I have been involved with false hair since I was a teenager. Here is a pic of an early effort. The Haysi Fantayzee look, with many thanks to photographer Derek Ridgers for the image.
I am pleased to announce that hair extensions have finally come of age. My lovely hairdresser, Imran at Michealjohn in Knightsbridge, has started a new subtle approach with extensions especially aimed at women who have either thin or thinning hair, or who just need a volume boost. They are incredibly low maintenance and blend into your own hair imperceptibly. I love them. My hair is actually easier to style and look after with them than without. And bad hair days are a thing of the past.
