I've been missing my clip in extensions and wigs lately too.
Couture Hair is such a fun accessory!
Speaking of fun, have you guys seen this?!
Halo Couture Hair Extenstions
We loved this idea. The first photo of Aurora there with her mouth open is her watching these videos! She thinks it's the coolest.
Naturally, we set out to Do It Yourself. There are loads of Youtube DIY instruction videos. We watched several and made some adjustments to make it comfy for short haired my teen.
Here's the photo breakdown:
1. Just get ya some hair.
2. Sew or glue it together. I sewed it because I didn't want to buy glue when sewing it seemed stronger anyway.
3. Sew in your bead elastic, fishing line or whatever you are using for the clear part. We used beading/bracelet elastic because we already had it. Also, the give is comfortable.
4.-5. Then you see my hair length and me with the "flip-in" styled. I need to learn more about styling hair.. back to youtube later!
1. Kiddo loving how fast, easy and fun "flip in hair extentions" look.
2. We both have hair that is shorter than the recommended length for this kind of extention. That said, I think it looks pretty cool! She wouldn't let me style it or trim it so that it looked more blended yet. She is way too busy playing with it!!
It took me about 40 mins to make both of them. That includes me fussing with the sewing machine and adjusting to fit! Not too shabby.
Since we already had the string and I sewed instead of buying glue, the total cost of this was just the hair we chose. Not bad!!
So, go play with some hair! I gotta learn how to use a curling iron properly now. ;)
