The Rumors Are True! I Have New Hair!

As I'm sure everyone knows, I've been growing my hair for my upcoming September 15th nuptials. Needless to say, my hair, which grows like an absolute weed, is now almost at shoulder level. (Well, the spot where your neck meets the top of your shoulders anyway.)

Me, sitting at my desk at the office.
The other weekend, Allan and I went to Calgary to visit my sister and her boyfriend for a few days.  During this time, the plan was for my sister to color/trim my hair and assist me in buying some extensions.  See, I've always thought I wanted long hair for my wedding and decided the easiest way to achieve this was with clip-ins.  Since it was my first time EVER buying them, I wanted my sister to be there as she would be the person to cut/color and style them for me.  So, we did just that and here's a look at me with some extra long locks...

Huge change right?
I should mention that my sister is a FANTASTIC colorist as the extensions we bought were highlighted with multi-colors and she was able to achieve the same look on my natural hair.  However, after all this time, effort and money, I'm starting to think that I prefer my hair shorter for the wedding.  I'm really undecided...

Have any of you ladies worn clip-in extensions before?  What are your thoughts on wearing them for a big event?



  1. You look beautiful, love it:)

  2. I love your new look! It's amazing what you can do with your hair! The color is awesome! I've never had extensions before... not sure if they would work with my crazy, curly hair. xo

  3. WHOA! Those look so natural!!! Usually I think clip ins look kind of tacky, but yours are amazing!!!

    That are beyond gorgeous with shorter hair! I think you should totally rock it on your wedding day. Just my two cents :)

  4. Your short hair is so pretty, I would go for natural. Are Laura is saying as well. You should rock it on your wedding day. :)

  5. Thanks so much ladies for your input!! I'm definitely thinking that rocking the short hair for the day of is the way to go!!


  6. they look so great!!! I love extensions, but I don't know if I'd wear them to my wedding. Just because I think I'd spend the whole night panicking and worrying that one of the clips or something is showing or that one of the strands is going to fall out and into someone's drink!

  7. I can't get over how natural the extensions look!
    and you definitely suit long hair - it looks beautiful on you :)

  8. I absolutely adore your hair in the first shot! It looks gorgeous long, but so sassy when it's short. :)


Thanks for the love!...XO Christina
