Irresistible Me Hair Royal Remy Hair Extension Review

*Press Sample

I recently was contacted by Irresistible Me to see if I would like to review one of their products. I jumped on the chance to do something different on the blog and I have always wanted to try out hair extensions. My hair is thin and takes forever to grow so I was hoping these extensions would give me a fuller look in addition to length, and I was not disappointed.

If you want to see what my "normal" hair looks like you can hop over to my Instagram.

Anyway, let's take a look at how I was rocking these extensions over the weekend!

I LOVE THESE!!!! I wore them all weekend and felt so confident in my look while I was wearing them.  The color of the extensions is slightly lighter than my natural color, but lucky me, I had highlights that I was letting grow out so these blended PERFECTLY. I can't wait to try these out for the workday sometime soon!

Some information about the hair extensions that I received:

  • Type: Royal Remy
  • Color: Ash Blonde
  • Length: 14"
  • Weight: 200g
In the box I received numerous clip in extensions; 1 four clip waft, 2 three clip wafts, 4 two clip wafts, and 2 one clip wafts. One waft came packaged separately so that the user could test the color before opening up the whole package. I really liked this feature, because had a ordered a different shade that didn't match so well, the large bundle would still be able to be used again if I had to return them. 

Given my hair was so thin, I found I didn't even need to use all of the wafts. In the pictures and what I ended up wearing out all weekend, was 1 four clip, 1 three clip and 2 single clips; you really do get a lot of hair for your money. Since the extensions are made from 100% real human hair, you and wash and style them as you would your own hair! 

Here is some additional information about the Royal Remy line from Irresistible Me: "Royal Remy is our premium line of clip-in hair extensions. We use top of the line hair and a special treatment unique to Irresistible Me to add extra silkiness and durability and make these the best hair extensions you can find. The thickness of the hair is amazing – it’s the same from the top to the bottom of the weft which will provide a lot of body and bounce while wearing them. This line is very easy to blend with your own hair and can be very easily styled, cut, colored and curled. Ultimately, the Royal Remy hair will last longer and is the closest match you can find to completely unprocessed hair. If you’re looking for longevity and volume, the Royal Remy line is the best choice you could make. "

I would absolutely recommend these extensions to anyone and everyone looking for an easy way to switch up your hair for anything from a special event to daily wear. If extensions aren't your thing, Irresistible Me also has styling toolshair care products and accessories

As the exclusive nail sponsor of Stella McCartney Collections in 2016, Sally Hansen freshened up the look, on the Stella McCartney Summer 2016 catwalk in Paris Fashion Week, with a subtle and modern nude nail. To accessorize the effortlessly elegant in the designer’s collection, Sally Hansen’s Global Color Ambassador Madeline Poole elevated bare nails by using an understated sheer polish that sent clean nudes down the runway.

Revealing the nude nail’s unexpected potential for uniqueness, Madeline Poole used two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in “Arm Candy,” maintaining a neutral aesthetic.

“We wanted to reflect and compliment the explosion of colour, energy and movement within the collection by celebrating a true summer beauty look that is fresh and natural, while also embracing the individuality of women” – says Stella McCartney
“We're using a sheer pale pink "Arm Candy" for Stella's SS16 show. Stella's whimsical and mixed use of color and pattern need a nail that's understated and low maintenance. This is a look that anyone can wear - a sheer polish looks refined and subtle on any shape nail bed and any skin tone. "Arm Candy" leaves a bit of the natural nail showing through so it creates a custom finish for each girl.” – says Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador.


Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Arm Candy

Sally Hansen’s award-winning Complete Salon Manicure collection infuses trend-setting shades with an expert quality formula to deliver salon-caliber results. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure delivers seven salon manicure steps in one bottle. Chip resistant strength joins gel-quality shine. Must-have color meets nourishing benefits. Plus, a built-in base and top coat, it’s everything you need to achieve a professional manicure at home.

An explosion of colour, energy and movement. A true celebration of summer, exuding a vivacious and liberated spirit.
A feeling of fearlessness is expressed through the unexpected layering of masculine bold checks and stripes to create a play on feminine transparency with rich andgraphic textures.
Contrast color pleated dresses quiver and float in sharp sculptural layers of bright blue, spring green, chili redand pink. Either thigh-skimming or floor-grazing, their engineered hemlines rise and fall to reveal tempting flashes of leg.
Knitwear sits close to the skin. Polo tops in wrapping shapes with sporty striped edging. Pleated ribs with cut-aways stretch to reveal slices of sky, berry and mint. Raw indigo denim is highly structured with visible white stitching, whilst two-toned ribs with undulating movement feature extreme fringing. 
Clean tailoring reflects the ease of summer in dusty rose, tan and black. Trousers are wide, yet the silhouette is elongated and free, retaining a sensual connection to the body. Monochrome statements in organic cotton piqué shirting and black summer knit tailoring. Scoop necklines expose and accentuate the female form.
Inspired by abstract sculptures, ribbons are distilled into primitive swirls and refined spirals layered on embroidered mesh in pure white and black, or chili red on berry. 
A unique airtex effect is created using transparent eyelet embroidery. Asymmetric or floor length, they stand out in acid shades of lemon, bright orange, cobalt blue, and black and white.
Accessories include a modern take on the Riviera opensandals with sporty soles. Cherry tinted sustainable wooden platform clogs in nude, tan and black. Wicker and alter nappa bags with round buckles and gold chainmail. Oversize aviator sunglasses with a square color contrasted detail, in a palette that compliments the tones of the season.
