Although my hair is pretty long now, the longest its ever been infact, hair extensions will always be a vital part of my 'going out' hair routine. I don't particuarly need them for length anymore but I love them for adding a bit of oomph and volume to my hair when I go out. I also find extensions hold a curl much better than my natural hair too which is great for someone like me who wears their hair curled 90% of the time.
The latest set of lovely locks thats been clipped to my head recently is from a fabulous company called Bobby Glam. I'm really impressed with their website, customer service and the packaging of their hair extensions. Its really unusual to receive extensions in a pretty little box so before I even tried the product inside, I had high hopes. Keep reading to find out more ...
Colour & Length
The colour choice on the Bobby Glam website isn't huge but theres enough shades to cover most hair colours. They don't see any bright or dip-dyed styles but they do have a nice selection of both block and highlighted colours. The one thing I always struggle with when buying extensions is finding a colour to match my highlighted blonde hair so to see they had a few varieties was nice. I decided on the shade 'Bunny Blone' which is the lightest blonde they offer but unlike some blonde extensions, they don't look yellow and unnatural. They seem to have golden and ash tones running through them as well as the bleach blonde which is great as they match my hair perfectly.
There's two lengths available in 16-18" or 20-22" which again doesn't seem like a great deal of choice but I think this range of lengths will cover most hair types and there's always the option of cutting them shorter if needs be. As my hair is relatively long naturally, I decided to go for the 20-22" set and they're the perfect length for me being just a touch longer than my own hair.
Wefts & Thickness
There's a few different sets of extensions available from Bobby Glam including double, triple and quad sets, all of which vary in thickness. I really like that there's multiple options as everyone's hair is different and therefore needs different amounts of hair to create a natural look. I received the double weft set which means instead of having one stip of hair per weft like most full-head sets of extensions, these ones have two strips sewn together for extra thickness. The set comes with 7 strips which you can see in my photos above and 140g of hair which is quite a lot considering extensions I've used in the past have had no more than 100g. I have naturally thick so this is perfect for someone like me who needs that extra thickness without needing to add two times the amount of wefts.
The thing I love most about these extensions is how thick they are from top to bottom. If you've tried a lot of hair extensions like me, one thing you might of noticed is how they always tend to be a lot thinner towards the ends. This bugs me no end as the last thing I want is for my hair to look thin at the ends as the reason I'm buying extensions is to add thickness. With this Bobby Glam extensions, they're the same thickness from top to bottom with no scraggly thin ends in site. This is a major plus point for me and like I said, not something I've found in other extensions. The clips are really good quality too and once I've secured them into my hair, they don't budge all night.
Quality & Styling
The Bobby Glam extensions are made with 100% human remy hair which means they're safe to be styled with heated appliances. As I said earilier, I always wear my hair curled on a night out which means my extensions can often get abused with hair straighteners. However, I've been wearing these extensions on nights out for the past couple of months now and the quality has really held up so I'm very impressed. They're just as sleek and shiny as the first time I wore them and they curl like a dream. I don't find they pull of tug on my straighteners and instead glide through them to create a perfect bouncy curl. I've even sprayed them with loads of hairspray and worn them at a festival and they're still as good as new. If the past two months are anything to go by, these extensions should last me a long time. Yay!
Overall I love these extensions and I'm going to go as far as saying they're the best ones I've ever used, purely down to the fact they're the same thickness from top to bottom which is something you don't often find in hair extensions. I also love how silky soft they are and although I've worn them on numerous occassions now, the quality has remained. If you're looking for some new extensions, I can't recommend these ones enough. The double-weft set I've got are currently reduced from £84.99 to £64.99 here so its the perfect time to treat yourself if you're on the hunt for a new set!
