Dirty Looks: HK Full Head hair extensions review
Dirty Looks is a highly sought-after hair extensions brand, with a cult-like following of beauty editors, bloggers and A-listers, such as Whitney Port, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Love Moschino. Founded in 2004, the brand aims to “reach out to girls who are adventurous, free-spirited and ambitious – a girl who is every girl’s best friend and every boy’s dream”. Sounds good to us!
The Dirty Looks HK Full Head hair extensions are made from 100% Remy human hair, which is the highest grade of real hair. This enables them to be straightened and curled, and even dyed (darker only is advised). These extensions are available in a comprehensive range of 21 colours, in lengths 12-14”, 16-18”, 20-22” and 24-26”. With weights ranging from a 150g to a whopping 180g, you get a substantial amount of hair in each set.
Opening the packaging was a real “love at first sight” moment. A pretty, lilac box held 10 beautiful wefts (one of which was an incredible quad), each designed to fit the head naturally and blend in seamlessly, whilst creating lashings of volume. We chose the shade Hot Toffee, which was a perfect match, featuring stunning, multi-tonal colouring and a super soft touch; the 20-22” length was smooth and thick from root to tip. Overall, we were extremely impressed with both the quality and quantity of these extensions – Dirty Looks is definitely in a league of its own!
Easy-to-follow, illustrated instructions are provided, explaining exactly where to place each piece, along with a personalised welcome note, tasty lollipop, various information leaflets and extra clips. The presentation box is also handy for storing your extensions and keeping them tangle-free – an added bonus! It is clear that Dirty Looks have carefully thought out their product and packaging, ensuring a quick, hassle-free process and the best results.
Adding to the brand’s uniqueness is a clever little section that holds a single weft; this enables the buyer to test the hair and colour before opening the rest of the set. Unlike other brands, which will not accept returns after the packaging has been opened, Dirty Looks will happily provide refunds or exchanges after the seal has been broken. Therefore, you can have peace of mind, knowing that you won’t be stuck with an unsuitable shade. In the meantime, if you are struggling to choose the right colour before ordering, you can email photographs to the Dirty Looks team of stylists, who will help find the perfect match.
Using the complete set creates a full, ultra glamorous style, which will definitely get you noticed on a night out. For a suitable daytime look, we plan to use fewer pieces, whilst still achieving ample length and volume. The HK extensions are also fantastic for creating up-dos, fish tail plaits and thick ponytails. Top tip: remember to use heat protection and these hair pieces are certain to last.
You can also shop online for their extensive collection of hair products, which are perfect for styling, fixing and looking after your tresses. The Dirty Looks YouTube channel and blog are packed full of inspiration and creative tutorials, so you need never be bored with your hairstyle.
The HK Full Head hair extensions are very reasonably priced, starting at just £87.49 (currently reduced to £69.99). Be sure to order a set and we guarantee you will fall in love with them, just as we have.
