Let's talk Star Style Hair


So today I want to talk about some hair I bought from Aliexpress but first I want to say that anyone can get hair extensions. There are so many different types of hair extensions to help you achieve the perfect looks you're trying to get from volume to length to just a safe and easy way to do whatever it is you want to hair without doing it to your own hair(like what I did). There are also so many different types of ways to have hair installed or added, from wearing wigs, halos, clips ins to sew ins, fusions and even glue ins. So don't think that you can't get that full, curly, waist length hair just because you have thin, straight, short or even no hair because anything is possible with the right stylist and the right hair.

So back on topic I ordered some hair from Aliexpress a couple months ago. If you haven't heard of Aliexpress, is a great place to get things for a really affordable price, most things come from overseas and you also have to be careful because sometimes it's hit and miss and luckily for me I scored.

I purchased my hair from Star Style Hair, I purchased the 3pc Brazilian body wave in 20",22", and 24" for $149.30. Now with Aliexpress prices are always changing some days it's cheap some days they want your first born but for the most part Stay Style Hair's prices have always been affordable and that's one of the main reason's I purchased from them. Another reason was because the customer service rocked, Stephanie answered all of my questions and helped me decide what hair would be good for me because I'm only 5'2" and I wanted long hair but I didn't want hair like Rapunzel.

What surprised me was shipping was so fast, you would think that it came from down the street. I ordered on a Saturday around noon and got it that Monday at 3:45 pm! Makes me wonder what is taking my rhinestones and clothes so long to get to me.

So when I opened my yellow package from DHL inside was my hair, 4 flexirods and a card with instructions for hair maintenance.
 The first thing I noticed was the hair was so soft, I kept running my fingers through the hair smiling like a crazy women. The next thing I noticed was it had a bit of a beauty shop hair smell, but let's be honest most hair smells like that and I'd be a bit worried if it didn't or had a bad smell to it.

After running my fingers through it a million times I washed the hair using Oganix's Kukui Oil shampoo and conditioner which I am totally in love with.

After that I noticed it was lighter than my hair so I dyed the hair with Dark & Lovely's Jet Black and after that I figured with the Makeup Show happening soon I might as well go big or go home so in the end I bleached it and threw some Ion and Beyond the Zone that I purchased at Sally's on it. I used Ion's Color Brilliance Brights in Aqua, Sky Blue, and fushcia and Beyond the Zone's Color Jam in Tripped Up Turquoises and Raspberry Kamikazie.

After dying, bleaching and coloring the hair it was still soft and it took the bleaching and coloring very well. I was surprised that the hair still had most of it's wave patten.

After all that I took my hair to Ty at Extend Your Beauty to have her sew it in. If you are ever in the Ocala, Florida area you really have to check her out, she does amazing hair and just like hair extensions she does everyone's hair doesn't matter if you are White, Asian, Black, Indian, etc. she can take care of you and make sure you look beautiful when you walk out her door, with any means necessary.

Okay to be honest she doesn't put an iron on just anyone's head I just already have a lot of hair so this helps lay the braids flat, I just found it hilarious.

For this installment we went with a versatile sew in so that way I can throw it up in a bun or ponytail.
In the end it's true what they say when you get your hair done you feel like a new person. I can honestly say I was loving it.
Ty did an amazing job and the hair was absolutely amazing. Minimal hair shedding, the only time I had tangles is when I had hair spray in my hair and most of the time it was my own hair that was in the no no. For me maintaining the hair is the most important thing especially if you plan on using it over and over you want it to last, so I co-washed my hair every 1-2 weeks, deep conditioned the hair like it was own, and I actually only used a flat iron on this hair 3 times, when I got it done and after I washed it.
What I loved about this hair is it was so easy to style. The Brazilian body wave really held a curl well and I fell in love with flexirods. Seriously all I did was use some Motion's Foaming hair wrap put flexirods in and I just woke up like this... well the hair at least after taking the flexirods out and running some my fingers through my hair.
I also loved just having it down and off the shoulder with the colors it was so much fun.
All in all I really enjoyed this hair, I was able to do things to it that I'm afraid to do to my own hair in fear of damaging it so this is a safe way for me to bleach, chop, color and do what I want. I can't wait till I have it put in again I just need to figure out what I want to do next. I also what to try out Star Styles Hair's curly hair, there are so many options!

So have you ever had extensions? If you could have any hair style, what hair style would you choose? Let me know!
