Would you have hair extensions?

With fine wispy hair that I'm sure has grown no thicker since I was a baby, I was keen to take the plunge and try hair extensions. Here's how I got on.

Whether it’s a luxury treat, or your hair needs a little extra volume or you’re just regretting having a few extra inches chopped off; most of us have considered getting hair extensions. We’ve all had that moment where we dare ourselves to have ‘the chop’ and it’s always a 50/50 chance of love or hate. And even if you love the bob, there comes a day when you wish you had longer, flowing locks to simply shove up in a messy bun.

Extensions are becoming increasingly popular as they do all sorts of wonders for a range of hair types – volumize, thicken, lengthen –  you name it, they do it; and, if they’re done well, you can’t even notice them, they just look super natural! It’s got to be one of the biggest hair trends and being surrounded by constant instas of the perfect hair is obviously going to make it a major want (Kardashians – I’m not looking at you!)

Extensions by Debbi is a Northants mobile goddess, a hair hero at your doorstep, if you like. She’s had years of experience so really knows the ins and outs of extensions and, to top it off, she’s just genuinely lovely. Debbi offers an extensive range of Hair Extensions and personally tailors a package to suit you; whether this is Micro Rings, Strand by Strand, Pre Bonds or Micro Weft.

My hair is VERY thin and whispy and i’ve tried two sets of hair extensions with Debbi. One to thicken and one to lengthen.


This is before the thickening session. My hair was blondie brown and I wanted to go back to my more choclatey/reddy roots. And guess what? Debbi picks out hair in all of the colours you want, so no trip to a salon for foils! Debbi did mine with the Racoon hot fusion method, and OMG, I left with a heavenly head of hair. This Bespoke method involves taking individual strands of hair to create  a professional hair extension bonding and just LOOK AT IT!

It took my hair from wispy-fine to thick luscious locks in two hours and the small bonds can be an exact colour match or with a few highlights and lowlights. Either way, they all leave a very natural result.

In terms of how it feels, it takes a while to get used to when sleeping because you can feel the bonds a bit, and brushing is more of an ordeal as you can’t just whip a brush through your knots like before (just me?)…They’re a bit more work than just having your own hair; but that’s mostly because it takes me two minutes to dry my own hair, so thin is it! But the extensions proved both durable and versatile and you can keep them in and just get updated as you would normal hairdressing visits.

Extensions by Debbi does more than just the insta famous locks; her hair loss system is a real confidence booster. Her Secret Parting treatment will give the extra volume and boost required and truly transform a look (a great solution for Cancer patients and those suffering with all kinds of hair loss). Debbi’s passion for making her clients feel fabulous comes across in her work ethic, and she’s a go-to for a range of reasons; not least because she’s really lovely.

4 reasons to use Debbi and swish that pony tail:

  • She has certificates in all the latest Hair Extension methods and is fully insured – she knows what she’s doing basically.
  • Debbi is a Member of the Freelance Hairdressers Association.
  • There’s a free consultation in your own home before you start –  just think of the ease – no queuing, parking or privacy problems. It’s all about you, how luxurious!
  • She only uses the very best quality remy hair at affordable prices. This is the finest quality of human hair, so top notch locks at a reasonable price.

A full set of extensions starts at £275 and a part head is from £90.
