Review: Halo Feather Hair Extension in Pink

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…

Halo Feather Extensions in Pink

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.

Halo Feather Extensions in Pink Broken Loop

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!

Stay Creative,

        It is a shame, especially when you are selling such a product for 15 pounds!

      Thanks Harriet! It’s hard sometimes to be honest without sounding like a bitch, but you’ve got to tell the truth! xx

    And we’re going to fix it! No idea how you’ve ended up with a brown feather as well! I think we need to try this again and we’ll send you another out immediately!

    I cant’t believe this. They look better on the site. I love the fact that at least you did not lie about the product.

    I don’t really get feather extensions either, so I was looking forward to this review when i saw the email! Ah well. I’m buying the pink and the black hair extensions so hopefully those will be better!
