Clip-in extensions are known for their ease of use. At Beyond the Beauty, it’s no secret that we’re big fans. But, using clip in hair extensions is still intimidating for some people. The idea of human hair extensions can seem overwhelming – what if you put them in wrong? What if it doesn’t look natural? What if you can’t achieve the overall look you’re going for?
There are dozens of worrisome questions you can ask yourself about the extensions we offer at Beyond the Beauty. But, the good news is that there are a few clip in extension hacks you can try, to not only make wearing them a great experience, but to leave you looking your best.
Clip Closely and at an Angle
One mistake a lot of people make with new extensions is using them sporadically, where you feel you ‘need them most.’ While that can work, it’s not going to give you the look you’re probably imagining. Extensions are designed to not only add length, but body and volume to your existing style. With that in mind, make the most of the clip-ins by clipping them close together throughout your head. This may require you to purchase a few extra, but the fullness of your hair will be well worth it by the time you’re done.
If you really want the extensions to look more natural, and frame your face, try clipping them in at a slight angle. This will offer more depth and shape. Instead of just falling straight, the angled look will make it seem like you’ve gotten your hair cut and styled. You’ll create flawless layers that surround your face, and this method will even help the extensions look more well-blended with your actual hair.
Curl and Style
One of the best things you can do with extensions is curl them. It adds so much volume, bounce, and personality. Curl them with an iron on low to medium heat before clipping them in. By doing this, you can see how the curls will work, and where they’ll look best. Once everything is in place, you can brush through the curls as much as you’d like, leaving them fully intact, or going for more of a wavy, bouncy look. Again, this will help the extensions to look even more natural, and you’ll love the boost it provides.
No matter your reason for choosing clip-in extensions, it’s important to know the ins and outs of how you can make the most of them. More often than not, all it takes is a few little tips and tricks to take your extensions from looking ‘okay’ to looking absolutely fantastic. Give these little hacks a try the next time you want to take your extensions to the next level. With just a little bit of extra effort, you can change your look entirely, boost your confidence, and be happy with the investment you’ve made – one you can use and enjoy over and over again.
