Gotta love Kelly Ripa for "keeping it real!" and revealing one of the best kept secret weapons of Real Housewives, Beauty Queens, models and celebrities to her audience live on Dec 20 ... extra hair. 

The down to earth star who is always able to laugh at herself, took off a significant chunk of her mane for all to see even though her producer wasn't so sure, worried she would scare her audience and actually said so on the air. Unlike the bad weaves and glue-in weft mishaps that we have seen on stars before, the halo hair extensions are virtually undetectable and undeniably real looking. And Ms Ripa proved it.

Over a year ago, Marie Claire wrote about her stylist, Ryan Trygstad's "BeautyFalls". This is reportedly a man who knows his way around fake hair- making hair pieces for Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Chastain to name a few, but instead of the usual 6 hour extension session this hairy attachment only requires a minute or less to put on and remove, Plus you can do it yourself, wash, style it over and over again! 

Kelly's "wigston" as she named it, will set you back a cool $475 at Trygstad's NYC salon, after being customized to match your color and cut, but don't worry there's a less expensive option available to the ordinary girl wanting some extra-ordinary hair from a company online that sells the Halo Hair Crown in the US and is taking orders online for just $175 {HERE}.

The Halo Crown hair is 100% human hair with a silky texture and easy to wear. Simple to adjust, nothing to glue or clip in; just a small invisible transparent thread in front to hide that is easily covered with your own hair. I guess the weight of your natural hair once pulled over keeps in place because I actually flipped my head up and down and side to side and it never fell off! GENIUS!

Here's a video of Kelly showing us her halo hair.

If any of you would like to buy them here is the link to the Halo Hair ($175). The color options are huge and although you may think it's hard to match your color you'd be surprised how easy it is to do.

Regarding hair color, there are industry standardized colors based on how dark the hair is on a scale of 1 to 10, with the blackest being 1, to 10 being a very light blond color. (So it may be as easy as asking your colorist what level you are). For me, my stylist says I am usually between a 3 and 4. Because my hair has low lights and highlights, I can get away with wearing extensions that are between color 2 and 4 and it all blends. Afterall, being all one color can make you look like you are wearing a helmut on your head. The best part of the halo hair is that it is 100% human hair so if you like you can add your own highlights or make it a perfect match yourself. Cut it to the length you want and style, some girls just want more fullness while others might be interested in longer hair. 

Here's to having it all Goldilocks!
