Everybody dreams of having unlimited access to hyper-lengthy hair by way of professionally installed extensions… right? Maybe that’s just me. Regardless of your stance on long versus short hair, however, you’ve got to see Hilary Duff’s current hair situation for the upcoming How I Met Your Father series because it’s genuinely jaw-dropping.
The actor posted a slideshow of photos teasing the release of the How I Met Your Mother spinoff, and in them, she’s sporting what is possibly the longest hair she’s ever worn. “Glam with the bestest — it has been so much fun doing press for HIMYF — my heart is full and it feels so good to be out there again in the world promoting something I am so proud of,” Hilary captioned the post.
She credits Los Angeles hairstylist Nikki Lee — her long-term righthand stylist — for the “giant mane,” which flows all the way down to her waist and is voluminous enough to cover her front from shoulder to shoulder. Lee confirmed on her own Instagram account that the extensions are from Great Lengths (which I’ve actually had before. Can confirm: they are luxurious).
Quite simply put, I am drooling. There is length. There is dimension. There is full-blown magnitude to this hair. I’m a dark brunette with a chin-length bob, so it’ll pretty much never happen, but I will dream of having Hilary’s hair for months (OK, probably weeks until I find another celebrity hairstyle to fixate on).
If you want to see Hilary’s glorious extensions in action, you can watch How I Met Your Father on Hulu come January 18. Seeing as I loathe almost all reboots and spinoffs, I honestly wasn’t planning on watching it — but after seeing this hair… I might be tempted after all.
