|My Pixie Crop|
Of course this was over 9 years ago and the process of adding hair is far more sophisticated these days! I see that cold fusion and micro loop are the way forward for length and body with minimal damage to your own hair. These will last until they grow out so a maintenance programme is needed to keep them looking good. The 'clip in' are a favourite with most of my clients as they are so widely available,Dirty Looks are good quality. They come in every shade under the sun so it is easy to find some to exactly match your own hair colour. You can take them out easily after your event and (if put in properly) will stay put throughout the day and night. For up dos I often use hair-pads as these are fantastic for giving a shape without too much back-combing and help create the illusion of long, thick hair.
Whether you need any of the above or not, you should start a nourishing care programme for your hair asap as this will help make any style look fantastic - think Kate Middleton bouncey waves! I love Kerastase products and recommend them to all my clients, in particular the Elixer Ultime. It's a definite for my kit bag.
Some 'enhanced' styles from my portfolio:
See!! You just can't tell! So it is possible to achieve the look you want (with a little help!) .....Who knows what I would've ended up with had all this been around when I got married :-)
Although I must say that I did love my pixie crop :-)
