Angelina Jolie had a bad hair day on Sunday when she walked the red carpet at the Rome Film Festival premiere of “Eternals” with choppy, uneven extensions that stunned her social media followers, and they went commenting.
“Now, I’m no hairdresser, but whoever did Angelina Jolie’s hair extensions did it wrong and/or drunk,” one user tweeted, while another simply joked, “someone getting fired,” and a lot more other comments.
But how could one of the world’s most famous women have made such a colossal blunder with her hair? You may wonder.
Coming from a celebrity extension expert Priscilla Valles, who has lengthened the locks of A-listers such as Hailey Baldwin, Christina Aguilera, Megan Fox, and the entire Kardashian-Jenner family, Jolie’s beauty gaffe was caused by improper extension density and placement.
Valles said, “What went wrong with this look is that there are not enough extensions, and they are not high up. Correct installation involves first putting [extensions] on top, and then building them up and making sure there is enough in so you don’t see a demarcation line, which you see clear as day with Angelina.”
It appears that a quick trim can also help extensions blend in with the wearer’s natural hair, resulting in a luxuriously long look that isn’t lopsided.
“If someone has a really blunt cut, use thinning shears to barely hit the ends to break up that line or hold the hair up to chip in some layers to get rid of the blunt end. The thinner the ends are, the better the hair blends together,” Valles said.
Another extension error she notices frequently is a poor colour match.
“Even if you have the right amount of extensions in and build them properly, the colour being off ruins the entire look. The ends should always be half a shade lighter, the way hair would naturally be from root to end,” Valles said.
The celebrity stylist recently debuted her own line with Glam Seamless, one of the industry’s leading hair extension brands, as well as virtual courses to help customers and professionals alike avoid these common blunders. Her collection also includes more hair per pack than any other on the market.
“Whether you have thin hair or a blunt haircut, you will not run out of extensions. Having enough for a full head is key,” she promised.
