Easter Install

Postby Frozen_Toes on Mon Mar 24, 2008 8:59 pm

So the easter Bunny decided it was time for me to re-do my install! So who am I to argue? Please excuse the goofy before pictures, my hubby was 'helping'!! He does all of my installs up to the crown and I look after the crown and the sides. I used about 2 oz of 14" and maybe 2.5 oz of 18" natual straight remy indian installed with LG and Supertape.

My own hair is really fine, very short and quite fluffy. This Indian hair is a bit on the fluffy side but not to bad.

I forgot to take pictures before we had the first row in but I think you'll get the idea of what I have to work with!

This is the 90% finished produt. I still haven't trimmed it yet but that will be a Wednesday job. I think I might even color my own hair a wee bit but we'll see how brave I feel when I get there!!

:D Oh Wow! Frozen...that is quite impressive! You (well, your hubby too) did a great job. The texture and colour seem spot on.

I did an Easter install too, but it ended up being close to a disaster. Long story short, I ended up swooshing a bottle of liquid glue (thank gawd, it wasn't Liquid Gold!) onto my newly installed platinum blonde hair!!! Everything had been going great until that moment. Ugggghhh...I managed to get it all out with the mighty Goo Gone!!! hahah. that stuff rocks. Now, I know it can truly get out anything if you are patient. :lol:

Anyway, back on-topic...your hair is beautiful. Do you mind saying where the Indian hair is from? thanks a lot for sharing.

:>:D<: Thanx Clip! I ordered this hair from Halleycurls.com. She also has a store on ebay. I gave this batch the bleach bath treatment and it turned out really nice.

Update!

Postby Frozen_Toes on Mon Apr 07, 2008 1:09 pm

Okay so went into my hairdresser to have a few little highlights put in. we decided to try and lighten the hair just a little bit at the same time. The color and highlights turned out beautifully. However, I had the most ENORMOUS rats nest/mat in the very back of my head! The 2 of us picked and combed at it for almost 2 hours and I still had to cut out 2 wefts! The wefts came loose from the tape/LG and got hopelessly tangled together when she washed out the color. So this past weekend I had to do a COMPLETE take down and redo it. But I had some silky straight and body wave Bohyme here so I had an excuse to use it. Image

These I took today after trying my hand at razoring/layering! BTW it is WAY harder that I thought to take your own picture in the mirror...lol!!!

What a transformation! You're like me, you go from short to super long!!!
How addictive is that uh?!!
I think the color match could be improved though. I would get rid of the red/lighter strands go for almost all black/dark brown, the color difference is the only thing that could inform you're wearing extensions.
Oh, and I would probably go a little higher with the top wefts, you really need to go high with your weft placement when you have short hair. It is going to help a lot with blending.

Yep I totally agree with you Frenchie! The red really stood out until I did a little blending. It still stands out a little but not as bad (I hope?). I'm a little nervous about going up to high on my crown because I have these 2 nasty double swirls on the 'corners' of my head. How do I add wefts higher up so they don't show? Would you put them on an angle?

I so agree with the cow .licks. I would LOVE to go up higher, but I cannot. Your hair and Frenchie's are the closest to my natural hair. I am going to do a new install tomorrow with my 909 from the hair shop. It is the first install with totally new hair in a long time, so I am a little nervous with the trimming and all. I will try to take pics:)

Your color match is spot on! Great job :rock:

Wow, you do a great job with your installs Frozen. Very beautiful!
Was the rat's nest due to the hair? Was it really old, or is it just a brand we should stay away from?

This was last years Easter install, and I haven't gone back to being that dark since. It was really hard for me to maintain since my natural color is so much lighter. I can't believe how much my hair has grown in a year. Wow!! Its nice to see that I am making a little headway! But I'm still not giving up my extensions... :LOL:

Nicole, I haven't ever had the 909 tangle, BUT i do notice when I try to unwrap it it seems like it has been brushed together. That makes no sense, but I can't just pull it apart either. I usually have to give it a little run through with my fingers to get it to release from the rest of the weft. What color did you get? Mine has always been dark and auburn colors. It could be old stock too.

That's good to hear that it is not just mine. I installed today and the color is perfect. The texture of the hair is different from what I am used to. I have had Indian for about a year with a little bohyme added to the mix. What exactly is European hair? So far I like the install and blending. I went to a wedding and curled it with a large barreled curling iron, but it fell out rather quickly. It is SO humid here :roll:

P.S. The liquid gold that I got when I ordered from them IS the original. I forgot how thick the original is. I should probably order a few more.
