Halo Hair Extensions - Comparison REVIEW: Halo UK, Halo Crown, Halo Couture

Halo Couture vs Halo Crown vs Halo Hair Extensions (UK)

In a world of sinners, the Gods of locks, have given us the answer to all of our hairy prayers ...halo shaped hair. The easiest extension ever to use, taking less than a minute to put on without any clips to hide, messy glue or damage to your own hair. To see how easy it is check out my post about Kelly Ripa's fake hair on a wire {Here}

But the question remains - which halo design is most awe inspiring of all? To find out I ordered all three and here's what I found. 

Halo Couture is by far the most expensive $375-600 for their 16 inch extensions (100 grams of hair) which are sold primarily in salons. Halo Crown, in comparison is only $225 and 40% more hair (140 grams). Halo from the UK offers a deluxe 16 inch Halo of 140 grams for $259.99, but it is only 9-10 inches in width offering only hair in back USD, plus it ships from England.

Difference in width

All three have equally great hair, similar texture, silky and luxurious, but only Halo Couture and Halo Crown are laced backed. The Halo from the UK reportedly can be itchy and bulky with a single hard seam at the top holding all the hair together.

Let's face it, the reason we are looking for an extension is because we want extra hair, so it makes sense to buy the halo that has the most hair. HaloCrown's version wins! weighing in at 140 grams, which is almost 40 % more hair than either Halo Couture or the regular (non-deluxe) UK Halo.

 Halo Crown width of hair is 12.5 to 13 inches of hair that goes ear to ear. HaloCouture is 11.5 to 12 inches wide. The Halo Hair Extension from the UK is only 9-10 inches across. I prefer the wider halo design because is gives me volume on the sides too like a whole set of extensions, not just in the back of my head.

Here are some before and after shots of me wearing the 16 inch Halo Crown, that I had cut to 14 inch length and styled - the uncut 16 inch Halo Crown hits at my bra strap and I didn't want it quite that long.

As the old beauty queen within me would say,
"Love your hair, hope you win!"

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!
