Tinsel Extensions!

12:02 AM


Last season on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" Millionaire Adrienne Maloof wore tinsel extensions in her hair. When I first saw them, I was amazed at how beautiful they looked. The more I researched this trend, turns out many stars including Beyonce are a fan of Tinsel Extensions. So I tried it. I bought this Tinsel Extension set at Ross for $3


The set came with three rolls of Tinsel: Copper, Gold and Brown. Above is a picture of the Copper and Gold, the brown tinsel blended in with my hair and no matter how I took the picture, it just looked as if it was my hair.  So, lets discuss the PROS and CONS I had doing this myself....

PROS: They came out wonderful! It was sexy and fun!

CONS: After struggling with tying the knot by my roots for 30 minutes, the second time it took maybe 10-15 minutes...so it's kind of time consuming if you are doing it by yourself (also depending on how many parts of your hair you decided to put em on)

How would I rate Tinsel Extensions?

5 OUT 5

They sure are fun! I mean, so many people were amazed by them. You don't even need a lot, just a few peek-a-boos here and there! 

Would you try this look?

I'd never heard of this. I don't watch TV and try to stay away from fashion magazines. It looks cool, but it wouldn't it be easier and more permanent to just highlight a few individual strands of hair?
