I live for puns and I literally started to LOL when I thought of New Year’s Weave as this blog title hahaha. Sometimes I laugh at my own jokes, but I mean sometimes they’re really funny and they deserve the extra laughs. And I’m home alone with a two year old all day everyday, and she usually doesn’t appreciate my humor like I need her to.
So, since I’ll be hanging out with B. Spears in Vegas this weekend, I obvi need to be extra extra, so I clearly needed some extra hair to achieve this goal. I personally only like to do the clip-in extensions, mostly because anything permanent makes me nervous… which is probably why I’ve never owned a home or gotten a tattoo. I used to wear hair extensions ALL the time, but something weird happened the last couple of years and my hair actually grew and got semi-healthy, and it’s truly been quite lovely not having the extra step in my beauty routine. But, after two long years, I decided to bring ole Susan back into my life (this is what my friends and I named our extensions in college… Sue/Susie/Susan. You get it.). I swear by this particular brand that can be purchased on Amazon in two different length options (both are linked below). It’s human hair, the clips are attached, and the blonde frost is a PERFECT match for me. I’m wearing the 18in, but the 14in would have worked well too and wouldn’t have been as dramatic, but I decided to go with 18in because I can always trim them later. They come with 4 big strands that you place in the back section of your head and 4 tiny strands that you can place on the front sides. I usually only wear 3 big strands in the back and one small strand on each side. Place the big strands about an inch a part in the back lower section of your head – I make a straight line and clip my hair up before I clip in each strand like this:
and place the small strand about an inch above your ear (I usually cut these strands a little shorter ahead of time to make them blend better with my natural hair). Everyone’s different, but I like to curl my hair after they’re in, I use hair spray like usual, and wash them very seldom.. I actually like the texture accumulated from the hairspray. And when people ask you, “Wow is that all your hair?! It’s so long and full!”, you can innocently and confidently respond “Yes, thank you!”, because you did in fact buy it, therefore it is all yours. Or you can just own it and let the world wide web know that you’re actually wearing someone else’s hair on your head… kinda like I’m doing now. Whatever you decide to do, welcome to Club Sue!
