EDIT: Halo contacted me yesterday to send a replacement – see my follow-up review HERE
I have previously been a big fan of Halo Hair Extensions. A few months ago, they sent me a beautiful set of black hair extensions which I gave a glowing review of on my Youtube channel. When they contacted me again (their staff are lovely, by the way), asking if I would like to do a blog review, I replied saying that I would love to review their feather hair extensions. I saw they they had some beautiful pink ones, and jumped at the chance to try them out.
Here is the website link to the extensions I picked out: http://www.halohairextensions.com/product_details.aspx?prod=341. Don’t they look gorgeous? You can understand why I was so excited. The package arrived this morning (very quickly, I must say!). Unfortunately, when I opened the box I was met with an unpleasant surprise…
Can you see the lovely pink? Hmm. Hidden by an extremely unattractive BROWN feather. If I had paid for this product I would have been horrified. In the product description, the feathers look light, fluffy and are all pink. These are thin, dull and, in the case of the top pink feather, matted and almost greasy-looking. After my initial surprise, I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and try it on in my hair.
I followed the instructions, pinning my hair back and attaching the loop gently through my hair. Unfortunately, the minute I opened the loop, it completely fell off in my hand.
I spent around 5 minutes trying to re-attach the feathers into the loop holder but I had no luck. So, I was left with a relatively ugly and broken product to review. I am not the kind of blogger who takes pleasure in giving out negative feedback – in fact, I feel bad – but there is literally nothing good to say about this product. The company, Halo, are lovely – this product is not. At all.
It retails for £14.99 – I have to reiterate, if I had bought this I would be fuming. Sorry Halo.
Have you had any bad experiences with feather extensions? Let me know!
