Yesterday my colleagues and I were strolling towards the subway at the end of a long day and the topic of hair came up, as it’s wont to do among three image-obsessed twenty-somethings. One of us was moaning about her hair–curly but thin–while the other two tried hopelessly to convince her that she’s adorable the way she is. Try as we might, we could not dissuade her from her determination to seek out hair extensions. The problem with girls is, once we have a new beauty solution in mind, it’s tough to kill the lingering hope that it might be the one answer we need. In other words, it was impossible to dissuade our young comerade, but even as we tried, I wondered why we should be. Friends, some thoughts from either side of the fence:
|Beautiful long hair always rocks the runways|
Hair extensions will make you feel prettier. Nothing gives a girl confidence like long, bouncy hair. And nothing makes a boy swoon like it either.
Extensions can be pricey, damage your hair, and become a nightmare to keep up. Then there’s the fact that you have fake hair on your head.
|This is downright creepy, no?|
We convinced our little cutie that while she might covet long and luscious locks, there is no sense in spending the time and money, or causing the damage necessary for traditional extensions. However, here is a super-cute alternative that can be inserted for a night–or a weekend. First-date ready, without the regret!
|Clip-on extensions are cheap, quick, and cute!|
