I have been so into the new trend of bold hair color streaks. Every time I see a celebrity with one of the new colored 'do's in a magazine, I want it. But let's face it, most of us can't jump on the bandwagon for a lot of reasons - time, maintenance, expense... I may work in a creative field, but as much as I loved Kate Bosworth's blue dipped streaks, I don't know if I can pull them off on a permanent basis, or how they'd go over at work. (Plus, I have to admit, after my traumatic Sun-In experience in 7th grade, I am loathe to play around with anything permanent that isn't done by a professional or even if it is, that could potentially really mess up my normal dark brown shade). That's why I'm loving Milani Hair's Clip In Hair Extensions. They're available in five different funky shades - Purple, Blue, Green, Fuchsia and Red - and at only $14.99, they couldn't be more affordable. Each package has two strips of 20" length hair in it - it's a good length for those of us with long hair, but if your hair is shorter, it's easy to cut to your perfect length. Even better is how easy they are to use. So, so simple. The top of each strip has a clip on it that functions exactly like a barrette - you snap it open, then position it in your hair, then just snap it closed. It is literally impossible to mess up. I'm terrible at doing my own hair (seriously, if I try to do anything fancy, it looks like I let a kindergartner wield the brush) and even I mastered this in under a minute. The shades themselves are super bright and fun too. I tried Purple and Red and I love the way they complement my dark brown locks and give it a fun pop of color. Plus, the fact that they're temporary makes them even more fun to play with. I can throw them in my bag and just clip them in after work if I'm going to happy hour or out with friends. I might have to pick up the rest of the shades and keep them around, just because you never know when you're gonna want to channel your inner wild child. So fun!
