“Over the years, Victoria Beckham has set a precedent in being a leader in hair trends in the main stream. Again she has changed her look dropping extensions while holidaying in Cannes. I like it. Visually, the extensions aren’t too thick as they were in 2006 when the whole ‘WAG’ movement kicked and which Victoria was at the forefront of. They now look more natural and most importantly, healthy.
The key to wearing extensions is having longer layers so the whole look blends in and looks real. Victoria will have waited until her layers were long enough before she had this done. For permanent extensions you have to get them done professionally, however you can put temporary ones in yourself or with the help of a friend. I’m going to take you through Victoria Beckham’s new look by getting exactly the same result using temporary hair extensions.”
Firstly, you need to buy your extensions. Real hair is better but is pricier: HairRaisers is the best brand. A full packet – which is what Victoria will have used – is around £70.00.
With synthetic extensions, you cannot straighten or tong them as it will melt. They come in at around half the amount or even cheaper.
I use real hair and to begin you need to decide how thick u want them. I always double up because you can always slice away any hair you don’t want but it’s very difficult to add to it if you want more.
To double up, measure the extension against your head and cut it where you want to begin and end. Do this twice and sow the extensions together. Wash the extensions to get the shiny gloss off them. Shampoo as you would but make sure you don’t get the bind wet at the top.
