Be Scene & Not Heard.

I wasn't in the mood for deciding what to wear for a night out last week, so decided just to dress up a jeans + tee combo. I chose my favourite charity-shop heeled pumps and then thought about doing something with my hair. My mind immediately went to one of my bandanas, but it just didn't look right in my hair, so I turned to my hair extensions to make it work.

I know some people don't like extensions and think they're tacky or whatever, but I really love having mine in. I've only worn them three times since I bought them 4 months ago (they're a hassle, plus I dyed my hair darker a few months back so they didn't match for a while) and think for a night out they're a really fun addition. Kind of like wearing an extravagant hat, rather than a literal "extension' of one's own hair!

I think I will try and wear them more often over the next few months, whilst my hair colour matches them and before I get the inevitable urge to dye my hair again!

  1. i was thinking about getting some extensions so i would have looooads of ringlets! maybe when the next student loan instalment comes in!

    i seriously love yours! they look great with your fringe and the headband, very natural. i think they're only bad when used by barbie blonde people who have very choppy hair and a few yellow strands at the back, eek!

  3. i wish i could get extensions sometimes without looking like a total tit (which i would). then i could wear beanie hats again!
    i like the bandana, and the whole rich girl goes to a rock concert projection, very nice.

  4. I use extensions sometimes and I love them - after a haircut I was missing my long hair loads until I bought some. Yours definitely don't look tacky! I think the length really suits you and I love the way you've styled them!

  6. The extensions look really good, I would never have guessed they weren't your real hair! I have long hair and need to get loads chopped off as it's in baaad condition. Haven't been looking forward to losing the length but now I'm thinking the possibility of extensions might ease the pain....
