If you’ve yearned for just a few more inches, are looking to sport a pastel hue on the weekend or want some more va va voom in your locks, clip-in extensions are your answer. They are the quickest way to add length, volume and color to your hair any day of the week, all you have to do is snap them into your natural hair and bam! You have an unbe-weave- able new look in a matter of minutes. But, before you go out and buy a set, be sure to check out our guide that’ll give you everything you need to know before you go faux.
Why choose clip-ins over other types of extensions?
Clip-ins are a great alternative to permanent extensions; they can last a long time, you can put them in yourself, and they’re much more affordable. While permanent extensions can cost you well over $1,000, clip-ins are easier on the wallet ranging from $12 a strand to $400 for a full set. They’re easy to maintain and you can style them as you please. They are great for going glam at parties or stepping things up a notch at weddings. They are low maintenance and can be in one day and out the next.
How do I know which length to buy?
Shorties: We’re talking chin length or shorter you’ll want to grab the 10-14 inch length.
Mid-Lengths: Anything between chin length and collarbone length shoot for 14-18 inch extensions.
Long Locks: Basically anything past your collarbone is game for 18 inches or longer.
Should I buy a 1-piece or multiple pieces?
It’s true, that a 1-piece is going to be super easy to put in — like extensions for dummies, but if you’re going to invest in extensions do yourself a favor and go for the multiple pieces as they offer so much more when it comes styling options. Multiple-piece extensions are sold in wefts, that will vary in width and they can be clipped in and out of your hair in a matter of minutes. With practice, it shouldn't take you any longer than 5 minutes to apply a full set of clip-in extensions.
Can I reuse my clip-in extensions?
Yes! This is what clip-ins are all about. As long as you care for them properly, they can last anywhere from 3-6 months or even a year. Never sleep in them and remember to wash and condition them just like your regular hair, let air-dry and
store them in an airtight container. Check out the video for a step-by- step tutorial on caring for your clip-ins.source: youtube.com @ Rayann410
