Taylor Swift Transformation Tutorial with AbHair.com

13 comments:
 
About two weeks ago one of my personal beauty dreams finally came true! Allow me to elaborate; for years I have been lusting after Remy Hair Extensions, but every time I went to actually buy some I was so overwhelmed by all the brands and types and lengths and it was just too much to process so I'd freak out and give up. Not to mention the price, yikes! Some of those bad boys were like 200+ dollars. Ouch!


Well, just the other day a company called AbHair.com contacted me and asked if I'd like to try out some of theirs. Oh my god, I was so excited I can't even explain. Here. Here's a little .gif story to better illustrate my reaction process: When I first got the offer I was like, then when they actually arrived I was like, and when I put them in and saw how gorgeous they were I was like and then I spent the rest of the day walking around my apartment like. Eventually I settled down and got to work reviewing the extensions and then putting them to good use, using them to transform my limp straight hair into some gorgeously girly Taylor Swift curls. Then of course I had to do some makeup to go along with the hair makeover too. Anyways, you'll find it all in the post below. Enjoy!


AbHair.com is a hair products website that sells both human & synthetic hair in the form of wigs, extensions, hair pieces, etc plus a whole host of hair products, tools and accessories. They ship internationally and the prices on their site range from as low as a few dollars to as high as a couple hundred dollars, depending on the product; so you're definitely going to find something in your personal price range/budget. They also offer lots of discount & coupon codes and you can get 15% off any order with the Pigments & Palettes exclusive code: MEREDITH15


WHAT YOU GET: I ordered the 24" 9-Piece Silky Straight Remy Human Hair Clip in Extensions in Light Chestnut, which you can see here. This set comes with nine different wefts of four different lengths: One 9" weft with 4 clips, one 7" weft with three clips, two 5" wefts with two clips each, and five 1.5" wefts with one clip each. My hair is too thin to support all nine at once but depending on the style I'm going for I use a different combination of 5-6 of them at a time. If nine pieces is too many, they also come in 7 piece sets as well. Here's all nine pieces laid out:



COST: The longer the extensions, the higher the cost. As mine were 24" (which is like suuuuuper long) they retail for around $120, but a 15" pair will only set you back around $40.00. Shipping is free for US orders over $49.00 and for international orders over $79.00. You can also get 15% off your order with the coupon code MEREDITH15


COLORS & STYLES: The extensions come in 8 possible lengths (14", 15", 16", 18", 20", 22", 24", 26") and two different styles (straight & curly/wavy). There are 12 different colors to choose from but if you're ordering the human hair extensions (which I recommend), you can always dye them any color you want so don't worry if they don't have an exact match. I was really surprised at how well mine matched my hair color, I can't even tell the difference between my real hair and my extensions once they are in. They look and feel SO natural it's crazy.


Honestly, now that I have them I'm not sure how I ever lived without them! I don't have any problems growing my hair long but it's never had any body or volume of any kind. Well NOT ANYMORE, bitches! Now I've got the Disney Princess hair I've always dreamed of and it feels so right. 

Once I recovered from my happiness coma and stopped staring lovingly at my new hair in the mirror I figured I'd do a video review of these lovely locks so here you have it.


I styled them into big bouncy Taylor Swift curls which is something I've always wanted to try but was never able to achieve due to my fine, limp hair. Here's a short review of the hair extensions, plus a quick tutorial on how to install and style them. It only takes a few minute to learn the basic techniques and then you can have fun experimenting with different ways to wear them. Here's what I did:



I also did a pretty Taylor Swift inspired look to go along with my new Taylor Swift/Disney Princess hair. It's really very simple and pretty universally flattering so it will suit just about anyone. Can't go wrong with a simple 50's inspired look. Here's some photos, and you can see the makeup tutorial at the end of them. Enjoy!







With just a little bit of makeup and a lot of extra hair, I was able to transform myself into Taylor's signature sweetheart style, complete with her romantic loose curls, gorgeous red lips and super soft eye makeup with flirty lashes. Not a style I wear often but I really do love it now that I've given it a go. Might have to make it a more common occurrence! 


Um. I've rambled enough, so if I had to sum up my feelings about my new extensions as succinctly as possible then here goes:


Thumbs up guys. Effing obsessed with these things. Definitely check out abhair.com to see which ones suit you best and don't forget to use the 15% coupon code: MEREDITH15 if you do decide to buy some which I hope you do. Then we can both be this happy together.

  2. I've always been curious about extensions- for more volume as opposed to length- and these look so amazing and more importantly easy to use! I am for sure going to be looking into these.

    1. I'm exactly the same, I need all the help in the volume department that I can get and these babies delivered 100%! Ugh, it's like, where have you been all my life and how can I permanently fuse you to my skull. It feels like the hair I should have been born with. Haha, maybe a bit dramatic but you get the point.
