Claire’s – Synthetic Clip-On Hair Extensions

Claire’s – Synthetic Clip-On Hair Extensions

A few weeks ago I was thinking about doing something drastically different with my hair as I was getting fed up with my shoulder length blonde hair, wishing I had never had it cut shorter last April and just fancying a real change colourwise. After several minutes (or perhaps that should be hours….) checking out different styles and colours on Pinterest I came to the conclusion that pink is the way to go… pink is the future! Anyway, having had several home-colouring nightmares when I was a teenager I didn’t want to rush into doing something myself and decided that I would try out something temporary whilst I was waiting for my next hair appointment to come around. So I noticed these Synthetic Clip-On Hair Extensions in Claire’s and thought I would try them out, and I’m very glad I did! Synthetic Clip-On Hair Extensions come in a pack of two and they are really easy to use. I love the fact that you can put them in and...

MUA – ‘Flair’ Lengthening Lashes

MUA – ‘Flair’ Lengthening Lashes

I had a party to go to last weekend so I decided it was a perfect opportunity to try out these Flair Lengthening Lashes from budget make-up brand MUA. I only wear false lashes for special occasions and usually wear the 20 Half Lash lashes from Mac (review of these coming soon) but I wanted to try out these budget alternatives to see if they are good value. I like the packaging of these MUA lashes, the box is fairly durable and you can clearly see the lashes inside. A small pot of eyelash glue is also included, although you can’t see this through the clear window. These Flair lashes have been created to give your lashes extra length, they are a full lash and they consist of several long lashes with shorter more feathery lashes interspersed inbetween. They give a fairly natural look, you won’t end up looking like a pantomime dame with these! I had to trim a tiny section off the end of each band as...

Sleep-In Rollers – Bun Ring Plait

Sleep-In Rollers – Bun Ring Plait

I was recently sent this Bun Ring Plait* from Sleep-In Rollers to try out. It is basically a synthetic plaited hair piece which can either be used as a headband or wrapped around a bun to give a decorative effect. Sleep-In Rollers specialise in soft velcro hair rollers which can be worn overnight without feeling uncomfortable, and they also do a variety of extras including this Bun Ring Plait, other hairpieces and faux ponytails plus haircare oils. Sleep-In Rollers are predicted to be the ‘next big thing’ and are gathering celebrity endorsements thick and fast. This Bun Ring Plait is available in 4 colours – black, brown, blonde and deep red. I have been wearing the blonde one, although it is a little bit too pale for me but it still gives a great effect (I might be better with the brown one). You basically scrape your hair back into a neat bun using a bun doughnut, either on the top of your head or lower down, and secure...
