Today’s post is a little bit different than the typical style, or lifestyle post I usually share with you all! We are talking about hair extensions! Something I never thought I would be sharing with you guys. But nonetheless, a post I am really excited about!
About a month ago Irresistible Me reached out to me literally minutes after telling a co-worker I was looking into buying hair extensions – funny how that works? Talk about awesome timing! So, of course I emailed them immediately back and here we are today talking about hair extensions!
I was clueless when it came to the world that is hair extensions. I knew I wanted longer hair, but didn’t know how they would look on me. There are a million different kinds that all come with different colors, lengths and even thickness. Working with Irresistible Me took all of the guessing work out of it. They were SO helpful and made sure I got both the length and color I was searching for!
What length should I choose?
I knew going into it that I wanted a noticeable difference in length. I have always wanted long hair, but have never been patient enough to let my natural hair grow out. Or when I do let it grow out I always end up chopping it off. Top 10 things I always regret. I think most girls have gone through this phase. Anyway, Irresistible Me has a hair chart that shows all of the different lengths you can choose, which was really helpful while picking. I could visualize what my length would like, and sort of figure out which one would be too long, and what would be just right!
I am wearing the golden blonde Royal Remy hair 18 inches in 200 grams.
How do you find your perfect color?
What’s really great about Irresistible Me is they have a video specifically to help you find the right color! In the video they show all of the color options in natural light, so you can see what they genuinely look like. Also, they compare all of the same tones to each other so you can really see which one works for you! I have lots of natural highlights in my hair, so didn’t really know what color would work best for me but the video was a life-savor. It was super helpful that I could compare all of the different shades of blonde! I could pick out which ones were like platinum as opposed to the more dirty blonde!
I am extremely happy with my hair extensions! They are so soft, and natural looking. And since they are real you can color, wash, cut and style them however you want! I have been wearing them in lots of different braids lately. It’s so fun to have so much hair to play with.

And surprisingly almost no one has noticed me wearing them. Which is crazy to me because they add SO MUCH length to my hair! I have worn them to work, a few events and even on Snapchat! I was expecting a few messages from people asking about them, but nope. But guess it’s all out for everyone to know now huh? Ha!
And another tip for those of you with hair extensions already, or those about to purchase: bring your extensions to your local salon and have your hairdresser cut your extensions and hair together to make them more blendable! They will know what to do!
How do you put them in?
YouTube was my go-to as soon as my package came in the mail! There are a bunch of influencers and beauty vloggers that have tutorials up on how to put your extensions in! Also, just practicing. Everyone’s hair is different, and you will start to learn where to put your extensions in! It’s all trial and error.
