Kelly Ripa Removes Halo Hair Extensions on TV
Kelly Ripa is a well known morning TV personality. She is also known for adding excitement to the show, which is why so many tune in on a regular basis. She is also quite beautiful, with hair that is long, flowing and full of volume. Many people did not know that she had hair extensions, until she recently took some out on air. This is a feat that many would be afraid to do. It only further shows that Ripa is confident in who she is and that she knows how to grasp the attention of the audience successfully. The reasons that Ripa’s Halo hair extensions are hard to distinguish as not being her own hair are they are made from real human hair and is attached to her head with a thin “halo”. They also need to be customized for the individual which makes them a little on the expensive side as far as DIY hair extension applications go.
From what I can gather the Hair Extension piece she showed on TV is called TryBeautyFalls from Ryan Trygstad a NYC celebrity Hairstylist. These Halo extensions are held in place by a transparent strand that has hair attached and goes around the crown of your head. This allows the hair extensions to stay secure without glue or clips. I unsuccessfully tried to find a website that sold these pieces online but read that TryBeautyFalls start at $475 before being customized to match the wearer’s style and color. Don’t worry there are many options for those of you that would like to purchase and wear this type of extension. You call roll the dice and buy from a highly regarded seller on Ebay. I have not personally tried them but halohairextensions.com in the UK looks like a very solid online company with lots of positive reviews on their Halos. Or you can check a Hair Extension Salon in your city. In Dallas I offer my clients Balmain Hair’s “Hair Dress” another brand that uses this halo type of adhesion. I customize these in the salon and my clients can remove or re-apply and style at home in under 5 minutes.
Many people were on edge 12/21/12 anyway with all of the rumors of the world coming to an end according to the Mayan calendar. Kelly Ripa stated in her show that with the end of the world approaching, why not take out her hair extensions? She was told not to by one of the show producers, but just smiled and took out a piece anyway. She gave it to her co-host, Michael Strahan. Removing her Halo hair extensions was not just for Ripa to get attention though. She was making a point to show some love and support for various women in Hollywood who have lost hair or gone bald. The audience responded very favorably to her tactics, and her self confidence to do this on TV with millions of viewers tuned in. If you missed the episode, you may be disappointed. Don’t worry though as there are numerous video clips of it all over the internet. You can watch yourself to see how it all unfolds as Ripa removes her hair extensions!
