Review: Long blonde hair, 1001extensions

25-08-’13



Hi everyone,

I love my own hair, but always when I do something cool with it (for example curl it) the effect is gone within less than a couple of hours. My hair is pretty fine and thin and it’s, well, flat. So when I got a message from 1001extensions.nl to try there product I was very curious and more than happy to review a set of hair extensions. Hoping on a full coupe with a little more volume and more thickness I tried the extensions, and I really like the result!!! Are you curious to see how I look with even longer blonde hair?

Ciao!!

PS: don’t forget to join my Yves Rocher giveaway 😀

The hair extensions from 1001extensions are 100% human (Indian) hair and come in a lot of different colors, two styles (curls or straight) and in four different lengths. I went for the light blonde, straight extensions in the 50cm length. The length is really long but I really wanted extensions which made my hair look longer and still being able to maybe cut the extensions in the right shape 😉 


As you can see in this photo the color I choose, light blonde, fits really nice with my own hair color! My own hair consists out of a lot of different shades of blonde and a little bit of darker blonde even at the back of my head, but with this color and the natural shades the extensions have I think the color matches really well!


Putting the extensions in was a little bit confusing for me since the instructions did not really work for me. My hair is so thin that the clips where showing. But luckily after a google search I found a dutch fashionbloggers youtube video about how she puts in her extensions and so it all worked out.

From the package of 7 extension mats I have now used 6! From bottom to top I have used one with 2 clips, one with 3 clips, the largest one with 4 clips, than one with 3 clips above the one with 4 clips and the two little ones with one clip at the sides (sort of next to the one with 3 clips). 

So I really like the result, I had a little bit more volume, but mostly I had thicker and longer hair! Here are some of the pro’s:

  • Quality of the human hair (color / strength)
  • The extensions do not glide out of my own hair
  • Effect of the extensions (longer and thicker hair)
  • Pricing, around €55 when they are in sale 🙂
  • Being able to change the length of your hair so quickly
Now some of the cons: 
  • You can still see clearly where my own hair ends (I hope this will be gone after cutting the extensions in the shape my own hair is cut) or I need to let my hair grow a lot longer 😉
  • I personally think it is a little hard to remove, maybe I am just to afraid to get my hair all tangled up
Over all I am really happy to have these extensions and I will definitely put them in for special occasions! What do you think of my long blonde hair??

Shoplog Double Beauty & Herome

My purchases, all from Herome, stuffed in a Herome beauty bag.

Good evening all,

As you know I have been to two beauty events lately, the Double Beauty showroom opening and the Herome Cosmetics 31st birthday party  The events were lovely and I couldn’t help myself but do some shopping. So now I have bought quite the huge nail polish and nail care collection in the last two to three weeks haha.

In this blogpost I will post some pictures from the items I have bought. I really hope you all like it!

I bought this W.I.C. nail polishes at the Double Beauty showroom opening, the first nail polish is number 57, Napoli, the second was in the goodiebag we got at the event and is number 154 Aarhus. Last but not least, number 82, Paris with a free matching lipgloss! 
But that’s not all. At the birthday party from Herome I also bought some nice nail care products and one polish.  
This nail whitener is so chique and sophisticated. It makes the nail white even whiter and the  natural pink color of your nails more pink. One of the most beautiful polishes in my opinion! I also bought some nail care products, a glass-vile and S.O.S. nail repair glue. And, Herome gave all the party people a nice gift, their wonderpen. This is a pencil with a little brush at the  end with which you can soften and moisturize your cuticles and your nail, I am really curious about the results from using the wonderpen! 

And so my Herome products addiction began… When I went to the drugstore, to buy some skin and hair care products, I saw the discount corner and the sold a Herome French Manicure Set Glamour for only €10,- when the normal price would have been above €20,-! So I just couldn’t help myself and bought this set as well.  Who says I am a nail polish addict?!

 



Event: Herome Cosmetics 31st birthday!

On monday I went on a very long long trip through Holland, from Eindhoven to Almere for the 31st birthday from Herome Cosmetics! Besides fashion I really think skincare and beauty stuff is a big part of the whole package. So secretly I have a nailpolish addiction haha, when I saw Herome was celebrating it’s 31st birthday I just had to be there! 

In this blogpost I will show the pictures I made and tell you a bit about the event! 
Enjoy!!

The event was very well organized, at arrival you could see the brand logo and there were some lovely ladies asking for your confirmation email who told you a little about the event and gave you a glass of rose champagne with mint and raspberry, yumm! And the snacks where lovely as well, filled egg’s, wraps with salmon, crackers with tuna salad, you name it! 
At the event you could shop and get a manicure or some nailcare advice! Herome really has some lovely products for nailcare, for example the SOS nailrepair kit and the wonderpen! I can’t wait to try these products! For the shopping we got a HUGE discount from 50% off! Very bad for a nailpolish addict like me, but I decided to mostly buy nailcare products and only one polish, the glamour nail whitener! 

Look at all these amazing products: 
You could even buy the new limited edition Peaceful Finland W.I.C. polishes! I think they will hit the stores next week… I really loved the colors! 

And some of the other products on display: 



Besides nailpolishes and nailcare Herome also has a lot of products for your hands, creams, desinfecting gell and more. The slogan from Herome is: “Je handen zijn je visitekaartje” or in English: “Your hands are your business card” sounds strange but it’s true I think.
The entrance of the headquarters, this Herome building is the main Herome building and it’s not only office but laboratory and the warehouse! You could actually ask for specific products and the lovely staff would just go get it for you, really the best service I have ever had! 🙂 The other two photo’s are made in the hallway of the building. 




As mentioned earlier I did some shopping! I will post a shoplog from the Double Beauty event a few weeks ago and about this event later this week! 🙂 Stay tuned all! 

Much love <3

The showroom opening from Double Beauty was very well organised, small, but great to get to meet the owners and to try the products they sell. You could do your nails, you could get visage and the girls where also available to style your hair! I loved the cozy feel of the opening and how open the girls from Double Beauty where to me and Deniece. 

Double Beauty sells a lot of different brands, for example Herome, Herome WIC, Everyday Minerals, Too Faced, Burt’s Bees, Bedhead, Geisha and soon they will even start their own skincare line with Monoi de Tahiti products ( I LOVE Monoi de Tahiti!!! <3 )

I really think the opening was a very nice and pampering experience! We got our nails done, my hair was styled and I went home with some lovely nailpolishes from WIC and a goodiebag!! Oh, before I forget… the Double Beauty showroom is based in Amsterdam at the Spaandammerstraat for the ones interested 😉
