We Tried It: Platinum Seamless Hair Extensions, Finest Hair Extensions
Why I did it: I simply really wished long, lush hair. And if celebs can cheat the system, why can’t I
Stage of difficulty: Contemplating I used to be on the Ryan Darius salon for less than an hour (and singing ’90s membership jams the whole time) I’d say a 0. Any challenges have been handled by my gifted stylist Ryan Nickulas and my lovely Folks.com colleague who documented it all like a pro. Thanks, Britt!

When Ryan first advised that I give these extensions a whirl, I believed he was crazy. A earlier and unsuccessful DIY attempt at clip-in extensions ripped out a huge chunk of my already-sparse strands. However Ryan pinky promised: no drama and plenty of fairly hair. So I went for it.
Ryan strategically updo curly hairstyles for prom mapped out where the 5 “wefts” of hair can be placed. He thought-about issues like whether or not I tuck my hair behind my ears (I do) and if I put on sunglasses on my head (not so much). Then, he began his magic by creating crisply parted horizontal sections with a comb, then making use of every piece like this:
They had been secure enough to make use of on my further-delicate tresses as a result of Platinum Seamless extensions are very gentle, and attach to your individual hair with a tiny gel adhesive — so flat and skinny that it’s undetectable beneath even the skinniest strands like mine. And they feel so good I can’t assist touching them all through the process (although I do know I’m not purported to!).

To finish, Ryan curled it with this updo curly hairstyles for prom scary-trying but genius double-barrel curling contraption only for fun. He informed me not to wash it for 48 hours and to return back in six to eight weeks for a re-do. I’m fortunate enough to get the bestie/household low cost, but the entire shebang can value wherever from $200 to $2000 (depending on your salon and how much hair you get).
The verdict: Um, take a look at my hair! It’s completely value it! They feel and appear precisely like my hair, but better. I constantly get compliments and no one may even tell I’ve extensions. To type it, Ryan (pictured with me beneath) taught me to blow-dry with no brush after which wrap it all (all that mermaid hair!) around a curling wand. It’s significantly so easy. I’m addicted and would recommend it to anyone dreaming of Gisele hair (however not willing to have a Gisele-dimension workforce readily available).
