DIY: Halo hair extensions

You may have seen these new style of extensions when Kelly Rippa ripped her's off live on TV! I looked into this style of extensions because I have literally tried every other type out there and all of them have destroyed my hair. Including clip in's which gave me bald spots! They are really hard to find, but I randomly ran into a kiosk at the Culver City Westfield mall that carried them and this ratty old lady made me try them on. To be honest, I like them, I think they're a good idea because they literally don't hurt your hair in any way. Buuuuuut, I personally think they are a little annoying because they feel like you're wearing a headband, and I HATE headbands. This is the reason I didn't buy them for $600! So naturally I thought I'll just make them, haha. (I'm thrifty)

it's extremely easy to do!


So I bought, 909 straight hair extensions from the Hair Shop on Wilshire in Hollywood. (color 1B)


This is what they look like out of the package in one long strand, you can call it a track or weft. 
I held the strand up to my head and measured and cut three pieces that went from a little past the ear to the same spot on the other side of my head. 



I then glued, with a hot glue gun, the three tracks that are the same length on top of each other so that you have one nice thick piece of hair.


This is just a close up of me glueing the tracks together
don't mind my nasty nails and carpet:)


Then use either fishing wire or jewelry threading and sew the wire to both sides of the track so that it makes a halo for your head. You don't have to really sew it, just use a needle to get the wire through the tracks and then tie like 8 knots so it's nice and tight. Make sure before you knot it, fit it to your head!


This is the product I used


And this is how you put the halo in:)

  3. Hair extensions are nothing new and almost every woman I know uses them. Unless you are blessed with thick and long hair, you need them very badly! Hair extensions Hollywood are the best way to go if you want to get extensions for yourself. There are different types of extensions like real hair and weaves.
