I absolutely adore my Hotlox hair extensions! And through years of wearing various types of extensions for jobs as well as on a day to day basis I would definitely recommend these extensions and Anna at Hotlox is the best in the business!
After years of wearing clip ins I decided to go for it & get proper bonded extensions, I was worried about how they would affect the condition of my hair seeing as I’ve been dying it blonde for years & I use a lot of heat on it, so I had been hesitant to get them in incase they damaged my hair.
After seeing the pre bonded Hotlox hair extensions in many of my friend’s hair and also the girls that I work with, I couldn’t believe how natural they looked and I had to get a set done myself!
I had seen pictures of the before and after effects of the extensions and they really made such a difference to the girls’ appearance, I also saw that the up keep on them was simple and there was no need for a top up either in between instalments which is great. They are also very reasonably priced compared to competitors at €240 for a half a head which is plenty for most people or €270 for a full head which I went for, they also provide real hair clip in extension pieces that come in a range of prices, these are much better than any other clip in I’ve tried before, the hair is a very high quality and really thick! I got my first set of Hotlox pre bonded full head of extensions just before Christmas of 2011 by Anna I got about 4 different shades of blonde put in to match my hair perfectly, I didn’t get them trimmed and left them at their full length of 22inches and the result was the picture above by Kieran O’Donoghue
Here’s a before and after photo of them so you can really see the difference they make!
I found them very easy to manage I put them in a loose plait every night before I went to sleep to keep the hair good and I found them simple to style, the good thing about styling them is that they hold curls very well and will last you the next day too! It’s key not to wash them too much and if needs be just wash the top of your hair. I got my new set about 2 weeks ago now so they lasted me just over 4 months which is really good for extensions and during that time I didn’t lose any bonds and I didn’t have a problem with shedding at all!
Removal was very easy, I put baby oil on the bonds a couple of hours before I went in to Anna and she had them all taken out in less than an hour it wasn’t painful and I didn’t lose a strand of my own hair! I was surprised at how much my hair had grown and it hadn’t damaged my hair at all and I was only getting a t-bar of colour done not my whole head because you can’t see your hair at the back so it’s great to give your hair a break from the colour! The minute I had them out I wanted them back in straight away they really are addictive! The following day I got a new full head of pre bonded extensions by Anna at Hotlox this time we used 4 different shades of blonde again but we left out the lightest shade to give a darker look for a change we also cut a few inches off them and left them quite blunt at the ends to give a fuller look.
I’ve also used Hotlox clip ins which are human hair and the quality in them is amazing. They come in a range of colours so they blend really well and i found them very easy to style with ghd , curling tongs or rollers just as you would style your own hair as can be seen in the following pics!
So if anyone is thinking of getting bonded extensions put in or maybe looking for a clip in hair piece for extra length or volume just drop into Anna at Hotlox for a consultation and she’s sure to have your hair looking better than ever!
