Buy me a pony: Hair extension review

Schwarzkopf recently launched Magic Hair: clip-in hair extensions that promise to ‘add volume and length at home‘ for just $44.95.

I wore these out on Saturday night to a cool new Mexican cantina, and the extensions were given the thumbs up by my entourage at home (sons, baby-sitter, baby-sitters BFF) and my Amigos out that night.

I liked them too.

Should've had my thumbs up for the pic, but by then I'd had a few Coronas...

Tips for wearing Schwarzkopf Magic Hair extensions:

  • Choose the colour that matches your hair as closely as possible. I had recently gone a solid dark brown so this was relatively easy.
  • Allow extra time to get ready so you can experiment with a hair-style that suits. After trying a pony-tail, and a half-up half-down style, I settled on this hippy-esque, side-twisty style that I reckon looked kinda cool.
  • Make sure you follow the directions on the pack and secure the extensions correctly. Nothing worse than an extension falling into the guacamole.
  • You can use styling products on them, but don’t use your GHD like I did. Fried fake hair is not a great look…!
  • Be confident with your fab new hair! I must admit I felt a little self-conscious at first. But I was out with buddies I’ve known for over a decade, and even they were none the wiser.


When in the box, Schwarzkopf Magic Hair looks like this:


You’ll find it at BIG W, Priceline and selected pharmacies for $44.95.
