Why Natural Beaded Rows are the Best Extensions

Continuing to share my hair journey, I started with clip ins and then went to tape ins. You can read my first blog post here comparing the two. I now have Natural Beaded Rows by Karen the hair QUEEN. If you are in the area you need to see her for cut, color or her forte extensions. Best part is she is offering my followers 15% off their first service! Click to see how all three hair extensions stack up. Comparing clip ins and then went to tape ins and Natural Beaded Rows.

    1. Hey love yes I do!! If you click the link to my first blog post those pictures are me with tape ins! You can also find it under my hair tab. My hair is thick though!

  1. Hi 🤗 Thank you for sharing this!! Can I ask what the upkeep cost is every 6-8 weeks? And if color is included or if that is extra too? Thanks!! 😊

    1. Hey love thanks for reading. That upkeep cost is the cost to get your extensions moved up. Cut and color would be ontop of that! But Karen is super affordable xx. Are you local?

  2. I am thinking about getting these for my wedding in Mexico! Can you put your hair up easily and are they really heavy?

    Swimming in them?!

    1. You are going to love them! Have you done clip ins before? I would practice with those before! I don’t think they are heavy but some people do. You can put your hair up with them!

  3. Thanks for sharing! I have tape ins now and am consider the switch. Would you say upkeep is about the same: price & timing?

    Love your local suggestions— pretty new to Minneapolis!

    1. Hey love did you see the table in this blog post? That has all of the information on upkeep and pricing!

  4. Is the actual hair you have the Bohym brand you have linked on the blog? I have hand tied Sunny hair from Amazon, it’s 100% human hair but it is terrible, I have to brush once an hair to keep it from tangling. Any suggestions on hair brands?

    1. Hey love it’s the same brand I use. I didn’t get it on amazon but it should still be the same on amazon! Hope this helps

  5. Girl you are making me drool over how pretty these NBR are! I have ALWAYS & I mean ALWAYS wanted extensions. My hair is super thin so I am afraid they won’t even work. I haven’t tried any of them, but it’s been on my wishlist for many many many years. I’m not gonna lie with 4 boys and a very tight budget getting the money for them is near impossible. But hey I am honestly willing to get a second full time job (well 3rd cause let’s face in being a mom is my 1st full time job 🙊) just time be able to have these beautiful extensions. I’m one who never ever puts my wants/needs first. But 2020 is the year I’m trying to start. Thank you so much for all the info. Plus MINNEAPOLIS isn’t that far from me. A little over 4 hours I think. I’m in northern Wisconsin right along Lake Superior. Do you think these would work for super thin/fine hair?

    1. You are sooo sweet babe! I would say start with tape ins! I linked those in my first hair blog post! And then go from there. I would also reach out to a local stylist to see if they will work for you… or if you want to drive to see Karen! 🙂

      1. Thanks so much for all your help sweetie. I will definitely talk to my local hair stylist to see what she thinks. She knows I’ve wanted them forever as well, but she doesn’t do them so I might need to talk to one that does. Thanks again hun! 😘💕
