There were a few exciting occasions coming up that I felt I needed a change of hair look. I took a long break from extensions before going back to them in November, last year. I used to get them all the time! So much, that I didn’t feel as confident without them nor did I want to go anywhere eventful without having on extensions. Overtime, not only did my fine hair demand the break, but I also wanted to learn to embrace my natural hair. And I did. I took about 5 years off, aside from wearing clips ons here and there.
I really feel those years I took off, I learned to love and embrace my own hair. My hair also got strong and healthy. Fast forward to now, I was ready for a change. Plus, I missed having Shakira hair! My real hair is on the fine side and the length is currently a little below my shoulders. It has been taking a little longer than usual for it to grow long, which is why I missed having the long length. I was also getting over clip ons. The timing was right and was ready to put extensions on again!
In November I tested out the tape ins, which I liked! I wanted to have long hair for my birthday. The only downside was that they didn’t last very long, maybe 6 weeks. I wanted to try another method. One day I was browsing IG and I came across Hairdreams. Their page made me fall all over again with hair extensions! Their quality of hair, work, and knowledge was obvious. I also have heard amazing things about them through hair stylists. All their beautiful hair content was calling my name and had me dreaming about them for weeks until I decided to connect with them. Originally, I wanted to get them for my wedding day but after having a phone call with someone from their team, I was recommended I should try them out first before my big day! This made sense because I didn’t’ want to try something new and get creative without knowing how I would love/style it, especially for a big event in my life. Although, I was almost certain, I would love! And so I did.
I went to the Hairdreams headquarters studio in Torrance, CA. Everyone was so friendly, professional, full of passion for their work, and made me feel so comfortable. The two amazing hair stylists that worked their magic on me were Erin and Rose. Both were so cool and fun!
This was what I got done: Laserbeamer Nano. Color blend. 16 inches.
I got them done in mid Feb. It’s been 2 months and they’re going strong! Not a single extension has come off. I got to have them on for my bridal shower, my sister’s baby shower, and a couple other events. I’ve been feeling so good in them. I love waking up with beautiful long and voluminous hair. What’s great about this style of hair extensions and hair quality is that it feels like my own hair. The way I got them placed, I’m able to do ponytails and updos. I would totally get them again for another time and special occasion rather it’s Summer, the holidays, vacation, or just because! Another great thing I want to note, they have their own special hair brush, shampoo, and conditioner. This has helped keep my hair soft, hydrated, and untangled. It’s also made my hair last this long. I was told they can last up to 3-4 months, depending on how good you take care of them. I’ll be going on to my 3rd month but it feels more like they’re 6 weeks old! I’ll see how I go the next month, but so far so good.
If you’re looking to getting hair extensions or have been thinking about it and want to get it right, I would recommend Hairdreams! Hands down.
