As some of you noticed in my previous outfit post – I have long hair again! My hair didn’t grow over night, however. I had to do it the Hollywood way, with extensions!

The online webshop Fresh Hair is launching a new product – the Wire extensions system. I was lucky enough to try and test the product.

I always have a love-hate relationship with my hair. When it’s long, I want it short and when its short I want it long. Right now it is kind of in an in between phase, the last time I had it properly cut was in the Summer but the hairdresser didn’t do an all too great job (a little naughty of me to say that, I know). I can imagine that it was hard for her, seeing as I wanted an exact copy of the bob I had done in New York. With that being said, I thus yearned to have long hair again and was all to eager to get my hands on the Wire extensions!

I made a few detail shots, but I think the shots of me actually wearing the Wire extensions does it justice.

The Wire extensionis very easy to use, as you can see in the video here. It can be inserted in a matter of minutes, and removed in seconds. Great if you are in a rush in the mornings!

The colours a different in these two pictures, but the colour is a shade of reddish-brown, somewhere in between these shades.

Because the Wire extensions is made of natural hair, and not synthetic, you can do a lot of things with it. To test this I’ve brushed, straightened and curled the extensions and unfortunately also got stuck in the rain with them! The hair itself remained in perfect condition, as would your natural hair, and I even added a bit of Biosilk serum to give it that extra shine. Products specifically designed for the cleaning and care of natural hair extensions are available in the Fresh Hair webshop.

I was most surprised about the exact colour match, in natural light my Wire extensions match my ‘natural’ hair colour. I say ‘natural’ because I have had just about every colour under the sun. I had black hair, purple, red, yellow (my failed attempt at becoming a blonde!) and I even did the whole Ginger Spice highlights. I’ve had it all. So to be able to find an exact match with my hair colour is pretty amazing.

(This is to give you an idea of how much of a difference Wire extensions makes in length)

My conclusion is that the Wire extensions system is very easy to use. The natural hair comes in a variety of colours, styles and lengths to choose from and it can be styled to your every wish. The only less than perfect thing I can think of, is that you need to make sure that nylon cord fits your head properly, but given that Fresh Hair provides you with extra cord you can fix that yourself.

I must applaud Fresh Hair with the customer service: all my questions and concerns were promptly answered, the delivery time was super fast and the packaging was very cute! All in all, Fresh Hair is a company that is dedicated to pleasing the customers, this is something that can sometimes be forgotten with online stores.

Stay tuned, I’ll be ringing in the New Year with a giveaway!
