No, my hair hasn’t grown five inches in the space of a week (wouldn’t that be amazing?). The My Little Pony hair you’re seeing in these photos isn’t my own. Naturally, I’ve been wary of extensions ever since Britney went off the rails in 2007, but I finally decided to give the Hershesons clip-in ponytail a go, and I absolutely love it! It’s so swishy that whenever I wear it I can’t stop playing with my hair. As you can see…
The epic ponytail actually ties in nicely with the whole ‘business in the front, party in the back’ vibe I have going on here. Karen Millen’s white shirt is office-appropriate, but the dip-hem back in blue and white stripes keeps it interesting. And my Dessine-moi un soulier heels feature a playful glitter heel, perfect for impromptu parties.
If I had a traditional desk job I’d totally wear this look to the office – with tailored trousers instead of jeans – but as I mostly work from home I wore the ensemble to eat veggie burritos at Whole Foods instead (as you do).

Clip-in extensions tip: To get the right colour match for your hair compare the ends of the extensions to the ends of your hair. Never go ends to root, as your hair naturally gets lighter towards the ends.
Do you rate this look? How would you style Karen Millen’s sleeveless shirt? And are you also a fan of clip-in hair extensions? Leave a comment and let me know…
