Two weeks ago, I was thrilled to get an email inviting me to the wonderful launch party for Koko Couture’s brand new hair extension range! I’ve always been a massive fan of extensions and have worn them on and off for the last 8 years (I feel old) so I was hugely excited to see the new range and the huge variety of colours and styles available!
Held at Tea 4/2 in Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter, the minimal, monochrome decor matched perfectly with the brand’s aesthetic, and with a mixture of super tasty raspberry cocktails and every bloggers’ favourite macarons to feast on, we were in our element and the atmosphere was infectious!
I wasn’t sure what to expect at the launch of a hair extensions range, so I was absolutely thrilled when I discovered on our arrival that we were actually going to be able to test the hair extensions and hair pieces ourselves! With experienced stylists on hand, we were colour matched to our perfect shade and then given the choice between extensions or a wig – you could also choose between curly, straight and dip dye styles, we were absolutely spoiled for choice!
The extensions are made with synthetic hair, but it is the best quality synthetic hair I’ve ever encountered, both looking and feeling like the real thing, with the added bonus of being heat resistant as well allowing you free rein to style them as you wish! The extensions have a lace panel inserted under the clips which makes them so much more comfortable to wear – I wore three wefts for the whole night and honestly couldn’t tell I had them in at all!
We were then given the option to have our new extensions styled with our hair, and it was amazing to see the transformations the stylist worked on everyone’s ‘dos before having our photos taken by the wonderful photographers who were documenting the evening.
As always with blogging events, time seemed to run away with us, and with a long journey home it was time to bid farewell. We were given a goodie bag as we exited and to our absolute delight, inside was one of KoKo Couture’s beautiful handbags! I debuted mine at Chester Races yesterday and look out for it in future blog posts to come!
A massive thank you to both Branded Lab PR and KoKo Couture for inviting me to such a wonderful event! I had a fantastic time and I adore both my extensions and my bag!
