Clip in hair extensions are great if you don’t want to permanantly commit to extensions or if you are still getting a feel for the look. They are perfect for everyone!
Most clips have four holes – 2 on each side – so if you want a fuller look, or if you have thin hair and can only get away with hiding 2 or 3 wefts then why not double the hair on each clip.
Once you have sewn the first clip on (just sewing the weft onto the clip through the top 2 holes). Cut another weft and sew it onto the weft using the hole below the first one.
Pop open all the clips on the weft
Section off a piece of hair the same width of the clip – twist the hair in your fingers, spray a little bit of hair spray onto the hair then slide the clip in from the top and snap it shut on the hair. The spray will keep it securely in place.
Continue to add the wefts in like this all up the head – taking care to conceal them well before moving onto the next
When measuring the extensions, leave a gap of 1 cm at either side of the hair line so that the extensions are hidden better
Using hair spray on your own hair before adding the clips makes them more secure.
If you are planning on curling your hair – curl the extensions and your own hair separately, then once finished, apply the extensions as usual – this means you arnt pulling the clip ins with curling irons so they wont slip down.
If you are doubling up on hair and sewing 2 wefts onto each set of clips, then why not add a different colour for the underneath piece to give your hair a different look
