We hope you're having a great Sunday Lockettes!
We're back with another Perfect Bloggers Series, and in case you missed our last Perfect Bloggers Series, we covered The Curvy Fashionista's review of our Kinky Curly Indian Remy Hair which on our website is now called our Kinky Curly Steam Purmed Indian Hair.
Our very first Perfect Bloggers Series blog post consisted of the lovely Rachel and her platinum hair just so happened to match our 613 platinum blonde clip on extensions perfectly! So be sure to read her review as well. ;)
This time we'd like to introduce you to Tracy from Natural Hair Problems. We love that Tracy took the time to review our bangs and we're pleased that she loves them! Our clip on bangs start at $45 and are a fantastic way to up your look, especially if you've been desiring to add some bangs to your existing hairstyle! Our bangs are made with 100% Remy human hair and come with a strong mesh base and sturdy metal clips. They are very easy to attach with the included clip, and give you a complete look with our high quality netting that holds it all together.
Here is Tracy's Review From Her Blog Natural Hair Problems:
so. i looooove bangs, right. but since i’m natural, it’s tough to keep and maintain them—they always look so cute when my hair is straight, but when i wear my hair curly, i look like a sheepdog, at best, and just plain weird at worst. so awhile ago i said to myself, ‘i wish they had some clip on bangs so i could just wear them when i wanted them.’ a quick google search showed me that they do, in fact, exist. woo! i was way excited—until i looked at the price tag. too rich for my blood, especially when they just may look a fool when i actually get them and put them in my head.
enter a right-on-time email from PerfectLocks.com. PerfectLocks is, according to the website, “a leading retailer of premium virgin Indian hair, providing authentic human hair extensions at competitive prices to customers and salons around the world.” they make all kinds of hair pieces—full wigs, half wigs, lacefronts, closures… and clip-on bangs!
they were kind enough to send me a piece to review, and i was super excited. i was nervous too though—there is nothing that irks me more than seeing a pretty girl with an obvious horse mane on her head. i am all in favor of wigs and weaves, as long as they look natural. please don’t be out here in these streets looking like a Jerry Springer show guest. so i really wanted to be able to blend the piece in with my natural hair. they have a variety of colors available; i chose “natural black/brown” since my hair is a dark brown (with a slight red tint due to henna).
my first observation: these bangs are LONG. they’re made more to be swept to the side rather than worn down straight over the eyebrows. i was kind of dismayed by this because i am all about a big high bun and dramatic bangs, a la evelyn lozada on the last basketball wives reunion. but the good news is that you can trim the bangs as you wish. (i have an unsteady hand, so i didn’t trim mine. yet.)
the bangs for the most part actually look natural, though i DID find them hard to blend in with my own straightened hair. i think this is because my hair was a lot flatter than the bangs themselves.. they had some bounce and body, and my hair was bone straight. they looked a little more natural after i flattened them some with a flat iron, and even MORE natural when i tied them down with a scarf.
i instagrammed these two pictures thinking they looked a little obvious, but most folks commenting said they looked natural and i could probably only tell the difference because it’s my hair. that could be true. and im positive that with more curl and body, they’ll blend in a LOT better than they do so far.
and now, the bad: there’s only one clip comb attached to the bangs with which to secure them to your head, right at the top. they really should have put two more on there, one on each side, to help them lay better/more naturally. with the one clip at the top, one good gust of wind and everybody knows your secret. i tried to pin down the sides with a couple of bobby pins, but that just looked obvious and silly.
i still have some experimenting to do, but overall, i am totally in favor of these bangs. they’re an easy, welcomed change to my normal look without having to commit to permanence or the awkwardness of cutting bangs into your natural hair. they’re fun! but, just make sure that the length of your hair is a silky as the bangs are. keep it all on the same page!
