How to get instantly long hair

This article is a lesson in “never say never”. Let’s start with the obvious – I have super long hair in these photos and we all know my normal hair is pretty short. 

Well guys, it’s not magic – it’s just hair extensions! And really great hair extensions if I can say so myself. And to think I have always dismissed them before – I knew hair extensions existed but was never really all that interested. Just like Jon Snow – I didn’t know anything.:)))

 
Instead, I was blaming my damn genes for not being able to provide Blake Lively or Selena Gomez type hair. I now realize I was delusional – there’s no way in hell that’s their natural hair. Now that my eyes have been opened, I could bet my life all those celebrities with heavenly hair wear extensions all the time. And my genes are perfectly fine, thank you very much! 

And since I got the rant out of the way, let me tell you a few things about all this hair on my head.:))) The extensions are Irresistible Me in Silky Medium Brown (#4), they are 20 inches long and the weight is 200 grams. They arrived very fast for an overseas order (the processing stage is 3 to 5 business days and the shipping another 2-4 days). They ship worldwide and the shipping is free for orders over $150 (otherwise you’ll have to pay $10 that are well-worthed since they use FedEx and the extensions will be delivered to your door). 

They are clip-ins and perfect for someone like me who doesn’t wear extensions on daily basis and just wants to put them on occasions. They have these little, sturdy clips that can be added in your hair in a matter of minutes (they are equally as easy to take off). They come in 10 wefts of different sizes (1 piece of 4 clips (8"/20cm), 2 pieces of 3 clips (6"/15cm), 5 pieces of 2 clips (4"/10cm) and 2 pieces of 1 clip (1.5cm) and there’s so much hair you can actually leave a few pieces out and only use part of them. The big weft is epic and has so much hair it can be used by itself and it’s going to look great. 


This is me before adding the hair extensions and thinking about how good I was going to look! :)

The best part is the hair itself – super soft, shiny and silky - so much so I have this crazy compulsion of touching it constantly. Fortunately, the shedding is minimal so that’s a problem just reported to my mental health. Being 100% human Remy hair, the Irresistible Me hair extensions can be cut, colored and styled without any problem as long as you take the same precautions you would with your own hair. Right here, I curled them because I wanted them to blend in perfectly. The ultimate goal was to trick everybody and make them believe I have breathtaking hair all on my own. And I think I did! The day I wore them everybody was looking at me with envy and/or lust!:)))))) I’m telling you, these are better than a boob job…a lot cheaper too (or so I heard:)))

All the hair inspired me to wear this insane ruffled maxi skirt with a salsa vibe. I might have tried a few dance poses as well, but I decided to only share those via Facebook where people are expected to be crazy and ridiculous. I couldn’t help myself and I threw on my Borealy necklace as well – it’s so pretty, it seemed like the necessary topping on the cake (and by cake I mean myself :)).

Since I know an unsettling amount of things about extension from my sister, I feel it’s my patriotic duty to make an even more detailed review about my Irresistible Me hair extensions (I have a second blonde set that I wear as highlights or instant ombre depending on the mood) and show you how to put them in! Willing or not, you will be educated!:):):):)

Nici nu stiu de unde sa incep, asa ca o sa zic o chestie super evidenta – am parul lung si ieri era de destul de scurt! Nu-i o minune – sunt doar extensii!!! Rar am fost atat de incantata de un lucru pe care il incerc pentru prima oara! Extensiile sunt o gaselinta de a carei existenta stiam, dar nu eram neaparat interesata. Le asociam cu aspectul artificial al tipelor care fac din solar, unghii lungi, silicon si botox un ritual zilnic. Dar zau ca m-am inselat! 

Acum imi dau seama ca majoritatea celebritatilor cu par superb pe care le invidiam din acest motiv (Blake Lively, Selena Gomez, Rhianna) au mereu extensii in par. Si cand ma gandesc de cate ori mi-am blamat genele ca nu se ridica la inaltimea asteptarilor mele legate de par si nu numai!!! Cu siguranta exista o multime de extensii care arata ieftin si nenatural, dar acestea din capul meu sunt 100% naturale si arata grozav. Sunt sigura ca cei care nu ma cunosc si nu stiu lungimea reala a parului meu, nu si-ar da seama ca am trisat.


