Reader Question: How Do I fix a bad hair cut?


Hey Jamie!

So my regular hair stylist really f*cked up my hair and chopped off too much. I want a few extensions now to make up some of the length, and since you have them, what do you recommend? I want just few strands. He put too many layers in and  it looks so bad that it makes me sad to look in the mirror.  What’s your advice, pretty lady?


Hi K,

I’m so sorry! A bad hair cut can really mess up your self confidence, and that’s no good.  But you’re right- a few extension pieces should do the trick for you and will help you feel better while your hair grows out a bit.  Since there are so many different kinds of extensions, I’d recommend talking to an extensions expert at either a salon or hair store.  They’ll be able to look at your hair type and texture to figure out what kind of extensions would be best for your hair. For example, I have fine, dyed blonde hair and I prefer the semi-permanent individual keratin tip extensions.  I have friends who prefer the clip-in kind that you take out every night and put in every morning, but I’m too lazy for that.  If you’re in the Los Angeles area, I really love Just Extensions– they’re an extensions only hair salon and they have really affordable prices.  You can also use the salon locator for Great Lengths Hair, one of the most well-known hair extensions on the market, to find a salon near you that carries and applies their extensions.

Good luck and keep me posted on how it goes!


Editor’s note: I actually really LOVE Julianne Hough’s short hair, but this before and after photo really shows what a few extensions can do!

Just Extensions Launch Event, Presented by Sexy Hair, and Hosted By Me!


My love for all things extensions only grows bigger and bigger by the day, which is why I was absolutely thrilled when I was asked to host the launch event for LA’s first hair extension bar: Just Extensions.  The event was presented by SexyHair, an awesome hair product line that has a great selection of products that are safe to use with hair extensions, which is totally key for maximum wear.  Sexy Hair’s Stylist, Laura Hickenboth, gave tips to all guests on how to maintain extensions and what products were best with each specific technique, which was incredibly informative.

Just Extensions, founded by Riqua Hailes, offers extension lovers an alternative to the long application hours and over-priced services typically associated with getting extensions.  Whether you are looking to add length, volume or color, the experienced “extensionists” and licensed stylists can help you achieve the exact look that you want.  Just Extensions also allows you to choose your preferred method of application, which I love, and their stylists can help guide you on the best application for you, based on your hair’s texture.
