Long Live Long Hair

When Top Knot Extensions reached out to me a few weeks ago about trying their halo hair extensions, I was almost jumping up & down with excitement! I have always had long hair, it has never been super thick, but it took on a whole new meaning of thin (and sad..) after having babies. I recently had a few inches cut off, so it is the shortest it has been in a few years. My post-partum hair loss has been insane, I have crazy fly-aways & although my hair still grows really fast, it seems to break much easier leaving me with lots of split ends. I can hardly even pull off a decent top knot these days, let alone anything cute like a fun braid. I was so excited to have the chance to have long, thick hair again. Whenever I put them in, I never want to take them out!

Here is a before & after of my hair, it makes a world of difference! Not just in length, but in thickness & texture, the extensions curl sooo much better than my hair does & makes styling so so so much more fun! Please excuse the half renovated bathroom in the background. πŸ˜‰

The halo hair extensions are so easy to put in & take out, which is super important for moms, or anyone with a busy schedule & limited time to get ready. It takes me less than 5 minutes to put them in, with added time to curl & style of course. I haven’t had a chance yet but I need to get to the hair salon to get them blended to my current length a bit. They aren’t heavy or uncomfortable at all, and they have adjustable side clips so you can make sure they fit your head perfectly. Harper has had so much fun brushing my hair while they are in, she is begging me to make an Elsa braid, I can’t wait to try them with these longer locks! πŸ™‚

If you’re considering trying some, you can use coupon code jessicaTKlove for 10% off your purchase! You can also talk to your hair salon to see if they can get them ordered for you, if they can carry them you’ll be able to get a perfect color match & have them blended right away! And if your salon can carry them, you can try out all of their different types of extensions, as they have more permanent options or clip ins as well! *Updated to add, if you have had any issues ordering, it looks like some of their extensions are currently on backorder but should be in stock soon, and the coupon code should work as long as the item is in stock!

Long live long hair!!

Top Knot Extensions sent me this halo to review, but did not compensate me to write this post. All thoughts & opinions are my own! Thank you for taking the time to read & support the companies that make it possible to keep my blog up & running! πŸ™‚


  1. Those look great! Do they hold a curl for any longer/shorter than your own hair? Do have to take them out/put them in each day?

  2. I love that top! I'm not pregnant but maybe I could get it for those times s good baby is inevitable?! haha
    Love the clip ins! Would gladly share my hair with you, I have a boofy lions mane to contend with on a daily basis πŸ™‚

  3. So so pretty!!! I have long hair but it hasn't ever been super thick either and I have played around with extensions. I had some I liked and then had my hair girl try and match the color. Despite them saying they were real human hair and costing a ton they were destroyed afterwards. I might have to try this brand.

  4. I chopped my hair right before my second babe was born and my hair is in such bad shape now. I've never used extensions, but these have be lusting for some!

  5. I always had long THICK hair, until I had Avery. My babe is two and a half now and I'm STILL dealing with "postpartum hair loss". I've been taking hair vitamins like it's my job. I've been wanting to try extensions, but have always been a little nervous on how they'll look. These look awesome! I may need to give them a try.



  6. I have never been able to sport the long hair, I've always been one for short hair. I suppose it's the style, but you look gorgeous with long hair. πŸ™‚

  7. You look beautiful either with or without! Such a cute top. But it's true, now that you mention, I do remember having thicker hair before my two pregnancies a few years ago! I miss how I rarely loose hair during pregnancy. Now I find hair everywhere around the house! It drives me nuts! That's the clean freak in me!!! LOL

  8. It’s good to know that you are loving the hair extensions! It’s really a great way to make your hair look longer, if not fuller, while you’re waiting for your own hair to grow out like so. And it case you want to experiment with new hairstyles, you can also try them out on the extensions first. That way, you won’t have to worry about a bad hair day, if you end up not liking the new style. Anyway, thanks for sharing your hair experience, Jessica!
