A Real Life Confidence Story

January 29, 2020 2 min read

With tumbling blonde hair that’s full of multi-dimensional colour, you’d be forgiven for thinking Ellie Burrell’s locks were all her own. However, she’s actually wearing a set of our luxury clip-in human hair extensions…

This month, we catch up with the lovely Ellie, who purchased our premium extensions to help her regain her confidence. Find out why Ellie chose Stranded Hair extensions, how she styles them to look ultra-natural and how they empower her to feel more like herself.

  1. Why did you want to buy hair extensions?
  2. I have really long, medium thickness hair but I recently cut it short. I feel most like myself with long hair and without that I lost my confidence and what felt like my identity.

  1. Why did you choose Stranded Hair Extensions?

I chose Stranded Hair after doing lots of research on different extension types. I knew I wanted clip-in extensions as I didn’t want to jeopardise the quality and health of my hair. After looking into lots of companies Stranded really stood out, I loved being able to have my hair colour matched and the price point of the products.

After getting colour matched online, Ellie chose our 20 inch luxury4 Piece Clip-In Extensions in the shade Bird of Paradise; a beautiful warm blonde tone that’s laced with bright highlights. Weighing around 170 grams, this set is ideal for adding volume, length and body to your natural hair.

  1. What’s your favourite thing about your extensions?
  2. They’re so natural, the colour is a perfect match which was a complete shock and relief after I’ve coloured my hair so many times.

  1. How do you style your extensions? 
  2. I always brush my extensions with theStranded Hair Brush as there is no drag and it makes them look super fluffy and soft. I then use my Remington wand curlers for a beachy, undone curl.
  1. What is your top tip for fitting your extensions?
  2. Use a comb to partition your hair.

  1. How do you feel when you’re wearing extensions?
  2. I feel like myself! 

  1. What would you say to someone considering buying Stranded Hair Extensions?
  2. I’d tell someone that I’ve had such a confidence boost since purchasing them, there has been no down sides. Perfect colour match, luxury hair, easy to use, they look so natural and you can wear them in lots of different styles.
