“Epic” is a word I like to keep on the shelf. But when Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton take the kids to Disneyland to celebrate their anniversary AND Halloween with Disney characters, what else can you say? But Stefani took it up another notch—to perhaps legendary—were the hair extensions flowing from the former The Voice judge’s head.
Wow, Gwen; Wow
Disneyland’s a magical place. There are all these lovely princesses walking around with great hair—you’ve got Jasmine, Ariel, Rapunzel, Pocahontas—and Stefani shows up and steals the show? Well, alright then! So, just what did the platinum-haired pop star pull out to become the talk of the town? A long ponytail that went down—now brace yourself—way past her shoulders! Yeah, that’s right. That long ponytail hit back like it was nothing. Mic drop. Later, princesses.
This isn’t the first time Stefani’s wowed crowds with her signature platinum hair color and masterful use of extensions, but it was likely the best look she’s ever sported paired with a set of Mickey Mouse ears.
Creative Ways to Use Hair Extensions
The best thing about hair extensions is that they’re a quick and easy way to change your look to fit the mood you’re in. They can keep your image fresh with minimal effort and be just what’s needed to make an old outfit look new or add some spark to a bad hair day.
One thing you want to keep in mind when using extensions is that they provide endless opportunity for experimentation. They let you do things you might not have ever considered, so using different lengths, colors, and styles can take your look all over the map if you want it to, so have some fun.
How You Can Pull Off Extensions like Gwen Stefani
For a seamless transition and getting the most out of your extensions, clip them in the natural direction on your hair. So if you’re setting the extensions up to pull back in a pony, angle them so they flow with the rest of your hair. Doing this will help protect the clips from lifting off your scalp or yanking the hair when pulled back, so you can remain confident and comfortable throughout the day.
