Most people get hair extensions because they want MORE hair, not LESS. If your contemplating getting hair extensions one of your biggest fears is that they might damage your hair. I’m sure you’ve seen or read some form of horror story linked to hair extensions.
Hair extensions are a cosmetic service, and yes things can go wrong. Think about other cosmetic services: Breast implants, nose jobs, lipo, acrylic nails, injectables…….haven’t you heard at least one story of these procedures going horribly wrong?
Like most things in the world of beauty you get what you pay for and you should absolutely do your research to make sure your going to a licensed expert. In this short video I share a few of my thoughts on making sure your hair extension experience is not a damaging one.
Easihair recently gave me the opportunity to re-create looks from Betsy Johnson’s Spring 2012, and I had a blast doing it!
Easihair maker of Easilenghts tape in hair extensions has a huge presence at New York Fashion Week. I’m sure it’s no secret that most of the models need hair extensions in order to create the beautiful looks the stylists had in mind, stylist love using easilengths because of how easy they are to apply and how great they are to incorporate into a style. Peter Gray is a hair artist extrodinare and this fun and feminine look he dreamt up for Miss Betsy is one of my favorites!
Check out the video for an inside look on how the style is created:
I recently had the honor of working on a video production with Easihair, recreating looks from New York FashionWeek- Spring 2012. Easihair is a major hair player at New York Fashion Week. Some of the top stylists in the world are using easilenghts tape in hair extensions on their models in order to create hair that is worthy of such a big stage. The world is watching at New York Fashion week and the hair needs to be absolutely perfect.
Like most things in a fashion show, the hair is over the top! Most clothing styles on the runway are meant to be an exaggerated version of what one would wear on the street, and the hair is no exception.
In this video I recreated a look that was originally created by the great Peter Gray! Peter created this full-of-volume awesomeness for the Badgley Mischka Spring 2012 collection.Take a peek and learn how to do it yourself!
A few of my favorite features of the extensions are :
- They’re lightweight and virtually undetectable
- They’re easy to put in, and easy to take out. This method is one of the quickest I’ve ever seen.
- Easilengths are non-damaging. If taken care of properly Easilenghts are a great way to grow your hair out, or add extra volume and length to your own hair.
Most damage I see from hair extensions is from 1. Leaving them in too long or 2. Not taking care of them properly.
If your wearing Easilengths here’s a few basic things you should know about caring for them, so you can protect your investment and enjoy your beautiful hair!
A one piece extension system is a great way to create an instant hair style. You don’t have to worry about the placement of a multi piece system, and because a one piece extension covers most of your head blending is usually easier. This extensions system the 23″ wavy by hairdo has a beautiful soft wave which is very in right now. The extension is made with synthetic hair which makes it affordable, and also makes it virtually “weather proof” because synthetic hair doesn’t respond to the environment the way our own natural hair does.
Its great for creating up-do’s and Ponytails, and the perfect accessory for special occasions. Check out the video for more information and to see how it’s done:
EasiVolume by Easihair is a great way to give your hair some added volume and thickness. Easivolume attaches with pressure sensitive clips that are very secure. It’s 100% Human Hair so you can style it just like your own. The clip in extension comes in 10″, 14″ and 18″. I recommend choosing one that is closest to your current length and having it customized by a trained stylist to blend into your hair cut. Easivolume is great for adding extra hair to up-do’s and ponytails. It’s very easy to apply, takes just a few minutes. Check out this video to see how it’s done:
Having the option to style synthetic fiber the way we can style human hair gets me all warm and fuzzy on the inside, the only problem is: Well, it doesn’t really style just like human hair. When styling heat friendly synthetic fiber there is a couple of things you should know…