The before and after pictures from behind (well, that sounds a bit dirty but you get the gist!)

Extensiile sunt de la Irresistible Me (gama Silky Touch), au 20 de inches (50.8 cm) si 200 de grame. Am ales culoarea Medium Brown si bine am facut pentru ca se potriveste aproape perfect cu nuanta mea naturala. Un alt detaliu important – sunt clip-ins - adica se ataseaza cu clipsuri micute in par si pot fi puse si scoase super rapid (chiar si eu le-am pus in aproximativ 5 minute). Mai mult dureaza ondulatul care mie mi se pare ca ajuta enorm cu partea de “camuflare” – asa chiar nu o sa stie nimeni ca podoaba capilara este doar partial a ta. Parul meu este subtire si capricios, dar foarte moale si stralucitor si extensiile acestea sunt chiar si mai matasoase si mai frumoase decat ma asteptam (egaleaza si chiar intrec aspectul sanatos al parului din dotare). Am tendinta sa le ating tot timpul si din fericire, nu cade parul din ele, altfel chiar ar fi o problema.

Fiind 100% naturale, pot fi tratate exact ca parul meu: le pot spala, tunde, vopsi, ondula, indrepta cu placa si asa mai departe. Fiecare set vine cu 10 bucati de diferite marimi: o bucata epica cu 4 clipuri de 8 inches (20 cm) si mai mult par decat am eu in tot capul, doua bucati cu 3 clipsuri de 6 inches (15cm), 5 bucati de 2 clipsuri de 4 inches (10 cm) si doua bucati de 1 clip de 1.5 inches (aproximativ 4 cm). Bucata mare este atat de grozava incat poate fi folosita si singura in zilele in care ma grabesc. Trimit colete in toata lumea (transportul este $10 sau gratis pentru comenzile peste $150) si spre deosebire de alte comenzi de peste ocean, acesta a ajuns super rapid si direct la usa cu Fedex (procesarea dureaza 3-5 zile si transportul alte 2-4 zile). Nu am platiti nici taxe vamale in caz ca va intrebati.


Daca va plac, am un cupon permanent de 10% pentru orice comanda pe Irresistible Me, este suficient sa folositi cuponul IrresistibleAlice la checkout in sectiunea promo code si veti primi reducerea!




Sincer, sunt obsedata de ele! Da, am ajuns si acolo – pot spune cu mana pe inima ca sunt obsedata de extensii! Daca va intereseaza o sa fac un review amanuntit si un tutorial in care sa va arat cum se pun! Datorita Sarei stiu nefiresc de multe despre acest subiect si ar fi pacat sa las nefolosita atata intelepciune – asa ca vrand, nevrand o sa va informez.

Parul lung m-a inspirat sa port pentru prima oara aceasta fusta maxi cu volane careia ii tot dadeam tarcoale de un an, dar fara mare succes. Ma tot gandeam cu ce sa o port ca sa evit sa arat ca o dansatoare de salsa putin nebuna. Cu toate precautiile am avut niste tentative de dans printre blocuri, dar am pus dovada doar pe Facebook unde este normal si asteptat sa fi putin ridicol:). Nu putea sa lipseasca colierul Borealy pe care il port atat de des incat ati putea crede ca-i singurul meu colier! :)

So what do you think? How do you like me best - with shorter or longer hair?

 I’m wearing:
hair extensions / extensii - Irresistible Me
  skirt / fusta - Asos
crop top/ top scurt - random brand (very similar here)
leather jacket / geaca piele - random brand
 necklace/ colier - Borealy

Este fenomenala fusta, iar tu ai stilizat-o intr-un mare fel!

Trebie sa incerc si eu extensiile, neaparat!!

Kizzy Von Doll said...

Looks really amazing on you, stunning xx

Sonia De Macedo said...

They look so amazing on you, and so real too. I have pretty long hair already so I only use extensions to add volume but now I'm thinking maybe I should get the chop because I can always just add extensions!

