Show&Tell - Hair Extensions

If you know me, you will know I'm madly obsessed with hair extensions, I have worn them nearly every day since I was 14 and I am now coming up 23! I can't even count the amount of sets I have bought nor do I want to know the amount of money I've spent!

I have bought from many different companies and over time I've become more and more fussy about how I want them! However just under a year ago I bought a set from and fell in love.

I then needed a new set recently, bought from somewhere on reccomendation and hated them so it just shows what someone else rates,you might hate! Anyway, needless to say I went back to lush and this time ordered a 24" set rather than my usual 20" as my natural hair is getting a lot longer!

When the extensions arrived, although I ordered the deluxe set, I knew they wouldn't be thick enough for my fussy standards but I have a 20" set I can use to layer and thicken them. The set is lovely and long though! Lush do do a thicker ultimate set however I didn't go for these as I wasn't sure if 24" would be too long for me so I just stuck to deluxe!

Lush make a lovely effort and send your extensions in a nice pink bag with their own lush hair extensions tape, very cute! This is what the extensions look like:

This is what the hair looks like and as I've just washed my 20" set I've put a quick length comparison in for you to see as well!

My comments on the hair is that I love the quality, I hate extensions that are super shiny as I think they just look unnatural and awful against my real hair but these are not like that! They have a natural look and feel and so blend with natural hair really easily. They are easy to style but if I am going to be honest I would say that the ends of mine this time round did go quite dry quite quickly! I still love the quality though as they are more natural than a lot of other extensions I have previously purchased.

I styled the extensions and put them in my hair and even curled they are still really long. This is them in my hair without adding my old set for extra volume:

Then this is what they look like when I've layered my 20" set (which is a bit old and ratty tbh, but I tried to blend!) with my new 24" set, didn't get great pics though:

What I might do when I have some more money is buy a 22" simple full head set to blend with and thicken these up, just cos' I'm far too fussy!

If you want extensions i definitely recommend you try lush! You can get them here: and you can even use their free colour matching service if you are unsure about what shade to go for!

I am happy to review more hair extensions for you when I have the money to buy more if you would be interested?

 I'm determined to try a Halo! Must get my hands on one of those to review when I get money!

What are your fave clip-in extensions? Have you tried lush?

  5. Hi, i recently bought Lush extensions and am over the moon with them. I also have the Halo, which is good, but i would definitely not buy them again. I was so dissapointed as the ends are thin and straggly and the bit which goes around the back of your head is soooo bulky! I was gutted as they were £100 and i'd previously made my own Halo style extensions, by sewing wefts together and adding clear wire myself. That is what i've done with my Lush extensions and i prefer them 100% to the Halo...

    1. Thank you so much for this, I might just buy wefts and sew them to a wire myself if I don't try out the halo! Thanks for sharing, great idea! Xxx

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this great blog.Very inspiring and helpful too.Hope you continue to share more of your ideas.I will definitely love to read.
