Today I will be sharing my Irresistible Me Hair Extensions review. The company, which specializes in 100% natural Remy clip-in hair extensions, hair accessories and hair tools, reached out to me a couple weeks ago asking if I’d like to try out their hair extensions. Even though I had long hair at the time they contacted me (almost as long as their extensions), I had been wanting to cut it short for some time but had a few hesitations. First a little background on my hair – I’ve had it long for as long as I can remember and it’s relatively thick. For years, this long, thick hair was one of my favorite and most complimented features and my safety blanket – I was super self conscious about having a rounder face and felt the long hair gave it the illusion of looking leaner. Today, I’m not quite as self conscious, but I was afraid that once I cut my hair, I would realize the short hair didn’t suit me and that I also would miss having my long locks. To calm these fears, I had previously looked into hair extensions but got overwhelmed and gave up.
Enter Irresistible Me. When they contacted me, I was at the point where I was so unhappy with how damaged my hair had become, I was ready to just throw caution to the wind, and get it cut. Once so soft, my hair now felt dry and course no matter what hair masks and conditioning treatments I did and full of split ends (most likely the result of rarely cutting or trimming it to keep its length). What my hair needed was a fresh new cut to give it a fresh new start. With the assurance of having these hair extensions as a backup in a worst case scenario, I cut off over 12 inches of hair and got myself a nice little lob haircut. Luckily, I ended up loving the haircut but it does feel super strange not having long hair anymore.
Fortunately, with these super easy to clip-in hair extensions, I can have the best of both worlds anytime I want!
In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with glamorous loose waves, sleek long hair, or a sassy high ponytail on the red carpet, and while there were plenty of these looks at the awards event, two other hair trends were quite prominent and the talk of the town at the Golden Globes.
First, were the headbands worn by not one, not two, but three attendees…and three’s a trend, right? Especially when the wearees include Charlize Theron and Michelle Williams. These controversial hair pieces sparked debate across the Internet. Most people either loved them or hate them. I, myself, am a fan, although I believe they work better for some outfits than others. Charlize and Busy Phillips’ headbands were nice additions to their outfits, but I think Michelle could have done without it.
Second, which really aren’t all that uncommon on the red carpet, were the multitude of romantic, messy chignons. Charlize, always a fashion-forward trendsetter, actually wore both a chignon and a headband – and pulled it off effortlessly! Stars also on the chignon train were Claire Danes, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Kate Winslet, and Jessica Alba.
