I have curly hair, so the idea of hair extensions seemed like something that would never be attainable for a gal like me. I’m also super lazy when it comes to my hair, so I never straighten it unless I’m getting it cut, then I have the salon do it. Otherwise, it’s either down or in a top knot. When Irresistible Me asked if I wanted to review hair extensions, I chuckled. Upon looking at their website, the extensions are sleek and beautiful, the complete opposite of my hair. Plus, I have twins. I don’t have time to apply extensions, nor do I have anywhere fancy to go. However, what did catch my eye were the ponytail extensions. A ponytail is totally something I can do!
If you have an outside of the box hair color, then you may have a hard time finding a match. Mine is boring brown, so it was easy. The color was dead on!
When my ponytail arrived I knew just when I would wear it. My cousin was getting married and I wanted a fun, yet easy style. This was perfect.
I will tell you, there aren’t directions in the box. Mind you, it’s fairly self explanatory, I think. There is a clip and you basically hook it on and wrap the ribbon around to secure it. I just Googled a YouTube video to make sure I was doing it right. Also, since my hair and the extension or different textures, I could wear my hair in a ponytail. I put it in a bun. That actually added a little poof to it, which I quite liked!
I was worried about it looking fake or like an extension, and I asked my husband his opinion. He said, “It looks like a ponytail.” Bless his heart. Since his word didn’t count, I waited until the wedding to hear critiques or criticism. The first compliment was from my mother, who told me my hair had never looked better! The next was from the bride who asked me how long it took me to straighten my hair and was amazed when I told her it was fake! Total win!
It looked real because it is. Irresistible Me’s extensions are made from 100% natural Remy hair. It felt like real hair, not synthetic. This is a huge bonus because you can style it to your hearts content. LOVE. Obviously I left mine alone, but I think it would curl really easily.
My ponytail held up through dancing and a light rain shower. As a curly haired gal, rain makes me nervous. It was nice not having to worry about frizz!
Would I wear it again? Absolutely!
