i had a half updo for my sisters wedding and i had no extensions and no problems! i also have relatively thick hair… it turned out fine. sounds like she just wants to sell you more product to be honest…

My friend did.

Before….and after! her hair stayed curly and not frizzy, too, since most of that in the bottom is those ken pave fake hair!

They looked AMAZING. Amazing, all night long. Nobody knew they were in there!

You can buy these extensions online, by the way.

It poured all day long at her wedding. All our hair fell flat, limp, and got frizzy. Not hers!

Omg her hair looks AWESOME. That just convinced me I need hair extensions for my wedding. Were they just the clip in ones?

I thought hair extensions might look weird at first, too, but then i was completely blown away by how naturally they blended in and gave her tons and tons of fullness.

They were the Ken Pave hair extensions….you can buy them on sale places–i think she got them at Sally’s?

It looks like he sells both human hair and synthetic hair… do you know which hers were? They look amazing!

Definitely the cheap synthetic ones =]. You can only kinda tell in that pholto that we took super close to her head. The synthetic hair is way glossy but in person it just completely blended in.

awesome. it is a price difference of $80 v. $400! I would totally consider doing this. My hair is super thin and I didn’t think wearing it half or all down was even an option because of that. Maybe i’ll have to rethink!

I don’t think she paid $80…..probably more like $50. The box had a huuuge red sale sticker on it but I can’t remember what else it said. I just know she was like “oh i got these on sale!” and was really excited about the good deal. http://www.maxwigs.com/10-inch-clip-in-straight-by-hairdo-hair-extensions-p4814.html they are $60 here….

She had the 23″ clip-in “wavy” extensions, which may be an older season’s hair or something

Edit: the hairstylist curled them, too, on LOW heat. BTW i’m seriously thinking about getting these for my lazy hair nights =].

matter of taste. i say “no” to extensions. (it’s very now, and very trendy — but so was the bee-hive in about 1967 !)

OMG girl that IS THE HAIR STYLE I want!  I’ve already got the long blonde hair but might add one or two of those in for oomph.

Her hair is gorgeous!  Im printing this off! I want that hair! 

I’ve always said I was doing the half up half down and she just absolutely rocked that look!  Now just to get her figure too! (20 lbs to go!)

I don’t think the extensions date her hair–they’re the same length AND color as her natural hair, and they were a very practical choice considering if she didn’t have them in, she’d have had flat, frizzy, not pretty hair like us bridesmaids =]. It’s not like it was some drastic change for her. Even though she TOLD us she was having them clipped in, it didn’t really register with me b/c it matched really nicely! Now, if she had short hair, I guess that’d be a big change =].

Bellenga–i’m getting the high-res DVD from her this weekend with ALL her wedding pics. Shoot me your email and I’ll send you the quality ones so you can print them off better! She was a pro cheerleader for 2 years…that’s how she got that figure Tongue out
