Clip in Hair Extensions by Salon Confidential



I went to a Very.co.uk Bloggers event a little while ago, and as well as being treated to an acoustic set by the lovely Diana Vickers, we were given the opportunity to try out some clip in extensions by Salon Confidential.
To be honest, I hadn't actually heard of this brand before the event but I'm so grateful I was introduced to it, because these extensions are phenomenal! 

These extensions are available in a variety of shades in three styles - Silky Straight, Bouncy Curl & Volume Wave. I was under the impression that these were made from real hair because they feel and look so real, but they're actually synthetic! How very deceptive :o
The extensions hold their shape, even after shampooing (or if you get rained on), so the styling is already done for you, which is a good thing because heat styling will only melt these babies!

I was matched to a set of Volume Wave extensions in Dark Brown, despite my dip dye, and they blended with my real hair exceptionally well.

Because my hair is quite long anyway, the extensions don't add a lot of length, but they do give me a lot of volume, shine and a lovely shape.

Ta-Dah!

Every box of Salon Confidential extensions contains 12 individual 18 inch extensions, which clip in to the hair easily (tease your hair a little first for extra grip) and feel about as heavy as a set of professionally applied extensions. 
The wefts lay flat against your head, so there are no tell tale lumps to contend with, and the kit comes with a little booklet to tell you which extension goes where.
Salon Confidential don't only specialise in hair extensions - they do little make up kits too but I didn't try those out, so can't really comment, though they did look pretty nifty ;)

All in all, these extensions are a great, inexpensive alternative to professional extensions.
 If you want to try these out, they're available from very.co.uk for £45 :)

What do you think?

Thank you for reading :)

  1. These look great on you! I have some clip in extensions and I don't like them because they feel so heavy. I can't wear them for more than 15 minutes.
