Hairdo Extensions Review

I've had my hair short for a few years now and I love it, but every once in a while I think about buying extensions just to mix things up. I tried the Hairdo extensions and learned a lot from the experience. Read on to see how it went!

*Disclaimer: These products were sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Hairdo offers clip in extensions, ponytails, wigs, and more for an easy way to change up your hair without long-term commitment. I tried the X-Long 22" Curly Extension, Hoop Invisible Extension, and Color 18" Human Hair Highlight Extension.

The Color 18" Human Hair Highlight Extension is a small clip in piece that adds an accent of color. It's best demonstrated by the model in the photos above, as you can see the blond blends into her natural hair.

I received the shade R4/Midnight Brown, which is pretty similar to my natural hair color. I think these are a lot of fun and a great way to add highlights without committing to color at the salon. It's made with 100% human hair and is great quality.

As you can see, this doesn't really work with short hair, but I didn't expect it to. This is definitely a piece for someone who already has long hair but wants to add highlights or lowlights. I also wanted to post this one first because this shot clearly shows the length of my natural hair.

I was hoping that the Hoop Invisible Extension would work the best with my hair, but unfortunately the thickness doesn't match. I tried the R4/Midnight Brown shade, which matched my natural color pretty well. It's made with Tru2Life heat-friendly synthetic hair that can be flat ironed, curled, and blown out. The hair feels very soft and looks like human hair.

This one is really easy to put in. There are two methods provided on the info card, and I chose to clip up some of my hair and then place the hoop around the clipped up part, then as you take down the rest of your hair you can blend it into the extension.

This one didn't exactly work with my current cut, as you can see above. This was just me putting it on quickly, but I think I could take it to my stylist and see if she has any tips on how to wear it better (or maybe she can trim it to fit my cut better). As is, I think it would work best with someone who already has at least shoulder-length hair and is looking to add thickness.

The X-Long 22" Curly Extension ended up working best straight out of the box. I tried the R6 Dark Chocolate shade and it matched pretty well, though it isn't exact (but that can always be fixed with a little dye). It's made with Tru2Life synthetic hair and comes already curled. This is a clip-in extension.

I think this piece has the most potential to work with my hair. It doesn't look like it in the photo, but I have it clipped in pretty close to the top of my scalp, but my cut is still pretty off-balance. Again, I'm going to take this to my stylist and I'm sure she'll be able to help me style it/wear it better.

Bottom Line: The Hairdo extensions are a lot of fun and are a great way to add volume to your hair or quickly change your style. I think the pieces I tried work best with people who have hair a little bit longer than mine, but I could see these working if I bought more than once piece to layer in with my cut. Both the synthetic and natural hair were great quality, and each came with care instructions on how to keep it looking its best.
