Halo Hair Extensions Review

I have had the pleasure to try and review some amazing extensions from Halo hair. I have never worn extensions before, so I was ever so excited when halo offered me some to review. The last time I had long hair was when I was 16, after the chop I've always kept my locks short.
I choose the colour chocolate, if you are unsure of what colour you want you can always contact halo which I found was very helpful.
The extensions I received were 20" full head clip in Remy human hair in chocolate brown #4

The extensions come in this box pictured above.

28mm long clips with silicon tubing.
The clip is easy to operate you just slide down into your hair and click into place.

In the full head box you get:
4 pieces 2" wide with one clip
2 pieces 6" wide with two clips
Finally 2 pieces 8" wide with three clips
I also got two mini shampoo and conditioners with my extensions.
My first impressions when opening and feeling the hair was; my, how soft! This is 100% human hair, that has been treated and its just how I would like my own hair.I'm working towards this ;)
I wanted these extensions especially for a photo shoot. A couple days before the shoot i started to watch videos showing me how to apply the extensions. I took a big risk when trying these on for the first time, as I left it till the morning of the shoot, I was late for my train, make up done, 10 minutes to get my hair sorted! As I said I have never worn extensions so I was pretty nervous that I'd mess it all up. However i found the whole experience of putting these extensions in well and truly easy! I applied the two widest pieces at the bottom, one 6" in the middle and the smaller pieces around the top layers of my hair. I left one piece out as my hair looked full as it is.If my top layers were longer id of probably used them though.
I am very happy with how they looked, so natural. The photographer didn't even notice that my hair was fake! untill I told him. He thought it was my own :) I'm going to share with you a few pictures of me in the extensions from that shoot. For my next one, I'm going to go for a more wavy look and style the extensions.For before photo's to give you a rough idea how long my hair was before applying them skip to this post