Extensiile arată foarte natural în combinaţie cu părul tău. Chiar aş putea spune că arată excelent faţă de fotografia de pe site.
Eu am părul destul de bogat de la mama natură şi nu m-a tentat vreodată să mă complic cu extensiile. Cred că sunt o soluţie foarte bună pentru fetele cu păr cu probleme (poate mă înşel).

Alice in vintageland said...

@Taipei Style - thank you!

@fashion doctor - multumesc mult!

@ilda76 - multumesc, esti foarte draguta si m-a inveselit tare ca m-ai comparat cu o statuie greceasca, mereu am crezut ca Bucuretsiul ar beneficia de o statuie cu mine in marime naturala - ma gandesc ca ar arata super la fantani la Unirii!:)))))

Alice in vintageland said...

@Ileana - thank you, the extensions are amazing and I can't even tell you how much I like them.

@The Hearabouts - Hey,Sandra! I always wanted to beat that bitch (Ileana Cosanzeana)at her own game!:))) Fusta am ocolit-o luni de zile, dar acum imi dau seama ca-i facuta pt crop tops!

Alice in vintageland said...

@Daniela Macsim - multumesc mult! Chiar iti recomand extensiile, daca-s de buna calitate vor arata amazing si fac minuni atat pt lungime, cat si pe volum!

@Kizzy Von Doll - thank you so much! (blush)

Alice in vintageland said...

@Sonia De Macedo -they do wonders for volume, my hair is not super thick so the feeling that you have a lot of hair is wonderful. I think they are super convenient especially during summer when natural long hair can get uncomfortable (but the extensions you can always get out).

Alice in vintageland said...

ZADIN - pozele macro cu extensiile sunt facute tot de mine, din pacate nu am surprins cat de frumoas este parul cu adevarat(este destul de greu sa faci niste bucati de par sa arate artistic), dar cred ca puse in par, se vad mai bine (cum zici si tu. Majoritatea fetelor care poarta extensii, fie vor mai mult volum, fie un par mai lung, fie ambele si extensiile clipin mi se par o metoda simpla si versatila to get that. Probabil ca exista si o nisa de persoane care le poarta de nevoie! Tu esti clar norocoasa ca ai parul des! <3

Claudia said...

Wow! Extensiile arata atat de natural. Incredibil! Si tinuta ta e foarte chic. Imi place fusta ;-)

Wow, sunt de-a dreptul impresionata de cat de bine se amesteca cu parul tau, daca nu stiam ca ai parul scurt nu mi-as fi dat seama ca sunt extensii :D Tinuta e absolut superba, de-abia astept sa-mi port si eu crop top-urile :D :*

Georgiana Brindusoiu said...

As putea sa jur ca e parul tau, culoarea e identica. Eu am parul ondulat si nu ma complic cu extensii, poate si din comoditate. Fusta imi place la nebunie!

Katie Aman said...

The extensions look stunning on you! My hair is too long for extensions, but I know a lot of girls love them. I am in love with your skirt though! What a beautiful design with floor length ruffles. You styled it so wonderfully too!

bydee-make-up said...

Wow! Arata atat de natural! Arata excelnt!
Acum m-ar tenta si pe mine sa le incerc. :)

good tip. I love how your hair looks. You statement necklace is gorgeous! Lovely post my dear!:)

ay caramba said...

Extensiile si tinuta arata minunat! Insa mare grija la extensii. Purtate des si timp indelungat determina ceea ce se cheama alopecie de tractiune. Adica incepe sa cada parul in zonele in care au fost prinse extensiile. Ele chiar daca par foarte usoare creaza presiune asupra firelor de par care se slabesc si incep sa cada. Problema apare in general la persoanele cu par subtire.Sunt hair stilist si am vazut foarte multe astfel de cazuri. Insa purtarea lor ocazionala este chiar ok, mai ales cand arata atat de bine!

Alice in vintageland said...

@ay caramba - :)Chair nu este cazul la mine, le port destul de rar, de obicei in weekend sau pentru o ocazie mai speciala!
