Hair extensions review: HELLO!’s Parenting Editor and mum of two went for a new look with glam long extensions – find out more
Around a month ago, I was chatting to a colleague and noticed she’d had her long hair cut to shoulder length. “I like your new haircut,” I told her, to which she replied: “Oh no, I haven’t had it cut; I’ve had my extensions taken out.”
I couldn’t believe it – her hair had looked so natural and not once did I think it was hair extensions. I was genuinely amazed. I told her I would love longer, thicker hair, like I had back in my twenties.
WATCH: 100 years of royal hairstyles
As a 44-year-old mum of two, my shoulder-length hair has got much finer in recent years and grows so annoyingly slowly. The thought of getting glamorous extensions was seriously appealing. Realistically, I’d probably never have gorgeous long, flowing hair again and that made me a little sad.
“You should do it!” she encouraged me. “I loved mine and felt like a total princess”. Yes, she is much younger than me, but why shouldn’t extensions be for all ages?
I had so many questions… did the extensions hurt? (no). Is it real hair? (yes). How long can you keep them in for? (two or three months before the bonds need changing and the hair lasts around a year).
I went home and told my nine-year-old daughter Zara about my idea. Her excitement was off the charts. Her wise words were incredibly cute: ‘I think you should go for it mummy; you only live once. YOLO!’
I mean, how could I not with those go-getting words from a child? I wanted to show her that you can do anything at any age.
