These extensions are AMAZING. 'Nuff said. I took a trip to Sally's a couple days ago and purchased a second set in the shade Espresso. The Sally Beauty website has it spelled "Expresso" but the spelling on the actual packaging box of the extensions is "Espresso" and that is the correct spelling as far as I know. Anyways, moving on... :)
This shade matches my hair perfectly because my hair is a deep brown-black.The shade "Dark Brown" really isn't a dark brown in my opinion ; its a medium golden brown. I bought a set of these in Dark Brown like 2 1/2 years ago and I had to dye them darker. At the time the Espresso shade wasn't sold at the Sally's I go to and I had no idea it was even in existence so I had planned to buy another set in Dark Brown and dye them darker again. I think jet black extensions look witchy which is why I avoided the Jet Black shade. I was so happy when I discovered that they sold a shade which matched my natural hair color because dying 18" extensions is a pain in the a**! I nearly ruined my bathroom last time lol. Skipping the dying step will be a big relief :)
They are sooooo soft and silky! I can't stop touching these when I wear them. Its probably noticeable to the people around me that I keep stroking my hair haha. I get peeved when some people complain that these extensions are too thin. On the contrary, I think they are perfect because they look and feel like real hair. Who wants to walk around with 8 lbs. of hair attached to your head? It would cause migraines and look fake.
Manageability & Durability:
I think they are great in both departments. Putting them in is easy, washing them is easy, heat styling them is easy, etc. They do stay very nice and soft but like all extensions they can get tangly over time. Be sure to take proper care of them! I have not experienced shedding or any other problems that come along with hair extensions. This brand of extensions has a good reputation, continuously receives positive reviews and is an excellent buy for the price.
Other Comments: Be sure to pick up Miracle 7's Leave-In Mist for Extensions!!! (bright red bottle, $15) Assists in blending the extensions with your natural hair, upholds the integrity of the extensions as well as bringing damaged ones back to life, has thermal protectant and smells beautiful. I've used it on my old set of extensions and after seeing the result I wonder if buying a new set was necessary ;) lol.
I have the 14" dark brown. Blends FLAWLESSLY with my shoulder length hair that i recently dyed brown. I have medium thickness hair so I only needed one package. I had the extensions professionally layered at a salon after putting them in- the stylist herself said she had no idea they were extensions until I told her and she was quite impressed. Having them layered by a professional avoids the dreaded "mullet" look from adding extensions. I have an amazing technique that allows me to even sleep with them in. I have super fine hair so the clips had a hard time anchoring in. So I section my hair, then apply a bit of bigsexyhair brand Powder Play on the section where the clip will be, then tease the area, then apply hairspray to set. Then I wait a few moments then apply the clip next to the roots of the prepared section. Those clips are ANCHORED in! And I can leave my hair in for a few days until I am ready to wash it. I take the extensions out and wash them separately in the sink. Be sure to detangle BEFORE you wash while they are still dry or they will get matted. These extensions are a dream especially for the price. Instant hair gratification!
I bought my 1st set of 14 inch Euronext extensions from Sallys about 3 years ago and loved them so much that a year later I bought a 2nd set in a different color. Sure, there may be better out there if you want to pay way more but these are great; they look real, you can heat style them and I personally have had no problem with them tangling at all. My boyfriends teenage daughter used them in family pics on the beach and it was super windy!! Even after pictures they werent as tangled as my own hair was....When I bought my 2 sets the price was $79 and that was great but I recently went back to get a new color and was a little sad they raised the prices of these extensions to $135! That kind of killed a little bit of my love affair with this brand because I loved Euronext for the quality you get with the lower price =( I would still recommend though!
I purchased my sets at Sally's Beauty Supply. A year ago, I had no idea what extensions were or that you could add length to your hair with real human hair. My hair was finally long again until I had my friend's mother cut it. She had cut my hair a million times before, but this time she completely butchered my hair. I had to go to another salon and get it fixed and cut evenly. My hair was SO short and I was so depressed. A few weeks later I was still devastated, but thankfully my wonderful boyfriend offered to get me some extensions! Naturally, I agreed and we went straight to Sally's. I wanted the longest ones they had, which is 18". I got the ones that are darker blonde and highlights, I believe "Frosted Blonde". My hair gradually became lighter and lighter, and my second purchase was "Cool Blonde". They matched perfect with my new blonde hair even though my real hair was darker and more golden, and I put my "Frosted Blonde" Extensions underneath where my hair was darker. I am now fully platinum blonde, and the "Platinum Blonde" extensions match perfectly! I've bought 3 separate sets of these extensions and that's saying something. They are very silky and the quality is pretty amazing. They aren't super thick or anything but they do last very long. I wore mine almost every day for 4 months straight with continuous wear and tear and even sleeping in them, and they are still holding strong.They straighten beautifully and hold a curl for days. I've washed/dyed mine pink, blue, toned them etc several times and they are still in great condition. The only thing I'm a little upset about is the new price - it's now 170$ for a set of 18" extensions and the hair isn't even really that thick or anything, even though I do love them sadly, my hair is now as long as my extensions. I do love these extensions! They last very long with continuous wear and tear, I heard they were only meant to last 6 months but I could be wrong and mine have lasted way longer! The only thing I noticed is that the clips do get loose and kind of don't clip into my hair after awhile so I literally have to bobby pin them in to keep them in place, but you can easily resew new clips in so that's not a problem. I do feel that these are pricey and I'm a beauty member at Sally's so mine even get a discount and you only get 8 clips with clips actually on them. I just placed an order with HeadKandy.com and I am super excited to compare the two. I ordered the 24"-26" extensions from HeadKandy.com in "Bunny Blonde" and I am super excited to see how they hold up. :)
