I have never been that girl that can do amazing things with her hair. I can do basic plaits, buns or curling but I would really love to be able to French plait or braid my hair properly. If there was a workshop on how to do this I would definitely be the first to sign up! To add to this, my hair is really fine and it’s is not the easiest to style. As soon as I step out the front door it becomes a bit of a wild mess so I’m always on the look out for easy tricks to make my hair more interesting.
With the options of what I am able to achieve myself being pretty limited, I was really excited to try out the clip in hair pieces from LullaBellz and to see the difference that they would make to my hair. I was really impressed with these products and I had to write a blog post to share these with you.
Clip in hair – the styles
There are a few options of clip in hair pieces on their website to choose from – from long lengths, shorter lengths and pre-styled/curled hair. I wanted to try a natural looking style but something that would give my hair a bit of a boost in terms of volume and length. So I decided to go for the Super thick 22″ 5 piece clip in sets in both the crimped wavy and the straight options to test them both out.
These kits include 5 pieces of premium synthetic hair that clip into your hair. 3 wider pieces clip in at the back of your hair and 2 narrow pieces clip in at the side to frame your face and give all over length and volume. They’re pre-styled so you can literally clip them in and you’re good to go.
Choosing the colour
I have dark brown hair and this is exactly the shade that I chose from the colour chart, but there are 25 shades in total to choose from. I hoped for the best with the colour I had selected as it is not always easy to tell when ordering online, but luckily the colour was perfect for me. If you are really stuck and unsure which one to go for though, LullaBellz offer a free colour match service. All you need to do is send them a photograph and they will help you to choose the shade they think would be the closest match to your natural hair colour.
Quality and overall look
I have tried clip in hair pieces in the past and not been impressed with the quality. As soon as I took these out of the packet I was instantly impressed with the feel and quality of the hair. Considering these are synthetic pieces, they don’t feel plastic, overly shiny or artificial which is great. If you do find them on the shiny side though, you can add a bit of dry shampoo to them which will reduce this easily. I brushed each piece as soon as I took them out of the packaging as they can get tangled up. There was some slight fall out but this was expected and nothing to be worried about.
Here is the before picture of my natural hair:
Here is the transformation with both the straight and wavy pieces added to my hair:
These clip in hair pieces can be washed with hair extensions shampoo and conditioner and then left to dry naturally. It is also recommended that you store these on a hair extensions hanger to avoid tangling. LullaBellz sell hair wardrobe hanging bags on their website for this reason which I think is such a fab idea. You can brush them by using a soft bristle brush when brushing/detangling. I used a Tangle teaser brush which worked fine. These hair pieces are also heat resistant up to 180 degrees but there are a good range of styles available, so you can buy exactly what you want without the need to re-style the hair.
Worth the money?
The 5 piece clip in extensions sets are £28 which is a good price for the quality. I was lucky to get these discounted during a promotion so keep an eye out for their promotions. As I have such fine hair, I do find that wearing all 5 pieces a little bit heavy. I would mainly wear these for a night out or an event rather than every day use. However, if you have thicker hair you will find these easy to wear.
LullaBellz also sell a range of other hair pieces such as buns, pre made plaits and wigs. I really want to try out the wig selection and that’s next on my list of things to do. Look out for future blog posts on those!
I hope you enjoyed hearing my thoughts on the LullaBellz clip in hair pieces. Have you tried them before? I would love to hear what you tried and how you got on with them!
