Instantly longer hair

SQUEAL! I have long hair! It happened in a nano second this morning after I'd received my Halo Hair Extensions hair piece in the post.

I have hated my hair for the past 5+ years. It's never been right since I overly bleached it blonde to please the husband (who still goes on to this day about how much he loved it lighter). I've had it cut, I've badly home dyed it and I've grown older. I've always thought it would be so nice if wigs and hair pieces were 'in' and now they are - hoo-bloody-rah!

There is a really good video on the website of how to make the halo hair piece work and it really couldn't be easier - seriously SO easy.

First you put it on like a halo and then you pick your hair out and lay over the invisible plastic halo wire. It's not uncomfortable at all but .............. I need to work on how to secure it properly as it did feel as if I'd just put it on and it didn't feel tight or secure - a gust of wind would expose my the hair piece. But I was short of time this morning and haven't yet mastered the art - I will!

It comes beautifully wrapped with a comb, clip, shampoo and conditioner to care for it.


Here she is lying flat

I was worried about the colour match but I didn't need to. The ladies at Halo are amazing. You send them a picture of you/your hair and they totally know what colour to choose for you (and what length). I got sent a 12" hair piece in dark brown - the match was PERFECT.

So what do I look like?










Can you tell how happy I am? If you have any questions let me know! This was sent to me to review and I have been honest. I absolutely love it - I can't actually put into words how happy have long hair makes me.

UPDATE: these photographs were taken from the front - didn't check the back until a friend came round a few days later to help me get it ready for a party on Saturday night. We just couldn't make it work sadly. My own hair just sat on top of the hair piece and it was SO OBVIOUS I was wearing it. We curled my hair and the halo hair piece (which curled beautifully) but because my hair is one length and the halo hair piece is one length it just looked weird. I'll make it work for me one day ... just trying to work out what's next as long hair is the way forward for me!

  1. Oh it's FABULOUS! honest, if I didn't know, I'd never know (from the pics..) that it's a hair piece, the colour match is absolutely amazing. I prefer it with the fringe up - not sure about it with it down but maybe that's just because I love it when you wear your hair like that. You do look thrilled with it and rightly so. x

  7. Amazing! That bottom middle picture is just stunning, and I'm choosing my words carefully here because you don't look remotely old in the first place, but longer hair takes years off you. You look even younger!! Did I get away with it?? ;-) xx

    1. I would like a full wig piece I think but they are really expensive to get the good ones. Are they expensive?

  10. Looks great. How did your hair look before? I'm growing out an inverted bob and really want to try one of these but I don't think it will work.

  15. My friend has one from this company, and she has been so thrilled with it. Just like you, she says it's so comfy and you would never know it's not her hair? Yours look amazing too, and such a big smile on your face says it all!! Helen xx

  16. Fiona - I LOVE it! It looks amazing on you and I love that you can just whip it off when you don't want to wear it...long hair is great and all that but it's a right pain day in-day out I can tell you from experience. Do you just wash it like regular hair then? Guessing it doesn't need a wash too often though. OK - off to check out the website! Ax
