Angelina Jolie looked absolutely stunning on Sunday when she walked the red carpet during the premiere of her latest movie, “Eternals”, at the Rome Film Festival. But whats shocked fans the most was her hairstyle which features choppy, uneven hair extensions.
Fans were quick to notice and turned to social media to express their thoughts. Someone tweeted, “Now, I’m no hairdresser but whoever did Angelina Jolie’s hair extensions did it wrong and/or drunk” while another one wrote, “somebody getting fired.”
So how did this happen to such a popular woman? Priscilla Valles, a celebrity extension expert, claimed that Angelina’s latest hair mishap is caused by improper extension density and placement.
Valles has worked with hair extensions for famous celebrities like Megan Fox, Christina Aguilera, Hailey Baldwin, and the Kardashian-Jenner family. She told Page Six Style, “What went wrong with this look is that there are not enough extensions, and they are not high up”. She added that the proper way of doing so should involve “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.”
She added that a quick trim can help blend the extensions with the real hair for a longer and more luxurious look without being lopsided.
She explained, “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.”
Another extension mistake she noticed is the bad shade match. “Even if you have the right amount of extensions in and build them properly, the color being off ruins the entire look,” Valles noted. “The ends should always be half a shade lighter, the way hair would naturally be from root to end.”
Valles recently launched her own hair extension brand, Glam Seamless, and also conducted virtual courses to help people avoid common extension mistakes. Further, her brand has more hair per pack compared to others.
She said, “Whether you have thin hair or a blunt haircut, you will not run out of extensions. Having enough for a full head is key!”
