Hair Extension Update & FOTD

I've been on another dry spell with makeup. After I created my last dramatic look (Gimme Some Sugar(pill), Baby) I became so drained of ideas. But, I am applying makeup again and here it is! This is another version of my Lusting for Mattes Tutorial

It's been 4 weeks since I first had my extensions installed, and since I have such short hair and the extensions are on the top of my head (instead of the sides, where they're traditionally installed) there's more maintenance. My hair is 3.5 - 4.25" long now and Becca, at The Dreadquaters, was able to add around 25 pinch braids (you'll see what they are in the photos below) and one magenta coloured weft. I have more than twice the amount of hair and it's a few inches longer.

I had a 4" wide medium blonde weft of hair left over from when I was ventilating facial hair, so I used my hair colour (Special Effects Virgin Rose) on it and dyed the top 1.5" black, ombre style. It came out pretty close to my hair colour. She weaved it in about an inch from my hairline and then pinch braided 4 rows behind it.

  1. Can't find remmil blush in amber here. Maybe that color is only available in Canada. How recently have you purchased that color?
