Two years ago you were flush – you sported the YSL Downtown, you kicked up your heels in the season’s statement shoe, and you didn’t blink twice at the haute salon as you spent hundreds of dollars to mimic the Beckham and Holmes bob. Ah, the good old days of delicious, indulgent consumption! But after shrieking in horror at your 401k statement, and realizing it’s no longer fabulous to carry five-figure credit card debt, you’ve decided to scale back. You dust off the Downtown and wear it anew (it’s practically vintage!) and chicly balk at the Balmain bootie’s $2,000 price tag, opting for the Zara version because you’ve mastered mixing high and low. And when you spy Katie Holmes at the Japan Valkeryie premiere with long, voluminous
waves, reminiscent of a pre-Scientology Cruise with the volume turned up, you forgo the expensive salon visit to score hair extensions that won’t break the bank.
When you think of hair extensions, you imagine clumps of hair, visible tracks and rows – telltale signs that you’re wearing fake hair. However, renowned celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson has developed an affordable, lightweight line of synthetic hair extensions that are virtually undetectable due to the contoured mesh underlining that not only stretches based on the natural curvature of your head, but allows you to incorporate your natural hair through open slots for a more natural look. The collection is Memory Style-able and Heat Style-able, enabling you to style your hair with hot rollers, curling irons or straighteners up to 320 degrees (medium heat-setting).
The Clip-In System comes in the following colors:
• Reese – Light Medium Golden Blonde
• Lindsey – Honey/Strawberry Blonde
• Jennifer – Light Blondish/Brown
• Julia – Warm Caramel/Medium Brown
• Marcia – Copper/Golden Red
• Angelina – Chocolate/Dark Brown
• Debra – Rich Red/Auburn
• Gabrielle – Darkest Espresso Brown
So if you’re looking to get glam for an evening out with the girls or you’re seeking to create your fairytale wedding look on a budget, consider Ted Gibson’s fabulous and unbelievably natural-looking hair extensions.
