had them cut just an inch longer than my actual hair.
I had around 60 extensions applied - I went for the pre bonded option.
It's key to point out that Nicola only uses top quality human hair.
It is AAAA Remy Hair.
Now... Let's be clear here. I didn't have extensions to look like a mermaid.. Or Disney princess. I had them to make me feel better about myself. My hair was thin, putting it bluntly it was crap. I was finding myself getting fed up and just putting it up in a bobble as I wasn't happy with how it looked.
Nicola, and my hair extensions have made me feel completely different about my hair and myself. I now enjoy styling my hair... And wearing it down. The bonds are hardly noticeable and I'm constantly told how natural it looks.
Consultations for hair extensions with Nicola are free and are available at Studio 15. Prices vary and so a consultation is needed.
I had mine done in early July. I've not lost one extension as yet and it's now the middle of September.
I couldn't be more pleased. I am looking to move to Nano Rings next month when I have them refreshed but I've been happy with my bonds - don't get me wrong at the start it feels incredibly bizarre but after a few washes they feel like your own hair.
I urge anyone who feels like I did about their hair or even anyone looking for extensions in general to contact Nicola.
Here's a few pics of her work so you can see for yourself.
