The popularity of clip in hair extensions, like the ones on offer from ClipHair, continues to soar, precisely because more ladies are choosing to experiment with their locks. You can buy clip in hair pieces in almost any colour, length, and style that are super easy to apply, extremely affordable, and do not require a lot of maintenance.
This guide to some of the most important hair extension style tips will show you how to use clip in accessories to transform your look.

Step One – the first step to style perfection is picking out a hair piece that fits your natural style and colour. This is an easy thing to do, just as long as you keep a close eye on which tone you need to be browsing for. You should have no trouble finding a matching colour at ClipHair, because we stock extension pieces in everything from chestnut brown to bright red. The best place to look for a match is the mid-section lengths of your hair.
Step Two – once you’ve found the perfect clip in hair piece, gently split your tresses into two neat sections. Then, use a fingertip to create a horizontal divide from your right to left temples. You should now be left with the top half of your hair neatly sectioned off and the bottom half left nice and loose.
Step Three – take the clip in hair extension piece and snap open the easy grip fasteners or slides. Now, carefully line these fasteners up with the horizontal parting. To clip them into place, apply a small amount of pressure; you should not need to push too hard. If you are planning to wear more than one extension, repeat these steps. The more extension pieces you wear, the longer and more voluminous your style will appear.

Step Four – almost finished now, so let the top half of your locks down from the tie. Use your fingers to blend your natural hair with the extensions. You can brush or comb the new hair, but you will need to be careful and avoid pulling too hard. For a wonderfully bouncy and romantic style, pop some oversized rollers in and leave the curls to set for around half an hour.
Step Five – the time has come to step looking utterly divine and start turning some heads. The best way to secure and hold your extensions in place once applied is with a generous spritz of hairspray. Also, to keep them looking fabulous for as long as possible, try to avoid twirling and fiddling with your locks too often. This is especially important for girls who prefer poker straight hair, because the moisture in your fingertips will encourage faster curling.
With the festive season hot on our heels, there has never been a better time to experiment with clip in hair extensions. The variety on offer is something to behold and it makes hair extensions the ideal Christmas treat for yourself or for a friend. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get creative with your hair girls!
