Putting in Hair Extension Clips 

Whether you’re wanting to extend your luscious locks, or add a bit of volume, clip-in hair extensions are the easiest way to do this – and they really are very simple.

The first thing people worry about is whether or not these clips will be visible to the eye, giving away any illusion of natural hair! If done right, nobody will know your secret as the clips are hidden under your natural hair, and can’t be seen. Here’s how:

1. Part your hair

The first step is to divide your hair into a top section and a bottom section. Grab the top section and pin it up and out of the way.

2. Tease the roots

Take the bottom of your hair and gently tease the roots. This adds both a little natural volume and makes it easier for the hair extension clips to grip onto your hair.

3. Start clipping!

Take hold of a weft (a hair extension with multiple clips) and hold them against the bottom of your hair. Comb them into the roots of the section you just teased before lining them up with your part and clipping them closed in place.

4. Release your hair

Next, you can release the top section of hair that was clipped out of the way. As you do this, grab one or two inches off the bottom of this section and leave it down to cover the extensions you just put in. Clip the top out of the way again.

5. Tease the roots

Tease the roots of this new hair, ready for the clips.

6. Clip-in

Following step 3, start clipping again, this time using a weft with three clips.

7. Let your hair down!

Now let the rest of your hair down. Have a play with your part until you’re happy with how it sits. If you’re looking for more length, add in a single clip weft on each side at the front to frame your face.

And, you’re done! Easy and looks great, giving you that added length and extra volume to look and feel amazing. Now that you know how to put the clips in to give you the best results, you can have a play and work out how to style your hair extensions. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Overnight braids: who doesn’t love the look of wavy hair from braids?

Braid your hair just like you normally would to achieve this look. Once the braids are in, it’s always a good idea to use a gel over each braid to seal in the wave when it comes time to unravel in the morning.

Next, grab your hair extensions and mimic the exact same braids from your hair. The waves will then match seamlessly and can be added to your hair in the morning. Sleeping on a satin or silk pillow overnight will help prevent any of that frizz from happening. Follow the steps above to add in your hair extensions in the morning and you’re good to go!

Curls galore: want to skip the waves and go straight to the curls? Before you get started, add the hair clip extensions to your hair following the steps above. Add some heat protectant to your hair to protect it from any damage before you get started.

Now’s the time to get curling! Make sure you include your hair extensions as you take sections of your hair to curl. By mixing it into curls with your natural hair, it will blend seamlessly. Add some hair spray on top to help hold the curls and you’re ready for the day.

There are so many different ways to have fun with your hair extensions and create voluminous, effortless hairstyles that will make you both feel and look great. All it takes is a little practice, and you will soon be able to put that hair extension clips on with your eyes closed for a flawless look each and every time.
