Clip in or Clip not

Clip in or Clip not

I have a client that was growing her hair out for her wedding. She wanted long, luscious hair that could be styled into an up-do. After a year of growing, her hair did not get to the length she needed. I suggested we get her clip in extensions so that she could have the hair she always dreamed of for her big day. Clip in’s are a wonderful way to transform your look without having to commit to a big change. Say you want to add a fun color to your hair like blue, pink or purple. Don’t put your hair thru the hair color change, just buy clip in’s. Or for a fun night out get a clip in bang and completely change your look. For the guys out there that want to add a little lift or dimension to their hair get a small clip in and take your style to the next level.

When buying clip in’s there are three things that you need to remember:
1. If you aren’t purposely trying to use funky colors try and find clip in’s that are a good match to your hair color.
2. Buy real human hair or remy hair. While these are pricier then using synthetic the advantage of using human hair is that you can dye it, curl it, flat iron it and the hair will not have the waxy look that synthetic hair does.
3. Make sure your hair is long enough to cover the clip ins and that your hair in a way that the extensions look like they are part of your hair. Nothing is uglier then when you see a girls track.

This entry is going to be part of a series called “If You Can’t Achieve It Weave It”. There are so many ways now that women and men can enhance their hair with extensions, clip ins, fusions and weaves. Check out next week when I talk about fusions….thanks!
