Inspired by one of the pictures on my Pinterest board, I decided to re-create this flower liner look using my NYX Vivid Brights liner. This was definitely fun to do, and I can see myself wearing this out for music festivals! I think the hair also makes the whole look complete (keep watching until the end for a short tutorial on how I create the texture waves).
Today’s post is an Irresistible Me Hair Extension review! This is my first encounter with a hair extension on myself, so it was an interesting experience. I have had to put hair extension on clients, mostly brides, but never on myself, so I was looking forward to giving this extension a try. Have you guys try any hair extension before? What are your thoughts? Leave your comments below!
Anyways, back to this hair extension review. So, I was contacted by a rep from Irresistible Me to give their product a try. A big shout-out and thank you to Irresistible Me for sending me this hair extension. I was recommended by them to give their 22 inch Royal Remy hair extension a try.
The hair extension comes in a nice black box, and inside you’ll receive 2 pieces of hair extension – the big one (on the left) is the hair extension itself, the smaller one (on the right) is actually a sample for you to try on before opening the bigger one. If you try the sample and the color doesn’t match, you can return the hair extension and ask for an exchange. For their exchange policy, please refer to their website.
Anyways, so I received the 22inch Royal Remy hair extension, and as soon as I took it out of the box, I can see right away that this hair extension is of a pretty good quality. The hair was full and thick, and there was very little shedding. I’m very impressed with the quality.
To be honest, since I’m growing out my hair, I have a bit of color at the tips of my hair. The ends of my hair are more on the lighter brown side, but since I didn’t feel like coloring my hair anytime soon, I decided to go with Natural Black for when the hair all grown out and I trim the ends off in the future. Anyways, the color Natural Black matches my natural hair color perfectly. If you guys need help with finding the right shade for you, please check out their Youtube channel or Pinterest page. On their youtube channel, you can also find the video on how to wear your extension.
I’m very happy with this hair extension, and I can’t wait to give it a try after my hair grows out, and I can trim my ends. Funny story, just on Saturday when I was doing makeup on my Bridal client, she took out the same Irresistible Me hair extensions for the hair stylist to use! It looked really amazing, so if you are looking for a great quality hair extension, definitely check out Irresistible Me.

Just to change up a little, this week’s installment of Product of the Week is changed to Salon of the Week! First of all, just to clear things of, I paid for all the services in the salon out of my own pocket. This is not an advertisement or endorsement. I do not gain anything from the salon or the stylist by reviewing about this salon.
As you guys know from my Twitter and Instagram, I went to a salon to get my hair colored and trimmed. I’ve been wanting to go ombre for a while, but last year when I did it in another salon in Jakarta, my ombre highlights ended up in a disaster. I decided that it’s time to give it another try, but was concerned as to which salon I should go.
In Canada, I usually go to Hairem salon with Vera, who is an amazing hairstylist. She knows how to cut my hair and colored it the way I love. I’ve high expectations for the next stylist who’ll touch my mane. Being away from Jakarta for way too long, I was unsure if anyone could live up to the standard that I have. I’m actually not that picky with salons and stylists, but since the ombre disaster I’m more wary about which stylists/salons I picked.
Now, 10-13 years a go, I went to this home salon, Do Hair Salon, yearly to get my hair trimmed and colored whenever I returned to Jakarta for the Summer. I tried to relocate the salon, but since I couldn’t remember the way to get there, and I thought all hope was lost. Until, I found out that the salon has moved to a commercial area.
I was so excited and decided that it was time to give the salon a visit. To my surprise, all the staff was still working there. It was great to see familiar faces. Not to mention, the Owner/Master Hairstylist still remembered me! Ko Harry was very pleasant and he knew what I wanted.
Back in my teens, I had my hair dyed purple and red with him, and he managed to do it without having the need to bleach my hair. However, now I like my hair colors to be subtle, much like my daily makeup. I think as I get older, I preferred subtle colors now. Not to mention, in my non-makeup job, I have to present myself to look professional. Nevertheless, I still wanted to bring a little bit of “oomph” into my hair.
Anyhow, I wanted a brown ombre for my hair, since blonde might look harsh and damaging. As soon as I said I wanted an Ombre hair, he immediately whipped out his special recipe and gave me the colors that I wanted. Ko Harry knew exactly what I want. He gave me a beautiful reddish-brown color for the base that gradually gets lighter at the ends. He mixed a little bit of orange on the tips and the end result was awesome!
He also gave me a warranty – if the ends weren’t light enough I could return to get it lightened for free. I used it. I returned and get the ends lightened a bit more so that it showed up even more. I loooove the result and I think my hair looks a little bit more shiny than usual.
Price for trim, color, wash, blow-dry: Rp. 1,300,000 (around USD$130).
Do Hair Salon is located at Centro Metro Broadway Blok A-16 Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK). Their phone number is: 021-30010337
