Halo Design Hair Extensions - 5 minute celebrity extra hair secret to make you look younger - Kelly Ripa Style

Gotta love Kelly Ripa for "keeping it real!" and revealing one of the best kept secret weapons of Real Housewives, Beauty Queens, models and celebrities to her audience live on Dec 20 ... extra hair. 

The down to earth star who is always able to laugh at herself, took off a significant chunk of her mane for all to see even though her producer wasn't so sure, worried she would scare her audience and actually said so on the air. Unlike the bad weaves and glue-in weft mishaps that we have seen on stars before, the halo hair extensions are virtually undetectable and undeniably real looking. And Ms Ripa proved it. 

Kelly's "wigston" as she named it, will set you back a cool $475 at Trygstad's NYC salon, after being customized to match your color and cut, but don't worry there are a few other options available to the ordinary girl wanting some extra-ordinary hair. There is one company in the US that sells them for over $350 at salons nationwide called Halo Couture and another called Halo Hair Crown taking orders online for $100 less called Hidden Crown and get this ... it's 40% MORE Hair. Plus the Hidden Crown has thick not wispy ends! This is called double drawn hair in the industry and very few companies offer this hair because it is so expensive.

I was fortunate enough to get a sample from these companies to compare. The hair from both is 100% human hair, but Hidden Crown is more simple to adjust, nothing to glue or clip in; just a small invisible transparent thread in front to hide that is easily covered with your own hair that you clamp and tie down. Gravity or the weight of your natural hair once pulled over keeps in place because I actually flipped my head up and down and side to side and it never fell off! GENIUS!

Here's a video of Kelly showing us her halo style hair extentsion.

If any of you would like to buy them here is the link to the US brand, Hidden Crown Hair, that I think is best. The color options are huge and although you may think it's hard to match your color you'd be surprised how easy it is to do.

Regarding hair color, there are industry standardized colors based on how dark the hair is on a scale of 1 to 10, with the blackest being 1, to 10 being a very light blond color. It's important to know that this has NOTHING to do with hair extension colors. Hair Extension companies formulate and name all their own colors. Some may be similar to you but please be aware that these vary widely and will not be the same for all. I can wear color #2, #3, #4/613. As long as you get within half a shade this extension design will blend in with your hair - half of your own hair is pulled over the top so that will remain to be what most people see as your color. 

Having all one color hair can make you look like you are wearing a helmut on your head. The best part of Hidden Crown is that it is 100% human hair so you can deposit color and make it a perfect match too as well as cut it to the length you want and style just like your own hair! Some girls just want more fullness while others might be interested in longer hair. 

Here's to having it all Goldilocks!
