Last week we had the fun opportunity to go on CT Style and share a “pretty” Hair & Make Up look for Halloween. Pretty is what we do so it was fun to create a “fairy” look and showcase a different side of Halloween. One a little less scary.
Ashley Matta of Beauty Entourage created the make up for the look. Elena, one of our own artists, happily became our muse!
Our call time was 8 am so that meant hair and make up started at 5 am before we headed to the studio!
Make Up was complete so it was time to do the hair. Elena has long gorgeous hair but what kind of fairy princess would she be if she didn’t have even more long gorgeous hair.
We were ready to head to the studio!
They completely changed the set since we were there last and the segment was LIVE! I have to say though, I loved the new look and LIVE Tv.. ummm sure no pressure!
It was fun watching the behind the scenes while we waited our turn to go on.
Then it was our turn!!
Here is the full video of our segment….
As always a BIG thank you to CT Style for having us on. It is always a pleasure. Congrats to Teresa on her new baby!! She looked great her first week back. It was also fun meeting Ryan her new co host. He was great!

There are so many different options on Hair Extensions that each one needs it own blog just to explain them!
Today we wanted to talk about Clip in Extensions because they are the most popular with our brides and clients booking for events. Clip Extensions are a temporary option that can be put in by a stylist or yourself at any given time. They can also be removed at your convenience within 24 hrs of wearing them. I say 24 hrs or even less because they can shift, slide down, and even come out if you try to wear them longer. They be uncomfortable to sleep in too but, I won’t say I have never done it!
I have to admit, I have little obsession with hair extensions. I promise you will too if you decide to go with them! If done right and if you have the right hair, the options are amazing! SO are the results. If you have had a bad experience or have heard of one, it is likely due to the quality of the hair or lack of experience from the professional that recommended or did them.
I became certified and trained in extensions about 10 years ago and I always worked with extensions in my career whether it was applying them or coloring them. For years My team and I customized everything from not just the color but the thickness. The thickness makes ALL the difference on if the extensions look real or not. For clip in extensions that is also a big factor. Often clip in extensions are single wefted. Basically if you hold up one strand of extensions and you can see gaps or it’s so thin you can read a paper through it, then they are likely single wefted. The average person needs double wefted for proper blending. When working with clip ins, it is also ideal to find the extensions that have the clips already sewn on. You can sew them on yourself but, it may be difficult to do and you run the risk of them not being done properly.
The clip in extension line we carry is our own line of extensions called Hair Extension Junkie. Go figure! We love them! They are double wefted extensions that are sometimes double or triple the thickness depending on the length. We custom color the extensions for a perfect match and have them ready the day of the wedding.
Care: Clip in Extension’s longevity depend on how often they are being used and washed. On average, they last up to 1 year if used regularly. The less heat used on them the better. If you like to flat iron or curl your extensions then, I would recommend air drying them before heat styling. They should be hand washed with moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. A leave in conditioner may be used, detangle, lay flat to air dry
Here is a fun video we created on the spot for one of our bride’s to see the process. She had long hair so, she was just looking for thickness. The extensions were also custom colored by one of our team members Carly McKay, Styling By: Ashley Stone.
This is what it’s like to add in Hair Extensions. We customize and color them for our clients. Great Job Carly for our clients extensions and hair color! Styling by Ashley Stone
