Before then, I thought that hair extensions were just for younger gals, who want to have really long hair and look glamorous. I certainly am not into looking like a cover model, or attracting any unwanted attention, or look like I'm trying to be something I'm not, or just plain trying too hard! I dismissed hair extensions as something completely out of my comfort zone.
But since I am a review blogger, duty called! I ordered the Royal Remy 17" extensions, a conservative length, in light brown. They came within a few days of my order but it took me awhile to get the motivation to try them on. I was fascinated when I opened the box!
Being extremely naive about the whole process, I experimented with it myself. I didn't realize, at the time, that it was clip-in. I tried to put it in by just wedging in a few of the strands--like a comb (there are little teeth, albeit tiny!). It actually did work but it wasn't comfortable and I felt it was going to fall out. But I wore it out and about to a couple of things. I'm just glad it didn't fall out right then and there on the spot. I really need to start reading the directions on things.
But even with the embarrassing faux pas, I loved the look of the hair and knew I wanted to incorporate it into my routine, especially for special occasions. Here are some before and after pictures of me wearing the extensions without even clipping them in. (I'm such a dweeb!)

What I love about these extensions or pieces of hair is that they blend in so well to my overall hairstyle. I didn't need to cut them for my purposes! It is a real boost to my overall look! My husband says it makes me look 10 years younger. What do you think?
