Ted Gibson Makes Fake Hair Socially Acceptable
June 15, 2009
What: Ted Gibson Clip-In Extension Systems, $150
Why: I envy women who can grow their hair down to there; I’ve simply never been able to push my locks past the shoulder mark. But having worked with many a hairdresser, I’ve learned that it’s OK that I don’t have Rapunzel’s genes—that’s what clip-in extensions are for. But human-hair clip-in extensions can be painfully expensive, and the cheaper ones (made with stringy synthetic strands) can look, well, cheap.
Thank goodness for stylist Ted Gibson, who’s new line of extensions look extremely natural despite being made with synthetic hair. Available in blendable, jaw-dropping colors dreamt up by Ted’s top colorist, Jason Backe, these lightweight extensions sit tight to the head, making them virtually undetectable.
I hit up my friend’s birthday rocking the Lindsey, and everyone couldn’t stop commenting on how beautiful my hair looked— so much so, I felt a tad guilty for stealing the birthday girl’s spotlight…but only a tad.
