I got red highlights! :P

I was feeling a bit rebellious so I got red highlights in my hair...

What do you think? :p

My mom hates it whenever I make my hair any crazy bright color but I really like the look of it. I always want to keep my mom happy but I also like to express myself and so I thought that wearing clip-in hair extensions is a neat way to make us both happy.
The clip-in extensions are from sweet blogger buddy, Lianne's (Sassy J'adore Blog) online store called, J'adore Lovely Boutique. She sells different kinds of hair extensions in her store so you should check it out if you are interested.

I'm just wearing two clip-in extensions in the pictures but each pack of highlight extensions comes with 6 pieces.

Hair extension packaging (back)
6 Clip-in highlight extensions secured together
"Prepare to be Glamourized" :P
Close view of the snap clip
I just parted my hair in the area I wanted to clip my hair extensions in. You can tease the area you want to clip your hair extension if you want to make sure they don't fall out. I did not tease my hair because these clips are pretty tight enough and I have no problem with the clips sliding off my hair.
Hook and snap-clip onto hair!
And have fun! :)
PROS:
-You can have different colored highlights in your hair without damaging/dying your own hair.
-Clip is very secure (won't slide off your hair)
-It is human hair so you can treat it the same like you do with your real hair (curl, straighten, style, wash, etc).
-Very bright red color
-Long length; allows enough hair to trim if necessary (usually the ones you buy at ex. Hot Topic are not very long and so it doesn't really match the length of my real hair)
-Looks real
-Comes in a variety of colors
-easy to remove and clip in on your own without damaging hair
-Good price (especially compared to buying it at the mall)


CONS:
-It is human hair (some people might get scared or grossed out by this)
-Has a strong smell when you first open the package (maybe can be fixed by washing it gently)
-May need to trim for people with shorter hair (although I think this is not so much of a con)

I wanted to thank Lianne for being so kind to give me these awesome pack of clip-in extensions! :) I probably should have shown these better by straightening my hair a bit more before putting them on so that they could blend in better. :P
I definitely have a lot of fun wearing these and I like them so much I have another pack of pink clip-in hair extensions that I bought from Lianne. I'll have to show you guys some other time. :)


Just wanted to mention that I was not paid or compensated in any way to publish this post.
I'm not affiliated with the company.
Lianne sent me a pack of highlight hair extensions as a gift and I paid for the other pack of highlight extensions I received from her.

Thanks again hun! I added the colours digitally, though i have been working on some manual ones too. I do find using photoshop or any other picture editing program a lot easier, as blending and removing colours is easier! x

Kay, you look great! Since you have such a beautiful face and perfect make up, you can do almost anything with your hair and still look good. Enjoying your photos. You're awesome :)

I love it! I've been wanting some colored extensions since I'm taking a very long break from dyeing my hair; I just haven't decided what color I want yet. Love your eye makeup here too, you look great.

Omg the hair extensions look great on you! :D

At first when I saw the picture I was almost in shock thinking you'd actually dye your hair red!! hahah. But of course, momma would be upset. So what a great alternative ! ^__^

Mina said...

I would do this on my 6 years girl, I think she would love it!!!

And you are really beautiful!!!

Hi Kay! =)

OMG!! You look fierce and I LUV the whole look from your sexy makeup to the hairstyle and with the red highlights.

This post made my day. =D

You're always so sweet. We should meet up sometime. I hope I don't sound like a stalker or anything. It would be nice to meet someone that I met on blogger. =)


I actually didn't go to Napa for my bday. I kept it casual and my friends took me out for lunch and dinner. Getting everyone together is so hard these days because of everythings schedule and all. However, I will be going to Napa in Nov I think for my grandparents anniversary.

Thanks for this AWESOME post!

Red highlights look superb to the teenagers. Hair extensions look great when used on some special occasion or even casually. But these require an extraordinary care. Only buying this product is not enough, rather you need shampoo, conditioner and an appropriate place where they can later get dry. Custom hair packaging boxes are particularly designed in a way that can preserve your hair extensions for a longer period without getting them damaged in any way.
