You can get the Jessica Simpson line at professional hair supply shops (sometimes they’ll let non licensed purchase if you pay in cash). I know Armstrong McCall has that line for sure. However, I can tell you right off the bat that if you’re looking for a really good match and a good quality, you’re unlikely to get it for $100 unless you’re not doing a whole lot.

I just looked at the Jessica Simpson pieces on Saturday at a salon by my house. I have never gotten extensions, but I wanted to add a little length and volume for our engagement pictures next week. The ones I was looking at were natural hair and they come on a quarter-head wig base (the netting that holds the hair on a wig) with clips. You lift up the top of your hair and clip it into the middle of the back of your head. Some clip ons at Sally Beauty come with several thin strips that go from ear to ear and then a few small pieces to blend in the color. If you’re going to one-time use and clip-in you don’t need to spend a ton. I actually bought the new Revlon piece that is just like the Jessica Simpson hair for $40. It’s synthetic, though, I don’t know if you are about that. i hope that was helpful…

Keep in mind that if you want to curl your hair or texturize it in any manner, and you don’t match it both in type as well as color, it will not blend seemlessly. For example, using the same curling iron, my hair would not curl the exact same way yours would.

You can getthem online and if your worried about color, they sell swatch kits you can order.

This is where I will get mine from if I do – and I want to. The place in here in MN that sells them won’t let you NEAR them to copare hair color so your guessing and I’d rather get a swatch and order it this way.

Hi Taryn,

The swatches are tiny in the store, but just holding up the box (which is clear, BTW) you could get a good feel for the hair. I found one in chestnut, which is a dark brown with some honey-colored brown highlights that matched well. They seem to have tons of colors with varying degrees of highlights. The one i tried on was slightly curly at the ends. I know I could never get anything to match the curl in my hair, but I am planning on straightening and then curling it with an iron to get loose curls. The Revlon hair cannot be treated with heat (like all synthetic hair) but the Jessica Simpson hair can. I thought it was pretty nice-looking. It reaches to both ears so that the hair shows in the front just enough to blend quite well, actually. They don’t let you try on the color you want, though…
