Well I just tried to buy some from lush, and their website totally trogged out on me! So off to google I popped and found these http://www.cliphair.co.uk/18-Inch-Double-Wefted-Set-Clip-In-Hair-Extensions-Bleach-Blonde-613.html
Free worldwide delivery too :) so they're cheaper, and they have 170g of hair which is more!! Hope they're really 100% human hair, I get worried when extensions are a good price after last time with them naff ones. If they're good I'll love that site foreverrrr
The reviews are good too :)

Hey

I currently have quite short hair, just above shoulder length. In the next couple of weeks i'm planning on dying it a bit darker and dip dyeing the ends. Sometimes I want to wear my hair up in a messy bun with my extensions. However, if I were to put my hair up in a messy bun using extensions, would the dip dyed bit be hidden in the bun or would it be visible and therefore look stupid?

Thanks, beckie.

This is just
(...) would the dip dyed bit be hidden in the bun or would it be visible and therefore look stupid?

The dipdyed bit would be visible, but won't look stupid. I actually really like the bun being coloured differently. Here's an quick example of my hair, which is fully dipdyed (pink/purple) with a few streaks that start at the root in the underneath layer of my hair.

I do not have any experience with extensions, however.

Okay, thanks for your help! I'm definitely going for the dip dye, just still not sure about buying extensions :/

Yeah I saw the dye it yourself shade, that's a cool idea marketing it as that :) I am eyeing up headkandy actually.

I really would advise buying a set of blonde one which were close to your hair colour before putting the lilac on, then dye them. Going from brown to lilac will kill them! It's good to have a set for if you go back to normal colours anyway :)

As i said above headkandy do a dye it yourself set which you can dye any colour (not lighter) or they do a bunny blonde which is lightest blonde which would be a great base for lilac!

Hi, If I buy lightest blonde from lush extensions, can I tone them to white? Would that work?

Mine didn't Ruby-haze, they were a tad too yellowy to tone to get to the white that my hair was. So I bleach bathed them, but it made no difference! I gave up and toned my own hair back to a natural blonde shade in the end. You may be luckier than I was though, seems to be hit and miss with them in regards to shades (and quality) x

yeap, mine dyed fine, although there were a few hairs in the mix that didn't dye so may have been a few synth strands in there. But when I've bought extensions from their site rather than the ebay, they've been fine.

I got the platinum blonde ones from Foxy Locks and they toned to white easily :)

Can anyone suggest some cheap extensions I can get? I usually need 2 sets of full head to cover my hair cause it's so thick and I don't really have that kind of money. I think though, because my hairs a cruella, I might dye one old set of extensions black to use with the black side and just buy a completely new set for the lilac.

Does anyone have an opinion on these? I'm thinking of ordering them but I can't decide as I'd have to lighten them slightly to match so looking to see how good they are for dying/durability please :)

http://dirtylooks.com/highlight-and-blusher-weft-hair-extensions

Ok maybe I don't like them haha. They have sent me the wrong colour and they look really really thin!! I can't tell how they feel obviously because they have a hygiene seal but I'm not so happy. :(

Are they not thin because they're only meant to be highlights so to speak? I've got a full head set from Dirty Looks and I love them, they used to be Head Kandy and still do HK extensions which imo are really thick and full. I've used them for a few years.

I'm super excited, I just ordered my first set of extensions!  I never got them before because my hair is so thick, but I am getting an undercut this week, so I figured now would be a good time to be able to mix some pastel colors into my hair and get my pastel fix :)