Ok I am writing this review after wearing the extensions for eight months, so no haters are allowed to say "she only wore them once and gave a great review". My hair is really thin and damaged. like I have no idea why bc I am puerto rican and Italian, its in my genes to have good hair. But I don't. It got to the point where I had to cut my hair super short bc it was so uneven and dry. I got these extensions and I love them. I got the 14 in and I honestly wish I would have gotten the 18 in bc you have to cut them to make them blend with your hair. Yah there thin. Which match my hair perfectly. They will still match your hair as long as its not super thick. I have a friend who is a hairstylist and she ended up having to buy two packs bc her hair is like unnaturally thick. But even with buying two packs its still beats buying them anywhere else. Everywhere else the hair isnt as soft,they tangle alot easier and the clips dont work as well. They dont have crazy colors like the red violet that I like. But there really easy to color and they hold color well. I only wash mine about every ten days. And I wear mine EVERY SINGLE DAY. no joke. so I know what I am talking about. There one of the few extensions that when you put them in they look great straight. Most extensions only look natural when you curl them and this isn't the case at all with these.. I normally curl mine on Friday night before going out and I go out every night of the weekend and they don't need to be re curled. They work better with a curling wand instead of a curling iron and hot rollers do not work at all with mine. The clips are comfortable and I don't have to constantly readjust mine. These are just starting to get to a point where I need to rebuy but the life on these is six months. And I am going on eight and I could probably push it another 2 months before I got another pack if I wanted too.. For 130$ they are so worth it. Unless your going to pay 400$ for hello gorgeous extensions or headkandy than your best bet is Euronext. DO NOT BUY LUXY. Im serious.. Another great brand is foxy locks and if your good with a needle satin strands, you just have to sew the clips on yourself. I suggest spraying a leave in conditioner after you wash and I always blow dry my extensions. I let them naturally dry once and it was awful working through all the knots that were left because of that.
The quality of these hair extensions are one of the best I've have yet, I had these for just over a year and they were in amazing condition (and super soft!) for about 8 months. They were bleached and dyed 3x and still held up VERY well, it was until an inexperienced hair dresser cut them that I had to throw them out.
The only complaint I have about these hair extensions is that they're too thin for my hair. Even that can be fixed by blending the hair into your own. I give these hair extensions a solid 9/10
These are okay, if you are a beginner with hair extensions. Always keep a comb with you, because they will tangle throughout the day. You get what you pay for, they are cheaper compared to other brands of hair extensions.
These hair extensions are amazing! This is the 3rd consecutive year that I've been wearing hair extensions, and I love this brand. They blend flawlessly and are pretty thick. When I first got these, my hair was shoulder length and I honestly felt like a boy at the time, but on my 15th birthday I got these and they are honestly the best investment I've ever made. The first time I bought some they lasted me two years! I just got some new ones this past July for my 17th birthday. I seriously recommend these to everyone. I get tons of compliments and people are shocked to hear that I have hair extensions on. I currently have the 18" ones and my hair goes down to my lower back, amaaazing!
If you're on the fence about getting these hair extensions, I suggest you get them, you won't regret it!
I have never written a review for anything before in my life, but I had to come on just to tell anyone who is considering buying hair extensions, do it and buy this brand! Over the winter, I dyed my hair an auburn color, hated it and too soon went back to blonde, resulting in breakage of my then long, beautiful, healthy hair. My hair length shortened by about 6 inches. It took me years to grow out my hair before this, and would have nightmares about cutting it. After 2 people in my family asked why I cut my hair, when I didn't I knew I had to do something. I was really self conscious, and insecure about my damaged hair, that my friends took me to Sally's to buy some extensions. I was really hesitant because I didn't want to get my hopes up, and I never liked the thought of fake hair anyway, but I figured I had nothing to lose so I bought them and my friends were so excited for me they put them in, in the backseat of the car in the parking lot. That night we went out for my birthday and they curled them. They look absolutely amazing! I have never felt so confident, and I am so happy I bought them for a temporary fix until my hair is healthy again. I have received so many countless compliments on my hair, it's amazing. No one knows they are fake, and I feel great! If I could I would rate these a 11/10, they blend amazingly and I could not be happier or feel better! Buy buy buy!
Wow! I have never written a review on any product before, but it's totally worth my time to rave about these hair extensions!!! I am so impressed! I've never worn hair extensions but have always wanted them. I heard about them from my sister in law, who is a hair stylist and she has several clients who use these. I have fine, medium to thin hair and these add the volume and length I need. I bought the 18" extensions and trimmed them up about 2". The strands are much thicker than my own hair and stand up to heat and humidity better than my own hair but they blend so perfectly with my color that no one even knows I am wearing them. The color "Dark Brown" is a perfect match for my medium/golden brown hair. If you have true "Dark Brown" hair, you'll have to dye these because they really aren't that dark of a brown color.
I would buy these again, but I hope I don't need to anytime soon as I plan to take really good care of them. I would also recommend them to those who are looking for a great priced, high quality set of extensions. Wow! Totally impressed and in love with my new long, thick hair!!!
