The best part about clip in hair extensions is that you can put them in and be out the door in minutes. Of course, you’ll only be able to clip them in quickly if you know how. While clip in hair extensions are easy to apply, it can be helpful to read up on how to put them in if you’ve never done it before.
Here’s how to put in hair extensions in a snap:
Choose your style
Before you learn how to put in hair extensions, you’ll need to pick which ones you’re going to wear. Natural hair extensions last longer and can be styled with hot tools, so they’re your best bet for longer hair that looks and feels real. You’ll also need to make sure you’re choosing a length that works with your hair. A general rule of thumb is: the longer your hair extensions, the longer your natural hair needs to be. If you have 4 – 5 inches of hair, you should be able to wear any length of hair extensions. Remember, if you want shorter extensions, you can trim them to your desired length.
Part your real hair
You’ll want your hair to be dry before you put in your clip in hair extensions. Find a spot about 1.5 – 3 inches down from your natural part and lift up a section of hair. This is where you’ll be clipping in the hair extension.
Clip it in
Holding it by the clip, attach the hair extension near the root of your hair. It can take some practice to learn how close to the root it should be. It needs to be close enough to stay in, but not so tight that it hurts your head. Your hair extensions should be comfortable to wear.
Brush them in
Grab a brush and try brushing your hair. If your clip in hair extensions come loose, try putting them in tighter. Brushing them with your real hair ensures that they look seamless and natural.
Now that you know how to put in hair extensions, you can wear them with ease. Practice styling your gorgeous long locks with curling irons, straightening irons and other hot tools. You’re sure to find a look you’ll love!
