It’s time for my long awaited Barefoot Blonde hair extensions review!! If you’ve hung out on Instagram for any number of time, you’ve probably seen me wear my Barefoot Blonde hair extensions by Amber Fillerup. Today I wanted to share my thoughts on both the fill ins and extensions.
I originally bought them solely to be able to do more fun braids (like this fishtail braid one) and hair styles but I also love wearing them down from time to time. You all have been asking about them so I wanted to share my official Barefoot Blonde hair extensions review for you!
Barefoot Blonde Hair Extensions Review
This post contains affiliate links.
All of Barefoot Blonde hair is 100% human remy hair. That means you can wash it, dry it, curl it and style it like your regular hair!
They come in a ton of different colors that are super easy to match to your own hair (more on that below). Since I don’t wear my extensions daily I haven’t had to replace them yet and I’ve had them over 2 years!
BFB Classic Extensions
To start off with, I bought a set of the BFB Classic extensions. I never planned on wearing my extensions all day, every day, but I love wearing them for date nights, special events and photoshoots. They are more of a special occasion type of thing!
The full set of BFB Classic extensions take a little bit of time to get used to wearing them. They had some weight to your head which was something I wasn’t prepared for. 🙂
The Classic set contains 10 wefts that are each 21 inches long. This helps you create a seamless, blended look. I wear the full set when I wear my hair down and about 6-8 of them when I do braids or other updos.
If you’re someone who likes to do long hairstyles, braids, etc. these are the best! I do a ton of different fishtail braids and more with these and always get a ton of compliments!
After I had the Classic extensions for a while and knew I loved them, I bought the BFB fill-ins! These are especially great for those of us with fine, thin hair to add some volume and “oomph”!
The Fill-ins contain 2 wefts that come in 14 and 18 inches. If you have thin hair and you just want to add some fullness to it, I highly recommend these!
How to Pick Your Color
I am a hair extension newbie but I loved that Barefoot Blonde had a “home try on kit” that you could buy to get the exact right color for your hair. I picked out 5 different shades of blonde to try out. Honestly I feel like I could have gone with 2 or 3 of them but landed on “Sandy Blonde”.
Your New Hair Extensions!
They arrived in such a pretty box! They also come with a cute booklet with exact instructions on how to put them on correctly. As a newbie, this was so helpful!
Even though I’ve worn them SO many times, I still refer back to that booklet to help me out. It shows you how to put in all of the wefts but most of the time I don’t do all of them steps, especially if I’m doing a fancy braid.
Tips for Wearing Hair Extensions
Get them trimmed by your stylist!
The first time I put all of them on I almost freaked out because they were SO long!! Great for so many people but I wanted them a little shorter. The best thing to do with any hair extensions is bringing them in to your stylist to have them trimmed to blend into your hair. A little cut worked wonders for me and now I’m obsessed with them! My stylist was super impressed with how well they blended in with my own hair.
Don’t wear all the wefts at once.
I typically don’t wear all of the wefts at one time. The majority of the time I’m doing a hairstyle of sorts (a braid or multiple braids) so I often times just put the bottom ones in to add some fullness and length. If I’m wearing it down, I add more in towards the top so they blend well!
Practice, practice, practice!
It takes some practice at getting them in properly! I’m getting better at putting them in but once I had to go to the bathroom in the middle of a dinner date with Rishi to take some of them out since you could see them haha! Now I make sure they’re all hidden before leaving the house. 🙂
Backcomb your hair
Before you put your BFB hair in, back comb your hair with some texturizing dry shampoo (like tip #4 on my dry shampoo tips here). This will keep your extensions from sliding down! I also like to backcomb the top of my hair a little to fill out the space above each weft. This helps mask your extensions.
I’m a big fan of my Barefoot Blonde Hair Extensions and the quality of them. They’re a super fun way to switch up your hairstyles from time to time and I highly recommend them!
