I’m going to throw it out there: I love, love, love hair pieces and extensions. Chances are, if you’ve seen me in public, you’ve seen me with some sort of hair piece or extension. I love the way they can radically change your look, taking a bad hair day right into a good hair day, and keep your overall appearance fresh. Over the next few days, I’m going to show you the pieces that I simply cannot live without, and why you should invest in a few of your own.
Today, though, we’re talking about NuMe Envy Hair Extensions. Each pack of extensions comes with everything you need to instantly clip in longer hair. Here is what they looked like on me:
The clip in process is extremely simple. Section your hair in the back, starting at the bottom. Clip in the three clip pieces between each small section, and brush to blend. On the sides, NuMe has included two clip extensions which are applied the same way. To add more volume or to help with blending, there are two single clip extensions, which I used with a side part to help with blending.
As you can see in the photos above, they blend seamlessly. The trick throughout the day is to make sure that you run a light brush through your hair to keep everything mixed together. It also helps if you have long layers cut into your hair like I do – that way the gradual length isn’t quite so noticeable, although you could make it work even with the bluntest bob.
They will take some time to get used to, and your first couple of tries may be awkward and difficult, but like anything else, practice makes perfect. I personally wouldn’t give mine up for anything.
NuMe Envy Hair Extensions are available exclusively at NuMeStyle.com, and are $179.99. The shade I used was BK410, the darkest black they had.
