I was trained at HD Makeup Studio and Academy (formerly Basement Academy) for makeup and hairstyling by some of the best makeup artists in the Philippines.

I love to blog about my make-up, beauty, parenting, and other personal adventures in this site.

Clip-on Hair Extensions

Share

When I took a hair styling course at the HD Academy, my mentors would always say "you can't be a hairstylist if you do not have hair extensions". It's true because most brides today prefer longer and volumized hair which is sometimes impossible to achieve with their natural hair. Hair extensions are also useful in photoshoots that have complicated pegs.

One of my best career investments are these clip on extensions from Tokyo Posh. I've got the chance to talk to the owner, Denise Aquino, who's a fellow HD graduate last year and she got me hooked with these extensions from Japan. They're very easy to use. They're synthetic but high quality and looks very natural. (When using hair extensions, you need to use the shade that matches your hair color so it would look like your real hair). But the downside in using synthetic hair extensions is that you can't style it using your hot tools. So I take good care of these babies so I could use them for a longer time.

I've got different kinds that I've used in various gigs already.

Ponytail extensions. This is my Dec 2 bride, Monique, who wants a longer side ponytail with a loose fish braid accent.

This was my wedding gig last 11.11.11. The bride provided her own extensions because she wanted a long, waist-length curly hair.

But I recently discovered a synthetic heat resistant clip-on hair extensions while shopping at Landmark. It's only P429 so I immediately grabbed one to test :)

It looks natural too. Love it already even though I haven't tested it that much because it's cheaper and more versatile. I must buy some more in brown. hope they're back on stock.

Happy Thursday!

another easy, hassle-free and safest way to attach is the Clip in hair extensions. try it. Just make sure that you choose a hair extension color that is similar to your current hair colors so it won't look fake :)
